Forty years is a long time to wait for revenge.
Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to the "Halloween" franchise for one final showdown with Michael Myers on October 19. That's exactly six months from now, and the movie's marketing team used the opportunity to share the official poster.

Wow. Old Man Logan. Old Man Rick. Old Man Michael Myers?
This 2018 "Halloween" movie will blow off all of the films after the first "Halloween" (1978). Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, with Judy Greer as her daughter, and Andi Matichak as Laurie's granddaughter -- a potential victim for Michael Myers (Nick Castle).

Here's the brief synopsis:
"Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago."
This "Halloween" was directed by David Gordon Green from a script by Green and Danny McBride.
Danny McBride confirmed the timeline to Yahoo:
"We're kind of ignoring all the films past the first one. It picks up after the first one, but it's sort of an alternate reality. It's as if the first Halloween ended in a slightly different way."
A trailer should be showing up very soon. The movie opens six months from today.
