Blumhouse’s Jason Blum to Visit Australia This October!
Universal Pictures Australia have just announced that they’ll be bringing Blumhouse Productions’s Jason Blum to Sydney this October 4th & 5th to meet with press to discuss his Blumhouse brand and various upcoming productions, including the highly anticipated HALLOWEEN.
Jason, a two-time Academy Award-nominee is responsible for some of this decade’s most successful and revered genre films including GET OUT and SPLIT along with enduring franchises like THE PURGE and INSIDIOUS. Blumhouse’s combined output has grossed a staggering $3.6 billion globally and has fast become the name for horror in Hollywood.
His multi-media company is known for pioneering a new model of studio filmmaking: producing high-quality micro-budget films. Blumhouse’s model began with the original PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, which was made for $15,000 and grossed close to $200 million worldwide, making it the most profitable film in Hollywood history.
Jason’s next project is Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s HALLOWEEN, which sees Jamie Lee Curtis return to her iconic role as Laurie Strode and going head-to-shape with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped the babysitter murders on Halloween night four decades ago.
The film made its global debut at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness program last weekend and has been gathering tremendous praise with some critics declaring the best HALLOWEEN films since John Carpenter’s 1978 classic.
While Jason will be in the country to promote the upcoming release of HALLOWEEN primarily with press, we hope their may be a public appearance or two on the cards…stay tuned!
HALLOWEEN releases in Australian cinemas on Thursday October 25th.
