Peacock is getting even bigger in October, with more new movies and TV shows to watch–including original content. October means Halloween, which means plenty of horror is being added to the mix–but if that’s not your thing, there’s also plenty of variety.
On October 14, Halloween Ends will be hitting Peacock and also theaters. The conclusion to the Halloween franchise features Jamie Lee Curtis returning to play Laurie Strode–the role that made her a story 40 years ago–and she says the film will be a “fitting conclusion” to the franchise’s legacy. All that’s really known about the film’s plot comes via its synopsis, which reads in part: “Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since his last brutal rampage… when a young man, Corey Cunningham, is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control, once and for all.”
Otherwise, among the classic content joining Peacock that’s most definitely not horror but certainly worth your time, the Back to the Future trilogy, E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial, Galaxy Quest, and the full Godfather trilogy are all coming to the streaming service on October 1. Though these are all classics today, Galaxy Quest may still be something of a sleeper hit. The 1999 sci-fi comedy is a parody and homage to classic sci-fi films and series, and teams Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, and Sam Rockwell as the reunited cast of a fictional sci-fi show–who winds up being drawn into a real interstellar conflict by aliens who thought the show was an accurate documentary. It’s great fun–and might also inspire some costume ideas.
