The card on the Regal Cinemas website reveals that Scream 6 will also be released in 3D, for the first time in the history of this franchise. It is clear that the success of Avatar:
The Water Way has triggered a new interest of the studios in stereoscopy, as evidenced by the imminent release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in 3D. The hope is that these are not hasty conversions, as happened at the time of the first Avatar .
However, the card also shows the duration of the film, equal to 123 minutes: it will therefore be the longest chapter of the saga, a record previously held by Scream 2 , which stood at 120 minutes. Last year’s Scream lasted 114 instead .
The directors Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin have declared that the new Ghostface will be “more audacious and brazen”: not surprisingly, already in the teaser and in the trailer we have seen him attacking his victims even in the midst of people, on the subway or in a store. As we know, the sixth film will take place in New York City, where Sam Carpenter ( Melissa Barrera ), Tara Carpenter ( Jenna Ortega ) and the other survivors of the last slaughter in Woodsboro have moved to study. The killer will wear a visibly ruined mask, and the directors explained that this choice has to do with the “meta” nature of the film.
The release is expected on March 9, 2023 in Italian cinemas, distributed by Eagle Pictures .

Scream in the cinema and on TV
The saga has so far five cinematic chapters released in theaters: the first four were directed by Wes Craven , while the screenplays are almost all by Kevin Williamson (the creator of Dawson’s Creek ), apart from the third film, written by Ehren Kruger . The fifth chapter was instead directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett , who returned for the sixth.
The franchise transitioned to the small screen in 2015, in an MTV series that ran for two seasons. A third season – actually unrelated to the previous two – aired in 2019 on VH1.
