We just had time to report the fun online game of Scream, which Paramount Pictures pulls from the hat the final trailer of the film.
Don’t expect big revelations: while containing various unreleased scenes, the trailer is careful not to spoil anything. Also because much of the attention, in its extended commercial duration, is dedicated to the praise of the critics, the same ones that we reported a few days ago .
However, this new incarnation of Ghostface hunts down a group of Woodsboro teenagers, all linked to the characters from the first film: Sidney must then return to action alongside Gale and Dewey to stop the killer. Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (the same ones from Till Death Do Us Part ) have picked up the baton of the late Wes Craven , and it will be interesting to find out if they have prepared anything unsettling. Seeing Ghostface with metal mask and flamethrower is already a novelty, but we hope there is also something more substantial.
The release is expected for January 13 in Italian cinemas, with distribution by Eagle Pictures . You will find the trailer below.
The cast includes Neve Campbell ( Sidney Prescott ), David Arquette ( Dewey Riley ), Courteney Cox ( Gale Weathers ), Melissa Barrera ( Sam Carpenter , Jenna Ortega ( Tara Carpenter ), Jack Quaid ( Richie Kirsch ), Mason Gooding ( Chad Meeks- Martin ), Jasmin Savoy Brown ( Mindy Meeks-Martin ), Dylan Minnette ( Wes Hicks ), Marley Shelton (Deputy SheriffJudy Hicks ), Kyle Gallner ( Vince Schneider ), Mikey Madison and Sonia Ammar .
The screenplay is the work of James Vanderbilt ( Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man ) and Guy Busick ( Til Death Do Us Part, Castle Rock ).
Scream in cinema and on TV
The saga so far has four cinematic chapters, all directed by Wes Craven . The scripts are almost all by Kevin Williamson (the creator of Dawson’s Creek ), apart from the third film, written by Ehren Kruger instead .
The franchise moved to the small screen in 2015, in an MTV series that lasted two seasons. A third season – actually unrelated to the previous two – aired in 2019 on VH1.
