Pick a mask…any mask.
As always, it’s a deadly guessing game. Who’s behind the Ghostface mask? It’s always someone you know. But three new Scream posters unveiled this week take the game to a new level.
The posters, courtesy of cbr.com and seen on this page, show the legacy characters–Neve Campbell’s Sidney Prescott, Courteney Cox’ Gale Weathers and David Arquette’s Dewey Riley–holding the iconic white mask.
Is it a clue? A red herring? Another publicity stunt? Fans will have to wait until the next Scream hits theaters Jan. 14, 2022 to find out.
This fifth installment in the Scream franchise–directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick–takes place 25 years after those horrible murders rocked Woodsboro. Now, “a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past.”
The film also stars Marley Shelton, Dylan Minnette, Kyle Gallner, Jack Quaid, Mason Gooding, Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Mikey Madison, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Sonia Ammar.
The original 1996 Scream–directed by Wes Craven from a screenplay by Kevin Williamson–follows high school student Prescott as she becomes the target of the murderous Ghostface. The first film raked in $173 million on a $15-million budget and started a franchise that has–to date–grossed more than $600 million worldwide.
