A picture is worth a thousand words…and screams.
The latest entry in the classic Scream franchise will land in theaters Jan. 14, 2022, and fans are gratefully lapping up all the teasers coming their way. Just last week, as reported here in Horror News Network, a graphic trailer was released, and now, several tantalizing images have been unveiled. Check out the photos–courtesy of comicbook.com (via Total Film)–on this page.
The new Scream–directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick–picks up 25 years after those brutal murders shocked Woodsboro, and “a new killer dons the Ghostface mask and begins attacking a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past,” according to the official synopsis.
Neve Campbell (as Sidney Prescott), Courteney Cox (as Gale Weathers), David Arquette (as Dewey Riley) and Marley Shelton (as Judy Hicks) return for more mayhem, along with Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Sonia Ammar.
Arquette called this film “a new movie that honors the past films.” It also “incorporates aspects of our world now,” he added, “and what we’ve all experienced and the evolution of the Internet and the evolution of horror films in general. I think it’s gonna be really exciting.”
The original 1996 Scream–directed by Wes Craven from a screenplay by Kevin Williamson–was a box-office sensation, raking in $173 million on a $15-million budget, setting the stage for the franchise that has–to date–grossed more than $600 million worldwide.
