Scream won’t be in theaters until just after Christmas, but Paramount and Spyglass Media have released a treat just before Halloween: A trailer for the film that sets up the return of Ghostface, or someone continuing his legacy, who squares off against his old (and very familiar) archenemies.
The synopsis: Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past. Neve Campbell (“Sidney Prescott”), Courteney Cox (“Gale Weathers”) and David Arquette (“Dewey Riley”) return to their iconic roles in Scream alongside Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar.
“It’s happening,” says Arquette’s Dewey following some graphic scenes of Ghostface violence. “Do you have a gun?”
“I’m Sidney Prescott,” responds Campbell. “Of course I have a gun.”
The movie is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett, with a script by James Vanderbilt & Guy Busick based on characters by Kevin Williamson. Producers are William Sherak, James Vanderbilt, and Paul Neinstein.
A Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group presentation of A Project X Entertainment Production, the Radio Silence Film hits theaters Jan. 14, 2022. Check out the Scream trailer above, and the new poster below.
