The trailer for the new Scream movie has dropped
The trailer for the new Scream the film finally fell. Watch it below:
The fifth installment of the horror franchise sees Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette reprise their roles as Sidney Prescott, Gale Weathers and Dewey Riley, with another deranged masked killer on the loose.
The trailer sees Dewey calling Sidney to bring her back to Woodsboro, with the couple joining forces with Gale to unmask the murderer.
In addition to the original trio, we are also introduced to a bunch of new stars, including Jenna Ortega (You), Jack Quaid (The boys) and Dylan Minnette (13 reasons why).
When discussions were underway about the film in 2020, there were concerns that Cox et al might not be interested in returning.
Speaking previously about the film, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, who co-directed the film with Tyler Gillett, said it just wouldn’t have worked without them.
“They weren’t throwaway roles; they were very, very important and the core of what was great about the script.
“We couldn’t imagine the movie without any of them so not being perfectly locked in from the start was really scary.”
Discussing the script for the new film, Cox said The Drew Barrymore Show: “It’s Scream. These directors, I mean God, the directors [Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett] are just amazing.
“It’s a new franchise. It’s hip, it’s scary, it’s just a new Scream. It’s not a reboot, it’s not a remake, it’s just a brand new launch. . I think it’s going to be fantastic. “
This upcoming film is also the first in the series not to be directed by Wes Craven, who died in 2015.
Cox said it was quite difficult to reprise his role without having him there.
She said: “From the second I stepped on set I felt extremely moved and felt a real lack and longing for him.
“He had such a [a] special quality, kind and caring about him, not to mention his incredible talent as a filmmaker.
“I admired Wes immensely professionally but also as a friend.
“I think Wes would be so happy with the way Matt [Bettinelli-Olpin] and Tyler restarted this franchise. “
