Watch: ‘Scream’ Legacy Sequel’s Final Trailer Drops Online
The final trailer for this week’s Scream hypes up the thrills with the help of glowing critical reviews. January might typically be a slow month for movies, but one of the most anticipated films of 2022 arrives in theaters this Friday.
Scream looks to revitalize the long-running slasher franchise with an original take that still holds ties to the previous films. It’s the first movie in the series to not be directed by the late Wes Craven; instead, Ready or Not filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are taking over. Based on the early reactions to Scream, they’ve been quite successful in their efforts.
The new film returns to the tragedy-prone town of Woodsboro, where something evil is afoot once more. A new Ghostface killer is slashing up victims, and only those who faced that familiar mask before are equipped to face them. That means original Scream trio Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), Dewey Riley (David Arquette), and Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox) all assemble to help the newest generation of potential victims survive their encounters with Ghostface. Said new generation includes Jack Quaid, Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, Dylan Minnette, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Kyle Gallner, Sonia Ben Ammar, and Mikey Madison.
Scream hits theaters Friday.
