One of the most hotly anticipated movies on the horizon, the Scream franchise returns to theaters on January 14, 2022, the new movie coming from the fresh creative team of directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett, as well as producer Chad Villella, the three members of the filmmaking group known as Radio Silence (Ready or Not, V/H/S, Southbound).
On a related note, this year marks the 25th anniversary of Wes Craven’s original Scream, and a 25th anniversary screening will be taking place at The Prince Charles Cinema in the UK on October 11. (The original movie is also coming back to theaters here in the states.)
What’s interesting about the Prince Charles Cinema event is that the theater’s official listing for the 25th anniversary screening suggests that the trailer for “Scream 4” is on the way!
The listing teases, “To make the evening just that little bit more special everyone in the audience will receive a free gift with their ticket and the chance to be one of of the first audiences in the world see the trailer for the next installment in the franchise, Scream .”
There’s no guarantee that the trailer is also coming online on the road to Halloween, but we’re thinking there’s a good chance this means we’ll all be seeing Ghostface again in October.
Dylan Minnette (Goosebumps), Mason Gooding (Let It Snow), Kyle Gallner (Ghosts of War), Jasmin Savoy Brown (“Love”) and Mikey Madison (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) recently joined an ensemble that also includes Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, David Arquette and Courteney Cox who will return as Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers, as well as new cast members Jack Quaid (“The Boys”), Melissa Barrera (“In The Heights”) and Jenna Ortega (“You”).
