Here we go again. Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette are back for Scream 5 and the stakes in Woodsboro are higher than ever.
âIt’s happening, three attacks so far. Do you have a gun? Dewey Riley of Arquette asks Campbell’s Sidney Prescott in the trailer, released Tuesday, October 12.
She replies, “I’m Sidney Prescott, of course I have a gun.”
Sidney then returns home to meet Samantha Carpenter (Melissa Barrera), the last killer target in a Ghostface mask.
âI experienced that, a lot. It’s your life now, which means that anyone is going to keep coming for you, âwarns Sidney.
Cox is also reprising his role as Gale Weathers. “Are you ready for this?” Sidney asks his foe-turned-friend, who admits, “For that?” Never.”
It is then revealed that the new attacks are all “related to the original killers,” which goes well with the film’s tagline, “It’s still someone you know.”
The final installment of the horror film also stars Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Sonia Ammar. The Scream franchise, led by the late Wes Craven, originally hit theaters in 1996, celebrating its 25th anniversary with a Special Edition that will be released via a newly remastered Blu-ray on Tuesday, October 19.
“I wish he would live forever, because I love to know that this universe is spinning and Scream is inside â, original screenwriter Kevin williamson recently said Us weekly exclusively on the fifth film. “I love that they keep having Halloween because it’s the movie – Scream is a tribute to Halloween. and i hope they never stopped doing Halloween movies. I hope they never stop.
Skeet Ulrich and Matthew Lillard, who played Stu and Billy, respectively, in the movie OG, also honored the upcoming anniversary during a joint interview with We earlier this month.
âI think it’s super symbolic of our youth. We kind of had made movies before and had experiences, but nothing like that, âsaid Lillard, 51,. âWe were babies. â¦ There is a sweetness in the film for all of us because it’s such an important part of our youth that it holds a special place and where we were then. There were no cell phones, no Instagrams, Facebooks, or that bullshit. So you were together and we had dinner together every weekend and we’d get out of work at six in the morning and kind of go have a beer in David Arquette’s room.
Scream 5 hits theaters on January 14, 2022.
