Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette come to the aid of young victims of Ghostface.
“It’s always someone you know”, warned the poster new Scream, which will be released on January 12, 2022 in theaters. Since the time (the first part dates from 1996), we know the rules: Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) is again the target of the masked killer Ghostface, just like Gale and Dewey, played by Courteney Cox and David Arquette. However, it is not them that the assassin mainly targets in this new version, but a young girl played by Melissa Barrera (Where we come from). She is surrounded by other comedians unseen in the franchise, such as Jenna Ortega (You), Jack Quaid (The Boys), Jasmin Savoy Brown (Leftovers) and Dylan Minnette (12 Reasons Why).
For Halloween, spend the night in Scream’s house
“You talk to Sidney Prescott, of course I have a gun.”
The first trailer immediately plays with the codes of the series, remaking the famous intro scene of the original film by Wes Craven, where a young victim played by Drew Barrymore received a disturbing phone call in his kitchen before being violently murdered. In 2022, the teenager who deals with the killer does not pick up, continuing to text her friend before discovering that it is indeed someone who wants to harm her who seeks to get in touch with her. She then tries to block access to her house using her cell phone. In vain. Then Sidney enters the scene, this new crime pushing her to return to her hometown of Woodsboro to help the young people targeted by Ghostface.
Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Busick, this opus is thought of as a tribute to Wes Craven, who died in 2015. Kevin Williamson returns to production, and in English, Roger L. Jackson still lends his voice to Ghostface.
