New Scream 4 Trailer Gets Even More Meta
Trailers for the upcoming Scream 4 have a funny way of showing up online long before the studio intends them to; the original teaser trailer popped up online in bootleg form twice before an official version finally landed, and now there's a new trailer-- by some accounts a Canadian one-- that's shown up on YouTube. As with the previous trailer, don't expect this one to last online too long, and cross your fingers for a more official, permanent version to show up soon. Take a look at it below, and meet me after to marvel at how good this actually makes the movie look
The biggest shame in the fact that this will likely be yanked offline soon is that it's a really good trailer, leaning a little harder on the comedy than the teaser did and bringing up a lot more of the meta jokes that are hallmarks of the Scream franchise-- never saying "I'll be right back," being forced to name other horror movies for the killer on the phone, and of course all those reoccurring Ghostface masks. I realize I'm totally the target audience to shell out of this sequel, having been an impressionable tween when the first movie came out, but I admit, I'm actually excited to see this. Scream 4, including original cast members Never Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette plus a ton of younger star cameos (Hayden Panettiere, Emma Roberts, Kieran Culkin, Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin), hits theaters April 15. Everything else you need to know about it can be found in our Blend Film Database.
