BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Scream 4 sends long-suffering protagonist Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) back to her home town of Woodsboro as part of her book tour. Yes, Sidney is now a published author. Presumably of a book about surviving pop-culture-obsessed serial killers, which is a surprisingly crowded market. Filling out the cast of disposable cleavage/sacks of meat and blood are Anna Paquin, Kristen Bell, Alison Brie, Aimee Teegarden, and several other actresses whose phone numbers I would like.
So thanks to being run by a group of people who don't know the meaning of the phrase "leave well enough alone," the Scream juggernaut will keep trucking along whether you want it or not. And much as I really did enjoy Scream 4, this really doesn't some necessary
It's been a good year to be a computer animated movie. Well, relatively speaking. While overall sales numbers continue to slump, CG entries have floated to the top to take number one four weekends so far this year. And three of those movies currently rank in the top five money makers of the year to date with newcomer Rio hot on their heels.
Itís a sequel thatís been eleven years in the making, but this weekend horror master Wes Craven has at least unleashed Scream 4 on the world. We think itís the best installment in the franchise since the first one, but after eleven years, what we really want to know is what you think. Talk about the movie and vote in our poll here.
Itís pretty crazy to think that Wes Cravenís Scream came on the scene 15 years ago. In that time, a lot of things have changed and that goes for the franchiseís cast as well. While Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courtney Cox are all back for Scream 4, theyíre joined by the next generation of stars, including Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin and Anthony Anderson.
For a long time movies that operated as middle fingers toward some previous effort were almost always straight comedy spoofs. That all changed in 1996 with Scream, a wildly successful, imaginative horror film that commented on the genre it was also firmly a part of
This Rotten Week has a few familiar folks up to the same old tricks. Wes Craven gives us another dose of Sidney Prescott and Blue Sky Studios dishes out more CGI animation. Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer.
With the hotly anticipated release of Scream 4 next Friday, Dimension will be kicking marketing up a notch despite the fact that itís already on everyoneís minds. A new TV spot has cropped up online and shows off just what to expect from this movie--more of the same.
On the other hand, the pressure is on for Craven. Iím not the only moviegoer whoís a dedicated franchise fan, meaning that in Scream 4 Craven doesn't just have to do the original films justice, but heís got to offer something new. No, the general story of Scream 4
Earlier today I had the pleasure of talking to Scream 4 director Wes Craven himself about bringing back Ghostface. Youíll have to wait a bit to read the full conversation, but hereís something that might hold you over; there was no ending our chat without bringing up the potential of additional films
In the new franchise entry previous cast members team up with a new batch of potential victims to fight off the ever-present Ghostface Killer. In these three new clips from the film, you wonít see a lot of Ghostface, but you will see a lot of familiar cast members rather obviously turning things over...
It was only on Wednesday that we received a whole batch of new images from Wes Craven's upcoming horror sequel, Scream 4, but apparently Dimension Films is really excited to promote it. Today not only do we get high res versions of the Wednesday stills, but two new ones and a television spot.
Given the nature of the Scream franchise, the stills we've seen thus far from the newest installment, Scream 4, have been fairly tame. Sure, there's always been the threat of violence, but most of the stills have consisted of people just standing around looking scared. That changes today.
Crammed with random celebrity cameos, a whole slew of up-and-coming actors and the promise of seemingly endless snark and gore, Scream 4 is looking like a major bright spot in the spring movie season as we get closer to its April 15 release date
With a combination new and old cast, a reinvigorated director and palpable fan excitement, I fully expect Scream 4 to do very well. It opens on April 15th, and if all goes well, it should be the first of three featuring this cast
