Fans received their first glimpse at Scream, the latest edition in the long-running franchise of the same name and the first new sequel in a decade, today, despite speculations that the trailer will premiere at an upcoming 25th anniversary celebration.
The trailer is expected to hit theaters this weekend, when it will be paired with prints of Halloween Kills for the best horror movie value. Scream is an intriguing beast, with a lot of returning cast members as well as some fresh faces to extend the franchise’s life if this one goes well. Fans are fortunate to have it at all, given that after the death of series creator Wes Craven, numerous cast members stated that they would be unlikely to return at all.
