Lionsgate put out the official word today that they will be distributing the highly popular Wes Craven Scream franchise on Blu-ray and the best part? It will be available in just a few weeks!
From the Press Release
Celebrating 15 years in horror, the Scream franchise has a brand new film, Scream 4 – hitting theaters April 15th – as well as the Scream trilogy arriving on Blu-ray Disc for the first time ever on March 29th!
Horror fans will scream like never before as Lionsgate debuts Miramax’s Scream, Scream 2 and Scream 3 in 1080P High Definition and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. From the master of horror, Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street), these horror fan favorites feature an all-star cast of victims including Courteney Cox (TV’s “Cougar Town”), Jada Pinkett Smith (Collateral), Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Neve Campbell (Wild Things).
The first three films of the series will be available on Blu-ray Disc and will include an array of behind the scenes featurettes, audio commentaries by Craven and deleted scenes.
After a series of mysterious deaths befalls their small town, an offbeat group of friends led by Sydney Prescott (Campbell) become the target of a masked killer in this smash-hit “clever thriller” (The Washington Post) that launched the Scream franchise and breathed new life into the horror genre. The Blu-ray Disc features audio commentary, a production featurette, behind the scenes footage, a Q&A with cast and crew plus the theatrical trailer.
Away at college, Sidney Prescott (Campbell) thought she’d finally put the shocking murders that shattered her life behind her… until a copycat killer begins acting out a real-life sequel. Now as history repeats itself, ambitious reporter Gale Weathers (Cox), deputy Dewey (Arquette) and other Scream survivors find themselves trapped in a terrifyingly clever plotline where no one is safe – or beyond suspicion – in this “delicious, diabolical and fun” (Rolling Stone) sequel. The Blu-ray Disc features include audio commentary, deleted scenes with optional audio commentary, outtakes, a featurette and the theatrical trailer.
While Sidney Prescott (Campbell) lives in safely guarded seclusion, bodies begin dropping around the Hollywood set of Stab 3, the latest movie based on the gruesome Woodsboro killings. The escalating terror finally brings Sidney out of hiding, drawing her and the other survivors once again into an insidious game of horror movie mayhem that’s a “suspenseful, clever and very entertaining” (NBC-TV) installment in the wildly popular Scream franchise. The Blu-ray Disc features include audio commentary, deleted scenes and an alternate ending, outtakes, behind the scenes footage and the theatrical trailer.
Each Blu-ray Disc will be $19.99!
