Three New ‘Scream’ Posters Now Tease A Legacy Of Murder


Ghostface is only getting closer, friends. Today we’ve scored a slew of new character posters for the forthcoming Scream film via Collider. This time around, the promos feature the three babes who we know best. And as the new marketing materials continue to remind us, it’s always someone you know.

These slick new one-sheets feature the legacy cast sporting the classic Ghostface visage. Our original crew of survivors are caught red-right-handed here, possibly implicating that one of them may be the murderer this time around. I mean, if it’s always someone you know… who would we know better? Definitely not that kid from 13 Reasons Why.

Check out the killer new Scream posters here:

Scream features an exciting cast of faces new and familiar, not unlike the casting setup of the criminally underrated Scream 4. New cast members include rising stars Jack Quaid (TV’s The Boys), Dylan Minette (TV’s 13 Reasons Why), and Jenna Ortega (Netflix’s upcoming Wednesday series).

When talking with Entertainment Weekly about taking on the Scream mantle, new franchise directors Matt Battinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or Not) seemed to understand the sensitive situation they’re in. 

When asked how they’ve managed the Scream legacy characters, they had this to share:

“It was a wildly anxiety-producing situation,” says Gillet. “They were not disposable roles; they were very, very important and the heartbeat of what was great about the script. We couldn’t imagine the movie without any of them and so not having that perfectly locked-in right off the bat was definitely scary.”

Luckily for us (and them), all three Scream mainstays—Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette—did agree to return for the fifth film. This was mostly due to the quality of the new script, written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick.

Scream will be released on January 14, 2022. Will you be checking out the new film? Let me know on Twitter via @joshkorngut.
