It’s hard to encounter a “first” in a twenty-five-year-old franchise. But Scream has done it. Marking the first film without star Neve Campbell, directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are expanding their playground as they migrate the small-town story to one of the busiest places in the world: New York City.
After a subway teaser last month, the appropriately titled Scream VI has gotten its first full-length trailer, and fans won’t be disappointed.
Saddled with what appears to be a longneck rifle, Ghostface is more brutal and deadly than ever before. Within two minutes we witness at least three murders and a haunting grocery store montage that will be the source of many nightmares.
Though Sidney is MIA, we catch our first glimpse of Hayden Panettiere’s Kirby Reed, a surprise Scream 4 survivor. And as we’ve come to expect, the elusive phone call remains, only this time Courtney Cox’s Gale Weathers is on the other end.
Who lives behind the battered Ghostfast mask and how are they connected to Woodsboro will all be answered when Scream VI slashes into theaters on March 10.
