Paramount Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming Scream, which is actually the fifth entry in the long-running horror franchise first created by the legendary Wes Craven. The last instalment was 2011’s Scream 4, which was the last to be directed by Craven himself before he passed away in 2015.
The synopsis reads:
Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the townâ€™s deadly past.
Neve Campbell (â€œSidney Prescottâ€), Courteney Cox (â€œGale Weathersâ€) and David Arquette (â€œDewey Rileyâ€) return to their iconic roles in Scream alongside Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar.
