With the Halloween season nearly upon us, Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group have finally shared the first official teaser poster for Scream, the upcoming fifth installment in the storied horror franchise that stars Neve Campbel in the lead role as iconic scream queen Sidney Prescott.
The poster arrives just hours ahead of this evening's Scream 25th Anniversary screenings, seemingly confirming that attendees will likely be the first people across the globe to see the trailer before its expected debut online on Tuesday.
In addition to Neve Campbell reprising her role as Sidney Prescott, her longtime franchise co-stars Courteney Cox and David Arquette are also set to return as Gale and Dewey Riley, respectively. Marley Shelton has also been confirmed to return as Deputy Judy Hicks from the last installment, while Roger L. Jackson will once again voice Ghostface.
Newcomers to the franchise include Melissa Barrera (Vida; Dos Veces Tú), Jenna Ortega (Jane the Virgin; Iron Man 3), Jack Quaid (The Boys; The Hunger Games), Dylan Minnette (Prisoners; 13 Reasons Why), Mason Gooding (Booksmart; Love, Victor), Mikey Madison (Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood; Better Things), Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers; For The People), Kyle Gallner (Smallville; American Sniper), and newcomer Sonia Ammar.
Radio Silence duo Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or Not) directed the fifthquel with a screenplay from James Vanderbilt (Zodiac; The Amazing Spider-Man) and Guy Busick (Ready or Not; Castle Rock). While franchise creator Kevin Williamson was not involved with the screenplay, he will still serve as an executive producer.
Scream scares its way into theaters on January 14, 2022.
