Scream 4 is available on Blu-ray and DVD today. While this self-stated 'reboot' of sorts brings the original trio of Sheriff Dewey (David Arquette), Journalist Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), and eternal victim Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) back to the town of Woodsboro for another mysterious round of "Guess the Killer", it also introduces a whole slew of new characters. What most of these characters have in common is that they eventually succumb to the deadly antics of the now iconic Ghostface killer. What makes Deputy Judy Hicks different is that she lives to see the end of the movie, becoming one of the few people to survive a Scream outing. We recently caught up with actress Marley Shelton, the actress who plays Judy, to discuss this luck of the draw.
We previously posted the Scream 2010: Scream 4 Teaser Trailer.
This alternate opening scene to Scream 4 does not imbue me with any desire to see this film. Its cool seeing Aimee Teegarden on the big screen though.
Scream 4 also stars Lucy Hale, Shenae Grimes, Dane Farwell, Anna Paquin,

Arriving just in time for Halloween is director Wes Craven's horror sequel Scream 4, which continues this popular franchise on Blu-ray and DVD October 4th. Ten years have passed, and Sidney Prescott, now a best selling author, returns to the town of Woodsboro to face the masked killer Ghostface in what may or may not be their final confrontation.
We caught up with Wes Craven to talk about this long-awaited home video release, the possibility of more sequels, and the Vespa accident that made him realize he's been doing it right all these years in terms of gory special effects.
Here is our conversation.
Throughout Scream 4, the characters run a commentary on every single horror cliché there is. But at the end of the film, none
Well, Wes Craven tends to think the contrary. He is a firm believer in Scream 5, and says that 'yes', the movie will more than likely get made sometime in the near future.
"Yes. The odds are that there will be (a Scream 5). It is something that Bob Weinstein wants to do. He tends to do what he wants to do. So I am inclined to think that there

Here's what the critics have to say about Scream 4: "Pure genius." (Richard Roeper, RichardRoeper.com) "The Best 'Scream' since the original! Funny, clever and scary as hell.
Fast Five $83.6 millionRio $14.4 millionMadea's Big Happy Family $10 millionWater for Elephants $9.1 millionProm $5 millionHoodwinked Too! Hood Vs. Evil $4.1 millionSoul Surfer $4.1 millionInsidious $2.8 millionHop $2.2 millionScream 4 $2.1 million
It's been a boffo weekend for Fast Five. This big budget car sequel seems to have welcomed the summer blockbuster season into the box office. It managed to crank out a spectacular $83 million. Add in international takes and it's grossed $165 million. This is particularly impressive because this surprisingly well-reviewed crowd-pleaser has managed to top the previous entry in the series which made $71 million on opening weekend.
In other news, Rich Ross of Disney is no doubt tucking his tail between his legs after his first attempt at creating a new franchise bombed big time. Prom was an utter disaster. They had predicted a $9 million opening but instead the tween film debuted to a very disappointing $5 million. It seems this won't be getting the High School Musical
And we were lucky enough to jabber with him, at great length, about the weird, wild experience of turning the Scream franchise’s story into an engaging feature film, featuring Wes Craven, Neve Campbell, Liev Schreiber, Henry Winkler, Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy, Laurie Metcalf, Parker Posey, Scott Foley and many others.
I think we’ll take the “On:” format for this one. Cool?
And a One and a Two and a…
On “Why Scream?”
“Obviously the first Scream definitely held a lot of strength in my eyes. I was there in film school, New York, in ’96 when it first came out.
Rio $26.8 millionMadea's Big Happy Family $26 millionWater for Elephants $17.5 millionHop $12 millionScream 4 $7 millionAfrican Cats $6 millionSoul Surfer $5.5 millionInsidious $5 millionHanna $5 millionSource Code $4.8 million
It was another winning weekend for the movie industry with box office receipts up an estimated 34% from this time last year making everyone hope the 2011 slump is over. Rain in much of the country no doubt helped encourage moviegoers to buy a ticket and stay indoors.
You can't keep a good bird down evidently. Rio was the champ for the second weekend running. It's $26.5 million haul was enough to beat out Madea's Big Happy Family that opened to a robust $26 million. However, Tyler Perry's sixth cross-dressing film performed under expectations. Many had been projecting a $30 million opening weekend but it wasn't able to pull that off. The last two movies featuring his popular Madea character had opened at $41 million and $30 million. Are audiences getting tired of Madea?

The saying goes, “There are no more original ideas”. Whether you agree or not, there are still films that push boundaries, tell original stories and, especially in the horror genre, scare the hell out of us. Wes Craven continues his Scream saga by stating the obvious – these films rehash the same story line and really aren’t that scary. Then he presents us with exactly that. "Scream 4" is essentially a remake of the original with a few minor changes. Craven at least has the decency to make fun of the franchise in the first ten minutes of the film but that could be more to his own benefit--it comes off as more of a copout than a clever plot device.
Sidney is back, this time healed of her mental and
Rio $40 millionScream 4 $19.3 millionHop $11.2 millionSoul Surfer $7.4 millionHanna $7.3 millionArthur $6.9 millionInsidious $6.9 millionSource Code $5.5 millionThe Conspirator 3.9 millionYour Highness $3.9 million
The headline news for box office watchers this weekend is that it's the first to end the slump. Ticket totals had been averaging below the previous year's take most every weekend this year so far. The estimated $139 million haul is well above the same weekend last year which topped out at $119 million.
Rio was the unsurprising big winner at the Us box office this weekend with a $40 million take, right on track with the estimates going into Friday. The tropical bird film earned another $53 million overseas. Add that to its initial $80 million already earned (it had been released in some international markets prior to its Us debut) and the birds have managed to rack up an impressive $168 million so far. Not bad!
Meanwhile, Scream 4 was projected to do around $27 million but
