Exclusive: Marley Shelton Talks Scream 4 Blu-ray

4 October 2011 4:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marley Shelton plays Sheriff Dewey Riley's right-hand deputy Judy Hicks in Wes Craven's reboot of the popular series, available in stores now

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. »

Scream 4 (2011): Alternate Opening Scene Video: Britt Robertson

3 October 2011 8:12 PM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Scream 4 Alternate Opening Scene Video. The alternate opening scene to Wes Craven‘s Scream 4 (2011) stars Britt Robertson, Aimee Teegarden, and Roger Jackson. Scream 4‘s plot synopsis: “Sidney Prescott, now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey and Gale, who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill and her Aunt Kate. Unfortunately, Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.”

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, »

The iconic horror director Wes Craven brings home the latest installment of this popular slasher franchise on Blu-ray and DVD October 4th

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 clich&#233 there is. But at the end of the film, none »

Exclusive: Scream 5 Is Happening Says Wes Craven

27 September 2011 3:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We just got off the phone with Wes Craven, who is out promoting the Scream 4 Blu-ray and DVD, in stores October 4th. When Scream 4 was coming to theaters last spring, it was rumored to be the beginning of a whole new trilogy. The sequel didn't fare quite as well at the box office as some hoped. This had many speculating that the popular franchise was over, and that the so-called new trilogy would not play out on screens as intended.

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 »

Box Office Beatdown: Fast Five Drives Away with $83 Million

1 May 2011 12:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Weekend Box Office

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 »

Ryan Turek Talks Still Screaming

28 April 2011 10:42 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Ryan Turek, Editor-in-Chief of Shock Till You Drop and good chum of ours, has been hard at work. Between his upcoming Hellraiser doc and his Scream documentary, Still Screaming: The Ultimate Scary Movie Retrospective, debuting, this is a gent who hasn’t let any grass grow under his feet.

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. »

Box Office Beatdown: Rio Flies to the Top with $26.5 Million

24 April 2011 11:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Weekend Box Office

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? »

Box Office Beatdown: Rio Bests Scream 4 with $40 Million

17 April 2011 11:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Weekend Box Office

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 »

Box Office Predictions: Will Rio Fly Away with the Top Spot?

15 April 2011 1:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Predicted Weekend Box Office

Rio $40 millionScream 4 $30 millionHop $10.8 millionHanna $7.1 millionArthur $16 millionSoul Surfer $6.2 millionSource Code $5.5 millionInsidious $5.4 millionYour Highness $3.7 millionLimitless $3.2 million

Will there ever be a weekend during which a completely non-animated movie takes the top spot at the box office? I don't know. But it doesn't look like it's going to be this weekend. The tropical bird-tastic Rio will be swooping into cineplexes, and will likely fly off with about $35-40 million. I think based on how marvelously Hop has managed to do over the past two weeks that folks are still hungry for their animated fantasias. Rio seems like it's much better than the bunny movie, so I think it will play really strong. Maybe even more than the $40 million. This comes from the creative team behind the Ice Age movies, so a built in fan base should be ready to turn out as well. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs grossed an astounding $886 million. »

"Scream 4" hits theaters today. After a decade long absence from cinema screens, series masterminds Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson have engineered a new story that brings your favorite horror movie survivors back for one more scare against the dreaded Ghostface — and if you have any doubts about whether or not the movie is going to work, allow me to gut them like a fish for you.

If you're a "Scream" fan, and if you were thinking about skipping out on round four, don't. Much better than two and three and a lot closer to the quality of the original than you might expect, "Scream 4" is a totally worthwhile trip to the movies. Find out why after the jump!

'Scream 4' opens today, so join PopWatch Rewind in a look back at the great, decent, and utterly terrible original 'Scream' films

15 April 2011 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The year was 1996, and the slasher-film genre was dying. Long-running franchises like Halloween, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare on Elm Street had long since spiralled into the upper numerals of self-parody. Thirty-six years after Janet Leigh was stabbed to death in Psycho, and almost twenty years after her daughter Jamie Lee Curtis taught us that virginity is a killer-shield in Halloween, people just seemed a bit tired of the genre built on the semi-Freudian foundation of “Hot Chicks Being Stabbed.” And then Scream changed everything. Directed by Elm Street auteur Wes Craven, written by pop-culture savant Kevin Williamson, Scream poked fun at slasher films, »

New Scream 4 Still And Cast List Order Reveals Lucy Hale And Co In Opening Scene

5 April 2011 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Dimension Films have released another still from the impending 'Scream 4' theatrical release. Alas this one is not particulary interesting much like quite a lot of it's predecessors, however, does give us a glimpse of Lucy Hale and Shenae Grimes in mouth-gawping action. Now, could this potentially be the opening scene to the upcoming slasher sequel from Wes Craven? We think it's pretty much a definite that these two babes are going to get visited by Ghostface in the first sequence. This fact is just strengthened by the interesting cast order currently listed at the IMDb. The first four names on the billing sheet are Lucy Hale as Sherrie, Roger Jackson as The Voice, Shenae Grimes as Trudie and Dane Farwell as Ghostface. Now, that has got to be spoilerific! Hale herself did let slip in an interview last January that she would be involved in the opening »
