“Scream 4” trailer promises “extreme” horror, says rules have changed


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Earlier this week, we posted a link to handheld footage of a “Scream 4” trailer that aired at the Scream Awards. An official trailer was expected with a few days, and it arrives this morning. What we didn’t expect was additional footage, which this new reel serves up on a bloody platter.

The clip opens with original “Scream” queen Neve Campbell back on the telephone trading barbs with Ghostface, the killer who has stalked Sidney Prescott since 1996. The lingo in the trailer seems to suggest the self-referential humor of the first film, where Matthew Lillard and Jamie Kennedy’s film nerds predicted what would happened based on the thousands of horror movies they’d screened over the years.

“There are still rules, but the rules have changed,” one characters claims. “The killer has to be way more extreme.”

That sounds like a promise. Will Wes Craven be able to keep it?

The fourth “Scream” looks to take advantage of a new generation’s tendency to record everything on a handheld device. That gives Craven and crew a new avenue to explore. He also has plenty of new cast members joining Campbell, David Arquette and Courtney Cox. Look for Kristen Bell, Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, Anthony Anderson, Marley Shelton, Adam Brody and Allison Brie to meet the pointy end of Ghostface’s blade.

Oh, and virgins can die now.

“Scream 4” will be in theaters on April 15, 2011.
