The trailer for Scream 5 is here, and it brings back the mainstays of the franchise Courtney Cox, Neve Campbell, and David Arquette. They will be joined by some fresh faces. The franchise kicked off in 1996 with the original movie Scream that first introduced people to the Ghostface killer. The central character is Neve Campbell’s, Sidney Prescott. Campbell has been there in all three sequels and will be there in the fourth one too.

David Arquette and Courtney Cox are also coming back as Dewey Riley, and Gale Weathers shows up in the trailer. Marley Shelton will also return as Judy Hicks. She first appeared in Scream 4. These stars will be joined by some newcomers in Scream 5 who will probably be targeted by Ghostface one by one. The fresh faces include Jenna Ortega, Melissa Barrera, Jack Quaid, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Dylan Minette.


Scream 5 is the first film in the franchise that is not directed by Wes Craven, who passed away in 2015. It is directed by Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, who want to honour Craven’s legacy.

The trailer of the film begins with an extended look at Jenna Ortega’s character. It calls back to the opening scene of the original 1996 film, Then the trailer introduces people to the new group of people and also reveals that Ghostface is after people related to the original killers, Stu Macher and Billy Loomis. Gale, Sidney, and Dewey are roped back in Scream 5, and brutal kills of the movie are then highlighted.


The most interesting thing about Scream 5 is that Ghostface is going after people related to Billy and Stu. It means that Scream might be preparing to introduce the hidden offspring of those key characters. The return to Stu’s home is also interesting as that is the place where the finale of the first film occurred.

All in all, the Scream 5 trailer makes it pretty clear that the film franchise is going back to its roots. Thankfully, the trailer is light on the spoilers, so fans in Australia have no idea what will happen next and will be intrigued throughout the film.
