What’s your favorite scary movie?
The excitement around the upcoming fifth installment to the Scream franchise is ever-growing ahead of the trailer release on October 12, and to help fans get through the last couple of waiting days Entertainment Weekly has released several first look photos of the cast. A poster for Scream was also unveiled October 10. The new photos reunite us with fan favorites as well as a first look at the new faces to join the franchise.
While it was initially a nail-biter for Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett to see if three integral members of the original cast would join, their dreams came true with the return of Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette. The fifth installment, Scream, is the first movie in the franchise’s 25 years that is not directed by the late horror genius, Wes Craven. Thankfully, audiences will get to see final-girl Sidney Prescott, resourceful journalist Gale Weathers, and the brave lawman Dewey Riley face off against Ghostface once again.
Jack Quaid (The Boys), Melissa Barrera (In the Heights) and Jenna Ortega (You) join the ensemble headed by Campbell, Cox, and Arquette. Dylan Minette (Goosebumps), Mason Gooding (Let It Snow), Kyle Gallner (Ghosts of War), Jasmin Savoy Brown (Love), and Mikey Madison (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) are also bringing new faces to the franchise. Marley Shelton is also returning from Scream 4 as Deputy Judy Hicks.
Check out the first look photos below.
