Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a terrifying new killer resurrects the Ghostface mask. As the deaths mount, Woodsboro's new targets must seek help from the survivors of the original Ghostface attacks. Now, only Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), former sheriff Dewey Riley (David Arquette), and reporter Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) can find a way to stop the killer when everyone is a suspect. The film also stars Melissa Barrera, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, and Marley Shelton.

Looking forward to renting this next week from Redbox; the wife and I are big fans of the franchise, and we own the Three-Movie Collection Blu-ray set (plus the fourth film on a standalone Blu).

It didn't get good feedback at all, from what I am reading, which is disappointing, and it left theaters as fast as it went in, which is never a good sign. Why they didn't call this Scream 5 is beyond me...

Because it's more reboot than sequel.

Even though it uses "legacy" characters, it's mainly about new ones.

The studio wants to sell the franchise to a new audience, and calling this a sequel to a 25-year-old movie won't appeal to a younger crowd.

Also, "Scream" did quite well: $81m US, $140m total WW.

$24m budget = nice profit.

It stayed in theaters a couple months. It had pretty decent legs for a horror movie, so I don't know why you think it exited quickly.

Yep, one of the biggest films of the year so far and still tracking in over 200 theaters after 11 weeks. Hardly a quick exit.

I think that the studios don't want to number sequels any more because they don't want to draw attention to how many times they are going to the same well. In terms of marketing, the Star Wars sequels were "The Force Awakens", etc. and not Episodes VII, etc. whereas twenty-some years ago, the marketing highlighted that they were Episodes I, II, and III. Outside of the Iron Man sequels, all the Marvel movies use subtitles and not numbers. Those days are gone because don't want people thinking about how it's Star Wars Part Twelve, Marvel #20 or the upcoming Scream 6.

3rd place at US box office through 1/4 of the year ain't bad. Of course, it won't end up there - won't be in the top 10 by the end of the year - but it belies the notion the movie bombed.

Also, @Kaskade1309 claimed it "didn't get good feedback":

76% critics, 81% audience on RT.

So Kaskade was wrong about reviews, audience reaction and ticket sales.

Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln... :D

The same could be said about Scream 4 and that one was still numbered. Also has the same amount of time since the previous film, 11 years, as Scream 4. 2000-2011/2011-2022. Though I thought both 4 and 5 weren’t very well done.

True, but I think that one cast Sidney in the fore more than 2022 does.

She pops up way earlier in the film and plays a more active role. This one treats the legacy characters in a more tangential manner, IMO.

In any case, the name change is probably more because "S4" flopped and the studio wants to start fresh.

Yeah, I read about that after I posted; I still think there should have been some additional creativity with the titling, which I said about 2018's Halloween and 2011's The Thing.

I must have been mistaken about the exiting element -- seems to have disappeared out of the theaters near us like overnight, but it may have been that I just wasn't paying too much attention.

Either way, looking forward to renting it tomorrow...

We didn't care for part four, either; I can tolerate part three as far as sequels go (the first two are classics, of course, with the first being the best, by far), but once four came around, it felt like the whole "film within a film within a......" tactic had come off the rails. I also didn't like the annoying bitchy female characters leaned on heavily in part four (especially that opening sequence that has you confused as to what's going on until the title card hits the screen, as sexy as those babes were).

I don't put much, if any, stock in Rotten Tomatoes -- and I have good reason for this sentiment (I actually know a couple of people employed there behind the scenes). So there's that.

Further, all the reviews I've personally read about the film, including some feedback from viewers on Redbox's site and elsewhere, were far from promising -- THAT'S what I was basing my commentary on.

I already explained why I had thought the film came and went in a previous post; I don't necessarily think what I wrote makes me "wrong," as you are so passionate to point out.

I will still reserve my opinion about the actual film until I actually see it (hopefully tomorrow night). I will tell you this, though: the wife and I are not going in with high expectations, so take that as you wish.

Indeed...

And that seems to be the problem with most new material coming out of Hollyweird in a proverbial nutshell. :rolleyes:

Regarding the title choice - without really spoiling anything, the movie is very self-referential and very meta about how both the Scream series and horror films in general work. There’s a specific reason that it has the title it has, and that’s paid off with a joke in the film.
