Scream VI trailer: Ghostface wreaks havoc in NYC

You can run. You can hide. You can even leave Woodsboro, But you can’t escape Ghostface. Tis is evident as the masked murderer heads to New York City to wreak havoc among the survivors from Scream V in the trailer for Scream VI.

After surviving the latest Ghostface murders, Sam Carpenter (In the Heights‘s Melissa Barrera) and her half-sister, Tara Carpenter (Wednesday’s Jenna Ortega), flee Woodsboro in favor of the Big Apple to start a new life. The sisters are joined by twins Mindy Meeks-Martin (Yellowjackets’s Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Chad Meeks-Martin (Love, Victor’s Mason Gooding), who also survived the attacks.

In Scream V, Sam was revealed to be the illegitimate daughter of Billy Loomis, the original Ghostface from Scream. In the trailer, Sam comments about a “darkness” inside of her that followed her to New York City and will keep coming for her and her friends. That darkness is a bloodier, more violent Ghostface, who follows the Carpenters into a bodega and viciously kills multiple people at the beginning of the trailer.

Courtney Cox (Friends) reprises her role as Gale Weathers, the legendary news anchor who has outlived numerous attacks by Ghostface. The trailer also marks the return of Kirby Reed (Scream 4’s Hayden Panettiere), who survived a brutal stabbing in Scream 4 and was long thought dead. Noticeably absent from the fold is Neve Campbell (The Lincoln Lawyer), who will not appear as Sidney Prescott due to a contract disagreement.

New additions to the franchise include Dermot Mulroney (Gone in the Night), Samara Weaving (Ready or Not), Henry Czerny (Mission: Impossible), Tony Revolori (Spider-Man: No Way Home), Jack Champion (Avatar: The Way of Water), Liana Liberato (Dig), Josh Segarra (Orange Is the New Black), and Devyn Nekoda (Ginny & Georgia).

"Do you like scary movies?"

The original Scream memorably used that line early in the film to establish Ghostface's incredibly menacing voice. And while the identity of the Ghostface killer has changed in every film, his (or her) methods are always very lethal. Next year, Paramount is reviving the franchise with a new movie simply called Scream, even though it's the fifth entry in the franchise. That's because this isn't a reboot -- it's a revival.

Pennywise the clown wreaks havoc in scary new ‘It’ trailer

It is the children who are in danger in the latest It trailer, but adults will be just as scared by the upcoming horror flick. Warner Bros. released the preview on Thursday, July 27, and it is the stuff of nightmares. With the homicidal clown at the center, It just might just turn us all coulrophobic.

Based on the 1986 Stephen King novel of the same name, the upcoming film will be the first in what will ultimately be a two-part saga. As the trailer shows, the first movie focuses on a small Maine town where children are suddenly being targeted by a terrifying shape-shifting entity. And if that weren't creepy enough, it seems to like lurking around town as a clown.

Metroid should be Nintendo’s next hit adaptation after The Super Mario Bros. Movie

Across film and TV, video game adaptations are becoming increasingly prominent, and the commercial success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie should pave the way for Metroid's time in the sun. Though The Super Mario Bros. Movie is a bit of a superficial adventure, the movie's colorful visuals and reminiscent fun of the source material are more than enough to draw massive crowds.

That box office success should also be a testament to the viability of gaming adaptations in general, and the recent resurgence of Metroid should ride its tailwinds. The latter's recent critical and commercial acclaim from Dread and Prime Remastered for the Switch combined with the storytelling potential of the TV medium could take the Nintendo brand in bold new directions.
