The trailer for the latest instalment in the Scream franchise has just dropped, teasing the return of the notorious killer ‘Ghostface’. Check out the trailer below.
It’s the sixth film in the Scream series, and features Wednesday star Jenna Ortega, as well as Hayden Panettiere, Melissa Barrera, Samara Weaving, Mason Gooding, and – returning once again – Courtney Cox.
The movie is set for release in cinemas on March 10.
This latest film – imaginatively titled Scream VI – takes place in New York and follows some of the survivors of the last movie – released last year – who have made the journey from their previous home in California to the Big Apple.
Melissa Barrera explained: "These kids are running away, and Ghostface is still finding them in the most beautiful city but also the most terrifying because it's so crowded and it can be aggressive.”
Cox returns as Gale Weathers, who is a crime reporter that first appeared way back in the original 1996 film, and she believes that the introduction of New York City as a location also adds to the film’s draw.
She added: "Bringing Ghostface to New York adds an entirely new element to the story,
"Taking the character out of a small town and putting them in the heart of the city that never sleeps is more terrifying than ever."
Wednesday star Jenna Ortega also takes on a main role in the film, with her star definitely on the rise at the moment, playing one of a group of friends attending college in the city that find themselves embroiled a tangle with the mystery murderer.
Explaining how her character gets involved, she said: "At the top of the film we see my character Tara avoiding her trauma and desperately trying to reclaim her teenage experience and become normal college student,
"There's a lot of tension between her and Sam, she feels as though she's too protective and unwilling to allow them both to move on.
“She feels suffocated."
Barrera continued: "Not a lot of time has passed since the last movie,
"Pretty much, the amount of time that we've had between one movie and the other is the amount of time that has passed in their world.
“So the trauma is still very fresh.
“One of my favourite parts about this movie is that we really get to see how the happenings of the last movie affected them.
“We get to really see the baggage that they're carrying now and how each of them is dealing with it differently."
We'll get to find out exactly what she means by that on March 10, when the film is released.
