Spoiler-Lite ‘Scream 4’ Plot Synopsis Unmasked

The fourth Scream film, either called Scream 4 or Scre4m, depending on where you look, is rapidly approaching. But even with the April 15 release date coming relatively soon, the film is still in the midst of the post-production process. Test screenings of the Wes Craven-directed horror sequel are underway and the flyer for the test screening has a brand new plot synopsis. There’s nothing too revealing about this, especially if you’ve seen the trailer, so feel free to check it out after the jump. Read More »

Lot of small sequel rumblings and rumors are flying about, so let’s kick things off with one of the few bits that has a substantiated quote. Speaking to MovieMikes, Ernie Hudson says that Bill Murray is part of the holdup around Ghostbusters 3. “I know he really cares about his work,” the actor says, “which is probably why there hasn’t been another Ghostbusters as of yet. Dan and Harold are working on the script. If it happens we will see but Bill has been the hold up. His definition of good is a little bit different than everybody else’s.”

Fortunately, the balance of his work over the past few years (even factoring in stinkers like Garfield and Passion Play) Bill Murray’s definition of ‘good’ is pretty much…good. I’ll take a Bill Murray failure like City of Ember over Year One.

After the break, news and rumors on the long-rumored Trainspotting sequel, the Alien prequel(s) and Scream 4. Read More »

This may be the international version.) Check out the real teaser for Wes Craven‘s new film in the Scream franchise, after the break. Read More »
