    Interview: Wes Craven Says The Changing Pace Of Technology Attracted Him to 'Scream 4'

    This week, "Scream 4" hit both Blu-ray and DVD and while we had reservations when we initially saw it, it was still a lot of fun (maybe more-so on home video, which adds even more oomph to the wonderful, meta-textual opening sequence). There are also tons of delicious extras that give you a good pee...

    Wes Craven Says 'Scream 4' Was First In New Trilogy & 'Scream 5' Is Likely

    Well, by most accounts, both critically and commercially, "Scream 4" was a dud. Even though it rounded up all the original players (that were still alive) from the first installment and paired them with a bunch of newcomers, the movie earned the lowest of any entry of the franchise to date and unlik...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Rio' Defeats 'Madea' Before The Summer Onslaught Begins

    Hollywood doesn’t really recognize the seasons as clearly as you. Which is why even though you’re in school, summer begins in May, and even though you still have a full month of spring, that period usually closes in Hollywood around this time every year. In 2011, “summer” is beginning even earlier w...

    Box Office: 'Rio' First 2011 Release To Crack $40 Million Opening Weekend; 'Scream' Goes Quiet

    There’s no way to sugarcoat this: it’s been a dismal year at the box office. Studios have their fingers crossed in regards to a tepid-looking summer schedule, but many were hoping the season could be kick(punch)-started early with a strong April, as two new films were tracking well over $40 million ...

    The Playlist's Guide To Horror Sequels Worth Screaming About

    If it’s one thing that horror movies are good at, particularly in the past decade with our annual “Saw” installments, it’s churning out sequels – like this weekend’s not-very-good “Scream 4.” (To quote “Scream 2” -- “Sequels suck, they are, by definition, inferior product.”) While most of these movi...

    Review: 'Scream 4' Takes A Stab At Relevance, Misses All The Major Arteries

    The idea of reviving the "Scream" franchise seems like a good one, at least on paper. When the original film was released in 1996, it was unlike anything that had come before it – a horror movie where the characters were well versed enough in the conventions of the genre to try and escape alive. Years before Comic-Con hijacked the multiplexes, "Scream" was a movie where basement-dwelling geekiness wasn't just a character trait, it was essential to your survival. The subsequent films, the underrated "Scream 2," which had the characters riffing on sequels, and the disappointing "Scream 3," in which the scales were erroneously tipped too much in...

    Kevin Williamson & Wes Craven Will Wait & See Before Signing On To 'Scream 5' & 'Scream 6'

    Say what you will about the "Scream" franchise, but it's a financial juggernaut. Together, the low-budget meta-horror picks have so far brought in over $500 million and it's no wonder that Dimension Films are returning to the well nearly a decade after "Scream 3." However, the path to "Scream 4" wasn't exactly smooth sailing. Franchise creator Kevin Williamson, who originally penned the script, departed the film last summer, with Ehren Kruger (”Scream 3,” “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”) coming in and making drastic changes to the script with reports of cast members jumping ship or simply being unhappy with the new direction their chara...

    'Scream 4' Writer Kevin Williamson Says He Had A Massive Fight With Weinsteins & Then Hugged It Out

    Last summer, word from the set of "Scream 4" was ugly. Franchise creator Kevin Williamson, who originally penned the script, departed the film, with Ehren Kruger ("Scream 3," "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen") coming in and wielding his mighty shitty pen all over the script. The rumor was that the changes pissed off the cast of the film, so much so that Lauren Graham actually left the film because her role had been greatly reduced and Hayden Panettiere was frustrated that her character had been "dumbed down significantly." Ever since, there have been rumors of reshoots and rewrites and other signs pointing to a plagued production, but wit...

    'Arthur' Poster Is Actually Scarier Than The New 'Scream 4' Poster

    New posters have arrived for a remake and a sequel, both of which, frankly, look dreadful and neither one-sheet has their intended effect.
