scream4A Official Scream 4 Trailer Is Here

There has been a bootlegged version of the Scream 4 trailer floating around, thanks to the 2010 Spike Scream Awards, which premiered the trailer while hundreds of fans in the audience sat recording it on their mobile devices.

As always, we here at Screen Rant don’t believe in posting low-quality bootlegs (a single photo is enough to get people riled up about a movie, let alone a fuzzy video), so we’ve been waiting to post a version of the Scream 4 trailer that will at least give the film a fair chance with moviegoers.

For those who don’t know, here’s what Scream 4 entails: director Wes Craven is back at the helm for this installment, as are Scream Trilogy stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courtney Cox. Along with those returning veterans comes a new cast of victims characters comprised of today’s young stars, including Hayden Panettiere, Emma Roberts, Anthony Anderson, Alison Brie, Rory Culkin, Erik Knudsen, Kristen Bell and Anna Paquin.

We’ve included a synopsis for the film below and then the official Scream 4 trailer after that.

SIDNEY PRESCOTT has been living the last few years of her life in relative silence. Now a guidance counselor for Woodsboro High School, her alma mater, she finally lives her life out of the media spotlight.

But with the discovery of a murdered student, Sidney Prescott’s world will once again be ripped apart by the reemergence of Ghost Face.

It’s already been revealed that this fourth film in the Scream franchise will serve as a bridge of sorts, where the older characters we know and (sort of) love effectively “pass the torch” to the younger generation. There also looks to be a good “video voyeur” motif underpinned to this film, reflecting the age of YouTube in much the same way the original Scream dissected the changing tastes of horror movie fans and the emergence of mainstream horror flicks.

Considering how reluctant Neve Campbell was to return to this series, my only question is whether her character, Sidney, will get a dramatic death scene in a heroic moment of self-sacrifice, or whether she’ll once again wipe the floor with Ghostface before walking off into the sunset (only to be murdered in the opening moments of Scream 5, a la the Friday the 13th Part II). I’m betting we’ll get one of those two scenarios.

Scream 4 will hit theaters on April 15, 2011.

  1. Looks like business as usual for Ghostface. But I’ll probably see this.

  2. Ill def see this even though this franchise is TOTALLY getting dragged out. How many people are after Sydney? lol its sooo ridiculous…who is te killer going to be this time her long lost sister? Or wait, maybe her mother never died after all? Or wait, maybe it is Michael Myers and he is doing a crss over thing. lol at this point if peewee herman was ghostface I woudl not be surprised….

    • i think its peewee herman definately.

  3. wow that looked horrible if not comical now. That just dosent work anymore Wes its not 1997 man.

  4. Kristen Bell! It’s got Kristen Bell! Count me in!

    • no it doesn’t dude, if u don’t believe me check on imdb or wikipedia……. lol now i count u out

      • Dude Kristen Bell is in the trailer.

  5. I really liked the other Scream movies, they are good ol’ slasher flicks. No twisted plots that require you to saw off any body part or gag inducing gimicks. I’m looking forward to the new movie. :)


    • Replaced the trailer with a different one that works.


      • It was pulled again. :/

        • Wow,why are they being pulled?? Is it illegal to see this trailer? LOL

  7. zzzzzzzzz……

  8. i just want it to be waay more violent then the previous films and KILL SYDNEY OFF

  9. wat u guys talking about, the scream series is one of the best series out there the movie looks awsome and this will be emma roberts break out roll i jus know it, hope sydney lives and this movie is goin to bloodier, sexier, scarier, and enjoyable just like the other 3. atleast there not remaking this movie lol

  10. Looks like the video was pulled by Weinstein Company? That’s what I’m getting.

  11. i hope that sidney DOESNT get injured. kevin would never do that in the first of the new trilogy! i think that she would probaly die in at least SCREAM 6 if the ever make it. and if i was sidney, i would want some defensive training since scream 3.

  12. Sorry, gang – apparently ComingSoon did NOT have an official version of the trailer as we first thought.

    When it’s officially released we’ll put it here.


    • Okey dokey :)

        • A-Bomb

          If he knew about this site hell would rise.

          • 1. he doesnt
            2. if he did he cant get in (on HPF anyway THIS site would undoubtably be screwed though)

    • saw it on the Scream awards anyway Vic no worries :)

  13. Aaaaand the trailer is BACK.

    OFFICIAL version this time so it’s here to stay. :)


    • lol thanks!

  14. Awesome Trailer. Even more psyched to see it now. lol “Virgins can die now”

  15. I bet Gale Weathers bites it in this sequel. And the killer is probably a vet/survivor who has been driven psycho due to witnessing all of the killings from the first 3 movies. It’s gonna shock the crap out of everyone, nonetheless, I’m almost sure of that. Can’t wait to go see this one!!!!
