The hype for Scream 2022’s trailer builds as the film receives its own emoji on Twitter resembling the iconic masked killer known as Ghostface.
Scream (2022) gets its own Ghostface emoji on Twitter ahead of the trailer’s release. The Scream franchise began back in 1996 with the seminal satirical slasher film, Scream, written by Kevin Williamson and directed by horror legend Wes Craven. The film follows Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, a teenager in the fictional town of Woodsboro, California, who becomes the target of a mysterious serial killer in a Halloween costume known as Ghostface. David Arquette and Courteney Cox also star.
While many believed the series was over after 2011’s Scream 4, the popular slasher franchise is returning with a fifth installment set for release in January 2022. Simply titled Scream, the film will see the return of Ghostface, along with original stars Campbell, Cox, and Arquette. Melissa Barrera (In the Heights), Dylan Minnette (13 Reasons Why), and Jack Quaid (The Boys) join the cast as new characters. The upcoming relaunch/sequel will be the first in the series not helmed by Wes Craven, who passed away in 2015. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett take over as directors.
