New posters have been released for the next Scream movie. The fifth film in the hugely successful horror series--simply titled Scream--hits theaters on January 14.

The posters show the three long-time stars of the franchise--Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers, and David Arquette as Dewey Riley. On each poster, the character is holding the series's iconic Ghostface mask. The tagline reads "It's always someone you know"--could one of them be the killer this time? Check the posters out in the thread below:

Scream is directed by Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, who previously helmed 2019's acclaimed horror-comedy Ready or Not. The movie also stars Jack Quaid (The Boys), Melissa Barrera (Vida, the upcoming In the Heights), and Jenna Ortega (Insidious: Chapter 2, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous). You can check out the full Scream trailer here, plus this more recent teaser.

The previous four movies were directed by Wes Craven, who died in 2015. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Campbell discussed how she felt about returning to the series without the legendary horror director. "I genuinely was in two minds," she said. "The idea of making these films without Wes seemed challenging to me. I loved the man very much. But Matt and Tyler wrote me a letter, speaking of their appreciation and great respect for Wes Craven, and speaking of the fact that the very reason that they are directors today was because of these movies and because of Wes, and that meant a great deal to me."
