Director: Wes Craven

Release Date: April 15
Why we’re excited: Much like The Matrix trilogy, the Scream brand started off awesome but slowly descended into unaware self-mockery. Thus, at first glance, the idea of reviving the tongue-in-cheek slasher series is quite suspect: Wes Craven hasn’t made a strong horror flick since, well, the first Scream in 1996, and age hasn’t been too friendly to franchise player Neve Campbell’s sex appeal. But casting hotties Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin and Community’s Alison Brie as potential victims is a great way to catch our attention. As long as there’s no Jamie Kennedy cameo, we’ll remain cautiously optimistic.
