Paramount Pictures has just announced that the new Scream movie will hold a special early release in selected cinemas in the Philippines on February 1, 2022. This means Pinoy horror fans can get to see the movie early ahead of its wide release on February 2.
On top of the early screening, Paramount Pictures has also announced that Scream has been rated R-16 Without Cuts by the Movie & Television Review & Classification Board (MTRCB). This is great news for Scream fans as the movie’s cinema release in the Philippines won’t be compromised.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Scream is the fifth movie in the iconic slasher film series of the same name.
Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett of the filmmaking group Radio Silence (Ready or Not, V/H/S), the new Scream movie’s premise is described as:
“Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past. Neve Campbell (“Sidney Prescott”), Courteney Cox (“Gale Weathers”) and David Arquette (“Dewey Riley”) return to their iconic roles in “Scream” alongside Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar.”
