with this type of film and the sequels, i think it will do well the first weekend. but hollywood will stick it's foot up it's butt and give us out some pg-13 crap with mild gore and what they think they want us to see. what they think, we think is cool... who is the programmed monkeys... us or them... craven's doesn't have the creative freedom he once had with so many modern horror directors, he is getting lost in the shuffle.i think they all will die, or at least their careers... if not dead already.
It's too long since the last film, which effectivly killed the franchise anyway. I would take somthing special to reboot the series and I just can't see it happening. Craven is probebly best channeling his energy into creating somthing new, than reworking an established series.
Whether it's going to suck or rock people are going to see it anyway... Craven's a kind of a living legend now and has accomplished something as weird as that, like Freddy 7 or so, to have you wanting to see something that you already know you are not going to like.
I'll watch it whether it sucks or not. Personally, I'm cautiously optimistic. The trailer didn't suck and it's been long enough since Scream III to make revisiting the franchise a bit worthwhile. Plus I heart Kristen Bell.
it'll make a bunch of money opening weekend, whether or not it's good. from the trailer alone, though, it looks pretty rote and bad. sadly, it seems a money-making effort aimed at revisiting franchises in perhaps the same way that "forgotten" bands tour on the strength of performing a hit album. wes craven is an octogenarian indie rocker. it'll probably suck.
