New Release: Scream 4 Blu-ray and DVD

Scream 4 movie scene

Ghost returns to menace Courteney Cox in Scream 4.

Horror movie Scream 4 is scheduled to hit the street on Oct. 4 from The Weinstein Company and distributor Anchor Bay, as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack (priced at $39.99) and $29.98 a DVD ($29.98). The Blu-ray version will include a downloadable digital copy of the movie.

The movie reunites original Scream director Wes Craven (My Soul to Take) with Neve Campbell (TV’s The Philanthropist), Courteney Cox (TV’s Cougar Town) and David Arquette (It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie). New to the cast this time around are Hayden Panettiere (TV’s Heroes), Anna Paquin (TV’s True Blood), Kristen Bell (Couples Retreat), Emma Roberts (It’s Kind of a Funny Story) and Pretty Little Liars‘ Lucy Hale.

The R-rated film grossed significantly less at the domestic box office than previous entries of the franchise, pulling in a disappointing $36 million in its wide theatrical release this past April. Still, a fifth entry could be on the horizon…

In Scream 4, Campbell’s Sidney Prescott is on a promotional tour for her self-help book, and on a stop in her hometown, she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey (Arquette) and reporter Gale Weathers (Cox), who are now married … hmmm. Of course, Sidney’s appearance encourages Ghostface to return, putting everyone in danger — again.

The Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and DVD will include the following bonus features:

  • making-of featurette
  • alternate opening
  • extended ending
  • deleted and extended scenes
  • gag reel
