It’s been a few weeks since there’s been a new installment in Inside Pulse’s Movie Poster of the Week column. A new edition will premiere this weekend but, to tide you over until then, here’s a peak at a cool new movie poster from artist extraordinaire Olly Moss — this time for the upcoming horror sequel Scream 4 (watch the trailer here).
Moss, who has been responsible for some great posters for the Alamo Drafthouse’s Mondo Tees series of collectible prints, has boiled the upcoming horror sequel down to a single image — a knife. While revisiting Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson’s last collaboration Cursed recently had gotten me a little nervous about the upcoming sequel to the duo’s ’90s Scream trilogy, this poster has gone a long way towards reminding me of the possibility that a Scream 4 could still be relevant. The piece was commissioned as part of Empire magazine’s April coverage of Scream 4.
In other Scream 4 news, scream-trilogy.net has reported that Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack to Scream 4 on April 12. I have fond memories of the original trilogy’s soundtracks — each film went into an entirely different direction for its accompanying soundtrack album. The first Scream soundtrack featured great moody ’90s alternative tunes and cover songs — mostly from bands that have since slipped into obscurity. The second movie concentrated on late ’90s college pop-rock like Dave Matthews Band and Everclear. By the time Scream 3 was released, nu-metal and rap-rock had taken center stage — paving the way for the band Creed to produce and program the soundtrack.
No word on what bands might be seen in the fourth film’s soundtrack. One easy guess, though, is Nick Cave to appear somewhere with a new version of his tune “Red Right Hand” — a song that has found new life in each of the three previous films.
