SCREAM 2 had an insanely impressive cast list.
Twenty-five years ago today, SCREAM 2 was released in theaters. The 1997 sequel featured returning cast of Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox, and Jamie Kennedy. The new additions featured Sarah Michelle Gellar, Laurie Metcalf, Jerry O’Connell, Elise Neal, Timothy Olyphant, Jada Pinkett, and Liev Schreiber. Directed by Wes Craven, SCREAM 2 grossed over $100 million domestically at the box office after releasing less than a year after the original. SCREAM 6 is set to come out next year after the fifth movie did so well.
Sydney (Campbell) and tabloid reporter Gale Weathers (Cox) survived the events of the first “Scream,” but their nightmare isn’t over. When two college students are murdered at a sneak preview of “Stab,” a movie based on the events from the first film, it’s clear a copycat killer is on the loose. Sydney and Gail, as well as fellow survivors Deputy Dewey (Arquette) and Randy (Kennedy), have to find out who is behind this new murder spree before they all end up dead.
