‘Scream 6’ Receives Longest Runtime of the Entire Franchise
Scream 6 is on its way back to theaters. A new and more relentless Ghostface is coming with it. The first trailer revealed a very different approach to Sceam and its killer. This includes a public slaying featuring Ghostface using a shotgun to dispatch his enemies. Now, nobody is safe at anytime, anywhere you are in New York, you can be attacked. Sounds like the real NY. The approach to Ghostface isn’t the only thing that has changed. This Scream also features the longest runtime of any other runtime in the franchise.
The latest Scream clocks in at 2 hours and 3 minutes long. It doesn’t beat the other runtimes by very long, but it still does manage to be the longes entry yet.
That really doesn’t come as surprise these days. It seems like every movie we see is aiming to get a longer and longer runtime. Everything from James Bond films to Batman films are hitting record lengths. I suppose that is a natural reaction to keep up with the storytelling that is allowed in the format of the TV series.
The film stars Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, Courteney Cox, Dermot Mulroney, Samara Weaving, Tony Revolori, Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda, Josh Segarra, and Henry Czerny.
The synopsis for Scream VI goes like this:
Four survivors of the original Ghostface killings attempt leave Woodsboro behind for a fresh start.
Scream VI arrives in theaters beginning March 10, 2023.
