About this deal

For more about Scream 2 4K and the Scream 2 4K Blu-ray release, see Scream 2 4K Blu-ray Review published by Martin Liebman on October 1, 2022 where this Blu-ray release scored 4.

These weren’t just rules, these were recognisable facts in all but the hardiest of cases (Jim Cameron notwithstanding). When a new killer makes their presence known, suddenly the town is plunged back into its familiar yet unbelievable despair. But the heart of the franchise belongs to Courtney Cox and David Arquette, wonderfully reprising their roles and their sizzling chemistry, easy humour and their brilliantly deployed and hugely effective chalk and cheese rom-com tropes.For the week that ended on April 9th, Paramount Home Media Distribution's Scream (2022) topped the Blu-ray-only chart, while Universal Pictures Home Entertainment's Sing 2 slipped to second place in its second week, despite staying on top of the overall packaged .
