'Scream' Trailer Spoilers Are Deceiving, Filmmakers Say: 'There's a Good Chance You're Wrong'

Thought the Scream trailer gave away too much plot? Not so fast.

As far as potential misdirects in the trailer, Matt said: “That is a very safe assumption. This was a hard trailer for [marketing] to put together, and I think one of the things we’re happy with is that anything that you might think is a spoiler in this, there’s a good chance you’re wrong,” he said.

“There are misdirects within the movie. There are misdirects within the trailer. For us, that’s just the fun of the whole thing to make this a big whodunnit. Spoilers suck, but the fun as fans is to talk about who might be the killer. Then to go through it forensically to try and find out and see if you can win the game, basically.”
