Awful Battle… A 5tup1d Tr3nd R3tr05p3ct1v3

We all Scream 4 I Scre4m!

Scream 4 won’t be out until next year, but that hasn’t stopped them from advertising it already.  As you can see, the marketers have opted for 2 Fast 2 Furious-style campaign (image in gallery after the jump) that Tron Legacy and The Final Destination abandoned prior to looking, well, fucking idiotic (original images also below).

So if this “stupid trend” finds new life again, I may scream.  But imagine the confusion if this method of advertising held true for other previous movies.  We would have had:

  • Seven Part 7

  • Thirteen Ghosts Part 13

  • Cradle to the Grave 2

  • The Nines Part 9

  • Three Part 3

  • Menace to Society II

  • Lucky Number Slevin 7

  • Simone Part 10

  • Layer Cake Part 43

  • Leonard Part 6
