Were there spoilers in the SCREAM trailer?

After Paramount Pictures dropped the trailer for Scream, many fans, including myself, were concerned about the protentional spoilers in the 2 minute video. I even made a "non-spoilery teaser" for the film.

Bloody-Disgusting talked to filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett:

Bettinelli-Olpin says, "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. 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.”

After watching the trailer, many fans have voiced their theories on Twitter. The marketing team for Scream even created a Facebook group called "Woodsboro Horror Film Club."

Gillett adds, "Part of what we love about the Scream movies, and what we love about the Scream fandom is just how deep people watch these movies. We think some of the fun of this experience is this forensic watching of things and trying to figure out who the killer is. It’s all a part of what’s so unique and so special about this franchise to us. As deep, deep fans of the original four, we took pains to populate the world of this movie, and certainly the materials with as many fun nods and Easter eggs and misdirects as possible.”


Do you avoid trailers/marketing to not be spoiled before watching a movie?

I’ll watch ten seconds of a trailer to see if it’s got potential and turn it off because I don’t wanna get spoiled. I remember a time when trailers were exciting (at least to me lol), they had the best scenes from the movie and that was it, you got the gist of the plot without knowing the full story. Now when I watch a trailer from beginning to end I feel like I’ve already seen the movie, and I’m someone who dgaf about spoilers but damn leave a little to the imagination. Who the hell likes these full story trailers anyway? Horror movie trailers are the worst offenders

i always spoil shit for myself when it comes to tv/movies. i don't know why.
also i'm over trailers showing us the entire movie in 3 minutes.
I think that the trailer was set up to be misleading. I mean, that whole “first kill” is most likely a scene from the Stab film within a film.
that's what i was thinking too, about it being misleading. i mentioned this above but i think that it's suspicious that [Spoiler (click to open)]dewey told sidney during their phone call that there were "attacks" and not murders. i def think that there's scenes placed in there not only to mislead but ones that might not be in the final film altogether, lol.

I want Stu and Billy to be in this in flashbacks!

Marvel/Disney has damn near perfected de-aging, and they aren't THAT haggard and wrinkly yet.

It would be cool to see them in the ghostface costumes (i dont think we ever actually see either of them with the costume), so seeing them bicker or plan things would be neat.
