Locally shot 'Scream 4' disappoints at box office
More than 10 years have passed between "Scream 3" and "Scream 4," the locally shot, newly released chapter in the popular horror franchise. With key talent returning both in front of the cameras (Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette) as well as behind (director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson), expectations were high for the movie's box-office hopes.
Its box-office performance over the opening weekend is being called disappointing. The animated kids movie "Rio" was in first place with the biggest opening weekend so far this year, selling $40 million in tickets. "Scream 4" was in second place with $19 million.
