'Scream 4' premieres with Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell

Scream 4 premieres with Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell

Monday evening saw a rare occasion in Hollywood -- plenty of "Scream" without a lot of fuss.

The long-awaited "Scream 4," part of Wes Craven's horror franchise, premiered at Grauman's Chinese theater with a bloody good party to follow at the Redbury Hotel.

David Arquette at the Scream 4 premiere Gracing the iron-clad screening at the movie house tiled with hand- and footprints of legendary stars, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette joined their boss Craven to greet an embarrassment of fans on Hollywood Boulevard.

"Scream" legacy Jamie Kennedy, a.k.a Randy Meeks, was among the first to hit the carpet, bemoaning his demise in the second film but showing support nonetheless. 

Arquette followed, looking fit and optimistic after his stint in rehab, along with costars Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin, Shenae Grimes and Lucy Hale, not to mention the new film's major scene-stealer Alison Brie.

Cox and Campbell rolled up hand in hand, walking the carpet together looking sweet -- no surprise as Campbell, promoting the film a few weeks ago, told the Ministry that she'd never been closer to Courteney than when filming the newest chapter.

At the Redbury afterward, Arquette couldn't be found but Cox held strong with a group of friends, chatting up Craven and producers. Her "Cougartown" costar Josh Hopkins turned up at the Axe Shower-sponsored fete, in casual glasses and a track jacket. Across the open-air terrace, Anna Paquin entertained some gal pals sans husband Stephen Moyer.

Campbell and new blood Emma Roberts shared a sweet and lengthy chat on an outdoor couch while another legacy, Matthew Lillard, laughed with fans.

Though Arquette was out of sight, Hayden Panettiere enjoyed conversation with Jeff Beacher, the actor's partner in the Hollywood Roosevelt's nightlife attraction Beacher's Madhouse, holding court with the emcee and a few of his pint-sized friends from the venue.

Also spotted among dozens of custom, crystallized bottles of Moet bearing the film's title: the hilarious Anthony Anderson, Adam Brody, Carla Gugino, Nia Vardalos and Marley Shelton.

Just what the world needs is another silly scary story...what, the real news isn't frigtening enough? And why keep the same old same boring actors and has-beens, aging and decripit faces intact, only pretending to be as agile as ever???? I'm burnt out on Courtney Cox, just as I am with so many reruns of Friends, that the only relief is NOT to watch TV anymore.

It seems as though nearly everyone in the film made an appearance at the screening of Wes Craven's newest installment in the Scream series. David Arquette may have been out of sight for most of the night, but his fashion sense never is! With Scream 4 now out it will be interesting to see how it does in the box office!
