The Wilhelm Scream is Back

The Wilhelm Scream, named after Private Wilhelm, a character in the 1953 Western film The Charge at Feather River, has appeared in over 140 Hollywood films, including Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Reservoir Dogs, and others. (See full list here.) Now the scream is coming back. According to the LA Times, the scream will again echo through cinemas with the May 7 release of Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2. Above, you can watch a montage of The Wilhelm Scream. Naturally, the ur-scream comes first. Thanks Veronica for the tip on this one!
