Can we assume that Robert Downey Jr. has become a fan of Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce? Months before Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opens, Pearce has been hired to write the provisional  Sherlock Holmes 3 for Warner Bros. (Just as the studio hired A Game of Shadows screenwriters Kieran and Michele Mulroney to get to work on the script before Sherlock Holmes opened.) And since Pearce is writing the third Iron Man film, something Downey is likely quite involved in given his admitted disappointment with the second movie, it isn’t difficult to assume that Downey had a hand in suggesting him to pen Sherlock 3. No plot has been revealed for the potential third film at this time. [Deadline]

After the break, one Paramount exec says Paranormal Activity 4 is almost a certainty, and Frank Miller talks Sin City 2. Read More »

NOTE: This review was originally published on September 29th 2011 from a secret screening that took place at Fantastic Fest, and is being republished for the wide release.

The second half of Paranormal Activity 3 is the most consistently intense and frightening segment so far in the popular found footage series. Directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (the guys behind Catfish) take their sweet time getting to it but once the scares begin, they don’t let up. That’s the good news. The bad news is for a third film in a series, it adds almost nothing to the overall Paranormal Activity mythology. (Not to mention well over half the footage in the new trailer is NOT in the movie.) Fans might also be disappointed that Katie Featherstone, the star of the first two films, only makes a brief cameo to give a bit of context to the rest of the film which is primarily about her character and her sister as little girls. And they did not have a pleasant childhood.

The world premiere of Paranormal Activity 3 was the second Secret Screening at Fantastic Fest 2011 and you can read more about it after the jump. Read More »

Paramount Pictures has released a new movie trailer for Paranormal Activity 3 from Catfish directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. We’ve heard unconfirmed rumors that the film might premiere as a secret screening at Fantastic Fest in Austin tonight, and if that is true that shows the studio has confidence in the film (the last movie wasn’t screened for most press).Paramount has also announced a “Tweet To See It First” campaign which will allow twitter users to determine which 20 cities will get to see Paranormal three days before the film’s global release. The third film in the series is a prequel which takes us back to 1988, where we get to “Discover How The Activity Began.” The trailers for past films have been more secretive, where this new spot seems to reveal quite a few scares (so you might want to avoid it if you want to experience the film minus spoilers). Watch the trailer embedded after the jump, please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Watch Three ‘Paranormal Activity 3′ Clips

Paramount is having fun with the marketing of Paranormal Activity 3. The studio’s PR department is mailing VHS tapes and VCRs to some horror site editors; each tape contains a clip from the film and the suggestion that the screen should be filmed while the tape plays.

Three clips for the October release have been sent out so far, and you can see them below. Read More »

We don’t know much about Paranormal Activity 3, but how much do we really need to know? This new poster for the film pretty much gives you everything on a platter: it’s another sequel to the two ‘found footage’ films you either like or have dismissed, and this threequel features kids in danger. What horror fan doesn’t enjoy seeing terrified kids? Click through for the full poster. Read More »

‘Paranormal Activity 3′ Teaser Trailer

When the first Paranormal Activity was released in 2009, no one could have imagined what a second film, let alone a third film, would hold. It seemed like such a focused scary story. But embedded in Oren Peli’s taught, terrifying film was the back story of a girl named Katie who had been terrorized for years by an unspeakable evil. That evil was given a bit more context in Paranormal Activity 2 which, cleverly, set itself up as both a prequel and sequel to the first film. Now, with Paranormal Activity 3, it seems like the story is going back to its origin: to when Katie and her sister Kristi were kids. And there are few things scarier than little kids being terrorized. Check out the first teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »
