What do the new James Bond film and an upcoming low-budget supernatural thriller have in common? Not much, except that both have new trailers coming this week, and both have just released trailers for those new trailers. There isn’t too much to say about either one of these clips, other than that fans of each series will find something to enjoy here. We’ll save further commentary for the full trailer releases in the next couple days. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Once Paranormal Activity 3 had a gangbuster opening this past October, a fourth film was inevitable. Soon after the release, directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman reportedly agreed to make Paranormal Activity 4 and an October 19, 2012 release date was set. That’s almost exactly seven months to the day from right now.
Which means the film is going to be plenty rushed as Paramount has just signed up Zack Estrin to write the script. Estrin is a producer on the current ABC show The River, which is produced by Paranormal Activity creator and current executive producer Oren Peli. He’s also written on Prison Break, No Ordinary Family but Paranormal Activity 4 marks his feature film debut. Read More »
When Paramount announced they’d hired Catfish directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman to direct Paranormal Activity 3, the world of film collectively rolled their eyes. Then the film came out and the duo gouged those eyes out. Joost and Schulman knocked the film out of the park (read my review here), turned a major profit and left a ton of places for the fourth film to go. Now they’ll be the ones to take it there.
After the recent news that Paranormal Activity 4 will be released on October 19, it has now been revealed Joost and Schulman will return as directors, this time with several more months to prepare. Where will the movie go? We speculate and more after the jump. Read More »
Briefly: There are still no announcements about who will write and direct the fourth episode in Paramount’s massively successful Paranormal Activity franchise, but now we know how much time they have to work. We told you earlier this week that Paramount would definitely be making the film, and suspected that it would get an October release. Now Paramount has announced that Paranormal Activity 4 will hit on October 19.
That’s right in the same window that the studio has been using in the past couple years for Paranormal sequels. The third film opened on Oct 21, 2011, and took in over $50m that weekend. The fourth entry in the series will probably cost a third of that, at most.
Since no creative team has been announced we still don’t have any story to report, much less any cast. But it will be a Paranormal Activity film, and that’s probably all you need to know.
Here’s something that won’t be any surprise at all: Paramount is going to continue the mega-successful Paranormal Activity series. ‘Mega-success’ is relatively easy to achieve with these films, given that even the most expensive one came in well under the average small drama budget, and went on to earn more than $200m across the world.
We don’t have any details on the creative team yet (the guys behind Catfish, Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, made the third) but with the studio likely hoping to have a fourth film ready for an October release, we’ll probably get that info soon. Read More »
