It seems like
Christmas Halloween comes earlier and earlier every year. We're still neck-deep in the summer blockbuster season, but Paramount Pictures wants you to start thinking about the fall fright season, releasing two new trailers for Paranormal Activity 4, the latest installment in the wildly popular found-footage franchise that might just be the last installment if the tagline "All the activity has led to this..." is any indication.
Paranormal Activity 3 directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman return to helm the fourth chapter, which has fast-forwarded in time to 2011, five years after the events in Paranormal Activity 2 (PA3 was a prequel that took place in 1988). The "activity" that led Katie (Katie Featherston) to kill her boyfriend (Micah Sloat), her sister (Sprague Grayden), and her brother-in-law (Brian Boland), and kidnap her sister's infant son, Hunter, has now appeared to have taken possession (whether literally or figuratively, we can't say) of the young boy, who menaces a young girl living across the street. Joost and Schulman have updated the movie to include footage from the girl's web-chat with her boyfriend, but the same sort of frights that fans have come to expect from the series appear to be intact. watch the trailers >> Posted 08.02.12 by BrentJS
So far, Paramount Pictures has done everything for Paranormal Activity 4, including setting a release date and hiring back Paranormal Activity 3 directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman to helm the fourth installment. In fact, the only thing that Paramount has not done for Paranormal 4 is figure out who was going to write it. Now, that's changed too. more about Paranormal Activity 4 >> Posted 03.15.12 by Ryan
After revealing that Paramount Pictures was merely "developing ideas" for a potential Paranormal Activity 4, progress on the sequel has been quickly with almost daily updates. Earlier this week, it was reported that Paranormal Activity 4 would open later this year, while yesterday, Paramount decided to schedule the sequel for an October 19th release date, despite not having any writers or directors attached. Now, that's changed as well. more about Paranormal Activity 4 >> Posted 01.05.12 by Ryan
Paramount is already getting the promotion going for Paranormal Activity 3 by handing out flyers for a fake business called Darren's Timeless Memories at the San Diego Comic-Con. The offical website of the company is a viral site that ultimately leads to the teaser trailer for the movie. The trailer shows that the third installment will be a prequel which explores the childhood of Katie (played by Katie Featherston in the previous movies) and her sister Kristi (played by Sprague Hayden in Paranormal 2). watch the trailer >> Posted 07.22.11 by Ryan
With Insidious currently playing in theaters and quietly becoming a huge box office success ($50.3 million on a $1.5 million budget), director James Wan has already lined up his next project.
According to Variety, Wan will direct the supernatural thriller Spectre as his next project. While it should come as no surprise that the director of the original Saw would stay within the horror genre for his next movie, the report surprisingly claims that Nicole Kidman is in talks to star in the movie (Her involvement is unconfirmed at present.)
Further details on Spectre are unknown, including whether Wan will reunite with his Saw and Insidious screenwriter Leigh Whannell, though it is likely since Wan and Whanell have collaborated in some way on every project the two have been associated with since the original Saw.
