'Paranormal Activity 3' Gets 2011 Release Date!
'Paranormal Activity 3' Gets 2011 Release Date!
Wow. already greenlit & dated!


Bloody Disgusting has received exclusive confirmation from producer Oren Peli (also director of the first film) that Paramount Pictures has locked down an October 21, 2011 release date for Paranormal Activity 3. No other details are available at this time.
Well with a sequel it is officially a franchise.


Hell, and why wouldn't they? The first film was made for only $15,000 while the sequel, although a studio film, was made for $3 million. It's a horror franchise dream-come-true for Paramount,

Yes I called this back in in the review was inevitable after the box office numbers came in for their opening weekend. I'm hoping that we get a definitive conclusion at least for the Katie storyline. Then Peli can do whatever he wants to after that. I think Ali is going to recruit people to aid her in getting her step-brother back and stopping Demon Katie. I'm surprised we haven't had any DVD news yet for PA2. The first one came out on Dec 28 last year (my birthday) I was hoping for a similar rushed release this year.

While I'd like to know what happens to Katie I don't know it's necessary. The demon was using Katie to get to Hunter after all.
How would one pursue finding out what happens to evil Katie post PA2? How does one continue the voyeur aspect of the series doing that?

I see two options.
1-The demon comes after 14/15yr old Ally for whatever reason, cause he/it killed everyone else and just wants to have a clean slate. Ally, traumatized by coming home to mom&day murdered is in a psych ward. Complete of course with cameras. This could be where possessed Katie comes into play.

2-The story for PA3 features an all new cast encountering new/different paranormal activity.

Actually the demon was using Kristi to get to Hunter, Dan screwed up it's plans when he used the ritual to siphon it on to Katie. I like option number one Craig...number two I see happening in the inevitable "Paranormal Activity 4"

This is the second full trailer...and I think it's awesome as hell! the "Catfish" directors were perfect choice to direct this movie. I've changed my tune considerably since it was first announced.

I've seen the one trailer from a few weeks ago. Going to steer clear of the above trailer just to keep the suspense for the movie.

I'm tempted though.

The new trailer is laughably bad. There aren't enough crackers in the world for all that cheese.

I kind of wish they shot with a real VHS camcorder to give that authentic look from the late 80s. Totally looks like it was shot on HDV or any of the other newer HD codecs out there. I mean they're shooting in 24p for Pete's sakes.

I'll definitely be seeing it, buy I'm worried that new trailer gave away way too many of the scares and jumps

Re: 'Paranormal Activity 3' Gets 2011 Release Date!
Was worried that may be the case. Extra glad I didn't watch that 2nd trailer now.

^ So you're not going to view it based on one negative response? That seems lame. It's cheesy in places and overthetop in one but nothing that we haven't come to expect from the franchise. The only of the two that genuinely scared me was the first one. The second one bored me until the ending. I was outright against this film when it was first announced, I didn't like the concept of a prequel but then started to change my mind when the "Catfish" directors were announced. I'm really looking forward to learning more of the mythology that they've developed. I kind of figure that the entities name is going to be revealed as Dianne going back to a plot point revealed in the first movie. Katie Feathersone's real middle name is Dianne and I've always suspected that in the context of the film that she was their grandmother.

No, as I stated yesterday and 3 posts above Ethros comment, I had no intention of watching based on my own decision to try and preserve the moments for the film.
No different than when I reach a point in the weeks before something like XM:FC, Thor or Captain America open and a stop watching TV spots. Sometimes by TV spot #8 or 9 you can start to see the zing moments and there is little left for the film. Since PA3 isn't likely to have that many zing moments then a whole 2nd trailer, this close to release is something I'll avoid. Just choice, Ethros only confirmed that there are some more things revealed, things I want to save for the film itself, that's all I'm saying.

^ Ah I apologize. You're talking about being spoiled. My mistake.

All good. :techman:
Glad to clear up any confusion.

This is the first review I've seen so far...but then again I've not been hunting around. Nice to see a positive one.
