Paranormal Activity 4: News, Discussion, etc
 
Our first trailer will be coming tomorrow. This is a tease of it.

Pretty sure that is Katie walking outside of the house, wheeling Hunter out after she's stolen him.

Ah cool. Apart from "they're making it and its out at the usual time of year" I haven't heard anything about PA4, can't wait for the proper trailer/teaser

So, the fourth one is goin' to be a sequel to the first prequel?

I would have thought it would be a sequel to the prequel of the prequel.


ie. in timeline order they currently go 3, 2, 1, end of 2

There seems to be room in between 3 and 2 for what happened next to young Katie and Kristi (the house fire etc)

I still haven't gotten around to seein' the third one...maybe before the fourth comes out.

This would appear to be the sequel to the first one. The previous two kind of were set up to evolve and build the mythology further. Kind of an unique way of developing a franchise. This would seem to be the pay off fans have been waiting for.

We haven't heard much from the production because frankly...there hasn't been much news at all. Dianna Agorn (Glee) was cast about a month or so ago, I think other than that we've not had much casting information or real news at all. This was pretty much the norm for last year's "Paranormal Activity 3". They waited until the summer time to start their marketing for the movie. They've released a banner on their facebook page which is just the movie title you see in the teaser preview.

Does it matter whats in the trailer anyway? Last time most of the trailer didn't make it to the final version of the film.

I think it matters to some what's in the trailer yes. I don't know that it will matter much to hardcore PA fans like myself. I dunno. It gives us a sense of at least who will be in the film, that's pretty much what is important to me. I can't speak for the rest of the fandom.

Well it's here--

Like Mike Farley said, I'll take it with a pinch of salt anyway as most of the stuff in the PA3 trailer wasn't in the final movie. Which actually I think is maybe a good thing, you don't want all the jumps ruined for a horror/scary movie by the trailer.

Looks ok.
But, just like with the previous 3, I'll wait for the blu-ray. This is the kind of movie you watch with a couple of people in a dark quiet house, not in a theater.

Re: Paranormal Activity 4: News, Discussion, etc
 
Interesting indeed. Looks like Dianna Agorn's character family lives in a house with automated systems. Interesting to note that once again it would seem we're dealing with a couple again. It didn't excite me, but I'm a sucker for this franchise so I'll be seeing it. I just love the mythology that they've built up.

I like how they are utilizing web cams via a Skype type video chat.
How it is at last a sequel to the first two films.

I'm ready. I will say that if your theater audience is into it like I've been lucky than a full theater, engaged in the film is a great experience to watch one of these with.

I've worked my way through the first three... I'll go ahead and check this one out just to see if the story gets some sort of conclusion.

As long as they are cheap to produce & turn a hefty profit, there won't be a conclusion. Look at how many Saw movies came out before those finally stopped...

Most fans have thought that if they want to continue the franchise they could do so with an entirely new family and ghost, but after concluding the opening arc and current mythology. It really makes no sense for them to keep dragging it on after this movie. If this turns out to be yet another set up film rather than a pay off film, I'm out come 5 next year. I personally believe this is a conclusion to the first movie.
