Prepare yourselves for not just one more Paranormal Activity movie — but two!
This past weekend saw Paranormal Activity 4 debut, and while it didn’t do as good as its predecessors, the fourth spooky found-footage film in the franchise still warranted enough for a Latino spinoff film as well as Paranormal Activity 5.
Reportedly, there is some kind of teaser featured in Paranormal Activity 4 that leads to the Latino spinoff film which is slated for Spring 2013. The Latino film will not feature any of the regular cast members from the previous Paranormal Activity films, but will feature the same demon.
Regarding Paranormal Activity 5, the fifth movie has been greenlit by Paramount for an October 2013 Halloween release with more details to come.
Paranormal Activity 4 grossed $30 million domestically this past weekend, a vast difference compared to its $52.6 million opening for Paranormal Activity 3 and $40.7 million for Paranormal Activity 2.
It could be that the story wasn’t up to par as it seemed more teenage-oriented or that movie goers are getting tired of the films; however, with a budget of only around $5 million, $30 million still isn’t a bad number.
In addition, international audiences love the Paranormal movies, so expect this to be around for the long haul by the sounds of things.
