We've been teased with a few teaser trailers throughout the week leading to the released of this full trailer for Paranormal Activity 4. DirectorsHenry Joost and Ariel Schulman took the story in a direction I didn't see coming, but it makes sense that they would move the story forward instead of backwards at this point. I like that the kid that was kidnapped comes back as an evil ass Damien type character.
Paramount Pictures has also announced that Facebook fans of the film can determine which 25 cities around the world will get early screenings of the movie. The full details for that are below the trailer.
I've enjoyed watching this franchise, and I liked the movies more than I thought I would. I hope this one is just as entertaining. Watch the trailer, and let us know if you think it's going to make for a good addition to the franchise!
Fans of "PARANORMAL ACTIVITY" are being empowered to bring the movie to their city first. Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom, Inc., will debut the fourth installment in the popular horror franchise exclusively in 25 cities around the world by encouraging fans to vote to see it first with a new "Want It" application on Facebook.
Facebook's 955 million global fans can vote for an advance screening in their city by clicking on the "Want It" button on the film's fan page at www.Facebook.com/ParanormalActivity.
"Want It" is a dynamic application utilizing Facebook's open graph technology that gives fans the opportunity to vote to bring the franchise to their city and leverage their social networks to ensure they are one of the top 25 winning locations. The application recognizes a fan's geo-location according to their Facebook profile and automatically registers a vote to bring the film to their city first. Votes will be shared on a fan's page and automatically posted to the Facebook newsfeed to rally their peers to bring the film to their city first too.
The application feeds individual votes into a dynamic leader board that shows the ranking of every city in real time. Audiences can track the top cities as well as the ranking of their own city as well as push out reminders encouraging friends to vote. "Want It" brings an unprecedented level of interactivity for fans in determining screenings of the movie.
"There's a very special connection between 'PARANORMAL ACTIVITY' and Facebook," said Matt Jacobson, head of market development at Facebook. "Four years after the initial success of the franchise and the establishment of a passionate fan community, we're excited to see continued iteration on a franchise that was born on Facebook. Paramount is using both the Facebook platform and media to drive awareness of the film, three months out, and we will continue to drive awareness and intent at scale as we approach opening weekend in October."
"The success of 'PARANORMAL ACTIVITY' began with the fans who have championed the movie franchise from the very beginning through social media," said Amy Powell, Executive Vice President of Interactive Marketing. "Now we're creating an even more dynamic experience among the film's community of fans and for the first time, we're giving them an opportunity to go head-to-head on Facebook with fans around the world to determine the 25 cities who get to see 'PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4' before it opens."
