    I was against the Paranormal Activity films too, but once I saw them one night when I rented the movies, I thought they were pretty good and I like them a lot. I just only wish it won't become another never ending franchise. @thedude1

      @ghostman I think if it opens with just about 20 million dollars and and fails to make 50 million domestically any chance of a sequel is dead at least for a for year which is all I really want. I am so sick of see these movies advertised all over the place.

        @moviegeek Thanks for clearing that up :) their's so many damn movies coming out the next two wks it's hard to keep track. Plus, I kept thinking PA3 was coming out the same week thinking October 28th, since I'm so use to a Saw movie coming out that same weekend :/

          @ghostman the movies open a week apart actually.

            Well @thedude1 unless some bizarre box office curse is set upon PA3 in order for it to bomb, it has to earn less than it's budget of 3 million dollars. That's going to be surprisingly low for a movie who's second movie opened at number one with 40mil. I'm sure it'll earn big bucks, it already has an 83% on the RT meter. But I'm not sure where the hell the series could go after this. Hopefully, this will wrap everything up and be the last.

              @ghostman I am just hoping it will bomb. I know it really can't with the low budgets the movies have but a lower box office than normal would hopefully end this awful series.

              • ghostman • 4 years ago

                @thedude1 I highly doubt PA3 will bomb. The last two opened at number 1 and have grossed over 150million domestically each.

                @moviegeek PA3, and Puss in Boots both open next weekend, it might be a close one...

                    Nice to see that Footloose is doing pretty decent.

                        @dan1@thedude1 I could at least see them taking a break for a year or two. Obviously you two think otherwise ;) :P

                          @moviegeek Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha..... End the PA series after the 3rd one? Stop fooling yourself, man. All they have to do is apply the same minimalist concept to another couple or person, and keep it going.

                            @moviegeek It would make sense to end it with a trilogy but we are talking about Paramount here. The same company that made 8 Friday the 13th movies in 9 years back in the 80s.

                              @thedude1 Well $30 won't be a tank :P Aren't they ending the PA movies after the 3rd one anyways? I mean, they've gone as far back into the movies' histories as they can now.

                                @moviegeek God I hope you are right. I hope PA3 tanks as much as possible and they end that terrible series.

                                  Glad Footloose tank and its second and third days and didn't win the weekend. The Thing was not as good as the John Carpenter movie but it was enjoyable. 3.5/5 for sure.

                                    Yikes. The Big Year did a bellyflop.

                                    I'm predicting PA3 won't be able to match the $40mil of last years PA2, but maybe in the lower $30s.

                                      @corey: I don't know why, but it takes a long time to upload videos on youtube on my end. Granted a helluva lot faster than it was on my PC (like 2hrs for the TDK trailer), it's still slow for watching films.

                                        @slysnide Stream it on Youtube :P That's what I'm doing lol

                                        Good to know. I think the original will help refresh a lot. Watching the prequel I wasn't too into the story, just the kills and loud noises.

                                        Still gonna attempt at reviewing it by tomorrow though, of course!

                                          @corey: Nah, you've pretty much seen all of it. My buddy borrowed the original two months or so ago, but hasn't been back since Labor Day from his CSU when he usually be back every other weekend, so I may not see it again till Thanksgiving or Xmas, which sucks cuz I'm really in the mood to watch it right now.
