Back in June, producer Jason Blum confirmed that this fall's Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension will bring the lucrative Paranormal Activity franchise to an end. Today, Paramount Pictures has released a new motion poster for this upcoming horror sequel, which hits theaters October 23. With just over a month until this franchise finale hits theaters, we should get at least one more trailer between now and then.
Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension centers on a new family, the Fleeges, father Ryan (Chris J. Murray), mother Emily (Brit Shaw) and their young daughter Leila (Ivy George) - who move into a house and discover a video camera and a box of tapes in the garage. Every time they look through the lens of the camera, they see paranormal activity all around them, along with the reappearance of siblings Kristi and Katie. Katie Featherston will return as Katie, the only character to appear in each film, and this sequel will also present footage shown through the camera in 3D.
The beloved franchise started with director Oren Peli's low-budget 2009 thriller Paranormal Activity, which cost just $15,000 to make and took in $193 million worldwide. The blockbuster was followed by Paranormal Activity 2 (2010), Paranormal Activity 3 (2011), Paranormal Activity 4 (2012) and the spinoff Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014). Jason Blum revealed that Paranormal Activity 5 will answer questions that fans have been clamoring for, such as the family's backstory and what Toby looks like.
Gregory Plotkin makes his directorial debut with Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, but the filmmaker has a long history with the franchise. He served as the editor on Paranormal Activity 2, Paranormal Activity 3, Paranormal Activity 4 and Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, serving as co-producer on the last three films as well. He also co-produced Oren Peli's long-awaited directorial follow-up Area 51, which debuted earlier this year.
Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension opens in theaters during one of this year's most competitive weekends at the box office. This thriller will go up against The Weinstein Company's Burnt, Universal's Jem and the Holograms, Lionsgate's The Last Witch Hunter and Open Road Films' Rock the Kasbah. Do you think this final horror sequel can break the bank at the box office? Check out this unique motion poster and stay tuned for more from Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension.
