Paranormal Activity 7 Gets Underwater Director Will Eubank
Underwater helmer Will Eubank has just been set to direct Paranormal Activity 7 with franchise writer Christopher Landon returning to write the screenplay. Last year, it was announced that Blumhouse was reviving the found footage horror franchise with plans to release the next installment in 2022. At the time, producer Jason Blum also announced that Landon was coming on board to help develop the project, though there were no plans for him to write the script at that time.

"I am helping my friends and co-collaborators at Paramount set a new course for the franchise," Landon said at the time. "I Am Not writing the script nor am I directing the new movie. I am eager and excited to hand the reigns over to a fresh filmmaker who will undoubtedly reinvigorate this franchise that the amazing Oren Peli created so many years ago."

Now, word is that Landon has decided to write

New Paranormal Activity Gets New March 4th, 2022 Release Date

New Paranormal Activity Gets New March 4th, 2022 Release Date
Last summer it was announced that Paramount and Blumhouse are returning to the Paranormal Activity franchise with a seventh installment in the franchise, and you can now mark your calendars (and presumably get ready for more hellish nights of sleep), as the film has been given a new 2022 release date.

According to Bloody Disgusting (whose post was shared on the official Paranormal Activity Twitter account), the next Paranormal Activity movie is now slated for a March 4th, 2022 release, pushing it back nearly a year from its previous March 19th, 2021 release.

In the 2000s and 2010s, Paramount and Blumhouse teamed up for six Paranormal Activity movies that brought found footage scares to a whole new generation. The last of those six films was Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension in 2015.

No further details on the new film are known at this time, including who will direct it. We'll have to wait and

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Studio’s Deal With AMC “Can Tap Into Very Large Audience” Who Doesn’t Frequent Movie Theaters

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Studio’s Deal With AMC “Can Tap Into Very Large Audience” Who Doesn’t Frequent Movie Theaters
The hope for NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell in the studio’s new unprecedented 17-day theatrical window collapse-pvod deal with AMC Theatres is to make more money in the post theatrical windows which have waned in recent years.

“Movies are our lifeblood,” said the NBCUniversal pro-pvod exec, “Over the last couple of years, it’s become more increasingly difficult to generate the same returns over the first couple of windows. We believe the new model in the U.S. will restore some of those economics, probably not make more movies, but keep production levels the same as in the past.”

“Long-term we’ve always believed that there’s a growing segment of the population out there who doesn’t go to movie theaters. This structure with AMC allows us to take advantage of people who do go to the movie theaters, 17 days of exclusivity at minimum for theaters, but very soon

Cineworld Reacts To Universal-AMC Theatrical Window Crunching PVOD Deal: “We Do Not See Any Business Sense In This Model”
Exclusive: Those in town assuming that one of the other big exhibition circuits will fall in line with AMC and seek their own 17-day theatrical window-pvod deal with Universal will soon realize that it will be a cold day in hell.

Cineworld CEO Mooky Greidinger, who oversees the world’s second largest chain, exclusively tells Deadline that “We do not see any business sense in this model” when it comes to Universal and AMC’s agreement for a 17-day theatrical window for movies, with an option to go on PVOD thereafter.

“While we don’t know the full details and we are always analyzing any move in the industry, we will analyze it. People need to be aware that the first big movie from Universal is coming only in six months so there is no pressure here,” said Greidinger. “But we clearly see this as a wrong move at the wrong time.

Universal & AMC Theatres Make Peace, Will Crunch Theatrical Window To 17 Days With Option For PVOD After

Universal & AMC Theatres Make Peace, Will Crunch Theatrical Window To 17 Days With Option For PVOD After
After AMC CEO Adam Aron publicly threatened that he would never play Universal movies as along as the studio had a plan for simultaneous theatrical-pvod releases like Trolls World Tour, the world’s No. 1 exhibitor and the Hollywood studio have broken bread with the following multi-year agreement:

Universal and Focus Features releases will play at AMC theaters for a 17-day exclusive theatrical window. After that time Universal has the option to make such titles available on PVOD platforms, including AMC Theaters on Demand. In the coming weeks, the two companies will begin talks surrounding international distribution agreements in the countries in Europe and the Middle East served by AMC. One of Universal’s big pics this year abroad is MGM’s Bond movie No Time to Die being released in November. From what I hear, if a movie is performing like gangbusters at the box office, i.e. like a Get Out,

Jason Blum Wants To Bring Paranormal Activity Star Back For New Movie

Jason Blum Wants To Bring Paranormal Activity Star Back For New Movie
Paranormal Activity is a tiny movie that had a huge impact on the entertainment industry. Not only did it become one of the most profitable films in Hollywood history after making almost $200 million on a $350,000 budget and help popularize the found footage genre, but it was a major early success for Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions. They’ve since gone on to shape the world of modern horror cinema, the highlight of all this being the incredible Get Out.

Despite that success, though, the franchise has been dormant since 2015’s Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. Last year, however, we began to hear that a new entry in the series was being developed and now, Blum has been opening up about it a bit and said he’d love to bring back series star Katie Featherston for the pic.

“We’re gonna do the movie. We’re developing the movie, but

AMC, Cineworld & Universal ‘Trolls’ Windows War: Why This Storm Is Already Passing

AMC, Cineworld & Universal ‘Trolls’ Windows War: Why This Storm Is Already Passing
Not to deflate the rousing round robin of mudslinging between AMC, Cineworld and Universal, but this whole Omg melee between exhibition and studios over Pvod, theatrical-window crunching and hurt feelings is poised to calm down soon.

Some industry insiders believe the situation has already eased, and the statements made Thursday morning on Comcast’s Q1 earnings call by Sevp and CFO Michael J. Cavanagh and NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell were more measured than the latter’s quotes to the Wall Street Journal, which caused AMC boss Adam Aron to fire off a public note to Universal Studios chairman Donna Langley regarding the chain’s embargo of the studio’s slate.

Essentially, the longstanding agreement on whether a major circuit will play a studio’s same-day theatrical Pvod titles still stands: They just won’t, and Universal knows this.

Now whether the dynamics of that window changing, i.e., a title

'Sonic' Ready to Fend Off 'Call of the Wild' for Second Weekend at #1
Paramount's Sonic the Hedgehog looks to keep things rolling this weekend as it faces incoming competition from 20th Century's The Call of the Wild and Stx's Brahms: The Boy II.

We're anticipating a dip around -48% or so for a $30 millilon three-day. Should that forecast hold look for the film to top $110 million by the end of the weekend, on its way to becoming the third highest grossing video game adaptation domestically after just ten days in release.

Paranormal Activity 7 Scares Up Spring 2021 Release Date

Get ready for more found footage, ghostly scares as Paranormal Activity 7 is officially on the calendar. Paramount Pictures has revealed that the seventh installment of the long-running horror franchise will hit theaters in spring 2021. This comes after the series has taken quite the long break, but also comes as legacy franchises such as Saw and Halloween have had success recently. With that, Paramount and Blumhouse Productions feel the time is right for a return to the once-reliable hit-making series.

According to a new report, Paranormal Activity 7 (which doesn't yet have an official title) will hit theaters on March 19, 2021. This will break tradition for the franchise as the first four installments were all released near Halloween in October to capitalize on the demand for horror movies that time of year. That proved to be a solid strategy. The studio broke with that pattern for Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, which arrived in January.

Paramount Announces Release Date For Paranormal Activity 7

Paranormal Activity redefined the found footage genre and the horror industry as a whole when the first installment was released back in 2009. Since then, audiences have been treated to five more terrifying films in the iconic franchise. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to watch a new movie set in that disturbing universe since 2015, but earlier this year, Paramount and Blumhouse announced that they’d be teaming up to produce a seventh feature in the series and now it appears that we finally have a release date set.

The currently unnamed flick will hit theaters on March 19th, 2021. As of right now, there are no details regarding the film, which makes it even more enticing. Nevertheless, we’re more than curious to see what spooky happenings are going on this time around.

Four years ago, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension was marketed as the final chapter in the titular universe.
