Paramount's scary movie will go up against a Lionsgate comedy and a Warner Bros. crime drama on Oct. 19
"Paranormal Activity" will return to movie theaters this October — a month that traditionally has been successful for the horror franchise — Paramount Pictures said Wednesday.
The studio will release the fourth installment of its series on Oct. 19.
The most recent "Paranormal" movie, this year's "Paranormal Activity 3," was released Oct. 21. It opened to $54 million for the biggest October opening ever. The first "Paranormal," made for a mere $15,000, grossed $193.3 million worldwide. It was released the last week in September, 2009. The second, made for $3 million, grossed $177.5 million worldwide. It was released Oct. 22, 2010.
"Paranormal 4" will open against "The Big Wedding," a romantic comedy from Lionsgate, and "Gangster Squad," a Warner Bros. crime drama.
TheWrap reported in October that a fourth "Paranormal" was all but certain.
