Paranormal Activity 7 Scares Up Spring 2021 Release Date

  • MovieWeb
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 Sets 2021 Dates for ‘Paranormal Activity’ and ‘My Little Pony’ Films

  • The Wrap
Paramount has set release dates for upcoming installments to their “Paranormal Activity” and “My Little Pony” series, development of which were previously announced.

The seventh installment of “Paranormal Activity” will be released on March 19, 2021 and will be the first installment in the microbudget horror series since “Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension” in 2015. Known for their very low budgets — the original 2007 film was made on a $15,000 budget — the “Paranormal Activity” series was a lucrative franchise for Paramount but had future sequels temporarily shelved after “The Ghost Dimension” grossed only $78 million at the box office, down from a peak of $207 million for “Paranormal Activity 3” in 2011.

Capcom Says Mega Man Live-Action Movie Still In The Works

Following Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox earlier in the year, a report was released that led many to believe that the much rumored Mega Man live-action project had been permanently shelved. However, thanks to the Japanese publisher’s financial results, which were released today, it looks like Capcom is still in the process of developing a pic centered on the pint-sized Blue Bomber, as well as a movie set in the Monster Hunter universe, too.

Here’s the rundown from Capcom’s new financial report:

…To generate synergy with its popular games via greater global brand awareness and value, the Company has been producing world-leading content, with brands such as Street Fighter and Resident Evil being made into Hollywood movies, now followed by Monster Hunter and Mega Man, which are also scheduled for live-action film adaptation.

Even though Capcom confirms that a Mega Man live-action adaptation is still in the pipeline,

‘Joker’ To Laugh Up $155M+ Opening Around The World – Box Office Preview

‘Joker’ To Laugh Up $155M+ Opening Around The World – Box Office Preview
After its bold and triumphant premiere at the Venice Film Festival, Golden Lion winner Joker goes out in most overseas markets Wednesday with previews starting stateside at 4 p.m. Thursday. All in, Todd Phillips’ R-rated origins take on Batman’s chief villain is set to post a global debut of $155M, which would be the second-best for October behind last year’s Venom ($207.4M).

Neither headlines about security threats at U.S. theaters, nor the pic’s R rating has slowed tracking forecasts, which still have the movie eyeing a October-record domestic opening of $80M+ at 4,300 locations, upsetting Venom‘s $80.25M. That theater count reps a new high for October, besting Venom‘s 4,250-venue launch last year. Should the Warner Bros-Village Roadshow co-production come in less than $80M, then it’s on the hands of non-fanboys and crossover audiences, who might find this tough pic about a deranged guy hard to swallow.

Review: Look Away (2018)

Maria (India Eisley) is a lonely 18-year-old high school student, who after feeling rejected by her family and tormented by her peers, begins to communicate with her reflection in the mirror – only here the girl in the mirror is more than just a reflection. It is a girl called Airam and she is able to communicate back. Airam is initially supportive towards Maria, who has become increasingly withdrawn, and offers her a solution to her torment. She has the confidence to say what Maria is thinking, the drive to get what she wants, but there is also an ulterior motive and a more sinister side to Airam.

Look Away is a slow brooding psychological thriller from writer-director Assaf Bernstein, which plays out differently to what you may initially expect, moving away from the more obvious concept of a demon in the mirror. A concept we have seen in various forms

‘Glass’ Now Looking At Third-Best Mlk Weekend Opening With $47M+ Despite Cracks In Tracking – Sunday Final

‘Glass’ Now Looking At Third-Best Mlk Weekend Opening With $47M+ Despite Cracks In Tracking – Sunday Final
Final Sunday Am after 7:49Am post: Glass, like a horror movie, was front-loaded in regards to its $14.6M Saturday being down 9% from its $16M opening (which included previews). This is a different path from M. Night Shyamalan’s previous film Split which saw a 13% spike between the two days going from $14.6M to $16.5M.

This puts Glass at a 4-day that’s under $50M at $47M per Universal. Some think the Blumhouse/Bvi production can still hit $50M in four days which would be spot on at the low-end of Uni’s projections. We deep-dived in the previous update how rival major studios had high expectations for Glass as they saw a 4-day between $57M-$70M and avoided competing against the film. The problem here? Rivals and exhibitors were working off Split‘s gas, however, Universal always knew internally that the opening was well below that and tried to manage expectations.

Netflix Acquired The Rights to The True Life Creepy Story of The Watcher

In 2015 a creepy-ass stalker who called himself The Watcher, terrorized a family forcing them to move out of their dream home. Now, Hollywood is looking to cash in on this true life horror story and at the same time help the family that was affected.

'Halloween' Set for Second Weekend at #1 as Holdovers Continue to Dominate

'Halloween' Set for Second Weekend at #1 as Holdovers Continue to Dominate
October 2018 is still running at a record pace. As of October 24, the month was pacing +49% higher than last year, not to mention +7.8% ahead of 2014, the largest October on record, though that's about to change by the end of this weekend. That said, it won't be the weekend's new releases doing the heavy lifting, but the weekend's holdovers, starting with last weekend's chart-topping horror hit Halloween. The weekend's new wide releases will mostly debut in the low-to-mid single digit millions with Lionsgate's Hunter Killer expected to top the week's crop of new releases. Looking to repeat at #1 is Universal's release of Blumhouse and Miramax's Halloween, which delivered a smashing $76.2 million opening last weekend, the second largest October opening ever. When it comes to its sophomore session we looked at other R-rated horror hits such as It, The Conjuring, Paranormal Activity 3 and The Nun, which dropped, on average, -57.45% in their second weekends.

‘Halloween’ Producer Jason Blum Is Down for a Sequel: ‘We’re Dying to’ Make One
Halloween” grossed $76 million its opening weekend and broke records in the process, so it’s hard to imagine there won’t be a sequel to the Blumhouse film.

That said, Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse Productions, told TheWrap that while there is definite interest there to make a sequel, nothing has been greenlit — yet.

“It’s hard to make a great movie, period, and I always say, make a great movie first and we’ll figure out a franchise after,” Blum told TheWrap. “Of course we would want to make a sequel, in fact, we’re dying to make a sequel, but we’re guests in Malek Akkad’s house so there are a lot of people that have to be in the same mindset as us. Nothing’s been set in stone, but we’re certainly going to try.”

From Blogger to ‘Halloween’ Producer: How Ryan Turek Got a Stab at This Year’s Biggest Horror Hit

From Blogger to ‘Halloween’ Producer: How Ryan Turek Got a Stab at This Year’s Biggest Horror Hit
Years before he produced “Halloween,” this year’s biggest horror hit, Ryan Turek was nowhere close to developing films: He was commenting on horror blogs’ message boards.

Turek moved to Los Angeles in 1999 with dreams of becoming a screenwriter. He never imagined masterminding a “Halloween” film that has grossed $76 million its opening weekend, breaking records in the process.

It’s a story of the unconventional way Blumhouse does business — and harnessing the power and passion of fandom into box-office dominance. The company hired Turek based on his passion, obsession and expertise on the horror genre, and proved they’d rather listen to a true fan than an executive who might not know horror.
