$193 million and $176 million worldwide. Those are box office hauls of "Paranormal Activity" and "Paranormal Activity 2," and those are the two primary reasons that "Paranormal Activity 3" is on the way and by the looks of the first trailer, the filmmakers are taking a "if -it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it" approach.

This time around Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost, the duo behind last year's controversial "Catfish," are directing the film which as a script from Christopher B. Landon, who wrote the first entry in the franchise and overall, no one is deviating much from the found footage approach. Not much to else to say really. The trailer gives you what you totally except, and while the "Bloody Mary" game sequence is pretty nifty, the reveal is pretty dull, though audiences love jump scares, so we're sure it will do just fine. And oh yeah, judging by the video timestamp, looks like we're in prequel (or at least flashback) territory...

"Paranormal Activity 3" will turn out the lights and crank up the volume on October 21st, just in time for Hallowe'en. Trailer below.

    fucking lame trailer. the found footage material at time looks too cinematic. These guys manipulated the circumstances well with catfish but I'm not convinced they are skilled filmic storytellers. FLOP

    I am glad to see these guys' careers extending past an 'it' movie at Sundance. Can't wait to see what they bring to the franchise, though it already looks fairly original. I love that they are challenging themselves by doing a prequel set in the 80's rather than a film with advanced technology. It sets up more barriers story wise.

    I also like that the series is going completely backwards on the timeline as opposed to forward. Interesting stuff.

    it's a shame that i'll probably watch this which means i'll be supporting those smug pricks who directed Catfish. I'd rather cram my twelve dollars directly up their asses.
