Fresh Clips from ‘Retreat’ and ‘Paranormal Activity 3′

MTV has premiered two new clips from a pair of upcoming genre films starting with a fifth teaser for Paranormal Activity 3 — this one’s not for the kiddies. Directed by Catfish duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the sequel arriving in theaters October 21 takes place in 1988 where young sisters Katie and Kristi befriend an invisible entity who resides in their home.

The second piece of footage comes from Samuel Goldwyn Films’ Retreat (review), which stars Cillian Murphy (Sunshine, 28 Days Later), Thandie Newton (Vanishing on 7th Street, 2012) and Jamie Bell (Death Watch, King Kong). Carl Tibbetts makes his feature directorial debut on the film, which “finds Murphy and Newton heading to a remote island cottage to rebuild their frail marriage. When a wounded and armed stranger (Bell) shows up at their door with news about a deadly airborne virus, they must seal themselves inside the cottage, where the tension starts to escalate from psychological to physical.” It also arrives in theaters October 21.
