Teaser For The Trailer For ‘Paranormal Activity 4′!!! (I Wish Teasers For Trailers Didn’t Exist)

paranormal-activity-banner

We broke the news back in January that, after hitting a home run with Paranormal Activity 3, both Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman will be returning to direct Paranormal Activity 4 for Paramount Pictures. Since then we’ve had almost no news (no one has) except that Matt Shively (April Apocalypse) had been cast as “Alex”. And that’s it.

But now we have a teaser trailer. And to say that it doesn’t show much would be an understatement. Kind of weird that we live in an age that there are advertisements for advertisements.

Joost and Schulman co-directed Catfish independently before it was acquired by Universal. PA 3 has made over $200 million at the box office worldwide, while the entire Paranormal Activity franchise has pulled in approximately $577 worldwide at the box office alone making it a near billion dollar franchise (when you include home video).

Toby returns October 19, 2012. The full trailer hits Wednesday, August 1st. Head inside for the teaser! Also – are teasers for trailers worth it? Let us know!

    Well this was rather pointless…much like the entire series.

  • Aaron Emery

    Almost as pointless as a trailer that shows a bunch of good stuff that’s not even in the movie…

    Aaron Emery, EXACTLY!!!!! i’m not really into these movies. part 1 was decent but part 2 i desperately WANTED the horrifically annoying father & mother (the sister and cute baby Hunter were cool) to die a painful death. all these movies are are annoying jump scares with an occasional cool moment. part 3′s overt misleading trailers/tv spots (which consisted of admittedly cool footage that wasn’t in the fucking movie!) pissed me off. i DO want to know what happened to Katie & Hunter though and it looks like this movie will show that. dvd rental/watch online for sure but i do want to know the fate of those 2.

    I really enjoy the films but Evan you are spot on. Teasers for trailers are whack.

  • zaglewiz

    I’m gonna treat this like I did the Saw movies and just ignore em and pretend they aren’t there.

  • diapers

    I’m sorta okay with teaser-trailers. If I’m going to waste time trolling for video, these beat looking at stupid cat trick footage.

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    I actually like the ‘Paranormal Activity’ films. I always have a great time sitting in my seat at a theater because of audience reaction, which is rare now a days even with other horror movies. Even though I may be immune to such scares, it’s always fun to watch others squirm… With that being said, I think it’s stupid to have a teaser for a trailer.

  • KnightOfTears

    Hmmmmmm, not much to this for sure. However, I am curious as to who the blonde woman at the 0:07 mark is. It flashes really fast.

  • Aaron Emery

    You know what I would rather see this Halloween? You’re Next.

    • theodds22

      YES YES YES! I’m freakin stoked for You’re Next!

  • marierobinson

    Teasers for trailers definitely get me excited (especially if I love the series like I do Paranormal Activity) but it seems they leave some frustrated and wanting more. The latter seems like a good thing, though…

  • AbsintheGrey

    I enjoy the Paranormal Activity series. This trailer was completely useless.

  • flesheater24

    hey evan I am with you on that one> Whoever was the moron who thought this was a solid idea is dumb as fuckin nails and should lose his/her job LMFAO this the worst idea ever. I even hate TV SPOT’s, and teasers, but I like them a little more then this stupid crap.

    As for this PA4 I am waiting to see the full trailer. #3 is the best so far hope they go #3′s route.

    • theodds22

      seriously? the story and the scares are slowly going downhill since the 2nd one. the 3rd’s story line was totally shit for me. :| I am also waiting for the trailer to see if this is any good. :)

  • m-m-m-MONSTER_KILL

    I like the Paranormal Activity movies, but for some reason I absolutely fucking HATE the Katie character. Every time she had a cameo in 2 and 3 I just wanted to punch her in the face, an emotion which mirrored how I felt the entire running time of the first movie. She was just such a bitch…

  • theodds22

    Well that made no sense. Like the story lol. i really like this series, part 1 was awesome, 2nd one was good but the 3rd one was meh. The conclusion of the latest one was shit, they went to a whole new story that includes witches. :| I hope they have stuck with the ghost idea but hey, maybe this will be a good watch.

    • Nothing333

      Actually it still stuck with the demonic presence, as witches have traditionally been thought to consort with devils and their ilk. It just gave insight why it was Katie’s family, it opened up the mythology. Respectfully I believe part 3 is where the the series got really interesting story wise.

      • theodds22

        Maybe I’m not that into witches and rituals. But don;t get me wrong, I liked the 3rd one and I’m looking forward on the 4th installment. :)

  • ThunderDragoon

    FINALLY they’re moving forward! Can’t wait to see what chaos Katie causes! :D

  • Marty McFly

    *sigh* Really? These movies suck so hard. Nothing about them is remotely scary. They’re boring, overrated and useless. They’re just going milk the franchise for everything it’s worth….

    • John Marrone

      YES!! Its Marty McFly!!
