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!
