Paranormal Activity 5 Confirmed For October 2013
Paranormal Activity 5 has been confirmed for an October 2013 release date by Paramount Pictures.
The announcement continues the trend that has seen a PA film released every Halloween since 2010, as the franchise continues to take over from the ''Saw'' series, a previous Halloween favourite which ended after its seventh outing.
Curiously, the fifth addition to the franchise will be shot partly in Spanish, possibly hinting that events will take place elsewhere than its usual US setting, although Katie Featherson is set to reprise her role as Katie, who is still possessed by the demon.
The franchise has been a box office sensation, and the original film currently ranks as the most profitable ever, having been made for a measly $15,000 and returning $193 million. PA 3 was the most critically successful of the four, and also the most profitable, generating $205 million worldwide.
While PA 4, released last October, was met with a lukewarm response from critics, it continued the trend of box office success for the series, making a total of $135 million worldwide.
