A new trailer for what is referred to as the “cousin” of the ‘Paranormal Activity’ franchise called ‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’ was released by Paramount Pictures today, and it looks pretty awesome. The newest addition takes place in Oxnard, California and centers on Jesse, a Hispanic teenager that’s just trying to figure out what the hell is going on inside of him.
Take a look for yourselves here:
Looks like the film still has the creepy crawly moments that we all love and live for in this edition, but it also looks a bit more polished and has more of a Hollywood blockbuster feel to it.
Seems that the filmmakers are gearing this more towards an Hispanic audience, but based on the trailer, however, it doesn’t seem like it will be hard to get people to flock to see it. This genre in particular has done extremely well in the past and is one of the only franchises that has had every follow up film released in theaters. True movies like ‘Friday the 13th’ have about 10 additions to the original movie (who can forget ‘Jason x’, so epic) but only one or two ever make it to the big screen. All the rest are straight to video/Netflix/whatever-you-watch-that’s-not-in-a-theater.
In addition to ‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’, the original series is also coming out with ‘Paranormal Activity 5‘ which will grace us with its presence on October 24, 2014. Fans of the movie will be sadly disappointed this year without their Halloween fix of the ‘PA’ franchise.
In an interesting twist to make fans battle it out and hold superiority over one another, the filmmakers are asking people to tweet, text, smoke signal a picture of something paranormal going on in their city and send it in. Details below:
‘The Marked Ones’ is slated to hit theaters January 3, 2014, let us know in the comments section below if you plan to see it then!
