Parnormal Activity Getting a Full Limited Release

The little film that we have been raving about for over two years, Paranormal Activity, has been throwing Hollywood for a complete loop these last couple of weeks, and we couldn’t be happier for all parties involved. In fact, the film is doing so well that in response to all of your DEMAND IT feedback, Paramount is opening the film even wider and in regular all-day rotation.

From the Press Release:
Paramount Pictures’ new thriller PARANORMAL ACTIVITY sold out all of its Thursday thru Saturday midnight screenings in 33 cities across the country this weekend, earning a per screen of $16,000 for a total estimated gross of $535,000.

Hundreds of thousands of fans from across the U.S. have overwhelmingly demanded PARANORMAL ACTIVITY in their area, prompting Paramount Pictures to expand the hit horror film to over 40 markets, and they will begin offering the movie at all hours, including the previous midnight only venues, starting next Friday, October 9th.

“The fans have spoken, and we are listening,” said Paramount Pictures Vice Chairman Rob Moore

Word has it that if Paramount gets over a million DEMAND IT requests, it will finally give the film a proper wide release. So what are you waiting for? MAKE IT HAPPEN! Hit the below image and do your part!

  1. Stand & be heard! I’ll “beg” for any quality film like this one over the foul tripe Hollywood normally tries to pass of as entertainment. This is exactly what those multi-million dollar wastes of valuable resources deserve, is a quality entertaining film that didn’t even cost $20,000 to come by and kick them in the pants! I hope this film gets a wide release so we can see how it fairs against lame-brain zombie “comedies” and all the remake pukes in theaters now. Here’s to hoping 2010 is the year of the indy-film!

  2. I think this is all great! I have a baby at home and can’t go to another city let alone another state to watch a midnight movie. I can’t wait to see if this movie finally makes it to Baltimore!

  3. I actually don’t think it’s too bad of an idea. I like feeling like our collective voices were heard for once.

    • I agree completely. I shouldn’t have to drive to another state to see a movie. All of this “You’ve demanded, we’ve listened” crap doesn’t mean anything if you live in smaller state without any big cities.
      This is all just a huge tease to a lot of people who would be happy to spend thier hard-earned dollars to see a film like this.
      There is no way that this film can’t make money now, so why not just release it wide so everyone can get a chance to see it. I don’t know how long it would take to reach “1 million” demands, but I personally would like to see the film this year.

  4. They should have done it to begin with, I was one who complained about it aswell, this is great news. Now I can finally see it friday!
