Paramount Unveils Spoilery New Paranormal Activity 3 Trailer and Allows Fans To Pick Premiere Cities
Just because you're not receiving mysterious VHS tapes in Austin this week -- where rumor has it Paramount may premiere Paranormal Activity 3 tonight as a secret screening at Fantastic Fest -- does not mean that you won't get to see the franchise prequel before its October 21 release. The studio has just launched a Twitter campaign which allows fans to vote on 20 cities to host special pre-release premieres. And if that still isn't soon enough for you Paranormal fans out there, Paramount has just released a majorly spoiler-filled new trailer for the film from Catfish directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. Click ahead at your own discretion.
To participate in Paramount's "Tweet To See It First" campaign, simply go to the Paranormal Activity 3 website here, and select your city from the global map, which will also serve as the point of entry to create a tweet with a special set of hash tags that link directly to Twitter. Once your tweet posts, it counts as a vote.
The competition is open to fans all over the world and will end at 11:59 p.m. PDT on Thursday, October 13th. The 20 winning cities -- which will host special October 18th premieres -- will be announced on Friday, October 14th.
Paramount's "Tweet To See It First" campaign is similar to a campaign led by the first film's director Oren Peli in 2009 which asked fans to "demand" which city they would like to see Paranormal Activity open in next.
