"Paranormal Activity 4" Scares Away Competition, Part 5 to Spook Theaters October 2013 

"Paranormal Activity 4" was the box-office champion this past weekend, raking in $30.2 million for the No. 1 debut. BUT, that's a big drop from the last two installments ("PA3" debuted with $50 million and "PA2" with $40). Still, the fourth installment only cost $5 million to produce and still beat the competition such as Tyler Perry's "Alex Cross." ("Paranormal Activity 4" Movie Review)

Perry, ditching his Madea persona, embraced the character that Morgan Freeman used to play in "Kiss the Girls" and "Along Came a Spider." But the audience did not buy it...that much. "Alex Cross" debuted at NO. 5 with $11.8 million. Yup, a dud.

Meanwhile, Ben Affleck's "Argo" continued to yell "Argo, F&*k yourself" to its competition, remaining strong at No. 2 with $16.6 million and dropping just 15 percent from its debut! I love this movie, so go watch this intriguing, funny, heartfelt Iran hostage crisis flick from Affleck. (Ben Affleck "Argo" interview, Bryan Cranston "Argo" interview, "Argo" movie review)

"Paranormal Activity 4" might have had a whimper debut, but it's still a strong opening, so, Megan Colligan, Paramount president of domestic marketing and distribution, revealed that "Paranormal Activity 5" will spook theaters next October. And if you have seen "Paranormal Activity 4," you saw the Spanish teaser at the end of the movie. Well, that's a spinoff to be released earlier next year, targeting Hispanic viewers. But according to THR, the film will be predominantly in English.

Here's the Top 10 Box-Office Films for the weekend of Oct. 19th:

1. "Paranormal Activity 4," $30.2 million ($26.5 million international).
2. "Argo," $16.6 million ($1.2 million international).
3. "Hotel Transylvania," $13.5 million ($14.5 million international).
4. "Taken 2," $13.4 million ($23.6 million international).
5. "Alex Cross," $11.8 million.
6. "Sinister," $9 million ($2.3 million international).

Another year, another “Paranormal Activity” movie. This is the fourth one, but are the scares fading (movie review below)?

New "Carrie" Teaser/Trailer! 
Okay, I don't normally condone remakes, but this one seems interesting. First of all, it's from Kimberly Peirce, the director who made Hilary Swank a first-time Oscar winner in 1999's "Boys Don't Cry." Second, I adore the main cast -- Chloe Grace Moretz as Carrie (Sissy Spacek memorably played this role in the original) and Julianne Moore as her crazy and ultra-religious mom, Margaret White (played by Piper Laurie in 1976). This one, of course, is a re-imagining of the Stephen King creation.

We may not be able to forget the Brian De Palma 1976 original, but I'll give this new "Carrie" a chance when it opens on March 15, 2013.

Take a look at the new teaser trailer:

Robert Pattinson to "Hold On To Me!" 

I wish, HA! But the "Twilight" star, winding down from all the vampire hoopla, has signed on to star with Carey Mulligan in "Hold On to Me" according to Deadline. The film will be directed by James Marsh, the Oscar-winning guy who gave us the excellent documentaries, "Man on Wire" and "Project Nim."

"Hold On to Me" is a true-life tale about a woman and her boyfriend who kidnap and ransom the town's richest man. But, things go awry. Things always go awry in this type of films right? But Pattinson is not going to play the boyfriend, he will star as Jimmy, the woman's love. And he's not involved in the crime. The script is written by Brad Ingelsby.

Post-"Twilight," Pattinson is involved in many projects including "The Rover" where he will star opposite Guy Pearce; Pattinson is also starring in "Mission Blacklist" about the hunt for Saddam Hussein.

As long as he's not putting on fangs, I'm perfectly happy with his choices.
