Paramount Pictures is clearly in no rush to get their next installment in the Friday the 13th series into theaters. The movie had already been pushed back eight months from its scheduled March 13, 2015 release to a November 13, 2015 release. Now comes word the studio has bumped it back yet again to a May 13, 2016 release.
Paramount has also decided to push back the release of the next entry in the Paranormal Activity franchise, while scheduling a release date for the third movie in The Ring series.
If the Paranormal Activity franchise hasn’t gotten old for you yet, no worries, more movies are still on the way.
Paranormal Activity 5 (or Paranormal Activity 6 if you count the recent spinoff The Marked Ones), has been given an official title and a new release date. The sequel, which was set for release on October 25th of this year, will now be released on March 13, 2015 and will be called Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension.
People either love or hate the Transformers film franchise. On one hand, Michael Bay has helped bring the war between the Autobots and Decepticons to life; and on the other, we got to hear many variations of Shia LeBeouf saying “No, no, no.” But the popularity of the source material is one of Paramount’s cash cows, and now they will be extending it as they have announced that Transformers 5 will be hitting theaters in 2016.
Paramount made the sequel announcement recently at a film conference in Europe. Other titles announced for 2016 include: Star Trek 3, G.I. Joe 3, Beverly Hills Cop 4, Hansel and Gretel 2, and Paranormal Activity 5. Hit the jump for more info.
Paramount Pictures is doing a bit of shuffling of their upcoming release slate. Instead of releasing Paranormal Activity 5 on October 25, 2013—which would have made five in the same amount of years—the studio has instead decided to push the next installment in the found footage horror franchise back to January 3, 2014.
To fill the vacated October 25th spot, Paramount has announced that they will release Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa on that date. The title may not sound familiar at first, but anyone who’s watched the Jackass movies will be familiar with the Bad Grandpa sketches in which Johnny Knoxville is completely transformed into a convincingly realistic old man named Irving, who would set out and cause mischief.
