This October marks the fourth year in a row that Paramount Pictures has terrorized audiences with a new entry in their wildly successful found footage franchise Paranormal Activity. Already the series that focuses on the demonic exploits that plague one doomed family has earned more than $575 million worldwide. To be sure their latest installment, Paranormal Activity 4, scores with audiences, Paramount brought back Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (of Catfish fame/infamy), the cheered co-helmers of the surprisingly sharp prequel Paranormal Activity 3, to continue to grow the world of these freaky films. But to give their box office an additional boost, the studio is also offering an IMAX release of killer Katie's latest adventure.
Variety reports that Paranormal Activity 4 is being digitally re-mastered with a reworked sound and image quality suitable to the immensity of IMAX presentation. While the film will open nationwide October 19th, kicking off with sure to be spirited midnight screenings, its IMAX version will launch at about 300 locations as early as October 18th at 9PM. So keep all this in mind while deciding on which Paranormal Activity 4 ticket you want to buy.

"Cloud Atlas," the sprawling science fiction epic from the makers of "The Matrix" trilogy, will unfold on IMAX screens, Warner Bros. said Monday. The film, which features Tom Hanks in a hideous '70s-era comb over and beige turtleneck sweater, as well as Hugo Weaving in drag, tells several interwoven stories of love, hope and rebellion across many eras. It co-stars Halle Berry and Hugh Grant and was directed by the Wachowskis ("The Matrix") and Tom Tykwer ("Run Lola Run").
"Cloud Atlas" will be digitally re-mastered for IMAX screens and released in the format on select North American screens on Oct. 26, 2012.
