As of this writing, there are just under 50,000 votes for where to bring "Paranormal Activity 4." The top two cities in the running to launch the film early are Lake Bluff, Ill., and Purchase, NY. Typically, the larger, more populated cities will find themselves at the top of the list, with the original film going wide in Chicago and New York, along with 13 smaller cities, as part of Paramount's ingenious marketing ploy. After a million hits and votes, Paramount went wide release with the original film on Oct. 16, 2009.
CHUD.com has posted Paramount's media release, which discusses the Facebook voting, as well as how important it is for the fans of the series to "Demand" the film in their city. Teaming up with Facebook is a smart move, considering the film seems to follow a teenaged protagonist. The trailer is attached to the remake of "Total Recall," which stars Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale.
