This week: Colin Farrell plays a screenwriter who gets an unexpected violent cure for his writer's block in "Seven Psychopaths," a pitch-black British comedy co-starring Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson.

With the last two films in particular, the previews and trailers for the "Paranormal Activity" series rarely give too much away about the actual film. A large portion of the pre-release footage for "PA3" and "PA4" did not end up in the final film, so where is that extra material coming from and what happens to it beyond its use in the trailers? You're about to find out with this exclusive footage on MTV.
When the unrated edition of "Paranormal Activity 4," last year's entry into the found footage series, hits Blu-ray and DVD on January 29, it will come packaged with almost 30 minutes of "raw, unedited activity," being called the Recovered Files for the home video release.
You may want to bring a sanitary seat cover the next time you see a movie in France.
Rebellious audiences have acted out during showings of the new horror flick "Paranormal Activity 4," according to a statement French distributor Wild Bunch posted on its Facebook page, which Twitch then translated.
Angry theatergoers lashed out while watching the movie, with behavior including "confectionery counters looted, cashiers insulted, urinating on the seats, etc." Get More »
When the movie-going children of Nottingham, U.K., pranced into their local Cineworld with mums and dads in tow to treat themselves to a screening of DreamWorks' PG-rated "Madgascar 3," they got a lot more trick they bargained for.
Rather than watching the innocent animated tale of talking jungle creatures making way through Europe as expected, they were sent running and screaming from the theater as the first few minutes of Paramount's R-rated fright fest "Paranormal Activity 4" came on instead. Get More »
As expected, "Paranormal Activity 4" dominated the box office this weekend, pulling in a somewhat soft $30.2 million according to Film.com to win the top spot. That's significantly less than "Paranormal Activity 3" ($52.6 million) and "Paranormal Activity 2" ($40.7 million) made in their theatrical debuts.
"Argo," meanwhile, rode stellar word of mouth to a second straight second place finish with $16.6 million, dropping only 15% from last week for one of the best holds in Hollywood history. Alas, the news wasn't so good for Tyler Perry's "Alex Cross," which opened in fifth place with a disappointing $11.8 million.
For a full run down of the weekend box office, including figures for returning hits "Hotel Transylvania" and "Taken 2," head to Film.com.
NextMovie was lucky enough to score the (online) exclusive interview with The Demon from "Paranormal Activity"! We sat down with some candles and a Ouiji Board to talk to him about why he was attracted to the role, where he sees his career going from here, and what celebrity he'd most like to kill. Get More »
Oren Peli's original "Paranormal Activity" had a tortured history getting to screens, having premiered at festivals in rough form two years before Paramount released the $15,000 indie to unprecedented success.
As for the nightmarish sequels, things have been a dream, with the studio churning them out annually to a highly appreciative (read: scared out of their wits) audience. With "Paranormal Activity 4" about to make people poop their pampers in theaters across the country, we're asking the inevitable question: Will there be a fivequel? Get More »
Protecting yourself from a suspected demonic possession — or worse, a demon itself — is not easy. It's suggested firstly that you obtain some holy water, preferably in a large quantity. Other key implements to help you in your hour of need include religious paraphernalia, a protective circle in the form of a pentagram drawn on the floor, intervention by trained mystics and, if all else fails, perhaps the judicious use of a high gauge shotgun.
But since we don't have any of that stuff right now, here's what we're going to give you to get you ready for "Paranormal Activity 4:" Official t-shirts and posters.
Hey, you may not be protected from demons, but you'll probably have a lot more fun this way. Get More »
The "Paranormal Activity" movies are credited with taking the terror out of art-directed dungeons and dilapidated bathrooms and putting it right smack dab in the middle of our bedrooms. The "Saw" series raised a white flag of surrender after "Paranormal Activity" took most of the Halloween box office dollars in 2009, bringing an end to Jigsaw's legacy and returning us to the land of lo-fi horror.
