Paranormal Activity 3 Blu-ray Announced

Paramount Home Entertainment has sent early word to retailers to expect the third entry of the successful Paranormal Activity series in stores on January 24, 2012 (pre-order today).

Arriving as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, the release will include both the theatrical version of the film and an unrated version with footage not seen in theaters, as well as Lost Tapes that reveal more footage not seen in the film (perhaps all those missing sequences from the theatrical trailers?).

Also, in a first, all three films in the franchise will be available for Digital Download prior to the Blu-ray/DVD debut. This unique experience, called Paranormal Activity: The Chronology, presents the films in chronological order as a seamless marathon.

The Blu-ray is presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French 5.1 Dolby Digital, Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital, Portuguese 5.1 Dolby Digital and English Audio Description with English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles. The DVD in the combo pack is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 televisions with English 5.1 Surround and English, French, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles. The digital copy is presented in English.

Blu-ray:

o Original Theatrical Version of the Film
o Unrated Version of the Film
o Lost Tapes

DVD:

o Unrated Version of the Film
o Digital Copy of Unrated Version—Compatible with iTunes® and Windows Media

The Wal-Mart stores are getting on the Paranormal Activity bandwagon as it will offer a trilogy DVD set that includes the theatrical and unrated versions of all three films plus all previously released bonus material. The unrated version of Paranormal Activity 3 will be available on a single-disc DVD exclusively at Walmart on February 14th. A single-disc DVD of the theatrical version of the film will also be available nationwide on February 14th.
