‘Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension’ Moved to 2015

Paramount Pictures is shaking up the order of its parade of horribles.

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension” is being moved from Oct. 25, 2014 to a March 13, 2015 opening. The film was previously entitled “Paranormal Activity 5,” but it sounds like this haunted house tale is being treated like a spin-off instead of a direct sequel.

The studio is also moving “Scouts vs. Zombies” from the March 13 slot now taken up by “Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension” and transplanting that to February 20, 2015.

The “Paranormal Activity” movie will have some formidable competition in its new release date. Ron Howard’s whaling drama “Heart of the Sea” and Disney’s live action “Cinderella” are both scheduled to premiere on that date. In its former perch it would have gone head-to-head with “Ouija” and the Keanu Reeves, “they killed my puppy” thriller “John Wick.”

“Scout v. Zombies” is a horror comedy about troop members who must save their town from the undead hordes. Tye Sheridan (“Mud”) stars. In its new slot, the film will do battle with track drama “McFarland, USA,” high school comedy “The DUFF,” the Sean Penn thriller “The Gunman” and the Natalie Portman western “Jane Got a Gun.”
