While the headline is a little misconstrued since the film has already been shown to the Fantastic Fest audience (check out our review here) and we were the first public audience to check it out. Still, Paramount is embracing Twitter in trying to see what city will get to see it first on October 18th. With us being located in St. Louis, we will be a bit biased and give you the text you should tweet to get it here!
Tweet the following to try and get St. Louis as one of the Top 20 places to show the film first:
- Be the first to see #ParanormalActivity 3. Tweet To See It in St. Louis! Www.ParanormalMovie.com
- Want to be the first to see #ParanormalActivity 3? Tweet To see It in St. Louis! Www.ParanormalMovie.com
- Can’t wait for October 21 to see #ParanormalActivity 3? Tweet To see It first in St. Louis! Www.ParanormalMovie.com
From the Press Release:
HOLLYWOOD, CA (September 28, 2011) – In an unprecedented move, Paramount Pictures will debut PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 exclusively in cities where the most
fans “Tweet To See It First”. This first ever of its kind campaign launched today at 8:00 a.m. PDT and is open to fans worldwide. PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 will premiere
on October 18th in the top 20 cities with the most tweets, 3days before the film’s global release.
“The support of this franchise from the online community is phenomenal. We again look to reward them for that support by offering them the chance to see it first, this time
expanding our reach globally,” said Rob Moore, Vice Chairman of Paramount Pictures. To vote, fans can go to www.ParanormalMovie.com and select their city from a global
map, which will also serve as the point of entry to create a tweet with a special set of hash tags that link directly to twitter. Once a tweet posts, it counts as a vote. A leader
board will show the top 20 global markets in real-time.
The “Tweet To See It First” competition is available to audiences worldwide and ends at 11:59 p.m. PDT on Thursday, October 13th. The top 20 cities will be announced on
Friday, October 14th.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 is produced by Jason Blum, Oren Peli and Steven Schneider and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman from a screenplay by Christopher Landon.
