Blumhouseâ€™s first production following the high-quality micro-budget model was the original Paranormal Activity, which was made for $15,000, released by Paramount Pictures, and grossed close to $200 million worldwide, making it the most profitable film in the history of Hollywood. The sequel Paranormal Activity 2, grossed close to $170 million worldwide, setting additional box-office records.
Last year, Blumhouse produced highly-profitable movies like James Wanâ€™s Insidious which had a budget of $1.5 million and grossed close to $100 million worldwide and Paranormal Activity 3, which had a budget of $5 million and grossed over $200 million worldwide. Premiering later this year is Sinister, directed and co-written by Scott Derrickson and starring Ethan Hawke for Lionsgate/Summit, and Paranormal Activity 4 for Paramount Pictures.
