Remember when we unveiled that Poltergeist clip and told you about our Periscope event? Well, the time has come! Tonight at 5pm PST, check out the Collider Periscope account to open a portal to “the other side,” the grim half-way point where the Poltergeist takes its victims. The portal will open for about 5 to 10 minutes at a time and give you the chance to have a personal interaction with an evil entity from the other side.
In case you haven’t created a Periscope account yet, it’s a new app from Twitter that lets you host a live broadcast that your followers can watch in real-time. I can’t say I’m hooked just yet, but I have been playing around with it quite a bit over the week and it could be a game-changer for immersive marketing.
So don’t forget – tonight, starting at 5pm PST on Periscope. You can also follow ColliderNews on Twitter for more info. Poltergeist opens in 2D and 3D on May 22nd, and stars Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jared Harris, Saxon Sharbino, Kyle Catlett, Kennedi Clements, Susan Heyward, Jane Adams and Nicholas Braun. In case you missed it, you can find the Poltergeist clip we debuted below:
Here’s the official synopsis for Poltergeist:
Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.
