The week in film: 'Paranormal Activity 3' and 'Margin Call'

October 21, 2011 |  1:46 pm

"Paranormal Activity 3"

It's an interesting weekend at the movies. A found-footage horror film, "Paranormal Activity 3," tries to solidify its status as a stalwart Hollywood franchise. Meanwhile, a drama about the financial crisis, the Zachary Quinto-Kevin Spacey film "Margin Call," tells of a night in which Wall Street traders see their world collapsing around them.

How will filmgoers respond to a story that seems tailor-made for this Occupy Wall Street moment? The Times' Nicole Sperling and Steven Zeitchik offer their breakdown of the week in Hollywood.
