Found Footage Friday: ‘Paranormal Activity 3′

16 October 2014 11:41 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Paranormal Activity 3

Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman

Written by Christopher Landon

2011, USA

Sequels in horror franchises are rarely ever connected to their predecessors with the exception of the same villain/outline that proves profitable. What makes the additions to the Paranormal Activity franchise different is that each follow-up expands the universe, further exploring the demon that plagued Katie and Micah in 2009. With Katie and Kristi both having their adult horrors played out onscreen with Paranormal Activity and Paranormal Activity 2, let’s do the time warp again.

The year is 1988, and cinematographer Dennis (Chris Smith) is moving in with girlfriend Julie (Lauren Bittner) and her two daughters Katie and Kristi. The story opens at a family wedding Dennis is filming, some of the conversation between attendees reveals quick insights into his relationship with Julie before the couple moves in together. Dennis and Julie aren’t getting married prior to the move, »

Dune Capital Buys Out Elliott Management’s Relativity Stake

2 October 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Investor Steven Mnuchin, Relativity Media CEO and Chairman Ryan Kavanaugh and Dune Capital Partners IV have agreed to buy out much of Elliott Management’s stake in the film and television studio.

Elliott will remain a minority investor in the studio. In addition, Relativity announced that Mnuchin has been named co-chairman of Relativity’s board. In a release announcing the transaction, Relativity said he is being brought on to prepare the company for possibly going public in 2016. The move gives the studio’s management greater operational control, which would be helpful in pulling off an Ipo.

“Steven has been a trusted advisor for years, and I personally recruited him to join our board,” Kavanaugh said in a statement. “He brings an unrivaled perspective on the ever-increasing value of content in Hollywood and Wall Street, and his experience will prove invaluable as we continue moving toward an Ipo.”

Fact: There Is No Such Thing as Too Much Zac Efron Shirtlessness

11 September 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Get your smelling salts ready - Zac Efron has gone shirtless yet again, and his toned body is still as gorgeous as you remember it. The actor put his rock-hard abs on display multiple times this week for his newest project, We Are Your Friends, in Malibu, CA. On Tuesday, during a bit of downtime from filming on the beach, Zac compared shirtless bodies with director (and familiar face to Catfish fans) Max Joseph. On Wednesday, Zac was spotted filming on a balcony with Max; another Catfish personality, Nev Schulman; and Emily Ratajkowski. Zac has a good reason to be proud of his physique, as he recently won the award for best shirtless performance at the MTV Movie Awards. Fans will likely remember that Zac was forced to strip during the award show when an overeager Rita Ora tore his top right off his body during his acceptance speech. He »

Catfish Host Nev Schulman Admits He Punched a Woman in College, Insists It Was "a Case of Self-Defense"

10 September 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

While Catfish host Nev Schulman may spend his days unraveling the truth and lies of online dating, it seems that the MTV star has now found himself at the center of his own headline-making scandal following the release of his new book, In Real Life: Love, Lies & Identity in the Digital Age.  In his tome, the self-professed "Dr. Drew of online relationships" details an incident which took place back in 2006 while he was attending college at Sarah Lawrence. During his junior year, Schulman describes how he accidentally "punched" a person in self-defense while serving as a photographer at the school's annual Sleaze Ball, a coming-out dance celebrating Lgbtq students, only to later »

Sarah Lawrence Student Says Catfish’s Nev Schulman Punched Her ‘Repeatedly’ in the Head in 2006

10 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In his new book, In Real Life: Love, Lies & Identity in the Digital Age, Nev Schulman — the boyish host of the MTV show Catfish — writes about the time he was “tossed out” of Sarah Lawrence College for punching a girl in the face. In the passage, Schulman explains away his behavior by saying he “hadn’t been aware of” the fact that the person he punched was a woman, because she was “short, stocky, crew-cut-styled.” So it struck many former students at Sarah Lawrence as hypocritical when Schulman tweeted a selfie from an elevator on Monday night, condemning former Ravens running back Ray Rice for domestic abuse against his wife, with the message “Real men show strength through patience and honor. This elevator is abuse free.”The anecdote Schulman shares in the book is also strange, not just because of the casual tone in which it’s written, but »

‘Catfish’ Star Nev Schulman Fires Back at Criticism Over Ray Rice Elevator Selfie

9 September 2014 4:14 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Catfish” star Nev Schulman hit back at critics who blasted him for tweeting an elevator selfie just hours after NFL star Ray Rice's graphic assault video was leaked Monday. Coincidentally, the MTV host confessed to punching a woman in his recently released autobiography. Though Schulman insists the incident was self defense and that he would never make light of domestic abuse. “In college, I was in a situation where I was forced to defend myself, after being suddenly attacked,” Schulman told TheWrap. “Charges were brought, but my case was almost immediately dismissed as this was clearly a case of self-defense. »

Craig Ferguson Hosts Celebrity Name Game Hitting September 22

6 August 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Television without game shows has just gone wrong, and even if there is a whole network devoted to them (which puts out original efforts), and there are a few primetime stabs at the general idea, the genre is decidedly missing from the landscape.

The show boasts a casual atmosphere, and the chance for contestants to team up with celebrities for a chance at $20,000.

That’s Enough With the Special Guest Stars, ‘Catfish’

10 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

MTV’s Catfish doesn’t always save the big catches for its season finales – the first season finale centered on a tale so classic that it seemed as if it should be served with a side of fries and some coleslaw, a genuine romance marred by one half of the couple sending pictures of someone else and lying about her life (they eventually worked it out, at least for a bit), while the second season ended with a somewhat similar storyline (though this one was elevated by the revelation that the Catfisher had already run this same game on the Catfishee before) – so while we’ve come to expect blockbuster season finales from most other shows, the reality program seems disinterested in delivering that kind of television. Unless, of course, there’s a supermodel available to assist hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph as they go about their searching (read: stalking, Googling »

Catfish Finale Recap: Can Catfish Make You a Better Person?

10 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Fellow fishermen, we have reached the end of season 3. Can you believe it? As a present for wading through all the complex cyber love stories this season, Catfish is giving us a guest star. In this episode, Selita Ebanks is taking shotgun, while Max Joseph is sent to the back of the car to film. After hearing the model was a fan of the show, Nev Schulman invited her for a ride-along. At first it seems ridiculous to have a random celebrity join the team, but Ebanks proves she knows how to serve harsh truths and offer tender moments just »

Catfish Recap: Meet the Self-Proclaimed 'King of the Catfish'-es

12 June 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"This is the kind of loser that gives our show a bad name," Max Joseph indignantly proclaims before storming off-camera in the most recent episode of Catfish. So yeah, this one was a doozy. This season, Nev Schulman and his camera-claw buddy Max have encountered lying family members, talented schemers and scorned celebs, but they were still shocked by the web of lies they unraveled this time. The saga starts with John, a city boy born and raised in South Detroit, also known as Dearborn, Michigan. John comes to our Catfish connoisseurs with the usual tale of finding love online »

Zac Efron Becomes DJ for 'Catfish' Series Host Max Joseph to Direct

6 June 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

No, this isn't some kind of sequel to Neighbors where Zac Efron's fraternity brother character finds a new, thoroughly appropriate profession to follow his party years in college. Instead, The Wrap reports Efron is in talks to star in an untitled project set up at Working Title (coincidentally enough) that will be a coming-of-age story about a young DJ working on what he hopes will be his first hit track. Max Joseph will direct the film, and while you may not know him as a filmmaker, he's a co-host of MTV's TV series "Catfish" with the original film's director Nev Schulman. Will this just be a flick for the MTV generation then? More below! It's hard to say, but Joseph has already gotten awards for his commercial Follow the Frog: And he also directed an acclaimed documentary short called 12 Years of Dfa Records which played South by Southwest.

Tracie Thoms on Catfish: Everything You Need to Know About the First Celebrity on the MTV Show

5 June 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Tracie Thoms made a splash on TV on Wednesday, but it wasn't for a new role. The actress and singer was the first celebrity to appear on Catfish seeking the help of Nev Schulman and Max Joseph. In case you missed it, here's what went down. Thoms, who is known for her roles in Rent—both on Broadway and on film— and Cold Case, had been in contact with a super fan by the name of Sammie. Sammie helped promote Thoms' projects and the two communicated via Twitter. As Thoms said in the episode, a fan like Sammie is a dream come true to spread the word about projects. But Thoms wasn't the only person Sammie was speaking to. She also befriended Thoms' producer friend Lotti Knowles and The Glee »

Sometimes celebrities really are just like "normal people." Not only do they buy groceries and go to the park, they can also get caught up in the tangled web of a catfish, as Rent actress Tracie Thoms did in the latest episode of Catfish. The star reached out to Nev Schulman and Max Joseph for help following up on a deceiving Twitter fan. By the time our boys arrived, Tracie had already discovered that one of her Twitter followers was pretending to be someone she was not.
