About Furious 7
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast across the globe in the Extended Edition of their most gravity-defying and emotional adventure yet. Targeted by a cold-blooded black-ops assassin with a score to settle (Jason Statham), their only hope is to get behind the wheel again and secure an ingenious prototype tracking device. Facing their greatest threat yet in places as far away as Abu Dhabi and as familiar as the Los Angeles streets they call home, the crew must come together once again as a team, and as a family, to protect their own.

COMCAST CUSTOMERS CAN NOW “SHARE” LIVE STREAMS TO THE TV
New Xfinity Share App Lets X1 Users Live Stream Video and Send Photos and Recorded Videos to Each Other in Real Time
Comcast today announced that Xfinity customers on the X1 Entertainment Operating System can now live stream their favorite life moments over the Internet from their smartphone to the television to share with friends and family. Through the company’s new Xfinity Share app, customers can live stream or send photos and recorded videos to their TV, or to the TV of another X1 customer, as well as live stream and share content to mobile phones.
To use Xfinity Share, currently both the sender and receiver must be Xfinity Triple Play customers with X1 DVR capable set-top boxes.

So now a grandmother in San Francisco can watch along on her TV at the exact moment her grandson in Philadelphia blows out his birthday candles.”
To stream to the TV, users just need to follow these simple steps: open the Xfinity Share app, select “Stream Live” and accept the notification that appears on the TV.
The Xfinity Share app is available to download for free from the Apple Store for iOS devices or from Google Play for Android devices. The app leverages WebRTC, an open Internet standard that supports real-time communication over Web browsers. Comcast is one of the first companies to optimize this technology for the TV.
“WebRTC is a powerful technology that we’re bringing to the TV,” said Franklyn Athias, Senior Vice President, Comcast IP Communications Services. “WebRTC and X1 are a natural fit. The most advanced television entertainment operating system and the most flexible real-time communications tool combine to offer a cross-platform, multimedia experience like no other. We’re connecting customers to whom and what they love in more ways than ever.”

In 1999, it was The Blair Witch Project. In 2009, it was Paranormal Activity. In 2015, a new film will revolutionize horror. Universal Pictures presents Unfriended.
Directed by Levan Gabriadze and written by Nelson Greaves, Unfriended follows a group of high school teenagers haunted by the spirit of their dead friend on the one-year anniversary of her tragic suicide. The movie is set as one long, terrifying Skype chat in which a group of teens are terrorized by the spirit of their former friend, who committed suicide after an embarrassing video of her was posted online. At first they think it’s a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends’ darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing something or someone that wants them dead.
I had the opportunity to interview Greaves about the origins of Unfriended and how the initial story came together.
As the writer, it was a challenge to come up with material that was compelling enough without having to resort to multiple locations. “I approached this as I was writing a play… and the sort of the same logic questions and challenges that come up were going to be things we were going to be tackling,” Greves said. “At the same time, we also see the benefits of the play. You don’t think about anything else. It’s just the characters. It’s just the world. If you can convince people to buy into that then you can have something that’s much more dramatic than throwing chainsaws…”
Each actor was assigned their own room in the house where the movie was shot and spent long days going through the entire script in one take. The technical crew designed a system where the actors could all see and hear each other, as well as hear direction from the directors. The filming process was far from typical. The entire movie was shot on GoPro cameras to make it look like an actual video chat. “I thinking liberating is the best way to describe (the filming process). We are actors that come from improv backgrounds. I’ve worked in TV and film and you’re really not allowed to do that a lot of the time,” Courtney Halverson stated.
Overall, Unfriended is a horror film very of its time. It premiers in theaters April 17.
“We weren’t setting out to tell a digital horror story. We weren’t setting out to tell a story about digital relationships. We set out a story about the way people live now,” Greaves said.
