It's been 13 years since the horror cycle of the legend of Samara was apparently broken, but it seems she has not killed her last victim yet. When Holt decides to investigate the curse (which has now faded into urban legend), he is rescued by his girlfriend Julia who watches the fatal tape instead of him online, giving herself seven days to live. Those seven days prove to be a terror-filled nightmare; she is haunted by supernatural forces and her telephone burns a Braille message into her palm. She and Holt decide to investigate deeper into the mystery and try to find a way to end the curse before it's too late. They visit a blind man named Burke who tells them that the message on her hand reads 'rebirth', and informs them that they have opened a door which has endangered everyone. Because one thing that nobody new about the legendary videotape was that there was actually a movie within the movie.

Jim Parsons and the stars of The Big Bang Theory have scored massive new salaries.
Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki have signed deals worth $1 million per episode to continue on The Big Bang Theory for an eighth, ninth and tenth season, tripling their current $350,000-an-episode salaries.
The cast of The Big Bang Theory have scored generous pay hikes
As the Hollywood Reporter notes, when the cast of Friends united to score $1 million per episode deals in 2012, the show was doing nearly 25 million viewers a week. Twelve years later, The Big Bang Theory generates about 20 million, with half the ratings of the NBC stalwart. Nevertheless, Cuoco, Parsons and Galecki teamed up with just weeks to go before the new season's production start date and CBS had to listen.
Big Bang actors ask, Big Bang actors get
The Big Bang Theory Season 8 is back on track after the folks at Warner Bros TV picked up the toys from the boardroom floor and placed them carefully back in Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, and Johnny Galecki’s respective prams.
The core Big Bang cast
The trio has been asking for ‘Friends money’, something akin to what the gang were getting per episode for the last two seasons of the legendary sitcom, anyway. And while, to many sensible humans that seems like an incredibly skewed and selfish outlook on life, they are attracting ‘Friends viewing figures’, so it was only a matter of time before they were given what they were demanding.
Big Bang stars demand big raises, but it won't be a problem, say WB and CBS officials.
Season 8 of The Big Bang Theory is mercifully being delayed over contract disputes between Warner Bros. TV and Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kayley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar. According to E! Online, the contract standoff has been going on for a while, but it’s only now that the impasse is beginning to affect production.
The contract standoff is becoming a problem.
The cast of The Big Bang Theory demand a pay increase up to $1million per episode - but are they worth it?
Production of season 8 of the TheBig Bang Theory is yet to be confirmed as the stars of the show and its production company continue to wrangle over contract negotiations.
Jim Parsons' character Sheldon Cooper is the show's stand-out comedy character
According to Deadline.com, the entire original cast have not signed new contracts and a major issue which is dragging the deal is thought to be the actors’ pay-per-episode amount.

The actress and the musician finally tied the knot!
Actress Sara Gilbert and singer-songwriter Linda Perry have gotten married. The couple of three years finally tied the knot on Sunday after getting engaged last April, according to Mail Online. The ceremony reportedly took place in front of close friends and family at a location overlooking the ocean. Describing the event as "magical," Aisha Tyler, Gilbert's The Talk co-host, spoke about the couple's big day saying that it "was the most beautiful ceremony at sunset overlooking the ocean."
Sara Gilbert & Linda Perry Have Finally Tied The Knot.
Tyler didn't want to spoilt things for Sara when she returns to the show so didn't offer any more details of the special day. According to Gilbert, Perry planned a romantic proposal with a secret backing band that emerged when the couple were enjoying a picnic in the park. "We go to a park, and we have food and we're eating it, it's really sweet and there's this guy sitting playing guitar, like a street musician, and he starts playing this song that we love," Gilbert recalled. "I'm like, 'Oh, that's so weird, this is so magical and amazing.'"
It's three more for BBT
The Big Bang Theory, which debuted back in 2007 and has been an exponentially rising in popularity ever since, will be on TV screens for another 3 seasons following CBS’s order. This will take the sitcom into double figures with a total of 10 series – can it go even further?
Sheldon and Howard work things out in the season 7 finale
If these stats continue, there’s no reason why not; The Big Bang Theory is currently averaging 19.79 million viewers with a 6.1 rating in adults 18-49, and a 7.8 in adults 25-54. Any performances akin to that in the 8th, 9th or 10th season, then you can expect to see 11 and 12.

Renegotiations could make the cast of BBT one of the highest paid sitcom teams in history.
Two of the ladies of The Big Bang Theory cast - Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch - have reportedly banded together and earned themselves a significant pay increase for the show’s upcoming season. After a highly rated previous season and given the kind of script they’ve had to work on, it sounds like a well deserved raise, although the exact amount has not been announced by Deadline, who originally reported the story.
Parsons heads up a cast of extremely well paid actors.
However, according to CNN, both actresses new salaries are somewhere in the neighborhood of $60,000 per episode, which is more than double their current salaries of $20,000 - $30,000 per episode. That’s not the end of the pay raises though – by the end of their contracts, both Bialik and Rauch are expected to earn about $100,000 per episode.
Main cast members demanding more despite current salary up to $325K per show.
The cast of The Big Bang Theory are reportedly in talks to be paid a higher salary per episode filmed. The show's three lead actors, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki, are seeking potentially enormous pay rises and will negotiate with the show's bosses to reach an agreement.
Jim Parsons, AKA Sheldon Cooper, Could Earn Up To $1M Per Episode.
Parsons, Cuoco and Galecki, who's characters Sheldon, Leonard and Penny sit at the centre of the show's events, currently get paid $325,000 per episode. The last time the trio negotiated a pay rise was in 2010 but the show has since seen a much higher level of success.

They may play a bunch of socially awkward nerds on screen but The Big Bang Theory team were the popular kids of the party as they scooped three awards at the 2013 Critics' Choice Awards.
Hit CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory brushed off comedy contendersat the 3rd annual Critics' Choice TV Awards winning 'Best Comedy Show', 'Best Supporting Actress In A Comedy Show' (for Kaley Cuoco) and 'Best Supporting Actor In A Comedy Show' (for Simon Helberg).
The show centres on a quartet of scientists who work at the same company, tracking the hilarities of their everyday lives including their shortcomings with women and love of comic books and sci-fi.
Cuoco plays Penny - their ditzy waitress neighbour who moves in in the first episode and becomes romantically involved with Leonard (Johnny Galecki), who is the most socially adept of the nerdy friendship group. Helberg plays Howard - a self-professed 'ladies man' who lives with his overbearing Jewish mother until his wife Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) forces him to move out.

The Big Finale airs tonight and it promises more "nerd drama" than ever.
It’s that time of the year again – the season of season finales – and one of those is the final episode of Big Bang Theory. Not the final final one, though we don’t see any reason to care, if it were otherwise. But still, the series will trudge on, promoting stereotypes of smart people, while at the same time peddling to those exact same nerds. At least there’s some nice juicy drama in this one though, which comes from the thriving relationship of Leonard and Penny, surprisingly. But when Leonard gets a gig with an expedition with Steven Hawking’s team, the question is, where will their relationship go from there? Of course, Raj and his girl are having some problems too and Sheldon’s problem is that he, surprisingly, is afraid of being left alone and wants Leonard to stay. Of course, you don’t really care about the plot, because The Big Bang Theory is mostly about Sheldon’s oh-so-hilarious misanthropic quips (which, coincidentally, might be symptomatic of some form of autism).
In six seasons, Big Bang has more than doubled its viewership and is currently one of CBS's top productions. So, who knows, maybe there's something there. If you’re keen on watching the team’s shenanigans, the finale will air as usual tonight (Thursday) on CBS.
