Paul Dano, best known as a star of Little Miss Sunshine and There Will Be Blood, will be in the area to screen his new movie Being Flynn at the Pocono Community Theater in East Stroudsburg on April 27. The screening […]

How PR Works in Today’s World of Entertainment

Links: UPDATE, 2:25 p.m.: Just thought I’d throw this in here that Glee (fourth season), Raising Hope (third season) and New Girl (second season), all PopRox-approved shows, have been renewed by Fox for the 2012-13 TV season. None of it is that big of a surprise, although Raising Hope’s ratigns aren’t exactly fantastic and it loses a […]

Super Bowl Hangover, Now with Less Booze

Links: If you didn’t know who MIA was Sunday morning, you probably do now. And isn’t that the point of flipping the bird while 111 million people are watching? To make sure you get noticed by the 110.5 million that didn’t know you before? So good for her. She made sure she’ll stay in the international conscious […]

What to Expect from the Super Bowl if You’re Not Expecting Anything

If you still think the Super Bowl is about football, then Bernie Madoff probably wants to talk to you about some interesting investment opportunities. The Super Bowl is now about commercials.
