The legendary performers will be at the heart of the 90-minute TV movie "Stan and Ollie," the British Broadcasting Corporation has announced.Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, who first formed their famous comedy duo Laurel and Hardy in the US in 1927, went on to have a long and fruitful Hollywood career, including starring roles in around 100 films. The forthcoming TV movie from the BBC will not examine the pair's early years, nor revisit their success in the following decades. Instead, "Stan and Ollie" will depict the two comedians' last years, starting with their tour through the UK in 1953. In spite of declining popularity and personal problems, Laurel and Hardy were met with a warm welcome in Britain, but their tour was disrupted when Hardy suffered a heart attack. When Laurel refused to perform alone, his partner left his hospital bed and took to the stage for the remaining performances in the tour. These were the pair's last shows, as Hardy died of a stroke four years later. The screenplay for "Stan and Ollie" will be authored by Jeff Pope, one of the writers behind Stephen Frears' latest film, "Philomena." Copyright AFP Relaxnews, 2013.
Can the music streaming service from the same company that bought the world the Dr. Dre-endorsed headphones become equally ubiquitous?There is already huge competition in the music streaming market: everyone from Spotify to Google and Apple all have something to offer consumers. Still, Beats hopes to be different by focusing on curation and discovery and, most interestingly, on allowing users to listen in real time to what ‘celebrities' -- i.e. renowned musicians -- are listening to. And as well as listening in real time, users will be able to access musicians', producers' and music writers' playlists. Although the service won't officially launch until January, US consumers can sign up at BeatsMusic.com for the service now and in doing so reserve their handle, because let's face it, just like email addresses on web mail platforms, no one wants to be called @musicloevr9002786.It will be interesting to see how Beats Music performs in face of existing rivals and with the expected roll out of even more competitors, such as YouTube's music and music video streaming service Music Pass, which could launch before the end of 2013. What's more, in 2014, Apple is expected to start rolling out its iTunes Radio service beyond the US. Copyright AFP Relaxnews, 2013.

LG is taking a big step towards creating a connected home platform by adopting AllJoyn.AllJoyn is an open-source protocol, built by Qualcomm which basically allows potentially any mobile device, whether it's Apple, Android, Windows Phone or even BlackBerry, to control a TV. And in this case, control doesn't just mean changing channels, it could allow users to push content from one device to another or on to the big screen. Of the announcement, Richard Choi, senior vice-president of the smart business center at LG Electronics, said: "LG will now enable consumers to more effortlessly connect their networked devices in the home and continues to show a strong commitment to the next generation of convergence technology." The software will be integrated into LG's 2014 Smart TVs but older TVs from 2012 and 2013 will also be receiving a compatibility update over the air. Adopting AllJoyn will mean that friends gathered around a Smart TV with different phones could all use them simultaneously as joypads in social gaming. But that's just the start. The open source platform could act as a very sound foundation for building an equally open connected home. "LG sees great potential and huge possibilities in connecting multiple display products with one TV," added Choi. "Facilitating true smart home convergence, LG Smart TVs will now be able to seamlessly connect to devices regardless of brand or OS, a first-of-its-kind milestone in the home entertainment industry."

The cable network is in talks to pick up a fictional series on the life of Jesus Christ. "The Lost Years" imagines a period in the figure's life that is not chronicled in the scriptures.According to Deadline.com, the series will depict Jesus of Nazareth between the ages of 13 and 30, after the journey to Jerusalem with his parents and before his baptism by John the Baptist. This 17-year period in the religious figure's life remains a mystery today. The series will examine the controversial idea that Jesus may have begun to spread his message by performing exorcisms during this period. While his ability to heal the sick and raise the dead is mentioned in the scriptures, there is no historical or theological proof regarding whether he carried out exorcism rituals. History is in final talks with Eli Roth, Eric Newman and Scott Kosar to bring "The Lost Years" to the airwaves. The three screenwriters are known for their multiple collaborations in the horror genre, including the "Hostel" series, "The Amityville Horror" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre."

In addition to being named as the best feature, the romantic fable starring Joaquin Phoenix earned Spike Jonze the title of best director at the 85th National Board of Review (NBR) Awards, held on Wednesday, December 4.Each year in early December, the announcement of the NBR's best picture marks the unofficial start of the famous Oscars race. The organization, founded in 1909, chose to distinguish "Her" with the top prize in this 85th edition of the awards. The feature stars Joaquin Phoenix as a man who falls in love with Samantha, a virtual assistant voiced by Scarlett Johansson in the film. With three NBA Awards, "Fruitvale Station" stood out as the film with the highest number of trophies this year. The indie drama earned the awards for best first picture (Ryan Coogler), best supporting actress (Octavia Spencer) and male breakthrough performance (Michael B. Jordan). Emma Thompson and Bruce Dern were named as the best female and male lead actors for "Saving Mr. Banks" and "Nebraska" respectively. Will Forte was named best supporting actor, also for his role in Alexander Payne's father-son road movie. French actress Adèle Exarchopoulos earned the award for female breakthrough performance. The award for the best ensemble went to the crime thriller "Prisoners." The starting gun in the Oscars race The NBR seems to have avoided lavishing too much praise on films that have emerged as next year's leading Oscar contenders. Only one award each was given to the Coen brothers' folk music drama "Inside Llewyn Davis" (best original screenplay) and to "Gravity" (Creative Innovation in Filmmaking Award), and Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" was merely cited in the NBR Awards' list of the 10 top films of 2013. Finally, Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" earned the award for best adapted screenplay, and the director's career collaboration with the film's star Leonardo DiCaprio earned the duo the prestigious Spotlight Award. Though regarded as the event that kicks off the Oscars race, the National Board of Review Awards are generally not regarded as a reliable prediction of which films will dominate the Academy Awards just a few months later. The last time the two ceremonies agreed on a best picture was in 2008, when "Slumdog Millionaire" earned the distinction. Since then, between 2009 and 2012, the NBR awarded the title of best picture to "Up in the Air," "The Social Network," "Hugo" and "Zero Dark Thirty," while the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences preferred "The Hurt Locker," "The King's Speech," "The Artist" and "Argo."

Nelson Mandela inspired music, movies and literature NEW YORK (AP) — Heroic in his deeds, graceful in his manner, sainted in his image, Nelson Mandela long served as both cause and muse in the entertainment community. From the 1960s, when he was a political prisoner and South Africa was under the laws of apartheid, right up to recent times, when the racist laws of the land had fallen and he was among the world's most admired people, Mandela inspired concerts, songs, poems, fiction and movies. Artists were equally drawn to the man and to what he stood for. During the more than quarter-century that Mandela was jailed, his freedom became synonymous with the freedom of his country. Songwriters and poets invoked his name in calling for apartheid's end and an artistic boycott of South Africa. "Nelson Mandela is, for me, the single statesman in the world," Nobel laureate Toni Morrison once observed. "The single statesman, in that literal sense, who is not solving all his problems with guns. It's truly unbelievable." Elizabeth Alexander, who read the inaugural poem at the swearing-in of President Obama in 2009, had years earlier written "A Poem for Nelson Mandela," which featured the lines: "Nelson Mandela is with me because I believe/in symbols; symbols bear power; symbols demand/power; and that is how a nation/follows a man who leads from prison/and cannot speak to them." It took some daring to support Mandela during his prison years, when Mandela and the political movement he led, the African National Congress, were on international terrorist lists and opinions about him often divided between liberals and conservatives. As late as 1988, just two years before his release, an all-star concert held to celebrate his 70th birthday was censored on British television to remove political content. But just as South Africa managed a peaceful transition from apartheid to democracy, Mandela evolved from opposition leader to head of state to sage with remarkably little damage; he only seemed to gain admirers. Over the last decade of his life, Mandela presided over a series of "46664" concerts in South Africa, named for Mandela's prison number (466) and the year he was jailed, 1964. Here are highlights of works inspired by Mandela: __ MOVIES: Some of Hollywood's greatest actors played him on film. Academy-Award winner Sidney Poitier, gifted at conveying fiery resilience and good-natured restraint, was an obvious choice to portray him for a TV movie in 1997. Morgan Freeman, another Oscar-winning actor of such august bearing that his roles have ranged from judges to God, played Mandela in 2009's "Invictus," directed by Clint Eastwood, about a South African rugby team. Danny Glover also starred in a TV movie about his life, while Mandela himself made a cameo at the end of Spike Lee's "Malcolm X," released in 1992. "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," starring Idris Elba and based on Mandela's autobiography, was just released this month. CONCERTS: One of the landmarks of the movement to free Mandela was a 1988 televised concert from London's Wembley Stadium that celebrated his 70th birthday and featured such superstars as Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston and Sting. At the time, Mandela's African National Congress was still regarded as a terrorist organization by many countries and had been condemned by Britain's then-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The BBC angered Mandela supporters by censoring political statements and angered the South African government by airing the concert at all. A 1990 concert celebrating his release featured Tracy Chapman, Neil Young and Mandela himself, who received a long standing ovation. Shows in his honor continued over the decades, with Will Smith, U2's Bono and Annie Lennox among those appearing. SONGS: Songs protesting apartheid and praising Mandela were written throughout the 1980s and up through his release from prison in 1990, from Eddy Grant's "Gimme Hope Jo'Anna" to Steve Van Zandt's all-star "Sun City," featuring Bruce Springsteen, Miles Davis and many other performers, which called for artists to refuse to play in South Africa. Songs directly about Mandela included a Bono-Joe Strummer collaboration, "46664"; "Free Nelson Mandela," by Special A.K.A., an off-shoot of the Specials, and Simple Minds' "Mandela Day." LITERATURE: Nadine Gordimer's 1987 novel "A Sport of Nature" prophesized the end of apartheid and included a liberation leader based on Mandela. Poems about Mandela date back at least to the 1970s with "And I Watch it in Mandela," by South Africa's John Matshikiza. Jekwu Ikeme's "When Mandela Goes," published in 2004, bowed to mortality and looked to a future without the hallowed man, whose tribal name was Madiba: "When you go Madiba your nobility shall be our lasting inheritance this land you so love shall continue to love we shall trail the long and majestic walk your gallant walk shall be our cross and shepherd."

Going beyond Balto, new documentary shows life-saving sled dog run in Alaska 90 years ago ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A deadly epidemic had gripped a gold rush town in the impenetrable U.S. territory of Alaska nearly 90 years ago, transfixing the nation. A cure existed, but there was no way to deliver it. There were no roads available, and air supply drops weren't an option. The only solution was a nearly 700-mile sled dog relay in 1925 to deliver a life-saving serum to those threatened by a diphtheria outbreak in the rugged coastal town of Nome. A new film, "Icebound," documents the race against death and will open the Anchorage International Film Festival this week. The 95-minute picture is narrated by Patrick Stewart, and a national theatrical release is set for next spring. Eight years in the making, the film details the rescue efforts, using black-and-white photographs and film footage, interviews with survivors and descendants, modern mushers and historians, and longtime Alaska journalists. "It's a small moment in history for which you can extrapolate all these larger truths about American culture," said filmmaker Daniel Anker. The documentary revives a story that captured the nation's imagination from radio and newspaper reports — including dispatches from The Associated Press — telling of the drama playing out in the frozen north, where temperatures plunged to 50 below that long-ago January. The first of two supply runs took five days, and the saga quickly reached mythic proportions. Months afterward, a bronze statue of the sled dog Balto went up in New York's Central Park. "One of the things that's really interesting about this story has to do with the technology and what the technology could and couldn't do," said David Weinstein, senior program officer for the National Endowment for the Humanities. "Ultimately, the only way for this to work was through dogs, through an older technology." Weinstein's agency provided $695,000 to fund the $1 million project. Diphtheria is an airborne disease that attacks the upper respiratory system and has been largely eradicated. But in Nome, Alaska, in 1925, it was a deadly threat. The official medical record counted five deaths and 29 stricken residents. However, many believe that deaths among Alaska Natives were never accurately tracked during a time when they were segregated from Nome's white residents. Balto, namesake star of a 1995 animated film about the outbreak, became famous out of scores of other dogs because he was a lead canine on the last leg of the first relay. The dog was an unlikely hero. Balto was a freight dog owned by a champion musher of the time, Leonhard Seppala, a Norwegian who lived in Nome. But he never made Seppala's competitive teams of Siberian huskies because he was too slow. Gunnar Kaasen, another Norwegian and Seppala's assistant, drove the final leg of the first supply run. Kaasen was supposed to hand off the last dash to sprint champion Ed Rohn for the final stretch to Nome. But Kaasen led the team all the way in. He said later that no lights were on at a cabin where Rohn was waiting, and he didn't want to waste time. Historians say Balto and Kaasen received a lion's share of the fame that should have gone to Seppala and his 12-year-old lead dog Togo. Also, lost in the hoopla were other dogs and mushers — many Alaska Natives among them — who took part in the relay. They included Athabascan and Inupiat Eskimos. Seppala's team traveled more than 200 miles of the relay, including a treacherous 20-mile trek across the frozen Norton Sound. Kaasen's team traveled a little more than 50 miles, some of that, however, in a severe blizzard. "While it was going on, much of the coverage seemed to be focused on Seppala because he was the champion musher," said Anker, who was nominated for an Academy award in 2001 for another documentary, "Scottsboro: An American Tragedy." "When Gunnar Kaasen made his surprise appearance in Nome," Anker said, "well, it was a perfect opportunity to generate more and different stories." ___ Follow Rachel D'Oro at https://twitter.com/rdoro Copyright (2013) Associated Press.

Calle 13 frontman says Palestinians' plight reminds him of his home in Puerto Rico BETHLEHEM, West Bank (AP) — The frontman for the Grammy-winning Puerto Rican hip-hop outfit Calle 13 said Thursday that he sees similarities between the political situation of Palestinians and those of his own people. Speaking to The Associated Press in Bethlehem, where he is shooting the band's latest music video, Rene Perez said Puerto Ricans were linked to Palestinians "because we are a colony of the United States. Here you have the situation with Israel." Perez, also known as Residente, added that Puerto Rico and the Palestinians both have "cosmetic" governments. "Here most people want to be free, they fight for their country," he said in the West Bank city, the traditional birthplace of Jesus. "It would be good to start building bridges between Palestine and Puerto Rico." The Palestinians are currently engaged in peace talks with Israel that they hope will lead to an independent state in the West Bank and Gaza, territories Israel conquered in the 1967 Middle East war. Puerto Rico has been a U.S. territory for 115 years and its people have been American citizens since 1917. Residents of the island cannot vote in the U.S. presidential election, have no representation in the Senate and only limited representation in the House of Representatives. Calle 13 is known for its politically charged lyrics, Afro-Caribbean beats and raunchy dance anthems. The group has won 19 Latin Grammy Awards and two Grammy Awards. Perez, who performs along with his step-brother Eduardo Cabra, has emerged as a leading antiestablishment rapper and is a strong supporter of the Puerto Rican independence movement. Calle 13 has a long history of lacing social messages over bass-thumping beats. Perez said he chose to come to the Palestinian territories to shoot the majority of the band's latest video, "Multi Viral." He said the song is about manipulation of the media and how it distorts information. He said he worked on the song with Tom Morello, a former guitarist with Rage Against the Machine, and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. "I think music never stops being music. It always keeps being music and the message can be social, political, anything," Perez said. Copyright (2013) Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Based on Bill Willingham's award-winning "Fables" series, "The Wolf Among Us" takes players deep inside a tale that mixes folk tale and modern strife.Just as "The Walking Dead" adventure game forged its own path with a bold trip through the original story's universe, "The Wolf Among Us" takes a similar approach with "Fables." All the characters are there -- reluctant sheriff Bigby Wolf, inquisitive mayoral aide Snow White, foul-mouthed Mr. Toad -- and all are trying to get by unnoticed in New York City, but the narrative takes place 30 years before that of the graphic novel series. Five episodes are planned for Season One, with the first having released on Mac, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 to excellent reviews back in October.
