We wish him all the best with his hearing issues and future ventures. As much as we want this tour to end as it started, we understand, respect and support Brian’s decision to stop touring and save his hearing. We are dedicated to fulfilling the remainder of our touring commitments to everyone that has supported us over the years, and are fortunate that Axl Rose has kindly offered his support to help us fulfill this commitment.”As previously reported, frontman and vocalist Brian Johnson was recently forced to stop touring for risk of losing all hearing.

THE SHAMAN The highly acclaimed, blockbuster-style short film see it here first

Capture

   The Shaman came out in  March. And now, after a profitable run at movie festivals, you may lastly see it for your self.

At seventeen minutes, The Shaman is a bit longer than many different shorts, however that’s to not its detriment. It simply contributes to the general sense that what you’re truly seeing is a full cinematic characteristic movie—which is smart, because it was initially conceived as one. Marco Kalantari (Ainoa) makes use of each second he has to full impact. Now we have would-building, efficient exposition, motion scenes, and a confrontation that’s all about willpower.

The premise is that a warfare is being waged–a conflict wherein shamans are used to go to the afterlife, so as to speak to the souls of the enemy’s conflict machines. A couple of minutes of dialog can deliver these souls over–a victory for the shamans. However in a battle with one among

them, a shaman will get a than he bargained for.

he highly acclaimed, blockbuster-style short film THE SHAMAN premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in 2015. After that it ran successfully at numerous film festivals around the globe, including Los Angeles, London, San Diego and the DragonCon in Atlanta. The trailer turned into a viral sensation with over 4 million views.

The dark year 2204, in a world that has seen 73 years of continuous war. Recently mankind re-discovered the arts of Shamanism. The Shaman’s school of thought believes that every person or object has a soul. During battle Shamans step over into the Netherworld to find and convert the souls of their enemies’ giant battle machines. This tactic enables a single man to overcome an invincibly seeming steel monster.

This is the story of Joshua, a Shaman, who is sent on a mission to convert the soul of a giant battle colossus. He does not yet know that the soul is prepared for his coming and that the deadly psychological soul-to-soul confrontation in the Netherworld will be on eye level.

kit-harington-belfast-jon-snow-season-6-game-of-thrones

"Testament Of Youth" New York Premiere - Arrivals

SPOILERS, ETCETERA, for season five of Game of Thrones

Honestly if you’re not caught up on season five of Game of Thrones at this point, you should probably just turn off the internet until you’re done watching all of the episodes, because I can barely figure out not how to write a damn headline that doesn’t give everything away without just saying [REDACTED] was seen [REDACTED] in [REDACTED].

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, despite how much the Game of Thrones showrunners object and how its been hinted that he might come back as a warg, everything else is telling us that Jon Snow is still alive — from Kit Harington’s hairstyle to this location theory. And now fueling rumors, a reader of Watchers on the Wall spotted Harington on a flight from London to Belfast on Monday night. As in, the Belfast where Game of Thrones is currently filming.

This isn’t the first time Harington has been spotted in Belfast this year, as this is at least his third trip since pre-production started. Watchers on the Wall notes that, if he was just filming a funeral scene, there would probably be no need for this many visits. Harington has also allegedly been refusing photo ops with fans.

Last but not least, there was also this nugget:

For those of you deeply invested in #HairWatch, Harington was sporting a man-bun.

MAN-BUN. Guy doesn’t just go man-bunning around unless he’s got something to hide. This has been your continuing coverage of SNOWWATCH 2015, or, as we also like to refer to it as, “Kit Harington’s Personal Hell.”

Finally, Photographic Evidence that Kit Harington Has Joined the Cast of Game of Thrones in Belfast

Yesterday we posted a round-up of all the Game of Thrones actors who had been sighted in Belfast for the Season 6 script read-throughs. They included Emilia Clarke, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, and many more. But while there were rumors that Kit Harington had been spotted in the Game of Thrones home base in Northern Ireland, there was no proof yet. All that changed today when Watchers on the Wall, a site dedicated to all things Game of Thrones, posted photos of Harington arriving in the Belfast airport. The return of Jon Snow is turning into the worst-kept secret in TV history.

You can see another image of Harington’s arrival over on WoW that focuses on the actor’s on-trend man bun. Rest assured, these are taken in the Belfast airport—see this photo for comparison. And, despite the beard partially obstructing his face, that is Kit. He was seen with the same leather suitcase just a few days ago. We’re relieved to see him reunited with his Game of Thrones crew and we’re even more relieved to see his luscious, Stark-ish locks intact—even if they are tucked up into a man bun.

Does a Harington sighting in Belfast guarantee Jon Snow will return in any shape or form other than a stone-cold corpse? No, I suppose not. Charles Dance also spent some time filming in Belfast last year and all we got from Tywin in Season 5 were those crazy rock eyes.

But given all the other evidence mounting including casting news and exciting filming locations, well, the case for Jon Snow surviving the mutiny at the Wall grows stronger every day.

New Condom Will Change Colors If Someone Has An STI

The fact that someone has created a condom that can detect sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is amazing on its own, but the fact that it was invented by a team of 13- and 14-year-old students is even more impressive! Muaz Nawaz, Daanyaal Ali and Chirag Shah from the Isaac Newton Academy in London came up with the concept, calling it the ‘S.T.EYE.’

The condom glows faintly in different colors depending on what STIs it has encountered; green for chlamydia, yellow for herpes, purple for human papillomavirus, and blue for syphilis. They won the first prize (£1,000) for Health at TeenTech Awards, a competition that encourages 11-to-16-year-olds to create inventions that will help the world.

Dave Grohl 'breaks leg' in stage fall

Foo Fighters star Dave Grohl 'breaks leg' in stage fall

Media captionDave Grohl: "I'm going to go to hospital... and then I'm going to come back''

Foo Fighters star Dave Grohl is thought to have broken his leg after falling off the stage during a concert in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The band were two songs into their set at the Ullevi stadium when the singer went to jump on a ramp but missed and fell into the security area. "I think I just broke my leg," Grohl told the crowd as he lay on the ground. "I'm going to go to hospital. I'm going to fix my leg. And then I'm going to come back." He added: "You have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters - we're going to come back and finish the show."

Surreal

Eyewitnesses told the BBC that the band continued the concert, playing cover versions whilst Grohl sought medical attention.

Keiron Brennan 43, from London, filmed the moments just after the 46-year-old frontman toppled from the stage.

He said: "We were only around 200 yards away and at first we thought it was a prank but then it became apparent that it was quite serious. The drummer went ashen and jumped down to see where he was. Everyone was worried as we were only two songs into the gig and we couldn't see what had happened to him.

"He reappeared after an hour to continue the concert, sitting in a chair with his leg bandaged.

"It was surreal to see him perform on stage with a medic holding his leg. The crowd was just amazed that he was carrying on. He was just phenomenal. I can't see how he will make the next gig in Holland but then he's more of a man than I am so I wouldn't put it past him," he added.

Grohl fell at 21:00 local time (20:00 BST) and went on to perform for another two-and-a-half hours.

His band later tweeted a picture of what appears to be an x-ray of his leg.

The Foo Fighters are due to play their next concert on Sunday at the Pinkpop festival in the Netherlands, followed by Wembley Stadium in London next weekend and then a headline set at the Glastonbury Festival in the UK on 26 June.

This year has seen several musicians injured on stage.

Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine broke her foot leaping off stage at the Coachella Music Festival in April, while U2 guitarist The Edge misjudged his step and fell off the stage during the opening night of the band's Innocence and Experience tour.

Madonna also fell off stage during a live performance at the Brit Awards. The pop star continued her performance, but said she suffered "a little bit of whiplash".

Christopher Lee has died at the age of 93

Christopher Lee has died at the age of 93

The legendary actor was best known for his roles in Count Dracula, Hammer horror films, and Lord of the Rings.

CHRISTOPHER LEE, THE legendary actor who appeared in films spanning from Dracula to James Bond, has died at the age of 93. He had been hospitalised recently for respiratory problems and heart problems. The actor was best known for his dark roles in films such as The Wicker Man, Dracula, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, as well as the Hammer horror films in which he first found fame. However he was loathe to  be pigeonholed as ‘just’ a horror actor, in a career which spanned genres. He was one of the most memorable James Bond villains, playing Scaramanga in the 1974 films The Man With the Golden Gun. He was introduced to a new generation in his roles over the past two decades, including as Saruman in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, and Count Dooku in the Star Wars films. He also appeared in Tim Burton films Alice in Wonderland and Sleepy Hollow. He died on Sunday morning in a London hospital, but his death was only confirmed this afternoon.

Film legend Sir Christopher Lee has died at the age of 93, it was reported today.

The actor - known as a horror star in the 1950s before finding fame again in later life - had been treated for heart failure and respiratory problems in hospital.

He died at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London on Sunday morning, the Telegraph reported.

Sir Christopher played Dracula in a series of classic films produced by Hammer Horror, and played Bond villain Scaramanga in 1974's The Man With the Golden Gun.

He became known to a new generation of film fans with his roles in Lord of the Rings, where he played evil wizard Saruman, and the Star Wars prequels.

Some of his most acclaimed performances came in cult films - Sir Christopher starred in The Wicker Man, about a remote community living on a Scottish island, and Jinnah, a biopic about the founder of Pakistan.

After the news broke today, stars and fans paid tribute to the actor whose influence lasted for several generations.

Jonathan Ross said: 'So sad to hear that Sir Christiphet Lee has died. A great actor, a great star, a surprisingly good singer and a lovely lovely man.'

Comedian Omid Djalili wrote on Twitter: 'Scared the living daylights out of me for years. And I loved him for it. RIP Christopher Lee.'

And Boris Johnson added: 'Really sad to hear about the death of Christopher Lee, one of the greatest British actors and a master of the macabre.'

Sir Christopher was married for 54 years to Birgit Kroencke, a Danish former model. The couple have one daughter, Christina.

He served in the Special Forces during the Second World War, but always refused to discuss what he had done during the war, saying he was bound by an oath of secrecy.

As well as his acclaimed acting career, he had a sideline as a heavy metal singer, releasing four albums in the past two decades, two of which were concept albums about the medieval emperor Charlemagne.

He also unmasked himself as an unlikely Tory in later life, speaking out in support of Michael Howard, William Hague and David Cameron.

His final film appearance is set to be in Angels of Notting Hill, a comedy about the clash of the everyday with celestial beings.

From Prince of Darkness to knight of the realm: The remarkable life and times of Christopher Lee

By JENNY AWFORD 

Fame: Christopher Lee as Dracula, the role that first propelled him to public attention

Fame: Christopher Lee as Dracula, the role that first propelled him to public attention

With his piercing eyes, booming voice and chilling presence, Sir Christopher Lee will be forever immortalised as the Prince of Darkness.

His menacing charisma established him early on as one of the film industry’s world-class villains and he went on to star in more than 260 movies before his death at 93.

Sir Christopher brought a demonic intensity to all his roles and became a household name playing notorious villains including Dracula, Scaramanga in The Man With The Golden Gun, Saruman in the Lord Of The Rings, and Count Dooku in the Star Wars prequels.

Hammer Films gave him his big break when they cast him as the creature in 1957’s The Curse of Frankenstein.

His remarkable mime performance as the brain-damaged monster convinced the studio to cast him in his definitive role as the Count in Dracula.

Suddenly Sir Christopher was a bankable star.

Concerned at being typecast in blood-curdling roles and wanting to break free from his image of Dracula, he agreed to star in the 1973 film, The Wicker Man, for free and considers it one of his greatest roles.

He was knighted for services to drama and charity in 2009 and received a BAFTA Fellowship in 2011.

The Hammer Films icon was also presented with a prized British Film Institute Fellowship by his Sleepy Hollow co-star, Johnny Depp, at the 2013 London Film Festival.

Depp described him as a 'national treasure' and said working with Lee was a 'childhood dream come true'.

Often hailed as 'legendary', Sir Christopher once joked: 'To be a legend, you've either got to be dead or excessively old.'

Standing at an imposing height of 6ft 5in, the world champion fencer did all of his own stunts and holds a Guinness World Record for participating in more on-screen sword fights than any actor in history.

Fluent in English, Italian, French, Spanish and German, he added to his impressive resume by providing the voice-over for many films and video games, including cult classic The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Sir Christopher also used his resonant and unmistakable tones to record several musical works and said he would rather have been an opera singer than anything else.

He became the oldest person ever to record lead vocals on a heavy metal track when he released a progressive symphonic power metal EP about the life of Charlemagne at the age of 88.

By the Sword and the Cross was so well received that he was honoured with the Spirit of Metal award in the 2010 Metal Hammer Golden God awards ceremony.

His career and unusual home life was recounted with self-deprecating wit in his autobiography, Lord of Misrule.

The book gives the reader a privileged glimpse into his upbringing and family life, revealing that he is descended from papal nobility.

Devoted: Sir Christopher was married to his wife Birgit for more than half a century

Devoted: Sir Christopher was married to his wife Birgit for more than half a century

His mother, Contessa Estelle Marie, was a famous Edwardian beauty who was painted by Sir John Lavery, Oswald Birley and Olive Snell.

Sir Christopher was happily married to Danish model Birgit Kroencke for 53 years and they had a daughter named Christina Erika Carandini Lee.

Before breaking into the film industry, he served in the Royal Air Force and intelligence services during the Second World War.

He was tasked with helping to track down Nazi war criminals in 1945 when he was seconded to the Central Registry of War Criminals and Security Suspects.

Sworn to secrecy, Sir Christopher has been guarded about disclosing any details of his work in military intelligence.

He said: ‘When people say to me, you know - were you in this? Were you in that? Did you work in this? Did you work in that? I always used to say ‘Can you keep a secret?’ And they would say 'Yes, yes' and I would say "So can I".’

Although he will probably be most remembered for his portrayal of a bloodsucking vampire, the true story of his life is actually more strange and fascinating than any of the films he starred in

Tim Curry appearance after suffering stroke

Tim Curry makes rare public appearance after suffering stroke as he accepts Lifetime Achievement Award at Tony Awards party

Nearly three years ago actor Tim Curry suffered a stroke that continues to affect his speech.

But despite the health woes, the 69-year-old was in good spirits as he was honored with The Actors Fund Lifetime Achievement Award on Sunday at the Tony Awards Viewing Party in Los Angeles.

Speaking to Los Angeles magazine, he said that he has been 'doing well' and was 'looking forward' to receiving the honor.

'I’ve done a few benefits for the Actors Fund and I think it’s a marvelous organization. I hope not to have to use it,' the acclaimed character actor quipped.

The Actors Fund provides assistance with the cost and arrangements of funerals and burials.

And it is the Legend star's sense of humor that has helped helped him to remain optimistic since his July 2012 stroke when he collapsed at his Los Angeles home.

'It’s not tough to maintain,' he explained. 'It is just part of my DNA.'

The magazine noted that his 'speech is slowed a bit.'

In December last year, he made an appearance for a Christmas Eve dinner at Ago restaurant in Los Angeles with a friend, who pushed the It actor in a wheelchair.

Tim is best known for his role as the brilliantly mad transvestite scientist Dr Frank N Furter in the The Rocky Horror Show.

He first starred in the original 1973 London production, and continued to play the part on Broadway before playing the same character in the 1975 film.

On the role that catapulted him to stardom, he told Los Angeles magazine that he looks at the film's success 'with a sort of bemused tolerance.'

He continued: 'It’s neither a blessing nor a curse. I was lucky to get it.'

For many years he rarely discussed the movie, fearing he would be typecast.

Good humor: The Home Alone 2 star cited his humor for helping him through his health crisis

Tim recalled opening night during his Broadway debut in The Rocky Horror Picture Show as 'very exciting' but found its critics to be far too harsh.

'I had to go on the Today Show the next day and they read the reviews - which were appalling,' he explained. 'That brought me down. It was very cruel.'

The reviews described his performance as ‘a mixture of Joan Crawford and Burt Lancaster’ and ‘Mick Jagger, David Bowie and Marc Bolan all in one.'

Stage legend: Between 2004 and 2007 he played King Arthur in the Monty Python musical Spamalot on stage in Chicago, Broadway and the West End

However, he won over the Broadway community in 1981 when he was nominated for a Tony Award for the lead role in the play Amadeus.

'It was a brilliant play and a terrific production. And a wonderful part,' he said of portraying Mozart.

'The big problem is not to make him as loony as he is, but to make him sympathetic as well.'

Between 2004 and 2007 he played King Arthur in the Monty Python musical Spamalot on stage in Chicago, Broadway and the West End.

Some of his stage credits include What About Dick? My Favorite Year and Travesties, among others.

In 2011 he was scheduled to appear in Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead, however he withdrew from the production at the last minute citing ill health.

Meanwhile, at the viewing party, the veteran actor arrived in a black suit and was seated in a wheelchair.

He joins Theodore Bikel, Alfred Molina and Joe Morton as recipients of the same lifetime achievement award.

'It means that it just sort of solidifies the kind of work the American acting community has given me for years now,' he said of the honor.

'It’s very gracious of them, I think. I was thrilled when they told me and I am thrilled now.'

When asked what life would be like for him if it reflected the theater, he said: 'Scary. Well the theater is scary. And the longer the time in between the periods in the theater, the scarier it gets.

Adding: 'Life isn’t meant to be scary. It’s to be celebratory. In which case, it would be like the theater. I think of that as a celebration of life.'

A Comparison Between the Distance Frodo and Sam Walked in ‘Lord of the Rings’ to Distances on Maps of Earth

USA LotR walking comparison

Imgur user mattsawizard calculated the distances for each leg of Frodo and Sam’s epic journey around Middle-earth in The Lord of the Rings and made visual distance comparisons on maps of Britain, Europe, and the United States. He determined that the entire journey spanned a total of 1,350 miles walked (though he does note that part of their journey from Lorien to Amon Hen was in a boat), which is about the same distance from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas.

Europe LotR walking comparison If London were Hobbiton, walking to Mount Doom would be like walking to Niš, Serbia.

LotR walking comparison 3 From Hobbiton to Bree would be similar to going from London to Nottingham, which is 120 miles, or 40 hours walking.

LotR walking comparison 2 From Bree to Rivendell would be like walking from Land’s End to London, which is 300 miles, or 90 hours walking.

LotR walking comparison 1 From Rivendell to Moria would be 175 miles, or 60 hours walking, spanning the same distance as from Manchester to London.
