LADY ANTEBELLUM AND HANK WILLIAMS, JR. TO PERFORM ON “AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS” LIVE MONDAY, DECEMBER 15, ON FOX

December 11, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

ACCA_LadyAntebellumPerforming_Post

Nashville, TN (December 11, 2014) – Country trio Lady Antebellum and, in a rare television performance, country legend Hank Williams, Jr. will join previously announced performers Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Kelly Clarkson, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood on the inaugural AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS, airing LIVE from Nashville’s Music City Center on Monday, Dec.15 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

 

Hosted by Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS is based on country music’s longest-running radio countdown show, “American Country Countdown with Kix Brooks,” and will honor country music’s biggest stars based on album sales and radio airplay. Presenters for the inaugural show include country artists Kix Brooks, Sara Evans, Hunter Hayes, Maddie & Tae, Scotty McCreery, Kip Moore, Thomas Rhett, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell and Chris Young. NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher and 2014 National League MVP Clayton Kershaw, actors Emily Kinney (“The Walking Dead”) and Melissa Fumero (BROOKLYN NINE-NINE) and Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev will also present.

 

The two-hour show will also honor Kenny Chesney with The Groundbreaker Award, which recognizes an artist who has consistently pushed the boundaries and is a trailblazer in the realm of concerts, musical accomplishment, creative innovation and connecting with fans across the United States. Chesney will be on hand to accept his award. Multimedia entertainer Reba will receive the first-ever NASH Icon Award, presented by Kix Brooks, which celebrates an iconic artist whose extraordinary talent has influenced generations of musicians and who has made a profound and lasting impact on country music. Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert will join together to honor Reba with a special tribute performance.

 

Lady Antebellum recently released their fifth studio album, 747. The 11-song disc has already spawned the platinum certified, multi-week chart-topping smash hit “Bartender,” and its new single “Freestyle” is quickly climbing the charts. They have sold over 11 million albums worldwide, and have made nine trips to number one on the country radio charts. They’ve earned six Platinum singles and “Vocal Group of the Year” honors from both the CMAs and ACMs three years in a row. Lady A just wrapped their headlining TAKE ME DOWNTOWN tour, which hit 80 cities in the US and Canada over the course of the year. They delighted both fans and critics, with the Dallas Morning News declaring “Lady Antebellum shows off its warranted leap to superstardom.”

 

Though he began his career in the shadow of his legendary father, Hank Williams Jr. emerged as a formidable Country singer-songwriter in his own right with 1960s hits such as “It’s All Over But The Crying” and “Cajun Baby.”  But things changed with the 1979 release of “Family Tradition,” where he broke the Nashville mainstream by adopting a rebel image and writing/recording in a style incorporating his Blues and Southern Rock influences.  The results  were staggering as 42 Top-10 hits followed, two CMA Entertainer of the Year honors, three ACM Entertainer of the Year honors, multiple Grammy nominations and a Grammy award for “There’s a Tear in My Beer,” a duet with his father using electronic merging technology.  As groundbreaking as Hank Williams Jr. became, it wasn’t just his performance that people took note about, but rather his songwriting that became so notable.  The driven musician penned hits songs year after year scoring 20 BMI Awards.  One of the arguably most-heard Country song of modern times, the four-time Emmy award-winning “Are You Ready For Some Football?,” which was heard nationally as the theme song of ABC and ESPN’s Monday Night Football telecasts, was aired for 21 years.  As the accolades kept coming, Williams sold over 55 million albums, achieving gold, platinum, and multi-platinum status along with 13 of those albums hitting the no. 1 spot on the Billboard chart.  In 2008, Williams was honored with the BMI Icon Award at the 56th Annual BMI Country Awards, joining the elite group of past honorees including Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Dolly Parton. 

 

The AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS is produced by dick clark productions.  Allen Shapiro (CEO, dick clark productions), Mike Mahan (President, dick clark productions), Mark Bracco (Executive Vice President, Programing and Development, dick clark productions), John Dickey (Executive Vice President of Content and Programming, Cumulus), Richard Godfrey (“MTV Europe Music Awards”) and Tom Forrest (“CMT Crossroads”) are executive producers. Baz Halpin is co-executive producer.

 

AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS finalists and winners, other than Breakthrough Artist of the Year, are determined based on statistics and radio airplay charts from Nov. 1, 2013-Oct. 31, 2014. The finalists for Album of the Year were based on album sales from SoundScan and the finalists for Artist of the Year were based on a combination of Mediabase airplay, digital data provided by Big Champagne and tour information from Pollstar. All other award categories were made up of those with the largest audience reach, according to Mediabase.

 

Tickets to the event are on sale at TheACCAwards.com/tickets.

“David Letterman has given to all of us a remarkable legacy of achievement and creative brilliance that will never be forgotten,” said Leslie Moonves, President and CEO of the CBS Corporation. “It’s going to be tough to say goodbye, but I know we will all cherish the shows leading up to Dave’s final broadcast in May.”

The longest-tenured late night talk show host at more than 32 years, Letterman, who has hosted CBS’s LATE SHOW for 22 years, announced his retirement on the April 3 broadcast. Since its CBS premiere on August 30, 1993, Letterman’s LATE SHOW has won nine Emmy Awards and a staggering 73 Emmy nominations. Letterman debuted on the late night scene Feb. 1, 1982 with the premiere of his groundbreaking “Late Night with David Letterman,” which ran for 11 ½ years and was honored with five Emmy Awards. As of May 20, 2015, Letterman will have hosted 6,028 total episodes of both “Late Night” and the LATE SHOW.

In 1992, he received the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award for taking “one of TV’s most conventional and least inventive forms – the talk show – and infusing it with freshness and imagination.” In March 2011, Letterman was awarded the prestigious Johnny Carson Award for Comedic Excellence at Comedy Central’s first annual “The Comedy Awards.” Letterman has also won two American Comedy Awards as Funniest Male Performer in a Television Series, and in 2012, he received the Career Achievement Award from the Television Critics Association.

VIZ MEDIA DEBUTS NAOKI URASAWA’S SUSPENSFUL MANGA SERIES MASTER KEATON

December 9, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

MasterKeaton-GN01-3D

Gripping Manga Series With Post-Cold War Era Intrigue And Espionage From The Award-Winning Creator Of MONSTER And 20th CENTURY BOYS Launches This Month!

San Francisco, CA, December 9, 2014 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, is proud to deliver the launch of celebrated manga creator Naoki Urasawa’s tense post-Cold War detective suspense – MASTER KEATON – on December 16th.

The 12-volume manga (graphic novel) series has never been released in English before, and each volume will receive a deluxe treatment featuring approximately 18 pages of full-color artwork. MASTER KEATON was created and drawn by the award-winning manga artist Naoki Urasawa with story co-produced by Hokusei Katsushika and Takashi Nagasaki. It will be published quarterly under the company’s VIZ Signature imprint and will be rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens and carry an MSRP of $19.99 U.S. / $22.99 CAN.

MASTER KEATON joins VIZ Media’s library of other critically acclaimed manga titles by Naoki Urasawa that includes PLUTO: URASAWA × TEZUKA, MONSTER: THE PERFECT EDITION, 20th CENTURY BOYS and 21st CENTURY BOYS.

MASTER KEATON introduces Taichi Hiraga Keaton, an archeology professor and part-time insurance investigator known for his successful and unorthodox methods of investigation. The son of a Japanese zoologist and an English noblewoman, educated in archaeology at Oxford and a former member of the SAS, Master Keaton uses his knowledge and combat training to uncover buried secrets, thwart would-be villains, and pursue the truth. The manga series was originally published in Japan between 1988 and 1994 in Big Comic Original magazine and also inspired a popular 39-episode anime adaptation.

“MASTER KEATON is an engrossing manga series that follows an unlikely hero who solves mysteries and helps people with quick-thinking and suspenseful action. Keaton himself is a fascinating, unassuming character, which makes for an interesting contrast against the tense environment of late 1980’s Europe,” says Amy Yu, Editor. “Originally published prior to the success of later series like MONSTER and 20th CENTURY BOYS, MASTER KEATON displays the detailed art and strong multi-layered plot development that have become cornerstones of Naoki Urawsawa’s repertoire. We’re honored to add this series to our collection of titles from this visionary creator, and we invite readers to dive into the drama of this exciting new release!”

Naoki Urasawa’s career as a manga artist spans more than twenty years and has firmly established him as one of the true manga masters of Japan. The acclaimed creator won the 2011 Eisner Award for Best U.S. Edition of International Material – Asia for his series, 20th CENTURY BOYS (also published by VIZ Media). Born in Tokyo in 1960, Urasawa debuted with Beta! in 1983 and hasn’t stopped his impressive output since. Well-versed in a variety of genres, Urasawa’s oeuvre encompasses a multitude of different subjects, such as a romantic comedy (Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl), a suspenseful human drama about a former mercenary (Pineapple Farm; story by Kazuya Kudo), a captivating psychological suspense story (NAOKI URASAWA’S MONSTER), a sci-fi adventure manga (NAOKI URASAWA’S 20th CENTURY BOYS), and a modern reinterpretation of the work of the God of Manga, Osamu Tezuka in PLUTO: URASAWA × TEZUKA. Many of his books have also spawned popular animated and live-action TV movies, and 2008 saw the theatrical release of the first of three live-action Japanese films based on NAOKI URASAWA’S 20th CENTURY BOYS.

No stranger to accolades and awards, Urasawa is a three-time recipient of the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award, a two-time recipient of the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize, and has received the Kodansha Manga Award. Urasawa has also become involved in the world of academia, and in 2008 accepted a guest teaching post at Nagoya Zokei University, where he teaches courses in, of course, manga.

KOEI TECMO AMERICA RELEASES FIRST TRAILER FOR ATELIER SHALLIE: ALCHEMISTS OF THE DUSK SEA

December 8, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

KOEI TECMO America today released the first trailer for Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea telling the tale of the two Shallies as they begin their voyage to find a resolve for the people of their dying homeland. The trailer shows the alchemists trudging through both barren and beautiful lands, encountering foes in the new battle system and performing alchemy in the updated Synthesis system. Screenshots were also released, highlighting the Synthesis and Battle system, and various lands as they discover relics and additional event scenes. More information can be found at the newly launched website: www.koeitecmoamerica.com/shallie.

Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea closes the final chapter in the Atelier Dusk series and is the incarnation of features developed based on community feedback of the previous Dusk titles and new systems that combines ease of entry for newcomers, with the choice to advance gameplay for long-time fans. The battle system will incorporate strategy and speed, the time management system will be free from restrictions allowing for unlimited play time and Alchemy RPG fans can look forward to a straightforward menu in the engaging Synthesis system.

In Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea players choose to play as either the reserved, mission-focused Shallistera, daughter of a tribal leader who embarks on voyage to find a solution to a crisis affecting her homeland, on behalf of her ailing father or ambitious, energetic Shallotte, who has been struggling to bring success to the alchemy workshop since the passing of her father. While their personalities and appearance are drastically different, they both share the nickname “Shallie” and uncover the reasoning why along each of their journeys— the dual main character system has been improved with separate stories and multiple endings for Shallistera and Shallotte.

For the first time in the Atelier series, Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea will include a 360 degree camera, giving players more freedom as they explore a vast world map that has expanded greatly with many new environments that evolve based on how the player progresses. In the new Quest system players can either take on only assignments necessary to progress the game or earn more points engaging in additional, more challenging quests. Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea will available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system on March 10, 2015 for $49.99. This game has not yet been rated by the ESRB.

Music Box Films Presents THE GREEN PRINCE on VOD, DVD and Blu Jan 20th

December 8, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

MUSIC BOX FILMS HOME ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES

The Green Prince

THE HARROWING DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE SON OF A PALESTINIAN HAMAS LEADER WHO WAS RECRUITED AS A SPY FOR ISRAEL AND THE ISRAELI AGENT WHO RISKED IT ALL TO PROTECT HIM

Coming to VOD, Blu-ray and DVD on January 20, 2015

“Gripping…sustains the tension of a well-executed thriller.” – StephenHolden, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Intense and fascinating…takes unforeseen turns even the best of novelists would have trouble imagining.”
- Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES

FOUR STARS! “Terrific. As gripping as any high-concept Hollywood thriller.” – Xan Brooks, THE GUARDIAN

“A thrill-a-minute spy caper too strange to be real, though it is.” –Jordan Hoffman, NY DAILY NEWS

Chicago, IL (December 5, 2014) – The gripping portrait of THE GREEN PRINCE recounts the true story of the son of a Hamas leader who emerged as one of Israel’s prized informants, and the Israeli agent who risked his life and career to protect him. Set against the chaotic backdrop of recent events in the Middle East and served up in the style of a spy thriller by writer/director Nadav Schirman, THE GREEN PRINCE is a unique chronicle on the dangerous and unprecedented partnership that developed between sworn enemies.

Growing up in Palestine as the son of a founder and leader of the Hamas, Mosab Hassan Yousef’s fervor against Israel was unquestionable, ultimately landing him in an Israeli prison. As the gruesome brutality heightened within the prison’s walls, Mosab had an unexpected change of heart and began to see Hamas as more of a problem than a solution. Recruited by the Shin Bet (Israel’s internal security agency) and given the code name “GreenPrince,” Mosab spied on the Hamas elite for more than a decade from 1997 to 2007, risking exposure and certain death while grappling with the perception that he had betrayed his own family and people. Along the way, what started as a cautious alliance between Mosab and his Shin Bet handler Gonen Ben Yitzhak grew into an enduring loyalty that no one could’ve ever predicted.

Through exclusive first-hand testimony, dramatic action sequences and rare archival footage, decades of secrets come to light in THE GREEN PRINCE, unveiling a world of terror, betrayal, and impossible choices.

Produced by the Academy Award-winning team behind such leading documentaries as Man on Wire, Searching for Sugar Man and One Day in September, THE GREEN PRINCE is based on Mosab Hassan Yousef’s 2010 bestselling memoir Son of Hamas. Accordingly, the film was shot in fascinating international locations such as Ramallah, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Kfar Kassem, Munich, Frankfurt and Los Angeles, further enhancing its undeniably Hollywood-styled thriller texture.

Music Box Films HomeEntertainment will release THE GREEN PRINCE on VOD, Blu-ray and DVD for the first time on January 20, 2015 (prebook December 16, 2014). Rolling out to the U.S.’stop theatrical markets this fall, THE GREEN PRINCE arrives on disc with a host of bonus features including a documentary television special featuring “The Green Prince” and director Nadav Schirman. The Blu-ray and DVD carry the suggested retail price of $34.95 and $29.95, respectively.

An official selection at the London, São Paulo, Zurich, Stockholm and New Zealand Film Festivals, THE GREEN PRINCE won the Audience Award for Best Documentary, World Cinema at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. THE GREEN PRINCE also bought home the Audience Award prize at the 2014 Moscow International Film Festival, as well as the prize for Best Editing at the 2014 Docaviv Awards in Israel.

An unflinching exploration of espionage, spiritual transformation and the transcendent bonds of friendship through the prism of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, THE GREEN PRINCE demands to be seen.
