|APPLE is teaming up with award-winning director Steven Spielberg for its first major push into TV programming.
The iPhone maker is bringing back Spielberg’s 30-year-old anthology series “Amazing Stories” in its attempt to build an online video subscription service to challenge the digital networks operated by Netflix Eric Hosmer Jersey , Amazon, Hulu and HBO.
“We love being at the forefront of Apple’s investment in scripted programming, and can’t think of a better property than Spielberg’s beloved ‘Amazing Stories’ franchise,” NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in a statement yesterday. NBC Entertainment works with Spielberg’s Amblin Television on the series.
Apple declined to comment on the deal. The Wall Street Journal first reported Apple had secured the “Amazing Stories” rights.
The series aired on NBC from 1985 to 1987 and won five Emmy awards for its mixture of science fiction and horror episodes, although the series was never a big hit in the ratings.
It marked a return to TV for Spielberg Danny Duffy Jersey , who first made a name for himself directing the ABC film “Duel” in 1971 before moving on to the movie theaters. His films include box-office blockbusters such as “Jaws,” “E.T.,” “Jurassic Park,” the “Indiana Jones” franchise and critically acclaimed pictures such as “Saving Private Ryan,” “Lincoln” and “Schindler’s List Brandon Moss Jersey ,” for which he won an Academy Award for best director.
Apple is planning to spend US$1 billion on original programming during the next year.
THE People’s Bank of China warned yesterday that it will close Bitcoin exchanges which breach rules on money laundering and foreign exchange.
The PBOC met with executives from nine Bitcoin exchanges, including Huobi, OkCoin, BTCC and HaoBTC, in Beijing on Wednesday and ordered them to operate according to the law.
“Trading platforms should not participate in unauthorized financing business Bo Jackson Jersey , money laundering, or violate regulations on foreign exchange, tax and business,” the PBOC said in a statement on its official website. Platforms that breach the rules will be investigated and shut down, it warned.
In response Alex Gordon Jersey , OkCoin and Huobi said they’ve halted Bitcoin trading and it will not resume until completing an system upgrade to prevent money laundering.
Huobi also said it will “block accounts that are suspected of illegal practices.”
HaoBTC said a trading curb will start from 2pm today limiting investors to trade no more than 5 Bitcoin within 48 hours. It will also raise the trading fee to 0.4 percent per transaction from 0.2 percent.
“Investors should always remember that Bitcoin lost more than 75 percent of its value in 2013,” said Zhang Yufang, an investment adviser with Shanghai Shangding Investment Consultancy. “We do not recommend it as a long-term investment tool, particularly because of compliance concerns.”
The price of the virtual currency was little changed around 7,500 yuan (US$1 Alcides Escobar Jersey ,093) after the PBOC statement was released, according to the CoinDesk’s Bitcoin price index.
The price rebounded from a low of 5,555 yuan in January after the central bank launched checks into BTCC, Huobi and OkCoin as the soaring Bitcoin prices stoked jitters that the exchanges may have been used as a channel to move capital offshore.
Market insiders from HaoBTC said the Bitcoin price rebound during the weeklong Chinese New Year holiday was mainly powered by speculators who flocked to the Bitcoin market in a bid to gain from the virtual currency’s fast rise.

Assassin's Creed, the action adventure adapted from popular video game franchise of the same name Kansas City Royals Hats , is pinning its last hopes on China, the world's second largest film market and one that especially favors Hollywood action blockbusters. In late 2016, the film seriously underperformed when it was released in North America and other countries and regions outside of China during the Christmas season. The film only pulled in $54.53 million in the US and $157.9 million internationally, far below what it needs to break even on its $125 million budget plus marketing costs.
With the film expected to release on Friday in the Chinese mainland, the producers behind Assassin's Creed held a press conference in Beijing on Monday. The film's lead actor and producer Michael Fassbender made an appearance to help increase hype among Chinese video game fans and filmgoers.
Despite the poor reviews overseas (3.910 on review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes) Kansas City Royals T-Shirts , the anticipation among audiences in China for Assassin's Creed is high. The film currently has high anticipation ratings on several popular Chinese websites - 7.110 on Mtime, 7.310 on Maoyan and 7.510 on Sina Weibo.
"I have been looking forward to it for a long time," Elena, 27, told the Global Times Kansas City Royals Hoodie , adding that even though she was aware of the negative reviews from overseas "as a fan of the Assassin's Creed games, I will watch it no matter what."
Support from fans is what many of today's video game and comic book inspired films count on. Even when a film is received poorly among general filmgoers, fans are often willing to pay for tickets just to see their favorite characters come to life on the big screen.
Warcraft (2016) is the perfect example. With an average rating of 4.210 on Rotten Tomatoes, the film made only $47.37 million in the US. Yet, overseas it brought in $386.31 million Customized Kansas City Royals Jerseys , of which the Chinese mainland, where the video game Warcraft is hugely popular, contributed $213.98 million - more than 55 percent of the total of overseas earnings.
The fan power of Chinese video game players astonished the world, and therein lies the hope for the Assass.
