  • 'Lord of the Rings' TV Series in the Works at Amazon!

They would be producing a multi-season series exploring new storylines based on J.R.R Tolkien's novels.

A little over a decade later, when Jackson returned to direct The Hobbit trilogy, the combined cost before any promotion or advertising was $675 million.

Year Old Beats Face ID on Mom's iPhone X
Face ID uses artificial intelligence to distinguish real faces from images, videos or masks, but it "learns" a face over time. However, recently a Vietnamese security firm said that it successfully managed to thwart the Face ID using a mask.

In addition, Amazon now knows that there is a market for a high-end, sword and sorcery TV series because of the success of Game of Thrones (and what that series did for and continues to do for HBO). It also has the rights to create a spin-off series (I sincerely hope it's an adaptation of the Tale of Beren and Luthien, because I'd watch that yesterday).

Amazon has acquired the USA and global rights to develop, produce, and air a television show based on J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings novel.

Thanks To A Backdoor, Hackers May Get Root Access To OnePlus Phones
If it's there, anyone with physical access to your device can exploit EngineerMode to gain root access on your smartphone. Following the allegations, OnePlus took some steps, and added the new "opt-in" option for the user experience program.

The show, which will be available exclusively on Amazon's Prime Video, will be produced by Amazon Studios, in cooperations with Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line Cinema, a division of Warner Bros. On one hand, they are lovely pieces of digital artwork that do a very good job of showcasing the material. Everybody wants a big hit and certainly that's the show of the moment in terms of being a model for a hit. Even though there have been two trilogies, which each film lasting at least two hours, people seem to still be hungry for the universe that author J. Tolkien crafted a detailed history of Middle-earth called The Simarillion, which covered the creation of the world, epic wars, intrigue, the downfall of entire societies, dwarf and elvish history, and much more. But while the 2.09 million viewers who tuned in to the recent Season 3 premiere of that show constituted a banner night for Starz, those ratings pale in comparison to the 16.5 million viewers who tuned in to the Season 7 Game of Thrones finale just a few weeks before.

It's a major deal securing one of the biggest brands in pop culture for what's likely to be one of the most expensive TV shows ever made.
