    HBO in Spain has aired, apparently by mistake, the sixth episode of Games of Thrones' seventh season a week ahead of schedule. The episode was available to Spanish subscribers early Tuesday for about an hour before being removed. The 71-minute episode is due to be officially available Aug. 21. News of the incident was immediately reported on social media and copies of the episode were reportedly available online later. Comment from the company's office in Spain wasn't immediately available Wednesday. HBO has been the victim of hacking in recent weeks in the United States. In India, episode four of Game of Thrones was recently leaked, leading to the arrest of four suspects.

  • Noel Gallagher will headline a concert in honor of victims of the Manchester Arena bombing, as the venue reopens next month for the first time since the deadly attack. The former Oasis frontman's band High Flying Birds will be joined by The Courteeners, Blossoms and Rick Astley at the Sept. 9 We Are Manchester show. The lineup also includes poet Tony Walsh, known as Longfella, whose poem 'This is the Place' has become a defiant symbol of the city. Twenty-two people died and more than 200 were injured when a suicide bomber detonated a backpack full of explosives after an Ariana Grande concert on May 22. Sue Murphy, deputy leader of Manchester City Council, said Wednesday that the venue's reopening was a symbol of the city's 'defiant and resilient spirit.
  • Alice Isn't Dead' is taking on new lives. Harper Perennial and Universal Cable Productions told The Associated Press on Wednesday that a novel and television program are in the works for the popular podcast about a truck driver searching for her missing wife. The book will be written by the show's creator, Joseph Fink, who also helped write and create the 'Welcome to Night Vale' podcast. Fink will be executive producer for the TV adaptation, which Universal Cable Productions is developing for USA Network. The novel, billed by Harper Perennial as a 'fast-paced thriller,' is scheduled for fall 2018. No date has been set for the TV production. 'Alice Isn't Dead' first aired in 2016. It features Jasika Nicole as the voice of the narrator.
  • Taiwanese singer and actress Rainie Yang stars in 'The Tag Along 2,' a sequel to the 2015 hit that's loosely based on a ghostly urban legend in Taiwan about a little girl who appears in the footage of a family's hiking trip. The only problem was, she wasn't part of the family and no one seemed to recall seeing a young girl on the mountain that day. The actual footage of the mysterious 'little girl in red' was broadcast on Taiwanese television in the 1990s. Some believed that she was roaming the mountains looking for her next victim. 'The little girl in red was photographed really clearly,' Yang said in an interview with The Associated Press. 'People have been talking about it for the last 20 years. It happened when I was very little but I still remember it well. So it definitely had a far reach.' In the sequel, Yang plays a social worker whose daughter goes missing in the mountains. She joins the search and rescue team and while looking for her lost daughter gets haunted by the little girl in red. 'From there she discovered the obsession of the little girl in red,' Yang said. 'Everyone has their obsession, whether you're human or a ghost and when you have an obsession, you can't let it go. That's why you keep hanging around, and can't get over it. So because she stumbled across all this, the story began.' It is customary in Asia to hold a blessing ceremony before filming commences for horror movies to keep the cast and crew from harm's way. Yang said that the sequel included a blessing ceremony before shooting every scene. She found out later that quite a few 'coincidences' happened while filming the first movie — which prompted director Cheng Wei-hao to take extra precautions while making the second. 'When they were shooting the first film, a lot of the men (crew members) will relieve themselves wherever it's convenient. Sometimes they're not being thoughtful about it, and no joke, the next day, they will get a fever. They will get sick the next day.' 'So they feel like they had to believe ... You can't go to toilet wherever you want. They realized that they needed to pay attention to that. So, to avoid people getting sick during the filming of the sequel, and because it's very inconvenient to find a toilet (in wilderness), and also they didn't want the crew to get sick to delay filming, that's why at every set, there is a toilet just for our cast and crew,' Yang said. The star of the first movie, Tiffany Hsu, returns in the sequel. This time, Hsu's character takes a darker turn and is on the brink of a breakdown. Yang, who is friends with Hsu in real life, said that the challenges for both of them were to put aside their friendship and act like complete strangers when the cameras were rolling. 'We've known each other for about 18 years,' Yang said. 'We have such great chemistry but there was no use for it in this movie, because her character lives in her world, and I'm focused on mine, so they didn't have much interaction. For us, our challenges lie in pretending we're strangers,' Yang said. 'The Tag-Along 2' hits theaters in Taiwan on Aug. 25.

  • An India-based media technology company said Wednesday that it regrets the recent leak of an episode of the popular HBO series 'Game of Thrones' by four of its current and former employees. Indian police have detained the four suspects, but said their motive for leaking the episode titled 'The Spoils of War' was unclear. The fourth episode in the television series' seventh season leaked three days before its planned Aug. 6 air date and quickly circulated online. Though not related to the hack of HBO computer systems just days earlier, the episode leak compounded problems for the network in trying to keep information from the fantasy show under wraps. Prime Focus Technologies, a subsidiary of the global entertainment services company Prime Focus, said in a statement Wednesday that the leak 'was not a system hack, but an illegal breach of obligations by the concerned persons despite PFT's continual internal emphasis on protocols of content security and ethical practices.' Police are investigating possible charges against the four suspects, including criminal breach of trust and violation of India's information technology act.

  • Daniel Craig has delayed the specter of retirement as 007. The British actor has confirmed, as widely expected, that he'll play James Bond in the franchise's 25th film due out in November 2019. The 49-year old actor told Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night's 'Late Show' that it will likely be his last time playing 007, and that he hopes to 'go out on a high note.' Craig has played Bond four times — 'Casino Royale,' ''Quantum Of Solace,' ''Skyfall' and 'Spectre.' He had previously suggested he wasn't at all that interested being Bond again, saying in 2015 he would rather slash his wrists. He told Colbert he 'couldn't be happier' to reprise the role.
