    Updated: 14 hr ago

    MIAMI (AP) — Marc Anthony's latest Spanish-language album "3.0" is a hit, and his single "Vivir mi vida" topped the charts for 18 weeks. But Anthony isn't satisfied. He wants to reconquer a broader market with a new project in English. Anthony announced at the 25th Billboard Latin Music Conference in Miami on Wednesday that he is working on a pop album.

  • Bronze statue of Roger Ebert unveiled at Ebertfest

    Updated: 15 hr ago

    CHICAGO (AP) — Roger Ebert's final blog posting last April ended with his hopeful sign-off: "I'll see you at the movies." The award-winning film critic died two days later. Visitors to the central Illinois theater that hosts the annual "Ebertfest" film festival he started now may feel like they saw him at the movies. A life-sized bronze statue of the longtime Chicago Sun-Times critic was unveiled Thursday outside the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, which is next to Urbana where Ebert grew up. His wife, Chaz Ebert, described the statue as "interactive art," because it shows her late husband giving his famous "thumbs up" sign and sitting between two empty theater seats where visitors can sit.

  • Russia Moves to Ban Swearing in Movies

    Published: Thu, Apr 24, 2014

    The Russian parliament's lower house has passed a bill that bans swearing from films, music and other works of art, according to BBC News. The measure would impose fines for swearing in films, plays, concerts and shows, the Itar-Tass news agency reports. In addition, members of the public could face penalties of up to 2,500 roubles (£42; $70) for swearing in public and officials would have to pay double. The bill says a panel of experts will decide exactly what counts as a swear word. If the measure is approved by the upper house, it will be signed into law by President Vladimir Putin and take effect on 1 July 2014, BBC News reports.
