  • Woody Allen back in spotlight, promoting new film

    Updated: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    Throughout his long career, Woody Allen has been fascinated by magic, a theme he's explored frequently onscreen: playing a magician in "Scoop," sending Owen Wilson on time travel in "Midnight in Paris," or pulling Jeff Daniels out of a movie screen in "The Purple Rose of Cairo." And though one might think, with the wave of terrible publicity he went through earlier this year, that a bit of magician-like escape into a bygone era or a movie screen is just what he might prefer, Allen is doing anything but disappear. He's not only making movies on the same famously ambitious, one-per-year schedule he's adhered to for almost half a century.

  • Duran Duran Sues Duran Duran Fan Club

    Published: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    Duran Duran, the ’80s pop group known best for the hit song “Hungry Like the Wolf,” is suing their Glenview-based fan club after it allegedly breached its contract by not giving the band its promised revenue, according to The Chicago Sun-Times. The lawsuit, filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court, alleges that Worldwide Fan Clubs, Inc. entered into a contract with Duran Duran in 2010 that stipulated the company would create and manage a fan club for the band. The fan club was also to warehouse and sell band merchandise, maintain accurate fan club records, collect membership fees, keep accurate accounting and give Duran Duran 75 percent of all profits, the suit said. Worldwide Fan Clubs would keep the other 25 percent, The Sun-Times reports.

  • Fans start lining up as Comic-Con floor opens

    Updated: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    Comic-Con is all about bringing fans close to the artists and properties they love — after navigating crowds and waiting in line. The lineups began as soon as the San Diego Convention Center opened its doors. Fans with four-day passes to the sold-out pop-culture spectacular gained early admission to the showroom floor Wednesday night, where they were the first to see a 10-foot-tall Transformer, a Lego Spider-Man and a life-sized, road-ready Hot Wheels car inspired by Darth Vader. Some planned to wait in line overnight for a chance to attend the most popular film and TV presentations, which begin Thursday. But first, they queued up inside the convention center to buy limited-edition toys released just for the festival.

  • Baldwin, LaBeouf share a role _ defendant_ in NYC

    Updated: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    NEW YORK (AP) — Alec Baldwin and Shia LaBeouf never ended up sharing a Broadway stage as planned last year, but real-life dramatics landed both of them Thursday in a distinctly less celebrated venue: Manhattan criminal courts. Both stars appeared in courtrooms a few blocks apart for separate disorderly conduct cases. LaBeouf is charged with disrupting a Broadway performance, while Baldwin was accused of getting belligerent with police who said they stopped him for riding a bicycle the wrong way down a one-way street. Their shared court date was just a coincidence, but it paired stars who have become known for acting up, not just for acting.

  • Jon Bon Jovi to be honored for humanitarian work

    Updated: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Rock star Jon Bon Jovi will be honored with an award named for an opera singer.

Bon Jovi will accept the $25,000 award on Nov. 18 at the city's Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Anderson was a celebrated contralto and Philadelphia native who in 1955 became the first black soloist at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. She died in 1993 at age 96.

  • Fox won't air men's retry of failed Knievel jump

    Updated: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Fox Broadcasting officials say they will not televise two daredevils' efforts to jump southern Idaho's Snake River Canyon where Evel Knievel failed 40 years ago. A spokeswoman told The Times-News (http://bit.ly/1lzPN5v) Wednesday that the television network opted out because of budget concerns because there wasn't enough production time. Texas motorcycle daredevil "Big Ed" Beckley and Hollywood stuntman Eddie Braun say they will push forward with the jumps and seek out other media partners. Forty years ago, Knievel also failed to secure a television broadcast contract. The famous stuntman's jump ended after his parachute malfunctioned and deployed shortly after takeoff. Braun's jump is s

  • London critics fall for 'Shakespeare in Love'

    Updated: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    LONDON (AP) — A hit. A very palpable hit. So says a character in the new West End production "Shakespeare in Love," quoting "Hamlet." And so say most London critics about the stage version of the Tudor-set rom-com that charmed its way to seven Academy Awards in 1998. On Thursday critics showered the play with accolades that will make producers' ad campaign a dream. The Evening Standard's Henry Hitchings praised the play's "fizzy, infectious exuberance," while the Daily Telegraph's Charles Spencer said it "generates a glow you could warm your hands by." Paul Taylor in The Independent topped them all: "It makes you feel grateful to be alive.
