LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 Not all reboots are created equal.

This weekend at the box office, nostalgia-driven fare was everywhere, from \"Beauty and the Beast\" to \"Power Rangers\" and \"CHIPS,\" producing both successful and underwhelming results.

On the high end, Disney's live-action \"Beauty and the Beast\" continued enchanting audiences in its second weekend in theaters, easily topping the charts with $88.3 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. On the low end, Warner Bros.' raunchy, R-rated \"CHIPS\" debuted in seventh place with $7.6 million.

In the middle was Lionsgate's \"Power Rangers,\" which earned a solid $40.5 million to grab the No. 2 spot. The PG-13 take on the campy 1990s television show tells the origin story of the Power Rangers with a diverse teenage cast of relative newcomers.

Its audiences were 60 percent male, while \"Beauty and the Beast\" crowds remained largely female. The divide allowed both to succeed in the crowded marketplace.

\"Power Rangers\" didn't get the best reviews, but audiences gave it a promising A CinemaScore, suggesting that it might have staying power in the coming weeks.

\"CHIPS,\" on the other hand, underwhelmed audiences, critics and the studio. Dax Shepard wrote, directed and starred in the action comedy based on the 1970s and '80s TV show about the California Highway Patrol.

Costing $25 million to produce, \"CHIPS\" wasn't the biggest risk, but its $7.6 million debut disappointed. The film also got a deathly B- CinemaScore from audiences.

\"Brand recognition will get you far \u2014 it gives you a leg up before you even start \u2014 but at the end of the day, it comes down to the movie itself,\" said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. \"No matter how much brand equity they have with a particular title, the real test is: How do critics and audiences respond to that film?

\"You still have to deliver a solid movie that will entice people to spend their hard-earned money to go see something that they already know, or already know about,\" he said.

That's where Disney has succeeded, with its latest remake earning $317 million in just 10 days in North American theaters.

\"With 'Beauty and the Beast' there have been decades of goodwill and the Disney brand and so many more elements going into it than just the intellectual property,\" Dergarabedian said. \"Disney makes it look easy. Others have had more challenges.\"

Also this weekend, the sci-fi thriller \"Life\" failed to connect with audiences, debuting in fourth place with $12.6 million behind holdover \"Kong: Skull Island\" with $14.4 million.

The R-rated space film stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds as astronauts who discover that the alien life form they have brought on board might be dangerous. With a $58 million price tag, Sony and Skydance's \"Life\" has a long journey to profitability.

Dergarabedian said that part of the reason for its muted launch might be that recent space films, such as \"Passengers\" and \"Arrival,\" are available for home viewing. The much-anticipated \"Alien: Covenant\" and \"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2\" also are on the horizon.

Despite some flops, the March 2017 box office, which crossed $1 billion this weekend, has become the biggest March of all time, with help from the strength of \"Logan,\" ''Kong: Skull Island,\" ''Get Out\" and \"Beauty and the Beast.\"

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

1.\"Beauty and the Beast,\" $88.3 million.

2.\"Power Rangers,\" $40.5 million.

3.\"Kong: Skull Island,\" $14.4 million.

4.\"Life,\" $12.6 million.

5.\"Logan,\" $10.1 million.

6.\"Get Out,\" $8.7 million.

7.\"CHIPS,\" $7.6 million.

8.\"The Shack,\"$3.8 million.

9.\"The Lego Batman Movie,\" $2 million.

10.\"The Belko Experiment,\" $1.8 million.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Over his career, former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson recorded 50 wins and six losses. But he recently notched another big loss in Latin America \u2014 this time as a coach of a bird.

Tyson traveled to Suriname as part of the new Fusion TV documentary series \"Outpost \" and was soundly beaten when he entered a bird in a songbird contest, a cherished local tradition.

Cameras captured Iron Mike as he learned about the contest, located a bird to enter \u2014 he dubbed the tiny guy \"Little Mike\" \u2014 but then suffered a TKO when a competing champion cheeped and peeped more than his bird did in the same 15-minute period.

\"Little Mike let us down, man. I was in his corner, though,\" said Tyson by phone from Las Vegas. \"It was just amazing meeting the people, meeting the culture \u2014 I had a great time.\"

The series, kicking off on Sunday with Tyson's episode, mixes travel adventure, history and journalism to shine a light on global stories. The first season focuses on Latin America and includes as hosts \"The Late Show with Stephen Colbert\" bandleader Jon Batiste, \"Brain Games\" star Jason Silva, and transgender model Carmen Carrera. Spanish versions air on UniMas.

Tyson was lured onto the show by the chance to visit a country he'd never heard of and his love of birds. The former boxer has loved pigeons and raced them since he was a kid in Brooklyn. (Sunday's show recorded the moment Tyson lovingly released the bird in Suriname he competed with.)

\"My wife always says, 'The reason I keep my pigeons is they connect me to my childhood,'\" Tyson said. \"Once it's in your blood, it never leaves. It's just who you are.\"

Back home, Tyson is watching his former profession lose out to professional mixed martial arts but thinks he may have the answer to put the \"sweet science\" back on top: A compelling boxer somehow unifies the heavyweight title.

\"We haven't had a really good, exciting heavyweight champion in a long time,\" he said.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Mattel is looking to the movies. The maker of Barbie and Hot Wheels, which has live-action films based on those toys in the works, says it wants to find new ways to be on more screens in front of more kids. These days, that takes more than a 30-second commercial.

Big-screen movies are a first for 72-year-old Mattel, which has mostly relied on television ads, apps and straight-to-DVD movies to promote its toys. It launched a separate unit last year to help produce films, TV shows and other content with studio partners. The Barbie movie hit a snag last week when comedian Amy Schumer dropped out of the starring role citing scheduling conflicts. The film is being made with Sony and it's expected to be released next year. A Hot Wheels film is also in development.

Mattel will also be on TV starting April 7 on ABC, showing its search for the next big toy idea in a competition show called \"The Toy Box.\" Chief Operating Officer Richard Dickson says Mattel is making the winning toy now, and it will go on sale at Toys R Us stores after the series ends May 19.

Other changes Mattel has made include new body shapes, hair types and skin colors for Barbie, and the American Girl brand's first boy doll .

Dickson spoke recently with The Associated Press about how Mattel is trying to bring new life to its classic toys. Questions and answers have been edited for clarity and length.

Q: Why the focus on movies and TV shows?

A: Kids today can obviously skip commercials. And screen time today is not one screen, it's multiple screens. Our objective is to be everywhere our consumers are. They are on their phone. They are on their laptop. They're on their iPad. They're on their television. There is no center.

Q: What's the Barbie movie about?

A: I can't get into a lot of detail as to what the story will be, but I can tell you what it is. It is live action. It is going to be a story that continues to celebrate the idea that girls can be anything. I think the way that we narrate that story will be entertaining for girls of all ages. And I also think it will be, hopefully, appealing to some boys also.

Q. With Amy Schumer out of the Barbie movie, is there a search for someone else? What are you looking for? Another comedian?

A: We have a list of people who are interesting and interested. We look forward to working with Sony to bring the vision of the character and the story to life.

Q: Why the changes to Barbie's body shape last year?

A: Historically, we never addressed the cultural pushback that we always had with people criticizing Barbie's body. And we sort of justified it by saying it's a toy and it's not a real human and we sort of moved on. And one of the things that we've done, to reintroduce the brand as relevant, is to listen to the consumer and start to have a dialogue with her instead of a monologue.

Q: In 2015, a Barbie ad featured a boy for the first time. Why the attention to boys?

A: We know for a fact that a lot of boys play with Barbie and it hasn't been something that we've acknowledged. In many cases it is a boy playing out a Barbie world with his sister. And then there are boys who actually drive the play themselves. We are pretty pronounced with boys, we just never really expressed it in marketing.

MADRID (AP) \u2014 Spanish film star Antonio Banderas says he has recovered from a heart attack that he had in January.

The 56-year-old Banderas tells Spanish media that \"I suffered a heart attack on Jan. 26, but it wasn't serious and hasn't caused any damage.\"

Banderas says he underwent a procedure to place three stents in his arteries, adding that \"it hasn't been as dramatic as some have written.\"

Banderas' visit to a Swiss clinic had led to speculation about the health of the star known for roles in such films as \"The Mask of Zorro,\" ''Desperado,\" ''Philadelphia\" and the animated \"Puss in Boots.\"

Banderas spoke Saturday at a film festival in his hometown of Malaga in southern Spain, where he received a lifetime achievement award for his career as an actor, director and producer.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Should the \"Fearless Girl\" stand up to Wall Street's charging bull forever?

That's the question New York City officials are facing after a statue of a ponytailed girl in a windblown dress went up in front of the bronze bull early this month and immediately became a tourist draw and internet sensation.

What was intended as a temporary display to encourage corporations to put more women on their boards is now getting a second look in light of its popularity, which has spawned an online petition seeking to keep it.

But does keeping the girl past her scheduled April 2 deadline forever alter the meaning of the bull? After all, the 11-foot-tall, 7,100-pound bull has been hugely popular in its own right; it was placed in a lower Manhattan traffic median in the wake of the 1987 stock market crash as a symbol of Americans' financial resilience and can-do spirit.

Some fans of the bronze girl already see the bull much differently.

\"The bull represents men and power,\" says Cristina Pogorevici, 18, a student from Bucharest, Romania, who visited the statues this past week. \"So she is a message of women's power and things that are changing in the world right now.\"

Holli Sargeant, 20, a visitor from Queensland, Australia, says the 4-foot-tall, 250-pound bronze girl \"is standing up against something and we see her as powerful image. She represents all the young women in the world that want to make a difference.\"

Such shifting perceptions of the bull \u2014 from American hero to villain of sorts \u2014 outrage bull sculptor Arturo De Modica, who wants the girl gone.

He dismissed Kristen Visbal's statue as nothing more than an \"an advertising trick,\" noting the bronze was a marketing effort on the eve of the March 8 International Women's Day by Boston-based State Street Global Advisors and its New York advertising firm, McCann.

As for his bull, \"I put it there for art,\" the Italian-born sculptor told MarketWatch, which first reported his anger. \"My bull is a symbol for America. My bull is a symbol of prosperity and for strength.\"

The girl's sculptor has no hostile feelings toward the bull.

\"I love Charging Bull!\" Visbal told The Associated Press on Sunday, speaking from her home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. \"But women are here, and we're here to stay.\"

She was commissioned to create a 36-inch-tall girl with hands on hips and chin up. \"Then we thought, this is a really big bull and we should increase the height to 50 inches,\" she said. \"But I made sure to keep her features soft; she's not defiant, she's brave, proud and strong, not belligerent.\"

The sculptor based her work on two Delaware children \u2014 a friend's daughter she said had \"great style and a great stance, and I told her to pretend she was facing a bull.\" The second was a \"beautiful Latina girl, so everyone could relate to the Fearless Girl.\"

Visbal, who was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, while her American father was in the foreign service, is to be honored Monday along with State Street on the steps of New York's City Hall by a group of prominent bipartisan women who are asking that the statue be made permanent.

A spokesman for New York City, which controls public art in the area, did not say when a decision would be made. Mayor Bill de Blasio has said only that he would try to prolong the girl's presence.

David Levi Strauss of Manhattan's School of Visual Arts, known for his writings about the impact of art on society and politics, says he is excited by the dynamics the girl statue has brought to the space and agrees the overall meaning has shifted.

\"The girl has changed the meaning of the bull forever,\" he says. \"With public art like this, you never know what's going to happen; it's a Rorschach test onto which people are projecting their own opinions and feelings.\"

A similar point-counterpoint was played out at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, erected in 1982 in Washington, with three soldiers in bronze added two years later, seemingly interacting with the stark marble wall bearing the names of the dead. The result prompted debate; some said the soldiers infused life onto the wall, while protesters blasted the statue as a tasteless intrusion.

When it comes to the girl facing the bull, Strauss said, \"the bull's stature diminishes. She's the individual standing up to the beast of power. ... She's frozen in a sort of dream of winning, and that's what appeals to people. She's irresistible.\"

MILAN (AP) \u2014 Italian conductor Arturo Toscanini's legacies included abolishing encores at La Scala. So it was a playful touch when one of the maestro's musical heirs included a Verdi encore during a tribute at the Milan opera house marking the 150th anniversary of Toscanini's birth.

The Saturday night concert was part of a series of celebrations and commemorations planned across Italy to honor one of the 20th century's most enduring conductors, a man who defied Fascist leader Benito Mussolini, brought discipline and decorum to La Scala and popularized symphonic orchestral music in the United States.

Unlike composers whose works can be played and reinterpreted over time, the contribution of conductors \"is written in water in a certain sense,\" said Harvey Sachs, a Toscanini biographer who helped curate an exhibit on the conductor at La Scala's museum that runs through June 4.

But Toscanini's fame has endured due to the musical rigor he imposed on orchestras and the fact that he was one of the first major conductors whose work was both recorded and broadcast live, Sachs said.

During his lifetime, Toscanini enjoyed renown around the world but particularly in his native Italy, where his focus was opera, and in the United States, the second home where he devoted his career to broadcasting symphonic music.

\"In 1935, Time magazine published a statistic that 9 million Americans listened to his broadcast of the New York Philharmonic each week,\" Sachs said. \"That was 7 percent of the population of the United States, adults and children, at that time. That would be like 22 million people tuning into a broadcast of symphonic music. It is almost unthinkable today.\"

He worked at La Scala both as principal conductor, for a decade from 1898, and musical director in the 1920s, and is credited with improving the discipline of musicians, expanding the repertoire and improving the behavior of unruly audience members.

It was Toscanini who installed an orchestra pit to help balance the sound of the musicians with the opera singers. He also had the lights turned down during performances and demanded silence from the audience, etiquette that is now the norm but then was a revolution, according to Toscanini expert Franco Pulcini, who collaborated on the La Scala exhibit.

By 1929, he'd had enough of fighting with theater directors over the expensive staging of operas and decided to focus on symphonic work. He shifted his career to the United States, where he was conducting the New York Philharmonic Orchestra at the time and had previously conducted the Metropolitan Opera.

\"He realized that moving to the United States by conducting symphonic music, he had a much bigger audience for classical music,\" Pulcini said.

He went back and forth between Italy and the United States until his anti-Fascist political views \u2014 which included refusing to conduct the Fascist anthem \u2014 got him into trouble with Mussolini, and his passport was revoked.

In 1938, he went into self-exile in the U.S., where a year earlier he had taken the helm of the NBC Symphony Orchestra that was created for him. He continued there for 17 years.

His political views also led him to refuse in 1933 to return to the Bayreuth Festival dedicated to performances of operas by Richard Wagner, where he had been the first non-German conductor to appear.

Toscanini, who declined to attend because of the Wagner family's sympathies for Nazism, told Wagner's anti-fascist granddaughter, Friedelind, \"This is the greatest sorrow of my life.\"

In a nod to Toscanini's strong politics, Italian conductor Riccardo Chailly closed Saturday's tribute concert with Verdi's \"Hymn of Nations,\" which incorporates the Italian, French and British anthems and was seen at the time of its 1862 premier as presenting a view of European harmony.

The encore brought the audience, which included Italian President Sergio Mattarella and Culture Minister Dario Franceschini, to its feet.

The Toscanini anniversary tributes also included a sold-out concert in Bologna, the city where Toscanini was attacked by anti-Fascists in 1931, and with the opening of a new musical production center in Parma, the city of his birth.

Concerts by the La Scala Chamber orchestra are being performed this week in Washington and New York to coincide with the publication of the book \"Toscanini, The Maestro: A Life in Pictures.\"

LONDON (AP) \u2014 Former Girls Aloud star Cheryl and her partner Liam Payne of One Direction fame have announced the birth of their first child.

Cheryl said on Instagram Saturday night that their son was born Wednesday and has not been named.

Payne, who is now also a solo artist, said he was \"incredibly happy\" and posted a photo of himself with the baby.

Cheryl was known as Cheryl Cole when she was in Girls Aloud. She has also been a judge on the \"The X Factor,\" the show that Payne competed on before he was placed into One Direction.

Scarlett Johansson feels \"icky\" talking about the gender pay gap.

The 'Ghost in the Shell' star doesn't feel she can make any personal comments about the gender wage gap in Hollywood as she is the highest grossing actress in the industry.

She told The Observer newspaper: \"There's something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole.

\"I am very fortunate, I make a really good living, and I'm proud to be an actress who's making as much as many of my male peers at this stage. For me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It's part of a larger conversation about feminism in general.\"

Meanwhile, Scarlett previously admitted she is pleased to see more \"female energy\" on set as of late.

She said: \"We see more female directors, more women in various departments on set. If you looked around a film set even 10 years ago, it was basically a bunch of dudes; maybe in the wardrobe department or in the hair and makeup department there would be women.

\"Now you see more female camera assistants, cinematographers, grips. It's nice to have a diverse group of people so that it doesn't become so one-note - to have a female energy on set, to have different types of people and different vibes, and a more balanced creative environment.\"

And the blonde beauty - who shares two-year-old daughter Rose with her estranged husband Romain Dauriac - previously admitted she found it \"disappointing\" to be named the highest-grossing actress of all time as she was upset that no other women managed a place in the top 10.

She said: \"It's exciting to be the only woman in this category [but] it's kind of disappointing actually to be the only woman in this category. That was a little bit of a surprise to me.\"

Charlie Hunnam's latest movie was a \"love letter\" to his girlfriend.

The 36-year-old actor had promised to write to Morgana McNeils, his partner of 12 years, when he was filming scenes for 'Lost Cities of Z' in Colombia but was let down by the mail system and so he has dedicated his performance in the movie to her.

He said: \"We went to Colombia and the mail system doesn't really work very well. It's completely unreliable. I received a letter from her and I realised from the tone of it and things she was saying that she hadn't received the two letters I sent before.

\"I then just stopped writing to her altogether which obviously makes me sound like a total bastard. Appropriately so, but I was very apologetic.

\"I bought her an emerald when I returned home from Colombia, because it's the place of emeralds. But I think she was offended I brought that up because it felt \u00adreductive to her of that real sacrifice she had made for this, which was enormous.

\"I almost hate going to see films I've been in for the first time. But this was a different experience. I took my girlfriend with me, and she watched it and \u00adrecognised that it was both an apology, a recognition and a love letter to her. We were \u00admaking it for our loved ones.\"

And now filming is over, Charlie is keen to spend more time with Morgana.

He added to the Sunday Mirror newspaper: \"I was working on Sons of Anarchy for seven of the last nine years and between every season I'd do a film.

\"I was working 100 hours a week, 51 weeks a year for eight years straight. So if Morgana and I are going to start talking about children and getting married, I'm going to have to figure out a way to balance that a little bit more effectively.\"

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 Laughter, music and the tapping of dancing shoes reverberated throughout a public memorial to Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, which loved ones say is just how the actresses would have wanted it.

There were few tears throughout the two-hour ceremony Saturday, which honored the mother-daughter duo's impact on film, culture and those who knew them with a mix of photos, videos, and anecdotes that kept the audience laughing and applauding.

Todd Fisher led the ceremony, which he said was intended to bring fans an intimate view of his mother and sister. He called it a show, saying his mother hated to attend memorials.

Hundreds of fans \u2014 some wearing \"Star Wars\" attire \u2014 attended the public ceremony that featured numerous family photos and Reynolds' final interview reflecting on her life and philanthropy, and one of Fisher's high school friends sharing some her off-color emails to him.

A troupe from Reynolds' dance studio performed an homage to \"Singin' in the Rain,\" the film that catapulted Reynolds to stardom at age 19. After an opening film that was an ode to Fisher's \"Star Wars\" role, a working R2D2 unit came on stage, mournfully beeped and parked next to a director's chair with Fisher's name on it. Across the stage, near a piano, sat an empty chair with Reynolds' name on it.

Fisher, 60, an actress and writer who starred as Princess Leia in the original \"Star Wars\" trilogy, died Dec. 27 after suffering a medical emergency days earlier aboard a flight from London. Reynolds, an Oscar-nominated actress for her role in \"The Unsinkable Molly Brown,\" died the following day at age 84.

Todd Fisher recounted his mother's final moments and her remark that she wanted to be with her daughter.

\"It was a very peaceful exit that only my mother could have orchestrated,\" he said to booming laughter. \"She was trained in Hollywood where they teach you to make a great entrance, and exit.\"

Fisher and Reynolds had a complex relationship, with some years of estrangement before they reunited and became close confidantes.

Actor Dan Aykroyd described Fisher, his one-time fianc\u00e9e, as a chatterbox who never let him speak. He described using the Heimlich maneuver on her once, and joked that if he had been on the plane where Fisher fell ill in December, he \"might have been able to save her again.\"

He echoed a sentiment expressed by many early in his remarks. \"We really shouldn't be here this soon,\" he said.

The ceremony was attended by several stars, including Rene Russo, Beverly D'Angelo, \"Dallas\" actress Morgan Brittany, actor-director Fisher Stevens, \"Brady Bunch\" actress Susan Olsen and actor Griffin Dunne.

Dunne recounted living with Fisher in New York when they were both young actors, and her initial reactions to working on \"Star Wars.\" He recounted Fisher's assessment of the film: \"It's stupid and it's terrible.\"

After the first screening, they both knew she had been wrong. \"We knew movies would never be the same, and you just knew Carrie's life would never be the same.\"

When speakers weren't delivering one-liners \u2014 some that had been uttered or penned by Fisher and Reynolds \u2014 music and dance took over the stage. The ceremony featured a new song James Blunt wrote after Fisher's death, and the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles performed a somber rendition of Cyndi Lauper's \"True Colors\" that celebrated Fisher's status as a feminist icon.

Actress Ruta Lee celebrated Reynolds' philanthropy in her eulogy, which included her singing to troops during the Korean War and her later efforts raising millions to help those suffering from mental illness. Carrie Fisher battled mental illness and addiction, exploring her struggles in the book \"Postcards from the Edge.\"

Fisher discussed her mother's charitable work in a video clip, joking: \"She sort of started what this town was going to need quite a bit of, which was treatment for the mentally ill.\"

Lee said it was OK to feel sadness at the deaths of Reynolds and Fisher, but not to dwell on it. \"Debbie the unsinkable and her beautiful daughter would never want us to mourn,\" she said.

Author Gavin de Becker, who attended high school with Fisher and recounted how his infatuation with her turned into a lifelong friendship, said his friend \"zoomed through time\" and made so many people's lives better. He recounted how Fisher took him on international trips and \"gave me so many firsts.\"

\"The first time I had sex was at Carrie's house,\" de Becker said. \"It wasn't with Carrie, but she arranged it.\"

It was one of many tales about the actresses that drew boisterous laughter.

After the service, fans were invited to see the actresses' final resting place at Forest Lawn - Hollywood Hills, a storied cemetery where numerous celebrities, including Bette Davis and Liberace, are buried or interred.

Many also paused to snap photos with some of the actresses' memorabilia that was displayed outside the theater, including two dresses Fisher wore while filming \"Star Wars\" and \"When Harry Met Sally,\" and two of Reynolds' costumes from \"Singin' in the Rain\" and \"Unsinkable Molly Brown.\"

BOSTON (AP) \u2014 \"Saturday Night Live\" star Michael Che (CHAY) is not backing away from comments he made about Boston, when he called it the \"most racist city\" he has ever visited.

The Boston Globe (http://bit.ly/2n34WDF) reports that the co-anchor of \"Weekend Update\" told a Boston University crowd Thursday about how he received angry messages on social media after he made the comment on \"SNL\" the night before the Super Bowl.

He responded to one woman by urging her to \"talk to your closest black friend and ask them to explain it to you.\" He says the woman responded by answering, \"Touche.\"

Che, who often jokes about President Donald Trump on the NBC show, told the audience he never apologizes for language or controversial statements because he's \"just trying to be more presidential.\"

Kurt Russell feels the younger generation \"understands\" him more than his counterparts do.

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' star says actors and actresses a similar age to him didn't realise how much he broke the mould when he first started out in the industry but younger people appreciate that much more.

He said: \"I connected the dots to some of the things I've done in the past and it's fun to be living now in a time when a younger generation understands what I was doing. You guys get it. The older guys, my age, they don't know what the f**k I was doing. They really didn't. You can go back and read about it. It was like, 'What? What is that?' I think it's funny, whatever.

\"I just did it for a lifetime so to be at this point in my life and be able to not only kind of have a generation that accepts you for what you were doing before anyone else was with other people like you, to be able to take that and grow that, it's nice because it has a lot to do with my personality and the way I look at life and stuff. So it's a nicer time for me than it was 30 years ago.\"

And the 66-year-old actor believes his portrayal of Jack Burton in 'Big Trouble in Little China' has influenced all of his performances past and present.

He added to Collider.com: \"It informed why they wanted me to be here ... We do things, we get to work all day long and instead of the director going, 'Okay, now let's uh' ... I actually think that's the way to do it, I think that's actually funny, and also kind of pathetic and kind of real and blah, blah, blah' ...

\"Quentin Tarantino, John Carpenter, Ron Howard, Bob Zemeckis and Mike Nichols, there's those great guys, they always made me feel verified in the way I was going about things. And other things, especially when critics at the time look at the movie or not understand why something's cool or, 'That's funny! Don't you get that?' It's hard to keep your own, sometimes it was hard to keep my own course and be criticised for it ...

\"The way I created some guys in the past - you guys, people your age are more in tune with, you understood it. I mean, I sat there and listened to studio heads after watching my performance and go, 'I don't get it. He's not that good at what he does. The character's not really that good at what he does.' I have no animosity. It's not that. I guess sometimes it takes a while for it to be seen or something. I don't know. Feels good though. Feels nice to be here.\"

Zoe Saldana has a \"fear\" that 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' would flop.

The 38-year-old actress reprises her role as Gamora in the Marvel sequel but was concerned there was a huge risk involved in revisiting something that had been so successful.

She said: \"You would think we'd come back cocky and high-fiving.

\"'Guardians' felt to me like going to Vegas, you bet and you win. But the stakes are so much higher now.

\"There's a fear of losing that specialty, becoming cavalier and comfortable and ruining it. So everybody has been on point.\"

But her co-star Chris Pratt thinks director James Gunn has taken the right approach in making the new film radically different from the first.

He said: \"James wanted to go so outside of the box that he explodes the box.

\"It's a serious departure. And in a bigger, better, more explosive way. I really believe that.\"

Though the director confirmed the sequel is \"bigger and crazier\" than the first movie, he insists that wasn't his intention.

He told Empire magazine: \"The goal was to create something more honest.

\"It's deeper in a lot of ways. If the first film was about outsiders who fight their basic nature to become a family, this movie is about being a family.\"

And cast member Dave Bautista has promised there are some \"emotional\" moments in the movie because of the \"family\" theme.

He said: \"It's about family, about chosen family.

\"It's such a great topic, it hits a lot of emotional points.\"

Eric Bana \"always\" goes to the cinema the night before he starts shooting a new film to combat his nerves.

The 48-year-old actor gets \"very anxious\" before he starts filming a new production, and to help him calm down he spends the evening before he graces the set watching a new movie on the big screen, although it \"doesn't matter\" what movie he sits down to watch.

Speaking about his apprehension and how he deals with it to Empire magazine, the dark-haired hunk said: \"I get very nervous in pre-production. I have a thing where I always try to go to the cinema the night before my first day of filming.

\"I try to get my prep out of the way, and it doesn't matter what I see.\"

However, the Australian star believes he has started to cope with his constant worrying.

He added: \"I've gotten better at putting it aside and being able to turn up for work on day one. But I have gone to work on no sleep on day one.\"

But, the 'Hulk' star believes the overwhelming filming is \"really important\" for him, and he believes if he ever stops feeling nervous about a new project his career will be \"all over\".

He explained: \"I think that anxiety is really important. If you lose that feeling of not being able to sleep and questioning yourself, I think it's all over.

Meanwhile, Bana - who has 14-year-old daughter Sophia and 17-year-old son Klaus with his wife Rebecca Gleeson - avoids describing himself as a \"full-time actor\" and believes he would be \"lying\" if he used the term for himself because he doesn't work on series or soaps.

He said: \"Well, it's the truth. It's the God's honest truth. I'm not trying to be a smartarse about it. Full-time actors are people who work on series and soaps in television. I'm a guy who occasionally picks up a script and goes to work. If I called myself a full-time actor, I'd be lying.\"

'Love Actually' finally got its hotly-anticipated sequel on Friday evening (03.24.17).

The cast of the iconic Richard Curtis film - which was released in 2003 - reunited to raise money for Comic Relief as fans got a chance to see how things had turned out for their favourite characters.

The short film - which lasted around 12 minutes - started with Juliet, played by Keira Knightley, snuggling down on the sofa to watch television with her husband Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor). However, the pair are soon interrupted by an unlikely visitor on the doorstep - Mark (Andrew Lincoln).

Through a series of cue cards, Mark and Juliet catch up before he reveals that he stuck to his promise that he would marry a supermodel and has tied the knot with none other than Kate Moss.

And for Hugh Grant's character David, he was back in office, having been re-elected as Prime Minister.

Dancing along to Drake's Hotline Bling, David falls down the stairs and breaks his arm but is soon smiling again with his wife Natalie (Martine McCutcheon) by his side.

However, there was more good news for Jamie (Colin Firth) as his partner - with whom he already has three children - revealed she was expecting his fourth.

And Bill Nighy made his return, being interviewed on the radio as his character, rocker Billy Mack.

Elsewhere, Daniel (Liam Neeson) was reunited with his son Sam (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), who is 26 now, and Sam has reignited his romance with his first love, who has asked for his hand in marriage.

Meanwhile, David made a poignant speech to end the short sequel, where he insisted good would always win.

He said: \"Well, interesting obviously times have got harder and people are nervous and fearful. And it's not just in politics that things are tough, Usain Bolt has run his last Olympics, the Harry Potter films are finished, Piers Morgan is still alive. But let's look at the other side of the coin, Metallica's album is an absolute cracker and on a deeper level I'm optimistic wherever you see tragedy, you see bravery too. Wherever you see ordinary people in need, you see extraordinary people come to their aid.

\"Today is Red Nose Day and people who are giving their hard earned cash to people they'll never meet, who's pain and fear they'll never feel and want to fight. So it's not romantic love that is all around, most people still every day, everywhere have enough love in their hearts to help human beings in trouble. Good's going to win, I'm actually sure of it.\"

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 Actor Harrison Ford said he was distracted and concerned about turbulence from another aircraft last month when he mistakenly landed on a taxiway at a Southern California airport after flying low over an airliner with 116 people aboard, according to an audio recording released Friday.

\"I'm the schmuck who landed on the taxiway,\" Ford told an air traffic controller shortly after the near-miss on Feb. 13 at John Wayne Airport in Orange County. Recordings of Ford's conversations with air traffic controllers were released Friday by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The 74-year-old actor was told to land his single-engine plane on Runway 20L, but he instead landed on a parallel taxiway. An American Airlines flight was on the same taxiway, waiting to take off.

A video released last month showed Ford's Aviat Husky plane from behind as it descends toward the airfield where the American Airlines Boeing 737 is slowly taxiing.

\"Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?\" Ford asked the air traffic control tower as he landed in the wrong spot.

\"Oh. I landed on Taxiway Charlie. I understand now. Sorry for that,\" Ford said.

In a phone call with an air traffic controller after the incident, Ford said he \"got distracted by the airliner\" and also mentioned \"big turbulence\" from another plane that was landing.

The American Airlines flight, with 110 passengers and six crew members, departed safely for Dallas a few minutes later.

When an air traffic controller told the \"Star Wars\" and \"Indiana Jones\" star to take his time getting the number from his pilot's license, remarking it isn't a big deal, Ford responded: \"It's a big deal for me.\"

After Ford told the employee his name, the man seemed taken aback and assured Ford he won't share his phone number with anyone.

Landing on a taxiway, instead of a runway, is a violation of Federal Aviation Administration regulations. The agency's probe of the incident is still underway, spokesman Ian Gregor said Friday.

Ford's publicist did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday afternoon.

Ford, who collects vintage planes, has a long record as an aviator. He has had several close calls and a serious accident in March 2015 when he was injured in his World War II-era trainer. It crashed on a Los Angeles golf course after engine failure.

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 Turner Classic Movies will continue memorializing Robert Osborne at the TCM Classic Film Festival in Los Angeles next month.

Festival organizers announced Friday that the eighth annual film festival will be dedicated to the channel's longtime host, who died on March 6 at age 84.

Osborne's TCM colleagues and friends will share stories about him during a panel discussion on the festival's opening day, April 6. All festival screenings that day will be preceded by an Osborne tribute video.

Other special screenings are planned, including the \"20th Anniversary Tribute\" honoring Osborne that premiered in 2015.

Osborne was the TCM Classic Film Festival's first host. TCM's Ben Mankiewicz has taken over those duties in recent years.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) \u2014 Rappers 2 Chainz, Lil Yachty and Desiigner are headlining an annual and expanded University of Michigan concert to raise money for Detroit youth.

Tickets went on sale this week for the April 14 show at Ann Arbor's Crisler Center. The show caps SpringFest, a day of on-campus events that includes more musical acts, a \"Shark Tank\"-style business pitch competition and a \"Food Truck Face-Off.\"

SpringFest 2017 is presented by Universal Music Group and MUSIC Matters. MUSIC stands for Michigan Undergrads Serving in the Community.

The event has grown over the years. This year's concert will be the first at Crisler in many years.

The show marks a return for 2 Chainz, who came to SpringFest in 2014.

Tickets start at about $30 for the public and $20 for university students.

Palo verde trees are bursting into early bloom around Tucson \u2014 creating splashes of yellow desert beauty but also ushering in a season of sniffles for some allergy sufferers.

\u201cThis year is earlier than usual\u201d for palo verde blooms,\u201d said Dr. George Makol, a physician and allergy specialist with Alvernon Allergy and Asthma in Tucson.

\u201cThere is so much pollen in each tree now, and on a windy day it can blow for several blocks,\u201d Makol said.

Other plants \u2014 from ragweed and rabbitbush to ash, mulberry and olive trees \u2014 are often considered greater problems for allergy sufferers than palo verde trees. But palo verdes are flourishing in current climatic conditions and appear to be causing more allergic reactions than in the past.

\u201cWe\u2019re seeing very lush palo verde trees these days,\u201d Makol said. \u201cThe reason we see palo verdes become so lush is that there is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. That is what the plants breathe.

\u201cSo the palo verde is becoming a more important allergen.\u201d

BEAUTY WITH A BITE

The palo verde \u2014 with a name that means \u201cgreen stick\u201d in Spanish \u2014 is Arizona\u2019s official state tree.

It\u2019s revered for its beauty, especially during the spring blooming season \u2014 but that beauty comes with a bite for those who are allergic to its pollen.

\u201cEye itching and sneezing can be the first symptoms,\u201d Makol said. \u201cThere can also be nasal itching, nasal drip and congestion\u201d with continued exposure.

COPING STRATEGIES

Home treatments such as antihistamines and nasal sprays are available over the counter at stores, Makol said.

\u201cThey can reduce eye symptoms and nasal symptoms,\u201d he said.

For people who experience recurrent symptoms every spring, \u201cthen we look at allergy desensitization, with injections of the protein of the pollens they\u2019re allergic to,\u201d Makol said.

Staying indoors on windy days and taking care not to track plant debris into the house can also help reduce allergic reactions, experts say.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Authorities have cuffed a man charged with stealing Grammy winner John Legend's Louis Vuitton bag containing $25,000 Cartier cufflinks from an airport luggage cart in New York.

District Attorney Richard Brown says 63-year-old Agustin Hilario swiped the bag Thursday when it was momentarily left unattended on a luggage cart at Kennedy Airport.

Brown says Hilario was identified through surveillance camera footage. He was arrested on charges including grand larceny and possession of stolen property.

Hilario was awaiting arraignment in Queens criminal court Friday. It's not known if he has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.

Legend is a singer, songwriter, musician and actor who co-starred in the film \"La La Land.\"

The prosecutor says Legend's possessions, including the $25,000 panther-head cufflinks, were returned to him.
