Dustin Hoffman has been successfully treated for cancer, his representative told ABC News. “It was detected early and he has been surgically cured,” she earlier told People magazine. “Dustin is feeling great and is in good health.” Hoffman, 75, will continue to undergo preventative treatments to minimize the chance of recurrence in the future. His publicist would not elaborate on what type of cancer Hoffman had or how he’d be treating it. A few months ago, the two-time Academy Award winner made his directorial debut with “Quartet.” “I would develop stuff like every other actor,” Hoffman told “Good Morning America.” “The most important part of it is when you’re in your 30s and 40s and 50s, you think you’ve got all the time in the world. Suddenly, you’re 75 — you say, or get off the pot.” The magazine also reported that Hoffman recently wrapped production for “Chef” alongside Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr. and was set to begin filming the movie “Boys Choir” later this year or in early 2014.

"The Wolverine," starring Hugh Jackman as Marvel Comics' sharp- clawed superhero, slashed its way to $55 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales to claim the box office crown in a summer that hasn't been kind to some other big-budget action films. "The Conjuring," the low-budget horror film that led last weekend's box office, slipped to second place with $22.1 million in domestic sales from Friday through Sunday, according to studio estimates. The film has generated nearly $84 million in overall ticket sales, a surprisingly strong showing for a film that cost just under $20 million to make. The animated film "Despicable Me 2," featuring the voice of comic actor Steve Carell, finished third with $16 million in ticket sales in its fourth week in movie theaters. The film was made by Universal Pictures and has collected more than $660 million in ticket sales around the world. Animated film "Turbo," about a super-speedy snail with dreams of racing in the Indy 500, took the No. 4 slot with sales of $13.3 million. Ryan Reynolds provides the voice for the title character in the film produced by "Shrek" creator DreamWorks Animation. More»

The scene opens in a Cairo mosque, where men have gathered for Friday prayers. “They ask you about music. Say it’s the tool of the devil,” a voice intones. “It’s haram, haram, haram.” The worshippers call out in agreement; they open their palms upward. There are shouts: “God is great!” “God help you gain more knowledge, our sheikh!” The camera focuses on a handsome young preacher with serious brown eyes. “Singing plants hypocrisy in the heart,” he tells his congregation. “And whoever sees a musical instrument should break it.” After the sermon, he takes a silver BMW to a television studio to tape an episode of his hit show, on the topic of sex before marriage (haram, haram, haram, naturally). “My God, he’s as beautiful as the moon!” says a veiled camerawoman. “Too bad about his extremist views.” The most talked-about television serial in Egypt this Ramadan season may be “Al-Da’iea” (“The Preacher”), the story of a conservative Islamist sheikh whose views draw him closer to the fundamentalist camp even as they alienate his family. Its popularity may seem strange, since millions of Egyptians recently took to the streets to depose their conservative Islamist President. But the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that was underground for almost sixty years and governed the country for just one, still fascinates people, even those who despise it. More»

A sequel to last month's hit "Superman" film "Man of Steel" is not only in the works, but will feature two of DC Comic's best-known caped crusaders - Superman and Batman - facing off against each other, director Zack Snyder said on Saturday. Snyder, who directed British actor Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, was a surprise addition to the end of the Warner Bros. film panel at San Diego's Comic-Con, an annual comics convention, and received thunderous applause from the 6,000-plus in attendance. After announcing the plan to bring the two superheroes together, Snyder issued a statement via Warner Bros. saying the two would be fighting each other, and conceded this might surprise some. "Let's face it, it's beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest superheroes in the world," said Snyder, who has been confirmed as director of the as-yet unnamed sequel.

Late kung fu superstar Bruce Lee may be an international icon, but he is still not the complete local hero in Hong Kong. Fans are marking his death 40 years ago this weekend with art gallery shows, exhibitions and even street graffiti but some people are urging Hong Kong's government to do more to honor the former British colony's biggest star. Lawmakers and scholars have joined calls from fans, fearing the government is wary of fully embracing Lee's legacy. His enduring spirit of youthful rebellion and a willingness to fight big oppressors may have spooked city leaders prone to second-guessing their political masters in Beijing. "The Hong Kong government or the people on top of the governing body are not thinking, first of all, in terms of Hong Kong people's mindset," said Lo Wai-luk, an associate professor in the Academy of Film at Hong Kong Baptist University. "They think of how to do something to please the main Chinese government, or not to violate" what they think Beijing likes, he said. More»

A collection of late actress Elizabeth Taylor's personal items, including jewelry, cocktail dresses and film costumes, will go under the hammer in Beverly Hills, California, Julien's Auctions said on Tuesday. The collection, which comes from an unidentified former employee of Taylor, will first go on display in Ireland on Tuesday and will hit the auction block on October 12. The top item, an 18-karat gold, multi-gem earring and necklace set, is expected to fetch between $10,000 and $15,000. The necklace and earrings set include multiple topaz, diamond, peridot and citrine gemstones. Taylor, who died in 2011 at the age of 79, epitomized Hollywood glamour from its golden age with her love of diamonds, her violet eyes and a tumultuous love life that included eight marriages, two of them to Welsh actor Richard Burton.

Rapper Kanye West and his socialite-fiance Kim Kardashian are reportedly planning to marry at an exotic location in Egypt. The couple welcomed their first child, North West, last month. "Kim and Kanye were talking to the baby when in mid-sentence he asked Kim to marry him. She started to cry and mouthed the word, 'Yes'," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying. "This time she wants something different and exotic. She likes how Katy Perry and Russell Brand got married in India with an Indian-themed wedding. She wants that. Kim thinks she's the spitting image of Egyptian goddess Isis, so she has been talking about doing an Egyptian-themed wedding, at the pyramids," the source said. "She says Kanye digs the idea too. It will cost millions to fly everyone to Egypt, but money is no object," added the source. More»

Oscar-winning writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash first explored a father's journey with George Clooney in their 2011 hit "The Descendants," and now they turn their focus on a teenager's coming-of-age story with an all-star cast in their latest film. Faxon and Rash explore dysfunctional family dynamics in independent comedy "The Way, Way Back," out in U.S. theaters on Friday, drawing on their own childhood experiences to follow the journey of a teenage boy on his summer vacation. The film, which has garnered mainly positive reviews and earned a score of 65 out of 100 on review aggregator Metacritic.com, stars Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney and Maya Rudolph, and centers on 14-year-old Duncan, played by newcomer Liam James. Shy and socially awkward, Duncan must spend a summer with his mother (Collette) and her new boyfriend (Carell), and finds a mentor in quirky, carefree Owen (Rockwell), the owner of a local water park.

John David Wilson, the animator, producer and director whose work included the opening credits to Grease and Lady and the Tramp has died at 93. The British-born artist, who also worked on Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and a Stravinsky ballet died in a Blackpool nursing home, Hollywood Reporter said. In 1955, Wilson formed Fine Arts Films, which produced the 1978 Grease sequence featuring caricatures of its stars John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. He also worked on Disney's Peter Pan. Fine Arts Films produced and directed the animated short Tara the Stone Cutter, an adaptation of a Japanese folk tale, and an animated version of Stravinsky's Petrushka ballet. More»

Celebrations have erupted across the Palestinian territories at news that a wedding singer from the Gaza Strip has won the Arab Idol talent TV show. Mohammed Assaf, 23, was a virtual unknown until a few weeks ago but has now become a local hero. The contest, held in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, was watched by millions across the region. Fireworks were being set off in Gaza City and East Jerusalem as revellers thronged the streets. Assaf was declared the winner on Saturday evening, a day after he competed in a final against two other singers - Ahmed Jamal from Egypt and Farah Youssef from Syria. The talent contest has been broadcast on the Beirut-based MBC TV channel since March. His last solo song, performed on Friday, had a political edge, asking for the Palestinian traditional scarf to be raised and calling for reconciliation, the BBC's Yolande Knell reports from Gaza City.
