Phil Collins marks comeback with European Tour

Ewan McGregor

HOLLYWOD (IMDB): As long as Ewan McGregor has a movie to promote, he’ll keep being asked about returning as ObiWan Kenobi in the “Star Wars,” and the internet will keep printing what he says. That’s just how it works.


But even the actor doesn’t quite get what has fans so hot and bothered about his character. “I like the films that I made with George Lucas and I’m happy to be part of the legend of it all, but that’s it with me” says Ewan.

LONDON (BBC): Rock veteran Phil Collins is coming out of retirement after 10 years with dates in London, Paris and Cologne. The star, whose hits include In The Air Tonight and Against All Odds, will play a five-night residency at London’s Royal Albert

Hall next June. That will be followed by two dates in Paris and two in Cologne. Collins announced his retirement in 2011, after nerve damage left him unable to play the drums, but revealed last year he planned to go on tour.

HOLLYWOOD (IMDB): In this instalment, Langdon wakes in an Italian hospital having suffered a head injury. He is in the grip of the kind of convenient semi-selective retrograde amnesia that

makes him forget the word for coffee while still recalling the password for his email account. Fortunately his doctor, Dr Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), is on hand to fill in a few gaps with the first of

many leaden chunks of exposition. She has to do this during a high-speed dash across Florence however, as, no sooner has Langdon regained consciousness, than there are people trying to kill him.

Kim Kardashian

Court papers said Kardashian West “returned to the United States only to again be victimised, but this time by an online gossip tabloid that published a series of articles in early October 2016 referring to her a liar and thief”. The website refused to publish a retraction and an apology, it added.
