LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 The airport hangar facade from the opening scene of \"Casablanca\" has found a home a decade after being saved from the wrecking ball.

The arched facade dating to the 1920s has been in a Los Angeles parking lot since it was removed during 2007 renovations at Van Nuys Airport.

The hangar with 95-foot doors appeared in movies including the 1939 Laurel and Hardy comedy \"The Flying Deuces.\" Most famously a plane lands in front of it in 1942's \"Casablanca,\" starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

Christine Dunn, who with her late husband recovered the hangar 10 years ago, told the Daily News on Sunday (http://bit.ly/2qv0Y9L ) that it'll be moved to Valley Relics Museum, home to many pop culture items.

The goal is to restore it as part of a Moroccan-themed restaurant at Van Nuys Airport.

Solid, wistful and surprisingly poignant, \u201cPirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales\u201d is the fifth film in Disney\u2019s money-making franchise.

If you heard this was the last in the series, I think you probably heard wrong, judging from a puzzling stinger (extra scene) that\u2019s at the very end of the credits (no, I haven\u2019t figured out exactly what this sequence is all about, and it wouldn\u2019t be sporting to spoil it for anyone else. So if you understand what this portends, please share your thoughts with me).

Once again, Johnny Depp is the center of attention as the drunken but lovable Captain Jack Sparrow. We have to wait until the film really gets going before we see him, though, because first we meet the now-grown-up Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites, \u201cThe Giver\u201d) who wants to find his missing father Will (Orlando Bloom). Henry wants to break a curse that has kept Will from his family for such a long time.

We finally meet Jack as the movie flashes forward about 10 years. Jack is lying a in a huge bank vault that he and his crew are ineptly trying to plunder. In a delightful chase scene that hearkens back to the earliest days of Walt Disney\u2019s live-action flicks (think back to the animated and live-action chase scenes from decades ago) there\u2019s a hugely entertaining action sequence through the streets of town.

We also meet Carina Smythe (Karina Scodelario, \u201cThe Maze Runner\u201d), a young woman scientist who, because of her knowledge and problem-solving abilities, is accused of being a witch.

Carina says that she has the key to unlock the mystery of the Trident of Poseiden, which supposedly has the power to overcome the curse and all other curses as well. Jack, Henry and Carina team up to hunt for the trident while they battle against Salazar (Javier Bardem), a ghost pirate, and Captain Barbarossa (Geoffrey Rush).

A strong woman protagonist, a budding romance and also a love story that\u2019s connected to the past films, lots of humor, swashbuckling and especially Depp\u2019s performance as Jack provide solid entertainment. The sea itself and all the other environments and special effects \u2013 watch the way Salazar\u2019s hair swirls, as if it\u2019s underwater \u2013 are dazzling to behold.

This is what a summer movie is supposed to be, full of action, emotion and fun. It\u2019s a popcorn movie that may not join the ranks of Oscar hopefuls but will remain a crowd-pleaser even when it goes to Blu-Ray.

And fans of The Beatles should take note: Sir Paul McCartney has a marvelous but brief cameo as Jack\u2019s uncle.

LONDON (AP) \u2014 Police in Manchester, England issued a picture of the arena suicide bomber holding a blue suitcase and asked anyone who might have seen him with it before the attack to call a confidential hotline.

Counter-terrorism squads are trying to re-create Salman Abedi's movements in the days before he detonated a bomb at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, killing 22 people. Police believe Abedi had the wheeled suitcase with him at two locations in Manchester.

The suitcase was not used in the attack, which was carried out when Abedi detonated an improvised bomb minutes after the concert ended, Greater Manchester Police Detective Chief Superintendent Russ Jackson said.

Jackson tried to reassure nervous residents of Manchester that the bag does not pose a risk to public safety. But if any members of the public find it, they should not approach it, but call police immediately, he said.

\"We have no reason to believe the case and its contents contain anything dangerous, but would ask people to be cautious,\" Jackson said.

He said Abedi may have had the blue suitcase with him when he visited the Wilmslow Road area and the Manchester city center in the days before the blast.

\"Did you see Abedi with this suitcase between the 18 and 22 May 2017? Where did you see him with it during that time?\" Jackson said.

The bombing investigation expanded early Monday when police arrested a 23-year-old man on the south coast of England, hundreds of miles south of Manchester.

Greater Manchester Police said the man was arrested in Shoreham-by-Sea on suspicion of terrorism offenses and an address there was being searched.

The arrest means that 14 men are now in custody in Britain for suspected roles in Britain's worst attack in a decade.

The suspects have not been identified or charged. All are being held on suspicion of violating the Terrorism Act.

Police and security services have said very little about the network believed to be behind Abedi, a Manchester native whose parents had moved to Britain from Libya. Abedi's elder brother Ismail is among the suspects being held in Britain, and a younger brother and Abedi's father have been detained in Libya.

Britain's intelligence services have launched an inquiry into how warnings about the 22-year-old Abedi's radical views were handled amid indications that vital warning signs were missed.

Police are scouring 12,960 hours of closed circuit TV recordings in their search for clues, have collected more than 630 pieces of evidence and have searched 21 addresses.

Authorities say Abedi returned to Britain from Libya on May 18, and likely completed assembling his bomb at a rented apartment in central Manchester.

Britain's official terror threat level was set at \"critical\" in the days after the attack but was downgraded Saturday to \"severe.\" The country remains on high alert, however, as officials caution that some suspects who helped Abedi may still be at large.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) \u2014 Robert De Niro says that \"in movie terms,\" the country was once \"an inspiring uplifting drama\" but now has turned into \"a tragic dumbass comedy.\"

The two-time, Oscar-winning actor spoke to Brown University graduates Sunday at the Ivy League school's commencement ceremonies. He urged them to \"work to stop the insanity\" and to strive to make the world better.

De Niro received an honorary doctorate of fine arts.

Actor and rapper Daveed Diggs, who won a Tony Award for his role in the phenomenon \"Hamilton,\" also was among those who received honorary degrees. Diggs told the graduates that the country needs their new ideas \"because the old ones have made a mess of things.\"

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) \u2014 A film festival on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation aims to bolster the anti-pipeline movement that blossomed there last year while also fostering connections between the Native American community and the film industry.

The inaugural Standing Rock Nation Film and Music Festival, which runs this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the tribal casino near Fort Yates, will showcase the talent of Native American filmmakers and musicians. It also features films about American Indians and provides a venue for those who opposed the $3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline to reminisce.

\"It was the most amazing coming together of people from all over the country, all over the world,\" said festival producer Tricia van Klaveren, an independent filmmaker in San Francisco who spent time in a protest camp in southern North Dakota that held hundreds and sometimes thousands of people between August and February. \"Standing Rock represents, people really came together and united. History was created.\"

People in the camp dubbed themselves \"water protectors,\" a reference to the fear that oil and gas pipelines threaten water sources. They couldn't stop Dakota Access \u2014 the line to move North Dakota oil to a distribution point in Illinois is set to go into commercial service on Thursday \u2014 but the movement has spread to other pipeline projects around the country.

Organizers hope some people will make a return trip for the festival, though the casino has a capacity of only 1,000 people. Many events and panels will be live-streamed online.

\"It is our goal that this weekend festival will empower, enlighten, and entertain the Native community and all global citizens,\" said Mitchell Zephier, a member of the Lower Brule tribe in South Dakota and the festival's founder and executive director.

Among the films being screened are \"AWAKE, A Dream from Standing Rock,\" which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in April, and \"Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World,\" a documentary about Native musicians. That film, which won an award at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, is an example of another purpose of the event.

\"Part of the festival is creating a bridge between the Native community and film industry,\" van Klaveren said. \"Telling more of the stories that haven't been told, and telling them through the Native American lens, the Native American perspective.\"

The festival is free, though donations are encouraged so there's money to continue the event in future years, van Klaveren said. This year's festival is being funded by the tribe and volunteer labor, she said.

Priyanka Chopra thinks Indian stars face a \"struggle\" to make it in Hollywood.

The 'Baywatch' beauty has become a well-known face in the US, as well as at home in India - but Priyanka has admitted it remains tough for Bollywood actresses to achieve stardom in the States, because of the stereotypes that continue to surround them.

She said: \"Those are stereotypes you have to fight all the time and I guess it will only come with educating people and having them see Indian actors in mainstream parts, (to make them aware) that we can do this.

\"There is no putting us in a box. But it is going to be a struggle. There is so few of us.\"

Priyanka, 34, said the entertainment industry needs to embrace greater diversity.

She told PTI: \"I believe that in the business where there is demand, there will always be supply.

\"Even audiences and people who watch and consume entertainment need to be open to seeing all kinds of people in iconic parts and not just a certain kind of actors or people who look a certain way.\"

And Priyanka - who stars alongside Zac Efron and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in the new 'Baywatch' movie - argued that it's important to challenge Western stereotypes about the Indian film industry.

She explained: \"There are huge stereotypes about India, about Hindi films. There is a lot more awareness now that Hindi movies are such a big industry but the stereotypes still exist.\"

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 Johnny Depp is 53 years old but he doesn't look a day over 26 in the new \"Pirates of the Caribbean\" movie \u2014 at least for a few moments. There was no plastic surgeon involved, heavy makeup or archival footage used to take the actor back to his boyish \"Cry Baby\" face, however. It's all post-production visual effects, and after a decade of refining the process since Brad Pitt ran the gamut of time in \"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,\" it's becoming commonplace in major Hollywood movies.

Depp is just the latest mega-star to get the drastic de-aging treatment on screen, joining the ranks of Robert Downey Jr. (in \"Captain America: Civil War\"), Michael Douglas (in \"Ant-Man\"), Kurt Russell (in \"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2\") and scores of others getting digital facelifts to play younger versions of themselves. In the old days, a lucky unknown lookalike (or look enough alike) could have scored the part of young Jack Sparrow or Tony Stark. Now, if the film has the budget, the stars get to have it both ways \u2014 and audiences get a nostalgic flashback.

Lola Visual Effects is responsible for Depp's transformation, and most of the Marvel tricks, which have included making Chris Evans scrawny for the original \"Captain America\" and Hayley Atwell some 70 years older for the sequel.

Lola was the pioneer behind \"Benjamin Button,\" too, and sells their services to all the major studios. It's one of a handful of vendors that have gotten in the so-called \"beauty work\" business. It's often meant to go unnoticed (like removing a blemish), and is generally buried under mountains of confidentiality agreements.

In the case of Depp, and most of Lola's de-aging work, the process starts with capturing a performance from the actor and then manipulating it. This isn't always necessary \u2014 \"Rogue One\" recreated the late Peter Cushing's Grand Moff Tarkin without him, and Carrie Fisher's Princess Leia using doubles \u2014 but it was critical for \"Pirates.\"

\"No one else can be Jack Sparrow,\" said Gary Brozenich, the Oscar-nominated VFX artist who oversaw visual effects for the film. \"Trying to do a digital approximation ... audiences would see right through it.\"

Brozenich and the filmmakers decided to bring Depp back to how he looked around the time of \"21 Jump Street\" and \"Cry Baby\" and went through a number of iterations, over the course of six months, to arrive at the perfect age (roughly 26) \u2014 which Depp, Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer had to sign off on. The final shots, of which there are 20-25, took about 15 artists a year of work.

That Depp has been famous since that age was both a blessing and a curse for the production. They had numerous reference points to work with, but, so would the audience.

\"Working on the human face is one of the, if not the most challenging thing to do,\" said Trent Claus, the visual effects supervisor for Lola VFX. \"People can tell when there is something amiss. Even if they can't put their finger on what is wrong, they can tell that something is wrong.\"

And while the artists have gotten better over the years and have mostly managed to avoid drifting into the dreaded uncanny valley \u2014 the term used to describe the eerie feeling you get when looking at a digital person who is near-lifelike, but not quite enough \u2014 there are still trouble spots.

\"One of the things that we struggle with is the bottom of the chin. As you get older there tends to be a lot of sag and extra skin that develop underneath the jaw,\" Claus said. \"It is unfortunately not just a simple task of removing the wrinkles because the skin isn't going to be responding the same as it did when you were younger. You have to change not only the way it looks on the outside but how it moves and reacts to movement and expressions.\"

To counteract this, productions will often shoot a younger double to mimic an actor's performance, which they will use as a reference point for how the younger skin should behave and look in certain lights.

\"We're constantly fighting making it look lifelike. One of the advantages of the process that we use is by keeping the original actor, we have that starting point of life, of reality,\" Claus said.

It makes the whole process harder, but, \"It's worth it.\"

Reactions, lately have been mixed, ranging from nostalgic delight and \"how'd they do that\" curiosity to dismay and wariness about its future.

New York Magazine critic David Edelstein wrote that the \"recreations\" are \"far more disturbing in their real-world implications than the fictional destruction of planets and galaxies.\"

For New York Times critic Manohla Dargis, Russell's younger visage was \"weird\" and \"disrupting.\"

\"It makes you contemplate whether this Benjamin Button-style age-reversing is going to become an increasingly standard (and creepy) industry practice,\" she wrote.

\"Pirates 5\" co-director Espen Sandberg isn't as dark about it.

\"For me it's just another storytelling tool and I think it's really cool,\" he said.

And for the VFX artists, it's only the beginning.

\"Right now what we're using it for is a very nuts and bolts solution to a problem. There's a different and more creative future for it,\" Brozenich said. \"There can be even crazier, more creative uses for it ... maybe a hybrid of several actors.\"

He thinks the next step is a digital character that plays a larger part, and not just a flashback. After all, the young Han Solo movie isn't using a de-aged Harrison Ford or Billy Dee Williams \u2014 they've cast Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover.

\"We have digital characters that are a primary part of (films), like Rocket and Groot from 'Guardians of the Galaxy' ... But they're never a full-on human performer that plays a key role throughout the duration of a feature film,\" he said. \"I think that that's really the Holy Grail.\"

'The Square' won the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (05.28.17).

The Ruben Ostlund-directed satire movie was awarded the prestigious Palme d'Or at the 70th edition of the festival on the French Riviera, seeing off competition from 18 rival movies to claim the coveted gong.

'The Square', which stars Claes Bang, Dominic West and Elisabeth Moss, was not expected to win the main prize in Cannes - but Ruben admitted the accolade has made his hard work seem worthwhile.

He said, according to the BBC: \"I think my first reaction was 'oh my God, how fantastic'. I mean I hugged the main actor that I've been working with almost for two years now.

\"We have been struggling together and it was a very, very happy ending of that work of course.\"

The movie centres on Claes' character Christian, who runs a gallery that is preparing to stage a new exhibition.

However, while he is trying to organise the exhibition, Christian is mugged and he tries to recover his possessions in an unusual way.

Elsewhere, British filmmaker Lynne Ramsay was named the joint winner of best screenplay for 'You Were Never Really Here', while Hollywood star Joaquin Phoenix scooped the Best Actor gong.

Meanwhile, Sofia Coppola - who has previously helmed hits such as 'The Virgin Suicides' and 'Lost in Translation' - won the Best Director prize for 'The Beguiled'.

The drama movie tells the story of an injured soldier who is taken in by a girls' boarding school during the civil war in America.

'The Beguiled' stars Australian actress Nicole Kidman and she was given a 70th anniversary award in recognition of having three films and one TV series shown at the festival.
