  • 'Limitless' tops box office with $19M 


    CHICAGO — There was no stopping “Limitless” at the box office.
    The sci-fi thriller opened at No. 1 this weekend with $19 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
    The film from Relativity Media stars Bradley Cooper as a struggling writer who takes a magical pill that allows him to tap into his maximum brain potential. Suddenly he’s cleaned up, making millions and wowing everyone he meets. Robert De Niro co-stars as a financial guru who’s fascinated by him, with Abbie Cornish as Cooper’s skeptical girlfriend.
    “Limitless” broke out of a crowded pack of new releases and holdovers to take the top spot.

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysian radio stations worry some lyrics in Lady Gaga’s gay anthem “Born This Way” are on the wrong track, baby.
    Broadcasters in this Muslim-majority nation have refused to play lines in the hit song that encourage public acceptance of gays, claiming Thursday they are being cautious because the government forbids offensive content.
    Malaysians who tune in to popular stations hear edited versions of “Born This Way” that use indecipherable garble to replace the lyrics: “No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I’m on the right track, baby.”
