Johnny Depp tops the cast of stars headed to Venice this week for what is shaping up as something of a watershed edition of the world's oldest film festival. Amid the usual mix of big-budget Hollywood productions and more cerebral offerings from international auteurs, this year's event breaks new ground with the first major feature film to be produced in-house by Netflix among 21 works competing for the festival's top prize, the Golden Lion. Four years after it started acquiring its own original television content with Kevin Spacey's acclaimed "House of Cards", the US streaming giant is hoping for a similar publicity, credibility and subscriber-generating hit with "Beasts of No Nation", a child soldier drama featuring Britain's Idris Elba as a warlord called 'Commandant' and an otherwise largely unknown cast.
Budapest's main international railway station on Tuesday ordered an evacuation as hundreds of migrants tried to board trains to Austria and Germany, an AFP reporter at the scene said. The announcement came after around 500 migrants -- men, women and children -- tried to board the latest train to Vienna, the AFP reporter said. Some migrants began shouting as hundreds of police, some of them riot officers, began moving people out although they offered no resistance and there were no clashes.
