EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 Eight previously unreleased songs by the late Michael Jackson will be part of a new album, "Xscape," according to the singer's estate and his record label. The songs were unearthed from Jackson's archive of recorded material by L.A. Reid, the chairman and chief executive of Epic Records. The age of the material has yet to be released. "Xscape" will be released on May 13. British singer Elton John says will marry long-time partner David Furnish now that Britain's legalization of gay marriage has been put into effect. John, 67, told NBC's "Today" host Matt Lauer that he and Furnish, who were one of the first couples to become united when Britain legalized the Civil Partnership Act in December 2005, will marry in a small ceremony this year, as early as May. "Noah", starring Russell Crowe as the biblical figure who built an ark to save his family and specimens of every animal from the great flood, collected 44 million dollars (USD) in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales to lead the weekend box office. It sailed past last weekend's winner, "Divergent", which collected 26.5 million and a total of 95 million since its March 21 release. The weekend's other widely distributed new film, "Sabotage," sold just 5.3 million worth of tickets for the No. 7 spot, another disappointment for a film starring one-time box office superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger. Also worth noting, Disney's hit film "Frozen" has become the top-grossing animated film in box office history, as the musical topped 1 billion in global sales.
