LOS ANGELES (AP) — The list of contenders for best foreign film got a bit smaller Friday as the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences announced the nine features that will advance to the next round of voting.
FCA US, formerly Chrysler, announced Friday it will recall 3.3 million older-model autos worldwide due to concerns about faulty Takata airbags. Automaker FCA US said it would replace the driver’s-side air-bag inflators made by Japanese auto parts manufacturer Takata, despite not having found them flawed. "Neither FCA US, nor Takata Corporation, the supplier, has identified a defect in this population of inflators," said the US unit of Italian parent FCA Italy Spa, which changed its name from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles on Monday. Certain airbags made by the Japanese auto parts company can deploy with excessive force, sending shrapnel into drivers and passengers.
