welcome to the "overnight news." i'm reena ninan. donald trump is under increasing pressure to release most recent tax returns. after the latest bombshell on the campaign trail. "the new york times" sent copies of trump's state tax returns from 1995. they show him claiming a nearly billion dollar loss due to the failure of his atlantic city casinos. his airline and hotel he bought in manhattan. by pushing that loss forward, trump may not have paid any federal taxes for up to 18 years. errol barnett has more. >> perfectly legal application of the tax code. and, he would have been a fool not to take advantage of it. it changes. the reality. >> a genius? >> absolute genius. >> no one has shown more genius
in the way to maneuver the tax code and to, rightfully use the laws to do that. >> reporter: the trump campaign pushed back on "the new york times" report claiming the billionaire businessman may have paid no federal income taxes for almost two decades. the paper cites trump's tax return from 1995 in which he claimed nearly $916 million in losses after several of his businesses went bankrupt. trump responded by tweeting -- i know our complex tax laws better than anyone who has ever run for president. his campaign released this statement. describing trump as a highly skilled businessman who has a fiduciary responsibility to pay no more tax than legally required. neither the candidate nor his campaign denied trump paid no federal income taxes for certain years. clinton campaign spokesman robbie mood. >> we talked about the rigged
system out there. donald trump embodies that. >> saturday, trump continued the week long assault on clinton. >> here is a woman. she is supposed to fight all of these different things. and she can't make it 15 feet to her car. give me a break. give me a break. clinton's campaign raised $154 million in september. its best fund-raising month yet. trump is in virginia and colorado monday. reena. >> errol barnett. following the campaigns. issue of donald trump's taxes likely to take center stage tomorrow. when the vice presidential candidates meet for their only debate of the campaign season. john dickerson of face the nation recently spoke with mike pence and tim kaine. >> but i encouraged hillary to run for president in april of 2014. and i told her, don't believe
any poll. you are trying to do something that has never been done. this thing will be close to the end. got to make our case every day. debates are a great way to do that. >> you mentioned virginia, first african-american governor of virginia, told you this, let's assume trump is the worst guy in the world. fine. what makes you better. you are not considered the worst. but you are right next to it. what is your response to that? >> again, we have got to make our case. there is a reason that we are doing well in virginia right now. because i think voters have looked at us and decided they really embrace our message. you know there is three pillars to the campaign. all under the stronger together banner. an economy that works for everybody. not just for a few. i think people embrace that over a dog eat dog or winner take all economy. we got to be safe in this world. but safety depend on building alliances not shredding them. a huge difference between hillary and donald trump.
finally, this is really important. you have got to build a community of respect. the disrespectful language that donald trump uses about racial minorities, accusing the president of not being the united states citizen, immigrants. women. people who worship as muslims not who we are in virginia. i don't think those are the values of the american electorate. >> recently some u.s. military hit some syrian army by mistake. recently. donald trump said that they were the gang that couldn't shoot straight. is it wise for a future commander-in-chief to say about the military they're the gang that shouldn't shoot straight. >> when you look at the policies of this administration. >> he was talking about the people involved in the attack, sir, not the administration. >> well, i think what you are going to have in donald trump in a commander-in-chief, john, is some one who is going to speak boldly, have high expectations. we are going to rebuild the military in the country. provide them with the resources and training they need. to be able to defend our
freedom. and -- and -- and, and prosecute the actions of the commander-in-chief calls on them to do. the contrast with this administration, where hillary clinton and barack obama made a decision to withdrawal all u.s. forces by the end of 2012 from iraq literally created the vacuum in which isis was able to overrun vast areas of iraq that have been hard won by the american soldier. on the other side, thinks that calling that out is disrespectful to the military. i have to tell you as a father of a united states marine, some one with veterans and military service personnel every day, out across this country. they, they long, they all long for commander-in-chief who will make the right investment whose will support our troops at home and abroad and have that in donald trump. >> my colleague, elaine quijano hosting tomorrow night's vice presidential debate. cbs news will have live coverage at 9:00 p.m. eastern. >> the investigation into the deadly commuter train crash in hoboken, new jersey last week turned up disturbing facts about the railroad.
one person died more than 100 were hurt. and the station wrecked when a train barreled right into the station. at the time of the crash, new jersey transit was being audited by the federal railroad administration. kris van cleave reports. >> national transportation safety board investigators were able to get limited access to the crash site. say the data recorder, recovered from the rear of the new jersey transit train was not functioning. ntsb vice chair bela denzar. >> the locomotive was built in the mid 1990s. it is likely that they is a newer event data recorder. in the lead, in the lead passenger car, the controlling car. we are hopeful that -- that will have information that will be functioning. >> should it have been in workinged orrer? >> event data recorders when they're not working are usually replaced. >> engineer thomas gallagher told investigators he does not remember the crash.
>> he said he looked at the watch. noticed the train was 6 minutes late, arriving at hoboken. when he checked the speedometer. he was operating at 10 miles an hour when entering the station track. >> regulators launched a deep audit of the railroad in june turning up dozens of safety violations. new jersey transit trains involved in 164 accidents reported to regulators since 2011 resulting in nearly 6 million dollars in damage to tracks and equipment. during that type, the transit authority has settled 183 safety violations including employee drug and alcohol use, operating procedures and safety standards. the clean-up and repair work at the accident scene here in hoboken will continue around the clock. but investigators don't know when they'll be able to access the second data recorder. reena. >> thank you, chris. the cbs "overnight news" will be right back.

syria's military command is again calling on rebels to lay done their arms and evacuate the contested city of aleppo. the syrian army has been slowly closing the noose around rebel held parts of the city with 275 civilians trapped inside. the european union offering aid convoys but that may be too little too late. elizabeth palmer reports. >> reporter: for nearly two weeks it has been like this. russian and syrian war planes and artillery pounding eastern aleppo. they're targeting islamic fights who control much of this side of the city. at least that's what the russians and syrians say. but can their aim really be this bad? one after another civilian targets have been hit. a bakery.
the vat of dough still rising. people's homes. and two of east aleppo's remaining hospitals which has left doctors utterly overwhelmed. rarely have conditions been this bad says dr. rick brennan of the world health organization. >> children and other civilians are being treated on the floor in corridors. there aren't enough intensive care beds. four children died in the last few days. because the intensive care unit in one of the hospitals was formed. >> reporter: in the last 4 hours there has been ground fighting. as iraqi and iranian militias joined assad's depleted army. but there is no reason to think they're going to retake eastern aleppo any time soon. which simply puts terrified civilians trapped in the city in the line of even more fire. the bombing this week does look

it was followed by deep waterhorizon. magnificent seven. all three may end up making more money in china which is expect the to become the biggest film market in the world in the next two years. holly williams has a story for "60 minutes." >> in the remote hills of eastern china, this is a magic kingdom. but not even walt disney could have dreamed up. it is called the the world studios and at over 7,000 acres the largest film lot on the planet. a palace for every dynasty. a village for every era. where some of the biggest movies in china have been fill filmed over the last two decades. these sets aren't flimsy facades. but full-scale brick and mortar replicas of china's imperial
past. and when the film's wrap, a brief silence. before the sets are flooded by 15 million tourists who visit every year. it is all the domain of a one-time farmer who realized his fields were fertile ground for a new industry. permission is hardly ever granted to film in the real forbidden city. china's iconic landmark. so he built his own. it took several hundred years to build the real forbidden city. it took you five years to build this one. and you made the whole thing from cement? xu got the idea for this place 20 years ago after a visit to hollywood. movies weren't big business in china back then. but he spent $1 billion gambling on their growth. >> do you feel a bit like an emperor when you come here? no. you are just an ordinary guy.
>> reporter: an ordinary guy whose empire hosts 30 productions every day. as the film crews compete for space with tourists. who crowd the sets, straining to get a glimpse of the stars. when the cameras start rolling, movie magic. the movie business is booming across china. shopping malls have popped up everywhere. and with them, theaters. 22 new movie screens open every day. that's right. every day. >> what now? >> reporter: in the last five years, box office receipts have grown a staggering 350%. it has created a kind of mass hysteria, something china has never seen before. star culture. described as china's angelina jolie. >> it feels as if the movie
industry here in china is getting more and more like hollywood. >> the speed of the development, you can't imagine. even for us. >> reporter: it is changing so quickly. >> so quickly. you don't even receive act. it already changed. >> reporter: and transformed into a multibillion dollar industry. chinese studios, produce over 600 features a year. action movies. sci-fi. thrillers. behind them is a group of pioneering movie moguls. like dennis wang. he once worked as a chinese food delivery man in new york. and is now chairman of the largest studios in the country. the movie business has made him a billionaire. a capitalist with chinese characteristics. last year he spent $30 million on a picasso which he keeps in his pocket and in one of his other homes.
so that is the picasso. and you bought it from the, the goldwyn family who owned the mgm studios in hollywood. so not so much a passing of the torch, it is a passing of the picasso. the biggest prize isn't picassos. but hollywood itself. this year, a chinese company, purchased a hollywood studio for $3.5 billion. others have been investing in multimovie production deals with american companies to make films for the global market. >> you are going to use hollywood directors. hollywood stars. to make english language films to compete with hollywood. and make global block busters? >> yes. i think we will be doing it in the next one or two years. maybe in five years we will be doing it really well. >> in five years? you will be competing with hollywood? >> i think we can do it. >> reporter: even though china's
economy slumped in the last year. dennis' brother james, the company ceo says the movie business is recession proof. when the economy is weak, the movie business does really well. when times are bad, people go to the movies and feel happy. and it doesn't cost them much money. >> reporter: the bad times actually could be, could be good for the film industry? >> translator: in the last 20 years, the biggest box office earners have come out when the economy is bad. it is interesting. the sheer size of the chinese market has hollywood salivating. and desperate to get in on the action. dede is an american film producer who spent the last 20 years make movies in china. >> to dave you sit in a green light meeting in a hollywood studio at any of the studios at any of the major six studios,
china is part of every green light discussion. >> reporter: they're wondering will chinese awed -- will chinese audiences like this film? >> they have to. they have to. often times the chinese box office is larger than the u.s. box office for the big blockbuster films. >> reporter: block busters like "transformers 4." >> there remains a price on my head. >> reporter: which made $300 million in china, partly filmed there and co-stars. the chinese government has a quota system. allows 34 foreign fill films into the country every year. to get around the rule hollywood has been co-producing movies in china with local studios. kung fu panda 3 animated in california and shanghai at the same time. >> i lost my father. >> i'm very sorry. >> and co-produced by dreamworks and spin-off oriental dreamworks.
then ceo james fong showed us how they were tailoring the movie for both audiences. >> what we have done is we are reanimating everything around the mouth and throat. when you look at a -- a chinese version of the movie. >> you no longer have a -- a misalignment between the voices and the lip movement. >> so in the chinese version, they look as if they're speaking in chinese. where as in the u.s. version, they look as if they're speaking english. >> the squadron will take here on my signal. >> has this ever been done before? >> this has never been done before. >> for years the only movies any one could watch in china were communist propaganda. revolutionary heroes, patriotic peasants, and guerrilla soldiers. those who strayed too far from the party line were thrown in jail or worse.
as a teenager, filmmaker, was pressured to denounce his own father. also a director. as an enemy of the state. i felt very guilt you. >> reporter: you were forced to do that by political process in china. you were only 14 years old. >> i still feel guilty. i had a choice. i had a choice. >> reporter: in the 90s after things had loosened up. he chose to make films critical of the regime. like farewell my concubine. earned two oscar nominations and tells the story of opera singers who were persecuted by communist henchmen. that movie helped put chinese film on the map. but today, chen one of china's most venerated filmmakers find it hard to keep up.
>> reporter: it's become big business. >> exactly. >> reporter: chinese people. want to see popcorn movies, block busters? >> totally understandable. you know? they don't give a [ bleep ]. they just say, hey, we are here to watch a movie. >> reporter: there are generations that have grown up on china's booming consumer culture. and on the surface, their lifestyles look more and more like young people's in the west. prosperity has transformed china. it is no longer a closed communist country. but amidst all of this modernit ycht, the chinese government senses films and decides which ones can be shown in theaters. we asked to speak with the government officials who oversee the film industry here. but they declined to be interviewed. some things haven't changed. it is not easy filming anything in china. those were just private security guards. but when it comes to making movies, the government is
