>> reporter: hb-2 provoked a storm of criticism from gay, lesbian and transgender groups who say it discriminates against them. >> all laws impose morality. >> reporter: while social conservatives have been vocal in support. it had an immediate impact state's bottom line. businesses in the capital of raleigh have lost $700,000, from canceled events. 16 groups are considering cancellations worth about $24 million according to state's tourist board. deutsche bank and paypal have frozen plans to create 650 new jobs. as the the fallout continues, governor pat mcrory is trying to diffuse the protest with his executive order. >> the people of north carolina are entitled to privacy and equality. >> reporter: the governor's order seeks to restore the right to sue for discrimination. the state is not challenging the most controversial measure of the law which is a restriction of transgender bathroom access.
his reversal was personal. what did your daughter think about your vote in favor of hb-2? >> honestly, after the vote she called me and said "i'm disappointed." >> how was that to hear from your daughter? >> it caused me to look in the mirror. and, and -- reassess things. richardson said the executive order doesn't go far enough or doesn't do enough. scott, we spoke with a transgender woman who said the law as it remains tonight, villifies transgender people and repealing it is the only option acceptable. >> david, thank you very much. storms are rolling again through texas, tonight they are hoping it is hail they have been hoping it is not the hail they have been through already. here is omar villafranca. >> reporter: the hail looked like torpedoes shot into the backyard pool in wily, texas. in surrounding homes, balls of ice blown by 70 mile an hour winds smashed through windows. leaving entire neighborhoods

has just been an unlucky year. for the last month over texas there has been a perfect mix of moist air and instability in the atmosphere keeping the hail suspended in the cloud for a longer period of time allowing them to grow larger before falling. >> this is really, really unusual. >> reporter: there is some good news, scott. there were no reports of any major injuries. >> omar, thank you. today, the house approved financial incentives for companies that are developing treatments for zika virus. but congress has still not put up the $2 billion that the white house has asked for. dr. jon lapook says researchers are learning more about zika every day. >> reporter: for researchers like dr. ernesto marques at university of pittsburgh school of public health, working on zika for the last year has meant playing catchup. >> it was thought it was a

brain tissue. and so we worry that in humans that this -- this virus may destroy nerve tissue or attack brain cells. >> reporter: to keep this in perspective. most people who get zika recover completely after a relatively mild illness. dr. anne schuchat said the focus remains on keeping pregnant women from getting infected. jon lapook, thank you. how america's top-selling vehicle performed in a crash test. new video reveals what we didn't know about the murder of a super bowl champion. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.
so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for

>> these tests are important. they're going to be pushing auto makers to meet tougher safety standards and create the ability to survive a crash, a hard crash in a number of different situations. >> reporter: the f-150 was the only large pickup to earn top safety pick status with optional crash avoidance technology. scott, dodge says it designs vehicles for real world performance and one test does not determine real world safety. >> kris van cleave for us tonight. kris, thank you.

>> they're inspired from each other. >> when does it cross the line? >> when they're so similar that an ordinary person listening to both would think they are substantially similar. that can get expensive. in march of last year, marvin gaye's children were awarded $7 million when a jury found robin thicke and pharrell williams' song "blurred lines" copied gaye's classic got to give it up. the statute of limitations means randy california's estate can only sue for future earnings from "stairway to heaven." >> millions. could be millions. >> if the jury sides with spirit. there's a lady all that glitters could finally be gold. and she's climbing a stairway to heaven >> anthony mason, cbs news, new
that's the "cbs overnight news" for this wednesday. for some of you, the news continues. for others check back with us a little bit later for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york city, i'm scott pelley. this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the "cbs overnight news" the race for the white house is traveling up and done broadway this week. new york holds its primary next tuesday. donald trump and hillary clinton are fighting on their home turf. clinton is engaged in an increasingly testy battle with
nancy cordes reports. >> reporter: the former vice presidential candidate ruled out ambitious political moves before. speaker? >> i am not. >> why not? i don't want to be speaker. a month later ryan was sworn in as speaker. today he said this is different. >> being speaker of the house is a far cry from being president of the united states. >> reporter: ryan will sever as chairman of the july gop convention and acknowledge delegates may turn to a new candidate if donald trump, ted cruz, or john kasich fail to secure the nomination. i would encourage those delegates to put in place a rule that says you can only nominate someone who actually ran for the job. trump campaigning in new york today suggested the nominating process is rigged. the rules are no good when you have to play dirty tricks in order to pick up delegates. okay? for his part, ted cruz said the real problem in the delegate
uninformed and poorly organized. cruz went on and said, trump can't run a lemonade stand and if he was a contestant on the apprentice he would have to fire himself. major garrett, cbs news, washington. the candidate with perhaps the most to gain from a contested gop convention is john kasich. he discussed the state of the race with scott pelley. paul ryan said minutes before the interview he will not be a nominee for president. what is your reaction to that? >> he would be, look if i am president here, paul ryan and i will work very favorably together. he is an idea guy. i'm an idea guy. and i look forward to working with him to actually accomplish things. >> the irony is you are the most likely republican to win in november and the least likely to be nominated. >> how do you make the argument
that. we have to get to the convention. when you get to the convention it is going to be a wide-open affair. >> how do you make the argument in america that the guy who gets the most votes doesn't win? >> we had ten contested conventions. ten. of the ten, only three times did the front-runner, was the front-runner selected. seven times it was somebody other than the front-runner. >> but you are number three. i can understand an argument. >> so was lincoln. >> i'm not lincoln. >> so was lincoln. >> this ain't 1860 either a uh >> that's right. >> governor you are not the front-runner. you are not the second runner. you are way off in third. >> right now. >> you could make an argument for the guy who came in second. that's not you. >> think of it this way. coke, pepsi, kasich. you go to the store you, are with your spouse. your spouse says, wait, i kind of like that kasich.
as we have seen more and more of my message, be able to be communicated. we're getting bigger crowd. that will translate into delegates. and delegates will translate into momentum. >> what is your tax plan? who gets a tax cut? who gets a tax increase? >> we would lower it. sort of the reagan plan. 28, 25, 10%. 15% capital gain. also, increasing the earned income tax credits so that people at the bottom are going to have, going to have incentives to be able to make more money without being punished. >> nobody gets a tax increase? >> nobody. no. >> what hardship in your life formed your character? >> well, my parents were killed by a drunk driver. 1987. that was tough. tough is an understatement. as a kid, you know i grew up in a blue-collar town. if the wind blew the wrong way we saw people out of work the i had a great childhood. the most traumatic time in my life was the night i found out that one of my parents was dead and the other would be soon. >> where do we see your mom and
>> probably in my heart and in my head. you know, my mother was very opinionated and very, very smart. undereducated. high school diploma. came from a very poor family. my father had the twinkle in his eye. and he was the one that was connected to all of the neighbors as he delivered the mail. he delivered a lot more. he delivered compassion. and he delivered hope. and my mother always said, johnny, shoot for the stars, change the world, where you live. >> when you say you want to leave the convention united. >> yeah. >> can the party unite behind cruz. can the party unite behind trump? >> i think it is very, very hard for people to turn around inning negative impressions in a relatively short period of time. listen when -- >> so, no. the party cannot unite behind cruz and trump? >> the party could unite, you know, this is our person, but at the end, can they win? and in virtually every, you mentioned at the top, virtually every poll, i am the only one that beats hillary clinton. why?
number one, number two, i can attract-- the independent voter and the blue-collar voter. part of it is because -- the blue-collar part is part of my dna. the independent part is because frankly the republican party is my vehicle and not my master and i have been an idea guy all of my life. >> if trump is the nominee you are not going to work for him or campaign for him? >> let wait to see who we have as a nominee. i will let you know. that way we can have another interview.
is fast becoming the center of the film universe. chinese movies raked in more than a billion in ticket sales in february. that is more than the u.s. and canada combined. china with its 1.3 billion people is expected to become the biggest movie market in the world as soon as next year. so how did it happen?
for "60 minutes." >> reporter: in the remote hills of eastern china, this is a magic kingdom that not even walt disney could have dreamed up. it's called hundian world studios. 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 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 films wrap, a brief silence. before the sets are flooded by 15 million tourists who visit every year. it is all the domain of xu win
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 a billion dollars gambling on their growth. do you feel a bit like an emperor when you come here? no, just an ordinary guy. an ordinary guy whose empire hosts 30 different productions every day. as the the film crews compete

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. >> translator: yes, i think we will be doing it in the next one, two years, maybe in five years we will be doing it really well. >> reporter: in five years you will be competing with hollywood? >> i think we can do it. >> reporter: though china's economy has slumped in the last year, dennis' brother james, the hui brothers ceo says the movie
>> translator: 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: so the bad times, actually, 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's interesting. >> reporter: the sheer size of the chinese market has hollywood salivating and desperate to get in on the action. dedee knickerson is an american film producer who spent the last 20 years making movies in china. >> today if you sit in a green light meeting in a hollywood studio, any of the studios, any of the major six studios there, china is part of every green light discussion. >> they're wondering will chinese audiences like this film?
because often times the chinese box office is larger than the u.s. box office. especially for the big blockbuster films. >> block busters like "transformers 4." >> there remains a price on my head. >> reporter: made $300 million in china, was partly filmed there and co-stars, li bing bing. the chinese government has a quota system which allows 34 foreign films into the country every year. to get around the rule, the u.s. has been co-producing films. kung-fu panda three, animated in hollywood and shanghai at the same time. and co-produced by dreamworks and spin-off, oriental dream works. ceo james fong showed us how they were tailoring the movie for both audiences. >> what we have done is we are reanimating everything around
so when you look at a chinese version -- you no longer have a misalignment between the voices and the lip movement. >> reporter: in the chinese version they look as if they're speaking in chinese. whereas in the u.s. version they look like they're speaking english. >> the dumpling squadron. >> has this ever been done before? >> this has never been done before. >> reporter: for years the only movies anyone 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, this filmmaker was pressured to denounce his own father. also a director. as an enemy of the state. >> i felt very, very guilty. >> reporter: but you were force
situation in china, you were only 14 years old. >> no, i still feel guilty. because i had a choice. i had a choice. >> reporter: in the 90s after things had loosened up, chen chose to make films critical of the regime. like "farewell my concubine," earned who oscar nominations and tells the story of oscar singers, persecuted by communist henchmen. that movie helped put chinese film on the map. today, chen one of china any 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? >> that its totally understandable, you know. they don't give a [ bleep ]. they just say, we are here to
generation that as grown up on china's booming consumer culture. and on the surface, their lifestyles more and more like young people's in the west. prosperity has transformed china. it's no longer a closed communist country. but amidst all of this modernity, the chinese government still censors films and decides which can be seen in theaters. we asked to speak with government officials. they declined to be interviewed. some things haven't changed. you can see the full story on our website. cbsnews.com. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. the worst thing about toilet germs? they don't stay in the toilet. disinfect your bathroom with lysol bathroom trigger... ...lysol power foamer... ...and lysol toilet bowl cleaner. they kill 99.9% of germs including e. coli. to clean and disinfect in and out of the toilet...

>> raul arbelaez. the lower extremity injury measures indicated likelihood of serious injury. >> reporter: researchers found that situation occurred in the dodge ram, the truck is ranked at the bottom of the list managing marginal ranking. and low marks for roof strength. 44% of fatalities in pickups occur in rollover crashes. while the institute began small overlap testing in 2012 this is the first time for large pickups with extended cab or full size four-door cab. only ford scored the top good rating. the toyota tundra, the double cab trucks, silverado and sierra. acceptable. larger siblings fared worse. all three a marginal rating. >> automakers sell this. safety is a big issue. one of the top reasons people buy cars or trucks. the detroit bureau chief for automobile magazine. these tests are important because they're going to be pushing auto makers to meet
