WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Ride Along repeats atop the chart with 21.2 million; its 49 percent drop is not terrible after a long weekend debut, and 75.4 million against a 25 million production budget should leave a happy studio. Lone Survivor repeats at No. 2 with 12.6 million; again, a 43 percent drop isn't great for a well-reviewed war movie (and one unlikely to do big overseas biz), but 93.6 million so far against a 40 million production budget isn't bad. The Nut Job shows with 12.3 million on a 37 percent drop -- and should recoup its 42 million production budgetin the coming week.  Frozen moves up a notch to the fourth slot with another 9 million and a 347 million domestic total against a 150 million production budget (worldwide, it has crossed the 800 million mark).  Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit rounds out the Top Five with 8.8 million; the reboot seems unlikely to recoup its 60 million budget domestically, but has grossed 76.7 million worldwide so far.  Below the fold, I, Frankenstein opened in sixth place with 8.3 million against a 65 million budget. Ouch. I note, however, that Lionsgate isn't really taking the hit for this -- Lakeshore Entertainment (which produced the similar Underworld series) is really the company on the hook for this one. Also, American Hustle continues to lead the Oscar-bait on this week's chart, despite the widening releases for Dallas Buyers Club and Nebraska.

LIBYA: Kidnappers holding five Egyptian diplomats gave Egypt 24 hours to release Libyan Revolutionaries Operations Room head Shaban Hadia Al-Zway, who was arrested two days ago in Alexandria on suspicion of links to al Qaeda. As a precaution, Egypt evacuated staff from its embassy in Tripoli and consulate in Benghazi.

SYRIA: The Assad regime and the Syrian opposition failed to reach any agreements in their first face-to-face meeting.

THE UNITED STATES Congress cut the US military and development aid budget for Afghanistan for this year to $1.1 billion, down from last year's $2.1 billion, in the wake of President Karzai's refusal to sign a bilateral security agreement and reports of waste and fraud in Afghanistan.

IRAN: The head of the UN's nuclear watchdog says the interim deal reached with Iran on its nuclear program is an important step forward, but that "there is still a long way to go".
