WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Furious 7 easily repeats atop the chart with 60.6MM, on a 59 percent drop not uncommon to a summer blockbuster (a bit better than the secnd frame for Toy Story 3, a bit behind The Dark Knight Rises).  Home places with 19MM on a 30 percent drop the studo probably likes.  The debut of The Longest Ride shows with 13.5M, right about where a Sparks tear-jerker opens.  Probably good exposure for Scott Eastwood.  Get Hard drops to the fourth slot with 8.6MM and an 84MM worldwidetotal; still some ways to profit against a 40MM budget and likely big ad costs.  Cinderella rounds out the Top Five with 7.2MM, and will likely finish over 500MM worldwide.

An Egyptian court sentenced Mohamed Badie, leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, and 13 other senior members of the group to death for inciting chaos and violence, and gave a life term to a US-Egyptian citizen for ties to the Brotherhood.

THE ISLAMIC STATE's oil money may be drying up.

SYRIA: Fourteen Palestinian factions support a joint military operation with the Assad regime to retake the Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus from the Islamic State. (Anyone think Assad wasn't complicit?) Peace talks in Moscow ended, failing to reach an agreement.

IRAN: The Supreme Leader expressed skepticism that any progress was made at Lausanne and warned about barriers to resolving the nuclear impasse.

A MANATEE panics a swimmer.

NILE MONITOR LIZARDS eat cats, invade Florida.
