LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Furious 7" has again outpaced the competition in the box office race. The movie took in $29.1 million over the weekend -- taking the victory lap in its third straight weekend. But the street-race saga had competition. "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" finished a close second, with $24 million. And while that wasn't enough to capture the top spot, it was almost enough to recoup its $30 million production cost in its first week, alone. Number three over the weekend was "Unfriended." The movie only cost $1 million to make -- so it ends up recouping its initial outlay 16 times over.

"Furious 7" is still the movie to beat -- as the AP's Jamie Friar reports.

ATLANTA (AP) -- It isn't clear whether it's an official medical update -- or hopeful hyperbole. But what Bobby Brown told concertgoers Saturday night made the crowd scream. Brown said his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown is awake -- and was "watching" him. The statement is the first Bobby Brown has made publicly about his daughter since she was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub at her Georgia home nearly three months ago. All the family has said since -- was that the 21-year-old daughter of Brown and the late Whitney Houston was "fighting for her life."


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- In a criminal trial, there's a big difference between getting a case to a jury -- and getting the jury to convict. When a judge ruled last week that Suge (SHUG) Knight should stand trial for murder and attempted murder, it didn't mean the case is a slam dunk for the prosecution. Take as an example the video of the January incident, in which Knight runs over two men, killing one. The clip also shows the survivor confronting Knight before Knight runs the two men over, supporting the defense's claim of self-defense. The survivor first blamed Knight -- but has since said he doesn't want to be a snitch.

AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel reports that when Suge Knight goes to trial, he won't be the only person involved with a shady past.

DEKALB, Ill. (AP) -- Some watch "Game of Thrones" for thrills. But some of those watching the HBO series will do it for grades. Northern Illinois University is offering a course this semester on the popular series -- and students can get honors credit. One of the co-professors says demand for the course was so great, available seats were filled in about an hour.

AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel reports a college course on "Game of Thrones" is proving almost as popular as the HBO TV series itself.

BOSTON (AP) -- So what happens when a celebrity on "Finding Your Roots" doesn't like what's found in those roots? In the case of Ben Affleck, the actor asked the PBS documentary to cut the revelation that he had a slave-owning ancestor -- and producers did. Word of the request was in the trove of emails leaked from Sony and published online by WikiLeaks. In separate statements, PBS and host-historian Henry Louis Gates say they didn't censor the slave-owning past of Affleck's family.


NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) -- An actor who was in the old-school TV show "Good Times" has died. Alton "Ben" Powers was the football player husband of Thelma Evans in the sitcom about a black family trying to make its way out of the Chicago housing projects. A funeral home in New Bedford, Massachusetts says Powers died Apr. 6 -- but gave no other details. Besides his work on "Good Times" -- Powers was in "Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer," "Gimmie a Break," "The Greatest American Hero" and "Laverne & Shirley."


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Jane the Virgin" and "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" are among the winners in the first round of Peabody Awards. The CW sitcom and the HBO news-as-comedy show will get their honors at a ceremony next month. Other winners include "The Americans," "Fargo" and "The Honorable Woman."
