NEW YORK (AP) -- Magic Mike and the Terminator didn't have much of a bang over the July 4th weekend.

Pixar's "Inside Out" was a very close second with just over 30 mil. "Terminator Genisys" debuts in third with almost 29 mil. The male stripper sequel "Magic Mike XXL" manages just 12 million, for a fourth-place opening.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Amy Schumer had a warning for parents at the Fourth of July Freedom Festival in New York. She told parents with little ones to "take a lap." Schumer told some raunchy jokes with gags about sex, dating and Hollywood. She got plenty of laughs at the inaugural festival at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Queen Latifah started with "The Star-Spangled Banner" and ended with a rap classic, "U.N.I.T.Y." Latifah gave a "shout-out to all of our men and women in uniform." And to her dad who's a Vietnam veteran.


NEW YORK (AP) -- There was more than one reason for Vanessa Williams to celebrate on the Fourth of July. She got hitched on the nation's birthday, tying the knot with former accountant Jim Skrip. Williams' rep confirms the couple married, but didn't provide any details. This is the third marriage for Williams, who received several Emmy nominations for her performance on ABC's "Ugly Betty."
