JULY FOURTH BOX OFFICE

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It's magic versus Arnold at the nation's movie theaters this holiday weekend. "Magic Mike XXL" is taking an early lead in July Fourth weekend ticket sales. Channing Tatum stars in the male-stripper sequel, which goes head-to-head with "Terminator Genisys." Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to his signature role, in the fifth installment of the Terminator sci-fi franchise. Both films are trying to knock "Jurassic World" out of the top spot. Pixar's "Inside Out" is another holdover that could do well against the two new films. This year's Independence Day weekend should be much better than last year for Hollywood, which was one of the worst in decades.

TRUMP-FALLOUT

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The show will go on for 51 beauty queens whose TV future hung in the balance after controversial comments made by Donald Trump. The Reelz channel has picked up the Miss USA pageant, saying the event is "an integral part of American tradition." Reelz CEO Stan E. Hubbard says Donald Trump's comments about Mexican immigrants were incredibly insensitive and wrong, but the event is "non-political." He says the licensing fee the channel negotiated with the pageant ensures Trump will not profit from the event. Reelz reaches about 70 million viewers.

HULK HOGAN SEX VIDEO TRIAL POSTPONED

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The civil trial over the Hulk Hogan sex tape is on temporary hold. The former pro-wrestler is suing the website Gawker and the trial had been scheduled to begin Monday. But yesterday a federal appeals court in Florida issued a procedural opinion regarding trial rules. It said some defense motions had been filed too close to the scheduled start date. Hogan is suing for $100 million after Gawker released parts of a sex video involving him and Heather Cole, the ex-wife of Hogan's one-time friend and radio show host Bubba the Love Sponge Clem. Gawker says Hogan talked in detail about his sex life before the video's release, which made the story newsworthy. No new trial date has been set.

ROBIN THICKE EXPLAINS HIMSELF OVER "BLURRED LINES," "PAULA"

NEW YORK (AP) -- Robin Thicke admits his heart wasn't into defending himself during the trial over the song "Blurred Lines" that resulted in a $7.4 million judgment against him and Pharrell Williams. Thicke tells The New York Times he was careless in his deposition because it came two weeks after he separated from his wife, actress Paula Patton. Thicke says the trial just wasn't as important to him as what was going on in his personal life. His attempt to win Patton back, the 2014 album "Paula," was a commercial and critical flop. Thicke says the only thing he would have done differently with that album is give it away.

Rewind Time

July 05, 2015 07:09 GMT

Today is Sunday, July 5, the 186th day of 2015. There are 179 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On July 5, 1865, the Secret Service Division of the U.S. Treasury Department was founded in Washington D.C. with the mission of suppressing counterfeit currency.

On this date:

In 1687, Isaac Newton first published his Principia Mathematica, a three-volume work setting out his mathematical principles of natural philosophy.

In 1811, Venezuela became the first South American country to declare independence from Spain.

In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the National Labor Relations Act.

In 1940, during World War II, Britain and the Vichy government in France broke off diplomatic relations.

In 1946, the bikini, created by Louis Reard (ray-AHRD'), was modeled by Micheline Bernardini during a poolside fashion show in Paris.

In 1947, Larry Doby made his debut with the Cleveland Indians, becoming the first black player in the American League.

In 1948, Britain's National Health Service Act went into effect, providing publicly-financed medical and dental care.

In 1954, Elvis Presley's first commercial recording session took place at Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee; the song he recorded was "That's All Right."

In 1962, independence took effect in Algeria; the same day, civilians of European descent, mostly French, came under attack by extremists in the port city of Oran.

In 1975, Arthur Ashe became the first black man to win a Wimbledon singles title as he defeated Jimmy Connors, 6-1, 6-1, 5-7, 6-4. The Cape Verde (VUHR'-dee) Islands officially became independent after five centuries of Portuguese rule.

In 1984, the Supreme Court weakened the 70-year-old "exclusionary rule," deciding that evidence seized in good faith with defective court warrants could be used against defendants in criminal trials.

In 1991, a worldwide financial scandal erupted as regulators in eight countries shut down the Bank of Credit and Commerce International.

Ten years ago: President George W. Bush thanked Iraq war ally Denmark during a stopover in Copenhagen while en route to an international economic summit in Scotland. Hurricane Cindy moved ashore, pelting the Louisiana coast with sideways rain and intermittent squalls. Retired Vice Adm. and war hero James Stockdale, Ross Perot's 1992 presidential running mate, died in Coronado, California, at age 81.

Five years ago: Israel eased its blockade of Hamas-ruled Gaza to allow virtually all consumer goods; the move was welcomed by the White House, but Gaza business leaders and rights activists said the measures were far short of what Gaza needed. Opera singer Cesare Siepi, 87, died in Atlanta. David Fanshawe, a widely traveled British musical explorer best known as the composer of "African Sanctus," died in Wiltshire, England, at age 68.

One year ago: Ukrainian troops forced pro-Russian insurgents out of Slovyansk, a key stronghold in Ukraine's embattled east. Petra Kvitova overwhelmed Eugenie Bouchard 6-3, 6-0 in less than an hour to win Wimbledon for the second time.

She thanked fans for their patience, saying their hanging in there until she showed up Wednesday night really made her "feel loved."

NEW YORK (AP) -- Nicki Minaj has already won a lot of awards during her career. But she says her career isn't about collecting hardware to put in her trophy case. She says the biggest draw for her being awards shows is performing before a live audience at the venue and on TV. She says that's what she will be looking forward to at the American Music Awards on Sunday. She says she has been at awards shows where she totally forgot she was up for a nomination -- until her name was read off as a winner. The way she sees it, if she keeps making good music, the awards will take care of herself. If you should happen to run into Nicki between now and Sunday, you can remind her she's up for four nominations at the AMAs.

THE SUPREMES: FORMER HOUSING PROJECT IN DETROIT TO BE RAZED

DETROIT (AP) -- They most recently were known as the Frederick Douglass Homes in Detroit. But back in the day they were known as the Brewster projects. And that was the place where Diana Ross and the Supremes grew up. Now, the housing project is about to become another memory.

The city has no set plans for redevelopment of the complex where Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson lived before signing with Berry Gordy's Motown Records in the early 1960s. Bing says he knows the former Brewster projects have "a lot of history" -- but has since "become an eyesore."
