The latest version of The Jungle Book had a lot more than the bare necessities at the box office. The movie opened with $103.6 million in North America, making it one of the biggest April debuts ever at the box office and continuing Disney's streak of unearthing live-action riches buried in its animated classics ( Cinderella , Alice in Wonderland , Maleficent ). Jon Favreau 's update of the 1967 animated version of Rudyard Kipling 's 1894 book tells the tale of Mowgli with computer-generated imagery and big-screen bombast.

THERE WAS no parking anywhere near East Palmer Street in Fishtown on a recent Sunday afternoon. No easy way to cut through the crowd at Interstate Drafthouse, either. The bar was packed with people hyped to meet Braddock, Pa., Mayor John Fetterman, the tattooed, biker-looking U.S. Senate candidate who's made a big splash as much for his size as his politics. I like his politics, but I wasn't there for the big guy. I was there for the woman who's been by his side on this crazy ride that's attracted national attention, even if he is a distant third in the polls.

In a courtroom overflowing with police and supporters, a jury on Monday acquitted two former Philadelphia police officers of beating and falsely prosecuting a Fairhill man who fled on his motor scooter after a traffic stop and led them on a pursuit driving the wrong way on busy Lehigh Avenue. Former Officers Sean McKnight and Kevin Robinson left the Common Pleas Court room in the embraces of fellow 25th District officers and amid the tears of relieved relatives. Robinson's wife, Amanda, who was pregnant with their now 2-year-old daughter when he and McKnight were charged in the 2013 arrest of Najee Rivera, wept as she hugged and kissed her husband.

Gary Harrison was a rookie Philadelphia police officer when he was shot in the face while on duty in 1991. That night, he was visited in the hospital by then-Commissioner Willie Williams, and Officer Harrison told his boss, "Don't take me off the street," his brother recalled. Mr. Harrison, 50, maintained that dedication to policing for more than 25 years and was still active on the force when he suddenly fell ill Sunday, April 3, with pneumonia while on vacation in New Orleans.
