"The Maz Runner: The Scorch Trials" edged out "Black Mass" at the box office on the first weekend of the fall movie season. 20th Century Fox's sequel to "The Maze Runner" earned an estimated $30.3 million, according to studio estimates yesterday. Although that came in slightly below the debut of the 2014 young-adult dystopian sci-fi original, it counted as a win for a movie that cost $61 million to make. Warner Bros.' "Black Mass," starring Johnny Depp as Boston gangster Whitey Bulger , premiered with $23.4 million.

In the 2012 annual BBC Sound Of . . . poll, Lianne La Havas got edged out by an impressive cadre of artists, among them Frank Ocean, Azealia Banks, and Skrillex. But she garnered a great deal of attention for her debut LP from Warner Bros., the outstanding Is Your Love Big Enough? It took off on the merits of singles "Forget" and the title track. They're funky, bouncy, packed with punchy choruses and a potent, empowered feminine playfulness. She dazzled audiences around the world with a tour (she, a Londoner, calls them "campaigns")

Getting that first win of the season last week, after 17 losses, certainly was a point of pride for the beleaguered 76ers. But what about Sixers point guard Michael Carter Williams? What did it mean to him? Not the 6-foot-6 MCW. The 10-inch plush version that retails for $19.99. At the Plymouth Meeting office of Bleacher Creatures, the doll made in Williams' likeness was a point of interest the morning after Wednesday's game. "Does two dolls make a run?" joked Matthew Hoffman, president and founder of the nine-employee company that opened in February 2011.

Tucked between the Convention Center and the Vine Street Expressway is a patch of Center City that time and development forgot. Its blocks are veined with cobbled alleys whose names have almost disappeared from the Philadelphia map: Watts, Florist, Clarion, Spring. In contrast to the snoozy monoculture that is the Convention Center, the little enclave is packed with humming workshops and rowhouses. This is probably how much of downtown Philadelphia looked in the early 20th century, before the triumph of the car, before fragmented blocks were consolidated into neat, developer-friendly parcels.

T ESS GERRITSEN , the author of the Rizzoli & Isles book series, as well as a number of best-selling suspense novels, filed suit against Warner Bros. on Tuesday, reports TheWrap.com, claiming that the studio based its hit film "Gravity" on her novel. Her book was also called "Gravity" and Warner's New Line subsidiary bought the rights to it in 1999. Gerritsen is seeking 2.5 percent of the film's net profit, according to the New York Times . The author claims that her agreement with Warner promised her a "based upon" credit, if the movie were produced.
