we could learn more about the cause of a deadly amtrak train derailment in philadelphia. federal investigators are expected to release evidence and reports later today. excessive speed has already been cited as a factor in the may 20-15 accident which killed eight people and injured more than 200 others. but the national transportation safety board hasn't said why the train was going too fast as it rounded a curve. "kung fu panda three" was number one at the box office this weekend. the animated feature raked in 41-million dollars... however, it's the lowest opening for the franchise yet.
