Watch the video to see your top three trending stories of the day on social media for July 17.

Number 1: Film director Ron Howard keeping the Beatle Mania alive. He is in the process of directing a new documentary about the fab four's touring years.
The film will start with the group's early days at Liverpool's Cavern Club, and document all the way up to their final public concert in 1966.
It will be done with full cooperation of surviving members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as Yoko Ono, widow of John Lennon and Olivia Harrison, widow of George Harrison.

Number 2: Former Panama dictator Manual Noriega is suing "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" publisher, Activision Blizzard Inc, for depicting his image in the game, without his permission.
He says the game portrays him as a kidnapper, murder, and enemy of the state to heighten the game's realism and thus sales, and the game netted more than $1,000,000,000 in the first two weeks of its release back in 2012.
The game was also scrutinized when it came out for including a character resembling former U.S. General David Petraeus, who had recently left his role as CIA director. The publishers said, "it is clear to game players that his character and others that are based on real-life figures are fantasy."
Noriega is seeking lost profits and damages.

Number 3: Former New Jersey gymnast Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman to complete the American Ninja Warrior finals course in Dallas, and now qualifies for the final round in Las Vegas.
She was the first woman to even pass a 70 foot steel structure that can trip up top competitors.
The gymnast is only five feet tall, but she did not let her size get the best of her, completing the course with a time just under nine minutes.
