- Controversy erupted over A Dog's Purpose when video from the set surfaced showing a dog purportedly being forced into water even though he was visibly scared. It turned out that he just wasn't used to approaching it from that side and did just fine. Josh Gad is the voice of various dogs in the movie, which shows how beloved pets can affect their owners lives. I SAW THIS FILM AND LOVED IT!!!
- Matthew McConaughey plays a down-on-his luck prospector who journeys to Indonesia in Gold. Edgar Ramirez and Bryce Dallas Howard co-star.
- Johnny Galecki and Aimee Teegarden are the bigger names in the horror flick Rings. A strange videotape is said to kill anyone who watches it within seven days.
It's another slow week in the TV-to-video department. Look for season three of The Last Ship and season two of The Art of More.
