Movie News, Reality Show “Ring” Coming Soon
Here are the latest Hot Topics presented by the Walton Arts Center.
CELEBRATING ANNE HECHE
Anne Heche died of injuries sustained in a violent car accident last week.
Heche enjoyed a dramatic rise in Hollywood in the 1990s and an accomplished career contrasting with personal chapters of turmoil.
Heche was “peacefully removed from life support,” spokeswoman Holly Baird said in a statement late Sunday.
Heche was on life support at a Los Angeles burn care center after his car crashed into a house on August 5.
She was declared brain dead on Friday, but was kept on life support in case her organs could be donated – an evaluation that lasted nine days.
Heche was 53 years old.
BOX OFFICE REPORT
Brad Pitt’s action flick “Bullet Train” topped all movies in ticket sales for a second straight weekend, according to studio estimates.
While the incredible endurance helped “Top Gun: Maverick” return to third place in its 12th week of release.
After launching the previous weekend with around $30 million at the box office, “Bullet Train” earned $13.4 million in its second go-around.
NEW AMAZONIAN RING SHOW, “RING NATION”
What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen on your doorbell camera?
Amazon Ring-owned companies and Hollywood studio MGM are teaming up to create a TV show modeled after “America’s Funniest Videos.”
MGM says the half-hour “Ring Nation” program will feature viral footage of Ring’s doorbell and smart home cameras.
The series is the latest example of Amazon merging its various business arms.
Amazon created “Ring” in 2018. Since then, the company has faced a series of privacy issues regarding Ring and its dealings with police departments across the country.
The show will be hosted by comedian Wanda Sykes and will premiere in syndication on September 26.
