He looks the picture of perfect health, but Arnold Schwarzenegger had a major medical scare today (Friday).

Arnold underwent emergency open-heart surgery this morning after suffering a complication from a less invasive procedure yesterday. The smaller operation is somewhat experimental, and doctors were ready to move in if it failed.

“A League Of Their Own” Series Is In Development - A classic film is getting the reboot treatment.

Rumor has it Amazon Studios is developing a TV series based on the 1992 film "A League of Their Own." The streaming service and Sony Pictures Television are developing the project as a half-hour comedy. The picture was directed by Penny Marshall and starred Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Rosie O’Donnell, and Madonna.

Don’t look for the original characters to be in the show. No deals are inked yet for the project. The movie was about the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League of the 1940s.

That was fast. A month after launching her campaign, Stacey Dash has ended her run for Congress.

In a statement posted on Twitter, the onetime Clueless star said, "At this point, I believe that the overall bitterness surrounding our political process, participating in the rigors of campaigning, and holding elected office would be detrimental to the health and well-being of my family. I would never want to betray the personal and spiritual principles I believe in most: that my God and my family come first."

The outspoken Republican, who was running for a seat from the Compton/Watts area of L.A., said she'd continue to speak out about the problems facing her district.

AT THE MOVIES

  1. Ready Player One-$41.2 million
  2. Tyler Perry's Acrimony - $17.1 million
  3. Black Panther - $11.3 million
  4. I Can Only Imagine - $10.8 million
  5. Pacific Rim Uprising - $9.2 million

Steven Spielberg, who has not directed a blockbuster since Lincoln in 2012, seems well on his way with the virtual reality action adventure Ready Player One. It topped the weekend box office with more than $41 million in ticket sales -- his biggest opening weekend in a decade.

Tyler Perry got a solid result from his latest, Acrimony, which grossed more than $17 million, in the ballpark of his last picture, Boo 2! A Madea Halloween. Star Taraji P. Henson should feel good about returning from the disappointment of her previous film, Proud Mary.

Dropping one spot to third place, Black Panther added another $11.3 million to its coffers, pushing its domestic total over $650 million and leaves it with a solid cushion as the biggest-grossing film of the last 12 months. (Star Wars: The Last Jedi is number-two, with $620 million.)

The two other holdovers from last week's Top 5 are I Can Only Imagine, at four down from three, and Pacific Rim Uprising, which saw its weekend gross drop by two-thirds. That sank it from number-one to number-five.

================================

Jesus Christ Superstar

Variety said it was "The Most", they said Alice Cooper stole the show when he came on stage with dancing show girls. They loved the entire multi cultural cast... former “Hamilton” cast member Brandon Victor Dixon, “Jesus Christ Superstar Live” was generally mesmerizing.
