Here's the Scoop...

'Black Panther' leaped far ahead of its weekend's box office competition and took the top spot again!

Black Panther is the No. 1 movie in North America for a second, consecutive weekend, earning $108 million in receipts, BoxOfficeMojo.com announced Sunday.

Coming in at No. 2 is Game Night with $16.6 million, followed by Peter Rabbit at No. 3 with $12.5 million, Annihilation at No. 4 with $11 million and Fifty Shades Freed at No. 5 with $6.9 million.

Rounding out the top tier are Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle at No. 6 with $5.7 million, The 15:17 to Paris at No. 7 with $3.6 million, The Greatest Showman at No. 8 with $3.4 million, Every Day at No. 9 with $3.1 million and Early Man at No. 10 with $1.7 million.

I'd like to see Annihilation and Black Panther, but it seems like it getting harder and harder to get out to the theater.

Be Well,
Steve

Kevin Smith suffers massive heart attack, is recovering
Filmmaker Kevin Smith is in the hospital after he suffered a massive heart attack on Monday after shooting a new standup special, Kevin Smith Live! at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, Calif.

Smith was scheduled to perform two shows, one at 6 p.m. and one at 9 p.m., however, he canceled the second show.

"After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack. The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka 'the Widow-Maker')," the media personality said on Twitter alongside a photo of himself laying on a hospital bed. "If I hadn't canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would've died tonight. But for now, I'm still above ground!"

Smith, known for directing films such as Clerks and Mallrats, among others, currently hosts and produces AMC's Comic Book Men, a number of podcasts and recently finished directing an episode of The Flash for The CW. His last feature film was 2016's Yoga Hosers which starred his daughter Harley Quinn Smith and Johnny Depp's daughter Lily-Rose Depp.

Celebrities including Chris Pratt and Patricia Arquette reacted to the news on Twitter.

"Kevin we don't know each other too good but I have loved you since Clerks and I'm praying my ass off for you cause I believe in the healing power of prayer. Can you please pray with me people!?" Pratt said.

"Scary! Glad your ok," Arquette said.


Heather Locklear arrested for domestic violence
Heather Locklear was arrested Sunday in Thousand Oaks, Calif., for domestic violence and battery on a police officer.

The Melrose Place alum was taken to Ventura County Jail by the Thousand Oaks Police Department after Locklear's brother called to report that she had been fighting with her boyfriend. Police observed a visible mark on the boyfriend with Locklear becoming combative as they attempted to put her into custody, TMZ reported.

Locklear was charged with one count of felony domestic violence and three counts of misdemeanor battery on emergency personnel.

Locklear was released after posting bail, E! News reported. A court date has been set for March 13.

The actress was previously arrested in 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence, charges that were later dismissed with Locklear being sentenced to three years of informal probation. She last made headlines in September after she was hospitalized after being involved in a car crash. No drugs or alcohol were involved.

The Middle co-creator says the show's final script was completed this week.

DeAnn Heline said in a tweet Wednesday that she was "overcome with emotion" while working on the ABC sitcom's series finale.

Heline, who co-created the series with Eileen Heisler, accompanied her post with a photo of the final script. The page ends with the words, "END OF SHOW END OF SEASON END OF SERIES."

"So... we finished breaking the very last episode of #TheMiddle today. Overwhelmed with emotion. I can't wait for you all to see it," she wrote.

The Middle, which stars Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn, returned for its ninth and final season in October. Heline and Heisler spoke to Entertainment Weekly the same month after announcing the show's impending end in August.

"It's always hard to think about ending a show when everything is going so right," Heline said. "But it's also been nine years and we wanted to feel like we were going out on our own terms."

"There will be no Game of Thrones horrible deaths," Heisler promised. "I think it will be super funny, satisfying, and the right ending for the show."

The Middle airs new episodes Tuesdays.
