The team behind A Dog's Purpose is definitely trying to save face ahead of its Friday release date.
As you've probably seen by now, footage showing an animal trainer shoving a visibly frightened German Shepherd into turbulent water on set has been made public by TMZ. In addition, PETA has since called for a boycott on the movie.
While Ellen DeGeneres has since spoken out with the film's star Dennis Quaid to defend the movie, so has the A Dog's Purpose's producer.

Sounds like more zombies are coming to the small screen!
Right on the heels of the overwhelming success of The Walking Dead's second season premiere, Fox is reportedly in talks to develop a half-hour television show based on the 2009 flick Zombieland, which according to producer Gavin Polone, was the original plan to begin with!
"The original plan for [Zombieland] was to make it as a TV show. If the TV show goes, then the sequel won't happen."
We could actually see this really working in this format!
And maybe Emma Stone and the gang could pop in for the occasional cameo - you know, if they haven't had their brainz eaten yet!
What do U think?? Are U interested in a Zombieland TV show??

Looks like Conan's getting yet another way to say HAH! to NBC.
Rates for commercials on Conan's new show, despite being on TBS, will run for $30,000 to $40,000 for 30 seconds, which is in the same ballpark as commercial rates for Leno and Letterman.
Here's what Conan's manager Gavin Polone had to say about ad space on the new show:
“The whole concept of paying differently always eluded me. Why is a 27-year-old male with $70,000 income more valuable if he’s watching Conan on NBC than if he’s watching Conan on TBS?”
We'll be curious to see which advertisers will shell out for commercials on Conan's TBS show.
Would U want your commercial to run during Conan's new show? Or do U still think Leno and Letterman will attract more audiences?
