Today's Box Office: James Hetfield goes Through the Never

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Concert movies can drag on at times and eventually become boring, unless we're talking about Metallica.

I talked with James Hetfield last week about Metallica: Through the Never which is a concert movie with a  storyline about a roadie who is sent on a mission to retrieve something for the group and along the way he experiences very strange events set to the music of the ultimate rock band, Metallica.

Hetfield talks about the origination of the idea for the movie and the process of putting it all together.

Today's Box Office: Gravity

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 Film Critic Jonathan Nettles says that Gravity delivers a complete movie experience.

New prescription drug drop-boxes go out statewide

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Ark. Dept. of Health) -- State partners in prescription drug abuse prevention are expanding a successful program to help reduce the rates of overdose and death from prescription drugs in Arkansas.

An effective method of fulfilling a community's need for prescription medicine disposal options is to install a permanent drop- box. Through the "MONITOR SECURE and DISPOSE" Drop Box Project, 60 MedReturn Drug Collection Units have been awarded to law enforcement agencies across the state with priority given to agencies from counties where there are presently no drug collection units.

The drop boxes will offer safe and convenient disposal sites for unused prescription drugs for people all over our state. Arkansas Drug Director, Fran Flener, says that the boxes are a very important part of the over-all effort the state has undertaken to remove more than 32 tons of medicines from Arkansas homes.

Family reunites with dog after four years, thanks to a microchip

SEARCY, Ark. (KTHV) - "I'll always remember that first dog," says Sam Young. He is a sweet dog that the Young family thought could do no harm. Wenoka Young explains, "Just disappeared one day. He was kind of an escape artist."

Dozer would find a way to leave the house and roam around the neighborhood, or that is what they thought was happening. Young says, "We got a call from someone who lived about 20 miles away from us, so we knew at that point, he had actually been stolen."

This would happen time and time again. So Wenoka Young decided she would get him neutered in case the thief was stealing him for breeding purposes. While she was there, she also had a microchip implanted.

Soon after, Dozer was gone yet again. Young explains, "Every animal we saw for four years, within a 20 mile radius, that even remotely resembled him, we would stop and check that animal out to see if it was Dozer."

Today's Box Office: Fired up for Rush

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 Film Critic Jonathan Nettles feels the need for speed with Ron Howard's Rush.

I'll keep this one pretty simple by saying that Rush is an incredible film. Director Ron Howard does a really good job of relaying the feel of driving a Formula 1 car to the audience.
