Here’s what’s happening today in pop culture:

• Singer Celine Dion has declared an indefinite hiatus from show business, to concentrate on the health of her husband and herself. [New York Times]

• Yes, a “Power Rangers” movie is coming in 2016. This is the sort of thing that happens when America embraces a “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie. [Entertainment Weekly]

• Actress Arlene Martel, a familiar and beautiful face on TV shows in the ‘60s and ‘70s — most recognizably as T’Pring, the scheming wife-to-be of Mr. Spock on the original “Star Trek” — has died at the age of 78. [The Hollywood Reporter]
