Weeks later, the scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein's alleged history of sexual harassment only seems to intensify. Stars have continued to come forward with stories about the producer, who is now being investigated by police in Los Angeles, New York and London. But could he be charged for the claims of sexual assault and rape leveled against him? And how has he -- and Hollywood -- reacted to new allegations?
Here's the latest on the scandal, from police investigations to the social media movement that sparked a conversation about sexual harassment in Hollywood.
Can Weinstein be charged for the allegations?
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told Et on Thursday that they are currently investigating Weinstein after a woman came forward alleging that he sexually assaulted her in 2013. The woman remains anonymous, but detailed her allegations to The Los Angeles Times, claiming that the producer "bullied his way into my hotel room" and alleging that he "then »
The X-Men will return next year in Simon Kinberg’s Dark Phoenix, but before that happens you can now relive the story of the past three movies with this new trailer for the release of the X-Men Beginnings Trilogy boxset.
Though the franchise began on the big screen back in 2000, the series got a new lease of life in 2011 when X-Men: First Class dived back into the past to explore how the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants were formed. Though the likes of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen cast long shadows, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the cast successfully made the iconic roles their own and are apparently happy to keep on playing them indefinitely.
In the trailer above, arguably the five fan favourite mutants from the trilogy are highlighted. Clips from First Class take us back to Charles Xavier’s younger years as »

Two of Hollywood’s leading women are costarring in the thriller Red Sparrow this spring — and apparently they get along pretty well. Mary-Louise Parker tells People that working with Jennifer Lawrence was “awesome.”
The Weeds actress, 53, says Lawrence, 27, doesn’t seem “at all” like a celebrity.
“She’s very authentic,” Parker told People at the Change Begins Within: Healing the Hidden Wounds of War Benefit Dinner, hosted by the David Lynch Foundation in New York on Wednesday.
“She doesn’t feel like a movie star. It doesn’t seem like she’s burdened by that, which is cool.”

The last time that 20th Century Fox attempted an adaptation of the classic X-Men story arc The Dark Phoenix Saga, we ended up with 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, which saw the Phoenix pretty much taking a back seat in favour of the “mutant cure” storyline.
Well, Fox and The Last Stand writer Simon Kinberg are now taking a second stab at bringing the story to the screen with next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and while recent reports have suggested it will be “grounded” and “not too intergalactic” and may even include The Skrulls rather than the Shi’Ar Empire, Storm actress Alexandra Shipp has now claimed that the movie will be “very accurate to the comics.”
“As a fan of X-Men, you are going to be very happy, because I’m a huge fan of X-Men and so is our director, Simon Kinberg, who’s also writing and executive producing it, »

“My favorite [criticism of] Mother! is Rex Reed, [of the New York Observer, who] called it the worst movie of the century,” Aronofsky said October 11, speaking to students at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film & TV. “For me, [that] is a victory. I mean, finally I got to the top of the list. You know, he hated Black Swan [which], was an ugly duckling for him."
But, he added: “I don’t really read reviews. I try to »

The end of X-Men: Apocalypse teased that the franchise would be stepping more in-line with the comics going forward, as the final shots featured Professor X’s team in some largely faithful comic book costumes. This looks to continue in the follow-up, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, as one of its stars has now promised fans that they’ll be “very happy” with what the movie has to offer.
Alexandra Shipp, who’s taken over from Halle Berry to play a younger version of Storm since Apocalypse, spoke to Deadline about the film and cited director Simon Kinberg as a big reason why Dark Phoenix will be “very accurate” to the comics. As you’ll no doubt know, Kinberg has long been involved with the X-Men movie franchise in the role of screenwriter and producer, but this is his first stint in the director’s chair.

During the San Diego Comic-Con in July, it was announced that The Skrulls are set to make their Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in 2019’s Captain Marvel movie.
However, if rumours are to be believed, we may have another Quicksilver scenario on our hands, as fan site Universo X-Men is reporting that the shape-shifting alien race is also set to feature in next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
According to the site, the film includes a scene at the United Nations building in New York, where Professor X and company are discussing mutant rights. However, the building subsequently comes under attack from alien ships, with actors reportedly sporting motion-capture suits and clearly identified as the Skrulls.
It has been widely reported that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will take the franchise cosmic, although it had been assumed that the Shi-ar Empire would feature in the movie, with Jessica Chastain portraying the Empress Lilandra. »

How far would you go for social media followers? It’s a question many millennials have probably asked themselves -- but hopefully, they won’t go as far as the leads of the upcoming horror-comedy Tragedy Girls.
The film tells the story of two death-obsessed teenage girls who embark on a killing spree in their small town to draw attention to their social media accounts, and its two stars, Brianna Hildebrand and Alexandra Shipp, spoke with Et about how frighteningly close to reality this concept is.
“I don’t think it’s that far-fetched,” Shipp admitted. “I think this generation is moving toward something like this in a sense.”
“It definitely says a lot about the power of social media,” Hildebrand agreed. “It is definitely not too far off to think a young person would do something like this for likes and attention.”
“I think it only takes one person to go that far,” Shipp added.

Blythe Danner has her daughter's back.
The 74-year-old actress wrote in to The New York Times this week after columnist Maureen Dowd called out Gwyneth Paltrow for continuing to work with Harvey Weinstein -- and ultimately winning an Oscar for her role in Shakespeare in Love, the movie he produced -- after he allegedly sexually harassed her.
“Others whom Weinstein asked to give him a massage in his hotel suite refused but continued to collaborate, like Gwyneth Paltrow, who put aside qualms to become ‘the first lady of Miramax,'” Dowd wrote.
"I cannot remain silent while Maureen Dowd disparages my daughter, Gwyneth Paltrow, for the manner in which she chose to handle Harvey Weinstein's attempt at a sexual encounter when she was 22," Danner wrote in response to the columnist's remarks. "Gwyneth did not 'put aside her qualms to become 'the first lady of Miramax' back then,' »

Charlyne Yi has accused David Cross of racism in a Twitter thread in which she shared details of their first meeting. According to Yi, Cross made fun of her tattered pants and when she chose to ignore him, he responded, “What’s a matter? You don’t speak English? Ching-chong-ching-chong.” He then asked the comedian whether or not she would fight karate with him. Yi says the two met again years later and Cross introduced himself as if they never saw each other before.
“I can tell the difference between this man making a joke vs condescending me,” Yi wrote. “This happened 10 years ago and I sure as hell hope he’s changed (or at the very least, he’s scared enough to not be his racist self)…it is very uncool that a 40+ man was being racist towards me, »
