Brielle Biermann Reignites Rhoa Feud with NeNe Leakes with a Single Instagram Comment
She’s not a Housewife, but Brielle Biermann certainly knows how to stir the Bravo pot.

As Real Housewives of Atlanta fans are well aware, a bitter feud recently erupted between Kim Zolciak-Biermann, 39, and NeNe Leakes, 49, after Zolciak-Biermann’s daughter Brielle alleged she found cockroaches in Leakes’ home. The incident will play out in detail this season, but in the meantime, Brielle, 20, is adding fuel to the fire by shading not just Leakes, but also her fellow Housewives Kenya Moore, 46, and Cynthia Bailey, 50. (Zolciak-Biermann has also been fighting with Moore this season, lunging at her in a recent episode after

Alamo Drafthouse’s Fantastic Fest Announces New Female-Led Board in Wake of Harassment Claims

Alamo Drafthouse’s Fantastic Fest Announces New Female-Led Board in Wake of Harassment Claims
More than two months after a series of scandals rocked Texas-based theater chain Alamo Drafthouse and its annual film festival Fantastic Fest, the Austin festival has unveiled a brand-new board of directors led by some of the event’s most well-known female personalties and long-time employees. The new board will be led by Kristen Bell as chair, further cementing her place as an essential part of both the Alamo Drafthouse and Fantastic Fest, as she has been involved with both entities since the early-aughts and has held multiple leadership roles over those many years.

Bell will be joined on the board by actor and film buff Elijah Wood, film writer and programmer Kier-la Janisse, film curator and producer Peter Kuplowsky, and producer Suki-Rose Simakis.

NBC Parent Comcast’s Stock Jumps 4 Percent After Matt Lauer Is Dropped
So far, Comcast investors aren’t worried about losing the host of NBC’s long-running “Today” morning show. Shares of NBC parent company Comcast jumped 4 percent on Wednesday morning to nearly $38 a share in the hours after NBC announced it had fired “Today” show host Matt Lauer for “”inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.” NBC — which falls under the Comcast banner — has routinely won the coveted ages 25-54 demographic for its morning shows. The 59-year-old Lauer had been with the “Today” show for 23 years, and co-hosted alongside Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and weatherman Al Roker. Also Read: Trump Under Fire for.

'Chicago P.D.': Jesse Lee Soffer on Halstead's Struggles and the Effects of Lindsay's Absence (Exclusive)

'Chicago P.D.': Jesse Lee Soffer on Halstead's Struggles and the Effects of Lindsay's Absence (Exclusive)
Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you haven’t watched Wednesday’s episode of Chicago P.D.

One of Chicago P.D.’s own is headed down a dangerous path.

On Wednesday’s episode, titled “Care Under Fire,” Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) goes undercover to stop an ex-military kidnapping crew from killing an innocent child, which dredges up demons from his past. Leaning on his past Ranger experience, Halstead persuades Voight (Jason Beghe) to let him take lead on the mission. Things go terribly awry when the man Halstead befriends, a fellow ex-Ranger, is shot dead and he lies to his sister, Camila (guest star Anabelle Acosta) -- with whom he becomes romantically entangled -- about his involvement.

“He’s been downward spiraling since episode one of this season after killing that little girl, it exposed him to some stuff that he hadn’t dealt and that he’s been burying. We’ve seen him

Trading Cards Reveal Plot Outline For Star Wars: The Last Jedi

In these seemingly endless months of waiting for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, fans have been clutching at every hint they can find about what we can expect from the much anticipated sequel. Thankfully, the steady deluge of merchandise for the movie has provided many clues, be it from action figures, Lego boxsets or even coloring books. The latest such release might be the most useful yet, though, as it looks like it contains a point-by-point breakdown of the film’s plot.

As first shared by GeekyTyrant, Topps Trading Cards have provided a list of the titles for their upcoming Last Jedi set. Judging by these descriptors, it seems that they’re in chronological order and run through the major moments of the movie from start to finish. They don’t reveal any massive details, but if you’re particularly spoiler-phobic, you might want to look away now.

Fantastic Fest Had a Rough Year, But the Best Movies Featured Powerful Women

Fantastic Fest Had a Rough Year, But the Best Movies Featured Powerful Women
This year, Fantastic Fest turned 13, a number that felt apt if you’ve been following the news. Most conversations started like this:

“How are you?”

“How are you?”

Exhale. Hug. Repeat.

Eventually, people got around to talking about the films. Even those were emotional.

Tortured Souls

In past years, bringing context into the Alamo Drafthouse theater meant deciding not to chomp chips and queso during a hushed thriller. This time, audiences welled up watching Carla Guigino confront a lifetime of abuse as the emotionally and physically handcuffed wife in Stephen King’s “Gerald’s Game,” a Lifetime movie-looking low budget adaptation whose blockbuster impact at the Fest might not translate to people at home when it premieres on Netflix. (Guigino, however, is terrific in a dual-of-sorts role as the manacled victim and her empowered subconscious.)

Film Review: ‘The Great Buddha+’

Film Review: ‘The Great Buddha+’
Two small-town nobodies who get cheap thrills from car dash-cam videos lay eyes on more than they can handle in “The Great Buddha+,” a mordant black comedy that’s a digital-era homage to “Rear Window.” Sporting an ingeniously cinematic concept that’s nimbly executed by writer-director Huang Hsin-yao and producer-dp Chung Mong-hong, this ballad of sad losers mixed with satire on parochial politics is convulsively funny yet uncompromisingly bleak, bridging art with entertainment. Arguably the best film to emerge from a year of exciting resurgence in Taiwan, which hasn’t produced an independent film that addresses themes both local and global in some time, “Buddha” swept the board at the Taipei Film Awards, and should be blessed with numerous festival invitations.

A documentary filmmaker with several awards under his belt, Huang caught the eye of auteur Chung Mong-hong (“Godspeed,” “Soul”) with his first fiction short, after which Chung offered to produce as well as shoot a feature-length

Alamo Drafthouse’s Tim League Announces Plan for New Board of Directors to Build ‘A Safe, Inclusive Environment’

Alamo Drafthouse’s Tim League Announces Plan for New Board of Directors to Build ‘A Safe, Inclusive Environment’
Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League has issued a new apology, his latest statement after weeks of controversy involving the Austin-based theater chain. It’s the fourth public statement from League after the fallout of a string of revelations, including the re-hiring of former Birth.Movies.Death. editor-in-chief Devin Faraci by Drafthouse founder Tim League and new accusations directed at Fantastic Fest co-founder Harry Knowles.

In an email update sent to all Fantastic Fest badge holders (including both fans who purchased their entrance and members of the media and industry attending the annual festival) and viewable here, League writes: “I’ve been reflecting on twenty years of decisions as a business owner. In the early days, Karrie and I conferred on all tough decisions, and we always tried to do the right thing…Recent perspective has made it clear that we didn’t always do the right thing, despite what we thought were good intentions.

Fantastic Fest Screenings of ‘The Square’ and Newly Unearthed Ed Wood Porn Film Draw Further Attention to Embattled Festival

Fantastic Fest Screenings of ‘The Square’ and Newly Unearthed Ed Wood Porn Film Draw Further Attention to Embattled Festival
Last week, Austin’s annual Fantastic Fest bowed under a cloud that stemmed from the secret re-hiring of former Birth.Movies.Death. editor-in-chief Devin Faraci by Drafthouse founder Tim League and the continuing fallout of accusations directed at co-founder Harry Knowles. As the beloved genre festival kicks into its second half, it continues to draw attention for programming choices that reportedly left audience members on edge.

Over the weekend, Fanstastic Fest attendee Kim Sherman took to Instagram to share her experience with a Saturday afternoon showing of Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’or winner “The Square,” an event capped by a post-screening stunt that didn’t strike Sherman and other audience members as a wise choice.

Sherman wrote that, after the film concluded, “They asked us to remain seated after the film while they brought a ‘special guest’ into the room. Then they brought out an actor from the film

Harry Knowles Allegedly Sexually Assaulted Austin Woman Two Decades Ago, and Drafthouse Owners Didn’t Take Action

Harry Knowles Allegedly Sexually Assaulted Austin Woman Two Decades Ago, and Drafthouse Owners Didn’t Take Action
Editor’s note: The above photograph of Jasmine Baker has been used with her full knowledge, cooperation, and consent.

An Austin-area woman said Ain’t It Cool News founder Harry Knowles sexually assaulted her at an Alamo Drafthouse event — but the reason she’s speaking out now is she believes change is coming.

Harry Knowles groped me, opportunistically, on more than one occasion,” said Jasmine Baker. “I cannot just stay silent. I am not interested in remaining silent.”

In 1999-2000, Baker was familiar with Knowles and his website, as they often attended the same Drafthouse events. Baker was at a Drafthouse event when Knowles rubbed up against her buttocks and legs in a way that made her feel uncomfortable. While she was initially willing to consider it an accident, on a later occasion he rubbed up against her again; she confronted him about his behavior, and made it clear that

Ain’t It Cool News Out as Fantastic Fest Sponsor After Devin Faraci Scandal: Harry Knowles Explains Why
When Fantastic Fest kicks off today in Austin, it will open without at least one long-time supporter: the influential fan site Ain’t It Cool News has been dropped as a sponsor, and founder Harry Knowles will not be attending the festival. The move is the latest development in the still-unfurling Alamo Drafthouse controversy surrounding the re-hiring of former Birth.Movies.Death editor-in-chief Devin Faraci after he was accused of sexual assault last year.

Knowles confirmed the decision in a phone call with IndieWire today, adding that it seemed like the right thing to do, adding that Fantastic Fest co-founder Tim League would be sitting out the festival as well.

“I’m minding the store this time,” he said, noting that the site would have writers covering the festival. “I’ll be able to get stories up on time — silver linings, you know?”

Tim League Apologizes: ‘I Am Very Sorry. I’ve Let So Many of You Down’
Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League posted an apology on his Facebook page Friday evening, his latest statement after days of controversy swirling around the Austin-based theater chain. The response stemmed from a firestorm of anger following the revelation that League had secretly employed Devin Faraci for several months this year. Faraci was fired as editor of Alamo’s Birth.Movies.Death site last October after accusations of sexual assault, but was employed again as recently as February.

Many movies are screening at Fantastic Fest later this month, but “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” is no longer one of them. Variety reports that Fox Searchlight has decided to pull Martin McDonagh’s new film from the Austin-based fest in light of the controversy that erupted around its parent company, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, earlier this week.

Topps Card Listing Purportedly Unveils A Brief Overview Of Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Plot

Force Friday II is here, ladies and gentlemen, and it brings with it a slew of Star Wars goodies from all of your favorite toy manufacturers – namely Hasbro, Lego, and Disney.

It’s a global merchandise event that’s set to continue through until Monday, September 4th, and while The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson has allayed fears that this massive launch would wind up spoiling the events of the December sequel, a new Topps Card listing does point to a brief plot outline.

First spotted by the eagle eyes of Star Wars News Net (via Screen Rant), these Base Cards supposedly herald the “Journey to The Last Jedi,” and though there’s a very good chance that each title is a vague, throwaway title and/or catchphrase to push sales, Swnn’s report does suggest that there are minor plot points to be found.

Take “Rey’s Solitude” and “Heroes United” as examples.

Star Wars 8 Story Spoiled by Last Jedi Topps Cards
Despite the words of Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, it appears a major spoiler has been unearthed amidst new merchandise released by Topps Trading Cards for tomorrow's Force Friday event. Johnson addressed a question from a fan asking if any new merchandise being released at midnight contained spoilers. Johnson boldly stated, "Nah, unless seeing what characters & ships look like count, we were careful to make sure the toys & toy marketing don't spoil anything." It looks as if the director, Lucasfilm, and Disney forgot about the Topps Trading Cards because they give the basic outline of the entire story for The Last Jedi.

Major Spoiler Alert Ahead for The Last Jedi, so read at your own risk. As StarWarsNewsNet reports, the lists, which can be found on the Topps website, feature all of the cards in the Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, spoiling the story outline. The cards also
