“When I was growing up, a film producer was a rich, fat man with his feet on the table and a cigar in his mouth,” says Rebecca O’Brien, an independent producer and long-time collaborator of director Ken Loach. “And now, you know, that’s me. Apart from rich and fat.”
“That’s me, apart from rich,” quips her friend, Suffragette producer Alison Owen, who worked on five Harvey Weinstein films, including Proof (2005) with Gwyneth Paltrow and, more recently, Tulip Fever. Last year Owen acknowledged her former colleague’s “sleazeball” reputation and spoke out in support of the women who came forward. She is now working towards legislation against harassment in the film and TV industry.
The Lightsaber is an iconic and unique part of the Star Wars universe much in the same way we associate the Proton Pack with Ghostbusters, or the phaser to Star Trek. The inclusion of this futuristic light sword into Star Wars came from George Lucas’ love of fantasy serials, which frequently featured characters with swords. Much in the same way that medieval Knights represented a regal and noble order of combatants, the Jedi represents an individual devoted towards upholding peace and justice. It was only fitting then that they received a weapon that would represent the dignity of their status and charge. Of course, those good guys need someone to fight, and so the major enemies of the Jedi also tend to have Lightsabers.

Tonight's episode began with another obvious yet still true observation from Jughead - that we often wear masks that cover who we really are. Although this episode was written and filmed before the Harvey Weinstein/Louis Ck/et al stories broke, its impossible to view it outside of the context of that news cycle and how it gave rise to the #metoo movement. There's a lot going on in this week's episode but the most important element here is far and away the Cheryl/Nick/Veronica storyline. Last week we saw Nick St. Clair go transform from New York City-based textbook case
Not only is the actress a fan of sharing inspiring, body-positive photos on Instagram (hellllllo, fitness superhero!), but also does so by giving us a more in-depth peek at her enviable physique.
Here are 16 of her most memorable moments.

How nude did she go? 9/10
Michele showed off her serious assets in a continuation of her “bed series.”
2. When she rang in 2017 in the most natural way possible
How nude did she go? 10/10
Michele bares almost all … with the help of an expertly placed emoji.
It has been five days since the first Weinstein bombshell came in the form of a New York Times article — based on six months of exhaustive reporting by Jodi Kantor and Megan Thowhey — which detailed numerous accounts of sexual assault, harassment, and monetary settlements. Since the Times article, many in Hollywood have remained quiet, but with Sunday’s firing of Weinstein by his company’s board of directors and today’s article written by Ronan Farrow, the floodgates have opened.

In light of the New Yorker’s story, even more celebrity reactions have stormed social media. Leonardo DiCaprio, Mia Farrow, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, Mandy Moore, Lena Dunham, and Rose McGowan are just a few public figures who have addressed the New Yorker article.
Mia Farrow, mother of the New Yorker article’s author Ronan Farrow, expressed her respect for women who spoke up and her pride in her son’s work.
Deep respect for each woman who told their story, not knowing what they’d face. And I’m so proud of @RonanFarrow https://t.co/OdOOnG40G2

Annette Bening has joined Christoph Waltz and Vanessa Redgrave in the crime drama “Georgetown.” The film, which is shooting in Canada, marks Waltz’s directorial debut.
The project, based on the New York Times Magazine article by Franklin Foer, centers on Albrecht Muth (played by Waltz), an eccentric social climber who seduced and married a wealthy older widow, Viola Drath, portrayed by Redgrave. Muth and Drath entered the top political circles as they threw lavish events, with Muth lying extensively about his background — which came to light after Drath was found murdered in 2011 at their home in Georgetown.
Muth was 26 when he married the 71-year-old Drath in 1990. He was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to 50 years

And while those two conflicts have dominated the genre of late, everything from the Civil War to the Battle of Red Cliffs has found powerful expression onscreen. Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” tells us that “war is a drug,” and the films below suggest that movies about war are just as addictive — maybe even more so.
Take an incredible cast, including a supporting role from Hollywood legend Harvey Keitel, a war story inspired by actual events that is as audacious as it is incredible, mix it in with stunning production values and thrilling set pieces, and you have Jasmin Dizdar’s Chosen.
A powerful and haunting testament to the human spirit, a portrait of humanity in the depths of war that is brilliantly evoked, thrillingly effective and frighteningly prescient.

Fifteen years before Stranger Things combined science-fiction, Spielberg-ian touches and 80s nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the template – and the high-water mark – with his debut feature.
Described by its director as “The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick”, Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast – pre-stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze, former child star Drew Barrymore, Oscar nominees Mary McDonnell and Katherine Ross, and television favourite Noah Wyle – and an evocative soundtrack of 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran.
This brand-new 4K restoration, supervised by Richard Kelly, allows a modern classic to finally receive the home video treatment it deserves.

In an interview with Leandra Medine of the Man Repeller, Paltrow dishes on the difficulty of adhering to a strict diet all the time. “I try to eat organic food when I can, eat local food when I can, and eat as little processed food as possible,” she says, “but sometimes you need a bag of Doritos and a beer in an airport.”
Medine also asks her if she “drinks a lot,” to which Paltrow responds affirmatively.
