The Me Too movement begins in the first trailer for She Said

For decades, Harvey Weinstein was one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood. He was also notorious for sexually harassing and assaulting women even before his victims began breaking their silence. In 2017, Weinstein was exposed through a series of news stories in which women defied their nondisclosure agreements to expose his actions and crimes.

This spawned the #MeToo movement, and inspired the upcoming film, She Said. But in the first trailer for the movie, the greatest challenge faced by the reporters was convincing the women to speak out together in order to end Weinstein’s reign.

Weinstein’s voice is heard in the trailer, and he is seen from behind, but beyond that, he is largely off-camera in these clips. And yet his influence seems to hang over his victims even though he isn’t physically present. The trailer also introduces two of the key reporters who broke the story: Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey.

For the film, Kantor is played by Zoe Kazan (The Plot Against America), while Promising Young Woman star Carey Mulligan plays the veteran reporter, Twohey. Although Twohey wasn’t initially a part of Kantor’s investigation, she had a keen insight into what it would take to get the women to share their stories.

Patricia Clarkson co-stars in the film as Rebecca Corbett, with Brooklyn 911‘s Andre Braugher as Dean Baquet, and Samantha Morton as Zelda Perkins. Other supporting cast members include Tom Pelphrey, Adam Shapiro, Jennifer Ehle, and Peter Friedman.

Maria Schrader directed She Said from a script by Rebecca Lenkiewicz. It will hit theaters on November 18.

What’s new on HBO and Max
Daniel Craig and Judi Dench in Skyfall.

It would be nice to say that HBO and Max are offering their subscribers something nice this Christmas. But the truth is that there's not a lot to get excited about in December on Max. While it's good to see that most James Bond movies are coming to Max, it's equally disheartening that Max is undergoing yet another animation purge. Several Adult Swim series are exiting Max at the end of December, and even a few other cartoons like Beware the Batman are also leaving.

December is shaping up to be a very lackluster and disappointing month on Max. Hopefully, things will pick up in January when we officially start a new year. For now, our complete list of what's coming to HBO and Max in December is below. Titles without "HBO" in the listing will only be available on Max. DT's film and TV show recommendations are in bold.

How long will there be something new on Netflix before the effects of the writers' and actors' strikes catch up with the world's largest streamer? It's too soon to say, but we'll definitely notice a slowdown when it arrives. For now, keep checking back every Friday for our updated guide to the best shows on Netflix.

Christmas movies for people who hate Christmas movies
Two men dressed as Santa and an elf look in the same direction in Bad Santa.

There are plenty of people who love Christmas and everything that comes with it. They love the great Christmas movies they can stream, the Yule logs, the seasonal dishes, and of course, the spirit of the holiday itself. If you're someone who hates Christmas, though, or at the very least hates the cloying, overly sentimental nature of most Christmas movies, then this is the list for you.

We've gathered the least conventionally festive holiday movies ever made for those of you who want to acknowledge the season, but aren't necessarily down for all the weepies that sometimes go along with it.
