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.

Is The Flash really the ‘the greatest superhero movie ever’?
Ezra Miller begins to run in The Flash.

There have been a lot of trends in 2023 that have annoyed me: AI-generated images and parody trailers, Pete Davidson dating yet another otherworldly beautiful woman, pretending the fictional protagonist of the movie Tár is actually a real woman, etc. But none have quite pissed me off as much as the periodic hailing of Warner Bros. Discovery's big summer tentpole film, The Flash, as "the greatest superhero movie of all time."

Like most of this year's trends, this actually started in 2022, but really became irksome this year, as WBD pushed the narrative that The Flash is a must-see event due to its unseen-by-many high quality. Is The Flash the greatest superhero movie ever? I, of course, can't judge myself as it's not even out yet, but a select group of people has, and WBD has been relentless in letting everyone know their high appraisal of the movie. But why should we trust their opinion? Is The Flash the real deal, a DCEU movie that's actually excellent, or is this just another elaborate marketing scheme designed to mask not only star Ezra Miller's recent troubles with the law, but also the fact that the movie isn't that great?
