How Carrie Fisher Took Revenge on the Studio Executive Who Sexually Harassed Her Friend

There’s a lot to miss about the late, incomparably great Carrie Fisher: Her delightful screen presence, her sharp contributions to screenwriting, her brilliant wit and unapologetic candor, and her advocacy for those suffering from mental health problems and addiction. She was, for lack of a better word, a badass. And the legend of her awesomeness lives on through those who loved her, like Heather Ross — a screenwriter and friend of Fisher’s, who recently shared an amazing story about the time she was sexually harassed by a studio executive, and the artist occasionally known as Princess General Leia exacted revenge on her behalf.

Sorry, Fam: ‘Fast and Furious 9’ Was Just Pushed Back a Whole Year to 2020

You might need a Corona (or six) to deal with this news, fam. Universal has pushed the release of Fast and Furious 9 (or whatever they end up calling it) back from 2019 to 2020 — meaning you’ll now have to wait an extra, whole year to see the continuation of Dom & Co.’s epic automotive action soap opera. Although no reason for the delay was given, I have to assume Universal needs more time to come up with a title, and “9” isn’t exactly the most generous number to work with. Fast 9 Furious? Fast 9? The 9 Lives of the Furious? It’s kind of a problem.

Austin Mayor Responds to Women-Only ‘Wonder Woman’ Screening Hate Mail With a Glorious Sick Burn

It was the Facebook post that launched a thousand (give or take) s— fits. When the Alamo Drafthouse announced a special women-only screening of Wonder Woman, the outrage from misogynist bros was swift, immediate and entirely insane, with many bizarrely labeling the event “sexist.” But those toxic reactions didn’t quite have the intended effect and only made the screening more popular among women, spurring the Drafthouse to turn it into a national event, much to the chagrin of all those whiny sexist internet trolls — including one particularly angry man who decided it might be more effective to bypass theater management entirely and take his complaints straight to the mayor of Austin, Texas.

‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Gets an Official Release Date

When Lucasfilm initially announced Star Wars: Episode IX, the tentative plan was to release it in theaters on May 23, 2019 — that date was never confirmed, however, and when the studio shifted their releases to December (with the exception of the young Han Solo spinoff), everyone just assumed that it was only a matter of time before Episode IX’s release date was changed, too. That’s definitely not the case, as Disney and Lucasfilm have announced a metric Jabba-ton of new release dates, officially confirming the final film in their Star Wars trilogy for May 24, 2019.

Netflix may be giving us Captain America: Civil War on Christmas (and many more great additions next month), but there are also several titles expiring from the service in December, including — gasp — every season of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Okay, you might not be all that concerned about Kevin Sorbo’s biceps, but chances are there’s at least one or two things on this list of expiring movies and TV shows that you’ll probably want to watch before they leave Netflix next month.
