    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker's final trailer suggests that C-3PO will die in the final installment of the Skywalker saga. One of the original characters to appear in George Lucas' original Star Wars trilogy, C-3PO is an iconic staple of the franchise's lore - both in canon and in Legends. Anthony Daniels has portrayed the character in each movie and across multiple mediums for over four decades, and his time as the character is coming to an end in J.J. Abrams' newest film.

    Here at NewsBusters, we have a love/hate relationship with the CBS drama God Friended Me. It can be a faith-friendly show with positive messages, but, like all network television, it has also included a left-wing LGBT agenda. But this Sunday’s episode, “All Those Yesterdays,” proved again why God Friended Me has landed on our “nice” list in the past. When new character Joy (Jessica Lu) joined the “God account” team this season, we learned that she had placed a child in a closed adoption at age 16. The audience discovered a few weeks ago that Joy arrived in New York...

    Ang Lee's action thriller — starring Will Smith — was sidelined by bad reviews and the staying power of 'Joker.' Not even an Oscar-winning director and one of the world's most popular actors could save Gemini Man from getting bumped off at the box office. Ang Lee's VFX-heavy film, starring Will Smith, faces losses of $75 million or more after opening to $20.5 million domestically over the Oct. 11-13 frame and finishing Sunday with an anemic worldwide total of $118.7 million, according to sources and box office analysts. Hopes were high that Gemini Man would make up ground and open...

    Abortion has been a surprisingly popular topic on television this week. New Amsterdam, Bull, and Empire have all openly referenced, debated, or supported the right to kill an unborn child. Now NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is joining the pack with a plot focused entirely around abortion. The October 17 episode “The Burden of Our Choices” follows the SVU investigating a 13-year-old runaway named Evangeline (Kira McLean). Evangeline comes from a fundamentalist Christian family (because, of course) in Ohio, but after her stepfather rapes her (another easy trope), she escapes to New York to have an abortion due...

    [snip] “But look at all those cameras. That’s like the Academy Awards used to be before it failed. You know why it failed? You know why it failed?” Trump asked his supporters. “Because they came after us. That’s why it failed. It failed because they had stupid people saying horrible things about us. Stupid, stupid people,” Trump continued, noting that their ratings have “dropped like a rock” — something he loves seeing. “They are stupid people, and their ratings have dropped like a rock and I love seeing it, I’m telling you. Love it,” Trump said. “But no matter how...

    Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Helen Hunt is recovering following a car crash in Los Angeles. People confirmed Hunt, 56, was hospitalized Wednesday after she was involved in a car crash on the corner of San Vicente and Tremaine Avenue. TMZ said Hunt was riding in the back seat of a black SUV that was T-boned by another car in the intersection. The impact flipped Hunt's vehicle onto its side. Sources said Hunt was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills. She was spotted leaving the hospital in a white truck a few hours after the crash. Hunt's rep said...

    South Park's newest episode, "Let Them Eat Goo" which aired Wednesday, mocks LeBron James and his lack of defense of free speech in the current crisis of Hong Kong against China. The episode concentrates on diets and plant-based foods, and on the students at South Park's public school who are protesting the unhealthy food they are being fed, especially meat from animals. A small group of protestors manages to convince the school to start serving healthy food, and when Eric Cartman discovers this he hyperventilates to the point of needing a defibrillator because he wants meat. After he is discharged...

    Modern Family has always dismissed the critical role of a mother with its gay male couple raising a daughter. It has also inserted feminist talking points in the past. In this week’s episode, “Pool Party,” on October 15, the show highlighted two incoherent premises of the feminist left: Corporations are “corrupt and mercenary,” but women should leave their babies to work for them or they will “resent [their] children.” The episode begins with mother Claire (Julie Dunphy) lunching at a restaurant with her grown daughters, Haley (Sarah Hyland) and Alex (Ariel Winter). Claire is trying to convince Haley to return...

    It seems The View hosts just can’t get over their Clinton crush. Every time Chelsea or Hillary appears on The View, they beg them to run for office. On Wednesday’s show, Chelsea Clinton stopped by for the second time in two weeks to talk about this and rave over last night’s Democratic debate. As Clinton sat down, she was immediately asked if she was running for Congress, (which she denied.) Co-host Sunny Hostin gushed, “Why not?!” while fellow co-host Abby Huntsman wanted to know “Do you think you ever will?” Finally Clinton conceded it was possible, saying, “I don’t know”...
  • ‘Empire’ Lectures ‘Nothing Christian’ About ‘Horrors’ of ‘Being Denied’ Abortion

    Apparently, Fox’s Empire wasn’t finished lecturing us about abortion. The October 15 episode “Tell the Truth” decides to take everything they said about “pro-life” beliefs and make it worse. This time, Christians and pro-life women are the ones to pay. As you may recall from a couple of weeks earlier, one of Empire Entertainment’s leading performers Tiana (Serayah) was part of a small scandal after posting “All life is precious” on her Instagram account in response to the difficult birth of Andre’s (Trai Byers) son. Somehow, those words were enough to anger her pro-abortion fans. Sadly, this is what constitutes...

    Deputies shot and killed a man suspected of fatally stabbing a woman at the California home of "Tarzan" actor Ron Ely, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office said. The sheriff's office received a call about a family dispute at the actor's home in Hope Ranch, California, on Tuesday night, Lt. Erik Raney told CNN. When deputies arrived, they found an elderly woman dead from apparent stab wounds, Raney said. The victim's husband, whose speech was impeded because of a medical condition, said that another family member was involved in the stabbing, Raney said.

    mrcNEWSBUSTERS ^ | October 8, 2019 | Lindsay Kornick
    Unfortunately for us, Fox’s Empire seems to have more to say about politics than its hatred for Donald Trump. Even worse, it involves targeting and lecturing the supposedly "anti-choice," "pro-birth" mindset of pro-lifers. With this being the final season, I guess the show doesn’t care who it attacks anymore. The October 8 episode “You Broke Love” features a small scandal surrounding Tiana (Serayah), one of Empire Entertainment’s biggest stars. You see, Empire’s owner Andre (Trai Byers) recently had a harrowing experience where he nearly lost his wife and son during childbirth. By miracle, both survived, and Tiana congratulated the family...

    The industry's genial sex fixer — who claimed to arrange liaisons for everyone from Rock Hudson to Bette Davis — challenged Golden Age Hollywood's baseline-heterosexual conception of itself. Scotty Bowers, whose explicit, best-selling 2012 memoir revealed a covert realm of Golden Age Hollywood sexuality, died Sunday of natural causes at his home in Laurel Canyon, documentary director Matt Tyrnauer told The Hollywood Reporter. He was 96. The former U.S. Marine and gas station attendant turned erotic fixer to the stars (including, he said, Katharine Hepburn and Rock Hudson) was the subject of an acclaimed 2017 documentary, Scotty and the Secret...
