in Non-Fiction by

Rose McGowan has been very vocal in addressing sexual harassment in Hollywood, and specifically, against Harvey Weinstein, whom she says assaulted her in a hotel room in 1997.

As with most trailers, the cuts are quick, the action is lightning-fast, and you are compelled to watch it over and over and over again (Holy crap—it’s Black Panther! No!
