This Week In Trailers: The Brink, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, One Nation Under Stress, Watergate

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we revisit the 2018 midterms, understand why we’re dying younger, give in to an incredible vision, and dissect a crime that took dow...

Bannon Gives ‘War Horse’ Pelosi A 10/10 Job Performance Rating

Nancy Pelosi has an unexpected fan. Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist, graded the House speaker a 10 out of 10 on her job performance so far in a clip of the show “The Circus.” “She’s a war horse,” he said. “For what she’s trying to accomplish, I think Pelosi’s done a good job.” He applauded her recent impeachment comments as the perfect way to step back unless the political winds shift and the American public gets on board with ousting President Donald Trump from office.

Ross Won’t Disclose What White House Convos He Had About Census Citizenship

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday declined to elaborate on what conversations he may have had with the White House about adding a Census citizenship question —  beyond detailing his previously-known spring 2017 phone call with then-Trump advisor Steve Bannon.

Contacts With Wikileaks, Julian Assange During 2016 Campaign

During the 2016 electoral cycle, Wikileaks released two major caches of emails allegedly stolen by Russian hackers: emails from the Democratic National Committee, released in July, and the contents of John Podesta’s email account, released in October. The timing of both releases — and court filings from the Mueller investigation — have stoked speculation that the Trump campaign had inside knowledge of Wikileaks’ plans. Public statements by GOP operative Roger Stone that he was in touch with A...

Attempts To Secure Trump Tower Moscow Deal During 2016 Campaign

While trying to develop a Trump Tower in the Russian capital, Trump may have stumbled into a historically large conflict of interest.
