Ashley Judd may continue her lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein
The lawsuits and accusations against Harvey Weinstein do not stop. Actress Ashley Judd sued him for exercising power over her career when he invited her to his hotel room in the mid-1990s. The lawsuit had been cut because at the moment the actress was not an employee of the producer, so she was not necessarily in a subordinate relationship. However, this week Judd's lawyer convinced the jury to continue the lawsuit arguing that Weinstein's position as a recognized producer put him in a position of power over any young actress.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show is investigated for being, perhaps, a toxic work environment
It is perhaps one of the most watched shows in America and it is currently being researched to explore the work environment and make sure it is a friendly one.

Historic agreement between Universal Pictures and AMC
This week a landmark agreement was released that could change the dynamics of film distribution. It is an agreement between Universal Pictures and AMC, one of the largest movie theater chains. The agreement is that Universal Pictures and Focus Productions productions will be screened in AMC theaters for 17 days, including weekends, and will then be available for distribution by these rooms at a premium price on demand. This agreement could be a precedent for others between producers and distributors of film productions in the midst of these changing times.
