WRITERS GUILD OF AMERICA ADDRESSES BACKLASH OVER NOT DENOUNCING HAMAS ATTACK IN ISRAEL: The Writers Guild of America West issued an apology on Tuesday (October 24th), after the union faced significant backlash for staying silent following the Hamas attack in Israel earlier this month. Explaining their decision, the guild wrote, “We did not, for example, make a comment after Russia invaded Ukraine, nor on terrorist attacks in Somalia, Pakistan or elsewhere. It can be an imprecise science for a labor union to pick and choose where it weighs in on both domestic and world affairs.” They added, “We are American labor leaders, aware of our limitations and humbled by the magnitude of this conflict. However, we understand this has caused tremendous pain and for that we are truly sorry.”

The film will be released in theaters on November 22nd, and it will hit the streaming platform on December 8th.
