The Most Powerful Images From the Kavanaugh Protests in Washington, D.C.

Three months after President Donald Trump announced his pick for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, 53, was confirmed on Saturday after a vote that fell mainly along party lines. Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS nomination was immediately followed by protests, especially by advocates for women’s rights, who campaigned that, if elected, he would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. Though Kavanugh refused to give a direct answer during his confirmation hearing on how he would vote on the landmark ruling, his confirmation process took a major turn after Christine Blasey Ford delivered a powerful and moving testimony to the Senate Judicial Committee, detailing her allegations of sexual assault against him. Despite her accusation and those of two other women, and a weeklong FBI investigation to look into those accusations, Kavanaugh’s nomination proceeded to a final vote, which thousands of women showed up to protest in Washington, D.C.

With signs like, “Our lives are on the line” and “We believe survivors,” protestors took to the steps of the U.S. Capitol in an act of civil disobedience. Police arrested at least 164 people in Washington, D.C., reported CBS, with 150 arrested on the Capitol’s steps and 14 arrested in the Senate galleries. Those on the floor of the Senate and live-streaming the vote from home could hear their shouts and screams as Vice President Mike Pence, presiding over the vote, called repeatedly for the sergeant-at-arms to restore order.

We’ve rounded up 25 of the most powerful images from the protests—scroll through to see, below.

Twitter Users Have Very Strong Feelings About Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court Confirmation

Judge Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed on Saturday as the 114th U.S. Supreme Court Justice. The final vote was the conclusion of a weeks-long process of primary confirmation votes, hearings, and powerful testimony—particularly the testimony delivered by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault and took her allegations to the Senate floor, where she unflinchingly and bravely detailed her account to the judiciary committee.

During the confirmation vote Saturday afternoon, protestors could be heard screaming and shouting from the public gallery, with cries of “Shame! Shame! Shame!” and “I do not consent!” Thousands of other protestors surrounded the Supreme Court Building and U.S. Capitol.

Twitter users, of course, took to the platform to express their feelings after Kavanaugh’s final confirmation vote on Saturday.

There was anger…

…reminders and encouragement…

…a bit of humor…

But there was also quite a lot of hope—take, for example, this thread from filmmaker Ava DuVernay.

And finally, there was one strong message that shone through: “November is coming.” Kavanaugh’s confirmation—and nomination—seems to have raised awareness that voting in the upcoming midterm elections is more important than ever.

Another reminder? Whether you agree or disagree with Kavanaugh’s nomination, the midterms are November 6. Here’s your guide to the voter rights.

What Outlander’s New Opening Credits Tell Us About Season 4

Outlander is known for many things after three full seasons on the air, and one of those things is the always-stunning opening credits sequence. Scored with a haunting version of “The Skye Boat Song,” the credits combine clips that have been used for the opening from the very beginning with clips from the upcoming season. While the credits don’t deliver full scenes or give away everything we can expect, there are generally very big clues for the eagle-eyed viewers. Luckily for those of us dying for new Outlander content ahead of the November premiere of Season 4, the fourth season title credits have released, and they tell a fair amount about what’s to come. Take a look!

Well, if there was any doubt that Outlander would embrace the colonial American spirit, the Season 4 title credits should be proof to the contrary! The latest version of “The Skye Boat Song” is even different, sounding more folksy, including more strings, and even featuring more voices chiming in by the final lines, Notably, the drums from the credits when the show was still primarily set in Scotland are absent. They’re not in Scotland anymore!

Jamie and Claire are clearly embracing America in more ways than just its colonial spirit, The shot of their cabin in the woods looks like it’s in the middle of nowhere, meaning that they — or mostly Jamie — probably built it. Life in America will give them the chance to set down roots in a way they were never able to before, even in Lallybroch. Jamie inherited Lallybroch and his position as laird, however briefly he held it. He can build his life and legacy in America, and Claire’s knowledge of her future adopted country will surely come in handy.

Native Americans will be in the mix as well, and they may not take kindly to Jamie, Claire, and any other settlers setting up in their lands. A previous trailer indicated that there will be an area ideal for time travel known by the Native Americans, much as some of the local women knew of the standing stones at Craigh na Dun in Scotland and rumors abounded of Abandawe in the Caribbean. Given that we know Brianna will be traveling to the past, perhaps this portal of sorts will come in handy. Whether that comes to pass or not, the Native Americans will clearly have a significant presence in the new season.

Brianna looks to be at the standing stones at Craigh na Dun for her attempt to go to the past, so she probably won’t require the help of the Native Americans in reuniting with her mom and meeting her dad. Later in the credits, there’s a shot of a man with a sketchbook and a drawing of Brianna, although it’s difficult to say if that’s in 18th century Scotland or 18th century America. Depending on the source of the drawing, Brianna could be in danger.

What would an opening titles sequence for Outlander be without hints of nudity and 18th century fashion as well? Claire will have at least one occasion to tighten the corset strings in colonial America. My money is on her ditching the corset once she moves to the middle of nowhere with Jamie, but their time at Jocasta’s plantation will likely demand more of her.

It’s also evident that Outlander will spend some time in the 1960s beyond Brianna’s decision to journey to the past. The quick glimpse of men dancing in kilts with numbers attached to the fabric can only point toward Brianna on an outing with Roger. We should count on seeing him back at some point. As much as Season 4 will have to pack a lot into not a whole lot of time if Outlander wants to fit the whole fourth book in there, we can probably expect more than just a couple minutes in the 60s.

Now, if you’ve read the fourth book in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander saga or are just in the mood for some spoilers, head on over to the next page to discover a major arc that is teased in the credits. If not, prepare yourself for the premiere of Outlander Season 4, which hits the airwaves on Sunday, November 4 at 8 p.m. ET on Starz.

A Long Awaited PlayStation Feature May Finally Be On The Way

There has been one feature among many that gamers have been desperately asking for from Sony. And after years of begging, Sony has finally acquiesced and it appears as if the company might be giving gamers what they’ve been asking for regarding one particular feature for the PlayStation platforms. I’m not entirely sure why it took Sony so long to deliver the feature, but for gamers who have been begging and pleading for it, it looks like it will be coming sooner rather than later.

Kotaku is reporting that PSN name changes may be on the way. The change will enable users to change their PSN IDs into new IDs, according to the Kotaku article. The PlayStation Network name changes will reportedly be coming soon.

Supposedly, there are multiple studios working with Sony on the changes and that the changes are currently being worked on so that they will be compatible with the security and infrastructure setup of the current PlayStation Network system.

This isn’t just entirely hearsay, there were some physical forms of proof that were provided to indicate that the change was at least in development. The proof came in the form of a screenshot from an internal documentation that featured an “edit username” option and that the documentation itself was to help developers with implementing the ability to change the username of a PlayStation Network ID.

The article states that there is no time frame on when this particular feature will roll out, but that it is in the pipeline. It also mentions that there could be issues with the new change, given that PSN IDs utilize account usernames that link to the game’s user ID. As opposed to having the account ID and the in-game ID as separate identifiers. This means that there could be issues that arise where you might change your PlayStation Network ID but still have your old username when you enter into certain PSN-enabled games that relied on the old username setup.

This is presumably why multiple studios are working with Sony on the issue so that they can update and upgrade their user ID systems to fall in line with the new system that Sony has coming down the pipeline.

It’s been a long-requested feature from gamers given that Sony’s nearest competitors, including Microsoft, Valve, and Nintendo, all allow you to change your user ID when playing online. Now you know something is bad when Nintendo, of all companies, allows you to change your Nintendo Network profile name when playing online with just a few easy button presses, but Sony doesn’t.

Microsoft charges for name changes on Xbox Live, but it’s a fairly painless process to have your unique Gametag ID changed from the account settings.

Valve also allows you to change what your user display name is in Steam, even though your account ID will stay static.

If Sony finally does pull the trigger on this feature and implement the name changes, it would finally bring the company up to par with the rest of the competition.

The Barbie Movie Is Back On Track, And Margot Robbie Could Star

For Mattel Films upcoming first feature, Margot Robbie might just be the Barbie girl for their Barbie world. A live-action Barbie movie, originally starring Amy Schumer under Sony, has seen quite a few alterations. But now it’s reportedly moving forward, with Margot Robbie in talks to play the iconic plastic doll. Mattel is partnering with Warner Bros since the toymaker acquired the rights to their brand back, with Robbie also likely serving as a producing partner. The talented blonde-haired beauty certainly will seamlessly fit right into the sparkly dresses, bright heels and Malibu dream house of the popular toy.

Plans for Barbie to hit the big screen were originally announced back in 2014 by Sony. Two years later, Amy Schumer was announced to star as the titular role. The developing Barbie film would grapple with the often-manufactured ideals put on women, as Schumer would play a doll living in Barbieland who is exiled for being imperfect. However, the comedian dropped out of the film due to “scheduling conflicts” and Anne Hathaway replaced her. Earlier this year, Sony pushed the film’s release date from August 8, 2018 to May 8, 2020 before Mattel and Warner Bros. took over the film’s development. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is being eyed to direct but no concrete deals have been made.

Besides Margot Robbie’s obvious resemblance to the popular doll, the actress already has a working relationship with Warner Bros with her continuing role as Harley Quinn. Following her appearance as the DC darling in Suicide Squad in 2016, Robbie is set to reprise her role alongside some other femme fatales including Black Canary and Huntress in the upcoming Birds of Prey. She is also producing the film under her producing banner LuckyChap Entertainment, as she would if she officially strikes this deal on Barbie. Last month, Mattel announced their new film division, Mattel Films, leading them to take over the upcoming project from Sony. Mattel is following in the footsteps of their competitor Hasbro, who established Hasbro Films in 2009 to create feature films of their own based on their popular toy properties.

Considering the studio shake-up and the potential casting of Margot Robbie as Barbie, the film could be going into a different direction than the Barbie movie we heard about in 2016. By casting Amy Schumer as a fish-out-of-water Barbie, the film challenged the typical model figure found in the box of a Barbie doll and promised some discussion of breaking societal norms surrounding the doll. Robbie is more of a cookie-cutter choice for Barbie, but hopefully the film still uses an opportunity to open these discussions about women, as the doll has undergone tons of scrutiny in recent years for portraying unrealistic dimensions of the female body.

Margot Robbie can be seen next as Queen Elizabeth I alongside Saoirse Ronan in Mary Queen of Scots in theaters on December 7.

Sounds Like The Walking Dead Is Really Fleshing Out Its Characters In Season 9

Fans of The Walking Dead are preparing for a season of significant change when the show’s ninth season finally begins to unravel. The loss of the series’ lead, among other developments, marks a sea of change for the veteran zombie drama. Instead of trying to rush things, Greg Nicotero is sharing that the show will be taking its time to flesh out its characters and make room for the important stuff. Nicotero said:

The Walking Dead‘s executive producer, director, and makeup supervisor shared the revealing Season 9 tidbit with UPROXX, and that is not all he told them. Greg Nicotero also compared the show’s ninth installment to Season 2. While acknowledging the backlash that season incurred, Nicotero also pointed out that it was a pivotal one that saw the audience fall in love with Daryl and Carol. The reason being, because the show took the time.

The nuanced approach that Greg Nicotero is teasing for Season 9 hints at a return to form for the series, at a time where it will be undergoing at least one radical alteration. One particularly stands to alter how it has always been. It is a move that fans are likely to appreciate. The Walking Dead will be taking the time to give them the conversations they care about, while they can still be heard. Sadly, fans will not be able to lean in and hear from certain characters for much longer.

While Daryl will be sticking around, conversations between he and Rick, where they talk about their feelings are not long for the series. It is a bittersweet angle that could offer an intense emotional draw for fans wanting to savor the moment. Remembering the way things were before they turn to face what is and will be. The interaction between the characters has been one of the show’s appealing factors for fans.

While the drama will be taking the chance to slow down and smell the roses, it will also be gearing up for a lot of nail-biting developments, including a death. Find out how it all unfolds when The Walking Dead Season 9 premieres Sunday, October 7 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC. The zombie drama joins a slew of other series set to return and premiere this fall.

Greg Nicotero recently revealed that he directed Andrew Lincoln’s final scenes on the drama, while sharing he is still in a bit of denial over Lincoln having left it. In many ways, what Nicotero has teased sounds like the season Walking Dead fans have been waiting to see.
