Every Monday, the q screen panel convenes to look at big stories happening in the film and television worlds. This week, arts and entertainment writer Tina Hassannia and CBC's national entertainment reporter and film critic Eli Glasner join Tom Power to discuss recent news that several Hollywood actors and producers are threatening to stop working with 21st Century Fox as a way of protesting Fox News. Hassannia and Glasner also talk about movie theatre subscriptions and give you an update on a very strange campaign that's unfolding in the Star Wars universe.
