This week on Secrets of the Sire we look at the controversies behind two summer tent poles: the all-female Ghostbusters that opened this week and George Takei’s surprising comments surrounding the announcement that John Cho’s character Sulu will be gay in the new Star Trek Beyond film out the 22nd of July.
