Ecto 1

Did you know today was Ghostbusters Day? Can’t blame you if you say you didn’t. Today, June 8th, marks the 32-year anniversary of the premiere of Ivan Reitman’s ‘Ghostbusters.’  In the original 1984 film, the Ecto-1 was a transformation of an old ambulance into the tricked-out transport for the spirit specialists. In Paul Feig‘s reboot, which debuts in almost 5 weeks, wanted to honor the classic vehicle but did a little upgrade. For the upcoming film starring Melissa McCarthy, Kirsten Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, the director opted for an upgrade… a Cadillac hearse. A newly released featurette video shows the story of this iconic car and what to expect in the film. (more…)

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is still nearly a year-and-a-half before it’s released and we already have been receiving great info for this third film in the Thor franchise. It’s been almost two weeks since the confirmation of several additions to the cast, including Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Karl Urban (Skurge), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) and Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/The Hulk confirmed to appear. That right there is a great indicator that this film will be more of a team-up film than a solo story. Now we are hearing that this movie has some great surprises lined up for fans that will further establish the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (more…)

Marvel has made a pretty heavy announcement today adding some big names to the cast of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. They have also released some beautiful new concept art featuring the new villain Hela. Thor: Ragnarok will be third outing for the Norse God’s solo flicks and fans are hoping that the third time is still the charm. With the new cast additions of Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, and Karl Urban this latest adventure is shaping up to be pretty great. (more…)

This trailer won’t change the minds of many old school Ghostbusters fans, but if this latest International trailer had been the first Ghostbusters Reboot trailer anyone saw, we might have avoided a lot of the band wagon hating that went on. The first trailers were awful, the jokes didn’t fall, the pacing was erratic, and again the jokes were just off. Paul Feig might have had a chance if he’d cut this trailer in the first place. The Question is, did Paul Feig cut this trailer? (more…)

Of course, we live in an age when the only currency in film seems to be whether there’s life for the story after the credits roll. From sequels, prequels, and spin-offs to books, video games, and TV shows, making a movie isn’t so much its own reward as a downpayment on years of profits made from all the other things you can stamp its name on. And then there’s The Huntsman: Winter’s War. It’s the epitome of these I.P.-obsessed times; a prequel and sequel to a hit film based on a fairy tale, and at once trying to attract old fans while attracting new ones by shaking things up just enough. And thus it fails on many levels.  (more…)

Re-imagining nostalgic nerd films 30 years after the fact is always a bold move and Ghostbusters seems to be making one heck of a gambit with its audience. Whatever you opinion on the new film is, you have to agree that Sony‘s promotional campaign seems to be pulling all the stops in an effort to back it up. Its recently released international trailer seems to be taking things in a new direction, giving more screen-time for another much-vaunted cast member…

Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters reboot has continued to chug along, whether fans wanted it to or not.

This latest release of cast pictures that features the first look at Chris Hemsworth‘s character Kevin, no last name yet, the nerdy looking secretary. (more…)

This week brought us a much anticipated sneek peak of the new all-female band of ghostbusters appearing in the upcoming film of the same name.  They look fierce, capable and ready to put those sleek and updated proton packs to good use.  The girls are part of the trend of female-driven action flicks that has been (finally) sweeping Hollywood.  So who are these new ghostbusters?  Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Kristen Wiig.  We know this, yes, but until now, we didn’t know much else.  Director Paul Feig has just released some tidbits about each of his leading ladies, in time with some up close and personal posters that showcase a little of each ghostbuster’s individual personality.

Thor‘s been the red-headed stepchild of Avengers movies for a while now. Iron Man broke the box office, and fan excitement pushed the next Captain America movie into earlier than expected development, but ask if anyone wants more Thor and you get a less than enthusiastic, “Meh,” to the idea. Hence the nearly four year wait between The Dark World and RagnarokThe phrase “shake things up” seems apropos to Ragnarok’s development. Marvel hired Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) to direct, Mark Ruffalo has been brought in to give the God of Thunder a fellow Avenger to play off of, and now a new screenwriter has been hired to rework what’s been done so far.  (more…)

Ragnarok

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Thor in particular, are furiously nodding their heads in agreement. Chris Hemsworth recently shared his exciting vision for the future of Thor: Ragnarok and it has fans of the mighty Avenger saying, “Verily, we shall align our cause with yours and charge forth with you into the third installment of your flowery speech-saturated franchise, Chris, He-who-is…Worthy of… uh, Being-Hemmed…” (more…)
