There are many among us who think the Ghostbusters reboot is but a joke. The nostalgia trippers out there who are so emotionally connected to the original films think a new version is cardinal sin. Check out the comment section of any Ghostbusters reboot article on any site and you’d think it was a war.
If you are one of the many who have taken up arms against this movie, then a cease fire is an order. The Ghostbusters cast just paid paid a visit to a children’s hospital. A moment of charity and good will has been observed. (more…)
The Ghostbusters reboot has been trickling information our way, providing little looks and teases as to what we can expect from this female-led ghost-smashing flick. People have had mixed reactions concerning things such as the new look of the proton packs or the latest incarnation of Ecto-1, but such is the fate of reboots in our day. The latest bit of information isn’t as exciting as all that, but neither is it likely to be as divisive. We now know the names of the four ladies who shall be busting said titular ghosts. Scroll on to discover exactly who is going to answer when you call the Ghostbusters. (more…)
Yesterday Paul Feig revealed the Ghostbusters reboot’s Ecto-1. Today there’s some on set video of said car in action and some additional pictures that reveal an all new vehicle for the Ghostbusters franchise: the ECTO-2. What could it be? Is it a boat.. maybe a plane… no wait, it’s gotta be a bus! Click through to find out! (more…)
You’ve got to credit director Paul Feig – even in the midst of a fairly good-sized fan backlash about his upcoming, all-female, remake-sequel-kinda-thingy Ghostbusters, he’s still willing to share some behind-the-scenes stuff from on set. After a few pictures came out recently of principal cast members Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, and Kate McKinnon shooting a couple of scenes, Feig has now given everyone a nice and clear look at the new Ghostbuster uniforms that the gal-pal quartet will be wearing in the film. Behold the photo:

It’s happening… and it looks awfully familiar.
Intrepid fans and fortuitous passers-by are starting to post the first images of scenes from the all-new, all-female Ghostbusters reboot that’s due in theaters next year. As with many a fresh take on a classic film franchise, to say that the project has met with more-than-mild opposition so far from fans would be an understatement. The fact that these first photos are speculated to show a key scene from the original film essentially being recycled is definitely not gaining director Paul Feig any more bonus points.
There used to be a time that the question “who you gonna call?” was a fairly easy one to answer. Hell, some of us even remember the number to call (555-2368)! You knew that if you had a problem with poltergeists and needed someone who was ready to believe, you called Drs. Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler, and even trusted the one member of the ‘Busters without a PhD., Winston Zeddmore. Times, they are a-changing, and earlier this year, we learned that a whole new group of Ghostbusters would be heading to the big screen without a Y-chromosome to be found. Last night, it was revealed that the “who you gonna call?” question was getting even tougher to answer, now that it’s been revealed that Sony plans on launching an entire universe around the concept. Today, we have even more details on this otherworldly expansion. (more…)
The progress of getting a new Ghostbusters film has been glacial in pace, but with Paul Feig on board to direct, and a new cast of all-female supernatural investigators and eliminators including Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones being hired, it seems that a third Ghostbusters movie might finally be a thing. But what of poor Dan Aykroyd? The star and co-writer of the original film has been the biggest cheerleader for a third film, but with the new direction under Feig it seems he’s been kind of shut out of the process. You think Aykroyd’s going to take that lying down? Nuh-uh. Despite the seeming inevitability of the Feig Ghostbusters, Aykroyd is saying that yes – *sigh* – he’s still looking to make his third Ghostbusters adventure. (more…)
Ernie Hudson has been backtracking a few of his more choice comments regarding the all Female Ghostbusters movie that Paul Feig is putting together starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. It’s not all that unexpected though, Hudson’s first public reaction to the announcement of the movie went nuts around the Internet both with support and outrage from long time fans and others. While Hudson’s initial thoughts made some great click gathering posts, I never really thought he was the kind of guy that, after reflection, would be against anything that helped revitalize the Ghostbusters franchise… or possibly provide some future work and a paycheck. What exactly did he say and how does he feel now? (more…)
For some fans of the Ghostbusters franchise the confirmation of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones no doubt gave them something to be afraid of. And with nobody to call, frustrated and disillusioned folk took to Twitter and Facebook to vent their frustrations. From detractors arguing with supporters, to feminists pointing the misogynistic finger at the reboot/re-imagining/retcon haters, to the ‘political-correctness-gone-mad’ enthusiasts using where are the *insert racial minority here* card. It’s no wonder that Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters has been the top trending subject since the announcement yesterday morning. However, the old adage that ‘the show must go on’ springs to mind, and the film is getting made whether you like it or not. Subsequently, we have some more information that will either whet your appetite or further fuel your nostalgia-induced depressive state. (more…)
