make your own Ghostbusters ghost trap

When the reboot of Ghostbusters arrives next summer, we’ll be seeing a whole new crew of paranormal exterminators played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, and they have some cool new gear to bust ghosts too.

But nothing will ever beat the original gear that Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson used to save New York City. The proton packs are undoubtedly the most iconic part of what makes someone a Ghostbuster, but next in line is the ghost trap. And now a helpful new video shows you how to make your own Ghostbusters ghost trap. Read More »

marvel studios shakeup

Chances are, many Marvel fans don’t even know the name Ike Perlmutter. Ask people who runs Marvel Studios and the name you’ll hear will be Kevin Feige. Even Feige reports to someone, however. Since 2007, when Feige was made president of production at Marvel Studios, that someone has been Ike Perlmutter, who became CEO of Marvel Entertainment in 2005.

Things changed last week, however, as Feige managed to tweak the corporate structure at Marvel and Disney. In short, Feige now reports to Disney chief Alan Horn, while Perlmutter remains Marvel Entertainment CEO, working out of New York.

On the surface the change may seem small, but the new exec structure could have a couple of big long-range effects for Marvel movies and TV. Time will tell how big those changes will be; we’ll explore the possible ramifications of the Marvel Studios shakeup after the break.  Read More »

Hannibal season 4

Hannibal is over. Here’s a hankie to dry your tears. Oh, sorry, that one has blood on it, try this one instead. But what if… Hannibal wasn’t really over? What if there could be a movie? That’s the sort of thing that cold-hearted series creator Bryan Fuller is talking about right now, and even though that’s the sort of thing he’s been talking about for a while, fans of the departed show might be happy to know that producers are still thinking about ways to continue the story.

Fuller says in an interview that “[producer] Martha De Laurentiis is looking into financing for a feature film,” and that while the odds are low — less than 50/50 — they’re still trying to work things out. There are even more comments out there about what a fourth season might have been, too, which will give people ideas to chew on while dreaming of that movie or new mini-series or whatever.

Note that spoilers for the end of Hannibal season three follow. Read More »

Fifty Shades sequel

Update: Two weeks after this news first broke, Variety reports that Foley has been officially offered the job directing Fifty Shades Darker. Talks are reportedly beginning now. Whether this will be a two-fer deal, with Foley also set to direct the third film, remains to be seen. Original story follows.

Even as Fifty Shades of Grey was being released to theaters this past February, we knew that director Sam Taylor-Johnson wasn’t likely to be back to direct the adaptation of the sequel novel, Fifty Shades Darker. There was talk of a power play on the part of novel author E.L. James, who reportedly wanted to write the sequel script herself, the better to keep it close to the novel. The screenwriting gig for the sequel went to Niall Leonard, who is married to James, but the director’s chair for the sequel has remained open.

Now James Foley (House of Cards, Fear, Glengarry Glen Ross) has turned up as the likely Fifty Shades sequel director.

GOTG Gamora origin story

For the past month, Disney XD has been teasing its upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy animated series with origin story shorts focused on each of the Guardians. First we saw Star-Lord’s, then Groot’s, Rocket’s, and Drax’s. And now, last but certainly not least we have Gamora’s.

If you saw James Gunn’s movie, you already know her history in broad strokes: She’s the adopted daughter of Thanos, who killed the rest of her race, and she eventually decides to betray him. But the animated Gamora origin story adds more detail to that biography, and even includes a fun cameo by another Guardian. Watch the video after the jump.  Read More »
