Superbad trivia

It’s hard to believe, but yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of the theatrical release of Greg Mottola‘s Superbad, the high school comedy that launched the careers of up-and-coming actors like Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, and Emma Stone.

To celebrate the occasion, Seth Rogen – who co-wrote the movie with Evan Goldberg and co-starred as Officer Michaels – took to Twitter to share some Superbad trivia with fans, revealing the inspirations for many of the movie’s funniest scenes and drawing a strange connection between the film and the MTV reality show Jersey Shore.

Riz Ahmed - Carnage - Venom Cast

Sony Pictures is getting their Spider-Man franchise spin-off Venom ready to go. Tom Hardy has been attached to the project as the title character for some time now, and Gangster Squad director Ruben Fleischer will be behind the camera for the film that is said to have no ties to the Spider-Man played by Tom Holland in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now the supporting cast is starting to fill out.

Ghostbusters Extended Cut

It’s kind of amazing that Mike Stoklasa‘s creation of RedLetterMedia and the character of Harry S. Plinkett has lasted so long after first finding viral fame for a seven-part takedown of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace back in 2009. But the internet is full of plenty of wackier things, and despite the fact that this character is supremely annoying to listen to, his video reviews do make plenty of valid points, even if they are combined with some really lame attempts at humor.

While Star Wars has become a prime target for Harry S. Plinkett, every now and then he turns his attention to a movie that garnered a lot of attention from passionate fans and viewers. The Ghostbusters reboot from 2016 (or Ghostbusters: Answer the Call as it’s more officially titled) was certainly one of those movies, and even though it’s been over a year since it was released and most of us have moved on, Harry S. Plinkett has a one-hour takedown and breakdown of the film directed by Paul Feig. Read More »

Sixth Scale Ghostbusters Ecto-1

Almost a year ago, you might remember we called attention to a new series of sixth scale Ghostbusters figures from a company called Blitzway. They’re some of the most amazing figures every created based on the paranormal investigators played by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson, complete with the most accurate likenesses of each of the actors. Now they get their own ride to cruise around in too.

Blitzway is following up their collectible figure line with a sixth scale Ecto-1. That’s right, the company has created an Ecto-1 collectible vehicle that is big enough to fit all four of the sixth scale figures comfortably, including a screen accurate area in the back of the customized, vintage ambulance to hold their proton packs.

Check out the incredible sixth scale Ghostbusters Ecto-1 below and see how amazing this thing really is. Read More »

Dubai Ghostbusters Ride

A few years back, we highlighted a Ghostbsuters ride that was never built called The Hauntington Hotel, for Six Flags theme parks. Partially inspired by The Haunted Mansion, it would have been the first interactive video game/theme park ride. Sadly, we haven’t really got the Ghostbusters ride we deserved, but MotionGate Dubai has come close with a ride that looks similar to what the original Ghostbusters ride would have been.

Check out a walkthrough of the Dubai Ghostbusters ride below. Read More »

Rough Night Trailer

The premise of Lucia Aniello’s Rough Night is fairly simple. Jess (Scarlett Johansson) is getting married, so for her bachelorette party, she and her best friends head out to Miami. There’s her college roommate, Alice (Jillian Bell); former item and now polar opposites, Blair (Zoe Kravitz) and Frankie (Ilana Glazer); and Jess’s friend from her semester abroad in Australia, Pippa (Kate McKinnon), all ready to relive the old glory days. They get drunk, they get wild, and when a stripper ends up dead, they scramble to cover it up. If this sounds like the set-up of two different movies, that’s because it is; while there are parts of Rough Night that stand out for hitting the rough patches of friendship on the nose, there’s not enough in between them to quite hold it all together.

Ghostbusters Reboot Trailer

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters: Answer the Call didn’t perform quite as well as the folks at Sony would have liked last year, leading original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd to call Feig out in a big way a few days ago and cast doubt on a sequel. But original Ghostbusters director and Aykroyd’s Ghost House Pictures partner Ivan Reitman apparently doesn’t have the same doom and gloom outlook, because in a new interview, he discusses his idea for the future of Ghostbusters.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Unearthed

I’m a fan of Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman, but we’ve been writing so much about him lately that I’m almost sick of seeing the dude’s name. But when you’re one of Hollywood’s most in-demand filmmakers, “being too prolific” is likely a problem he’s happy to have.

Last year, the director was flirting with the possibility of directing a film adaptation of a forthcoming young adult novel called Unearthed, which was described as “Indiana Jones meets Tomb Rader, in space.” Now Liman is officially attached, and the project has secured a couple of writers to boot.
