Yesterday was Ghostbusters Day, and to celebrate the casts of both the 1984 classic and this year’s reboot came together on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
For some reason, the posting of the videos on YouTube pretend the arrival of the original Ghostbusters cast during an interview with the new Ghostbusters cast was some kind of surprise, even though we found out about it in advance. Anyway, the two casts get together to talk about the reboot and the legacy of the original Ghostbusters.
Plus, Bill Murray throws his full support behind the reboot and explains why he finally chose this project to come back to the Ghostbusters franchise. If you think that’s just because he’s shilling for the studio, he actually gives some very honest thoughts about the film that might quell some of the fears of naysayers out there.

There are some Ghostbusters fans who just aren’t happy with the reboot coming this summer from director Paul Feig. Most of the hesitancy to embrace the movie comes from the love for the 1984 original or the impression they’re getting from the trailers so far, which has been hit or miss on the comedy front. But there is an uglier side of fandom (though it’s certainly not all or even most of them) who just don’t like the idea of four women leading a Ghostbusters movie. But did you know France already remade Ghostbusters with women?
All right, this Ghostbusters remake wasn’t a major motion picture sanctioned by the government. Instead, film student Jessica Louvel and her fellow students put together a sweded Ghostbusters for France’s Université Lumière Lyon 2 about a year and a half ago.

It’s Ghostbusters Day! Today marks exactly 32 years since the original Ghostbusters hit theaters in 1984. In addition to the theatrical screenings happening around the country tonight, a new featurette from the reboot has just arrived, giving us a much closer look at the update Ecto-1, which is now a hearse instead of an old ambulance.
There aren’t any big revelations about the car, but we do get to see a little more details of the signature vehicle from the movie as well as some footage of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones driving around in it. However, what you’ll really want to pay attention to are the snippets of the new Ghostbusters theme by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliot towards the end.

We’re just a month and a half away from seeing if director Paul Feig can deliver an entertaining reboot of the classic Ghostbusters. Many have already written off the film while others are holding out hope that the film is much better than the early trailers have indicated. From my perspective, the broad style of comedy is a little worrisome, but the film also has a lot of style and cool visuals. But I’m still hoping for the best.
Now that hope has been bolstered somewhat thanks to original Ghostbusters creator and star Dan Aykroyd taking the time to praise the film following a test screening. In fact, he even says that it one-ups the original in some regards. Read the Dan Aykroyd Ghostbusters reaction after the jump along with Melissa McCarthy’s reaction to the ongoing backlash the film is facing from fans. Read More »
Nearly two weeks ago, Dwayne Johnson teased a new project that would having him teaming up with Iron Man 3 and The Nice Guys director Shane Black in 2017. The project was not specifically named, but since Black is beginning production on his new Predator movie later this year, we assumed that Johnson would be leading the long-gestating big screen adaptation of the pulp hero Doc Savage.
Now we have official confirmation of Dwayne Johnson as Doc Savage thanks to a new Instagram post that features him alongside Shane Black as well as writers Anthony Bagarozzi & Chuck Mondry and producer Hiram Garcia, the vice president of production at Johnson’s own Seven Bucks Productions.

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s new Ghostbusters trailer, an international trailer has debuted online, and it shows a bunch of new footage that we haven’t seen yet. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones can be seen kicking some major ghost tail, but we also get to see them trying out the proton stream as a method of catching ghosts for the first time. Plus, we get to see more of just how dimwitted Chris Hemworth’s character really is.
