We’re heading into the final two weeks of promotion leading up to the release of Paul Feig‘s new Ghostbusters. Companies like Lyft are getting in on the fun by offering a fans a chance to get a ride in the new Ecto-1 and you should keep an eye out for Twinkies with key lime slime cream inside them. And now two new videos offer a couple different glimpses at the movie.
First up, a new Ghostbusters gadgets featurette focuses on the new gadgets and technology, from the updated proton packs and ghost traps to all-new gadgets like proton grenades and a “ghost shotgun” and more. Then after you’re done checking out the gadgets, get a small taste of what it’s like to wield some of that new tech with a sneak peek at the Ghostbusters VR experience from The Void.

Even though I was one of the few people who didn’t flat out hate the Fall Out Boy cover of the Ghostbusters theme that debuted last week, I’ll be the first to admit that it doesn’t constitute good music. At the same time, the original theme is only beloved because it’s soaked in nostalgic love for the original movie, because Ray Parker Jr.’s signature tune is not good music either. But that’s neither here nor there, because now we have a Japanese Ghostbusters theme cover that delivers the perfect contemporary update of the original song, complete with choreographed proton pack dancing and more.

In what has essentially become a more deadly, less entertaining version of National Treasure, the adaptations of Dan Brown‘s book series following symbologist Robert Langdon continues this fall with Inferno. Back in the lead role is Tom Hanks, but this time his character has a little bit of a problem: he’s lost part of his memory.
A new international Inferno trailer finally lays out this important plot detail after all the previous teases of the movie left it out. Thankfully, despite this handicap, Langdon still has all those years he spent in school to help him decipher codes and puzzles created for him to stop a plague, but there are some key pieces of information he seems to have lost after an accident.

With aliens invading Earth again this weekend in Independence Day: Resurgence (our review of the insanity that Roland Emmerich put together is coming soon), there’s no better time to look at the exciting alien invasion that could have been in last years Pixels.
The folks over at Screen Junkies have put together an Honest Trailer tackling Adam Sandler‘s last theatrical release before he started pumping hot garbage into your Netflix queue, and as expected, they have a good ole time talking about just how badly Happy Madison ruined what could have been a really cool movie.

With just three weeks left until the new Ghostbusters hits theaters, plenty of TV spots are started to hit the air, trying to pull in as many moviegoers as possible. There’s no doubt the movie is going to make some bank in its opening weekend, but will it be the hit that Sony Pictures hopes it will be?
As a huge fan of the original Ghostbusters, I want to see a new franchise succeed, but the more footage of the comedy from the movie I see, the more worried I get. These new Ghostbusters TV spots don’t do much to assuage those fears, and that’s coming from someone who really likes the work Paul Feig has done. Having said that, the action, visuals, gadgets and more all look outstanding.

We all knew that a new version of the Ghostbusters theme was coming for the reboot hitting theaters this summer, but for the longest time, we didn’t know who would be behind it. Not too long ago it was revealed that punk pop band Fall Out Boy would be the primary artist on the track with Missy Elliott featured, presumably providing some kind of rap interlude. Now you can hear it for yourself.
Fall Out Boy has shared the full new Ghostbusters theme song online, and it’s honestly not too bad. It doesn’t compare to the old version, but it’s just a funky update of the original song. However, it does lose the signature “I ain’t afraid of no ghost” refrain from the original song and substitutes a variation on that line instead. Read More »
In just under a month, we’ll see if the new Ghostbusters have what it takes to lead a whole new franchise, one that supposedly has a narrative that is completely independent of the first two movies. But if you have kids who are too young to watch either the new movie or the 1984 original, there will be a way to tell them the story of the two paranormal comedies without scaring the daylights out of them.
Coming this fall, Penguin Random House will release Little Golden Book versions of both the original Ghosbusters and the reboot hitting theaters this summer. Each book, written by John Sazaklis, has some incredible illustrations by Alan Baston, resembling the classic books that we all grew up with for years.

The reboot of Ghostbusters is just under a month away, and Sony Pictures will see if they have a viable new franchise on their hands. Hopefully even the naysayers will give this movie a chance simply so they can have an opinion substantiated by seeing the movie instead of just bashing it based on the trailers. If the box office numbers turn out well, we’ll obviously be looking at Ghostbusters sequels, and Melissa McCarthy is ready to answer the call as many times as the phone rings.

Fans of both Ghostbusters and LEGO had their wildest dreams come true earlier this year when an official set for the firehouse that acts as the paranormal exterminators’ headquarters was released. It was a massive (and expensive) set, and having bought and built it myself, I can tell you it was one of the most fun sets to put together. But the new Ghostbusters headquarters should have their own LEGO set too, right?
We already know there’s an official LEGO set of the new Ecto-1 on the way, featuring minifigures of all four of the new Ghostbusters, as well as their secretary Kevin, who comes with the Ecto-2 motorcycle, and even a demon ghost. But LEGO fans need a set that will house the reboot’s vehicle, and one master builder has them covered with a new project at LEGO Ideas.
