Ghostbusters Sequel - Paul Feig

Shortly after Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters hit theaters, one executive at Sony Pictures had no doubt that a sequel to the movie would come together. However, the tune behind the scenes appeared to change drastically about a month later as the theatrical release was winding down, and the box office numbers were not as high as the studio had hoped. A sequel was not looking likely.

At the time, one estimate indicated that Ghostbusters would need to make $300 million to break even, while another source said that estimation was way off and didn’t take into consideration all the money earned from “consumer products, gaming, location-based entertainment, continued international rollout, and huge third-party promotional partnerships.” Well, the movie ended up raking in just over $229 million at the box office, and while the call for a Ghostbusters reboot sequel hasn’t been made, Paul Feig is still hopeful that it will happen.

uncharted movie

The long-gestating film adaptation of the popular (and for good reason) Uncharted video game series has been a revolving door of talent for years now. Cycle through the /Film archives and you’ll find writers and directors boarding and exiting the project with a frequency that boggles the mind. Despite its inherently cinematic premise, Uncharted has proven itself to be a tough nut to crack.

But maybe this is the point where things start to look up! Maybe this is the point in the timeline where Uncharted stops shuffling around development hell and starts to take shape! And if so, the timing couldn’t be better, because screenwriter Joe Carnahan is saying all of the right things about what he’s trying to do with his script.

amazing spider-man questions

Only a few years after release, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have already begun to recede into the background. When someone gets around to writing that book about the history of modern superhero movies, they will probably feel more like footnotes that inform the existence of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man than anything else.

But there is one person who will be fielding Spider-Man questions for the rest of his life and that person is Andrew Garfield, who played Peter Parker twice for director Marc Webb. Garfield has been very gracious about his time as Spidey and complimentary toward Holland’s casting, but in a new interview, he implies what we’ve always suspected – the overall game plan for the Amazing Spider-Man movies was a little half-baked.

Inferno Review

Inferno is similar to Ron Howard‘s past Dan Brown adaptations, The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons. Again, there’s top-tier talent both in front of and behind the camera, but the final result doesn’t reach the level of quality we typically expect from Howard and Tom Hanks. Their latest collaboration is held back by some tedious exposition, repetitive foot chases, some underwhelming twists and turns, and one sorely underused talented actor.

Kate McKinnon's Ghostbusters Outtakes

Ghostbusters just arrived on home video last week, and it came with the extended cut of the film that wasn’t seen in theaters. Word on the street is that the extra 15 minutes put back into the movie actually fixes many of the plot holes that remained in the theatrical cut, and it just might be worth watching. It probably won’t change the minds of those who flat out hated the theatrical cut already, but there you have it.

Now that the film is on home video, some of the outtakes are making their way online. There are actually two gag reels and six alternate take reels available in the special features, showing that Paul Feig shot a lot of footage for this movie. They’re all worth watching for some laughs, but easily the best one out of all of them are Kate McKinnon‘s Ghostbusters outtakes. They’re wacky, wonderful and just pure improvisational magic. Watch them below! Read More »
