Ghostbusters Potato Head

Ray Stantz insulted the ghoul known as Slimer in the original Ghostbusters by calling him an ugly little spud, just before he goes out of his way to slime Peter Venkman. But now it’s the Ghostbusters’ turn to be little spuds, because PPW Toys has just announced a couple new Mr. Potato Head toys inspired by Ghostbusters. One suits up Mr. Potato Head in the classic jump suit and equips him with a proton pack and neutrino wand while the other is dressed up as Mr. Stay Puft.

Jump Street Men In Black

UPDATE: Sony announced at CinemaCon that the title of the Jump StreetMen in Black crossover will be MIB 23.

Our original story from March 4, 2016 follows.

One of the biggest surprises to come out of the 2014 Sony hack (at least for our purposes) was the news that the studio was considering merging two of its franchises, 21 Jump Street and Men in Black. It seemed like a wild idea at the time, but now it’s actually happening. James Bobin (The MuppetsAlice Through the Looking Glass) is in early talks to helm the movie, which will bring back 21 Jump Street‘s Channing Tatum and Jonah HillRead More »

UPDATE: At CinemaCon, Tom Holland confirmed that the title of the upcoming Spider-Man solo movie would be Spider-Man: Homecoming, adding that “it really is a homecoming” for the character. Sony’s Tom Rothman said the title was “obviously” a high school reference, so it seems to fit with the John Hughes vibe we’ve heard about before. Holland says that throughout the story Peter Parker is really trying to find where he belongs. Check out the logo below:

Ryan Reynolds keeps getting busier and busier. Following the massive success of Deadpool — and let’s not forget his excellent performance in Mississippi Grind — the actor is very in demand at the moment. Reynolds currently has the sci-fi thriller Life lined up, which was co-written by Deadpool scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, and a fall shoot for the Deadpool sequel is likely.

Final Girls Screening

Even though services like The Screening Room are looking to bring theatrical movies into your home, there are plenty of movie fans who understand that the movie theater can still be the most magical place to see a theater. There’s just something special about seeing a movie with the right crowd and having a whole community of strangers being entertained by the flickering images on the big screen.

Watching movies at home on Netflix may be fun, but we can’t let the movie theater experience go by the wayside, especially when it can be the coolest way to discover a movie that you might have missed the first time around. That’s exactly what’s happening with Todd Strauss-Schulson‘s horror comedy The Final Girls.

The Final Girls came and went last year without much pomp and circumstance, despite a slew of great reviews and festival buzz from South by Southwest. But in recent months, it’s starting to become a cult classic, and it’s a modern flick that’s keeping the magic of the midnight movie alive in really fun ways. And if you’re in New York City, you can partake in this special occasion. Plus, check out some incredible guerrilla street art hidden around the city promoting the special midnight screening of The Final Girls below. Read More »

the last of us movie

Few developers make video games as inherently cinematic as Naughty Dog. The Uncharted series is the closest the electronic gaming medium has ever come to reaching the pulpy heights of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The Last of Us is one of the best games I’ve ever played, a terrifying post-apocalyptic tale that poses a number of difficult questions without offering easy answers. These are smart, character-driven games filled with exciting action beats and powered by stories that carry weight. In the right hands, they’d make for great movies.

But both of these games have had a rough go in the Hollywood landscape and the latest piece of news isn’t going to make fans feel any better about these cinematic adaptations. Uncharted is still charging toward a release date without a compass and The Last of Us appears to be dead in the water.

Will Ferrell is heading back to the North Pole. No, it’s not for an Elf sequel — he’s set to star in a new Sony picture about a group of six middle-aged men who strike out on a snowy Arctic adventure. But if you prefer to imagine he’ll swing by and say hi to Papa Elf while he’s up there, go ahead. I know that’s what I’m doing.  Read More »

Ghostbusters Reboot Connected

When the first trailer for the Ghostbusters reboot was released, the reference to the original storyline of four scientists friends saving New York City over 30 years ago confused some fans, leading them to believe that this new movie existed in the same universe. However,  everything that director Paul Feig and writer Katie Dippold have said indicates that this is a hard reboot where people don’t know ghosts exist and therefore there has been no need for the Ghostbusters. But is there a chance they’re lying?

A new piece of marketing that announces the arrival of the proton pack as if it’s a real product from Sony Corporation seems to indicate some kind of link between the reboot and the original franchise. But more than likely, it’s just a confusing piece of viral marketing. See what we’re talking about below. Read More »
