There are plenty of new iterations of Ghostbusters coming up. Paul Feig has his female-led reboot with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones on the way, with additional rumblings of a spin-off featuring Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum as a new team of male Ghostbusters. And there’s an animated Ghostbusters film in the works at Sony as well.
But we’ve yet to hear of any new TV projects bringing Ghostbusters to the small screen anytime soon. However, once the studio gets a look at this fan-made Ghostbusters sitcom opening credits sequence, you can bet the wheels inside some executives’ heads are going to start turning. Read More »

It’s been 26 years since Spike Lee‘s provocative Do the Right Thing debuted, and since Hollywood has been digging deep into the past for sequels, reboots and remakes, it only makes sense that they would revive the racially charged drama.
However, in case you haven’t noticed, Brooklyn has changed a lot since 1989. As Jimmy Kimmel noted during one of his episodes being taped in New York last week, “There used to be muggers right in this neighborhood stealing old ladies’ purses. Now those old lady purses are being worn ironically by hipsters in the area.” And that’s exactly what inspired the trailer for Do the Right Thing 2, starring Billy Crudup, Zooey Deschanel and more white people.

Clearly, there’s an angel with me right now. How else to explain that mere minutes after I professed my love for Angels in the Outfield right here on /Film, I came across a 30 for 30 episode about same?
Okay, so by “episode” I mean “College Humor parody.” But that doesn’t make 30 for 30: Angels in the Outfield any less magical. Watch the 30 for 30 Angels in the Outfield video after the jump. Read More »
It’s almost unanimous among fans that the worst thing the Star Wars prequels have contributed to the canon of the galaxy far, far away is the character of Jar Jar Binks. The Gungan companion is a dumb cartoon, and it seems George Lucas really wanted to fuel the fire by having him be the senator who makes the motion to give emergency powers to Chancellor Palpatine, thus bringing about the creation of the clone army that helped spawn the Galactic Empire.
And now he’s back to ruin the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer with a fanmade cut that inserts him all over the place, sometimes in a very impressive way. Watch the Jar Jar Binks The Force Awakens trailer below! Read More »
The celebration that was Back to the Future Day has come and gone, and after all the love and nostalgia that came out for the time traveling franchise yesterday, it’s only fair to follow it up with some lighthearted jabs by way of an Honest Trailer for the entire trilogy.
The first Back to the Future is a perfect movie, so Honest Trailers doesn’t really have much to nitpick on the filmmaking side of things. Instead, they turn their focus on how the sequels are just a repeat of the same formula and point out some of the uncomfortable racism that exists in the past, not to mention the incestuous plot point between Marty McFly and his mom.

Twitter can be a wretched hive of scum and villainy that feels engineered to fill you with crummy feelings and ruin your day… but it can also be a miraculous forum on which to witness incredible people engage in incredible conversations about incredible things. Or at least super-nerdy things. Or at least hilarious mean things. Based purely on the strength of a lengthy exchange between filmmakers Rian Johnson and Duncan Jones, Twitter has earned the right to exist for another few weeks or so.
What happens when the director of Star Wars Episode VIII challenges the director of Warcraft to a Twitter duel over the value of their respective film series? You can see for yourself below.

Much of the nostalgia fueling Back to the Future Day comes from people (like yours truly) who are actually old enough to remember when 1989 was the present, and 2015 was an impossibly distant future. But a whole generation of moviegoers has come up since that film was released.
So how do teens today — who, keep in mind, weren’t even born when Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale were predicting hoverboards and self-tying laces for 2015 — feel about the movie? Watch teens react to Back to the Future Part II after the jump. Read More »
This weekend brings the latest drama from Steven Spielberg, the Cold War-set Bridge of Spies, marking the director’s fourth collaboration with Tom Hanks. The filmmaker and star have both been making the publicity rounds to get butts in seats at theaters this weekend, and as usual, Hanks had some fun on the late night circuit with Jimmy Fallon.
Over on The Tonight Show, the recurring segment Kid Theater made a return with Tom Hanks and Jimmy Fallon acting out Bridge of Spies as written by kids. All the little tykes were given was the title of the movie, and Hanks and Fallon act out a short script of whatever the kids thought the movie was about based on that. It’s adorable and hilarious.

If you don’t know that Back to the Future Day is coming up next week, then you are either deaf and blind or you don’t read /Film more than twice a month. The celebration of the most iconic time travel film franchise is nearly upon us, and there are plenty of big events happening and cool little promotions like Pepsi Perfect on October 21st, 2015.
This is all because that date is when Doc (Christopher Lloyd) and Marty (Michael J. Fox) travel to 2015 in Back to the Future Part II. However, as we know, the 2015 of the movie isn’t the same as the year we’re living in now (there’s even a short that will explain why that’s the case). But what if Doc and Marty ended up going Back to the Future in real 2015 instead? Read More »
