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 »

A year ago we learned that The Rock would be starring in a big screen remake of Big Trouble In Little China, but we haven’t heard much about it since then. Sometimes when you don’t hear about a film project for a long time you just assume that it could have fallen into development heck. I thought this might be the case with The Rock’s Big Trouble remake, especially since the action star keeps getting attached to so many new projects, like the Jumanji remake and the Robert Ludlum cinematic universe. I mean, how much time does this man have?
But according to Dwayne Johnson, the film is still in the works. Find out what The Rock said, after the jump.

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.

Plus, we get to see more of just how dimwitted Chris Hemworth’s character really is.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is perhaps the biggest cult classic of all time. Even 41 years after its initial release, the campy, musical horror from director Jim Sharman still plays in theaters around the country every single week, with people dressing and cross-dressing up in their best leather and lingerie attire to act out the film with fellow Frank-N-Fans.
Now FOX will be bringing The Rocky Horror Picture Show to television as one of their event musicals in the vein of Grease Live! However, this one won’t be a live broadcast, but merely a TV movie version of the musical about a newly engaged couple who have a breakdown in the middle of nowhere and find themselves looking for help at the the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. The role of the transvestite doctor was played perfectly by Tim Curry in the original film, but the new version will be played by Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox, and we have a first look at her decked out in leather after the jump.
