Ghostbusters

Every few weeks there’s a new reason Ghostbusters 3 hasn’t happened yet. Some are valid, others are not, but for the past 25 years there’s always something. First it was Bill Murray’s reluctance, then it was Chris Miller and Phil Lord passing on the project, of course the tragic death of Harold Ramis, Ivan Reitman’s departure, script problems, the list goes on and on. At the center of it all is the spokeman for the franchise: co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd.

In a new interview Aykroyd offers up a totally new reason for the delay and it’s one that makes a good amount of sense, considering the climate in Hollywood. Aykroyd said everyone involved in the project isn’t just looking at Ghostbusters 3. They’re looking at a whole Ghostbusters universe: prequels, sequels, TV shows and more in hopes of building a connected, multimedia Ghostbusters franchise like Disney has with Marvel. Read More »

Hoyte Van Hoytema Bond 24

Normally we’d have a large measure of sympathy for anyone who had to take over a job following Roger Deakins. And since Deakins isn’t shooting the new Bond film, someone has to step into his shoes. But the person to take over the job shooting Bond 24 is Hoyte van Hoytema, who did such a tremendous job with Her, and then shot Interstellar for Christopher Nolan. So things are probably going to work out just fine. There’s another good detail in the Hoyte Van Hoytema Bond 24 news, which you can find below. Read More »

Michael Bay Bayhem

Transformers: Age of Extinction hits Blu-ray and home video next week, and Paramount has given us an exclusive behind the scenes clip to premiere.

Paramount has also released some other behind the scenes clips from the Michael Bay film; watch those as well after the jump.

C-3PO Episode 7 Suit

We know that Andy Serkis‘ performance capture studio The Imaginarium is heavily involved in JJ AbramsStar Wars Episode VII, but we never considered to ask if classic characters like C-3PO would be computer animated or played by a man-in-suit.  Well, apparently when JJ Abrams first called Anthony Daniels, he asked the British actor to voice our favorite protocol droid in the new series. As you know, Daniels not only voiced the character but played the droid on screen  in a tightly created armored costume in the original trilogy, although the character was heavily CG animated in the prequels. So is C-3PO a performance capture computer animated creation in Episode 7? Find out the full story of the new C-3po Episode 7 suit, after the jump.

Ed Helms’ ‘Vacation’ Sequel Starts Shooting

Vacation sequel

“No, no, no NO NO NO NOOOOOOOO” is how our own Peter Sciretta reacted when news of a Vacation sequel first hit /Film five years ago. Despite his objections, though, New Line pressed on, and as of today the Vacation sequel / reboot / spin-off thing has finally started shooting.

Ed Helms plays Rusty Griswold, now all grown up with a family of his own. But don’t worry — Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo will still reprise their roles as his parents, Clark and Ellen Griswold. Christina Applegate, Chris Hemsworth, and Charlie Day also star. Get all the Vacation sequel details after the jump. Read More »

Venom

As great a character as Spider-Man is, his villains are often just as interesting. That’s one of the many reasons Sony is moving ahead with a Sinister Six film before they get back to The Amazing Spider-Man 3. They’re also moving forward with a solo film for one of Spidey’s most popular villains, Venom. That one will be directed by Alex Kurtzman, but we don’t know much about it other than that it is happening.

In a new interview, the director gave an updating saying Ed Solomon will start writing the script soon, and that choosing which character would be under the suit in the film hasn’t been an easy decision. Read the Alex Kurtzman Venom quotes below. Read More »
