While Paul Feig‘s new Ghostbusters will have four funny actors fighting ghosts in New York City, that’s where the similarities to the original film end. Of course, we know this time all the leads will be played by women (Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon) and that their roles aren’t going to line up with the roles in the original film. We have an idea of what those roles are and now we have an idea of a fifth, key role in the film. A role that might be played by Saturday Night Live actress Cecily Strong.

For 25 years, Ghostbusters co-creator and star Dan Aykroyd was trying to get a third movie made. Scripts were written and rewritten, creating legions of stories about the franchise future, but nothing ever came of it. Then Paul Feig came on board with a new idea: reboot the franchise with four women. Quickly, a third Ghostbusters film came into focus. It now has a cast and a 2016 release date.
Aykroyd is all for this new incarnation. He’s excited about it, he loves the cast and Feig’s script. But he’s not convinced his original idea is still dead. In a new interview on Sirius XM, the writer/actor praised the new film but said if it’s successful, some of his original ideas for a traditional sequel could still happen.

I was cautiously optimistic about Dumb and Dumber To. The Farrelly Brothers were due for a hit; they were revisiting the characters that made them famous; and both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were back for the ride. What could possibly go wrong?
The answer is “everything,” as is very well explained in the Dumb and Dumber To Honest Trailer. In this video, the film is rightfully annihilated for being pointlessly gross, uncomfortably mean, and just plain unfunny. Thankfully, in doing so, the Honest Trailer is actually pretty great.

Fans of the biggest film of 2014, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, are having a good day. The massive hit sequel is now available on digital HD ahead of its Blu-ray/On Demand debut, which comes on March 6.
