This month has been chock full of new details about Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters. We’ve seen the new proton packs (with added specs to help cosplayers), the new Ecto-1, and a shot of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones all suited up and ready to bust ghosts, not to mention learning about a cameo from Dan Aykroyd and the character names of the new female paranormal exterminators.
But today we have an update regarding the Ghostbusters spin-off that was first reported back in March with ties to Captain America: the Winter Soldier directors Anthony & Joe Russo. At the time Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum were said to be eyed as stars of the film, but Pratt denied the rumors and Tatum’s producing partner Reid Carolin said it wasn’t happening anymore.
However, if Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce is to be believed, then the Ghostbusters spin-off may still happen. Find out more below! Read More »

We’ve already been told that the new Spider-Man suit will “blow people away,” and now there’s a chance that a first glimpse at the new suit may have been revealed in a rather mysterious way.

As exciting as going to the movies is, making one is often the opposite. It’s a slow, meticulous process that is more often than not boring instead of fun. There are so many moving parts, and so many people are invested mentally and financially, filmmakers just need to make sure everything is done right. The bigger a movie gets, the longer it takes to make sure that’s the case.
Movies don’t get bigger than Avengers: Infinity War. It’s a two part epic that is expected to feature an interplaterary battle between Thanos, The Avengers and maybe even the Guardians of the Galaxy. On paper, it’s everything the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building to since 2008. A movie that big will necessitate a very long shoot. That’s exactly what’s happening, according to star Chris Evans. He says he’ll be shooting both Infinity War parts for about 9 months, starting late next year.

But where does that leave Spider-Man and Ghostbusters, two properties the Russos have also been mentioned for? We’ll discuss those, and the Avengers Infinity War directors below. Read More »
Today’s announcement of a second new Ghostbusters film, scripted by Drew Pearce, possibly directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, and with Channing Tatum anchoring a supposedly “guy-centric” cast, threw a lot of people for a loop. Sony doesn’t even have Paul Feig‘s new Ghostbusters film out yet, so wouldn’t this overshadow that upcoming movie?
But as it turns out, some details were exaggerated in that first report — reportedly, people at Sony say they don’t know where the “guy-centric” description came from — and other background stuff didn’t make it online at all. A new report says the second film would be part of a shared universe with Feig’s movie, with a third team-up film and a possible prequel all designed as part of the package. Read More »

Paul Feig’s female-centric Ghostbusters are no longer the only ‘busters on the block. Sony has just announced a new division of their company, Ghost Corps, which will take control of the franchise.

When done correctly, you never even think of the power of digital effects. You sit down, you watch a movie, and you let the story wash over you. You never once think about the crazy amount of work that went into it. When you finally do step back and look at the incredible work and detail put into every single frame of every movie you watch, it’s staggering.
Part of the reason we can eventually appreciate the work of digital effects are videos like the one below. It’s a short sizzle reel of just some of Industrial Light and Magic‘s (ILM) work on The Russo Brothers’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Check out the Captain America Winter Soldier visual effects video below. Read More »
