From black lights to best friends, Brooklyn’s Bottleneck Gallery is getting sentimental for their next pop culture art exhibit. It’s called I Love You, Man and is focused on friendships that are prevalent in film or television. Some examples: The Channel 4 News Team in Anchorman, the Ghostbusters, Ferris and Cameron in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Bill and Ted, The Boondock Saints, The Three Amigos, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid or Donnie and the Rabbit in Donnie Darko. Obviously, it’s a theme the gallery allowed to be twisted ever so slightly, but if you’ve ever dreamt of an Encino Man print, this is the show for you.
“I Love You, Man” opens at 7 p.m. Friday May 10 and will remain on display through May 26 at the gallery, which is in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York. Check out a nice, big sampling from the show below. Read More »

Destroying New York in movies has become so cliché. Many major disaster movies — from King Kong to The Avengers – features some kind of massive, cataclysmic event taking place in the city. For some people around the world, these big screen visions of the Big Apple are all they know about NYC. That cultural disconnect is the idea behind the latest pop culture art show at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY
The Popular Face of New York is a solo show by UK artist Chris Thornley aka Raid71. He’s created a wide range of screenprints inspired by New York movies, from the destructive (Independence Day, King Kong, Ghostbusters) to the romantic (Woody Allen) and the criminal (Martin Scorsese, The King of New York). It’s a though-provoking, and fun, glimpse at an outsiders perspective on one of the most filmed cites in the world.
The show opens March 15 and runs through March 29. Check out some images below. Read More »
On the Internet, our capacity for amazement increases on a daily basis. It’s so easy to find incredible things from talented, devoted people that creations like a hovercraft Back to the Future Delorean or an Empire Strikes Back Hoth room might just get a passing glance. We’ve seemingly seen it all. Yet even with that in mind, I’m still blown away by what people can do with Lego.
The latest example is a stunningly detailed, fully-furnished and accessorized headquarters from Ghostbusters. It’s all there: The Ecto-1, the fire pole, Chinese food, containment unit, everything. Check out some images below. Read More »
When Ghostbusters was released, Jason Reitman was seven years old. Every kid in the neighborhood wanted to be a Ghostbuster for Halloween, but he was the only one with a real Proton Pack. This, of course, is because his father, Ivan Reitman, directed the legendary 1984 film. That kinship made Thursday’s Live Read, presented by Film Independent at LACMA, that much more special.
Both Reitmans were in attendance as a cast including Seth Rogen, Jack Black and Rainn Wilson read through Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd’s shooting draft, dated October 7, 1983. The script is the movie we all know and love…with some pretty interesting changes. Unfortunately, Reitman and Film Independent don’t allow photos or recording inside these live events so we can’t present you with the entire thing. What we can present you with are five things we learned about the original script from Ghostbusters. Check them out below.

In a piece of fan casting worthy of years and years of Ghostbusters 3 speculation, director Jason Reitman has revealed that for his next live reading, Ghostbusters, he’s cast Seth Rogen, Jack Black and Rainn Wilson as Venkman, Stanz and Spengler respectively. The event, part of an ongoing series presented by Film Independent at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, takes places Thursday December 12. It’s sold out.
Of course, Jason Reitman’s father, Ivan Reitman, directed the hit 1984 film and revealed to his son that much of the famous dialogue was improvised by Bill Murray. So this isn’t just a script reading, it’s a combination of the original shooting script with Murray’s iconic one-liners. Read the rest of the cast, and how you can possibly see this once-in-a-lifetime event, after the jump. Read More »

Though much of what we loved in the ’80s fails to hold up today, Ghostbusters is one major exception. Filmgoers loved it in 1984 and they still love it today, as evidenced by the endless stream of parodies, homages, and references we get even now.
After the jump, watch two very different tributes to the horror-comedy classic. “The Ghostbusters Tour of New York” is a recent video pilgrimage of familiar locations from the film that includes on-site re-enactions, while “Blue Busters” is a 1984 parody from Apple Inc. that, yes, features appearances from a young Steve Jobs and a young Steve Wozniak.

This article is full of bad news. FOR MY WALLET! *rimshot*
Collider recently sat down to do an in-depth, on camera interview with Justin Ishmael, the creative director of Mondo, the increasingly popular and influential poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse. In the interview, tons of information was released, including:
- The reason why Mondo decided not to release a Ghostbusters poster in the past.
- Either that hoped-for Ghostbusters poster, a Back to the Future or an Attack the Block poster is coming. And possibly two of three.
- Drew Struzan is working hard on his Stephen King Dark Tower poster and they hope to release it at Comic-Con.
- 2012 should bring an expanded Mondo Mystery Movie series, possibly touring the country.
And more. We’ll highlight a few of these and show you the videos after the jump. Read More »
