The original Ghostbusters from 1984 hit home video long before movies came with special features like behind the scenes featurettes and deleted scenes. But since the advent of Blu-ray and DVD discs that come chock full of bonus material, we’ve been able to see some of the deleted scenes that didn’t make the final cut of Ghostbusters. However, there are a few that still haven’t seen the light of day, and we might finally be able to see footage from one scene in particular.
The official Ghostbusters production company Ghost Corps. posted a photo yesterday revealing that they had found some previously unseen reels of footage from Ivan Reitman‘s own personal storage. One of the reels includes scenes for a sequence that was part of the original film but ended up getting cut for pacing reasons. Find out about this Ghostbusters 1984 deleted scene after the jump.

Most likely, you didn’t get a chance to check out the Ghostbusters VR experience that was available at Madam Tussauds in Times Square last summer. But if you happen to be in Washington DC sometime soon (maybe because you’re protesting the inauguration of a certain someone), then you’ll get another opportunity to check out an immersive Ghostbusters experience.
Escape Rooms are all the rage right now. If you haven’t heard of this fun phenomenon, it’s basically a puzzle that you’re a part of, almost like a game of Clue. You’re stuck in a room, and you have to solve puzzles with the various items that are in the room in order to escape. One company in Washington DC has made their experience even more unique by tying their Escape Rooms into movies, and one of them is a Ghostbusters Escape Room. Get a sneak preview after the jump.

Not many people pay attention to commercials on TV anymore, mostly because we’re either streaming content with limited to no commercials, or we’re just watching stuff on our DVR that just allows us to fast forward through them. But while watching the Golden Globes live this past weekend, a recent ad from AT&T caught my eyes (actually, my ears first) because it mashed up a ton of movies and TV shows.
In a new AT&T advertisement promoting the ability to watch a plethora of movies and TV shows on demand from your phone, you’ll find references to Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Game of Thrones, Knight Rider, Cheers, Rocky, Breaking Bad, Sex and the City, Seinfeld, Sesame Street and more.

We’re coming down to the end of 2016, and even though we’ve been starting to look forward to the movies of 2017 since as early as this past summer, it’s about time we started to look back at the good stuff this year had to offer. We’ll each be bringing you our personal Top 10 Films of 2016 leading up to a cumulative Top 15 (just like last year), but before that, we’ve got something else to kick off our look back at 2016.
Leading up to every movie, even before a trailer arrives, there’s a movie poster. So it’s time to check out a countdown of the 25 Best Movie Posters of 2016. Which of this year’s one sheets made the cut? Find out after the jump. Read More »
If you’ve already moved on from the Ghostbusters reboot from this past summer, that’s totally fine. If you didn’t like the movie, I don’t blame you. Paul Feig‘s attempt at a new Ghostbusters didn’t live up to what I was hoping to see from the movie. Honestly, I didn’t think it was downright terrible, but I thought it lost itself in the shuffle of trying to be a tentpole blockbuster when it should have stayed more true to the first half of the movie.
Beyond that, I actually liked the new team made up of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, and it’s a shame that we’ll never get to see them alongside the original Ghostbusters team of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. However, that doesn’t mean that the two universes, as separate as they are, can’t be tied to each other. In fact, I think that the new Ghostbusters universe can easily and feasibly be tied to the original movie without upsetting anything about the mythology.
Find out how a Ghostbusters reboot connection to the original movie is still very much possible after the jump. Read More »

Before we actually deal with the news at hand, let me just lead by saying that I use IMDb every single day and find it to be one of the most valuable resources on the internet. I am on there dozens of times a day, to double check the cast and crew of a movie I’m writing about or to read random trivia out loud to fill awkward silences at bad parties. I love you, Internet Movie Database. You are wonderful.
But you’re also a little drunk, as evidenced by your top 10 movies of 2016.

It’s probably a safe bet that we’ll never see the return of Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore on the big screen as the original Ghostbusters. Not only have we lost one of the original cast members (RIP Harold Ramis), but the reboot has established itself as existing in an entirely different universe, despite the many similarities and borrowed elements between the reboot and the original, making a crossover essentially impossible. But that doesn’t mean we can get a Ghostbusters crossover elsewhere.
Comics publisher IDW has announced some of the forthcoming 2017 titles, and one of them is a Ghostbusters crossover that will see the original 1984 team meeting Erin Gilbert, Abby Yates, Jillian Holtzmann and Patty Tolan, the conductors of the metaphysical examination from the 2016 movie. Find out more about the Ghostbusters crossover comic below. Read More »
