If there’s one thing to be thankful for this weekend besides friends, family and that new Star Wars: The Force Awakens extended TV spot that arrived yesterday, it’s the potential return of one of the most wonderful drinks from the late 80s and early 90s.
Even for kids who were inexplicably not fans of Ghostbusters in the 90s, the Hi-C juice flavor Ecto-Cooler was a staple in lunchboxes and sleepovers, featuring Slimer on the box as the drink’s mascot. It was all the rage from when The Real Ghostbusters series started and lasted well past the cancellation of the animated series. But it’s been gone for years. However, there might be hope of a comeback as Coca-Cola just recently re-registered the trademark for Ecto-Cooler back in September. Read More »

While many film productions opt to shoot on a sound stage with a set specifically built for the movie in question, sometimes it’s just cheaper and easier to create a movie set at a location that already exists. It could be a diner, hotel, mansion, police station or anything. And sometimes, a certain location is just so good that it gets reused for a completely different movie, but you may not even recognize it.
Below you can check out a video that runs through 10 recycled movie sets that you might have seen in multiple movies. For example, did you know the interior of the iconic Ghostbusters firehouse can be seen as an auto shop in The Mask? Read More »
Even though the forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot doesn’t have any narrative ties to the original franchise, there will still be plenty for original fans to sink their teeth into. All of the surviving Ghostbusters (Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson) have cameos along with a couple other cast members (but not Rick Moranis). But one more cameo from a familiar Ghostbusters face might be on the table.
A new rumor says that a Slimer cameo will be brought into the Ghostbusters reboot, but one conflicting, key source has created some doubt as to whether that will actually happen. Find out more below! Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
There are legions of Ghostbusters fans around the world, and while some of them have spent their time complaining and bashing the forthcoming reboot of the franchise from director Paul Feig, others are just happy holding on to the original films that touched their lives so many years ago.
Now a new documentary will explore the extreme side of Ghostbusters fandom. The project is called Ghostheads, and it hails from Lee Leshen, the producer of the recent Back to the Future documentary Back in Time. And if you’re a hardcore Ghostbusters fan, this is a project you can get involved with in more ways than one. Read More »
There are plenty of new iterations of Ghostbusters coming up. Paul Feig has his female-led reboot with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones on the way, with additional rumblings of a spin-off featuring Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum as a new team of male Ghostbusters. And there’s an animated Ghostbusters film in the works at Sony as well.
But we’ve yet to hear of any new TV projects bringing Ghostbusters to the small screen anytime soon. However, once the studio gets a look at this fan-made Ghostbusters sitcom opening credits sequence, you can bet the wheels inside some executives’ heads are going to start turning. Read More »
While there’s a reboot of Ghostbusters on the way from director Paul Feig with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in the four main roles, there’s an animated Ghostbusters film in development at Sony Pictures as well. However, what today’s kids really need is an updated version of the animated series The Real Ghostbusters.
Considering how computer animation has become much easier to produce than it used to be, it would be cool to see The Real Ghostbusters updated in that animation style. Thankfully, one fan has given us a taste of what that might be like with a computer animated Real Ghostbusters introduction that’s just an updated version of the original animated opening. Watch!

Hey there! We haven’t been properly introduced. I’m Ethan Anderton. Back in May, I joined the /Film crew as the Weekend Editor, and while some of you have gotten to know me and my film tastes over the past few months, I never got a chance to truly arrive here at the site like our new writers Jack Giroux and Jacob Hall.
Therefore, I figured I’d follow suit by delivering my own favorite films of all time. These are the movies that have stuck with me over the years, some more recently than others, and have defined and changed my life in a variety of ways. Read More »
