Ghostbusters Easter Eggs

Now that the dust has settled around the hotly debated Ghostbusters reboot from director Paul Feig, we wanted to take a look back at all the Easter eggs and references the new film made to the original 1984 classic from director Ivan Reitman. One of the biggest complaints was that the reboot aimed for too much fan service with an abundance of references to the original film, right down to cameos from almost every single key cast member.

Once you check out our complete Ghostbusters Easter eggs guide below, you can decide for yourself. Some of them are obvious, others might have gone over your head. But we rounded up all of them, because there might be some viewers out there who aren’t as well-versed with the original Ghostbusters as some of the most hardcore fans. That’s why you’ll see us referencing everything from the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man to a tribute the late Harold Ramis to a couple of obscure ghosts you forgot about. Read More »

Ghostbusters

Director Paul Feig likes to shoot a lot of alternate jokes and takes. Because of that, the first cuts for his movies tend to be quite long. In the case of Ghostbusters, for example, the first cut his editor put together was over four hours long (which isn’t actually too outrageous of a runtime if Feig is talking about the assembly cut). Some of those deleted scenes will be restored back into the film, as Sony plans on releasing an extended cut of Ghostbusters later this year.

Below, find out more about the Ghostbusters deleted scenes.

If you had told me two years ago that the new Ghostbusters movie would be the source of so much bitter, angry contention, I would have called you a liar. But here we are. The movie has been out for a few days. You’ve had a chance to see it. I’ve had a chance to see it. We can finally talk about it like civilized adults.

And I think it’s a good movie, maybe even a very good movie. At the very least, it’s colorful and funny and spooky and populated by actors I like watching. It’s certainly no disaster, despite what any wrongheaded internet campaigns are trying to tell you. Director Paul Feig has made a movie that feels right at home in the Ghostbusters legacy…even though it tries too hard to pay tribute to that legacy.

Ghostbusters - group

Paul Feig and Katie Dippold first met around seven years ago. Dippold was writing for Parks and Recreation at the time when Feig directed “Pawnee Zoo,” the episode in which Leslie Knope arranges a wedding between two male penguins. Years later, when Dippold was hoping Feig would direct a spec script she wrote, titled The Heat, the two met for lunch. That meeting helped lead them to where they are today.

Feig and Dippold have made their biggest film yet with Ghostbusters. The reboot stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as the team that’ll have to save New York City from the paranormal. At the press day, Dippold was kind enough to discuss with us how she and Feig put this new team together, the film’s cameos, working with Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd, and more.

Below, read our Katie Dippold interview.

‘Ghostbusters’ – What Did You Think?

Ghostbusters - hotel

We’ve been talking about the new Ghostbusters for so long, it’s almost hard to believe it’s actually here. The conversation around this movie has become deafening over the past few months, with haters and defenders alike arguing over a movie no one had actually seen. Now that it’s finally here, we can all judge it for ourselves. And at least here at /Film, reactions have already been mixed — I enjoyed it quite a bit, while Peter was more disappointed. So now it’s your turn to weigh in: what did you think?

Be warned that MAJOR SPOILERS are ahead and in the comments. And as a courtesy to your fellow /Film readers: we know the arguments surrounding Ghostbusters have gotten heated. Please be civil while discussing the movie here.  Read More »
