Ghostbusters Extended Cut

Even though we’ve heard that a Ghostbusters sequel is unlikely after the box office numbers were analyzed a little more closely, there’s a chance the home video release could help convince Sony Pictures otherwise. Plus, when the reboot hits home video, we’ll be getting a different cut of the movie as an extended cut has been confirmed to be on the home video release, as teased by director Paul Feig a little while back.

The film has officially been given the title of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, which appeared at the end of some of the trailers and the movie once it hit theaters, as you can see in the cover art. You can check that out after the jump along with the list of special features and the release date for the Ghostbusters extended cut on Digital HD as well as Blu-ray and DVD. Read More »

2016 summer movie recap

The summer movie season is over and you know what that means – it’s time to hand out pointless imaginary awards to the best, worst, and weirdest films of the past four months!

Welcome to the 2016 Summer Blockbuster Awards, which is like the Oscars if the Oscars only covered a specific release window, were decided by one person, and were also really dumb. Here’s how this works: I have created 24 categories, from “Best Performance” to “Movie Most in Need of a Hug” and have awarded one winner and one runner-up. At the name of these awards imply, the focus here is on wide releases that arrived between May and August of this year. So while you really should go out of your way to see indie gems like Swiss Army Man and Don’t Think Twice, they won’t be the focus here. Got it? Good. Let’s just dive right in.

Be warned there are spoilers ahead for some of this summer’s films.

Ghostbusters Visual Effects (VFX) Reel

The reboot of Ghostbsuters arrived this summer and stirred up plenty of buzz, both good and bad. It doesn’t sound like the movie performed well enough at the box office to warrant a sequel to get made, despite Sony’s confidence immediately after the film opened, but we’ll see how things play out after it hits home video.

However, regardless of how you feel about the franchise reboot, I think that even some of those who didn’t like the movie would commend the Ghostbusters visual effects, especially in the spectre department. The new ghosts in the movie were creepy, colorful and really brought some visual style to the reboot. Now a Ghostbusters visual effects reel from the company Iloura shows how some practical tools combined with digital animation helped bring them to life in the movie. Read More »

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 »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:


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.
