Fans of both Ghostbusters and LEGO had their wildest dreams come true earlier this year when an official set for the firehouse that acts as the paranormal exterminators’ headquarters was released. It was a massive (and expensive) set, and having bought and built it myself, I can tell you it was one of the most fun sets to put together. But the new Ghostbusters headquarters should have their own LEGO set too, right?
We already know there’s an official LEGO set of the new Ecto-1 on the way, featuring minifigures of all four of the new Ghostbusters, as well as their secretary Kevin, who comes with the Ecto-2 motorcycle, and even a demon ghost. But LEGO fans need a set that will house the reboot’s vehicle, and one master builder has them covered with a new project at LEGO Ideas.

A batch of Ghostbusters TV spots have arrived with some new footage from the movie, including a couple very cool action shots, and one sequence involving the return of the iconic Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from the original film. However, it’s not in the form you’d expect. See what we’re talking about in the Ghostbusters TV spots after the jump. Read More »

We’ll find out in about a month whether this will be the successful start of a new franchise. Until then, we have another Ghostbusters project for you to feast your eyes on.

Yesterday was Ghostbusters Day, and to celebrate the casts of both the 1984 classic and this year’s reboot came together on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
For some reason, the posting of the videos on YouTube pretend the arrival of the original Ghostbusters cast during an interview with the new Ghostbusters cast was some kind of surprise, even though we found out about it in advance. Anyway, the two casts get together to talk about the reboot and the legacy of the original Ghostbusters.
Plus, Bill Murray throws his full support behind the reboot and explains why he finally chose this project to come back to the Ghostbusters franchise. If you think that’s just because he’s shilling for the studio, he actually gives some very honest thoughts about the film that might quell some of the fears of naysayers out there.

While Disney recently shut down their toy-based video game franchise Disney Infinity, it appears Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is doubling down on their efforts with a ton of new expansions packs for LEGO Dimensions. They may not have Disney properties from Marvel and Lucasfilm at their disposal, but they do have no less than 16 new film, television and video game franchises coming to LEGO Dimensions over the next year.
Ahead of next week’s E3 expo, a new LEGO Dimensions trailer shows off all of the new properties coming to the building block video game world, and they’re pretty fantastic. Some of them include Harry Potter, Mission: Impossible, Adventure Time, Gremlins and more. Get the whole list of new packs coming after the jump, and watch the new LEGO Dimensions expansions trailer below. Read More »
There are some Ghostbusters fans who just aren’t happy with the reboot coming this summer from director Paul Feig. Most of the hesitancy to embrace the movie comes from the love for the 1984 original or the impression they’re getting from the trailers so far, which has been hit or miss on the comedy front. But there is an uglier side of fandom (though it’s certainly not all or even most of them) who just don’t like the idea of four women leading a Ghostbusters movie. But did you know France already remade Ghostbusters with women?
All right, this Ghostbusters remake wasn’t a major motion picture sanctioned by the government. Instead, film student Jessica Louvel and her fellow students put together a sweded Ghostbusters for France’s Université Lumière Lyon 2 about a year and a half ago. Watch the sweded Ghostbusters video with female leads after the jump. Read More »
