Ghostbusters just arrived on home video last week, and it came with the extended cut of the film that wasn’t seen in theaters. Word on the street is that the extra 15 minutes put back into the movie actually fixes many of the plot holes that remained in the theatrical cut, and it just might be worth watching. It probably won’t change the minds of those who flat out hated the theatrical cut already, but there you have it.
Now that the film is on home video, some of the outtakes are making their way online. There are actually two gag reels and six alternate take reels available in the special features, showing that Paul Feig shot a lot of footage for this movie. They’re all worth watching for some laughs, but easily the best one out of all of them are Kate McKinnon‘s Ghostbusters outtakes. They’re wacky, wonderful and just pure improvisational magic. Watch them below! Read More »
This weekend brings the first episode of the 42nd season of Saturday Night Live, with Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie hosting. This will be the first season without Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah in years, and it will also have two new head writers in control of the night’s sketches, and three new cast members. But there’s one more big change coming this season.
While recent years have seen presidential candidate Donald Trump played by the recently departed Taran Killam, followed by the return of Darrell Hammond in the role to allow Killam to play former candidate Ted Cruz, this season will put someone else in the role, and he isn’t a cast member. Alec Baldwin will be playing Donald Trump on this season of Saturday Night Live, and he’ll be going head-to-head with recent Emmy winner Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton in a debate sketch this weekend.
See a promo for the arrival of Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live below. Read More »
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 »
Some people wonder why Saturday Night Live is still a program that is put together in just a week when the comedy that comes from the show can be so hit or miss. For superfans of the show like myself, that’s actually one of the most exciting aspects of the show. It’s impressive to see what this talented group of people can put together in such a short amount of time, and no one makes show like this anywhere else on television.
Another fun element of the live aspect of the show is that anything can happen while it’s on the air, and that includes cast members “breaking” in the middle of a scene. Sometimes the SNL cast members just can’t help but laugh at themselves or their co-stars and they break the reality of the scene. Usually it just results in the sketch getting funnier, and the audience always loves to see it happen. Now you can relive some of the best moments of breaking from SNL with a couple supercuts spanning decades of sketches. Read More »

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 »
Just a few days after the reboot of Ghostbusters from director Paul Feig hit theaters, Sony Pictures made quite the confident claim that a sequel would likely be happening. At the time, Rory Bruer, president of worldwide distribution at Sony Pictures, said:
The ‘Ghostbusters’ world is alive and well. I expect ‘Ghostbusters’ to become an important brand and franchise. While nothing has been officially announced yet, there’s no doubt in my mind it will happen.
It’s a good thing nothing was officially announced, because with a projected loss of $70 million or more when all is said and done, the prospects of a Ghostbusters sequel actually happening aren’t looking too good. Find out more after the jump. Read More »
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 »

Jared Hess‘ Masterminds centers on a real-life $17 million heist, but Ocean’s 11 or Inside Man this ain’t. Instead, the thieves behind the operation include an unassuming armored car driver played by Zach Galifianakis, his flirty co-worker played by Kristen Wiig, their not-very-brilliant mastermind played by Owen Wilson. Jason Sudeikis stars as a hitman, Kate McKinnon as Galifianakis’ wife, and Leslie Jones as the cop who’s out to get them all. Yep, this film stars three of the four new Ghostbusters. Watch the new Masterminds trailer below. Read More »

If you’ve ever worked in an office, you’re surely familiar with the tradition of awkward holiday parties. You know the drill: everyone gets a little too drunk, says some things they’ll probably regret, maybe engages in an ill-advised hookup with a colleague, and then comes back to work the next morning hoping everyone else can just agree to pretend that nothing happened. But the office Christmas party in Office Christmas Party will surely put even your sauciest, most scandalous shindigs to shame.
Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, and Olivia Munn play co-workers who enjoy an epic rager for the holidays. How epic are we talking? Well, it involves drugs, burning Christmas trees, drunken Santas sledding down staircases, a reindeer drinking out of the toilet, and, perhaps most telling of all, the fantastically terrifying Jillian Bell. Watch the Office Christmas Party trailer below.

This past weekend brought the debut of Ghostbusters at the box office, and while it wasn’t big enough to take down Illumination Entertainment’s second weekend for their massive hit The Secret Life of Pets, it still pulled down a respectable $46 million. It’s not clear if that’s a bit of a disappointing number for the studio, but apparently it doesn’t matter, because they have “no doubt” that a Ghostbusters sequel will come together.
Find out what a key Sony Pictures executive said about the future of Ghostbusters after the jump. Read More »
