Hot on the heels of yesterday’s new Ghostbusters trailer, an international trailer has debuted online, and it shows a bunch of new footage that we haven’t seen yet. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones can be seen kicking some major ghost tail, but we also get to see them trying out the proton stream as a method of catching ghosts for the first time. Plus, we get to see more of just how dimwitted Chris Hemworth’s character really is.

There’s been a lot of complaining in some quarters about Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters starring four women instead of four men. But like it or not, these are the new ‘busters we’re getting this summer, so let’s just be thankful they seem up to the task of saving Earth from a supernatural apocalypse. They’ve got one big vote of confidence, at least: “It will haunt you every night. Whatever it is. No one should have to encounter that kind of evil,” says a character played by Michael McDonald. “Except you girls, I think you can handle it.”
Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones play the new team, while Chris Hemsworth tags along for the ride as their receptionist Kevin. The latest Ghostbusters trailer from Sony features a whole lot of new footage, so check it out below. Read More »

We’ve seen Scarlett Johansson do everything from arthouse sci-fi to indie rom-com to big-budget action over the past few years, but her latest new project, Rock That Body, takes her into still new territory: the R-rated comedy. Luckily, she’ll have some experienced comedy vets on hand to help her out. Kate McKinnon (Ghostbusters), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), and Ilana Glazer (Broad City) have just joined Johansson and Zoë Kravitz in Rock That Body, which comes from Broad City writers Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello. Downs (who also plays Trey on Broad City) will co-star, and Aniello will direct. Read More »
It’s no secret that some people just aren’t happy about the reboot of Ghostbusters on the way from director Paul Feig. Even before production began, there was already a decent amount of outrage and hate for the film. Some of the distaste was from fans who just didn’t want to see the beloved classic get a contemporary reboot instead of sequel. However, there was much more despicable outcry from people who simply didn’t like the idea of four women (Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones) starring in the film, and that’s just ridiculous.
Now it appears the more irrational hate for the movie has resulted in some kind of coordinated attack on the internet that has resulted in the Ghostbusters reboot trailer becoming the most disliked movie trailer in YouTube history. Find out more after the jump. Read More »
Last night, Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage made his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live, and you just knew that the late night sketch show was going to do something parodying the popular HBO fantasy series. Thankfully, they did not disappoint with a faux featurette from behind the scenes of show that illustrates how they’re bring Daenerys Targaryen‘s impressive dragons to life for the forthcoming sixth season. Sure, there’s visual effects involved, but there’s also an impressive motion capture performance that helps.

The new Ghostbusters movie has damn big shoes to fill. Ivan Reitman’s 1984 is a stone-cold classic that millions of Gen Xers and Millennials around the world have grown up with, and Ghostbusters II is remembered with great affection even if it’s not quite up to par. It’s hard to imagine anyone else quite replacing the original foursome, which may be why director Paul Feig isn’t really trying. There’s no “new Venkman,” or new Ray or Winston or Egon for that matter.
Instead, Feig’s serving up a whole new team. And if the trailers, posters, and images are any indication, this new gang is more than capable of keeping New York safe from supernatural forces. The latest Ghostbusters image shows the new Ghostbusters team lighting up their newly redesigned proton packs, and looking pretty damn cool doing it. Check it out below. Read More »
Even though the international Ghostbusters trailer that hit the web this week was much better than the initial teaser trailer that debuted the previous week, some hopeful fans still have a bad taste in their mouth. As someone who is still hoping for the best from director Paul Feig, even though I firmly think this should be more of a sequel than a hard reboot, I can’t deny that the first trailer was pretty poorly cut. And it seems filmmaker Kevin Smith think so too.
While speaking on his Hollywood Babble-On podcast with fellow co-host and occasional actor Ralph Garmin, Smith had some harsh words for the Ghostbusters trailer. However, he was very specific in his comments by criticizing the trailer rather than denouncing the movie itself. Find out about Kevin Smith’s Ghostbusters trailer reaction after the jump.

Even though Easter weekend is still a couple weeks away, The Angry Birds Movie is getting a head start by getting their holiday greeting out there. After all, birds have become a part of the Easter holiday, along with rabbits, for no good reason at all. The good news is that even though this is just a shameless plug for the animated adaptation of the mobile game franchise, it’s done in an extremely adorable way, thanks to the tiny hatchlings explaining what the Easter Bunny does for the holiday. Seriously, they’re almost unbearably cute. Read More »

Chris Hemsworth may be an internationally beloved star of a multi-billion dollar franchise, but you wouldn’t know it from the first Ghostbusters trailer. He shows up looking pretty for a shot or two, and then disappears before he even gets a line in. We imagine he’ll have much, much more to do in the movie itself, but for now it’s an amusing inversion of the usual action movie trailer dynamic, in which you’ll see male heroes running around kicking ass while female leads are reduced to simple eye candy.
But like we said, Chris Hemsworth is an internationally beloved star. And that means he’s a real asset when it comes to selling this movie to overseas audiences. So naturally, he has a far bigger role to play in the new Ghostbusters international trailer. Which means, yes, it features tons of new footage, Hemsworth-centric and otherwise. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
