Paul Feig‘s female-led reboot of Ivan Reitman‘s popular ’80s classic Ghostbusters will hit theaters on July 15th 2016, and Sony’s Columbia Pictures has just released the first Ghostbusters trailer online. Hit the jump to watch the trailer now, and please let us know what you think.

Every film festival has its unique identity. Programmers from all backgrounds and walks of life come together to create a voice for a fest, selecting and pursuing movies that they believe serve their particular slice of film fanatics. And while it would be unfair to to reduce a film festival as unique and special and varied as SXSW to “Yeah, they the exact kind of outfit that would take a chance on an R-rated animated comedy about talking food,” it’s true. They are the exact kind of outfit that would take a chance on an R-rated animated comedy about talking food.
The SXSW Film Festival has announced that it will screen a “work-in-progress” cut of Sausage Party, the latest project to blossom from the deranged minds of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Although the film sounds like a lazy riff on the Brave Little Toaster and Toy Story template, the fact that this animated film is intended for adult audiences and features a killer line-up of voice talent suggests that we’re supposed to make that comparison…only for the formula to be torn to shreds.

As you were reminded of earlier this week, Ghostbusters 2 predicted the end of the world to happen on February 14th, 2016. That’s today’s Valentine’s Day. Thankfully, we’re still here, and that means that we still get to see what Paul Feig‘s new take on the Ghostbusters will offer when it hits theaters this summer.
So far we’ve only seen photos of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in the movie, but now the first footage from the movie has arrived in the form of a trailer announcement. But keep your expectations in check, because the Ghostbusters trailer teaser does’t show us much of anything yet. Read More »

Just about a week ago, an official LEGO set was announced featuring Paul Feig‘s new Ghostbusters. The set included the new Ecto-1 along with the Ghostbusters played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. But in addition to those pieces, there was another interesting inclusion, a new vehicle called the Ecto-2. It’s basically a Ghostbusters motorcycle, and Chris Hemsworth‘s character Kevin was seen riding it in not only the LEGO set photos but leaked set photos as well.
Now we get an official look at the new vehicle thanks to an image from the set that was actually meant for release online. And even though it doesn’t looks like anything special, you’ll see that there are some special modifications to help the Ghostbusters to their job. Check out the new ride below. Read More »

Justin Theroux was originally going to direct Zoolander 2. The co-writer and co-star of the sequel was attached to the director’s chair for a while, but due to scheduling conflicts with HBO’s The Leftovers, he had to step down. But the actor remained very much involved in the project, as he worked on the script for years, visited the set, and, of course, reprised his role as the infamous Evil DJ.
Below, read our Justin Theroux interview.

It can be tempting to react to the never-ending torrent of remakes, reboots, sequels, and spinoffs with a knee-jerk groan. Truthfully, though, that’s not always fair. Creed was a spinoff-reboot-sequel combo that restored the long-running Rocky series to its former glory. Ditto The Force Awakens for Star Wars. On the TV side, Ash vs. Evil Dead and Fargo have both managed to recapture the spirit of their respective originals, while also bringing something new to the table.
But if those titles are evidence that Hollywood’s obsession with existing IP can yield excellent results, Zoolander 2 represents the worst-case scenario. Not because Zoolander 2 is the worst movie ever made — it isn’t — but because it’s what we fear every time one of these projects gets announced: a joyless cash-grab more interested in rehashing old ideas than building on them.

The existence of Zoolander 2 becomes really interesting when you remember that the first film was not a big hit. Released during a window when no one in the world was in a laughing mood (September 2001), Ben Stiller’s goofy male model comedy only made $60 million worldwide against a budget of $28 million. Zoolander could have remained buried and totally forgotten, but the ensuing years were kind to the film as it developed a huge following on home video. And that’s why, 15 years later, a sequel is on our doorstep.
And now, the final Zoolander 2 trailer has arrived and it brings with it a number of questions. Will this sequel find the box office success that escaped the first film? More importantly, will it prove itself to be a worthy follow-up?

And like that, the Ghostbusters marketing engine starts to lurch into motion.
Director Paul Feig‘s instantly controversial (for the right and wrong reasons) remake hasn’t been completely shy – we’ve seen several images of the new Ghostbusters in their snazzy new uniforms as well as a handful of character posters. However, a new batch of cast pictures, including our first official look at Chris Hemsworth as the team’s secretary, have arrived and the film’s official website has launched and a rough release date for the first trailer has been revealed. We’re a little over five months away from this movie hitting theaters and Sony is about to make sure you and everyone else is aware of it.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 years since the first Zoolander, especially given how well Derek and Hansel’s handsome mugs have aged. Which is to say, not very much at all. Perhaps they’ve been been slathering on some of that Youth Milk from the House of Atoz Beauty Laboratory — the top-of-the-line skincare company spearheaded by Kristen Wiig‘s bizarre beauty guru character, Alexanya Atoz.
The latest Zoolander 2 promo takes the form of a promo for Youth Milk, and it’s the best beauty ad since Derek Zoolander, as the face of Aveda, uttered the immortal line “Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty.” Watch the Youth Milk ad, plus more Zoolander TV spots, after the jump.
