Melissa McCarthy may not be returning for the Gilmore Girls revival, to the endless disappointment of Gilmore Girls fans, but don’t worry — she’s got plenty of other stuff to keep her busy in the coming months. Not only will she appear as one of the new fab four in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, she’s also starring in The Boss, which reunites her with her Tammy director (and real-life husband) Ben Falcone.
McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, a hotshot CEO whose extravagant lifestyle comes crashing down when she’s arrested for insider trading. She emerges from prison disgraced and discouraged, but finds an unlikely path back to the top in the form of Girl Scout cookies. Or rather, “Darnell’s Darlings Brownies.” Kristen Bell plays Michelle’s reluctant business partner, and Peter Dinklage shows up as… unclear, but the role involves him wielding a sword.

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 »

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.

Everyone’s officially over the fact that the new Ghostbusters movie stars four very funny and very talented women instead of a couple of dudes, right? We can leave all of that behind and just get excited that we’re getting a new Ghostbusters movie courtesy of the genuinely inspired Paul Feig, right? Okay, good. The last thing we need is this latest batch of news about the upcoming reboot getting tainted by sexist moaning and groaning. Hooray for moving past this and never mentioning it again.
The big news here is that a new image featuring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones suited up has arrived online and they look awesome. Total badasses. The other bit of news is about some of the film’s ghostly villains and they certainly sound promising.

Melissa McCarthy seemingly can do no wrong when it comes to the box office, and she’ll try to continue her hot streak next year with two more new comedies. We’ve already heard all about one of them, Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, and today we finally have a first look at the other.
The Boss stars McCarthy as, well, the boss. Not as in Bruce Springsteen, but as in the epitome of every terrible, shady, ruthless corporate boss that sank the economy. After Michelle Darnell is finally convicted for insider trading, she re-emerges from prison ready to start fresh. The comedy is directed by McCarthy’s frequent collaborator (and real-life husband) Ben Falcone, who also directed her in Tammy.

Today marks the last day of shooting for the Ghostbusters reboot from Bridesmaids, The Heat and Spy director Paul Feig. And on wrap day, we’ve just learned of one more cameo featuring one of the stars of the original Ghostbusters from 1984.
Ernie Hudson, who played the newly recruited Winston Zeddemore in both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II in 1989, was on set shooting a cameo on the last day of shooting for the reboot today. But who will he play? Read More »
Whether you like it or not, the reboot of Ghostbusters is happening. It’s one thing to simply not want a movie that you love to get remade, but it’s another to be belligerent about the fact that the movie is utilizing four females in the lead role as the title paranormal investigators and exterminators.
While some merely don’t like the talent involved, whether it’s director Paul Feig or stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, sadly, there are many chauvinistic fans out there who simply can’t accept the fact that four women are leading a Ghostbusters movie.
And as a way to fire back at all the haters our there, McCarthy has just posted a picture on Instagram that shows there are plenty more women working on the movie than the four leading ladies. Check out the Ghostbusters reboot girl power below! Read More »
