Over the weekend, the cast of the new Ghostbusters earned some goodwill with fans by visiting the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. Photos have been making the rounds online featuring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones visiting patients and their families while wearing all their Ghostbusters gear.
Obviously, this is a very charming thing for the cast to do, and we’re happy to see these kids have some joy brought into their lives. But our interest has also been piqued by these photos because the team seems to be wearing an entirely different proton pack than the ones that director Paul Feig already revealed to us back in June.

Director Paul Feig has been revealing quite a bit from his forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot that’s currently shooting in New York City. We’ve already seen the new proton packs (with added specs to help cosplayers), the new Ecto-1, and a shot of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones all suited up and ready to bust ghosts.
But we still didn’t know what characters the ladies were playing. That changed yesterday when Feig replied to a request to reveal the character names on Twitter from a Ghostsbusters fan and charity organization. Find out the new Ghostbusters character names after the jump! Read More »
Since Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters doesn’t have any narrative ties to the original franchise, we won’t be seeing any characters from the iconic films popping up. But that doesn’t mean some of the stars of the 1984 Ghostbusters are out of the running.
In fact, Dan Aykroyd has just announced that he was on the set of Ghostbusters today shooting a scene with Kristen Wiig. And there are even details as to what kind of character he’s playing in the movie. Find out more about the Dan Aykroyd Ghostbusters cameo after the jump! Read More »

A reboot version of Ghostbusters is coming in July of 2016 with Bridesmaids director Paul Feig at the helm and actresses Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in the lead roles. We’ve heard some chatter about the film before from Feig, with comments on the backlash, as well as on the proposed spin-off movies that might be in the works for a shared universe. Feig also previously mentioned that The Walking Dead was influencing his new approach to Ghostbusters.
But now the director has opened up about what finally drew him to the franchise after he resisted getting involved with a previous attempt at a Ghostbusters sequel. Find out why Paul Feig turned down Ghostbusters 3 below. Read More »

If you’ve ever watched The Transporter, Crank, or The Expendables and wished you were Jason Statham, then we have some good news. Thanks to a pretty odd promotion from 20th Century Fox for next month’s action comedy Spy, you can get plans for a 3D printed Jason Statham mask. Disclaimer: Whatever you decide to do once that mask is in your possession is up to you, and we are not responsible.

Melissa McCarthy is funny pretty much all of the time, but she’s never better than when she’s working with Paul Feig. Following the massive successes of Bridesmaids and The Heat, the pair are reuniting again this summer for the James Bond sendup Spy.
McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, a deskbound CIA analyst supporting the agency’s suave star spy (Jude Law) on his missions, she never gets to have the glory. Until, that is, the usual James Bond types (including Jason Statham) are targeted by a villain (Rose Byrne) who claims to know all the identities of all the agents. With no other options, the CIA reluctantly promotes her to field agent.

Watching this weekend’s Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary show was like the TV version of Where’s Waldo. In every single crowd shot, you’d see the likes of Steven Spielberg and Michael Douglas; even in the skits, you never knew who could pop up, with people like Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper showing up.
Four women who were hard to miss were Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Each comedienne appeared on the show at least once, and some multiple times, making us laugh with their old characters, tributes to their favorite characters and even some current SNL goodness.
Of course, we mention them because those four women also comprise the core cast of Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters, which will hit theaters July 22, 2016. And for the first time since the film was announced, the four main actresses posed for a quick photo on social media. See the new Ghostbusters photo below. Read More »
