It’s Ghostbusters Day! Today marks exactly 32 years since the original Ghostbusters hit theaters in 1984. In addition to the theatrical screenings happening around the country tonight, a new featurette from the reboot has just arrived, giving us a much closer look at the update Ecto-1, which is now a hearse instead of an old ambulance.
There aren’t any big revelations about the car, but we do get to see a little more details of the signature vehicle from the movie as well as some footage of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones driving around in it. However, what you’ll really want to pay attention to are the snippets of the new Ghostbusters theme by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliot towards the end.

We’re just a month and a half away from seeing if director Paul Feig can deliver an entertaining reboot of the classic Ghostbusters. Many have already written off the film while others are holding out hope that the film is much better than the early trailers have indicated. From my perspective, the broad style of comedy is a little worrisome, but the film also has a lot of style and cool visuals. But I’m still hoping for the best.
Now that hope has been bolstered somewhat thanks to original Ghostbusters creator and star Dan Aykroyd taking the time to praise the film following a test screening. In fact, he even says that it one-ups the original in some regards. Read the Dan Aykroyd Ghostbusters reaction after the jump along with Melissa McCarthy’s reaction to the ongoing backlash the film is facing from fans. Read More »

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 »
When the first trailer for the Ghostbusters reboot debuted a couple months ago, the opening moments confused some fans of the original franchise. While we heard that this new film from director Paul Feig and writer Katie Dippold was supposed to be a reboot with no narrative ties to the original franchise, the first few shots and the bumpers in between referenced the events of the first film that happened 30 years ago. This made some audiences wonder if there was some kind of link between the old and new movies after all, and they weren’t the only ones who were confused.
Melissa McCarthy recently appeared on a radio program to discuss the forthcoming summer release, and in their conversation, she expressed her own confusion from those opening shots in the trailer as well. Find out what she had to say about the Ghostbusters reboot after the jump. 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 »
Within the past five years, since the release of Bridesmaids, actress Melissa McCarthy has become a huge star. But before that, she already had a lucrative career as Sookie St. James on the family drama series Gilmore Girls. The series ran from 2000 on The WB and stuck with the network when it turned into The CW until it was canceled after its seventh season in 2007, and Melissa McCarthy appeared in all 153 episodes.
However, even though production us underway on a four-part revival of Gilmore Girls on Netflix, McCarthy hadn’t yet been confirmed to reprise her role alongside stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. But that changed yesterday as McCarthy revealed that she had finalized details to make an appearance on the show. Find out more about Melissa McCarthy returning to Gilmore Girls below. Read More »
