Ghostbusters reboot girl power

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 »

Chris Hemsworth Ghostbusters

In Ghostbusters, the original film, the closest Annie Potts got to suiting up for action was putting on a come-hither look for Harold Ramis’s character Egon.

In Ghostbusters, the new film from Paul Feig, Chris Hemsworth plays a similar receptionist character to the one played by Potts in the original. This time, however, it seems like the new Ghostbuster team at least has an extra uniform laying around, as Hemsworth is suited up in a boiler suit similar to the one worn by the main cast (above). Check out the first Chris Hemsworth Ghostbusters shot below. Read More »

Ghostbusters cameo

Production is currently underway in Boston, Massachusetts on the reboot of Ghostbusters from director Paul Feig. The cast was recently spotted at a children’s hospital in full Ghostbusters gear, complete with new proton packs that we hadn’t seen before.

And now news has surfaced of another intriguing bit of activity in Boston with one of the stars of the original Ghostbusters arriving to reportedly film a cameo in the movie. But we didn’t want to spoil it since it hasn’t been quite as widespread as Dan Aykroyd announcing his cameo on Facebook. Find out more about the Ghostbusters cameo after the jump, but don’t read any further if you don’t want to know who is involved! Read More »

new Ghostbusters character names

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.

new Ghostbusters character names

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 »

Dan Aykroyd Ghostbusters cameo

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 »

Ghostbusters reboot proton pack

Last week director Paul Feig revealed images of the new gear that Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones would be wearing in the reboot of Ghostbusters. We got a glimpse of the new jumpsuits and also the proton packs they’ll be wearing, though we haven’t seen the stars suited up just yet.

But Ghostbusters fans are eager to get suited up in the new gear on their own as they’ve been asking Feig on Twitter to get a better look at the proton packs, so they can build their own. And Feig is a pretty nice guy, so he provided some new images with some helpful specs about the size of the neutrino wand and the pack itself.  See the Ghostbusters reboot proton pack images below!
