The new Ghostbusters has already attracted more than its share of skeptics and outright haters, despite the fact that it won’t actually hit theaters for another several weeks. But it looks like there are plenty of others who are excited for Paul Feig‘s reboot of the horror-comedy classic. Early tracking numbers indicate Ghostbusters could open to as much as $50 million in North America. It’s not a spectacular number, but it’s not a disastrous one either. Read More »

With just three weeks left until the new Ghostbusters hits theaters, plenty of TV spots are started to hit the air, trying to pull in as many moviegoers as possible. There’s no doubt the movie is going to make some bank in its opening weekend, but will it be the hit that Sony Pictures hopes it will be?
As a huge fan of the original Ghostbusters, I want to see a new franchise succeed, but the more footage of the comedy from the movie I see, the more worried I get. These new Ghostbusters TV spots don’t do much to assuage those fears, and that’s coming from someone who really likes the work Paul Feig has done. Having said that, the action, visuals, gadgets and more all look outstanding.

Before Spy was released into theaters, writer-director Paul Feig already knew he wanted to make a sequel, and what it would be about. The director had hoped to turn The Heat into a franchise–something Sandra Bullock wasn’t onboard with–but it looks like he may get his wish with a Spy 2. The director of this summer’s Ghostbusters reboot is adamant about making the sequel, which would involve more of Rick Ford (Jason Statham), the one and only man who can walk through fire, waterski blindfolded, and take up piano at a late age.
Below, learn more about the Spy sequel.

If the box office numbers turn out well, we’ll obviously be looking at Ghostbusters sequels, and Melissa McCarthy is ready to answer the call as many times as the phone rings.

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.
