The Ghostbusters reboot/remake, or whatever you want to call it, is coming this summer. We already know there’s plenty of merchandising coming for the new movie because director Paul Feig already showed off some Ghostbusters action figures of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. But I don’t think anyone was expecting this yet.
Ghostbusters fans were rather pleased to get a LEGO set commemorating the titular paranormal exterminators and their iconic car, the revamped classic ambulance known as the Ecto-1. The vehicle got a pretty sweet companion set in the form of the Ghostbsuters’ firehouse this year, and now they’ll both have some company in the form of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters.
The first photos of the set featuring the team’s new vehicle and some awesome minifigures have been revealed and you can see them below. But beware, because one piece of the set gives away a bit of a spoiler. 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.

So far we’ve only gotten one official look at the new Ghostbusters team composed of Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones. But that changes today as a new promotional photo has surfaced. It doesn’t look to be from the movie since they’re posing for the photo, but it’s still a pretty slick little snapshot of the team with some ominous mist around them. Check out the new Ghostbusters reboot photo below! Read More »
Even though the forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot doesn’t have any narrative ties to the original franchise, there will still be plenty for original fans to sink their teeth into. All of the surviving Ghostbusters (Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson) have cameos along with a couple other cast members (but not Rick Moranis). But one more cameo from a familiar Ghostbusters face might be on the table.
A new rumor says that a Slimer cameo will be brought into the Ghostbusters reboot, but one conflicting, key source has created some doubt as to whether that will actually happen. Find out more below! Read More »

Rick Moranis fans, rejoice! Well, maybe not just yet, but there’s hope for the future. The 62-year-old actor, known for his splendid work in Parenthood, Ghostbusters, Spaceballs, Little Shop of Horrors, My Blue Heaven, Streets of Fire, and Strange Brew, isn’t opposed to coming out of retirement. But don’t expect to see a Rick Moranis Ghostbusters cameo in Paul Feig’s upcoming franchise reboot.

Over the past couple months, we’ve reported on a few cameos being made in Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters by cast members of the original 1984 paranormal comedy. However, this hasn’t been something that has pleased us.
We would much rather these cameos were surprises when seeing the movie. But when all the trades, blogs and Ghostbusters fans are spreading the news like wildfire without any regard for spoilers, it doesn’t make much sense for us to try to keep it secret.
And director Paul Feig has succumbed to this same problem as he has just revealed on Twitter that… Read More »
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 »
In Paul Feig‘s comedy Spy, Rose Byrne played the mostly villainous character Rayna, but even a character with a cold soul cracks up when she’s in the same room with a bunch of accomplished comedians. And so we’ve got this clip from a Spy gag reel drawn from the film’s home video release, which is available from digital HD outlets today.
Here Rose Byrne, herself a very accomplished comedian, loses it more than a few times while shooting various scenes in the film. Check out part of the reel — one of two on the home release — below. Read More »
