Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters remake was under fire the moment it was announced, with a certain segment of the original film’s fans going above and beyond the call of duty to prove that they could blindly and loudly hate with the best/worst of ’em. Gallons of digital ink have been spilled about this subject over the past year or so, but I think most of us can agree that the toxic response to the trailer has been wildly disproportionate with other major summer releases whose previews are equally unimpressive. Gee, I wonder what makes this movie different from so many others?
Anyway, early buzz suggests that Ghostbusters is a good movie and the first wave of reviews should be arriving on Sunday. In the meantime, let’s just enjoy the news that the film apparently has a scene where the leading ladies reference all of that ridculous online hate.

We’re a little over a week away from the release of Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters, and that mean the onslaught of TV advertisements is in full force. Since I record my TV shows, I don’t usually watch commercials, but in the process of fast-forwarding, I see a Ghostbusters TV spot at least once during every single show that I watch. But some new Ghostbusters TV spots just arrived that I hadn’t seen yet, and one of them reveals a twist on a familiar character unveiled for the first time. Read More »

All the paranormal know-how in the world won’t get you very far in a fight against a ghost unless you’ve got the right gear. So in the first Ghostbusters clip, the gang tests out some new equipment designed by one of their own, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), including a ghost chipper and a proton glove. Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones) is probably right to be scared of Jillian, even if it all kind of works out okay in the end. Watch the Ghostbusters clip below.

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.

The reboot of Ghostbusters is just under a month away, and Sony Pictures will see if they have a viable new franchise on their hands. Hopefully even the naysayers will give this movie a chance simply so they can have an opinion substantiated by seeing the movie instead of just bashing it based on the trailers. 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.
