Zombieland: Double Tap is in theaters now, bringing back Woody Harrelson, Jessie Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin for more zombie apocalypse action. It’s been 10 years since the original movie hit theaters, but writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (the duo behind the Deadpool franchise) were hired almost immediately to write the sequel. Since it took a decade to finally get this movie finished, the script went through plenty of changes as time passed, and one of those changes resulted in nixing a hilarious but tragic scene that would have given us a Ghostbusters reunion.
Beware, in order to discuss this scene in question, we’re providing a spoiler alert for a certain cameo made in the sequel. But if you saw the most recent theatrical trailer for Zombieland: Double Tap, then you already know what we’re talking about. Either way, you’ve been warned. Read More »

There’s a Ghostbusters-themed maze at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights event this year to celebrate the film’s 35th anniversary, and not long ago, there was something strange in that theme park neighborhood: two major players behind the film franchise.
Original Ghostbusters co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd and director Ivan Reitman dropped by to experience the spooks and scares for themselves, and a camera crew came along to capture their reactions. Check it out below.

There have been plenty of different Ghostbusters prop replicas released to consumers over the years. But most of them are focused on things like proton packs, PKE meters, and ghost traps.

In its fifth year, MondoCon is bigger than ever. In the convention’s program, co-founder and creative director Mitch Putnam mentioned this year’s con is “the first time it actually feels like we’ve hit our full potential.” Honestly, I couldn’t agree more. Movie, music, and comic book fans love Mondo for all of the rad collector items they make. Hell, I’m one of them. People line up for hours (and even camp out overnight) to get their hands on the latest releases, and this year was no different. I had the pleasure of attending this year’s two-day convention, which by far was their biggest and best event yet.

If there’s a Ghostbusters project brewing, you better believe that Dan Aykroyd will be involved with it in some capacity. Out of everyone involved with the original film, Aykroyd is the biggest cheerleader, spending the last few decades preaching from the holy book of all-things-Ghostbusters. Which means it was only a matter of time before we learned Aykroyd would appear in Ghostbusters 2020, the upcoming Ghostbusters sequel/reboot from Jason Reitman. In addition to that, Winston Zeddemore himself, Ernie Hudson, confirmed his return as well. In fact, it sounds like everyone is coming back at this point, except for (maybe) Bill Murray.
