The first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife brought the franchise back yet again, this time with a heavy dose of nostalgia in the vein of Super 8 and Stranger Things. One of the chief complaints about this first trailer is that it didn’t have any comedy, a trademark of the original franchise that hailed from bona fide comedians from the likes of Saturday Night Live, The Second City and other comedy institutions. But a slightly different international cut of the Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer does add a couple moments of humor, as well as a bit more proton pack action. Read More »

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 »
