Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Ghostbusters: Afterlife was meant to be released last summer, but thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the movie was pushed back to March 2021, and delayed again to a summer release yet again in June. While we’re still waiting to see what the Ghostbusters sequel will bring to the table with a story set roughly 30 years after the events of the first two movies, director Jason Reitman may have already gotten all the praise he’ll need for the movie from his father, original franchise director Ivan Reitman.

John Belushi Documentary

Following a deep dive into the history and legacy of The Comedy Store, Showtime has another chronicle of a comedy staple who left us far too soon.

John Belushi was a tour de force. After breaking out on Saturday Night Live and National Lampoon’s Animal House, Belushi became one of the biggest comedy stars in the world. He was the kind of guy everyone wanted to have a beer with. But while there was this wrecking ball of comedic energy on the outside, on the inside, Belushi was dealing with his own demons, and his incredible fame would only feed them with alcohol and drugs. Showtime’s new documentary Belushi will chronicle all the comedian’s highs and lows, and you can see the first trailer right now. Read More »
