Bridesmaids Sequel

Bridesmaids was a knockout comedy hit in 2011, raking in over $169 million domestically and another $119.2 million internationally, which is pretty damn good for an R-rated romantic comedy. That kind of success and the warm reception from both critics and audiences has resulted in some demand for a sequel over the years. But while director Paul Feig appreciates the love for the movie from fans, he’s not necessarily too keen on putting one together just for the hell of it, and he has a good reason. Read More »

ghosbusters reboot directors cut

Now that the Snyder Cut of Justice League is finally happening after years of fan outcry, is it time to start asking for other alternate movie cuts? No, it’s not, but people will do it anyway. Case in point: someone jokingly asked for a Paul Feig cut of Justice League, and Feig used the opportunity to reveal that there’s an alternate cut of his Ghostbusters reboot, aka Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. A very long alternate cut.

last christmas

Paul Feig was not happy that the internet guessed the twist in Last Christmas. But sometimes, in the words of the great George Michael, you gotta have faith. Of course, there was a chance that someone would guess the premise of Last Christmas, which takes its inspiration from the Wham! song of the same name, but that Feig was “not pleased” that audiences wouldn’t get the chance to be blown away as he was when he read Emma Thompson’s script.

“I was just really emotional when I read it. It really came as a surprise,” Feig told /Film in an interview in conjunction with the Last Christmas Blu-ray and Digital releases. “I couldn’t even read the last five pages, I was so thrown and blown away by what happened.”

/Film spoke with Feig about Last Christmas for the film’s Blu-ray and Digital release, and the relative ease that he moves between genre, from the raunchy female-led comedy of Bridesmaids, to a spy comedy, to the soapy brilliance of A Simple Favor. “Sky’s the limit, I just love genres,” Feig said. We spoke with Feig about dabbling with genre, the legacy of George Michael, and how everything the director does all goes back to Freaks and Geeks.

In a new interview, the filmmaker reveals he’s currently working on a script rewrite, and he hopes that the film will be his next if all goes according to plan.

dark army dark universe

Universal is sitting on a horror goldmine: the Universal Monsters. Sadly, they haven’t been able to figure out what the hell to do with them. Their initial attempt to launch the Dark Universe with The Mummy failed immediately. Now, they’re taking a different approach. They have Leigh Whannell’s Invisible Man on the horizon. And then there’s the mysterious Dark Army, a film from Paul Feig. Feig’s movie will feature both classic Universal Monsters and new characters, but details on the project have been vague at best.

Feig opened up in a new interview about what he’s trying to do with the movie, and to a Universal Monsters fan like myself, it sounds exciting.

Last Christmas Trailer

When the first trailer for Last Christmas arrived, there was an entire bumper dedicated to the fact that the movie featured the music of the late George Michael. Of course, that was probably already assumed since the movie’s title comes straight from a Christmas song that he wrote, produced and performed when he was part of the English pop duo Wham!. But a new Last Christmas trailer really leans into that fact by directly citing the song as inspiration for the movie written by Emma Thompson, who also stars in the movie with Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding. Watch below! Read More »

dark army

Is the Dark Universe about to rise from the grave, resurrected by mad scientist Paul Feig? Kind of! Universal has been trying to reboot their classic monsters for a while, and came up with a big, dumb plan for a cinematic universe that launched with The Mummy starring Tom Cruise. But no one liked it! And a stake was driven through the heart of the Dark Universe. Now, Universal is trying-out individual films, like Leigh Whannell’s Invisible Man. But that’s apparently not the only Universal Monsters-themed film on the horizon. Paul Feig is set to direct Dark Army, which will reportedly feature classic Universal monsters.
