We interview Melissa McCarthy, Paul Feig and more from Ghostbusters!

07.12.2016

Are you ready for GHOSTBUSTERS? Well, sure there are a number of you who aren't and it's all well and good. For everyone else however, the spooky comedy hits theatres this Friday and it's a whole lot of fun. Paul Feig brings Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones to the big screen to battle supernatural forces. In addition, Chris Hemsworth shows up to add a ton of laughs to the preceedings.

Recently, we had the opportunity to talk with Mr. Feig, as well as McCartney, McKinnon and Jones in preparation for Friday's release. It's always great to chat with Paul, who opened up about the challenges bringing this to the big screen - and we all know there have been a few. The director also opened up about just how much CGI is used, as well as the mix of practical effects.

Next up we spoke to Melissa McCarthy about her role and how much she loved the original films. It's always a great experience to chat with McCarthy, she really is about as funny and kindhearted as you can get. And when it comes to sequels, while she didn't say for sure because it all depends on the box office, she's be thrilled to return. When it comes to her co-stars, McKinnon and Jones clearly were having a blast as they discussed working with Feig, and whether or not they are truly afraid of ghosts.

GHOSTBUSTERS will be haunting theatres this Friday!

Puff pieces are just that, not meant to be serious

Idk what handlink75 was talking about, but these 4 minute interviews give you enough time to ask like 3 stupid questions and that's all. You aren't going to ask "was it true nobody got along" or something stupid like that. But then again there isn't any time to ask/say anything to get people interested in the movie either. I never understood the point of these rapid interviews as they serve no purpose to the people watching them. The most obvious questions like "did you grow up fans of the

I never understood the point of these rapid interviews as they serve no purpose to the people watching them. The most obvious questions like "did you grow up fans of the original" are just puff questions. What are they going to say "no, I hated the originals and can make it better"? Of course not. I mean good on ya for getting a chance to meet these guys but can you explain the purpose of these interviews for the people that don't get their purpose?

I saw the movie and it's just odd

The cast couldn't have gotten along offset because they had zero chemistry on screen. The jokes were really lame, like they were made for a childrens movie. That is what this movie was, a kids movie. Groin shots, cartoon ghosts, it really did feel like a rejected Scooby Doo movie. The saving grace was Hemsworth though, he made it go from a 1/10 to a 4/10. And that isn't good because it backfires of the whole point of the movie. When a movie is made to empower women, why is the only funny person

Way to avoid the hard questions...

How are you going to keep JoBlo essential to it's readers/viewers if you don't have the guts to ask the real questions we want to hear the answers to? I think it's a big story when there is a strategic plan by Sony and the filmmakers to paint every Ghostbusters naysayer as misogynistic. When your primary goal when interviewing is to secure the next interview, it's time to start looking in the mirror and asking why you're in this business at all.

The hard questions? It's fucking Ghostbusters, not the 2016 Election.

You get four minutes per person at a TV-style junket. Just what kind of depth are you looking for in an interview like that? I'd love to see you sit down and work some journalistic magic to uncover this epic conspiracy of yours in four minutes. We sat down with the cast. We talked about the film, which is what they are there to discuss. In a longer format interview you can certainly get in some more difficult and provoking questions.
