Upcoming animated Ghostbusters movie to be from POV of the ghosts

You know, I actually liked the 2016 GHOSTBUSTERS remake. So I was disappointed when I found out that Sony wouldn't be pursuing a sequel and instead would producing an animated feature instead. While they've stated that a sequel is on the table, at this point it seems unlikely. So, if that's the case, what's the animated film going to be about anyway? Besides...

Harold Ramis' daughter on including a CG Egon Spengler in next Ghostbusters

We're entering a strange world, where deceased actors can be brought back through the magic of visual effects to take part in movies years, even decades, after their deaths. In the case of Paul Walker , who passed away in a tragic accident after already completing half of his work on FURIOUS 7, such measures are understandable, but resurrecting Peter Cushing to reprise his role...

Study discovers obvious: diverse casting increases box office potential

The cineplexes have never been more diverse. From the multiracial and female led STAR WARS films, to the "surprise" smash successes of WONDER WOMAN, HIDDEN FIGURES, and GET OUT, to the improbable billion-dollar FAST AND FURIOUS franchise, to the anticipation of BLACK PANTHER and CAPTAIN MARVEL, it seems films are only getting more diverse - which is only a good thing. Not only...

Ivan Reitman weighs in on the Ghostbusters franchise moving forward

To the surprise of probably no one who regularly reads this site, I actually really enjoyed the 2016 all-female GHOSTBUSTERS reboot. While I know it has faults (some draggy improv-heavy pacing), and in my opinion isn't better than the original (though I appreciate they have different comic sensibilities), it still is fun and enjoyable. I love the cast (though it is a bit unfortunate...

Dan Aykroyd continues to lambaste Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot

Over the weekend, original Ghostbuster, Dan Aykroyd , spoke unceremoniously on Sunday Brunch  about Paul Feig 's female-led GHOSTBUSTERS reboot. On the show, Aykroyd vented the following statement regarding what he deemed to be Feig's poor decision making: The girls are great in it.

Dan Aykroyd blames Paul Feig for $40 million Ghostbusters reshoots

There was a lot of negativity surrounding the GHOSTBUSTERS remake when it first came out, and it’s not wrong to come to the conclusion that negativity impacted the movie. Though receiving solid reviews the movie failed to recoup its otherworldly production costs. According to former Ghostbuster, Dan Aykroyd , a big reason for that is director Paul Feig and needless to say the actor...

Paul Feig states that engaging with Ghostbusters trolls was a big mistake

There's no doubt that the female-led GHOSTBUSTERS reboot was met with a special brand of resistance the moment that news of its existence hit the internet. While a large amount of individuals were excited for the film, it felt as if for a very long time that those who were vehemently opposed to the film had the louder voice. Thinking back on it, I can recall  Melissa...

Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters VR: Now Hiring releases new, fun teaser

I have high hopes for VR. While right now it seems to be a bit of a novelty (with some notable exceptions), I think this is the closest we've been to actually making VR a viable, consumer product. And next stop, HOLODECK! ...anyway. A new VR game GHOSTBUSTERS VR: NOW HIRING is coming out, where you get to play as a newly hired Ghostbuster. This is similar to the plot of the...

Ivan Reitman says more Ghostbusters movies are in development

After all of the vitriol directed towards Paul Feig 's GHOSTBUSTERS on the road to its release, it seemed as though the film would either have to be a steaming pile of garbage or a comedic masterpiece, but the final product wound up generating little emotion from me one way or another. Other opinions may differ, but I didn't find GHOSTBUSTERS to be good or bad, it...
