BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Spook Central asks devoted fans of Ghostbusters to share their theories on what Ivan Reitman's action-comedy is really all about. What is the relevance of the Ghostbuster logo? Is the movie about the taboo habit of smoking? Is it all about sex? Is Slimer suffering from attention deficit disorder? I
As a video representation of a cinematic infographic, however, it’s pretty successful, as it lays all of its movie facts out in sleek, fun and non-copyright infringing ways. I bet they could do an entire video just based on Jane Got a Gun alone.
Can you identify the famous character by their weapons? There's a poster that challenges pop culture fans to do just that, featuring everything from swords to knives to chainsaws and a number of other recognizable weapons from well known characters. These are the weapons that have given heroes and villains the edge they needed to get ahead, to varying degrees of success, of course.
Like the last bit of news we heard on Dan Aykroyd's long promised—or long threatened, depending on how you look at it—Ghostbusters III, the latest update comes not from a trusted industry trade, but from a local news team. WIVB4 of New York snagged a few moments with Aykroyd as he signed bottles at a liquor store in Amherst, promoting his Crystal Head Vodka.
This is the first time Aykroyd has gone on record to confirm that Murray will not be involved in any sequel. And while the comedian tells the interviewer that they’re “not going to do a movie that exploits the franchise,” I think the only reasonable thing to do at this point is cut your loses and stop all of this foolish talk. No one wants to see a Ghostbusters film without Murray. We’re not even sure we’re be interested in Ghostbusters 3 with Murray on the team.
As a medium, film is one that is eternally looking back. Whether it be mining past hits for sure-to-score remakes, alluding to past works with visuals or music, or describing contemporary actors along the lines of well established stars, the film industry loves to revel in its own history. Inspired by moviemaking's inherent fascination with its own past...
The story follows a "modern-day, militaristic and gritty approach to fighting the supernatural," and somehow avoids a copyright claim by following a special ops groups that fights the evil ghosts that have taken over Manhattan. Yes, the same Manhattan that the Ghostbusters protected. I don't know how they're getting away with it either
Things are looking less certain for the third Ghostbusters, if what Sigourney Weaver said in this recent interview is true. Ghostbusters III may be without a cast if Bill Murray doesn’t sign on to join the rest of the original cast members in the film.
Ghostbusters is returning to the big screen, and fortunately, not in the form of a remake (yet, anyway). For many of us, spending Halloween in a theater watching three scientists (and one guy willing to believe anything if there’s a steady paycheck involved) bust ghosts around New York City sounds ideal. From the sound of it, we’ll be getting the opportunity to do just that this year.
A video has emerged on the web to remind us how great movies used to be made and that even without a third, we still have Ghostbusters 1 & 2 that still satisfy as if fresh off the presses. This new video showcases some early puppet tests of everyone’s favorite goofy ghoul, Slimer. Piloted by Robin Shelby, it’s interesting and slightly unnerving.
The iconic firehouse used in the Ghostbusters films is actually a real, working, New York City firehouse. Or at least it has been. New York Mayor Bloomberg is about to shut it down. Budget cuts are, of course to blame but there's some hope that they may be able to save it.
Bill Murray showed up on the Satellite broadcast Howard Stern show this morning and, because Howard is kind of a geek, he got asked about Ghostbusters 3. Bad news ghostbusting fans, he still doesn’t seem the least bit interested in doing this movie.
The movie is supposed to be about the original Ghostbusters teaming up with a new generation of slime-fighters, and that means finding young Hollywood talent to fill out those roles. Young Hollywood talent like… Ashton Kutcher? Ivan Reitman seems to think that’s a good idea.
It’s really to early to be certain that Ghostbusters 3 is really happening, but whether it ‘ll ever truly finally be made or not there’s been a lot of movement on the project. They may even be thinking about castin
There’s been almost no real movement on the eagerly anticipated, long-gestating Ghostbusters 3 for months. There’s been no real reason to believe the movie, despite the best intentions
Bill Murray continues to play the spoiler when it comes to putting together a new Ghostbusters movie, but that doesn’t mean he won’t still fit into his old ghost busting uniform
I’m not sure I believe Ghostbusters 3 will ever happen. Bill Murray has been pretty adamantly against it for awhile now, and there’s no movie without Bill Murray. But Dan Akyroyd
Improv Everywhere have struck again! The Manhattan-based comedy troupe is best known for causing chaos in a Best Buy simply by having 80 "agents" enter the store dressed similarly
Getting the chance to sit with Murray at a press junket for his newest film, Get Low, which is currently being screened as part of the Tribeca Film Festival, the subject was brought up yet again
Addressing his role in the sequel Murray says, “I told them if they killed me off in the first reel I’d do it. So now they figured out a way to kill me off in the first reel.” Since he said it on national television
So it’s really starting to look like Ghostbusters 3 is a go, but we’re living in a post-Avatar world which means just about anyone making a big summer tentpole like this is bound to be, must take things up a notch. For Ghostbusters 3, that may mean 3D
While it is all speculation at this point and all of it could be completely wrong, nothing I have heard so far really instills a lot of confidence that they can get the magic back 20 years later. Like it or not, however
Just a quick note. There’s a story floating around on several different sites which claims the third Ghostubsters has been titled G3. It’s a horrible name but, no need to panic. It’s a lie
And while we've known for a while that there would be new, young Ghostbusters, and some of them would be female, Aykroyd expressed his ideal gender mix for the team: "I hope it's a nice mix, maybe two guys and two girls"
The fact that Bill Murray may potentially be involved, in any way shape or form, with a third Ghostbuster movie still seems like a bit of a dream. This guy’s moved on to bigger and better things at this point
