BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
I don’t believe that Paul Feig and his cast of undoubtedly hilarious women set out to make a lightning rod of social justice with Ghostbusters. I believe they set out to make an entertaining, funny, goofy and scary update of a story that they love as much as we do, a Ghostbusters for a new generation.
Since the future appears very bright for Sony’s Ghostbusters franchise, let’s take a moment to slap on a proton pack and assess where we stand. Cue up the Ray Parker Jr. CD and dive in to our What We Know So Far for the Ghostbusters reboot, which is heading to theaters on July 22, 2016.
Ever since it was announced that Ghostbusters would be rebooted with an all-female main cast, the film has been the subject of a fairly loud negative reaction. Here's What Paul Feig Thinks of it all.
Hollywood doesn’t always have the greatest track record when it comes to costumes for women – particularly when it comes to big action movies and blockbuster franchises.
We’re now just a few months away from the theatrical release of director Paul Feig’s Ghostsbusters, and while we’ve seen a good bit of footage and a handful of images from the movie, big details are also being kept purposefully mysterious and hidden prior to the film’s arrival.
Director Paul Feig has explained in the past why his new version of the Ghostbusters is a reboot instead of a direct sequel: he and co-writer Katie Dippold didn’t like the idea of his characters simply being handed technology, and wanted to give them the chance to build it all themselves.
Merchandise tie-ins with movies are nothing new. There will always be products that companies try to sell us by relating it to a popular film. Sony, however, takes this idea to new heights.
Bill Murray went off script when he filmed his Ghostbusters cameo. And rather than being furious, Paul Feig has now admitted that it was hilarious.
We've only recently had our first good look at Paul Feig's upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, and we don't really know these characters yet, but Melissa McCarthy almost played someone entirely different.
While the cast of the Ghostbusters reboot has been controversial to say the least, that controversy is one of the reasons that the new film has become so highly anticipated. All eyes are on Ghostbusters’ four lead women to see how the film will turn out.
Out of all of the differences between Paul Feig's Ghostbusters and the original reincarnation, there's one similarity they'll be sharing - as both films have used practical effects to varying degrees. Read on to find out why.
We got our first good look at the Ghostbusters reboot with the new trailers that showed up this week, and it appears to be packed with nods to the original, and there is a very good reason for that.
The Ray Parker Jr.-performed Ghostbusters theme song is just as iconic as proton packs and tan jumpsuits in the horror-comedy franchise – but there has been some question in the fan community as to how it would be used in director Paul Feig’s upcoming reboot.
As seen in not only the movies but the animated television shows as well, the world of Ghostbusters isn’t merely limited to just one kind of ghost. Many are just standard human-like apparitions, but there is the occasional few who not only look a bit different, but also possess different abilities.
To further stoke our Ghostbusters excitement, a new viral site has launched to provide us with seemingly endless bits of insight about the upcoming reboot, including some behind-the-scenes footage.
From everything that we know, the events of the original two Ghostbusters movies won’t inform the action of Feig’s pending Ghostbusters. But that doesn’t mean the new trailer that just dropped doesn’t have clever nods and asides around each corner
Ivan Reitman, who helmed the original two Ghostbusters movies back in 1984 and 1989, respectively, was attached to helm the next chapter of the franchise all the way back in 2010 - but all that changed when Harold Ramis died and Reitman stepped away from the project’s director’s chair.
For many years, the next chapter of the Ghostbusters franchise was being developed as Ghostbusters 3 - a direct sequel to Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters 2 that would see the original team passing the torch to a new generation. That idea went away circa August 2014, but this left fans asking a simple question: why choose a reboot over a sequel?
It’s been more than 25 years since the last time we saw a team of Ghostbusters grace the big screen – and a great deal of that time was spent watching the franchise’s next installment battle its way out of development hell. The wait is now almost over, however, and nothing spells that out quite like an exciting debut trailer!
When the Ghostbusters return to the screen this summer, nearly everything about the movie will be different. The story is a completely fresh take on the material but there may be one thing that will remain the same.
