9 Times Melissa McCarthy Was Everything (Including "The Kitchen")

9 Times Melissa McCarthy Was Everything (Including "The Kitchen")

Melissa McCarthy is one of the most versatile and talented actors working today. Comedy, drama, action, sweet, spicy, salty, dirty, or squeaky clean, she can play anything. So with her anchoring the crime drama The Kitchen coming out this weekend, it seems like the proper time to highlight some of her best work. Let's start […]

Bill Murray Talks 'Ghostbusters' Relationships, Jason Reitman's 'Ghostbusters 3'

It wasn't long ago when Bill Murray scoffed at doing another Ghostbusters, but he's raring to go again with the upcoming Jason Reitman Sony film. While Murray is at the Cannes Film Festival promoting the upcoming Jim Jarmusch zombie gorefest The Dead Don't Die, Indiewire asked him about how he felt about the Ghostbusters franchise. […]

'Ghostbusters': Jason Reitman Back Peddles, Clarifies 'Back To Fans' Comment

Good for Jason Reitman, we guess, attempting to clarify his comments about wanting to "hand the movie back to fans" regarding his Ghostbusters 3 project at Sony, which will theoretically completely ignore the 2016 all-female version. Considering how heated Ghostbusters Gate got when the initial 2016 film was announced, it seemed like Reitman (who's father Ivan Reitman directed […]

Paul Feig Weighs in on 'Ghostbusters 3', Supports Leslie Jones

Paul Feig, director of 2016's all-female Ghostbusters film, has finally weighed in on the current hot topic item- Ghostbusters 3, and Leslie Jones' angry reactionary tweet. After all the ectoplasm vitriol lobbed towards the cast and crew of the 2016 Ghostbusters film, we didn't really think Jones' strongly worded tweet needed an explanation. But judging by the sheer amount of tweets […]

Joel McHale to Host Netflix's Coincidentally Titled The Joel McHale Show

Comedian/actor Joel McHale is returning to the role that made him famous. No, I'm not talking Jeff Winger from Community (though we 're still owed a movie) or whoever it was he played in CBS' it-took-longer-for-me-to-type-this-than-the-show-lasted The Great Indoors. I'm talking the role he played throughout all 12 seasons of E!'s The Soup: himself – […]

Dan Aykroyd Walks Back Attack On Ghostbusters Director Paul Feig, Then Walks Forward Again

This weekend, Dan Aykroyd appeared on U.K.'s show Sunday Brunch and trashed Ghostbusters: Answer The Call director Paul Feig, claiming that the director refused to listen to the advice of producers, spent tens of millions of dollars on reshoots, and ruined the film's chances of a sequel, making him no longer welcome at Sony. Aykroyd said Sunday: "[Ghostbusters] […]

Paul Feig Says He'd Like To Do A Ghostbusters 2

Comedy sequels are pretty standard fare when it comes to the genre. That's why it seems anytime we get a mild hit on our hands, we can expect a continuation to come before too long. That is why I don't think it is unreasonable to think that Ghostbusters might get one some time in the […]

New Ghostbusters May Be Banned In China

The new Ghosbusters may not be seen by Chinese audiences any time soon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film has been banned because of a long-standing prohibition on films that "promote cults or superstition" which dates back to the early days of Communist rule. But a source also tells them the film may have […]

The Gadgets Of The Ghostbusters

When I was a kid, I wanted a Proton-Pack from Ghostbusters. They looked awesome and were a huge part of the movie. With the release of the new Ghostbusters coming up, the film has had to up their game when it comes to gadgets and from the look of the featurette below, they have. Proton […]

Comedy Team Re-Mans The Ghostbusters Trailer

While some have been reasonably critical of the new Ghostbusters for a variety of reasons — a dim view of remakes in general, director Paul Feig's merits as a filmmaker, etc — some of the response has been decidedly livid about the new film's four main characters being played exclusively by women. It's also created […]

New Ghostbusters Featurette Takes A Look At The New Ecto-1

In a new Ghostbusters featurette, director Paul Feig and the cast discuss the new Ecto-1. Built from a 1980s Cadillac hearse, the new car nods to the original film's converted ambulance while creating a new look all its own. And, if nothing else, it looks boss driving around town. [youtube][/youtube] Ghostbusters opens on July 15th.

Dan Aykroyd Praises New Ghostbusters

While the debate over the merits of the upcoming Ghostbusters remake continues, one voice has emerged offering a positive opinion of the new film: co-creator Dan Aykroyd. Aykroyd, along with Saturday Night Live cohort John Belushi, developed the project before Belushi's death. Originally envisioned as a comedy in which a couple of blue-collar "Ghostmashers" travel […]

Will A Second Ghostbusters International Trailer Change Opinions?

The Internet seems fiercely divided on this new Ghostbusters flick. Paul Feig is a hit-or-miss comedy director and his better jokes don't really translate in trailers. Another international trailer has surfaced which seems to be better paced than the US version, but it remains to be seen if it will change opinions on the film, […]
