Try to Battle My Boys? That’s Not Legal: In Defense of ‘Ghostbusters II’

I’m about to say something that I never thought I would say in my entire life. It makes me sick to my stomach to even type such heresy, but here goes: Bill Murray is wrong. I’m getting out ahead of all the impending ‘Ghostbusters II’ hate right now. ‘Ghostbusters II’ is not a bad sequel. It’s not a great sequel either, but it’s a totally satisfying follow-up. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel the way the first film did by blending of horror, science-fiction, and comedy into a unique and irresistible genre hybrid. But it keeps things rolling in a frothy, entertaining, and occasionally profound way. (You heard me.)

The ‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer is a Lot Like ‘Interstellar’ and Here’s the Video to Prove It

EDIT

If you thought the first trailer for Josh Trank’s ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot was suspiciously similar to the trailers for Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar,’ you weren’t alone! Although both films couldn’t seem more different on the outside, they both employed their fair share of identical movie marketing tropes ... and it took less than a day for someone to mash them up. Good job, internet!

The latest poster for ‘Insurgent’ continues the trend we’ve seen throughout the all of the film’s marketing: showcase Shailene Woodley and a lot of broken glass and the kids will come. Oh, yeah. And Theo James, too. But c’mon, who really cares about that guy when you have the star of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ doing her best Chow Yun-Fat impression?

It’s still not 100% confirmed that we’ll finally see Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Justice League Dark’ on the big screen—recently, the filmmaker confirmed that the script has been delivered to Warner Bros. and they’re just waiting on an official green light. But for those anxious to know which of the dark superheroes we might see in the film, the lineup has apparently been revealed.

‘Rings’ Gets a Release Date, ‘Paranormal Activity 5’ and ‘Friday the 13th’ Get Rescheduled

DreamWorks
In a move that should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, Paramount has delayed the release of ‘Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension’ yet again. Meanwhile, the studio is also mixing up their horror schedule a bit, announcing an official release date for ‘The Ring’ reboot, ‘Rings,’ and moving up the release of their new ‘Friday the 13th’ installment. Given that the shifting of ‘Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension’ has become something of a running joke, we wouldn’t be shocked if the date changes at least a few more times before this thing finally hits theaters—if it ever does.

‘The Huntsman’ Only Has Room For Two Out of Seven of Those Friendly Dwarfs

We already knew that ‘The Huntsman’ wouldn’t feature the return of Kristen Stewart’s Snow White (it is called ‘The Huntsman,’ after all), but as it turns out, the film also won’t have many of her friendly dwarves, either—well, it won’t bring back all seven of them, anyway. Instead, the upcoming sequel will only have two of the dwarves, as if Universal looked at the sequel and said, “No dwarves, thanks. You know what? On second thought, we’ll take just a couple, you know, on the side.”

‘Aquaman’ Star Jason Momoa on Zack Snyder’s Jaw-Dropping Plan for the DC Universe

EDIT

Jason Momoa really is ideal casting for the role of ‘Aquaman’ hero Arthur Curry—he may not be blonde or have short hair or a clean-shaved, typical superhero look, but there’s something about his essence and appeal that makes him the perfect candidate. Momoa just looks like he was born to play some sort of sea God. We weren’t supposed to know about his casting in the film until 2016, but those beans were spilled a bit early, and now Momoa has opened up once again about his casting in the film, whether or not he’ll change his hair for the part (he won’t), and ‘Batman vs. Superman’ director Zack Snyder’s exciting plans for the DC universe.

There’s Still a Role in the New ‘Ghostbusters’ For Bill Murray

So Sony and director Paul Feig have found their new Ghostbusters: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. This whole idea of an all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot came together after the passing of original series star and co-writer Harold Ramis, when director Ivan Reitman relinquished the franchise’s director’s chair and everyone involved finally gave up on trying to convince stubborn (and probably very wise) Bill Murray to make a second sequel to the original film.
