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.)

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.

Let’s go back. Back in time before Paul Feig swooped in to direct an all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot which we’re actually excited about. Back in time to when the long-gestating ‘Ghostbusters 3’ was still a possibility, a sequel that most people didn’t really want. Back here in the land that time forgot, original ‘Ghostbusters’ director and producer Ivan Reitman was planning to helm the long-delayed third installment in the franchise, and according to some recently uncovered e-mails from Sony, we now know what that sequel would have been called—and who might have starred in it.

Just yesterday came word that Warner Bros. have pushed the release date for ‘Jungle Book: Origins’ back to 2017, giving them a whole two years of breathing room following the release of Disney’s own live-action version of ‘The Jungle Book.’ And right on the heels of that news Disney has released the first official logo for Jon Favreau’s ‘The Jungle Book,’ along with some lovely concept art.

‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Clip Revisits the Old Apartment for a Wacky Cameo

This week we learned that Jennifer Lawrence opted to have her cameo cut from 'Dumb and Dumber To' for reasons that may become clear to you depending on how you feel when you see the film for yourself (or it may disappoint you if you end up enjoying it, like our own Mike Ryan). But there's one cameo that did remain in the film, and although it's a pretty big one, audiences won't be able to recognize the actor -- much like Cate Blanchett's cameo in 'Hot Fuzz.' The clip is now online and labeled merely as "Old Apartment," with nothing about the notable cameo mentioned at all.

It's a tale as old as TV, that the cancellation of one series leads to speculation of a cinematic return, or a new outlet to continue the story. Starz's cancelled 'Magic City' might be the craziest example we've heard yet, however, returning the 1960's Jeffrey Dean Morgan Miami crime drama to the big screen, and adding the likes of Bruce Willis and Bill Murray!

Bill Murray Brings His Charm Offensive to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Last week, 'St. Vincent' star Bill Murray appeared on 'The Late Show' in a visit that was so good, so rich, and so weird, that we all but demanded that the comedian take over the series when host David Letterman departs. Perhaps we were a bit too hasty with that demand, because Murray has now brought his late night skills to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' where they were just as charming as ever.

Maybe Bill Murray Should Just Host 'The Late Show' Now

Although we understand that 'The Late Show' will be getting a bit of a makeover when long-time host David Letterman exits later this year, and while we're extremely excited that Stephen Colbert is taking over the post, we still have a teensy idea: maybe Bill Murray could host it? Or just appear on every single episode? Does Colbert need a sidekick? He has to, right?

Bill Murray has been well-established throughout pop culture as a legendary eccentric, whose next feats might well include emerging from your bowl of soup, or taking a flamethrower to your next karaoke jam, so what's next? Why, a TV yuletide special with 'Lost in Translation' director Sofia Coppola, featuring the erstwhile 'St. Vincent' crooning Christmas carols, of course!

Early reports on 'SNL' season 40's inaugural three hosts pegged 'Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt and comedian Sarah Silverman, though it seems reports of series alum Bill Murray were only half-right. 'SNL' has indeed tapped a legendary departed cast member for its third season 40 host, that of more recent alumni Bill Hader!
