In early 1984, the team behind ‘Ghostbusters’ was fairly confident that they had a hit. Test screenings had gone well, but for director Ivan Reitman, something was missing. What Reitman wanted was a song, only 20 seconds or so in length, near the opening of the film as the then soon-to-be Ghostbusters -- Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) and Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) –- enter the New York Public Library.

The biggest problem with the concept of 'Ghostbusters 3' is the fact that 'Ghostbusters' still very much exists and is pretty much perfect. This fact will be reconfirmed when the original is re-released later this summer as part of the film's 30th anniversary celebration, which will also include a new Blu-ray release.

A great movie feels like alchemy -- you can't see the seams in the construction. That's why it's always fun to discover B-roll of a bonafide classic and see how that delicious, perfect sausage was made. These unearthed alternate takes from the set of 'Ghostbusters' don't feel entirely real, mainly because it's hard to imagine such a perfect movie not appearing out of thin air, fully formed.

It’s a little surprising that, with a huge summer-movie-season-comedy like ‘Neighbors’ opening in theaters this weekend, there hasn’t been more talk about the other movie titled ‘Neighbors,’ even in passing. Well, that’s not entirely true, because I’ve mentioned it a couple of times in conversation and the response has been usually some sort of version of a blank stare.
Maybe the people who are old enough to remember 1981’s 'Neighbors' don’t want to remember 'Neighbors,' for a plethora of reasons. The most obvious: It was John Belushi’s last film before dying of a speedball overdose.

Released in 1991, 'My Girl' tells the story of 11 year-old Vada Sultenfuss (Anna Chlumsky), who is coming of age in the summer of 1972 with her best friend, Thomas J., played by young star Macaulay Culkin. The film, which also reunited 'Trading Places' stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd, became an instant classic and a hit among critics and audiences alike. 23 years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved movie and see what they're up to now.

Chadwick Boseman stars in the James Brown biopic 'Get on Up,' and now there's a trailer for the movie about the Godfather of Soul's rise to fame and fortune. Will this follow director Tate Taylor's 'The Help' in being both a late summer hit and an Oscar favorite? It's possible.

With the passing of Harold Ramis, it seemed another monkey wrench had been thrown into the plans of the long rumored ',' which co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd has been working on for over twenty years. Now it's been revealed that commerce trumps tragedy as Sony and director Ivan Reitman are definitely moving forward with the project.

'Ghostbusters 3' has seesawed between dead and "in progress" for quite some time, but one of the original film's stars, Dan Aykroyd, recently stated that filming will kick off next year... so that means it's still coming? Well, yes. Now it looks like we will be seeing a third installment coming in the near future, and Aykroyd took to Larry King to tell us more about what it'll be about.
