While last summer’s Ghostbusters didn’t get off to a very auspicious start, due to “My childhood!”-wailing Internet trolls and bad box office numbers coupled with the fact that the movie has its hilarious moments but was just fine overall, that doesn’t mean we’ll never see Gilbert, Patty, Yates, and Holtzmann onscreen again. In fact, the studio has a number of films in development, according to Ghostbusters’ producer Ivan Reitman (who also produced the 1984 version).

IMDb’s Top 10 Movies of 2016 List Is... Interesting, Let’s Just Put It That Way

The Internet Movie Database is a fount of helpful information. With a few simple clicks, users can learn who shot the Miley Cyrus vehicle So Undercover (Things to Come cinematographer Denis Lenoir), which sequel in the Hellraiser franchise featured a performance from a young Adam Scott (the fourth one), or how old Taraji P. Henson is (who looks that good at 46?!). As a repository for loose factoids from in and around the world of screen entertainment, it can’t be beat. As a source for critical perspectives on those same films, however... hoo boy. Just take a gander at any comment section for a movie’s page and marvel at the IMDb is the site where rabid anti-Ghostbusters zealots congregated to downvote Paul Feig’s movie into oblivion weeks before its actual release, and the newly-released IMDb Top 10 provides an even clearer view of its user base.

New ‘Ghostbusters’ Crossover Comic Gives Us the Meet-Up We Didn’t Know We Always Wanted

by Emma Stefansky December 21, 2016 @ 5:27 PM
Because this summer’s Ghostbusters established an alternate universe in which the original bustin’ team never existed (kind of like how The Walking Dead exists in a universe with no zombie literature), it’s pretty much impossible for Holtzmann, Erin Gilbert, and the rest of the team to meet Peter Venkman’s original crew. In real life, that is. But in comics, anything is possible, and a new crossover announced for 2017 from publisher IDW will see both teams meeting up for the first time, which sounds like tons of fun for anyone who isn’t a supernatural spirit.

There Will Be ‘Many’ More ‘Ghostbusters’ Movies, According to Ivan Reitman

by Britt Hayes November 28, 2016 @ 11:51 AM
Ivan Reitman ain’t afraid of no underwhelming box office numbers. The original Ghostbusters director and producer of this year’s reboot says that despite weak returns for Paul Feig’s film, “there’s going to be many other” movies in the franchise. That statement contradicts a previous report, which indicated that Sony is focusing their energy on the animated Ghostbusters film and a new TV series, while the possibility of a sequel to Feig’s reboot had become very unlikely.

‘Ghostbusters’ Blu-ray Features Extended Cut and Tons of Deleted and Alternate Scenes

by Britt Hayes August 31, 2016 @ 5:12 PM
With Paul Feig at the helm and a quartet of hilarious women who are great at improvising, it’s not surprising that the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of the Ghostbusters reboot is packed with additional scenes, outtakes, deleted scenes, gag reels and — as many fans hoped — an extended cut of the film. We won’t have a chance to see any of these bonus materials until October, but it should be interesting for those who felt as though Feig’s theatrical version may have been a little too safe.

Ghostbusting Gets Colorful in the ‘Ghostbusters’ VFX Reel

We’ve all complained about Hollywood’s increasingly monochromatic color scale from time to time. It seems that no blockbuster franchise is immune to a post-production color correction that turns everything into the shame shades of dull and dingy. So while reactions to the new Ghostbusters movie were more than a little split  —  that seems like the charitable way to put it  —  I hope that most people could agree that the bright splashes of color in the new movie were a breath of fresh air for studio films. Fluorescent purples, yellow, and greens are a nice change of pace from browns, blacks, and… wait, did I mention browns already?

‘Ghostbusters’ Sequel Probably Not Happening as Sony Sets Sights on Animated Projects

by Britt Hayes August 10, 2016 @ 11:58 AM
Just last month, Sony exec Rory Bruer said he had “no doubt” that the studio would move forward with a sequel to Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot. That was then, this is now: The all-female reimagining of the 1984 classic has made $180 million at the global box office, which isn’t enough to justify Sony’s production and marketing costs…or a sequel, for that matter.
