There has been much dispute lately regarding the matter of who, in the event of a ghost-related emergency, ya gonna call.
Who ya gonna call? No, really, who are we supposed to call when the ghosts start terrorizing us? Director Paul Feig has officially revealed the names of the four leading characters in his new Ghostbusters movie, just in case you need to scribble them down in your day planner for future reference.
Paul Feig has wisely (and graciously) been keeping fans up to date with photos from his new Ghostbusters movie, including looks at the proton pack and the new costumes, while set photos have been leaking that show our new leads in action. But we haven’t seen all four of them together, in costume — until now.
Between set photos, casting announcements and Paul Feig’s tweets, Ghostbusters fans have had plenty of sneak peeks to keep us occupied until next summer. First we got a look at the new costumes, then Feig gave us a look at the new proton pack (followed by a more detailed photo to explain the pack’s functions), and now the director has revealed our first look at the new Ghostbusters car.
No one knew for certain if Wet Hot American Summer could pull off its prequel reunion series on Netflix, but by the full trailer, the First Day of Camp looks like everything we’ve dreamed. See the star-studded cast reunited (and joined by some other ridiculously famous folk) for our first official trailer, along with a slick new poster!
Ghostbusters is currently filming in Boston, but aside from the occasional paparazzi photo, we haven’t seen anything official from the upcoming reboot. That all changed today as director Paul Feig tweeted out a photo of the new costumes that will be worn by the leading ladies, and they look pretty great.
Back in March we saw the first teaser trailer for Masterminds, the new comedy from the director of Napoleon Dynamite, starring Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson. That sounds like quite the lineup of comedic talent in a film that may very well redeem director Jared Hess after his follow-up films underperformed and were poorly-received by critics and audiences. The new, full trailer is quite promising, and even more promising are the writing credits: Eastbound and Down collaborators Jody Hill and Danny McBride.
Let’s make this clear: A Deadly Adoption is not a spoof of a Lifetime movie, at least not in the way you’re thinking. It’s not obviously satirical, either, especially if you aren’t familiar with the Lifetime movie formula, like those of us blessed enough to grow up on a steady diet of Lifetime movies in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Instead, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig‘s new TV movie (kept secret for months, with Ferrell even outright denying its existence) is more of an homage, honoring the classic Lifetime movie tropes — it’s as if they’re filling out a MadLib.
Who ya gonna call? Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and (sadly not pictured in the set photos below) Leslie Jones. The ladies are the stars of Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters film, and the first photos have leaked from the set, showing off Wiig, McCarthy and a messy McKinnon in costume as their wacky onscreen characters.
Last week brought an appropriately silly-seeming first look at Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s surprise Lifetime movie A Deadly Adoption, though the full trailer paints a decidedly different picture. The spoof is subtler, but just what kind of movie will A Deadly Adoption turn out to be?
