The reaction to the new Ghostbusters reboot starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig has been…divisive to say the very least. At the very worst, it’s been downright hateful. Director Paul Feig has been as polite as possible to all the people who’ve come at him on Twitter, but even he reached his breaking point. After a series of particularly upsetting tweets, Feig had some harsh words for the haters: “Go f— yourself.”
If you’ve been anywhere near the internet when Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters movie is mentioned, then you’re well aware of the horrid response from a certain contingency of fan boys who already hate the movie based on the decision to cast four women in the lead roles. There have been the usual, lame cries of “You’re ruining my childhood!” and “Way to f— up the original!” Feig and the cast and crew of the film have mostly kept quiet…until now. And they’ve got the absolute best response to all those whiny haters.
So far, we know of two notable cameos in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters: Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray, two of the four original Ghostbusters stars — though they won’t be reprising their classic roles in the new film. The latest word from the set reveals another major cameo in the upcoming film: rock legend Ozzy Osbourne.
Boy, that Masterminds title feels so ironic now, huh?
Recently, Chris Pratt and Chris Evans visited children’s hospitals in costume as their superhero characters, followed by Johnny Depp dressing as Jack Sparrow and doing the same. And now the cast of Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters movie have been inspired to use their fame for good, visiting the kids at Tufts Medical Center in Boston.
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!
