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.”
Spy is one of the funniest movies of the year, and even further proof of Paul Feig’s insane ability to make wonderful woman-centric comedies. The film is hitting DVD and Blu-ray soon, and two new featurettes have popped up online showing off two of the film’s key comedic ingredients: Rose Byrne and Jason Statham, the latter of whom took us by surprise and wound up being the funniest part of the whole movie.
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.
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.
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.
