Yes, yes, our old pal Stay Puft the giant marshmallow man is back in these new TV spots for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, but the real delight here is watching Melissa McCarthy fire her proton pack at the crotch of a huge, sinister version of the iconic logo. “How do you like that?!” she shouts, and I think the only response is, "Very much, please continue."

Following their delightful appearance with the original Ghostbusters cast on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the ladies of Paul Feig’s reboot — along with their dopey receptionist — have assembled in a brand new poster. And if that’s not enough for you, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy each have their very own featurette, offering a proper intro to their respective characters along with a little dose of new footage.

There has been a lot of skepticism about the new Ghostbusters. Would Paul Feig and his new cast pull it off? Would angry fanboys lose their minds before the movie came out? There was a lot of anxiety. But it’s hard to ignore an endorement like the one the new Ghostbusters got on Jimmy Kimmel Live! from the original Ghostbusters.

We don’t yet have a formal premiere date for Netflix’s officially-titled Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life revival, but that hasn’t stopped fan anticipation for catching up with their favorite Stars Hollow characters. And where Melissa McCarthy’s Sookie St. James seemed touch and go for awhile, a first photo of McCarthy back in costume has arrived.

Aside from having a great title, Can You Ever Forgive Me? has been attracting some truly great talent. Enough Said director Nicole Holofcener was originally attached to helm the true-life drama with Julianne Moore set to play the leading role, and while they both dropped out, they’ve been replaced by equally exciting names: Melissa McCarthy and The Diary of a Teenage Girl director Marielle Heller.

Don’t Worry, ‘Ghostbusters’ Star Melissa McCarthy Is Also Confused by That Trailer

Director Paul Feig has maintained that his new Ghostbusters movie isn’t a sequel or a remake, but a reboot. Basically, it ignores the fictional events and characters depicted in Ivan Reitman’s classic 1984 film — which makes the first trailer for Feig’s movie a bit confusing. If you count yourself among those who were baffled by the trailer, then you can rest easy with the knowledge that someone who is actually in the movie is also confused. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have any answers for you.

Oh, good. For those who are fans of Melissa McCarthy but remain unimpressed by her movie collaborations with husband and director Ben Falcone (me), you may want to turn away now because this news is not going to thrill you (me). Following the success of Tammy and The Boss, McCarthy and Falcone are teaming up for another comedy film, this one in the vein of Rodney Dangerfield’s classic Back to School.

Bloopers in the Credits: The Best Way to Tell if a Comedy Stinks

The Boss is not a good comedy. At times, it is impressively unfunny. In 99 patience testing minutes, I laughed out loud just once. (If you must know, it was when Melissa McCarthy described her vagina after a rejuvenation surgery as resembling a “soft silk purse.” That’s funny!) As the credits finally rolled on the press screening and I gathered my belongings, I thought to myself “That was exactly the sort of cruddy, heavily improvised, flop-sweat drenched unfunny comedy that typically ends with outtakes and bloopers.”

After months of uncertainty and an awkward public back-and-forth between Melissa McCarthy and Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, it’s finally, officially, 100 percent all happening. Yes, McCarthy is returning to reprise her role as Sookie St. James, the greatest (and clumsiest) chef in Stars Hollow, and the most reliable pal a cool single mom like Lorelai Gilmore could hope for.
