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.

‘The Boss’ Review: A Shockingly Unfunny Melissa McCarthy Movie

There’s a scene in The Boss where Melissa McCarthy’s character, a disgraced business mogul named Michelle Darnell, tries to rebuild her financial empire by going to a country club to woo potential investors. Her pitch goes badly, from both a practical perspective and a comedic one. Not realizing one of the investors’ wives is dead, she mocks her and calls her terrible names, and basically makes a fool out of herself. None of this is funny. The conversation goes on and on, fumbling for some kind of ending, until Michelle excuses herself and then suddenly and randomly falls down a flight of stairs. End of scene.

You just can't have Ghostbusters without proton packs. The first trailer for Paul Feig's Ghostbusters did feature a brief shot of the eponymous heroes using their packs, but if you want a better look (and you totally do), this new photo from the upcoming film shows the full potential of that handy ghost-bustin' tool. It's so bright you might need shades just to look at the photo.

Even before Netflix officially announced a four-part Gilmore Girls revival coming to the streaming service, it hadn’t seemed particularly likely Melissa McCarthy might find time to reprise her role as Sookie St. James. McCarthy even downplayed that she’d been asked at first, but now officially confirms that she won’t have time for a role.

Less than a week after the first full Ghostbusters trailer, there’s now a second trailer. An international trailer! All the characters speak exotic languages! (Okay, not really, they all speak English.) But, hey there’s a lot more Chris Hemsworth in this trailer! He’s from Australia! That’s international! (Or Asgard, which would technically make this the intergalactic trailer.)

The trailer for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters finally arrived a couple of days ago, offering our first look at the new team in action and instantly establishing Kate McKinnon as the film’s MVP. Most people seem pretty divided on the trailer, with some criticizing the lengthy first look for lacking a bit of punch. Fan edits are rarely better than the stuff they’re manipulating, but this new cut of the Ghostbusters trailer feels a little more effective than Sony’s official version.

Ever since the Ghostbusters reboot has been announced (with an all-female cast) the film has been harshly judged, sight unseen. Today, director Paul Feig has officially revealed the Ghostbusters trailer, so...

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters hits theaters in just five months, and while we’ve seen plenty of photos and toys based on the upcoming film, we’ve yet to see any actual footage. That sort of changes today, as Sony has released an announcement trailer featuring the first glimpse of footage (it’s quite foreboding) along with the promise of a real, honest-to-goodness trailer…in March.

Melissa McCarthy returned to Studio 8H for her fourth outing as SNL host, and while it may have made more sense for her to host closer to the April release date of her new comedy The Boss, it's difficult to complain. McCarthy teams up with her Ghostbusters co-stars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones for a mostly great episode that really leans into the weird stuff and makes excellent use of musical guest Kanye West in an early contender for best sketch of the year. Read on for our ranking of this week's sketches from best to worst.

‘The Boss’ Red Band Trailer: Melissa McCarthy’s Diss Game Is Strong

If you weren’t quite sure what to make of The Boss after that green band trailer debuted, then maybe this new red band trailer will give you a better of idea of what Melissa McCarthy & Co. are up to in her latest comedy. Like the underwhelming Tammy before it, The Boss was also written by McCarthy and her husband, Ben Falcone, and while that has us feeling a bit skeptical, there’s something that feels more lively about this film — or maybe it’s just all that profanity.
