Let’s go back. Back in time before Paul Feig swooped in to direct an all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot which we’re actually excited about. Back in time to when the long-gestating ‘Ghostbusters 3’ was still a possibility, a sequel that most people didn’t really want. Back here in the land that time forgot, original ‘Ghostbusters’ director and producer Ivan Reitman was planning to helm the long-delayed third installment in the franchise, and according to some recently uncovered e-mails from Sony, we now know what that sequel would have been called—and who might have starred in it.

For the majority of his appearance on Zach Galifianakis' painful, funny, and painfully funny 'Between Two Ferns,' Brad Pitt seems to be losing out to his host in a big way. At one point, he appears to be trying to hide behind an actual fern. Later, Louis C.K. comes out and stares dismissively at the superstar. Galifianakis calls Pitt's latest film 'Furry.' It's pretty standard 'Ferns' stuff, and Pitt takes it like a champ.

Fox Searchlight released the first 'Birdman' trailer, featuring Michael Keaton as a washed-up actor known mainly for portraying a superhero, and it is one helluva of a preview.

If you watch the 'Are You Here' trailer expecting something similar to writer/director Matthew Weiner's 'Mad Men,' you're in for a bit of a surprise. Starring Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler, the film looks smaller, sillier and more straightforward than a typical episode of that acclaimed AMC series.
