The Famous Ghostbusters Moment That Was Not In The Original Script

The original "Ghostbusters" is arguably one of the most quotable movies of the 1980s – which is strange to think about, considering it's a movie about a bunch of slacker scientists who sort of stumble their way into discovering a way to capture ghosts in New York City. Among the film's many memorable lines is "don't cross the streams," a crucial piece of info that Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) gives to his ghostbusting pals and which comes back to save the day at the end of the film. (I am genuin...

‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Trailer Breakdown: Maybe It’s the Apocalypse

This morning, a new trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife finally arrived, a year and a half after the first one. Thankfully, it was worth the wait, with a tease that packs the kind of punch the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens did, with a little bit of Super 8 thrown in there for good measure. Since this trailer dives into the story, albeit vaguely, there are plenty of new details to uncover. So let’s dig in with a Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer breakdown. Our story takes place...

‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Gave Jason Reitman One of the Greatest Moments of His Life with Father Ivan Reitman

Ghostbusters: Afterlife was meant to be released last summer, but thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the movie was pushed back to March 2021, and delayed again to a summer release yet again in June. While we’re still waiting to see what the Ghostbusters sequel will bring to the table with a story set roughly 30 years after the events of the first two movies, director Jason Reitman may have already gotten all the praise he’ll need for the movie from his father, original franchise director Ivan ...

Cool Stuff: New ‘Ghostbusters’ Action Figure Two-Pack Ruins Louis Tully’s Tax Deductible Party

Hasbro is now in possession of the license for Ghostbusters toys, and they started things off with a bang this year by introducing the “Plasma Series” of figures inspired by the original 1984 movie. Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore were all included, along with a possessed Dana Barrett and the flat-topped Gozer the Gozerian. If you collected all of the figures, you could then build one of Gozer’s terror dogs. Now the other terror dog is coming along with the Keymas...

‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Story “Feeds Into the Possibility” of More Sequels, According to Dan Aykroyd

When the Ghostbusters cast and filmmakers reunited on Josh Gad’s web series Reunited Apart, there was a little confusion about something Ghostbusters: Afterlife director Jason Reitman said during their chat. Many thought the filmmaker was revealing another sequel was already in development, but it was just an out of context quote that got misconstrued. However, Ghostbusters is still a franchise, and obviously Sony Pictures would like to see Afterlife reinvigorate the brand. That’s why we’re not...

‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Appears to Give the Classic Ghost Trap a Little Modification

The coronavirus pandemic has pushed back the release of Ghostbusters: Afterlife from the previously set July release date this summer to a spring release in 2021. However, since there were already merchandise plans in place for the upcoming sequel to the original Ghostbusters franchise, an interesting little detail about one of the ghostbusting gadgets has come to light by way of a Hallmark Keepsake Christmas ornament originally intended to be released this year. The following ornament has be...

A Desperate Plea From A Desperate Writer

Whether this sounds snarky or not it needs to be said, and I guess I'm going to be the one to say it. PLEASE STOP TALKING SH*T TO WRITERS. This is a desperate plea from a writer trying her hardest to remain a pacifist, but some people make it hard. While I juggle edits and the general neurosis that goes with trying to tell stories people will read in a world where, to quote Dr. Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters, "Print is dead," you dum dums say things that make me understand why some of the best ...

A Complete Guide to ‘Ghostbusters’ Easter Eggs and References

Now that the dust has settled around the hotly debated Ghostbusters reboot from director Paul Feig, we wanted to take a look back at all the Easter eggs and references the new film made to the original 1984 classic from director Ivan Reitman. One of the biggest complaints was that the reboot aimed for too much fan service with an abundance of references to the original film, right down to cameos from almost every single key cast member. Once you check out our complete Ghostbusters Easter eggs g...

REVIEW: Hostess Limited Edition Key Lime Slime Twinkies

What’s your favorite scene from the original Ghostbusters? Was it the library ghost sequence to open the movie? What about Venkman getting slimed? Maybe you liked the big climax where our heroes saved New York City? There are plenty to choose from. My favorite scene was when Egon ate a Twinkie. Classic! Okay, that’s not entirely true, but if you were wondering how the famous snack cake ties in with the Ghostbusters, there’s your connection. Egon Spengler used a Twinkie as a metaphor for some sc...

Review: 'Ghostbusters' Passes the Proton Pack to the Next Generation

The original Ghostbusters from 1984 captured the imagination of a generation in a way few films do. As a kid, I was obsessed with the spooky-but-silly world director Ivan Reitman and writers Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis created. I watched The Real Ghostbusters cartoon religiously, had Ghostbusters-themed birthdays, and experienced a memorable Christmas in which Santa left Slimer, The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, the Fire House Headquarters, and Ecto-1 under the tree. I idolized Peter Venkman and...

‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Marketing Confusingly Hints at Original Franchise Connection

When the first trailer for the Ghostbusters reboot was released, the reference to the original storyline of four scientists friends saving New York City over 30 years ago confused some fans, leading them to believe that this new movie existed in the same universe. However,  everything that director Paul Feig and writer Katie Dippold have said indicates that this is a hard reboot where people don’t know ghosts exist and therefore there has been no need for the Ghostbusters. But is there a chance...

Ghostbusters 2016 Trailer Is Released

Yesterday the Internet lost its mind. At least, a tiny fraction of it lost its mind. Okay, the Internet lost its mind a long time ago so this is but a minuscule reflection of how much of its mind it has lost. The new Ghostbusters trailer is out.
