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...

James Gunn’s Original ‘The Suicide Squad’ Pitch Had a Slightly Darker Ending

The idea of creative freedom has hung over the head of Warner Bros. ever since Zack Snyder’s roller coaster of an experience when dealing with the studio pushing back on his grand, operatic, but not exactly crowd-pleasing Justice League.
