Making Ghostbusters: Afterlife Was a Family Affair

It’s always disconcerting trying to accomplish something with someone looking over your shoulder while you do it. It’s even more awkward when it’s a parent, especially if you’re trying to do something that they’re old hands at. So pity poor Jason Reitman, who had to make the entirety of Ghostbusters: Afterlife with…Read more...

‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Behind-the-Scenes Video Passes the Proton Pack to a New Generation

Yesterday was Ghostbusters Day, and we were all expecting some hot Ghostbuster content to go along with that since Ghostbusters: Afterlife is headed to theaters this year. But, oddly enough, there really wasn’t much to talk about. Even odder still is the fact that today, not yesterday, we’ve got a brand new behind-the-scenes video about Ghostbusters: Afterlife. This would’ve been perfect for Ghostbusters Day, Sony Pictures! Just putting that out there! In any case, the featurette isn’t so much ...

‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Celebrates “Ghostbusters Day” With New Character Reveals and One Spooky (Probably Haunted) Farmhouse

The Ghostbusters franchise creates phantoms that come with more fun than fear, its charm embedded within quirky characters, zany ghosts, and plenty of comical one-liners. The original film was directed by Ivan Reitman and released nearly 40 years ago, but like ghosts, this series keeps coming back. Continuing to keep ghosts (and ghostbusters) in the family, director Jason Reitman is following in his own father’s footsteps with the newest film in the franchise, Ghostbusters: Afterlife. And since...

Ghostbusters: Not a Child’s Toy

Ghostbusters has been in my life for as long as I can remember. No, really. Some of my earliest childhood memories involve watching the flick with my dad (and missing 75 percent of the jokes), strapping on a backpack and teaming up with friends to take down spooks, specters and ghosts on the school playground, sitting with my nose pressed to the TV eagerly awaiting the next episode of The Real Ghostbusters, perhaps the greatest animated series of the 1980s, singing along to that awesome Ray Par...

It’s Ghostbusters Day, and Bill Murray Wants to Know What the Hell That Means

Happy Ghostbusters Day, everyone! I sure hope you remembered to tell all the ghosts in your life you love them. While Ghostbusters Day isn’t a new thing – it was actually launched back in 2016 – this year’s ghost-centric event is extra special because there’s a new Ghostbusters movie on the way. That would be Ghostbusters: Afterlife, a legacy sequel directed by Jason Reitman, son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman. And while Afterlife will primarily focus on new characters, the orig...

VOTD: Bill Murray Reacts to the Mini-Stay Puft Marshmallow Men in ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’

A few weeks ago, Ghostbusters: Afterlife was forced to reveal one of its secrets because of some impending merchandise being released by Hasbro. A clip from the movie showed Paul Rudd‘s character encountering some maniacal and mischievous mini-Stay Puft marshmallow men inside a Walmart after picking up a pint of Baskin-Robbins ice cream (how about that product placement, folks?). Now we get to see what one of the original Ghostbusters thinks of the scene with Bill Murray himself watching and re...

Those Mini-Pufts From ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Are Toys Now, Obviously

The minute everyone laid eyes on the Mini-Pufts from the recently released Ghostbusters: Afterlife clip I’m fairly confident we all knew they would inevitably be turned into toys. They’re tiny, cute, and part of a major franchise, so obviously the powers-that-be want to cash in on that, and who can blame them? People are clearly going to want to eat these things up (but not literally, please – they’re made of plastic). And this fall, anyone who wants one will be able to buy their own Mini-Puft....

Home Movie: The Princess Bride

In June and July of 2020, Jason Reitman directed an at-home reenactment of the entirety of The Princess Bride featuring too many notable actors to list here. It ran in 10 installments on doomed streaming platform Quibi — which is why you probably haven’t heard of it — but it is fantastic. Mixed media, multiple actors playing all the roles, Fred Savage and Cary Elwes reprising their roles from the original, the star power & talent, the fact that they got permission to do it — it’s just so wei...

The good news is it will be a reunion of many of the original Ghostbusters cast members…and there’s a chance one of the stars who was believed to be sitting this sequel out may actually make an appearance.

Watch This: Simon Hatt’s ‘Hammer Down’ is the Action-Packed Trucker-Western Father-Daughter Short Film You Need Right Now

I love short films. They are a storytelling form that allows for interesting twists and turns on the familiar, giving filmmakers a place to hone their craft. Short films are where I first discovered filmmakers like Jason Reitman before they started making features. As the owner of a film website, I get sent a lot of short films and I’ll be quite honest: most of them are bad. But today, I want to bring your attention to a great new short directed by (full disclosure) my friend Simon Hatt. You mi...
