[MOVIES] Ghostbusters Reboot Will Go BIG With All Female Casts in 2016

ghostbusters going big in 2016

That’s right, there’s going to be a new Ghostbusters movie in 2016. The 1984 cult classic starring Dan Ackroyd, Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver still has a large following today – many celebrating its anniversary in the same way as classics like the Big Lebowski and Pulp Fiction.

While the news of the new Ghostbusters film dropped last year, with the Cinema Blend being one of the first news outlets to break the story, it’s only now that fans are beginning to get excited by the prospect of the new movie.

ghostbusters-2016Although, not everything is as we would expect with the new release. As Cinema Blend documented, the new movie will feature an all-female cast. However, while this presents a significant shift from the 1984 original, Ackroyd seems excited by the prospect of a new and vibrant cast including Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig. Ackroyd had the following to say:

“The Aykroyd family is delighted by this inheritance of the Ghostbusters torch by these most magnificent women in comedy. My great grandfather, Dr. Sam Aykroyd, the original Ghostbuster, was a man who empowered women in his day and this is a beautiful development in the legacy of our family business.”

The Sony Pictures production will be directed by the acclaimed Fletcher Moules, who was responsible for the extremely popular Clash of Clans advertisements, among other notable projects. Helping out Moules, will be the co-creator of Ghostbusters, Ivan Reitman according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will be released in July, and as Variety reported, the industry is expecting Ghostbusters to be one of the biggest grossing films of 2016 alongside many of the DC and Marvel releases due this year. With marketing efforts already in full flow, merchandise has started popping up everywhere. From original t-shirts, posters and video games, to leading brands such as Gala Bingo , who have started running Ghostbuster slot games to tap into the popularity of the brand in the lead-up to the release.

With a fledgling cast, and director at the helm of this reboot, the film also has its naysayers. What can we expect? It’s unclear until we finally get to see this unique take on the 1984 classic. In the meantime, watch the official trailer here:

Movie Trailer: This is The End

END-A-1SHT-jpg_201841

June 12th Sony Pictures releases This is The End! The world is coming to an end and here’s what our favorite comedians will do to survive. Starring Seth Rogen, James Franco, and many other talented actors. James Franco decides to throw a huge party to celebrate the end the year. Little does everyone know the world is ending! Each actor/actress is acting as themselves during the movie. I think this is a great twist to the story.

I read the article from June/July 2013 issue of Complex Magazine they had with both Seth and James on the main cover and interviewed. They are a hilarious duo. Besides working together on they’re popular film Pineapple Express, Freaks and Geeks, they are also friends as well. Great interview by Foster Kamer.

Don’t forget to take a look at THIS IS THE END in movie theaters on June 12th!
