Paul Feig On Ghostbusters 3: “I Want Ours To Be Scarier Than The Original”


ghostbusters-3-logo

The Ghostbusters reboot is currently underway now with director Paul Feig keeping the public informed of all the changes that have occurred as of late, creating a lot of controversy through the pre production progression. With original cast members split on the project (Bill Murray being all for it, and Ernie Hudson being against the sassy girl-power remake), the line of demarcation couldn’t be any more noticeable. Now the news is just in that Feig wants the reboot/reimaging/sequel (enter as you see fit…) to come with real scares as well as imbuing it with the fat-girl humour – all this whilst retaining the coveted PG13 rating. Feig talks of his plans in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, and it might have fans of the original, either; banging their heads against the proverbial brick wall, or to take to their keyboards to hurl all kinds of profanity-ridden-abuse towards the Bridesmaids filmmaker.

BeetleJuice

With Tim Burton’s latest movie Big Eyes hitting the big screen this week, he has been doing the obligatory promotional rounds to plug the Christoph Waltz starring vehicle. Thusly, due to Burton’s recent confirmation that he will be helming the sequel to Beetlejuice with his old buddy Michael Keaton – who will be reprising the role of the eponymous exorcist – Burton has been finding himself inundated with questions regarding the long-awaited sequel to the hit 1988 comedy/horror.

Epic-Rap-Battle

That’s a couple of years now that the Epic Rap Battles of History video series has been running for now.

The latest video sees them pit Steven Spielberg against Alfred Hitchcock in a no-holds-barred showdown. Check the epic rap battle below: Continue reading

Frozen Director Apologizes To Parents Who Are Sick Of Hearing “Let It Go”

Frozen

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a year now since the release of Frozen; for some it will be a distant memory, as all the “Let It Go” cover version cash-ins have stopped deluging the metaphorical pipes of YouTube. However, those with young children haven’t had it as easy. Idina Menzel‘s original version of “Let It Go,” has probably been on constant rotation non-stop since the release of the movie; so, spare them a thought – as it seems that the director Jennifer Lee has done so too.

Michael Keaton Floors Every Other Batman With Two Words

BatmanMC

Recently, when Christian Bale was asked how he initially felt when he heard about Ben Affleck taking over the role of Batman, he admitted that he harbored some series FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). That’s understandable, as Bale turned in a terrific performance in Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight trilogy (despite the mixed reaction about the gravely voice), and being a method actor, he must have invested a lot of emotionally charged energy into the role of Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego, Batman.

‘Star Trek 3’: Could Roberto Orci Be Replaced By Edgar Wright?

Edgar Wright

Trekkies might have been annoyed about the the prospects of a Star Trek reboot directed by J.J. Abrams back in 2009, but the irony is not lost on them (well, at least I hope it’s not…), as the popularity of the franchise was waning with smaller box office returns after each consequent release of the Star Trek: The Next Generation movies; with the nail hitting the head with the disappointing performance of Star Trek Nemesis. To make matters worse, there was also the cancelation of ‘Enterprise‘ after 3 seasons. So – although the reboot was catered to a wider audience – it was the only way to save the franchise and rejuvenate some, much needed vigour. Subsequently, it turned out to be a good movie; and was a hit with critics and fans alike, therefore it doing its job in successfully piquing a rather blasé audiences’ interest in a dying franchise.

Street Fighter V

Well folks, it appears Capcom have suffered a double whammy of school boy errors today, what, with the leak of their Street Fighter V trailer, and the major blow (or a baku hadoken in this case) that the game is going to be an exclusive to the PS4 and PC. Continue reading
