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

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.

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.

Superman doesn’t take too kindly to bad table manners

Henry Cavill does not seem to have the same interchangeable super senses as his on screen persona, as was riotously displayed earlier this year when Superman (quite literally and plot-tingly [in a figurative sense of course]) – came crashing into our screens – leaving no survivors in the collateral damage, due to the neck-braking pace that was a consistently overarching theme in Zack Snyders’ unabashedly colossal uber-smash-hit.
