To some, February 2nd is a time to trust the wisdom of a shadow-spotting rodent who makes vague predictions about the severity of winter. To others, it’s an annual excuse to watch Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day, again. But if you’re short on time this year, Neil Fennell has made a shorter half-hour version of the film…
First teased back in June of last year, we got our first official photos of some of the new Playmobil Ghostbusters sets a little later in the year in October. But as the toys move closer to finally being available come May of this year, Playmobil is revealing all of the details at the Nuremberg International Toy Fair…
We don’t usually get to cover Wes Anderson movies on io9—but we can now, officially, start writing about his next one. Anderson just announced that his next movie is a stop-motion animation about talking animals called Isle of Dogs. It’s currently filming and has an incredibly impressive voice cast.
According to IMDB, Tom Hanks has acted in 81 movies in a career that started way back in 1980. Bill Murray has 83 acting credits dating back to 1973. That’s over 35 years in “the industry” together, and yet they’ve never appeared on screen together in the same movie. Hmm. Seems suspicious, right? Could it be because…
Ever since Ghostbusters 2 premiered in 1989, there’s been talk of a third movie. For nearly 20 years, various scripts and ideas and rumors circulated until Paul Feig’s new reboot, opening July 15, finally put the possibility to rest. io9 spoke with original film’s director Ivan Reitman, as well as Feig, about what…
Get ready for the end of the world, folks.
The world wilted a little bit after learning that price-gouging pharmaceutical executive and human cesspool Martin Shkreli bought an impossibly rare Wu-Tang album for $2 million. But guess what. Wu-Tang reportedly wrote a brilliant clause into the sales contract that would enable them to get it back.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Bill Murray will make an appearance in the upcoming reboot of Ghostbusters. The actor portrayed Dr. Peter Venkman in the original 1984 film, and was spotted in Boston, Massachusetts earlier this week, where the film is currently in production.
San Diego Comic-Con started with a bang in Hall H Thursday as the man, the myth, the legend Bill Murray entered through the crowd, singing Smoke on the Water, and waxing poetic about life, responsibility and the expectations of this nerd-filled event.
Entertainment Weekly has released their reunion special with the Ghostbusters sitting front and center. Obviously this reunion is minus the great Harold Ramis, but it's still a wonderful collection of the remaining crew. And we still can't understand why this needs to be remade.
Asked about the Paul Feig-helmed, all-female reboot, Bill Murray gave his ideas for the new cast. Some stalwarts are included, but there are few new names, too. No matter what, it's kind of hard to dismiss anyone endorsed by Bill Murray himself.
Bill Murray showed up after a screening of Ghostbusters in Toronto yesterday, where he spent the better part of an hour answering questions from fans. His best answer was in response to a question about his penchant for weird, unannounced hangouts (crashing the above couple's engagement photoshoot, for instance).
Today in perfect casting decisions: Bill Murray has been selected to provide the voice of Baloo the bear in Disney's remake of The Jungle Book.
Back in the day, Tom Schiller wrote and directed weird and funny short films for Saturday Night Live, in the "Schiller's Reel" segments. Most of these are hard to see now — and so is Nothing Lasts Forever, the full-length science fiction movie Schiller directed in 1984. Except that the whole thing is on Youtube.
It doesn't have anything to do with Bill Murray, but I want to eat it anyway: The patty is "seared on the outside, medium rare on the inside, with a molten core of melted cheese and creamy sous vide egg yolk." I want to get sucked into a Groundhog Day time warp hole and eat this every day for the rest of eternity.
A clever imgur user posted a strip with all the costumes that Bill Murray has used in the Late Show with David Letterman from 2009 to 2014. Murray is always hilarious, but the fact that he has been doing this for five years now is amazing. It makes me sad to know that we won't see a new costume in 2015.
Fill up on all the Ghostbuster trivia that's not only clever, but pleasing to the eye. We're basically sluts for infographics here, and this one designed by Mike Seiders is pretty fantastic.
Martin Mull was a lot of things—a brilliant comedian, a folk singer, an egomaniac—but one thing he will always be remembered for is almost getting himself killed by Bill Murray.
The sad news that actor, screenwriter, and director Harold Ramis passed away earlier today has unsurprisingly resulted in a wave of cinematic nostalgia, with #ghostbusters trending globally on Twitter and seemingly everyone, at least in this office, talking about films such as Groundhog Day, Caddyshack, and National…
