I feel like a bad reporter for admitting this, but when I heard Alexander Payne—the director of movies like Election, About Schmidt, Sideways, Nebraska and The Descendants—was making a new film, I just assumed Gizmodo/io9 wouldn’t cover it. I didn’t even look into it. I knew I’d see it, probably love it, and it would…
Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters is a film for anyone who ever watched the first Ghostbusters and thought, “I wish they got to use their guns more.” It’s bigger, brighter, and louder—the sort of movie that features the Ghostbusters shooting ghosts in slow motion set to the iconic theme song. It’s also incredibly funny. The…
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…
Each of the new Ghostbusters has received their own introductory video, meaning we’ve received a ton of new film footage, along with details about the characters and the plot.
After decades of waiting for a new Ghostbusters movie, here’s your first footage from one. To celebrate the launch of this awesome trailer, we talked with director Paul Feig, producer Ivan Reitman and writer Katie Dippold, and they told us why this trailer reintroduces so many of the things we love.
This is so weird and hilarious: as part of W Magazine’s “Casting Call” video series, Kristen Wiig, Jane Fonda, Mya Taylor, Carey Mulligan, and Greta Gerwig read one of Hannibal Lecter’s pointed monologues from The Silence of the Lambs. Fonda is a boss no matter what, but Wiig kind of steals the show, as you can see.
That’s right, it’s a teaser trailer for a trailer. Our very first look at Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters doesn’t show off much: just shots of New York City, frantic police officers and the Army, as well as a tease of the original’s theme song.
The new Ghostbusters movie is still half a year away, but at least now we’re starting to get teased with some pretty sweet images. Yesterday, we saw our first official cast picture. Now feast your eyes on four posters, one for each of our new heroes.
Director Paul Feig just revealed the costumes for his Ghostbusters film, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. They’re definitely similar to the ones from the 1984 original film, but have a more realistic, fire fighter vibe to them. But that’s not the only Ghostbusters news today.
When most Saturday Night Live cast members are asked where they got their career started, we tend to hear the same answers: Chicago's Second City, L.A.'s Groundlings, and the UCB Theater right here in New York. Kristen Wiig, however, has a much more interesting story to tell.
On the surface, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's Paul looks like a drugs-and-sex-addled reimagining of E.T.. But Paul, opening today, is actually also about how America is an alien planet.
We're dying for more information about Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's alien-encounter comedy Paul, especially now that it's been delayed. Luckily, we cornered co-star Kristen Wiig, and mind-probed her to learn more about the film's science-fictional in-jokes.
