“Ghostbusters: Afterlife” trailer #2 gets dropped this week and so far, film looks very promising!

The original plan for Ghostbusters 3 was that Dan Aykroyd wanted to reunite the 4 Ghostbusters characters: Ray Stantz, Dr. Venkman, Egon and Winston but the only problem with that now is that obviously Harold Ramis passed away.

Dan’s been saying ever since they’ve been talking about it that this is gonna be a passing of the torch kind of story. They wanted young kids and a girl to be the new Ghostbusters with the originals teaching them. As you can see they’re committed to keeping that story here despite Harold Ramis passing away.

In this trailer, they’re letting you know that they haven’t forgotten about Harold ’cause they gave him a nice tribute by showing him with the original Ghostbusters in a photo and playing the old Ghostbusters commercials they did.

They are definitely bringing back everybody from the first two films with the exception of Rick Moranis who turned it down which is a bummer. I was hoping he would come back as Louis Tully ’cause it would have been awesome, he was a funny character.

Other than that, this film looks very good. I’m probably gonna see it for sure.

The way the plot is looking for “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” is that there are these kids that are looking for the original Ghostbusters and they want to learn how to catch ghosts since they’ve been finding their old equipment and finding Ecto 1 on their own. The town has been taken by ghosts again and the kids want to fight them but they don’t really know how so they want to try and find Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman and Winston Zeddemore. Hoping they could teach them. They find out that Egno Spengler died to explain Harold’s real-life passing but the surviving Ghostbusters, the ones that are left are still around… but they want nothing to do with ghost catching anymore. Ray, Peter and Winston moved on.

I remember a point where Dan Aykroyd said originally the 4 ghostbusters moved on to have all kinds of problems in life and from the looks of the trailer, looks like he’s staying true to that idea. When Ray Stantz picked up the phone toward the end of the trailer and says, “We’re closed”, he sounds like an angry old man which is how he’ll appear to be in the movie. He’ll no longer be this fast talking funny man like he was in the first two films. Peter and Winston will be different too, I bet.

Annie Potts aka Janine the crazy secretary lady makes an appearance in the trailer as you can see.

The question is, will Ray, Peter and Winston suit up and start fighting ghosts again in the film? My guess is that it’s an absolute yes. They’ll be teaching the kids how to catch ghosts so they have to. Ray, Peter and Winston will refuse at first ’cause they want nothing to do with that life anymore but the kids will keep begging and begging so at some point in the movie, they ended up helping them. When Ray, Peter and Winston notice the kids are in danger that’s when they’ll suit up and put the proton packs back on. If Peter and Winston won’t be in ghost busting catching action again, then Ray Stantz will be the most likely. They need to do something to keep the fans entertained ’cause they’ll be expecting the original Ghostbusters to get back into action.

I’m sure Harold will get a nice big tribute in there somewhere… will Egon appear as a ghost? Possibly, we’ll have to wait and see what they’ll do. I’m sure they’ll do something with Egon in the film.

I love the Ghostbusters. Always been a huge fan but I refuse to watch that all-girl reboot directed by Paul Feig and I will never watch that one at all but “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” yes, definitely. I’ll be there in the theater for that one.

Original “Ghostbusters” cast returning to reprise their roles in Ghostbusters III but will Annie Potts and Rick Moranis return as well, hopefully?

Yes, pretty much the whole gang of the Ghostbusters cast are coming back for Jason Reitman’s “Ghostbusters III”. Yes, Sigourney Weaver is coming back as Dana Barrett, Bill Murray coming back as Dr. Peter Venkman, Dan Aykroyd coming back as Dr. Ray Stantz and Ernie Hudson coming back as Winston Zeddemore.

Only Ghostbuster that can’t return is obviously Harold Ramis who was Dr. Egon Spengler and Harold passed away in 2014. I’m glad “GIII” is finally moving forward but it still won’t be the same without Egon, though.

Now I’m wondering if Annie Potts will return as the Ghostbusters secretary Janine and wonder if Rick Moranis would come out of acting retirement to reprise his role as Louis Tully. I can see Annie coming back maybe but Rick? We’ll have to wait and see on that one. It would be awesome if Louis Tully did come back ’cause that character was what helped make the first two Ghostbusters movie entertaining.

I didn’t see the all-female reboot directed by Paul Feig and I don’t plan on seeing that film at all. I haven’t even touched it and still haven’t seen it. Don’t want to.

Now that we have a more appropriate Ghostbusters movie in the works, I’ll probably see “Ghostbusters III” if the trailers look good enough.

I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan. Have been all my life. The first one and the original was one of my all-time favorite movies. The second one was pretty good but the writing could have been better.

I wonder what the plot for “Ghostbusters III” is gonna be about? It’s probably gonna be the same plot Dan Aykroyd has been talking about for years… a passing of the torch kind of story. It’s probably gonna be about Ray, Peter and Winston teaching up and coming recruits on how to be a Ghostbuster. I’m sure we’ll see Slimer back and I’m sure we’ll see Staypuff back, but I’m sure the film will have new ghosts and new villains.

I’m hoping Jason don’t disappoint with this film. I’m sure he’s getting a lot of help and advice from his father, Ivan Reitman.

Some of you may say that Ghostbusters shouldn’t continue without Harold but this is a new movie franchise and series. It’s probably gonna continue on and on kind of like James Bond, Star Wars and Star Trek. Ghostbusters is definitely a franchise along those lines.

Even though Sony is continuing on without Harold, I’m sure the film will give Harold a tribute in some way. I bet Egon’s ghost will make a cameo appearance if anything. That will probably happen.

Now filming of the all-female “Ghostbusters” has officially wrapped, you can expect them to put together a trailer soon. They may have finished all the scenes in the movie but they still have plenty of production work to do. They still need to add in all the CGI special effects as I’m sure there will be plenty of that, they need to add in all the ghosts and they need to record the musical score for the film.

As you see in the photo above that is Ernie Hudson aka Winston Zeddemore which he looks to be filming a scene with Leslie Jones. It looks like the three surviving original Ghostbusters will be in the film after all: Bill, Dan and Ernie… however, though, will Harold Ramis still be in the movie in some form? Will Egon make a cameo as a ghost? EIther way, I think Egon will get brought up in the film somehow ’cause they’re gonna wanna pay a tribute to Harold. I think it’ll be pretty cool if Egon would appear as a ghost.

I predict when the trailer comes out, I think more people will like it. I’m looking forward to seeing the trailer. Bring it on!

Look like Bill Murray finally says yes to having a cameo in new “Ghostbusters” after all!!!

Not only that Dan Aykroyd will have a cameo in the new “Ghostbusters”, look like Bill Murray finally agreed to have a cameo in the new film as well.

Here are some photos of Bill arriving in Boston to film a little something for the film.

I wonder if Winston Zeddemore will have a cameo as well? Will Ernie Hudson appear?

I would think the surviving original Ghostbusters would be needed so they can train the new recruits… would make a whole lot of sense.

Dan Aykroyd to appear in new “Ghostbusters” for a small role, no surprise there…

Dan accidentally tweeted that he’s filming a scene in the new “Ghostbusters” film but he deleted the tweet a little later on. Was he not supposed to release that info? Anyway, it’s no surprise that he’s gonna be in it ’cause we all predicted it. Is Dan gonna reprise his role as Ray Stantz? I would think so. Ray needs to be around so he can teach the new recruits some new things like how to use the proton packs and all.

Will Bill and Ernie have cameos as well? We’ll have to wait and see. Bill may not be involved but there’s still a possibility… maybe Paul will fit him in the movie somehow. Bill and Paul only met once so they haven’t worked anything out yet but there’s still a chance that Paul could have a cameo for Bill. We’ll have to wait and see.

What’s Bill Murray doing at SDCC???

It’s that time again. San Diego Comic Con has just begun! Well, Bill Murray the famous actor/comedian just made his SDCC debut to promote his film “Rock the Kasbah”… but what is he really doing in SDCC when the “Ghostbusters” panel is tomorrow? Will Bill make an appearance for the “Ghostbusters” panel tomorrow?

The Ghostbusters panel is tomorrow at 2 p.m.:

http://www.cryptozoic.com/san-diego-comic-con-2015

For the Ghostbusters panel, I’m sure the four ladies will be in the panel but I wonder if the original three will make appearances to help celebrate the new film with the fans? Will Dan, Ernie and Bill make an appearance to surprise the fans? Who knows. We’ll have to wait and see. I’m sure the “Ghostbusters” panel will show some footage or even release the teaser.

There’s gotta be a reason that Bill Murray is there at SDCC… maybe to make the big announcement that he’s gonna be in the new “Ghostbusters” movie. We’ll have to wait and see.

“Ghostbusters” reunion photo 30 years later… minus Harold Ramis…

If Harold Ramis was still alive, I’m sure he would have been in this photo instead of Sigourney Weaver. That’s probably why they put Sigourney in there since Harold is no longer with us.

Anyway… Bill, Ernie and Dan still look great as Ghostbusters. Why does the new Ghostbusters film have to be an all female re-boot when it should be these guys in the leading role? Maybe they’ll still be in it. Who knows. We’ll have to wait and see.

It really is too bad Harold is gone, though. Wish he could have lived longer so he could do this movie with them.

Sony still wants Bill Murray for “Ghostbusters” all-female reboot film…

Sony won’t leave Bill Murray alone on being in the new “Ghostbusters” re-boot film. If you think about it, when Bill responded to the idea that he liked the all-female Ghosbusters… he never really said, “No, he’s not gonna be in it”. He just gave the new plot idea positive feedback. Since the new “Ghostbusters” film will be all female, it’ll be impossible for Bill to have a leading role in the film.

Sony kept bugging Bill to be in the new “Ghostbusters” film and they still are bugging him about it. Bill kept turning it down ’cause he didn’t want to be in another big studio franchise; however, he did say that he is open for a cameo appearance if the script was right. So that means that Bill is not ruling out an appearance in the film. He’s saying never say never.

http://comicbook.com/2014/10/15/sony-wants-bill-murray-in-ghostbusters-reboot-/

I don’t care how long of an appearance Bill Murray gets for the film, I just want him to be involved somehow since it won’t be a “Ghostbusters” movie without him. A cameo for Bill would be fine. I’m all for that!

Ernie Hudson slams “Ghostbusters” re-boot… he says making it all female is not “Ghostbusters”…

Welp… look like we aren’t gonna see Winston Zeddemore in the new “Ghostbusters” ’cause the actor who plays the character doesn’t agree with the all-female Ghostbusters idea. Click the article above and read what have to say. He makes a lot of sense, I guess.

In my opinion, it isn’t Ghostbusters without the 4 original characters: Ray, Peter, Egon and Winston. Ray is probably gonna be in the new film in some form but if the other guys aren’t, then why call it Ghostbusters, ya know?

I can’t see Ghostbusters being good without Ivan Reitman helming it. I don’t think Paul has what it takes to put horror and comedy together.

I was on board of a new film until Harold died. After Harold died, I thought to myself, “A Ghostbusters film cannot be good without Harold being involved so they might as well trash the project”… of course, they didn’t. I’m predicting a box office bomber with this film… nobody’s gonna see this.

Bill Murray said an all-female Ghostbuster film is a good idea but Ernie decided to have some balls and have a different opinion on it. Kudos to Ernie for keeping it real!!! \m/

I’ll have to admit that I’m losing interest in “Ghostbusters III”…

Today it was announced that director Paul Feig is confirmed to helm the new “Ghostbusters” film along w/ Katie Dippold to help him write the script. Like the title of this post says, I’m losing interest in the new Ghostbusters film. I think I started to lose interest in it when Harold Ramis died and Ivan Reitman stepped down. Then Bill Murray finally said no.

Then there’s gonna be the possibility that Melissa McCarthy is gonna be the big star of the film and it’s probably gonna happen. Don’t be surprised. I don’t wanna see a huge woman running around in a Ghostbusters suit running out of breath with a heavy proton pack. I saw one movie with Melissa McCarthy and that was “Identity Thief” and it wasn’t that great. Melissa is not that good of a comedian. It’s not because of her weight at all. It’s just that she’s a bad actress, annoying and not funny.

Since the original Ghostbusters crew: Ramis, Murray and Reitman aren’t gonna be involved then I’m not gonna be interested. This is the reason I think this film is gonna bomb horribly. This is also why I think they’re gonna get Melissa McCarthy for the role hoping to get more people to see it and they know this film is gonna bomb without her. It’s obvious they’re gonna get Melissa for this and don’t be surprised that when they start casting, she’ll be the first one to get announced. I’m betting my money on it.

You figure that Sony would scrap this project after the passing of Harold but nope. Sure enough, they had to continue on. This film is Dan Aykroyd’s baby, he’s the one who got it going so he’s definitely committed to it no matter if the original team is gonna be involved and he doesn’t care about the public’s criticism toward the film… he’s moving forward with it whether people likes it or not.

Most Ghostbusters fans are pretty skeptical with the next film and I hear them. I’ll admit it that I don’t want the film to happen now that Ramis, Murray and Reitman aren’t involved. I’m not interested in a complete re-boot, I was hoping for a continuation with the 4 original Ghostbusters like most fans.

This film is gonna flop hard. I don’t know why Dan is desperate to get this made. Probably needs the money and desperate to get back in the Hollywood spotlight.
