The new female “Ghostbusters” spotted in uniform on set…

I think they look kind of cute actually. Notice the hair on Kate McKinnon who is the blonde. Is she the female version of Egon? That means that Leslie Jones is the female version of Winston. Melissa the female version of Ray. Kristen the female version of Peter? That’s what it’s kind of looking like to me. I’m sure we’ll see a pic of them with proton packs strapped on pretty soon.

Even though people are still trashing this movie, there are more people starting to like it with all of these new pics so now with the “mixed” responses… that’s actually a good thing. I predict a lot more people will like it once the trailer comes out.

Today is the Ghostbusters panel at SDCC so I hope we hear more big news from it. I still hope the original Ghostbusters will still be involved in the film, though. Hopefully… Dan, Bill and Ernie will have cameos.

Could Peter Venkman get slimed by Slimer again? That would be kind of funny… Peter and Slimer reunite.


Paul Feig shows off the new Ecto-1 car for all-female “Ghostbusters”…

Here’s what Melissa, Kate, Kristen and Leslie will be riding in. The new Ecto-1. Look like they’re keeping the Ecto-1 name after all.

Anyway, Paul Feig knows about all the negative criticism toward his “Ghostbusters” movie. He’s taking it all like a man and he likes hearing it all. Paul finally responds to the negative criticism toward this movie and he doesn’t seem to mind…


Paul Feig reveals new “Ghostbusters” uniforms that the women will be wearing…

So this is the new uniform that Melissa, Kristen, Kate and Leslie will be wearing for the upcoming “Ghostbusters” film. They definitely look different than the original uniforms. Some people would wonder why Melissa’s uniform is so small due to her weight but seeing Melissa on the set of “Ghostbusters” looks like she lost some weight for the role so I’m sure she’ll fit in it just fine.

Here’s Melissa on set:

She definitely lost some weight so she must be working out and eating right. Getting prepared for the role.

I’m sure they’ll show us what the women will look like wearing the uniforms soon and hope they’ll show us the new proton packs.

All the movie fans maybe giving this movie negative criticism this soon but never know, maybe the movie will turn out enjoyable after all. I’m pretty sure we’ll get a teaser soon. The teaser will probably get shown at San Diego Comic Con, I would think.


A few set photos of all-female “Ghostbusters” released…

What is that new Ghostbusters gadget that Melissa McCarthy is holding? Looks like a new ghost trap to me.

It’s already looking kind of interesting, actually. Despite the negative feedback it’s mostly getting. I’m willing to give it a chance. When we get our first teaser trailer of this movie, I’ll make a decision on whether or not I should see it in theater. I’m sure we’ll get our first trailer pretty soon. They’re probably getting prepared for San Diego Comic Con this year so they can reveal some footage and clips there so that’s probably why they scheduled filming early.


Dan Aykroyd continues to ignore critics of all-female “Ghostbusters” and keeps praising the hell out of it…

I’m sure Dan Aykroyd knows that nobody wants to see the all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot. It’s pretty clear that he doesn’t care. He seems pretty committed to this movie and still moving forward with it.

Here’s his latest response…

“Yeah, it’s going to be hot! The new one’s going to be big! The interplay, and with each of them, their individual voices are so well defined. They’re just such different characters, and there’s a friction. There’s a dynamic there. I’m not going to spoil it for people, but it’s going to be big, big!” – Dan Aykroyd


Maybe Dan is just trying to tell us, “Settle down people, you won’t be disappointed at all!!!”

He could be right, though. Maybe the all-female “Ghostbusters” will turn out very enjoyable after all. We’ll have to see the movie for ourselves and not badly judge this early. I’ll give it a chance, I guess.


Do you think Sony would be successful in expanding the “Ghostbusters” universe???

This article at Deadline is an interesting read…


Ivan Reitman and Sony wants to expand the Ghostbusters universe. They don’t want to leave the first two films as is at all. They want to turn Ghostbusters into a big franchise. More films, TV shows, cartoon series, video games, merchandise, etc. In other words this is what Disney is doing with “Star Wars”. This is what New Line Cinema has done with the “Lord of the Rings” franchise.

First we get the Paul Feig all-female “Ghostbusters” with Melissa McCarthy and all them — that film is still happening. Now there’s gonna be an all-male version with the Russo brothers helming and Channing Tatum may star along with a rumored Chris Pratt.

What do you think? Do you think “Ghostbusters” would be successful without the original cast?

To be honest, as much as I don’t like them continuing on without the original cast… yes, I think “Ghostbusters” will be VERY successful even without the original cast. I mean… “Ghostbusters” was already a big franchise around the time the first two films came out. They even had a few cartoon series.

Keep in mind, we have a new generation of movie goers and I’m sure this new generation have never even seen the two originals. Once people go see these new films, it could draw more people to the originals and I think that’s the goal. When Paul Feig’s all-female “Ghostbusters” film come out, you know all of us are gonna flock to see it anyways, out of curiosity. I’m predicting that once the teaser trailer for Feig’s “Ghostbusters” comes out, everybody is gonna be all over it.

Thinking about it a while, movie franchises moving on without the original cast and crew is nothing new. That’s what the Terminator did. “Robocop” continued on and continued to be successful even without Peter Weller.

Like they all say, the shows gotta go on. That’s how the movie business works.

Will I go see the all-female “Ghostbusters”? I’m gonna wait to see the upcoming trailers first and then I’ll make a decision. You really shouldn’t judge early.


Dan Aykroyd finally speaks on new all-female “Ghostbusters”… he praises the casting but ignores the fans requests to “leave it” alone…

Dan Aykroyd finally releases statement now that the casting have been revealed and he says the casting is “magnificent”. It’s pretty clear that Dan and Sony studios are not listening to the fans commentary. They are pretty desperate in getting this film made for sure. There are too many fans begging them to leave this film alone but it’s obvious the crew behind the new “Ghostbusters” don’t care what the fans think. It’s pretty amazing isn’t it?


Last time I checked, Dan have been talking about for years that he originally wanted the original Ghostbusters to pass the torch to three males and 1 female, I think. Originally they wanted this film to be a continuation, not a reboot but since Harold Ramis died and Ivan Reitman pulled out… there have been sudden changes.

I think the only reason they’re making this all-female is that their delusional minds, an all-female Ghostbusters would be a “hit”. Well all the long time Ghostbusters fans have responded and they’re not welcoming that idea. Nobody wants this to happen.

Will any of the original “Ghostbusters” be involved? I wouldn’t be surprised that Bill Murray will finally agree to sign on to it just to draw people into to see this but even Bill being in it wouldn’t be able to save it.

We wanted the original 4 in the film but since Harold passed away they should have killed the project altogether. I hope this film flops hard.


All female Ghostbusters cast finally revealed and it sucks!!!

What happened to Rebel Wilson? They decided they didn’t want her — either that or she turned it down or what?

Anyway, we all knew that Melissa McCarthy is gonna be involved ’cause Paul Feig worked on a few movies with her in the past. I’m not happy with the rest of the cast, though.


I’m already smelling a box office bomber. Nobody’s gonna see this if the original guys aren’t gonna be involved, ya know?

The only people that will probably be interested in seeing this movie are newbies who knows nothing about Ghostbusters like women and children for example. The long-time die-hards are NOT gonna be interested in this film, I can tell ya that right now.

I know I keep saying that I shouldn’t negatively judge a movie early but I’m doing it for this one. This film is gonna suck hard.

It’s interesting to see that Sony vows to move forward to get this film made when they very well know that no one wants it to happen. I want a “Ghostbusters 3” like they originally planned, not a freakin’ reboot.

How much do you wanna bet this film is gonna flop? If it becomes a hit, that would be shocking.


Melissa McCarthy is NOW in early talks for “Ghostbusters”…

Like everybody didn’t see this one coming??? I think we all predicted that Melissa McCarthy would be one of the firsts to get casted for “Ghostbusters” and most of us was predictably right. *sigh*

Like most, I don’t want this movie to happen and they should really leave it alone.


It’s probably gonna tank in the box office anyways so no need to worry about it.

Look like Melissa is trying to lose weight for the role as you can see in the photo above so I don’t think we’ll have to worry about a huge woman running around with a proton pack.

The film is still gonna suck, though. They should have killed this movie after Harold Ramis died.


Paul Feig talks more on “Ghostbusters” re-boot…

Originally, Dan Aykroyd visioned this movie as a continuation of some sort, leaving off from where “Ghosbusters II” ended. Dan’s original idea was that he wanted new recruits for the new Ghostbusters… 3 new young males and 1 female being trained by the 4 original Ghostbusters (Ray, Peter, Winston and Egon). Since Harold Ramis passed away, Ivan Reitman stepped down from directing and Bill Murray finally saying “No”… the creative direction spiraled out of control and the story had to make some changes.

After Sony approached director Paul Feig, Paul gave them the idea that he wanted the Ghostbusters to be all female and Sony agreed with the idea.

Paul explains that this new movie is a complete reboot. A new origin story. It will not have anything to do with the previous Ghostbusters films at all. Kind of like “Man of Steel” not having anything to do with the earlier Superman films. Paul doesn’t explain the plot to the new Ghostbusters, he’s keeping it under wraps for now but he does give us some of his ideas a little bit.

Am I the only one who haven’t seen “Bridesmaids” or “The Heat”? I’m not a chick flick kind of guy so I’d probably stay away from these movies and from what I’ve seen both of those movies got mixed reviews.

Even though I am losing interest in the new “Ghostbusters” film, I still hope we get a Louis Tully cameo. Rick Moranis coming back for a short role would be awesome. Seeing the new “Ghostbusters” film for Louis Tully alone would be worth it!!! If Louis Tully comes back that would be good enough to be in line for it.

I’m still betting my money that Melissa McCarthy is gonna be the first one to get casted.
