We lost Harold Ramis just over a month ago to Vasculitis, a group of disorders that destroy blood vessels by inflammation. Almost immediately, fans banded together to design a memorial pin or patch that would best pay tribute to Harold. The clear winner was this lapel pin designed by community member Dr. Stantz Jr.
Ghostbusters Fans is providing this pin at below cost to provide as many fans as possible with the awesome design. Pin it to your uniform, backpack, Proton Pack, t-shirt or anything that you can to pay your respects to the late Harold Ramis. Each pin is 1.5" wide and is made from a highly polished silver metal with black and red enamel lettering.
The pin is now available in the Ghostbusters Fans Shop for only $1.00 here:
IDW has released a new hardcover book which combines the first four comic stories into one single supersized book.
They said nothing could hold all 16 issues of IDW's Ghostbusters series-but they didn't count on TOTAL CONTAINMENT!
With psychokinetic energy on the rise in New York City and across the country, and new enemies-human and otherwise-threatening their billable hours, Peter, Egon, Ray, and Winston have to prove once again why the Ghostbusters are the real professionals.
Collects Volumes 1-4: The Man From The Mirror, The Most Magical Place On Earth, Haunted America, and Who Ya Gonna Call?
This book features and amazing embossed containment unit on the front and is slightly larger than your average comic book, which makes the stories easier to read. The Total Containment book is available now from the Ghostbusters Fans Shop here:
The comic storyline "Mass Hysteria" continues here with the new Ghostbusters comic issue #14, available now!
The embodiment of chaos has taken an interest in earth, and the physical laws of the universe are beginning to come apart at the seams. When Newtonian physics falter in New York City and weirdness is on the rise, you know who's gonna get called... "Mass Hysteria!" continues here!
Available now at comic stores and the Ghostbusters Fans Shop:
This project began in the spring of 2012, was shot in late 2012, previewed in 2013 at Alabama Phoenix Festival, and with the blessing of the Twin Cities Ghostbusters is now ready for release. It is our introduction to a well-established fan film universe (GB911, GB:SLC, Spilled Milk, Alabama GB Web Series) which ties in some of the major players dabbling in fan films and web series, and a labor of love from a few fans of Ghostbusters who wanted to have a little fun over a weekend or two.
We're planning to pick up from this with a stand alone fan film series of our own which we'll work on this summer. Enough talk. Ghostbusters fans, we are proud to present our fan film, "Louisiana Ghostbusters." Special thanks to Ice Park Productions and Ghostbustin' 911 for sharing Will and Kat with us for a day and allowing us to tie in our plans for a short film to your established world. Also thanks to Adam Schwartz and the crew of Alabama Ghostbusters: A Web Series for letting us use this project and your show to bridge these and other projects together into a cohesive world of fan fiction we lovingly refer to as the GBFCU (Ghostbusters Fan Cinematic Universe.)
Its hard to believe it, but Ghostbusters Fans last posted a new article about Ghostbusters 3 several years ago, and before that several more years. You'd think the largest site for Ghostbusters would be posting every single morsel of Ghostbusters 3 news and information we could possibly get, but we don't.
There is a reason why we haven't of course. Nearly everything written about Ghostbusters 3 has turned out to be false. There have been completely made up rumors, hopeful comments from Dan Aykroyd, outlandish stories about Bill Murray, and recycling of rumors from nearly 20 years ago. How many more times are we going to hear that Will Smith and Chris Farley will be in Ghostbusters 3, or that Bill Murray will be playing a ghost?
That being said, a Ghostbusters sequel or remake will be inevitable, in fact it is likely to happen multiple times more as Hollywood rightfully reboots old franchises (personally I'm a fan of some of the new reboots). At some point the rumors will stop being false or wishful thinking. I believe with the passing of Harold Ramis, a new urgency to make the film has been ignited.
Ivan Reitman recently gave an interview to Deadline in regards to Ghostbusters 3 and the future, and indeed the rumor filled past.
“There has been all kinds of stuff, unofficially written about Ghostbusters,” Reitman told me. “I’ve been reading things online for about four years, speculation on who’s writing, what they’re writing, who’s in it, who we will use, and who’s directing. We’d decided not to comment up till now, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, and it was never clear what Bill was going to do. A lot of things happened in the last few months, the most significant of which was the passing of Harold, who was a very good friend who was extraordinarily influential in my career. We did five movies together including both Ghostbusters.”
“I’m hoping we can get started by the fall, set in New York, but given the logistics and the stuff that happens, the beginning of 2015 seems more likely.”
We will continue to weed out the Ghostbusters 3 articles and separate the good from the bad. I believe we are going to start seeing a new emergence of legitimate Ghostbusters 3 news, and we will start covering it a bit more closely in the future. Just remember that until you see something official from Sony, to take all things you see about Ghostbusters 3 with a grain of salt.
Let us know what you think in the comments. Do you want to see a new Ghostbusters film? Do you think it will happen?
