Entertainment Weekly also has an <a href="" class="postlink">interview with the would-be Director</a> where he discusses his vision for a new Ghostbusters movie including rebooting the whole franchise in a completely different universe with female actresses taking the lead. The news also includes the hiring of <span style="font-style: italic">The Heat's</span> writer <a href="" class="postlink">Katie Dipplod</a> to work on the script.<br /><br />Fans have been raising their concerns on social media, such as the <a href="" class="postlink">Ghostbusters Fans Facebook page</a> and <a href="" class="postlink">Twitter</a>. Before everyone gets up in arms about this movie, everyone needs to remember this important fact. We have been to this point in &quot;Ghostbusters 3&quot; development several times. It was only a few years ago now that Etan Cohen was hired as the writer with Ivan Reitman directing. A few years before that, it was Lee Eisenberg &amp; Gene Stupnitsky. And for a decade before that, Dan Aykroyd was certain he had the best script for a new Ghostbusters movie.<br /><br />Before jumping to rash decisions and making a bunch of ignorant comments, let's consider for a second that this doesn't actually put us any closer to a new Ghostbusters movie than we have been before. It might be fun to think about the idea, or dismiss it entirely, but whatever does come out of it will be a positive change for the Ghostbusters franchise.

The integration of Ghostbusters into The Quest for Stuff highlights Fox and TinyCo’s unique strategy of combining globally renowned franchises into Quahog’s mobile universe.<br /><br />As a part of a themed in-game event set to play out over the next several weeks, Peter accidentally opens a dark portal in the Quahog cemetery and unleashes all manner of ghosts and goblins on the city. With residents spooked and chaos looming, Quahog has no choice but to wonder, “who you gonna call?!” <br /><br />Players will answer the call, helping FAMILY GUY cast members create their own team of Ghostbusters to defeat the unwanted spirits and restore order.<br /><br />The event also introduces a new crafting interface to the game. Defeating ghoulish invaders will reward players with ‘soul points’ and crafting materials, which they can combine in a spooky crafting cauldron to create new characters, buildings and decorations. Through a ‘choose your own adventure’ style gameplay experience, players take divergent paths to reach the ultimate goal of saving Quahog from undead lurkers.&quot;</span><br /><br />Download from iTunes and Google Play: <br /><br /><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> Thu, 02 Oct 2014 19:04:07 +0000 We Love Fine's Womens Ghostbusters Rompers 2014-09-25T16:35:45-04:00 AJ Quick <iframe width="400" height="255" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br /><br />It is about time someone made a women's Ghostbusters outfit that doesn't involve booty shorts. <a href="" class="postlink">We Love Fine</a> has taken up the task by creating this line of officially licensed Ghostbusters Rompers for women.<br /><br />Check out these and their other licensed products here:<br /><br /><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> Thu, 25 Sep 2014 21:35:45 +0000 Beyond the Marquee's Interview with Stephen Dane 2014-09-18T14:17:28-04:00 AJ Quick <iframe width="400" height="255" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br /><br /><a href="" class="postlink">Beyond the Marquee</a> is celebrating the release of Ghostbusters 1 &amp; 2 on Blu-ray by hosting a Ghostbusters week.

The playing cards, which are officially licensed, have already reached their $10,000 goal, but they could go much higher.<br /><br />The project was created by Erik Dahlman of Albino Dragon, a purveyor of specially themed playing cards. Their previous licenses include The Goonies, The Princess Bride and many others. They have already released designs for many of the card backs which can be found on their <a href=";type=3" class="postlink">Facebook</a>.<br /><br />If you haven't backed the Kickstarter yet, don't fret as there still are 3 days left to get in on the offer. You can pledge $15 (shipped) for a deck on the Kickstarter page here: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... ying-cards</a><!-- m --> Tue, 16 Sep 2014 04:48:45 +0000 A Review of Ghostbusters 1 & 2 on Blu-ray 2014-09-15T12:16:59-04:00 AJ Quick <a href="" class="postlink"><img src="" alt="Image" /></a><br /><br />The release of the <a href="" class="postlink">Ghostbusters 1 &amp; 2 Blu-ray</a> is finally upon us, and will be out in stores tomorrow. We got our copy a few days early so that we could write up a review and check out the special features (and they are special!). We'll be keeping the straight review here, and spoilers, screenshots and more will be posted <a href="" class="postlink">here</a>.<br /><br />Lets start with the Ghostbusters 1 Blu-ray.<br /><br />The <a href="" class="postlink">Ghostbusters Blu-ray</a> features a lot of carryover from the previous Blu-ray release and even the 1999 DVD release. This Blu-ray is basically a reissue of the previous Blu-ray release. It does have some new content and most of the content from previous releases is included. New special features include a gallery of <span style="font-style: italic">some</span> of the artwork from the 30th Annivserary traveling art show, alternative takes (from 4:3 TV broadcasts), Ray Parker Jr's music video, a high quality transfer of the Ghostbusters trailer and a round table discussion between Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman. The actual movie transfer appears to be the same as the last 4K Mastered release with only minor changes with sharpness, brightness and coloration. If you already have the most recent Ghostbusters Blu-ray release, this might not be worthwhile to pick up unless you <span style="font-weight: bold">have</span> to see the new special features. What you aren't going to want to miss is the Ghostbusters 2 Blu-ray release however...<br /><br /><a href="" class="postlink"><img src="" alt="Image" /></a><br /><br />The <a href="" class="postlink">Ghostbusters 2 Blu-ray</a> is amazing to finally have. This Blu-ray was original planned to be released FIVE years ago for the 20th Anniversary of Ghostbusters 2, but for some reason it was not. Lets just say that as paultry as the selection of special features is, they are worth seeing. There are a full six minutes of deleted scenes (<a href="" class="postlink">spoilers here</a>) that could have changed the whole tone of the movie. There are unfortunately a few good ones we would have liked to have seen included that were not, but perhaps one day. One of the best special features on the Blu-ray (and there are really only 4 in total) was a collection of original Ghostbusters 2 trailers, one of which was very interesting (I'll leave that up to you to discover). As for the actual transfer of the film, since Ghostbusters 2 was filmed on a higher quality film stock, the quality of the transfer is amazing. Colors, levels and everything is exactly as it is intended. Since it is several times the quality and resolution of DVD, there are a TON of new things to discover, and having watched through the film over the weekend... you will discover them!<br /><br />Picking up Ghostbusters on Blu-ray tomorrow? <a href="" class="postlink">Ghostbusters Fans has a $5 OFF coupon</a> just for you.
