FourThirtyThree Inc. to shutter Ghostbusters World

Image

After nearly two years, Ghostbusters World, will be coming to an end on the 13th of August, 2020, as revealed in a statement published on the Ghostbusters World twitter account:
Ghostbusters World will be closing down on August 13, 2020. We hope you have enjoyed the game and thank you for all your support.
Please check your in-game mailbox for additional details and a special thank you gift to make the most of the last 34 days of service

Developed by FourThirtyThree Inc., the mobile game sought to get a slice of the success of Pokémon GO, through getting Ghostbusters-loving players out and about, battling ghosts and ghoulies solo, and with fellow fans.

Peter H. Aykroyd, father of Dan, has passed away

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of author Peter Hugh Aykroyd, father of Ghostbusters writer/actor Dan Aykroyd, who passed away on Sunday at the grand age of 98.

For much of his life, Peter H. Aykroyd was a civil servant for the Canadian government, serving as engineer in the construction of Quebec's Gatineau Parkway, as well as working with former Canadian Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau, father of current Prime Minister Justin. He was also instrumental in the launch of the Community Foundation of Kingston and Area, Kingston's largest charitable organisation.

However, it is Peter's literary works for which he is best known, his scope of titles ranged from A Sense of Place, a personal history of the Aykroyd family, to The Anniversary Compulsion, an account of Canada's centennial in 1967.

Peter was also avidly interested in the world of paranormal, maintaining a collection and interest held by his grandfather, Dr. Samuel Augustus Aykroyd, a dentist and spiritualist, which would eventually lead to the publication of A History of Ghosts: The True Story of Seances, Mediums, Ghosts, and Ghostbusters.

It is safe to conclude that Peter's interest in the spiritual world sewed the seeds that would flower into the Ghostbusters property and fandom we know today. Because of that we all owe Peter H. Aykroyd a debt of thanks for the inspiration he gave his son.

Ghostbusters Day - Drive-In Movie Night

Image

On June 4th Sony Pictures and Ghost Corp announced the decision to postpone the planned events for Ghostbusters Day following the combined situation of the on-going Covid-19 pandemic, and the unrest across the United States and the world following the death of George Floyd.

Sony has now updated their schedule, announcing a mass-screening of Ghostbusters across 31 states, as well as select screenings in Alberta, Canada, to commence on July 1st.

In addition to the movie itself, the screenings are planned to include a special message for the fans.

To check to see if there's a screening near you, and to book tickets, visit the Ghostbusters Drive-In Movie Night.

GBFans.com is making face shields and needs your help!

Image

GBFans.com is a diverse community with members of all backgrounds in nearly every country of the world. We have a large number of medical professionals, emergency workers and frontline staff that needs our help. There are members of our community that are Doctors, Nurses, EMTs and other essential personnel that are at a high risk of exposure to Coronavirus (COVID-19). We must come together as a community to help provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to those in need, including our community members.

GBFans.com is in a unique position, as many of the tools and equipment that are involved in the manufacture of costumes and props are also essential for the production of PPE. While the GBFans.com Shop has been closed down during our state's mandated closure order, we have been hard at work to shift our production from producing costumes and props, to producing face shields for our at risk medical professionals.

We need your help to make these face shields. Please make your donation to the project page here: https://www.gbfans.com/face-shields/
