Not so easy to dismiss the possibility of easter eggs to the game/idw/whatever popping up when he's literally including easter eggs to the role playing game! Such a lovely touch!

I am not certain we will get this good a look at the book
I bet they will just to sell it as a real world book and/or a journal book. Not to say it's about merchandising but they'd sell a bunch no doubt.

I absolutely would buy it. :) Seems like something you might see on a Hot Topic shelf.

To those who can do 3d modeling for printers , I would love to see the cover become available for printing once we get a clearer shot of it. My dreams of having Tobins spirit guide sitting next to my Army of Darkness Necrenomicon are about to come true. Nine months can't go by fast enough!

Fifty guests are viewing our responses to this Instagram post. Holy shit. But I agree with you man a lithophane with LED effects would be insane.
And somewhere, a Marketing dude is giving himself high fives: I FINALLY DID IT RIGHT.

Murray will be in Scotland next Thursday.

So, we have three options:

1- he was only celebrating his birthday with some old friends.

2- he was on set for a costume fitting and will shoot his scenes later

3- he already shot his scenes.
Option 4: The movie is doing some shooting in Scotland.

I mean, probably not. But Dan's original GB2 ideas involved Scotland.

One facet of the original films that I am interested to see mentioned is what has Oscar been up to? For so many years, it was always an assumption that Oscar would be the main protagonist of a third film and so far we have no indication the character is even in GB2020.

But with Dana's involvement, I think there will still be a reference and look forward to seeing if they will set him up for helping carry on the torch.

I also have a feeling that the end of the film (not necessarily the climax - that'll likely be some sort of underground temple -seems like the whole story will be in Oklahoma) will return the setting to NY and the firehouse.

Oh man, after 35 years we're getting to see the film version of Tobin's Spirit Guide. :) The cover isn't disappointing so far.
Did anyone else imagine it just like this? it's perfect! I always imagined it as this old dusty book not unlike the Necronomicon from Evil Dead.

Is that Eye/Temple design at the bottom of the book the same as the Summerville logo we've been seeing?

If Sony doesn't have someone working on an actual Tobin Spirit Guide to sell to us fans that looks *just* like this and filled with all sorts of info on demons and Gods and everything in between..just imagine it. Every major ghost threat from Ghostbusters, Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters, the video game and this new movie could be put in there. Plus all the very real legends and myths from all over the world??

Come on Sony. I know you guys don't like money(how is Extreme Ghostbusters still not on DVD? Or iTunes, or YouTube or the PlayStation Store! I want so badly to give you my money but you just won't let me) but please. Make this real. Make only a few thousand copies so that it becomes this really rare Spirit Book. Please!

Please no Oscar. At best a quick throwaway line.

Not everything needs to shoehorned in.

I've always imagined the ending of this film as a modern recreation of our first look at the GB's racing off to their first call in GB1

Phone rings. "WE GOT ONE* Alarm bell rings. New GB's spring into action. Down the pole, racing to put their suits on.
The doors open, we see the polished clean Ecto 1 we all know and love. Sirens blaring. Engine roaring. The Ecto 1 drives off into the night, around the corner and off into adventures unseen. Cue credits.

That to me would be a perfect ending.

Agreed.

Cameos can be a bit annoying. That's why with this film, I'd rather have no Bill Murray than a half assed Bill Murray. That goes for every cast member.

I don't want original cast cameos. I'd like the original cast supporting the film. Cameos can take you out of the movie.

With GB16 it was very odd how they handled the cameos. They felt forced. But again, that's the nature of cameos.

Before this continues let's keep in mind people here also like the movie and we have no interest in seeing another anti ATC circle jerk.

Hey, i've had to listen to the world bash on Ghostbusters II (my favorite movie) my whole life. These ATC fans better learn to get some tough skin or they're in for some rough roads ahead!
The very notion that ATC fans aren't also GB2 fans! I mean honestly! We're all in the same big old leaky boat, folks, it's just that some of us prefer some cabins to others!

ANYWAY, following that tortured metaphor, my feel is that a sweet way to include Oscar would be a little mention of him having a martial arts career off somewhere as a nod to the Deutschendorf twins. I have to agree though that I don't need to see him shoehorned in as a major character.

There's been a lot of talk about trying to honor Ramis in this film and I understand why the focus is on him so much but I would also like to see Henry (Hank) Deutschendorf honored somehow. It's not possible to include everyone that has passed but those two are priority to me.

As much as I can appreciate the sentiment of honoring Hank, I think that's a bit of a reach. He was a baby actor in a movie 30 years ago. I just don't see why they'd do that unless it was a casual "In Memory of" during the credits.

That's the kind of thing I mean. I don't mean something in your face. Perhaps his photo on a fridge. No zoom in or anything. Just there. Almost like how the twins last name was used for Vigo's. It's so subtle it's almost not there.

The IDW writers wrote a version of Tobin's Spirit Guild a little while ago, I hope they do a second edition with ghosts from this new movie and use the cover from the new prop. https://www.amazon.com/Tobins-Spirit-Gu ... 1608877086
