Sony is set to debut the new Ghostbusters trailer at the end of this month. We recently showed you the first toys featuring main characters Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones) and Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon). Today, director Paul Feig revealed a look at Lego's upcoming playset from the movie on his Twitter page, with Yahoo! Movies later revealing the full set of photos. Be warned, though, since a few of these images contain potential Spoilers. Read on at your own risk.
The Lego set features mini-figure versions of all four main characters, along with Chris Hemsworth as the Ghostbusters' secretary, Kevin. These photos give us our first look at the ghostly villain, known as the Red Daemon, while a second photo of Kevin teases that he in fact becomes possessed by a ghost, at some point in the Ghostbusters remake.

Warning – there could be spoilers round these parts…
If you’ve been following superhero news over the last month, then you’ll have seen how Lego sets have potentially given away huge spoilers for both Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Well, the newly released images for the tie-in Lego set for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot may have done the same thing.
Check out the images below:
The curious images are of Chris Hemsworth’s receptionist character, who appears to be called Kevin. The design of the minifigure suggests that Kevin will try and become a fellow Ghostbuster ala Louis Tully in 1989’s Ghostbusters II. However, it doesn’t look like it works out well for him as he becomes possessed… ala Louis Tully from 1984’s Ghostbusters.
What we’re saying is, Kevin is a combination of Louis and Janine.

Sony is finally rebooting one of it's most infamous franchises this summer with Ghostbusters, which finds an all-female crew taking over for the previous spirit chasers. And in a unique twist, Annie Potts's secretary is being replaced by Marvel heavyweight Chris Hemsworth. We have your first look at Chris Hemsworth's Kevin in 5 new photos below.
These latest images also give us a new look at the main cast of Ghostbusters. Kristen Wiig leads this crew, starring as Erin Gilbert. She is joined by Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates. Kate McKinnon stars as Jillian Holtzmann. And Leslie Jones brings up the backend as Patty Tolan.
These new Ghostbusters exist in an entirely different universe than the 1984 Ghostbusters. The story centers on Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), who, years ago, wrote a book that posited ghosts do in fact exist. The plot picks up with Erin »

I Hate wine! Seriously, no kidding, I cannot drink it, smell it and I don’t like to talk about it. The origin of this distaste for fermented grape juice? It was when I was in the Navy (there he goes again!) I was on liberty in Brindisi, Italy (Bill remembers!) We were in a restaurant on a bright, sunny Italian Sunday afternoon. We ordered food and wine. The wine came in pitchers, not bottles. I don’t recall the food ever arriving, don’t remember leaving the restaurant, going back to the ship, none of that, complete blackout.
Literally one minute in the restaurant, the next lying face down in my rack strangling on my own sick. I won’t go into any more sordid details, I’ll spare you that. Sufficient to note I was in trouble with the Navy, had gotten horribly sick on a liberty boat, »

Democracy (from the Greek demos, "the people," and kratia, "power") has been the foundation for many of the great accomplishments of Western Civilization: Greek culture, the American Revolution, the fall of tyranny everywhere, and that time Kelly Clarkson won American Idol. Now, the people have combined their powers Captain Planet-style in an attempt to add yet another jewel to democracy's shimmering crown: More than 40,000 have signed a Change.org petition to have Snoop Dogg narrate his own season of Planet Earth. The movement is inspired by Jimmy Kimmel segments called "Plizzanet Earth" wherein the illustrious Snoop provides voiceover for the BBC series originally narrated by David Attenborough and (in the U.S. version) Sigourney Weaver. The petition, which Kelly Ooton of Lincoln, Nebraska posted on January 28, makes its case succinctly: "Snoop Dogg has narrated some Planet Earth in the past but yo we need him to narrate full episodes.

But, as the evening in a chic restaurant progresses, dark secrets emerge about their respective children. A monstrous crime has been committed by the Lohman kids, and the two couples are divided about how to handle the situation.
Moverman, whose last film was Gere’s “Time Out of Mind,” has adapted Koch’s novel and will direct. »

Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale
Director: Walter Hill
Following a remarkable year in cinematic transgender representation with films like Sean Baker’s Tangerine, Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl, and Gaby Dellal’s About Ray, not to mention prolific public figures such as Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox maintaining notable visibility, positive depictions of the transgender community have marked 2015 as a watershed year. But not unlike the first wave queer theory which bitterly criticized historically negative depictions of Lgbt characters prior to the early 90s New Queer Cinema movement, Trans representation is under increased scrutiny, which results in severe cultural policing. One of the reasons we fail to see queer characters utilized in contemporary genre film is due to an exploitative history we’ve been unable to divorce ourselves from, those unseemly memories of demeaning cinematic representation. Comedy and horror were once the only ‘low »

Following Alan Rickman’s death on Thursday, we asked you which of his performances were most memorable and how the actor’s work touched your life
I adored Alan Rickman from an early age for his bigger, more widely known roles and became more interested in his more off the beaten track work, such as the incredible Snow Cake film he did with Sigourney Weaver in 2006. As a depressed teenager, often in and out of hospital with frequent, fraught experiences with social services, I wrote him a short letter telling him how his films brought some joy and escapism to my life. With a remarkably quick turnaround came a very encouraging, kind letter back and a signed photo. Thankfully, nearly ten years later, my life has turned around. I will remember this man and his kindness, creativity and compassion fondly for the rest of my life. I only hope he »

Ridley Scott's multiple Oscar nominated film The Martian, screenplay by Drew Goddard, stars Matt Damon as astronaut Mark Watney with Jessica Chastain as Commander Melissa Lewis in charge of Nasa's mission to Mars. Dariusz Wolski's cinematography, Arthur Max's production design, Harry Gregson-Williams' score, mixed with The O'Jays, Gloria Gaynor, Thelma Houston, Donna Summer, Vicky Sue Robinson, Abba and David Bowie's Starman add to the journey. The director of Alien starring Sigourney Weaver, Blade Runner with Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer and Sean Young, and Prometheus with Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce and Charlize Theron, is also a dog man.

While director Ridley Scott revisited his beloved Alien franchise in 2012's Prometheus, the film didn't have as many connections to the original thriller than many fans wanted. Last year, the filmmaker make the blockbuster announcement that his sequel to Prometheus will be entitled Alien: Covenant, which has been confirmed to start a new trilogy that will eventually lead up to the original Alien. With production set to begin in two months, the filmmaker confirmed during a backstage interview at the Golden Globes, courtesy of Screen Slam, that he's aiming for a "hard R" rating with Alien: Covenant, which he hopes is even scarier than the original.
"I'm going to do a hard R. It's going to be pretty tough. I always remember walking down the edge in Saint Louis when we were previewing [Alien]. I couldn't sit through the film one more time. I walked down the edge into the kitchen »
The doctor is in, once again. Season seven of fan-beloved British dramedy “Doc Martin” makes its U.S. debut on Thursday, and star Martin Clunes is excited for his American fans to see what’s in store for the dwellers of Portwenn in the episodes to come.
Clunes stars as the grouchy Dr. Martin Ellingham on the ITV series, bringing his medical services to a sleepy Cornish town after he must leave his post as a top London surgeon when he develops a fear of blood. Season six ended on a question mark as Ellingham’s beloved Louisa (played by Caroline Catz) and their baby were headed for Spain without him.
Calling in from his home in Dorset, Clunes spoke to Variety about the future of the series, the (vast) difference between the show’s British fans and its American ones, and whether Doc’s rudeness ever goes too far. »

Director: J.A. Bayona
Writer: Patrick Ness
Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona adapts Patrick Ness’ celebrated children’s book A Monster Calls for his third feature. Ness re-worked the story for the screen in this Us-Spanish co-production from Bayona, whose previous films were the Guillermo Del Toro executive produced The Orphanage (2007) and Oscar nominated The Impossible (2012). The tale concerns a 13 year old boy who suffers a recurring nightmare every night since his mother fell ill. In response to the child’s plight, a tree from the garden outside transforms itself into a monster and visits the boy. A teaser trailer dropped in November, and several stills were released in Spain, with principal photography having finished much earlier in 2015. Liam Neeson stars as the tree monster, and it seems the considerable special effects required explain the prolonged post-production period. Bayona tapped Sigourney Weaver to play newcomer Lewis MacDougall’s »

With just seven months until the new Ghostbusters hits the big screen, a star from the beloved original movies has passed away. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that actor David Margulies, who played New York City Mayor Lenny Clotch in both 1984's Ghostbusters and the 1989 sequel Ghostbusters 2, has passed away at the age of 78 in New York City. The actor's agent Mary Harden confirmed the news, revealing that he passed from a lengthy battle with an undisclosed illness.

He delivered the memorable line, »
Director: Benoît Jacquot
Writer: Benoît Jacquot
We’re still sulking over the initial plans Luca Guadagnino had for adapting Dom Delillo’s novella The Body Artist back in 2013, a project that fell apart soon after a cast comprised of Isabelle Huppert, Sigourney Weaver, David Cronenberg, and Denis Lavant was announced. Producer Paulo Branco reassembled the package for French director Benoît Jacquot, who re-wrote the screenplay with actress Julia Roy (If You Don’t, I Will, 2014), deciding on a different approach for the material, now featuring notables such as Amalric and Balibar. Jacquot, often an underrated filmmaker, has had a prolific few years following the success of Farewell, My Queen (2012), competing in Venice a year later with 3 Hearts (2014) and popping up in competition at Berlin 2015 with an adaptation of The Diary of a Chambermaid (previously filmed by Jean Renoir and Luis Bunuel). We’re excited to see how Jacquot »
