It wouldn't be the first movie to try and rip off the '80s classic. We look at 6 flicks that desperately wanted to be 1984's Ghostbusters below...
1. Pixels (2015)
In Adam Sandler's latest offering, video game characters spring to life and declare war on Earth after misinterpreting feeds of classic arcade games. It's down to a disparate team of former hardcore gamers to save the day.
Conceptually, Pixels is bursting with great ideas but sinks thanks to its leading man getting crowbarred in - this is very much an "Adam Sandler Movie" and much the worse for it. To hammer home the Ghostbusters link there's even a cameo role for Dan Aykroyd.
2. Men in Black (1997)

Daniel Trunkman (Vaughn), a hard-working but disillusioned salesman, decides to set up on his own and take on the big man – or more specifically his cut-throat former boss Chuck (Miller). Accompanied by two unlikely associates; Timothy McWinters (Wilkinson) and Mike Pancake (Franco), he travels to Europe to close the most important deal of his life. But what begins as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every imaginable – and unimaginable – way, including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit.

Made in Chelsea's ninth series sadly came to an end on E4 last night (boo), but the closing credits gave us an exciting glimpse of its summer spin-off series set in Los Angeles.
If the La series is anywhere near as fun as last year's NYC stint, it's going to be another American adventure full of squabbles, flirting and potential new relationships. Here are a few things we definitely want to see happening when it returns:
Ok, Los Angeles might be quite far away from New York, but surely we'll see some kind of reunion between Alik and Louise? Despite parting ways last week, their relationship remains intact and it is a must to see the Fonz-wannabe coming back. Any excuse to see him arrive in his leather jacket shouting "hey babe!" really.

The hockey comedy Goon was a nice little underrated gem of 2011, and while there had been talk of a sequel in the interim, it was unclear if the follow-up would actually come to fruition. Cut to today, where production is indeed underway on Goon 2, which is officially titled Goon: Last of the Enforcers. We know filming has begun because Jay Baruchel just shared an image of the cast reunited on set, decked out in full hockey gear. In addition to producing and filling a supporting role onscreen, Baruchel co-wrote the first film alongside Evan Goldberg. For Last of the Enforcers, Baruchel is making his directorial debut, taking over helming duties from Goon’s Michael Dowse. Goon star Seann William Scott returns in the lead role as Doug “the Thug” Glatt, who in the first film went from bar bouncer to enforcer for a minor league hockey team. In the sequel, »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

2011's R-rated raunchy-sports-comedy-with-a-heart-of-gold Goon is the latest comedy to be getting a sequel. And while law of averages are not in its favor when it comes to comedy sequels, Seann William Scott, Jay Baruchel, Liev Schreiber and Alison Pill are all set to return and throw around hockey pucks as much as they do certain four-letter words in Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Joining them inside the ice rink, however, is Elisha Cuthbert. The "24" and Girl Next Door star joins the movie to play Pill's outlandish sister. Pill plays Eva, the love interest to rising hockey star Doug "The Thug" Glatt (Scott). This new movie finds Doug and his team, Halifax Highlanders, working with a variety of new players during a pro lockout. So it looks like Cutherbert isn't the only newbie in the Goon universe, and with production to begin on June 21 in Toronto under producers David Gross, Jesse Shapira and Jeff Arkuss, »

The key moment in the acting career of Dwayne Johnson is an obvious one that occurs not very long into The Rundown, the 2003 adventure film that paired him with the intermittently watchable Seann William Scott. As Johnson’s character, a “retrieval expert”, walks into a club to collect one of his charges, Arnold Schwarzenegger, playing himself for all we know, tips his hat to Johnson and simply says, “Have fun.” It’s a blessing, first of all, from the undisputed king of action film braggadocio, but as delivered by the Terminator himself, it’s also a warning, a reminder to not take the blows of his career too seriously, especially in an arduous career that will likely involve getting critically lambasted on the regular despite being popular as all get out. The funny thing is that Johnson has never seemed to struggle in his career, even when his talents have »

In this day and age of film criticism, less of it is seemingly always a bad thing, and when a bastion like The New York Times announces they’re cutting back, it seems like a particularly painful blow. However, Variety Thursday obtained an email from Nyt Film Critic A. O. Scott explaining that the Times would no longer be reviewing every movie opening in New York, and the ironic truth is that this “new” policy may go a long way toward bettering the film coverage.
“Because of the increasing volume of new films released each year, the Times is no longer able to guarantee reviews of all New York theatrical releases,” Scott said in an email. He went on to add in a phone interview to Variety that the paper had already instated such a policy quietly earlier this year, and coyly confirmed as much on Twitter.
In 2013, the Times published nearly 900 film reviews. »

Need help finding a movie to watch? Let TWC find the best fit for your mood here.] Ever since becoming a household name as Monica on the hit sitcom "Friends," Courteney Cox has been a persistent screen presence, most notably in film for her recurring role as the feisty survivor Gale Weathers in the "Scream" franchise. She currently enjoys a devoted fan base for starring in the TV comedy "Cougar Town," for which she also produces and often directs. It is no surprise, then, that Cox has now turned to filmmaking, with first the Lifetime movie "TalhotBlond" and most recently her theatrical feature debut, "Just Before I Go." The film follows Ted (Seann William Scott) as he returns to his hometown to settle some unfinished »

There is a small, but devoted and vocal contingent, who believe the 2011 Canadian hockey flick, "Goon," is a modern sports comedy classic. And while I am not one of those people, there are enough of them that it has turned the talk of a followup into a reality. Read More: Review: 'Goon' Is A Middling Sports Comedy Elevated By A Surprising Turn By Seann William Scott Jay Baruchel will get on the ice to co-write (with Jesse Chabot), make his directorial feature debut, and star in "Goon: The Last Of The Enforcers." Seann William Scott will return to reprise his role as Doug Glatt, whose skills on the ice have less to do with puck-handling and goal scoring, than with using his fists. The new film will find Glatt back in action with the Halifax Highlanders when there's a pro hockey lockout, presumably leading to more unhinged on-ice action. »

When last we checked in on the progress of the sequel to 2012’s hockey comedy Goon, word was that the film would shoot in the summer under the direction of the first film’s Michael Dowse. There has been a slight change in plans as Jay Baruchel will instead make his directorial debut with what we now know is called Goon: Last Of The Enforcers.Baruchel has been a driving force behind the Goon films from the start, and he’ll add directing to co-writing (with Jesse Chabot) and acting in the movie this time.Seann William Scott is back as hockey enforcer Doug “The Thug” Glatt for a story that sees his team, the Halifax Highlanders playing alongside new team members during a lockout.
