PopWatch Confessional: Which classic (or 'classic') film have you never seen?

9 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Terminator was released 30 years ago this weekend—but our Hillary Busis hadn’t seen it until this past week. (Of course, she's not alone; everyone has at least one shameful gap in their pop cultural knowledge. So we opened up the question to our staffers: What’s a classic (or "classic") film that you’ve missed? Read through our choices—and feel free to chime in with your own. Kyle Ryan, EW.com editor: It won Best Picture in 1962 and is No. 7 on the AFI's "100 best films" list, but not only have I never seen Lawrence of Arabia, I »

10 Reasons An All-Female Ghostbusters Is A Terrible Idea

23 October 2014 12:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Hollywood Reporter

Though rumours have been swirling for months that a new, all-female Ghostbusters movie was in the works, it was only earlier this month that director Paul Feig confirmed that it was actually happening, and that he would be taking the helm. Unsurprisingly, the reception to the news has been wildly mixed, with many expressing their disappointment, while less-articulate commentators have opted for the usual sexist mudslinging that does nobody any favours.

An all-female Ghostbusters sequel-reboot is either going to completely blow or be a surprisingly refreshing take on a classic franchise, that much is sure. However, as much as women-centric comedies should be encouraged given the lack of movies (be it comedies or otherwise) topped by female casts in Hollywood, there is plenty of good reason to be skeptical about this decision.

Outside of all the sexist reasons, there are plenty of legitimate answers as to why an »

Melissa McCarthy Discusses Ghostbusters Reboot

21 October 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When it was announced that Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) will be directing the upcoming "Ghostbusters" reboot and that it will focus on a female team, it was immediately assumed that Melissa McCarthy would be one of the Ghostbusters. McCarthy is not only one of the most successful comediennes in Hollywood today, but she has done a total of three films with Feig. So if anyone is going to be cast in the "Ghostbusters" reboot, it will likely be McCarthy. The actress recently appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where she revealed that she has yet to be cast. The other guest on the show, Lena Dunham, explained how important the "Ghostbusters" reboot is to Hollywood actresses. "I have to say, since I've heard that rumor, I think every lady in town who fancies herself a jokester wants in." McCarthy currently co-stars with Bill Murray in "St. Vincent." Not long ago, »

Ellen DeGeneres and Lena Dunham Want to Be 'Ghostbusters'

20 October 2014 4:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Melissa McCarthy and Girls creator/star Lena Dunham both appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier today, where host Ellen DeGeneres suggested that they all be cast in the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters that Paul Feig is directing. After Ellen made the initial suggestion, Lena Dunham had this to say.

"I have to say, since I've heard that rumor I think every lady in town who fancies herself a jokester wants in."

After rumors of an all-female Ghostbusters started popping up last month, original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray suggested that his St. Vincent co-star Melissa McCarthy be cast, along with Kristen Wiig, Linda Cardellini and Emma Stone. It was announced earlier this month that Paul Feig is officially directing an all-female version of Ghostbusters, which lead to The X-Files star Gillian Anderson expressing her interest in the project last week.

Of course, no one has been officially cast yet, but »

Melissa McCarthy Might Not Be A Guarantee For Ghostbusters

20 October 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's not hard to see how simple logic would lead a person to believe that Melissa McCarthy will star in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. The actress is not only one of the most popular comediennes working in features today - making her an easy fit for the all-female cast - and she has a good amount of experience collaborating with director Paul Feig, having starred in his last two films (Bridesmaids and The Heat). But while it makes all the sense in the world that McCarthy would be joining the cast, nothing has been made official at this point. McCarthy was recently a guest on The Ellen Show, and addressed the subject of the Ghostbusters reboot while sitting down with host Ellen DeGeneres and fellow guest Lena Dunham. During the conversation, DeGeneres made the insinuation that McCarthy was already signed on for the franchise project, but the Tammy star instantly »

Melissa McCarthy Not Yet Part Of ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot; Lena Dunham and Ellen DeGeneres Want In

20 October 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The second rumors began circulating of an all-female Ghostbusters, the first person people though of was Melissa McCarthy. The Bridesmaids star is the most popular female comedic actress out there right now and her inclusion seemed like a forgone conclusion. That got even more likely when her frequent collaborator, Paul Feig, signed on to direct. […]

Are Ellen DeGeneres, Melissa McCarthy and Lena Dunham the New Ghostbusters?

20 October 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ellen DeGeneres is throwing her name in the ring for 'Ghostbusters 3.'

Ellen DeGeneres is taking it upon herself to cast the new Ghostbusters 3 -- and this trio isn't too far off from some of our casting picks.

Bridesmaids actress Melissa McCarthy and Girls star Lena Dunham joined Ellen on her Monday show and the daytime host took the opportunity to pitch the movie to the funny women. "The three of us, I think we should maybe do Ghostbusters together or something like that," Ellen told the women.

Turning to Melissa, Ellen said, "I think you’re in already." Despite some prying on both Ellen and Lena's part to get the actress to confess she's already been cast in the sequel, Melissa denied the claims several times, saying, "I’m not in. I’m not it!"

Lena, however, is all for being a Ghostbuster. "I have to »

Bill Murray offers up casting suggestions for the all-female Ghostbusters

16 October 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week it was announced that Sony is working with Paul Feig to reboot classic 80s comedy Ghostbusters with an all-female cast. We’ve heard from Ernie Hudson on his rather controversial thoughts and now we can hear from Peter Venkman himself Bill Murray on his views on the reboot.

On David Letterman last night, Murray gave some thoughts on an all-female cast saying, “I think it would be swell. I would go watch that one in a second.”

As for casting Murray said, “I think you want to have some funny girls, and you want to have some action girls. I always think of girls I’ve worked with lately… like Melissa McCarthy. She’s very funny. I like Emma Stone, I think she’s funny as heck. I think my friend Linda Cardellini could be an action hero – and funny.”

Murray then went on to ask the audience for suggestions. »

The TV shows that owe a debt to The Wonder Years

16 October 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Now that it’s finally been released on DVD, we look at the TV shows that built on The Wonder Years’ foundations…

The Wonder Years, famous for being the show that made a generation of kids nostalgic for a decade they’d never even set foot in, finally arrived on DVD this month following the resolution of a years-long music rights tangle. Neal Marlens and Carol Black’s comedy drama ran for six seasons between 1988 and 1993 on ABC, following Fred Savage’s Kevin Arnold through his late-sixties and early-seventies suburban adolescence.

Thematically, stylistically, and tonally, The Wonder Years blazed a trail for television comedy and teen-focused drama that was subsequently traipsed down by numerous shows, from the superlative Freaks And Geeks and My So-Called Life to How I Met Your Mother, Malcolm In The Middle and countless others. Its innovative film-style use of a single-camera, lack of laughter track, fourth-wall breaking, »

Will Bill Murray Cameo In Ghostbusters Reboot?

16 October 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the Ghostbusters reboot kicks into gear amid screams, jeers, and mild optimism, the question that continues to rise in everyone’s mind is simply: will Bill Murray be there? For anyone who has followed the ups and downs surrounding the oft-discussed Ghostbusters III, the answer must be a resounding No. Murray has repeatedly voiced his total lack of interest in appearing in another Ghostbusters film, despite both fan and media speculation that maybe he can be persuaded. Will that all change now that Paul Feig is set to helm a Ghostbusters reboot with an all-female cast?

The answer remains ambiguous, but it seems that Murray is a bit more open to the idea of appearing in Feig’s film than he has been in any past iterations. In speaking to Variety (via /Film), the actor admitted that a new, fresh take on Ghostbusters is certainly what’s needed. That »

Mindy Kaling and Emma Stone Respond to Ghostbusters Casting Suggestions—So Are They Game?!

15 October 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Fans and celebs have been revealing their fantasy casts for Ghosbusters 3 since news broke that it's actually happening, and two names that seem to pop up time and time again are Mindy Kaling and Emma Stone. In fact, Kaling put together a female Ghostbusters team in her 2011 book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, putting herself alongside Emily Blunt, Taraji P. Hinson and Natalie Portman. So now that it's actually happening, is she down to take on one of the roles in Paul Feig's project? "I love Paul, and I would never deign to take up his time by lobbying," she said to Vulture during the New Yorker Festival party this past weekend. "It's such a amazing movie, that the whole area »

The studio wants the reluctant actor to return for Paul Feig's remake, reports Variety.

"The studio gets really crazy about it," Murray told the magazine. "What they really want to do is resurrect a franchise.

"People say, 'Bill, you could get so rich!'" he continued. "I'm Ok. I don't look it, but I'm doing Ok."

The rumours that Feig would direct a reboot about an all-female Ghostbusters team were recently confirmed.
