New Ghostbusters Vr Experience Now Open at Madame Tussauds in New York City

19 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

If you’ve ever wanted to be the person who was called when there was something strange (and supernatural) in your neighborhood, then the new Ghostbusters: Dimension hyper-reality experience at Madame Tussauds in New York City will be like an ectoplasmic dream come true.

After purchasing a ticket for $49.75 apiece (which includes access to Madame Tussauds’ Ghostbusters Experience that’s based on the new movie), participants of Ghostbusters: Dimension put on a Vr headset that transforms their surroundings into a paranormal-plagued apartment building.

Wearing a sensory vest and wielding a fake gun that serves as your proton pack, you can make your way through the Vr experience, take on Slimer, and become the Ghostbuster you once told your teacher you wanted to grow up to be on career day. Just remember to never cross streams…

Created by Vr company The Void, this immersive Ghostbusters experience opened on July »

Batman: The Killing Joke earns $3 million from its one-night screenings

28 July 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

DC and Warner Bros. shocked everyone when they announced they would be doing a one-night only screening of their latest animated offering Batman: The Killing Joke – and it looks like it paid off.

According to the figures from Boxofficemojo, Batman: The Killing Joke earned an impressive $3.1 million from just over 1,300 screens. While it wasn’t enough to beat Star Trek Beyond or The Secret Life of Pets, it did have a higher average per screen than both. Not only that, but it also earned more than horror movie Lights Out and Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters. Not bad, Batman.

With this level of success, you’ve got to wonder whether they’d try and do it again with their next animated release.

'Ghostbusters' Director Paul Feig Will Produce 'Supermodel Snowpocalypse'

27 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Paul Feig has been weathering the storm of Ghostbusters fandom ire this year. Now instead of dealing with a flurry of bad press in real life, he's about to take on a different sort of survival story involving women as the project is an adaptation of a true story about fashion models trapped in a blizzard in Chile in 1977. When you see the title Supermodel Snowpocalypse, you may think of a cheap horror movie filled with bikinis and blood splattered over fresh white powder...

Paul Feig set to produce ‘Supermodel Snowpocalypse’ film

27 July 2016 12:02 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Paul Feig has named his next project. The Ghostbusters director will take on Supermodel Snowpocalypse, a film which will focus on ‘a real-life drama when models including Mick Jagger’s ex-wife Jerry Hall found themselves trapped at a remote ski resort in South America when a severe snowstorm hit during a location shoot for high-end department store Neiman Marcus.’

The models then turn the resort into their own drug-fueled Studio 54.

Stranded for a week with no working phones and the only access out of the building through a second-storey window, the American crew hatched a plan to escape back home.

The film will be adapted from a 2013 Elle magazine article by Mickey Rapkin. No news on who will direct, but it definitely will not be Feig.

More as it comes in.

'Ghostbusters' Director Paul Feig Will Produce 'Supermodel Snowpocalypse'

26 July 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Paul Feig has been weathering the storm of Ghostbusters fandom ire this year, and now he's about to take on a different sort of survival story involving women. This time the elements will be depicted on screen rather than felt externally, as the project is an adaptation of a true story about fashion models trapped in a blizzard in Chile in 1977.  When you see the title Supermodel Snowpocalypse, you may think of a cheap horror movie filled with bikinis and blood splattered over fresh white powder (either sort). Actually, it's just a fascinating disaster drama where a young Jerry Hall (pictured below in Batman) and others involved with a Neiman Marcus fur catalog shoot became stranded for days.  There actually are both sorts of white powder in...

Newswire: Official Ghostbusters Halloween costumes include awful wigs, sexy proton packs

26 July 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters was one of the most terrifying movies of the summer, both for people who are afraid of ghosts and for people who are afraid of women, so it makes sense that the studio behind the film is going to make a big push to sell Ghostbusters Halloween costumes later this year. So, given that Ghostbusters’ success is being recognized as a victory for gender equality, Fusion decided to take a look at some of the Ghostbusters offerings on HalloweenCostumes.com and see if they hold up to the movie’s themes.

As it turns out, the costumes are pretty standard Halloween fare for the most part, provided you ignore the weird choice of footwear. Fusion notes that official ghost boots are available separately, but if you’re already showing up to a party in a jumpsuit with an inflatable proton pack, your shoe choice isn’t »

Feig To Produce "Supermodel Snowpocalypse"

26 July 2016 6:04 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Ghostbusters" director Paul Feig is set to produce the film adaptation of Mickey Rapkin's recent Elle magazine article "Supermodel Snowpocalypse" for Paramount Pictures.

The true story tale is set in 1977 and follows a group of models including Jerry Hall and Maria Hanson, ad executives, and two aspiring model sisters.

The group traveled to Chile for a lavish fur-themed photoshoot., only for a snowstorm to hit and trap them at a mountain ski resort. The gang soon turned the place into their own drug-fueled Studio 54 with the other Brazilian and Argentinian patrons.

Stranded for a week with no working phones and the only access out of the building through a second-storey window, the American crew hatched a plan to escape back home.

Jessie Henderson will also produce the project which Feig will not direct.

Paul Feig is bringing us deep into the Supermodel Snowpocalypse

26 July 2016 3:50 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Paul Feig continues to earn the benefit of the doubt for each new project he involves himself with, considering he hasn't made a stinker from the lot of them to this point. They all turn out to be surprisingly funny, which is why I'm intrigued he has chosen to participate in Supermodel Snowpocalypse. Feig is only producing the film under his Feigco banner, and, on the surface, the title... Read More »

Supermodel Snowpocalypse: Paul Feig overseeing movie adaptation

26 July 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tony Sokol Jul 27, 2016

The 1977 story of supermodels being snowed in on the slopes of Chile is heading to the movies...

This article first appeared at Den Of Geek Us.

Paramount has picked up the rights to Supermodel Snowpocalypse, an Elle magazine article written by Mickey Rapkin and Ghostbusters and Bridesmaids director Paul Feig will oversee its transition to the big screen.

Feig won’t be directing the adaptation, just producing it under his Feigco banner with his partner Jessie Hendeson. Feig, who directed The Heat and Bridesmaids, also produced The Peanuts Movie for Fox.

Supermodel Snowpocalypse will tell the story of a group of models, including Jerry Hall and Maria Hanson, ad execs and photographers who went to a mountain ski resort in Chile for a lavish fur-themed photoshoot in 1977. The group got snowed-in by a big storm and kept warm by partying like it was, well, 1977. They dug themselves »

Newswire: Paul Feig will brave the Supermodel Snowpocalypse

26 July 2016 2:28 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

After telling the story of a team of women who overcome a supernatural threat in Ghostbusters, Paul Feig is now set to produce a film about a team of women overcoming a significantly more traditional threat in Supermodel Snowpocalypse. It may sound like a great Syfy original movie, but the project is actually based on an Elle Magazine story about a real thing that happened back in the ‘70s. As Variety tells it, a group of models, a photographer, and some advertising executives were doing a fur-based photoshoot in the mountains of Chile, but they had to retreat into a cabin when a snowstorm hit. They then made the lodge “into their own Studio 54” and proceeded to do a bunch of drugs for a few days. Eventually, some of them realized that they were all going to die in a frozen, hedonistic nightmare, so they “hatched a plan to »

‘Ghostbusters’ toy sales have ‘exceeded expectations’ at top retailers

26 July 2016 2:19 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Early on, director Paul Feig was intent on making sure there were plenty Ghostbusters toys to go around after the big Star Wars #WheresRey controversy. Turns out that was a very good business decision indeed. Variety says Mattel, who created action figures of Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Melissa McCarthy and other items from the new film,  are "reporting strong early sales for its line of toys based on the female-led Ghostbusters — from both boys and girls." They also write, "In keeping with the tagline 'Everybody wants to be a Ghostbuster,' Mattel’s retail strategy was to sell the female-led Ghostbusters action figures in the boys’ toy aisle. The sales figures at the top retailers in the country have exceeded expectations." That's interesting because earlier this year Donna Dickens realized all the weapon toys for the new film featured boys on the packaging. While the film and toys are for everyone, »

Should Sony risk a Ghostbusters sequel?

26 July 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks at the franchise potential of Ghostbusters

The second week numbers are in, and it’s what most people expected (at least it’s what I predicted on last week’s podcast). After a fairly decent (but not all that great) $46 million opening weekend, Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot dropped 54% to earn $21 million in its second week. Which, in fairness to it, held up pretty well against great openings for Star Trek Beyond and Lights Out, and the animated behemoth The Secret Life of Pets (which continues to make baffling big money).

Who is to blame for the mediocre performance? Was it all the pre-release negativity from misogynistic Twitter and Reddit users? Did the over-bearing Ghostbusters defenders put off potential other movie goers? Is America not ready for an all-female horror comedy? Or are we just sick of cash-grab reboots in general?

All are valid questions, but only »

Paul Feig Developing ‘Supermodel Snowpocalypse’ at Paramount

26 July 2016 11:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount has picked up the rights to “Supermodel Snowpocalypse,” an Elle magazine article written by Mickey Rapkin with “Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig attached to produce.

Feig will produce the adaptation with his Feigco banner partner Jessie Hendeson. Sources add Feig will not direct the pic.

The Elle article followed two sisters, the older’s photographer boyfriend, advertising executives and a group of models (including Jerry Hall and Maria Hanson) who traveled to Chile for a lavish fur-themed photoshoot.

A snow storm hit soon after the group arrived at a mountain ski resort but even though it was massive, the men and women put on a brave face, turning the place into their own Studio 54 with the other Brazilian and Argentinian patrons.

After being stranded for a week with no working phones (and the only way to exit the hotel was through second floor windows), the American crew hatched a plan to escape back to civilization. »

"Star Trek Beyond" Tops The Box-Office

25 July 2016 6:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Justin Lin-directed "Star Trek Beyond" topped the box-office within the United States this weekend with $59.6 million. It's a strong opening, but that number is down from the $75 million and $70 million openings of the two previous J.J. Abrams-directed "Star Trek" films.

Coming in at a budget of $185 million, the film also made a further $30 million from 37 global markets which, like the U.S. opening, were down by a similar 15-20% or so. The film has scored good critical reviews, and yet there's also plenty of editorials and complaints within the reviews suggesting the new film essentially retreads old formula and in the process plays it far too safe with a familiar story.

Hopefully that will change with the next film with J.J. Abrams revealing last week to EW that the storyline for the upcoming fourth film is his "favorite Star Trek story that we've had. It really is an amazing story, »
