Pre-release polling suggested it would be a close call between newcomers "Magic Mike Xxl" and "Terminator Genisys" and after one day tracking looks on target. "Magic Mike Xxl" took in $9.3 million on Wednesday while the fifth "Terminator" raked in $8.9 million. For comparison's sake, last year the Melissa McCarthy comedy "Tammy" opened to $6.2 million the Wednesday before July 4th and "Transformers: Age of Extinction," in its third day, earned $7.7 million. It's still unclear whether either new film will win the holiday frame. "Inside Out," which crossed the $200 million mark Tuesday, or "Jurassic World," the no. 1 movie of the year so far with over $514 million, could easily take the top spot. One intriguing indicator of what will occur may be the handy Cinemascore ratings. "Magic Mike" earned an A- while "Genysis" polled at a B+. Critics have also been kinder to the Channing Tatum sequel awarding it a 60 on Metacritic and a 59% on Rotten Tomatoes. »

Paul Feig's upcoming Ghostbusters movie is in the middle of filming - you may have seen the pictures of stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon on set - and the director is slowly releasing teases on Twitter. This week, he's snapped a picture of the outfits that the girls will be wearing, as well as a new proton pack. Check out the first two images here, and stay tuned for more pictures; there's a long way to go until the film's July 22, 2016, release date. »
Featuring an all-female Ghostbuster team that reads like a who’s who of current comedy, the cast includes Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. Chris Hemsworth has also been confirmed as the secretary, as played by a memorable Annie Potts in the original.
Plot details are being kept heavily under wraps, but if these new tweets are anything to go by, the suits and Proton Packs are back and better than ever. Protective goggles and Ghostbusting badges are both accounted for, meaning we should expect some serious paranormal activity.

Yesterday, director Paul Feig decided to reveal on Twitter a first look at the new Ghostbusters uniforms to be worn by his all-female cast, which includes Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Many thought the next big teased would be the ladies suited up and ready to fight the supernatural. Nope. Instead, today we get our first look at the mostly new Proton Packs these lady Ghostbusters will be slinging in what is described as a complete reimagining of the franchise.
The Proton Pack design stays pretty close to what we know and love from the original 1984 Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel Ghostbusters 2. It is a little slicker, and a bit more compact, but not a huge leap in style or design. While the costumes shown off yesterday and this new proton pack stay locked into the true Ghostbusters aesthetic, the film will be somewhat of a »

Paul Feig is hard at work shooting the Ghostbusters reboot for Sony, and though a few set photos have leaked out showcasing stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, today brings a more official reveal. The director took to Twitter recently to give us our first look at the outfits and proton packs his new Ghostbusters team will be sporting.
The images were accompanied by the tongue-in-cheek hashtags #whatyougonnawear and #whatyougonnashoot. The main vibe I’m getting from both is nostalgia – the costumes are particularly true to the look of the originals. Given that the only other alternative I was worried about involved tightening the jumpsuits for a “sexy Ghostbuster” look, it’s a bit of a relief to see that these Ghostbusters will be clad near identically to the first lineup.
The throwback vibes carry over to the new proton pack, which appears just as worn »

“Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig followed up the reveal of the all-female team’s uniforms with the first look at the proton packs they’ll be lugging around. “#Whatyougonnashoot,” Feig tweeted Tuesday along with the image of the new design, which doesn’t look all that different from the device Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson wore in the 1984 original. This time, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones will be gearing up to fight the supernatural.

Familiar IP is everything these days, it seems. Studios will (somewhat begrudgingly) continue to churn out original properties, but their bread and butter is sequels, reboots, and remakes—and you can’t blame them. The top three films of the year so far at the box office are all sequels, with Jurassic World positively rolling in the dough as it breaks record after record. Movie tickets are expensive, and audiences are more likely to spend their money on something they’re already pretty sure they’ll like rather than take a chance on something unfamiliar. Every now and then they'll take a chance, as original films like Spy and Inside Out have proven to be big hits, but even so those movies are tinged with familiarity—the Melissa McCarthy/Paul Feig duo for Spy, and the Pixar brand for Inside Out. And with Jurassic World—a sequel in a franchise »

The director revealed his take on the iconic ghostbusting weapon on Twitter.

"#whatyougonnashoot," he asked his followers.
Feig gave us a first glimpse at his new Ghostbusters costumes earlier in the week.
The supernatural comedy is currently shooting on location in the North-East of the Us.
Production launched in early June with Feig sharing a cup of ectoplasm with his 1.4 million Twitter followers.
The Ghostbusters reboot will be released on July 22, 2016. »
Following his tweet last night with our first look at the suits they’ll be wearing, we’ve now got our first look at the Proton Packs the girls will be using in Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters remake.
“Wiig and McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. (Like the original, the story takes place in New York City, even though it’s being shot in Boston.) Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan »

Social media has not only changed the way we live our daily lives, it’s also heavily impacted movie marketing. Sometimes it can be grating, like forcing contrived hashtags down people’s throats. But sometimes it can be smart, like the way filmmakers such as Zack Snyder and Bryan Singer tease images and first-looks from their highly anticipated upcoming films via their Twitter and Instagram handles. Director Paul Feig looks to be going a similar route with his Ghostbusters reboot, and after sharing an image of the new costumes last night, he’s now revealed a close-up look at the film’s iteration of the proton pack. The proton pack is, of course, the device that allows for all the ghost-busting in the first place, as it captures spirits and drives them into ghost traps. Much like the reboot’s costumes, this new proton pack is very similar to the original. »

The female-version of "Ghostbusters" is currently shooting in New York City with Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, and Leslie Jones starring as the new team. And now, we have a look at the costumes they'll be wearing. Check out the photo below. In the movie, Wiig and McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book, stating that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia University. Everything is going well until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other ghostbusters, and gets revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world. The new movie is directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and is set to hit theaters on July 22nd, 2016. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
A ghostbuster needs something to bust ghosts with, right? That's where the all-important proton pack comes in, and director Paul Feig shared a first look photo at the essential tool in his "Ghostbusters" reboot.
- Paul Feig (@paulfeig) June 30, 2015 Like the uniforms, the pack is very similar to the original, with a few little updates. It looks dirty and worn, which indicates heavy use -- ghostbusting is not a dainty business!
In the reboot, Wiig and McCarthy are authors who write a book claiming ghosts are real. They're laughed out of academia, until ghosts actually do invade Manhattan. So, who's the world gonna call? The two women, who team up with McKinnon and Jones to save the world. »

Production continues on the, ahem, unanimously popular new Ghostbusters movie, with director Paul Feig introducing Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Katie McKinnon and Leslie Jones as the new lead quartet. Feig has been shooting the film in and around New York City for the past couple of weeks, where the bulk of the film's production takes place (appropriately enough, for a Ghostbusters movie).
Feig is also the latest in a line of directors who's revealing information about his movie via his Twitter account. This time, he's unveiled the costumes that the new Ghostbusters will be wearing in the movie. Note that they've reverted back to the original Ghostbusters logo on their arm...

Paul Feig, one of the contemporary directors who seems to control the images that get out there, has dropped a real deal tease for his upcoming Ghostbusters: new coveralls. A fashion enthusiast himself, it’s not surprising Feig would debut the fresh gear, outfitted with new stripes, but the classic logo. Ghostbusters, starring Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and…

The Fourth of July weekend looks to be filled with full multiplexes as Magic Mike Xxl and Terminator Genisys open tomorrow (Weds, 7/1), joining Jurassic World, Inside Out and Ted 2 in a battle royale for eyeballs and bottoms. Available screens are something to consider as Warner Bros.' Mike will be in a reported 3,355 venues and Paramount's Genisys in 3,758. Pundits are plugging for both films to earn $50M for the five-day frame. That puts Mike earning around the $39.1M its predecessor, the original Magic Mike, made during its June 29 - July 1, 2012 opening. It would also speculate that Genisys debuts at around the same interest level that Terminator Salvation did when it opened with $42.6M in 2009. Of course, neither Salvation, nor the third installment in the series, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, which made $44M its three-day July 4th weekend in 2003, ended up being embraced by fans as part of the canon. »

The social push for spreading on-set Ghostbusters treats has begun, and it's picking up steam: Director Paul Feig tweeted tweaked versions of the iconic jumpsuits early Monday evening. "What you gonna wear," he wrote in hashtag form, above a pic of the four protagonists' — to be played by Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones — uniforms. They look similar to the originals, maybe just a touch darker. The biggest difference is the addition of the orange stripes, which will be great for when the 'Busters go running or walking at night, as they will now be very visible. Solid. Fashionable. Maybe a little too practical. Maybe not. The lapels are unfortunately covering the character name tags, but if you're curious about what those will likely be, head here.As a whole, the jumpsuits, boots, classic logo, and goggles, are an image of divine nostalgia. Here's the pic »
