Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Trailer

11 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT

A few weeks back we told you about Sony's intention to give a fully restored version of Ghostbusters a limited theatrical run to celebrate its 30th anniversary.  Now they have released a trailer for this upcoming event, and while there is nothing "new" in the trailer it looks fantastic (unlike the first Ghostbusters Blu-ray release a few years ago).

Following the one week run, on September 16th, a new collector’s edition Blu-ray set of the 1st and 2nd movie will go sale.  Both films are new 4k transfers, so they will look better than you have likely ever seen them.  And of course there will be special features:

Ghostbusters Blu-ray Special Features:

- New! Who You Gonna Call: A Ghostbusters Retrospective - Roundtable Discussion with Director Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd (Part 1)

- New! Poster Art Gallery – Gallery 1988 artwork

- New! “Ghostbusters” Music Video – Ray Parker, Jr.

9 July 2014 2:02 PM, PDT

A bit of Intriguing news regarding HBO’s True Detective coming out of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. During an interview with Legendary director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, French Connection) The Playlist asked him if he would consider directing any episodes of the upcoming season.  Check out his response:

“I am considering it. I like this writer [Nic Pizzolatto] very much. I’ve met him, and he’s the real deal as far as I’m concerned. Now, all the new seasons are different so I’m not committed—this new season has nothing to do with the last one. Except for him and his sensibility, which I think is extraordinary.”

"I'm… I can't say much more at this time. But I'm a fan of his writing, even though this will not be a continuation of what was done before with McConaughey  and Woody Harrelson. So what you can say is »

According to The Tracking Board, the long gestating Us adaptation of the popular Japanese manga Death Note may be getting new director.   Shane Black (Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, Iron Man 3) had been attached to direct for the last couple years, but now that he is working on the Predator reboot sequel it appears he has had to drop out. They report that Gus Van Sant (Psycho, Good Will Hunting) has been tapped to take over.

When Rise of the Planet of the Apes came out in the summer of 2011 it took many people by surprise.  Not only was it a critical success it was a commercial one as well, taking in over $300 million.  The success at the box office all but assured that there would be another entry in this rebooted franchise. 

Well, this Friday we get that sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. And if you are one to believe early buzz, this film is even better than the last.
