‘Ghostbusters’ Producer Doesn’t Think Backlash To Reboot Is About Sexism

18 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ghostbusters” producer Ivan Reitman has his own take on the backlash over the reboot of the 1984 comedy classic.

“I think there’s way too much talk about gender [when it comes to this film],” Reitman told Mashable. “I think that many of the people who were complaining were actually lovers of the [original] movie, not haters of women.” He also faults the movie’s original trailer for not making it clear that the new film is a reboot, not a remake, of the original. At the same time, he said it’s unfair to judge the entire film based on a 90-second trailer.

“I’ve certainly had my experience with things that did not work,” he told Mashable. “This movie works, [but] no one’s really seen it.”

Judd Apatow has a slightly different take on the situation, calling commenters who have criticized it probably the same people who are going to vote for Donald Trump.

Ivan Reitman says the hate for Ghostbusters reboot isn’t sexist

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re just a couple of weeks away from strange things happening in your neighbourhood with Paul Feig’s reboot of Ghostbusters hitting cinema screens, and it’s not been without its controversy.

There have been several rumours of problems between Sony and the director (with suggestions the studio want to sweep the movie under the rug), and even reports that the cast hated the film while working on it. However the biggest stories have been the en-mass outcry that the ‘hate’ for the movie is nothing more than sexism and misogyny. Feig’s friend Judd Apatow recently compared the Ghostbusters hate to the support for Donald Trump as American president.

But the movie’s producer – and the original movie’s director – Ivan Reitman thinks otherwise.

“I think there’s way too much talk about gender” he tells Mashable. “I think that many of the people who were complaining were actually lovers of the [original] movie, »

The Academy has invited 683 new members to join their ranks

30 June 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday afternoon, the ranks of Oscar voters grew substantially, with some welcome diversity added in for good measure. Yes, the Academy sent out invitations for new membership about 24 hours ago, with 683 names getting the coveted tap on the proverbial shoulder. Again, what made it so interesting to note is that AMPAS seemed to actively seek out women, minorities, and younger artists, hoping to make the demographics of the Academy slightly less centered on older white males. It won’t suddenly change the makeup of the Oscar nominations or upend how the Academy Awards go down next year, but it’s a slow step in the right direction, and that’s worth applauding for sure. As you can see below, in addition to basically all of last year’s Oscar winners, the new members are a diverse slate. Among the names you’ll see in the acting branch now are John Boyega, »

Leslie Jones says designers didn't want to dress her for 'Ghostbusters' premiere

29 June 2016 1:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Designers are normally falling over themselves to send actors fashions to wear on high-profile red carpets. So why did Leslie Jones just have to put them all on blast? They apparently decided her walk down the carpet for the Ghostbusters premiere wasn't worth their time or fabric. While it's true the women of Ghostbusters know how to get down and dirty, they can be equally classy and fabulous when they want to. Take for example this recent cover series for Elle. But it seems Jones is having some difficulty finding something to wear for the Ghostbusters premiere. She tweeted, "It's so funny how there are no designers wanting to help me with a premiere dress for movie. Hmmm that will change and I remember everything It's so funny how there are no designers wanting to help me with a premiere dress for movie. Hmmm that will change and I remember »

Listen to the official Japanese non-Fall Out Boy theme song for Ghostbusters reboot

29 June 2016 3:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony released the official theme song for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliot last week, and it didn’t go down all that well. The song – like the trailers – was met with a lot of negativity, even by those who have supported the film online.

Well the official Japanese theme song has landed online, and it’s a lot closer to the Ray Parker Jr. original. So close in fact that, well, it’s the same song but in Japanese. It’s performed by Japanese comedians Tomochika, Oniyakko Tsubaki, Naomi Watanabe and Shizuyo Yamasaki decked out in Ghostbusters gear doing wacky things.

Check out the video below:

Will Ghostbusters Be a Bigger Box Office Hit Than Expected?

24 June 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Some fans absolutely loathe the idea of the new Ghostbusters reboot, and for a plethora of both honest and dubious reasons. They've been very vocal and loud about it, too. So much so, many believe that this all-female version of the classic horror comedy will be one of summer's biggest bombs. But if new tracking data turns out to be true, that will be very far from the case. In all actuality, Sony Pictures is looking at a blockbuster hit in terms of a fresh franchise restarter. Especially for a series that has laid dominant for the past four decades.

Comedy director and sometimes actor Paul Feig is at the helm of this new Ghostbusters, which has been met with criticism every inch of the way. From the cast, which features mostly SNL alum, to the trailers, to the new theme song released yesterday, some fans are ready to take »

Be Afraid: The Early Numbers For 'Ghostbusters' Opening Weekend Are In!

24 June 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

When it comes to blockbuster films from major studios, there's a science to projecting their opening weekends. And that science has gotten pretty darn good over the years. Based on pre-sales, buzz on sites like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb, trailer hits, and all kinds of other factors, outlets like The Hollywood Reporter can create a likely range where a film is going to end up. The wizards at THR have worked their magic on Paul Feig's upcoming reboot of Ghostbusters.

All eyes are on Ghostbusters these days, since the production has been plagued with a kind of negative buzz that is truly noteworthy. There have been remakes and reboots of beloved properties before that have gotten negative responses from fans at their inception, but nothing quite like Ghostbusters. For a multitude of reasons- some understandable, some questionable- people have loved to hate this project.

The response has led to standoffish remarks from Feig, »

We're still three weeks away from the release of Ghostbusters, but the first tracking numbers are in, and THR is reporting that the Paul Feig-directed reboot is looking at a domestic opening weekend in the range of $40 to $50 million.

‘Keeping Up With The Joneses’ Trailer: Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot Have A Killer Secret

22 June 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There are few better things than watching Jon Hamm let loose on the big screen, especially after so many years of internal brooding as the one and only Don Draper on AMC’s “Mad Men,” which means everyone should keep an eye out for “Keeping Up With The Joneses.” Directed by Greg Mottola of “Superbad” fame, “Joneses” centers around two suburban couples — one played by Isla Fisher and Zach Galifianakas, the other by Hamm and Gal Gadot — who get in way over their heads when it is revealed that the latter are actually spies.

The official synopsis from 20th Century Fox reads: “An ordinary suburban couple (Galifianakis, Isla Fisher) finds it’s not easy keeping up with the Joneses (Hamm, Gadot) – their impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated new neighbors – especially when they discover that Mr. and Mrs. “Jones” are covert operatives. »

Ghostbusters' Paul Feig: 'Everything in Hollywood Is a Cash Grab'

21 June 2016 4:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Paul Feig and his Ghostbusters cast of Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, and Melissa McCarthy have been the target of some very weird comments. But they'd like everyone to know childhoods won't be ruined, Hollywood exists to make money, and Ghostbusters is not a battleground for social ideas. Really. The New York Times did a feature on the new cast and creator of the Ghostbusters and were of course asked about the controversy surrounding the film once again. They reiterated that no childhoods could actually be ruined by the film but were asked directly if they thought there were indeed people who simply don't like a film with a predominantly female cast. "It’s a relatively new concept. And I think it started in earnest with Bridesmaids and has been growing since then," said McKinnon. "I remember when Baby Mama came out, I was like: [horrified] 'No one will see this! »

New Ghostbusters Animated TV Show Is Coming in 2018

20 June 2016 6:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Depending on your perspective, it is either a very good or a very bad time to be a Ghostbusters fan. The all-female reboot which is directed by Paul Feig is dropping next month and, despite your feelings about that specifically, it does mean there is a lot of other Ghostbusters goodness on the way. To that point, today, Sony Animation confirmed that they have a new animated series based on the movie coming in 2018.

Sony announced in a press release today that they are creating a new Ghostbusters animated series that takes place in the future. The show, which will be called Ghostbusters: Ecto Force, is an extension of what Sony has planned on the film side of things, which Sony has officially dubbed the "Ghostbusters Cinematic Universe." Here is how Sony described the new series in their press release.
