Melissa McCarthy on Ghostbusters Reboot Haters: "I Just Hope They Find a Friend"

14 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ever since it was announced that Paul Feig (The Heat, Bridesmaids) would be rebooting Ghostbusters with an all-female cast, the film has faced wave after wave of backlash. And every time a new photo or trailer comes out, the Internet is very vocal about how they don't want to see the classic 1984 film tarnished. Don't believe us? Just go to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn or literally anywhere on the Internet and search "Ghostbusters reboot." In a new interview with The Guardian, one of the stars of the film, Melissa McCarthy, has a message for the critics who are already bashing the film before stepping foot into a theater.

Is Sony Now Looking For “Good Press” Fueled By Negative ‘Ghostbusters’ Reactions?

27 May 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

If you have any connection to the Internet (and you do), and don’t have positive feelings for the upcoming Ghostbusters film, Sony hears you, but their response to your response to trailers is a little confusing.

It isn’t just that people from the studio are somewhat dismissive of the negative reaction –

“What tends to happen with a beloved property is the fanboy or the fangirl shows up and says, ‘How dare you remake this?’ ” says Sony domestic marketing president Dwight Caines.

– and it isn’t simply the fairly ridiculous, PC-armor-inspired response by director Paul Feig, who suggested that perhaps those who don’t like the trailers are sexist. (It isn’t so much that he said it actually, but a lot of fans said, and then he said, “uhhh… well, yeah.” — Ok, or something like that.)

No, what’s odd is the recent push of articles, like the »

Summer Preview — Movies Edition!

26 May 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

It’s going to be a full summer so to cut the wheat from the chaff, I’ve made a list of the most promising flicks! So pop some corn, gather round, and dim the lights!

June 10 Warcraft

The attention to detail looks jaw dropping in Duncan Jones’ (Source Code, Moon) adaptation of the beloved game series. I’m thinking some of these battles will leave us as breathless as those in Middle-Earth did!

The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist

If The Conjuring wasn’t terrifying enough, it was followed up by the underrated and unnerving Annabelle. Well, now the original Ghostbusters, Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) are back with another spooky thrill ride, this time in Jolly Olde London with one of the most famous true-life ghost stories ever. Just to keep us on our toes on this side of the pond, they also visit »

A few thoughts on the vilification of Paul Feig

23 May 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

Hate the idea of a new Ghostbusters film? That's fair enough. Attacking another human being? It might be time to draw the line...

I believe it to be Empire magazine that works on an editorial policy of treating the approach to every movie as if it’s Christmas Eve. That, until you’ve seen the final cut of something, go in with optimism, and a wish for something to be good, be it Big Momma’s House 3 or Captain America: Civil War. Hate must be saved until you've seen the final cut of a film.

I like that ethos a lot. I think in an era when great films can have terrible trailers, and terrible films can have great trailers, that reserving judgement for a movie until the whole thing has been seen is something to cherish.

So then: you don’t need me to tell »

Peekaboo! The Movies Of 2016 At Halftime

22 May 2016 9:57 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Nearing the halfway mark of the movie year and teetering, as we all are, on the edge of another summer movie abyss which holds only the thinnest promise of providing strong reason to tread amongst the mall-igentsia in search of air-conditioned escape, I find myself feeling far less regret than usual over the movies I’ve missed so far in 2016. Usually by this point I’m bemoaning having had to sideline 20 or 30 interesting pictures because I couldn’t get out to a theater. This year I’ve whiffed on about the same number of movies of interest, but only nine or 10 of those misses have anything like real regret attached to them. It does actively annoy me that I will have to catch up with the likes of Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Cemetery of Splendor, the foodie doc City of Gold, Jeff NicholsMidnight Special, Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker in Born to Be Blue, »

Director Paul Feig Defends Ghostbusters in latest Famous Monsters Exclusive

18 May 2016 5:24 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

“People are always going to react the way they react, and that’s the joy and terribleness of the Internet.” — Paul Feig to Famous Monsters magazine

The all-new Ghostbusters are powering up their proton packs for a big-screen summer release on July 15. While many franchise fans are excited for the female-driven reset of the beloved ’80s comedy starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, a very vocal faction of the Internet has expressed its distaste for the reboot concept and its first teaser trailer. 

At Famous Monsters of Filmland, we always give any film the benefit of the doubt before watching it, and wanted to give accomplished Ghostbusters director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy) an opportunity to not only share his creative inspirations for approaching the new film — along with sharing his comedy-casting criteria — but to address those adamantly opposed to his film, despite not having even seen the finished product. »

Ike Barinholtz has joined Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn in Fox’s untitled mother-daughter comedy.

Fox announced in October that it had scheduled the project, unofficially known as “Mother/Daughter,” for a Mother’s Day weekend release on May 12, 2017.

Schumer set up the project in May. Jonathan Levine (“50/50”) is directing from a script by Katie Dippold (“The Heat”), which is inspired by her relationship with her mother.

Chernin Entertainment and Feigco Entertainment are producing. Dippold also serves as executive producer.

Schumer and Kim Caramele are also executive producers and provided additional script work. Daria Cercek is overseeing the project for Fox.

Variety reported last month that British actor Tom Bateman has joined the cast.

10 of the Best Commencement Speeches of 2016 - From President Obama to Oprah

16 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Your commencement speech can be either a high-point of the college graduation experience or the low-point in an interminable slog of funny hats and uncomfortable chairs. But if your college is worth at least a fraction of the inflated tuition you've been throwing into their bottomless maw for the last chunk of your life, then they hired a pretty good commencement speaker. And let's face it, you could do a lot worse than hearing Oprah's words of graduation advice. Let's take a look at some of the best ones from this year.

'Rock That Body' Is Shaping Up to Be the Next 'Bridesmaids'

2 May 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Ever since Bridesmaids turned into a massive hit back in 2011, it told Hollywood two things: 1. Audiences are starved for female-driven movies, and 2. Make more filthy R-rated films starring all women. In the years since we've seen other attempts (some good, some not so much) at recreating the magic of Bridesmaids, and its director Paul Feig has gone on to helm excellent female-driven comedies like The Heat and Spy (with his all-female Ghostbusters reboot due out in July), and while this summer's Bad Moms will throw its R-rated jokes on the table with its Bridesmaids-meets-Mean Girls vibe, a new film starring Scarlett Johansson may be the closest we've come to recapturing that bridal party mayhem on the big screen. It's called Rock That Body, and...

Box Office: 5 Reasons Why Melissa McCarthy Defeated the Dark Knight

10 April 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Forget Wonder Woman or "Zootopia's" Officer Judy Hopps. The most commanding female at the box office this weekend was Melissa McCarthy's hard-charging tycoon Michelle Darnell.

The battle this weekend was "Batman v Superman" vs. "The Boss," and while the superhero saga was widely expected to threepeat at No.1 on the box office chart, it ended up being a neck-and-neck race. On Sunday, it looked like "The Boss" would be the victor, claiming an estimated $23.5 million and edging out "BvS" by just $45,000.

For "Boss" to come out ahead of "BvS" and two new competitors ("Demolition" and "Hardcore Henry") is no small feat, especially considering how many obstacles it had to overcome. "The Boss" became the fifth McCarthy starring vehicle in a row to open above $21.5 million -- despite really bad reviews and a C+ CinemaScore. This weekend's results seem to show that, no matter what hurdles McCarthy has to leap, »

Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone to reteam for Life of the Party

9 April 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress Melissa McCarthy and her husband, director Ben Falcone, will be teaming up once again for New Line’s upcoming comedy Life of the Party. Falcone is set to direct the film and McCarthy has signed on to star, making this the pair’s third collaboration of that sort. The duo penned the script for the film and are both set to produce as well. 

Life of the Party is described by the outlet as being “akin in tone to the Rodney Dangerfield hit Back to School and pitched as a broad comedy playing on McCarthy’s strengths.” Aside from that, plot details are currently unknown.

Falcone first directed McCarthy in 2014’s Tammy, a film that, while panned by critics, turned a tidy profit at the box office, taking in over $100 million on a $20 million budget. It looks like the pair’s most recent effort, »
