Ghostbusters 3 Teaser

Yesterday came the surprise announcement that Jason Reitman, the Oscar nominated director behind Juno and Up in the Air and the son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, will be directing a sequel to those beloved original flicks. The long-awaited Ghostbusters 3…at least until they announce an official title. Even more surprising was that Jason had been developing the sequel in secret, co-writing the screenplay with Monster House director Gil Kenan, and that it would actually begin filming in just a few months.

Now, to keep building on that, a teaser video for Ghostbusters 3 has been released. It’s not much, as you would expect from a movie that hasn’t begun filming yet, but it’s definitely a teaser made to strike some nostalgia chords with fans. You can check it out below.

Ghostbusters

Another new Ghostbusters movie is on the way.

But unlike the 2016 reboot starring Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kristen Wiig, which told its own story and was not connected to the 1984 original and its 1989 sequel, this latest entry in the franchise will be a sequel set in the same universe as the originals which continues that story. So, basically the Ghostbusters 3 fans have wanted for so many years.

It’s also going to be directed by someone with a strong connection to the series, Jason Reitman, whose father Ivan Reitman directed the first two films.

MTV
Air date: Tuesday, July 19, 2016, 10pm

Last week, Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) continued her pathway towards becoming horror’s all time dumbest final girl, as she again ignored every natural instinct and went with sketchy Eli (Sean Grandillo) to “have some fun” since she’s mad at her boyfriend and his brother, Kieran (Amadeus Serafini). That’s right, the survivor of a serial killer, who is again being chased by another masked killer, while suffering from PTSD, takes off with the weird new kid to be alone in an abandoned house. The house, it turns out, isn’t fully abandoned as there are dead/dying bodies in the bathtub. One is Seth Branson (Billy Campo), Brooke’s former lover and potential suspect. Bad news for him, the house goes up in flames right after Eli puts the moves to Emma. Emma’s teacher Ms. Lang (Austin Highsmith), another potential suspect was also left for dead by the killer, in an attack geared to set up Brooke (Carlson Young). In other news, Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus) rescues Noah (John Karna) from a horror death sentence, by interrupting him and Zoe (Kiana Lede) in flagrante delicto.

Spoilers for this week’s episode of Scream.

Five Nights At Freddy's

A director has been chosen to make a live-action movie based on the popular horror game Five Night’s At Freddy’s. The movie is set up at Warner Brothers, who have hired Gil Kenan to call the shots. Kenan has a trio of credits to his name so far, the 2006 animated movie Monster House, 2008’s City of Ember, and the recent remake of Poltergeist.

The game is an indie point-and-click survival horror that sees players trying to survive the night at a Chuck E. Cheese’s type restaurant they work at called Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, where the animatronic animals come to life at night and try to kill you.

Continue below for more and to check out a video of what the game looks like.

‘Poltergeist’ Reboot First Look: New Clown Even Scarier

Poltergeist Scary Clown

“They’re Heeere.” Or is it, “They’re baaaack”? Or… “They’re Heeeere…again”?

Whichever way you say it, it’s been over 32 years since Tobe Hooper and Steven Spielberg ruined the childhoods of millions with Poltergeist. Now, horror-philes like myself are eagerly awaiting the Gil Kenan reboot. If you’re bothered by what may seem like another in a long line of horror remakes, sequels, and remake-quels, consider first that Kenan (director of Monster House) was terrified by the original as a kid and the film is produced by horror-icon Sam Raimi.

The first look of the reboot has been revealed in a set of photos released by USA Today, which you can see here below.

The story of invisible angry spirits kidnapping a family’s small daughter, Carol Anne, was notable for several bone-chilling moments, including the crawling steak, the bathroom face-ripping scene, and of course… THAT DAMN CLOWN DOLL! Fresh off Killer Clown, John Wayne Gacy’s killing spree, and a pint-sized clown masked Michael Myers (in 1978’s Halloween), clowns became even more terrifying in the late 70s and early 80s.

Poltergeist Image

We’ve been hearing about a remake of the 1982 Tobe Hooper-directed and Steven Spielberg-produced horror classic Poltergeist for quite some time now, but, unlike a bunch of other MGM remakes, haven’t yet seen it go into production.

The remake is being produced by The Evil Dead director Sam Raimi (who’s also a producer on the remake of his own movie, Evil Dead), and now MGM has found their director.

Gil Kenan, who’s best known for directing the dark computer animated performance capture feature Monster House, has been chosen to helm the Poltergeist remake.

Movie Review: City of Ember

BAADASSSSS!   |

City of Ember
Directed by Gil Kenan
Starring Saoirse Ronan, Harry Treadaway, Bill Murray, Toby Jones, Tim Robbins, Martin Landau
Rated PG
Release date: October 10, 2008

Fantasy films are a tough business these days. Unless your movie features a character named Frodo Baggins or Harry Potter, it’s doomed to go straight from a brief theatrical run to having to find any sign of shelf life on DVD. But damn if the major studios don’t persist, opening their checkbooks to hire the best cinematic artisans money can buy in the hopes that whatever modestly successful children’s book they purchase the rights to will break the curse and rake in the dough at the box office. As a result us moviegoers have had to endure the likes of Eragon, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Seeker: The Dark is Rising, and The Spiderwick Chronicles. Some of these movies were good in their own way, but they only proved to demonstrate that all of the millions of dollars in big-name stars and expensive visual effects can’t match the movies we create instantly in our mind when we lose ourselves in the pages of a good book.

But they do try, and as I mentioned before every once in a while a popular fantasy book series such as J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy and J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter not only break through to become critically and financially successful, but also transcend the typical temporary blockbuster popularity and become pop culture touchstones. I don’t see that happening for City of Ember, the latest film from Monster House director Gil Kenan, but it is a much stronger film than Hollywood has produced for the youth market this year and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an intelligent and visually sumptuous fantasy with a good story. But that’s not to say the movie is without its share of problems.
