The Happytime Murders

We’ve been hearing about it for about a decade, and now a trailer has finally been released for The Happytime Murders, an R-rated puppet movie from the The Jim Henson Company.

The movie follows a human (played Melissa McCarthy) and a puppet detective team who are trying to solve the mysterious murders of the former cast of a popular old puppet TV show.

Continue below to read more about The Happytime Murders and check out the very not safe for work (or children) red band trailer.

Life Of The Party

Melissa McCarthy is certainly not afraid to put herself out there. Especially when it comes to her comedies that her director husband Ben Falcone helms.

But in Life of the Party, we get to see something more grounded and refreshing, a newly divorced mother who makes a comeback by joining her daughter (Molly Gordon) in college. Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for the film, and you can check it out below.

Dan Aykroyd Blames Director Paul Feig For ‘Ghostbusters’ Costly Reboot

Ghostbusters Stars Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon

Last year, a new all-female reboot of Ghostbusters hit theaters. Though it grossed $229 million worldwide at the box office, that was off of a $144 million production budget. So adding the millions that was put into the marketing campaign, the film was barely a mild success. Thus, there will probably be no sequel. The film was fine, and with the way it ended, there was plenty of stories left to tell. But it all comes down to money, and if there isn’t any, then it isn’t worth it for the studio to take such a risk.

Now one of the Ghostbusters alum believes he knows why the reboot didn’t work. According to Dan Aykroyd, it was director Paul Feig. More on the story, below.

Ghostbusters 2016

It has been an uphill battle for the Sony marketing team ever since the first trailer for the Ghostbusters reboot came out. But when the first box office numbers came out, studio execs were quick to hail the film as a success and said that there would be a sequel without actually confirming that there would be one.

Now there is a sense that they may have jumped the gun a bit as a new report says Sony is possibly going to lose up to $70 million on the movie. More on the story below.

Movie Review: ‘Ghostbusters’ (2016)

Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters
Director: Paul Feig
Screenwriter: Paul Feig and Katie Dippold
Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth, Neil Casey
Distributor: Sony Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 116 minutes
Release Date: July 15, 2016

It’s easy to see why a reboot of a film like Ghostbusters could be met with such resistance. But that resistance has to come from the right place, otherwise it will sound like white noise. Now that we live in such a progressive period of time, we are more likely to see changes that would fuel such a resistance, and it’s no surprise that we are seeing that in Paul Feig‘s reboot, Ghostbusters.

The 1984 original film is such a classic film for many of us who have either lived during that time or have watched it on home video and learned of its existence through the two animated series. There is also the 1989 sequel, as well as board games, comic books, and video games, all of it based on the success of the franchise. Until now, there really hasn’t been any changes to the franchise, and as such there will be those who will probably have a strong attachment to the two films they are very familiar with. Which brings me back to the idea of resistance. No matter how you spin it, no matter how great it is, no matter how funny, there will be those who will not welcome this film with open arms. And that is the wrong way to approach it. The new Ghostbusters film, while flawed, is funny — very funny. It is one of those rare reboot comedies that’s sharp and clever, and isn’t afraid to make fun of itself or acknowledge some of those critics who may have been vocal about not wanting to see the film since it was first announced. The full review of 2016’s Ghostbusters is here below.

‘Ghostbusters’ Might Not Open In China

Ghostbusters

International box office numbers can be huge, but the one market that can have the biggest impact is China. Films like Warcraft and Pacific Rim can bomb in America but find huge success in China and earn enough box office revenue to give studios the confidence to greenlight a sequel. With Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon hitting American theaters this weekend, it only makes sense that China also gets a piece of that pie.

However, there is word that the film might not even make it there, ultimately hurting its worldwide box office gross. More on the story below.

‘Ghostbusters’ Trailer: Don’t Piss Off The Ghost

Ghostbusters Stars Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon

The Ghostbusters reboot has been met with an inevitable catch 22, with an outcry of fans criticizing the film either mimicking the original too much or being too different from the original because of the contemporary tone. There doesn’t seem to be any way that the film can win.

Despite that, Sony will move forward with the new reboot directed by Paul Feig. The reboot stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as the new team who will save their city from what McCarthy’s character describes as “The Apocalypse.” While we have all seen something like that before, we haven’t really seen it through the perspective of four very funny leading female comedians. And hopefully that will dispel any doubts or worries. Check out the new trailer for Ghostbusters below.
