It's a sad time to be a Ghostbusters fan. Bill Murray refuses to take an hour out of his time to read a script. Ernie Hudson is still being disrespected. Slimer's in the market for lubricant. And now? The famed firehouse used in the movie is closing its doors thanks to budget cuts brought on by a shit economy.
It's funny how we can see everything Ghostbusters fired out in rapid fire succession, except of course for the third film. We've got your first look at Mattel's new toy line along with a peek at the Kotobukiya PVC figure!
Well, it's a new week and you know what that means, right? You guessed it! More Ghostbusters 3 ridiculousness! This time once again Bill Murray is being fingered as the problem child. I mean why not, right? You have to blame somebody! Round and round we continue to go.
And the merry-go-round known as Ghostbusters 3 news keeps on spinning into 2011. This latest bit of non-news comes courtesy of director Ivan Reitman, who now insists that all previous bits of news have been wrong. Le sigh.
And what week would be complete without more Ghostbusters 3 non-news? Well, at the very least this time it's coming from someone that we haven't heard from sixty times before, the fourth wheel in this not-so-well oiled machine, Ernie Hudson!
Yep. You knew it was bound to happen.
It just never stops. Every couple of weeks, sometimes even more frequently than that, more dirt is dished about the supposedly upcoming Ghostbusters 3. We don't know about you guys, but we feel like we've been on this merry-go-round way too long.
While Ghostbusters fans wait patiently ... ever so patiently ... for something ... anything ... concrete to come out of the ridiculously long fiasco that is the road to Ghostbusters 3, the guys over at Funny or Die! have released a video detailing the side of spirit warfare that we normally don't see.
When IDW Publishing first starting teasing its new Infestation series, we weren't sure how horror-centric it was going to be. Now, thanks to an announcement today out of the 2010 New York Comic Con, we know it's going to be very much in our genre as it entails, per the press release, "zombies, zombies, and more zombies."
Who needs all of the "he said, she said" headaches circling Ghostbusters 3? It's as if everyone involved forgot how much fun the movie and the experience was! Well ... everyone but us fans and comedy troupe Improv Everywhere.
You know, in retrospect, if Katie and Micah had had some tiny plastic Ghostbusters figures with them, they might have stood a better chance against that nasty demon who was haunting them literally to death in the box office smash Paranormal Activity. At the very least Venkmen. He had moxie!
We've got some more Ghostbusters 3 news to kick off your work week. This time it's from actor Bill Murray, who addresses the major spoiler actress Sigourney Weaver let fly while promoting her little movie that no one saw called Avatar.
Art Asylum has released the details on another Ghostbusters Minimates collection, and this one rounds out their Toys R Us Villains Series 3.
The top-selling Ghostbusters Minimate line continues with this latest 4-pack of Ghostbusters, associates, and menaces. This set includes the marshmallow-covered Gooey Egon and Gooey Winston from the original film as well as the sequel's Janine Melnitz and EPA lawyer Walter Peck.
Who you gonna call? The Ghostbusters are back in Ghostbusters: The Video Game for the PSP, featuring the voices and in-game likenesses of Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, and Ernie Hudson in an original story penned by the writers of the original films, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis.
