The gang is back together again to pass the torch again to the next generation in Jason Reitman's Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Despite the mixed response of the all-female 2016 Paul Feig-directed soft-reboot, the 2020 film serves as a true sequel to the Ghostbusters franchise. Bill Murray, who played Dr. Peter Venkman since the 1984 original Ghostbusters, […]
Zombieland: Double Tap almost had a different post-credit ending if things went as planned. The theatrical post-credit scene bore little to do with the overall plot of the film.

Looks like Bill Murray's 1981 film Stripes will be getting that special "CBS comedy touch," as word has come down that The Eye Network is developing a series based on the military comedy. Original film director Ivan Reitman is expected to direct and executive produce via his Montecito Picture Company. The Whitest Kids U'Know's Trevor Moore, […]
While the debate over the merits of the upcoming Ghostbusters remake continues, one voice has emerged offering a positive opinion of the new film: co-creator Dan Aykroyd.

I find it somewhat bittersweet, with bitter outweighing the sweet, to note that Groundhog Day is on sale right now.
Goodbye, Mr. Ramis, and thank you.
Here's the latest in a very long, ongoing series in which Dan Aykroyd sincerely updates us on the progress of Ghostbusters 3 but we can't help doubting him.
