Why are the blockbusters this summer not up to snuff?

I’m hardly the first one to mention it, but it’s clear to me that the summer blockbusters this year have been, well…lacking. That might be being kind too. It feels like one of the worst slates ever, at least the most disappointing. Almost every single week, something comes out that[...]

‘Ghostbusters’ is an excellent re-invention of the classic franchise

It was always going to be a tough task to reboot the Ghostbusters as an entirely new franchise. Basically, you had to please fans of the original while opening it up to a whole next generation of potential audience members. This week, the product of that experiment opens in a[...]

“Cafe Society”, “Captain Fantastic”, and “Ghostbusters”: Films to see in July

Happy Fourth of July ladies and gentlemen! It sounds odd in my head though, if I’m being honest. Does it actually feel like it’s already July folks? Just yesterday, I felt like the summer movie season was only beginning, but now we’re knee deep in it. So far, it hasn’t[...]

Bill Murray: His best performances to date

Few actors in Hollywood are quite as uniquely beloved as Bill Murray is. It’s almost beyond explanation, but he’s considered the movie industry’s wacky uncle in a way. With the release this weekend of his newest film Rock the Kasbah (which I have to admit, I have yet to see),[...]

Ivan Reitman on Ashton Kutcher, Natalie Portman and the sexy, funny “No Strings Attached” – EXCLUSIVE

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Judd Apatow and Kevin Smith may be carrying the baton for coarse, observational, sex-soaked comedy these days, but it was passed to them by Ivan Reitman. And he wants it back. Seriously, go back and watch Reitman’s early work, from “Cannibal Girls,” “Stripes” and “Meatballs,” and you’ll[...]

“Avatar,” “Ghostbusters” sequel news from Sigourney Weaver

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: It’s impressive how many potential sequels on fanboy radars revolve around Sigourney Weaver. Not that Weaver isn’t a major star. She is, and has been for decades. But several franchises Weaver has been involved in – both recently and through the years – are hoping to move[...]

“Ghostbusters 3” to begin shooting next summer?

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Who you gonna call? Well, you might be able to dial up the Ghostbusters next summer.
