  2. My Heart: Leslie Jones Tweets Photo of New Ghostbusters!

    I'm proton-packed to bursting!

    During this weekend's Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Show, Leslie Jones snapped the happiest of pics with her new bust buddies Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Melissa McCarthy (plus some non-ghost-affiliated but still pretty awesome celebrities. Hey, Rihanna).

  3. SNL’s 40th Anniversary Show: Female Comedians, Diversity Jokes, and Lots of Awkwardness

    Or Sunday Night Live, if you want to get pedantic.

    There were cast members reprising classic roles, actor cameos, musical performances and more during the three and a half hour long Saturday Night Live anniversary special last night which opened with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. Did it live up to expectations?

  4. Why All Those Sexist Complaints About The New Ghostbusters Movie Are Garbage

    I simply love the first Ghostbusters movie, though I know it has issues. It gets lost a little in the last third, and its treatment of women is not exactly that positive (right from the opening, where a professor is targeting a student for sex). Despite that, I’d still argue that the movie contains some of the greatest filmmaking of all time. Okay, I might be biased as I'm a fan, but even Bill Murray agrees. Clearly he's not biased because he's Bill freaking Murray.

  5. Dan Aykroyd Says He’s “Delighted” by the Female Ghostbusters; Take That, Haters

    But what about Feig's plans to destroy all evidence of the original's existence? Or this Pandera Ring thing people keep mentioning?!

    You know what I like about the upcoming Ghostbusters movie? (Aside from its great representation and stellar cast, that is.) I love that, while it's exciting to hear that original Ghostbuster and co-writer of the 1984 film Dan Aykroyd is down with some lady-busters, at this point it also doesn't really matter what he or any other dude thinks.

  8. First Trailer For Paul Feig’s Spy Stars Melissa McCarthy, Allison Janney, Rose Byrne & More

    This is a "Red Band" trailer so warning for extreme violence & potty mouth.

    Previously titled Susan Cooper, we've been hearing about this re-teaming of Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig for quite a while now. Spy is meant to be a James Bond-like parody film but the first trailer doesn't reveal the kind of story I was hoping for, rather it falls back on the Feig/McCarthy playbook.

  9. Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, and Four Other Funny Ladies Are Totally Down For Ghostbusters 3

    Would you describe the Ghostbusters theme as 'triumphant saxophone?'

    Last week Rebel Wilson announced that she had already taken a meeting with Paul Feig to discuss the Ghostbusters reboot, but the Bridesmaids star isn't the only funny lady eager to don a proton pack: there are veritable binders of women interested in joining the franchise.

  10. Melissa McCarthy To Play Tinker Bell In Live-Action Peter Pan; NBC Musical Releases Tiger Lily, Captain Hook Footage

    With Nicolas Cage as Nana! (Let's manifest that casting, people.)

    Sure, maybe we don't need another live-action Peter Pan, but I'm not complaining. Look what our fascination with perpetual adolescence hath wrought! Party City-wearing Christopher Walken as the world's most over-it Captain Hook! We are going to watch this "Tinkerbell adventure project," everyone, and we are going to like it.

  11. Bridesmaids & The Heat Director Might Make A Female-Led Ghostbusters Reboot

    For once, I don't care that Hollywood is out of original ideas.

    File this under "If this is legit, we are more excited for this movie than perhaps any other movie ever." Various outlets are reporting that Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feige is in line to direct the new Ghostbusters film that's in development - and that he'd want it to star an all-female team.

Melissa McCarthy in a spy movie. Melissa McCarthy as the leading role in a spy movie. Melissa McCarthy as the leading role in a spy movie, with Jason Statham as her co-star.
