We still know very little about the upcoming Ghostbusters animated film other than that Fletcher Moules is slated to direct, but while there's still no word on who's writing the film, or the gender of the Ghostbusters in question, we do have a little more information about the film's plot.Read More

Paul Feig Shares What He’s Learned About Women Through Ghostbusters Experience, Which Includes Nothing About Race
But Harambe photos, tho!
As director of the "controversial" (controversial if you have trouble believing women can do things) Ghostbusters reboot, Paul Feig has had a very interesting and not entirely pleasant 2016. In a recent short essay, Feig shares what he's learned about "being a woman." Notably missing are any insights he may have gained about the specific challenges of being a black woman, a la Leslie Jones.Read More
Alice Drummond, veteran character actress of stage and screen, passed away today at the age of 88. She's best known for a brief role that doesn't even have an official name: that of the "Librarian" in the original Ghostbusters movie.Read More
WAIT. Stop hanging those colorful lights. Step away from the snowflake patterns. We have a last-minute entry into the season of ghosts and ghouls: Paul Feig is still holding out hope for a Ghostbusters sequel, and we'd love to see that happen.Read More
Kate McKinnon's Holtzmann was already our favorite part of Ghostbusters, but due to the nature of improv, there was so much we didn't get to see in theaters. Luckily, we live in the future, where home release special features/the Internet come to the rescue, and we all have a front row seat to the awesome power of McKinnon's comedic genius.Read More
With reboots and remakes of long-running franchises and already existing, successful projects making up a significant number of films and TV shows released within the past few years, there's been some well-deserved complaints among fans who want Hollywood to take more chances on original stories. But, what do we mean when we say "original?"Read More
Smells like toasted Stay Puft marshmallows.
Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot has come and gone—and come back again on home video under its "new" title of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call—but there's still time to get a few more jabs in at the ridiculous "ruining my childhood" controversy that surrounded the movie. A new LEGO Dimensions story pack for Ghostbusters features Feig himself as an Easter egg with a telling single line of dialogue.Read More
The 2016 version of Ghostbusters is coming out on DVD this fall, and once it does, you won't have to call it "the 2016 version of Ghostbusters" anymore, because it'll have a new title: Ghostbusters: Answer the Call.Read More
The coolest part are those visual effects that combine practical effects--like lighting, talented actors and even a drone or two--with the incorporation of some computer-generated ghost imagery to complete the finished product. While the reel itself is short (sorry, no Holtzmann fight footage), it's a reminder of all the work that goes into making the final spooky result.Read More
It seems as though some people are determined to paint Ghostbusters as this huge, embarrassing failure no matter what anyone says.Read More
Ladies, gentlemen, and gender non-conforming folks, welcome to The Most Adorable Fan Letter Ever.Read More
Kate McKinnon is an out lesbian and infused her Ghostbusters performance with glorious queerness, but following the release of the movie there were many questions raised as to whether Holtzmann was really gay. All of this lead me to the question: if a queer character exists in media without explicit confirmation, does it make a sound?Read More
Of course you do.
Ever since the very first images of Kate McKinnon's character in Ghostbusters appeared online, it seemed like everybody had the same question: where do we buy a pair of those glasses???? Now, at last, we know the answer.Read More
Sexy Ghostbusters costumes have been marketed towards women and girls for many years now, and this Halloween will be no exception ... but one huge difference this year in particular is that the idea of a woman strapping on a proton pack has become fraught with political implications, what with the Ghostbusters reboot and all.Read More
Bustin' expectations makes me feel good!
Kids have also supported the movie really well--after a decent opening weekend, the film went on to gross $62 million domestically within the first week, and the younger audience members have been giving it an average score of 4.5 out of 5 stars over the past weekend.Read More
Hillary Clinton has just made history as the first female US Presidential candidate for a major party, and that story is rightfully making headlines. Too bad that so many news outlets are running photos of her husband and the dude she beat instead. The Nerdy Bird tipped us off to the, um, interesting trend, and Jezebel expounded upon it. Pro tip for news outlets: When someone makes history, it's customary to lead your story off with a photo of said person making history.Read More
"We're all the ghost girls now."
One quote immediately came to mind after I saw Ghostbusters for the first time - "friendships between women are often the deepest and most profound love stories." This film, which has no romantic subplot, gives a bond between two best friends the kind of significance most stories would reserve for two people falling in love.Read More
If you've ever wanted to dress up as your favorite Ghostbuster, then look no further.Read More
I mean, everything is political. But you knew that.
A lot of the early criticism of Ghostbusters has revolved around whether or not it's funny and whether it's not it's feminist and whether or not one of those things is somehow related to the other. I don't know about all of you, but I'm exhausted.Read More
