Mattel is reporting that sales of its new line of Ghostbusters toys—the ones based on the remake featuring all female leads—have been impressive among both boys and girls and “exceeded expectations.”
Leslie Jones appears to have taken a break from Twitter after a deluge of disturbing and extremely racist tweets were directed her way. But now, other celebrities are trying to spread the Leslie Jones love, and condemning Twitter’s inability to protect users.
Did you see Ghostbusters this weekend? Or was it just everyone I’ve ever met and also their mothers and their children?
During its Thursday preview night, the Ghostbusters reboot started priming the cash pump, and she’s going good now.
In one small way, this is the tale of two Hemsworths.
Apparently some people are angry that the new Ghostbusters movie has “ruined their childhood.” But I must confess that this came as a shock to me. Because either these people discovered a way to travel back to the 1980s... or they don’t understand how the simple progression of time works.
In a tradition that never gets old, Kristen Wiig went on The Tonight Show to promote her new movie (this time, Ghostbusters) not as herself, but as a fellow celebrity who she knows very little about. In the past, she’s impersonated Michael Jordan, Harry Styles, and the Mother of Dragons. This time, she’s the…
Since it was announced, people (if men actually count as people) have been losing their shit over the new Ghostbusters reboot simply because the Ghostbusters are all women this time around. If a particularly shrill segment of the male population can’t deal with the notion of proton guns as functioning ghost-capturing…
Lots of big laughs and blood-curdling screams in this clip of Leslie Jones on Tuesday’s Live with Kelly and [Insert Michael Strahan Replacement Here]. The SNL and Ghostbusters star excitedly charmed her way through the majority of the interview, transferring her energy to Kelly Ripa and guest host Carrie Ann Inaba, as…
These dancers at the Ghostbusters premiere on Saturday got to meet the stars. For some reason, some people think it’s important to have women lead films. Look at the expression on these little girls and you’ll see just what that reason is.
One of the four stars of Ghostbusters, Leslie Jones, couldn’t find a designer willing to dress her for the red carpet of her hugely anticipated film. That. Sucks.
We’ve had to sit through months of sexist Ghostbusters fanboys in a full-blown outrage woody because the new Ghostbusters is comprised of four very capable, very funny women instead of men. The mommy-fear was palpable there, and perhaps a plant, because even despite Missy Elliott, the real thing Ghostbusters fans have…
Some of the leading ladies of the Ghostbuster’s reboot have commented on the internet backlash against their casting in the franchise—a backlash that feels like it’s been going on for maybe a hundred years now, and predates the original film in my mind.
The cast of the Ghostbusters reboot stopped by Ellen on Wednesday, leading to a delightful moment in which Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones almost brought Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Melissa McCarthy to the point of crying laughter with her recollections of her former job as a Scientology telemarketer.
Sony Pictures has dropped a second trailer for Ghostbusters, due to hit theaters in July. This one features glimpses of New York City overrun with ghosts, as well as callbacks to the original—including an appearance by the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, who looks much less cute these days.
It’s hard to imagine this movie being as good as it needs to be to get past all this Internet neckbeard drama.
Leslie Jones’ role as an MTA employee in the Ghostbusters remake has already rubbed people the wrong way, solely based on the trailer. But the character was actually written for Melissa McCarthy at first.
The trailer for the Ghostbusters remake, released on Thursday, left more than a few people confused—particularly concerning the tag line about four scientists saving New York, since Leslie Jones’ character is actually an MTA worker (turned scientist, maybe).
