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.
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.
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.
After much teasing, Sony just dropped the full trailer for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, which stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon and is due to hit theaters this summer.
The next time you notice something strange in the neighborhood, who exactly are you going call? Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Leslie Jones, of course. Your brand new team of Ghostbusters.
Ever since the Ghostbusters remake was first announced, the film has faced criticism and controversy from fans of the original who are appalled that four talented women have dared to portray the paranormal investigating quartet.
Yet another member of the original Ghostbusters cast has signed on to Paul Feig’s misandrist reboot. Deadline reports that Sigourney Weaver who played Dana Barrett, a single woman who’s possessed and transformed into The Gatekeeper, will join Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson in the reboot.
So much for that whole conspiracy theory that Billy Murray was shocked and appalled by Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters remake. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Murray has signed on to appear in the 2016 remake.
Director Paul Feig tweeted the first look at the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters. Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon stand in front of the Ecto-1 in full costume, proton packs and all. Don’t worry, it only took about three replies for a dude to get angry about vaginas. In better news,…
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything new about the highly-anticipated, all-female Ghostbusters reboot. Thankfully, Paul Feig has decided to throw us a bone. The director revealed the film’s newest cast member on Twitter, and it is Chris Hemsworth. The Australian actor, best known for his role as Thor in the…
Deadline is reporting that a live-action movie based on Hasbro’s Play-Doh is in the works, somehow, and that Paul Feig (The Heat) might direct it, somehow. Every big star in Hollywood probably must want a piece of this Doh, but a specific few could probably do it better than anyone else. Picture it: your favorite…
In an interview as SXSW, director Paul Feig had some words for the tsunami of hysterical men spitting venom about his upcoming all-female Ghostbusters film.
Bad news, manosphere: F-F-F-F-FEMINISTS have seized the Ghostbusters franchise, replacing all of the characters that we've grown to know and love with four angry dykes and offering the director's chair to some chick named Paul Feig. Ghostbusters? MORE LIKE BALLBUSTERS.
At long last, we get a peek at Paul Feig's Spy, starring Melissa McCarthy as an unlikely (and possibly unqualified?) James Bond. On the basis of this new red-band trailer, I continue to nurse the hope that it will combine the charm of Bridesmaids with zany Archer-like shenanigans.
Well, here is the official trailer for the CGI Peanuts movie, due to hit theaters in November 2015. Not sure about this. Not one bit.
Get excited if you love spies, because Melissa McCarthy's next role will be "unlikely spy" Susan Cooper, in a riff on James Bond by Bridesmaids' Paul Feig. Her just-signed costar? Terrifyingly stone-faced action star Jason Statham.
Can you believe the Oscars are almost here? In this new promo, host Ellen Degeneres and a posse of energetic dancers boogie down a "street" set, and everyone's in a penguin suit.
In today's Tweet Beat, Mae Whitman has a really sexy idea, Paul Feig is a fan of Scandal like everyone else and Courtney Love is VERY happy her phone didn't get into the wrong hands.
Another day, another highly hypothetical speculation about the potential of a Wonder Woman movie to burst out of the miasma of patriarchy and enact righteous justice upon the box office. This one is a bit unconventional, though: in recent interview with IGN, Paul Feig — who notably directed both Bridesmaids and The…
Are Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig the new DeNiro and Scorsese or the new Bogart and Huston? Both, probably! The actress and director can't stop working together — THANK YEEZUS — and we, the public, keep benefitting.
