Chris Hemsworth Reveals He Was THIS Close To Pulling Out Of ‘Ghostbusters’

When the all-female ‘Ghostbusters‘ film was released back in 2016, it sparked a lot of controversy, mainly from angry dudes online who thought women couldn’t possibly kill ghosts.

Chris Hemsworth played a clueless receptionist in the movie, and most everyone loved seeing his comedic side. Even the angry trolls liked his performance.

But in a new interview with Variety, Hemsworth revealed he almost pulled out of the movie at the last minute.

The night before I was shooting, I almost pulled out. Three or four weeks prior, Paul said to me, ‘I’m going to write up the character. Don’t worry.’ And then I got the script and nothing had changed.

Hemsworth’s agent set up a last minute meeting with director Paul Feig, and he assured the actor that there would be “a lot to do” via improvisation.

“I was really scared walking onto that set. I had no real plan, so I was just feeding off of them, and I just felt ridiculous. So I used that,” Hemsworth told the magazine.

By the way, he would have loved to film a sequel, and he’s still mad that the “online fanboys” slammed the movie online without giving it a chance…

That whole period I was like, ‘What ownership do you guys have over those characters? Oh, you watched the film, therefore you should have a say over where it goes?’ I thought it was very unfortunate and kind of disappointing.

Director Paul Feig Says A Sequel To ‘Bridesmaids’ Will Probably NOT Happen

For those who don’t know, filmmaker Paul Feig has a new movie coming out titled A Simple Favor. The mystery thriller film, which is based on a 2017 novel of the same name, stars Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively.

This movie is a bit of a surprise coming from Feig because he’s known for his work in the comedy world. But when someone has as much talent as Feig, you know they probably feel comfortable doing any genre.

A Simple Favor had its premiere on Monday at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and Feig talked to reporters throughout the night.

And of course there were a few reporters asking him about a potential ‘Bridesmaids‘ sequel, ’cause Hollywood can’t let go of things. Thankfully, he responded to their inquiries by basically saying a sequel would not happen…

“I don’t know if there will be one honestly. That movie worked so well because it was about a woman having a crisis in her life and fixing it. So you don’t want her to have another crisis.”

That’s fine with us. By the way, Feig’s NEW film, A Simple Favor, is scheduled to hit theaters September 14, 2018.

Wait, What? The Early Reaction For ‘Ghostbusters’ Remake Is Actually Positive? Details And New TV Spot Inside!

ghoss

There haven’t been any official reviews released for Paul Feig’s remake of Ghostbusters, and there won’t be until Sunday (July 10) when the press embargo is lifted. However, those bans really don’t mean all that much anymore, thanks to sites like Twitter where people can share their immediate reactions to almost anything.

Several celebrities and journalists were treated to an early screening of the film, and most of them had nothing but great things to say. Even the extremely talented comedian Patton Oswalt called the movie terrific. Seriously.

Check out the tweets below…

gho2

And while these tweets are positive, we have a feeling the haters aren’t going to care. Jesus could drop down from the clouds and say, “People of Earth, the new Ghostbusters film is on fleek,” and people would probably try to nail him to a cross again.

The truth is, Sony Pictures made a goof when they released that terrible first trailer. The world was already prepared to hate the film, and that trailer made it 10x easier.

But for those willing to give it another shot, we suggest you watch the clips below. The first one features a brief appearance from original Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd. The film is scheduled to hit theaters July 15, 2016. Will you be watching?

 

 

The New Trailer For The Ghostbusters Remake Might Surprise You (VIDEO)

ghoo

Yes, we know. The upcoming all-female remake of Ghostbusters is the worst thing to happen since the Berry Creme Oreo. The internet wants you to believe this movie will be terrible, and you know what? It might be. The first trailer certainly didn’t calm down the haters. If anything, it convinced more people to join the dark side.

But you can’t judge a movie by its first trailer. Yes, we know that’s kinda the point of a trailer, but let’s just try to be positive today, okay? The latest trailer for the movie is actually not that bad. You get to watch the ghosts attack New York City, the effects are pretty dope, and there is one (possibly two) clever jokes thrown in.

If you’re one of those rare people still on the fence (meaning the haters haven’t dragged you down,) then this new trailer might convince you to give Ghostbusters a chance. You have to imagine everyone connected to this project feels better about this second trailer. Honestly, they should probably just delete the first one and pretend like it never happened.

Ghostbusters will hit theaters July 15. Will you be there to watch it?

 

‘Ghostbusters’ Director Paul Feig Defends His Cast After Haters Online Trash The New Trailer

gho

Last week, the first trailer for the ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot was released, and to say it received “mixed reactions” would be a lie. The reactions to the trailer were mostly negative. It has over 22 million views on YouTube, but has just 177k likes compared to a ridiculous 390k dislikes.

Those numbers are usually reserved for videos showing animal abuse.

Honestly, I didn’t think the trailer was that bad. It was an average trailer for what is most likely going to be an average/entertaining film. But the haters of the internet have been preparing to hate this trailer for months. This trailer could have been the funniest trailer in history and people would have still hated it.

Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, and Kristen Wiig have experienced some nasty comments from the haters, but poor Leslie Jones has experienced most of the irrational hate.

The comedian/actress received so many negative comments that she actually considered leaving Twitter, but that’s when director Paul Feig stepped in.

Feig’s comments will only fuel the haters, so he probably made the problem worse on social media. However, it’s nice to see him protect his cast, and we have to imagine it looks good to other actors in Hollywood. I know I’d feel comfortable working with Feig.

Ghostbusters Reboot Releases New Image And Teases Supernatural Villain!

ghos

Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters reboot will hit theaters July 15, 2016, which is a little crazy to think about. It seems like just yesterday the “bros” of the internet were losing their minds when they discovered females would be taking over the franchise.

In reality, it’s been several months since the sexist reactions spread across the internet. Filming of the movie took place in New York City and Boston from June to September. And for a month or two after, you didn’t hear much from Ghostbusters land.

But now that we’re just seven months away from the release, promotion for the film is starting to heat up. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have another fierce image from the reboot to share online. You can check out the new image at the bottom of this page.

Before you travel down though, we should tell you that the EW article revealed the new Ghostbusters team will be fighting the spirits of deceased criminals…

” Pilgrims, old-timey sailors, Revolutionary War spirits, and even a couple of zoot­-suited gangsters are ready to take on four formidable female busters looking to rid the city of its phantasmic filth.”

Sounds like it’s going to be an entertaining (and bumpy) ride.

Kristen Wiig Admits Negative Reaction Toward All-Female ‘Ghostbusters’ Bummed Her Out

Now that Kristen Wiig has finished filming the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, she’s ready to talk about the backlash against the upcoming film. As some of you may remember, when Paul Feig confirmed he was directing this movie, thousands of online trolls came out to say, “WHAT? WOMEN CAN’T FIGHT GHOSTS!”

People truly thought that putting women in the lead roles would ruin the classic film. They weren’t worried about the script, the director, or anything else that actually matters when it comes to making a movie. They just didn’t want those ladies leaving their stations inside the kitchen.

This obviously upset Kristen Wiig, who will star in the movie. During an interview with the LA Times, the actress talked about how bummed out she was…

“The fact there was so much controversy because we were women was surprising to me. Some people said some really not nice things about the fact that there were women. It didn’t make me mad, it just really bummed me out. We’re really honoring those movies.”

Hopefully that quote will make those haters feel bad, especially since she pulled the whole, “I’m not mad…I’m just disappointed.” card.

Paul Feig wasn’t as nice. Back in March, he told Variety that internet bullies wrote “some of the most vile, misogynistic s— I’ve ever seen in my life,” adding that most of the time it wasn’t even some silly teenager.

“But almost constantly it’s someone who’s bio says ‘Proud father of two!’ And has some high-end job. You’re raising children and yet you’re bashing me about putting women in my movie?”

You can watch Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Melissa McCarthy in action when the reboot hits theaters July 22, 2016.

It’s A Wrap! Ghostbusters Reboot Ends Filming, Check Out Some Of The Final Set Photos!

Step one is complete. Production on the Ghostbusters reboot wrapped last Saturday, but not before another original Ghostbusters star made a special appearance on set.

As most of you know, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd already filmed their cameo roles, and this past weekend Ernie Hudson joined in on the fun. According to the reports, most of his scenes will include Leslie Jones and Melissa McCarthy. That doesn’t really tell us much of anything, but we thought it was information you should know. We do know that all three of the original cast members will be playing new characters in the reboot.

Ernie Hudson seemed to really enjoy his day on set. In fact, he called it one of the most fun days of his career on Twitter.

All reports from the set matched Ernie’s comments. It seems like everyone enjoyed making this film, and that’s usually a good sign for the audience. A healthy work environment usually creates a quality product.

Now that filming has ended, it won’t be long before the marketing team starts pumping out posters, official teaser photos, trailers, etc. But for now, you’ll have to settle for these on-set photos from ComingSoon. The film is scheduled for a July 15, 2016 release date.

Bill Murray Will Make Special Appearance In ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot

It didn’t look like it was going to happen. Bill Murray has been against appearing in a third Ghostbusters film for a long time, mainly because the second film wasn’t as successful as the first. He was afraid the trend would continue.

But according to The Hollywood Reporter, the 64-year-old actor has agreed to make a special appearance in the new reboot being directed by Paul Feig. The actor was spotted in Boston, MA, heading to the set of the film. No one knows how big or small his role will be.

Will he return as his original character? We don’t know. We do know that Dan Aykroyd will also make a special appearance in the film, which isn’t surprising considering he has been trying to get another Ghostbusters movie made for years now.

It’ll be interesting to see how Murray and Aykroyd fit in with this hard reboot. My guess? They’ll only appear on screen for a few seconds. Just enough time for the audience to get excited.

As mentioned above, Paul Feig will be directing. Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig, Chris Hemsworth and Cecily Strong star in the movie. It’s currently scheduled for a July 15, 2016 release.

Paul Feig Teases ‘Ghostbusters’ Fans With Photos Of New Uniforms And Proton Packs!

gho

Let the criticism begin! Production on the all-female Ghostbusters reboot started up earlier this month, and it didn’t take long for set photos to “leak” online. Mostly, the photos have simply shown some of the cast members on set.

Besides the fact that it looks like Kate McKinnon has to use the restroom (or maybe already has) there isn’t a lot in the photo for fans of the original film to complain about.

But that all changed yesterday when director Paul Feig shared the photo you see below to his Twitter account. The first look at the new (and improved?) Ghostbusters team’s uniforms.

And today, Feig added to the madness by releasing another photo on his Twitter account. Showing fans the first look at the new proton packs. #whatyougonnashoot He captioned the photo.

And while there are differences between both the original uniforms and proton packs, the designs haven’t been changed that much; however, fans are still finding things to complain about. The reaction to this new movie has been so negative.

Just take a look at some of the comments we found across the web…

comm

commmcommmm

Of course, there are some positive comments out there, but the majority of them have been negative. I understand being skeptical, but at least wait until you actually see the movie before you dismiss it completely. You can’t judge a book by its cover, and you can’t judge a Ghostbusters reboot by its proton pack.

If anyone cares, the movie is scheduled to hit theaters July 22, 2016.
