The Ant-Man star indicates that he has accepted an offer to be cast in the new movie. He’s a fan of the original. And filming will begin (likely) in the fall.
There really isn’t much to report here other than he will be joining the ever growing list of cast announcements for the continuation of the Ghostbusters series that will be directed by Jason Reitman, the original director Ivan Reitman’s son.
What I do like about this is that Jason Reitman keeps stressing that he wants to make it to honor his father and the fans. I sincerely hope he does! It would be a refreshing change.

The current scuttlebutt about the once mighty Toys-R-Us says the new owners are moving forward with plans to bring the toy store back to the United States by Christmas 2019, but there’s a catch. There will be about half a dozen stores.
Richard Barry CEO of new entity TRU Kids Inc., has apparently been pitching the plan to reincarnate the chain to toy makers. As well as at an industry conference, according to people who wished to remain anonymous because the plans aren’t yet public.
Each of the stores will be about 1/3 the size of what the usual Toy-R-Us stores were. It seems the plan is to have the stores be about 10,000 square feet with extra “experiences” to make them a “destination.” So play areas in an already smaller space. Is this Chuck e Cheese or Toys-R-Us?
Of course fewer than ten stores won’t be enough so there will also be an online store at the ToysRUs.com Url. According to Comicbook.com:
Here’s my thing. Toys-R-Us didn’t score points with me for how they shut down and kind of stuck it to their employees. As other news sites have pointed out, they burned bridges with some retailers too and it’s going to be an uphill struggle to rebuild that. Large toy companies lost money from the liquidation and they lost exclusives. I know that the Calico Critters line was once pretty much TRU exclusive went to Wal-Mart already. I’m sure it’s the same for a few other lines.
Plus Walmart, Target, and Amazon and places like grocery stores took the opportunity to jump in and fill the void left by the large toy store.
But as of now the Chief Executive Officer Isaac Larian has indicated that MGA Entertainment (Little Tikes, Bratz, L.O.L Surprise) are willing to work with them. ““This market needs a self-standing toy store, that’s for sure. We will sell them inventory.”
If you thought the market needed you why did you liquidate all the stores and are struggling to find a plan. There are brick and mortar stores that sell toys including the return of smaller independent stores. Their prices aren’t much different that the higher prices Toys-R-Us charged. Plus KB Toys has made moves to return to the market as well.
Personally, I am nostalgic for TRU, but I’m also a bit miffed by their behavior towards employees and toy companies. There still seems to be a bit of a cavalier attitude here. I’m not sure how well this will do. But only time will tell.
“We are doing that,” Feige said of an Endgame re-release with new footage. “I don’t know if it’s been announced. And I don’t know how much… Yeah, we’re doing it next weekend.”
The movie will return to theaters on June 28 with a whopping seven minutes of “bonus footage.” It will make the total run time 188 minutes and it will add a tribute to the late Stan Lee. I don’t want to pay again and sit through over thee hours for seven minutes.
Are people actually asking for this? Isn’t it still in 2nd or 3rd run theaters now?
Disney is jacking up prices at the parks again and now they are re-releasing their Avengers film just 2 months after it opened, but no it’s different because it has extra footage. It all kind of feels like desperation to me.
They didn’t break Avatar’s record at $2.788 billion, so now they are thinking a re-release would do that? As of now Avengers: Endgame is at $2.743 billion. Somehow it feels like cheating a bit, not to mention they own Avatar now too? Both Captain Marvel and Avengers: End Game did perform well in theaters. X-men Dark Phoenix did not, but they have Spider-man: Far From Home coming on July 2nd.
If they are worried about franchise “burnout” like they claim is the cause for the Star Wars franchise, why would they release this again, right before Spider-man: Far From Home? Plus they’ve had three Marvel releases since March. Then they have The Lion King and Star Wars Episode IX coming as well. It just seems like a bad move.
News flash: People don’t have infinite money. If you need money to pay for the park additions, the overpriced Fox merger, and now the Disney+ streaming service, maybe you shouldn’t have bit off more than you can chew. There are limits for people and as much as I love Marvel and classic Star Wars and Disney parks, you are starting to turn me off and price me out. I’m sure it’s the same for a lot of others. Disney burnout could become a thing if it continues.
I don’t want to be turned off. I truly do love the Disney Parks and classic Star Wars and Disney animated features and a lot of the Marvel movies. But I’m starting to feel more like a payday and less like a valued customer. Disney you might want to stop and think a bit more because consumers do have limits and I think you are starting to approaching the limit for customers. Something to consider.

Okay guys, we told you this was coming!

The movie is based on the 60s live action Hanna-Barbera live-action show by Sid and Marty Krofft. Bringing back the original characters Fleegle the Beagle, Drooper the Lion, Bingo the Gorilla and Snorky the Elephant in a very different way.
I’m sure this is all due to the popular Five Nights at Freddy’s games and other similar spin off games like it. The Banana Splits fit the genre pretty well. I mean, if we’re being honest, they have always been a bit creepy.
Here’s the write up “The beloved children’s show is back… with a vengeance, a horrible, bloody vengeance. Starring Dani Kind, Finlay Wojtak-Hissong, and Romeo Carere.”
Look for this movie to premier on the Syfy Channel later this year and then it will come exclusively to Blu-ray and Digital after.

“In making this movie, we found something kind of extraordinary. We went to Sony, and we said, ‘We’d really love to get back into the original dailies from 1984. Do you still have them?’ And we found them. They were in a mine in Kansas, and we shipped the boxes to Burbank. We’ve been going through the footage for reasons I cannot tell you, but along the way we found some really cool stuff.”
Reitman also indicated how important it is to him to make a film that is true to the original. Even putting together a “think tank” of people who created the first movie. “Going into making this film, we wanted to make a love letter to the original movie,” he said.

““I do [want this to be a scary movie]. That’s one of my favorite things about the original, and one of my favorite things about movies of that time in the ‘80s, that a movie could be really funny and really scary. Particularly for young people, scaring young people. I want to scare children, I think that’s where I’m heading to.”
This is a smart move. In a time where things seem to be more and more sanitized I would love to see a movie like this. I think Stranger Things has proven there is definitely a market for this and with young people as well. My kids absolutely love Stranger Things. They also love the original Ghostbusters. I still remember how I felt when I was a kid, sitting in the theater, and the librarian started to change and scream. That was really memorable to me.

If you did you will now get your chance to see it on the big screen, or like me, see it again on the big screen. Sony Pictures is collaborating with Fathom Events to bring the original Ghostbusters back to select theaters on October 6 and 10, 2019.
My son’s favorite announcement was that Saber Interactive HD will re-release the Ghostbusters game as Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered! If you have never played this game you need to. It was written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis and is widely accepted as a sequel to the first two films. It will release later this year and will be available on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC.

Spirit Halloween has a “life sized” Terror Dog inspired by Ghostbusters up for pre-order. At $499 this is a pricey static figure, but it’s eyes do glow red! I can see some people wanting to buy one.
