'Ghostbusters' gets a retro 30th anniversary release trailer

Sometimes it’s best not to mess with the classics. So, in honor of the 30th anniversary theatrical re-release of a restored and remastered Ghostbusters—coming this Labor Day weekend—Sony has released a fittingly retro trailer.

Ghostbusters is still one of our studio’s most beloved franchises,” Rory Bruer, Sony’s president of worldwide distribution, told EW’s Jeff Labrecque. “I was lucky enough to work on the release of the film on its first run, so it’s a real thrill for me to see that it’s still connecting with audiences everywhere. On the big screen or in home entertainment, this is a great movie to experience again and again.”

'Ghostbusters' gets the call for theatrical re-release -- EXCLUSIVE

This weekend marks the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters, which came, saw, and kicked Mr. Stay Puft’s ass in the summer of 1984. The hilarious, special-effects-laden adventure about Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and the late Harold Ramis’ trio of disgraced academics, who luck into the paranormal extermination racket just as supernatural creatures try to bring about the end of times, dominated the box office and had virtually every American humming Ray Parker Jr.’s theme song and asking the rhetorical question, “Who you gonna call?” READ FULL STORY

Why Ivan Reitman won't direct new 'Ghostbusters' movie: 'It wasn't really that hard'

Most things come with a “past due” date, and that includes directing jobs. For Ivan Reitman, the moment he decided to bow out of helming the long-gestating Ghostbusters III occurred when he returned from his friend Harold Ramis’ funeral, held in Chicago last month.

“It wasn’t that hard,” Reitman told EW of the decision. “When I came back from the funeral, I thought it would be better to turn the director’s chores over to someone else and let me produce it.” READ FULL STORY

'Ghostbusters' co-star Dan Aykroyd, director Ivan Reitman on Harold Ramis' death

Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis were perhaps best known for fighting ghosts, but the pair worked together both on and off screen. In addition to acting together in Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, Ramis and Aykroyd also had a hand in writing both films. And with the recent news of Ramis’ death, Aykroyd said goodbye to a friend:

“Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my brilliant, gifted, funny friend, co-writer/performer and teacher Harold Ramis. May he now get the answers he was always seeking,”  Aykroyd said in an email.

Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman also released a statement to EW about his friend’s passing:

“The world has lost a wonderful, truly original, comedy voice with the passing of Harold Ramis,” Reitman said. “He possessed the most agile mind I’ve ever witnessed. He always had the clearest sense of what was funny and how to create something in a new clever way. He was very generous about making everyone around him look better and smarter. Harold had an extraordinary impact on my career and I loved him like a brother. My heart goes out to his children, and his lovely wife, Erica. He will be profoundly missed.”

'Ghostbusters' to get the 'Room 237' treatment in new documentary 'Spook Central'? -- VIDEO

Does Ghostbusters contain secret messages about smoking, obesity, and/or the reproductive process of Sigourney Weaver’s character Dana Barrett? Those theories are raised by a new documentary called Spook Central, which seemingly does for the 1984 comedy classic what the recent, subtext-exploring Room 237 did for Stanley Kubrick’s horror movie The Shining.

'Ghostbusters' live-read grabs Seth Rogen, Jack Black, and Rainn Wilson -- EXCLUSIVE

There’s no replacing Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis as the original Ghostbusters, but if you were staging a one-night-only live version of the classic comedy, well … whom might one contact?

Seth Rogen, Jack Black, and Rainn Wilson are going to cross the streams.

The event is one of the monthly live-reads of a famous movie script organized by Juno and Up in the Air filmmaker Jason Reitman, who  — of course — has a family connection to this story. His father, Ivan Reitman, directed Ghostbusters and he remembers hanging around on the set as a little kid.

But even he was surprised when he went back and looked at the original script of the movie for Thursday night’s reading at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

It turns out, Murray was making it all up as he went along. READ FULL STORY

Bill Murray will not do 'Ghostbusters 3,' admits Dan Aykroyd

Bill Murray is dead-set against starring in another Ghostbusters movie, though he did not shred the most recent script and mail pieces back to Dan Aykroyd, the former Blues Brother tells the London Telegraph. “It’s a surety that Bill Murray will not do the movie,” he said. “However there is still interest from the studio.”

Aykroyd has been working to resurrect the franchise for more than 10 years — passing the torch to a new set of paranormal investigators, perhaps — with Murray the major stumbling block. He’s gone on television and radio and made it clear to journalists that he finds the idea repugnant.

“At this point it’s in suspended animation,” Aykroyd said. READ FULL STORY
