Dan Aykroyd's latest bizarre belief is that Bill Murray would ever be in a Ghostbusters 3 

Dan Aykroyd has put his name behind a lot of, let’s say, out there ideas over the years—many of the revolving around crystal skulls, and the life-giving powers and vodka contained within—but none are more bizarre than his continued, dogged, and utterly scientifically unfounded belief that there will ever be a …

Your daily reminder that Dan Aykroyd will say yes to any Ghostbusters pitch you give him

In a brief interview with Cinema Blend, Dan Aykroyd was asked whether he might be interested in a live-action Ghostbusters TV series—maybe one on Netflix, where Stranger Things is currently keeping the franchise alive through its characters’ period-accurate obsession with the 1984 film. Carefully weighing the myriad…

Studio refutes Dan Aykroyd’s claim that Paul Feig made Ghostbusters too expensive

If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, it might be Dan Aykroyd. When not talking about how real-life men in black were tailing him to prevent him from exposing the existence of UFOs, Aykroyd took some time over the past weekend to launch an unprompted critique of Ghostbusters reboot director Paul Feig.…

Dan Aykroyd blames Paul Feig for making the new Ghostbusters too expensive

While annoyingly controversial at the time, Paul Feig’s 2016 Ghostbusters movie didn’t make a huge impact due to the fact that it wasn’t significantly better or worse than the original. It was an entertaining film and a solid showcase for its many funny stars, but after seeing it/refusing to see it out of some stupid…

Dan Aykroyd celebrates the small moments he shared with Carrie Fisher in a new essay

Some of the best remembrances are nothing more than a collection of disjointed memories. That’s what this essay from Dan Aykroyd is. Aykroyd and the late Carrie Fisher were engaged to be married at one time, and in this memoriam he focuses not on the bigger picture of their courtship but the smaller moments that still…

My Girl delivered death in an unbearably precocious package

There was always something that irked me about My Girl. Even as a 10-year-old, I found the 1991 film’s 11-year-old protagonist, Vada Sultenfuss, a bit too much—too precocious, too dramatic, too confident. She’s a tomboy (played by an emotive Anna Chlumsky in her first leading role) who lives in a funeral home with her…

Honest Trailers claims Ghostbusters II sullied the precious franchise first

One of the more depressing pop-culture stories of 2016 has been the nerd rage incited by the female-driven, Paul Feig-directed reboot of the 1984 supernatural comedy Ghostbusters. The new film is just a shameless cash-in that will drag down the good name of the original, say Ghostbusters fans. But don’t converge upon…

Read This: In the real world, busting ghosts would be quite profitable

Ivan Reitman’s supernatural comedy Ghostbusters has already proven itself a tremendous financial success many times over. It was the top-grossing film in the blockbuster-saturated year of 1984, besting even Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and has gone on to generate nearly $300 million in box office receipts on…

“Rocket 88,” the first rock song ever, turns 65 today

By some accounts, rock ’n’ roll music has officially reached retirement age as of today. Though such matters are eternally in dispute, numerous music historians have cited “Rocket 88” by Jackie Brenston And His Delta Cats, recorded March 3, 1951 in Memphis, Tennessee, as the very first rock song ever committed to…
