This week on the Crossrip, we're joined by the minds behind BBQ Films' experience in Brooklyn, New York: Lenny Platt, Gabriel Rhoads, and Lauren Lickus! Plus a contest sponsored by Loot Crate! But in the first hour, catching up on the latest news (because there's a whole lot) - a new single by Elle King for the new Ghostbusters film was released as part of the new soundtrack announcement, Troy and Chris dissect all the news there. Global Ghostbusters Day is coming up on June 8th, the guys run down everything that entails including old and new cast members meeting in one place on the Jimmy Kimmell Live show this coming Wednesday. Chris is SUPER caffeinated and excited to have gotten his first batch of Cryptozoic trading cards, so buckle up because he's going to break it down. The boys talk about that Dan Aykroyd comment and a certain TV spot as well as Tom Zhou's breakdown of the trailer editorial. Lots of merch news including Mattel exclusives and puzzles galore. Stay tuned for news about how you can win a free limited edition Ghostbusters Loot Crate and then in our second hour, hear how a warehouse in Brooklyn was transformed for the ultimate Ghostbusters experience by the team at BBQ Films!
