This week on the Crossrip, we're catching up on news including the DVD/Blu-ray release of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call and more! There's a lot of marketing and merchandising surrounding the home video release and Troy and Chris break down the press appearances and special events that are on the docket including an appearance by Ray Parker Jr. and Paul Feig on the TODAY Show. The LEGO Dimensions expansion pack is out and the boys talk a little about a surprise cameo that has everyone talking, and that leads to a little conversation about the 2009 Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Ernie Hudson is hitting Oklahoma for Halloween. Lots of merch coming out including Ghostbusters International #9, Diamond Select Wave 4 action figures, and a whole lot more. It's a packed episode but we even snuck in a view listener voicemails!
This week on the show we're joined by special guest, Marie Hicks, Ph.D - an Assistant Professor and Historian of Technology and Gender, and she might also happen to be the person that inflated a Stay Puft lawn decoration in her living room. We'll talk to her about the living room incident as well as discuss the social impact and debate that surrounded Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. But before that - news of course! This week marked the 30th Anniversary of The Real Ghostbusters originally airing, and the boys talk a bit about how they celebrated. Bill Murray is being honored by the Kennedy Center, Halloween is in the air (and so is all of the corresponding merchandise), and the Little Golden Books have hit the shelves! It's a jam-packed episode you won't want to miss! For more on Marie head to her website: www.mariehicks.net
Ghostbusters: Answer the Call is coming to Blu-ray (in a variety of Blu-ray formats) and it's jam-packed with bonus features, so we called in the big guns with Tyler Foster of DVDTalk to break it all down for us. But before the interview, as always a little bit of news including the re-release of Ghostbusters: ATC in theaters, Steve Johnson's new book, and Chris and Troy's revelation that they're about four issues behind on IDW's Ghostbusters International. Join us this holiday weekend, won't you?
This week on the show, Troy and Chris discuss the article that went 'round the world saying that Ghostbusters is heading for a loss of $70mil and the future of the franchise is in jeopardy... then goes on to say that an animated movie and series are on the way and a Sony rep told them their loss calculation was way off. Huh? Yeah, buckle up - this one's going to take a little bit of discourse. After that, a little news including the DVD/Blu-ray release date for Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, Leslie Jones at the Olympics, a Q&A with Kate McKinnon, and a merch round up (spoiler alert: we're really jealous of everyone in Japan).
This week, two podcasts in one! It's a proper Crossrip and a Cylotron - the first in our series analyzing Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. Joining us in the Cyclotron this week are Paul Gannon (of the CheapShow Podcast) and Page Branson (of the Level 7 Access podcast) to talk about the story and the characters of the new Ghostbusters film. But before that, there's a little bit of news including a very special fundraiser underway to make little Braeden a Ghostbuster from the For the Win Foundation. Plus some merch round up news, a little box office discussion, and a look at Paul Feig's spoiler-heavy discussion with Empire Magazine.
Join us this week as we crack open the Proton Charging vaults for a chat with Intercontinental Wrestlemania champion and fellow Ghosthead, Zack Ryder! All the news that's fit to print is up first, Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II get a 4K release on UHD, some Ghostbusters (2016) notes including clarification on the trailer everyone saw before Batman v. Superman. Then stay tuned for Chris chatting with the champ himself. Grab a folding chair, foil your knuckles, and smell what the Crossrip is cookin!
