This week on the show, Troy and Chris are catching up on the biggest news items of the past few weeks: Hasbro, Halloween Horror Nights, Cleanin’ Up the Town and more! First up, Chris is flying to Calgary, but not for the reason that you’d immediately think, he’ll be attending one of the first (finally!) screenings of the Ghostbusters making-of documentary “Cleanin’ Up the Town.” Then, the boys talk about the recent news that Hasbro is taking over the master toy license next year. What does it mean? What do they hope is in store? All that plus items on Halloween Horror Nights and more on this week’s show!
Troy's flying solo this week, so we have a short mini-sode for you on the Crossrip. IDW's Ghostbusters International is coming to a close, Ivan Reitman is out there running with the torch talking about the future of Ghost Corps, and there's a whole lot of Black Friday/holiday season sales and merchandise out there to be had for Ghostbusters fans. And we'll do it all under 15 minutes, now that's economy!
Your eyes aren't deceiving you, this is a third Crossrip in one week! For good reason though, as we have Anthony and Claire Bueno, the Director and Producer of the new documentary "Cleanin' Up the Town" on the show to talk about their film. Their documentary "Cleanin' Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters" is an in-depth an intricate look behind the scenes of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II that, as you'll hear in the interview, has truly been a labor of love for the last eight years. Anthony and Claire have been self-financing and self-producing the documentary during that time but need our help to cross the finish line so that we can all enjoy this special piece of film history. With just 11 days left in their Kickstarter campaign, there's a Ghostbusters movie out there that needs you, head to their site now to donate before it's too late!
We have a trailer! Well, a trailer FOR the trailer! We've got a special show planned for you to celebrate the Trailer Announcement that also just so happens to be on the date aliens in Paramus, NJ predicted would be the end of the world! Join Troy and Chris for a breakdown of the trailer announcement and perhaps some clues within for the future of what's to come. Then the boys will talk all the merchandise news that's fit to print because this week also is the New York International Toy Fair - Legos, fan clubs, Funko Pop Vinyls, there's a whole slew of good stuff coming that we finally got to see. Then, Cleanin' Up the Town's Kickstarter campaign happened in between recording sessions, and with it came a new trailer that the boys'll chat about. Also, great news out of Chicago as Second City has announced the Harold Ramis Film School opening in September, and there's a familiar name in charge of it. Finally, we'll get to everyone's fantastic (and fun) feedback to the Death and Taxes article discussed last week, including a guest appearance from the guys at Ghostbusters Resurrection. This is a CAN'T MISS episode of the Crossrip, especially considering the world might be coming to an end, join us for the last moments won't you?
