This week we celebrate a little bit of both in Murray's honor. In addition, the latest news: Playmobil sneak peeks, Ghost Corps releasing assets for the fans to get creative, Japan's killer three-disc release of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, and a little bit of Halloween recap. Plus, listen at that half hour mark for some of your voices!
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.

Troy has a cold, Chris sounds like he's been on a convention exhibit hall floor all day, hey bud, let's podcast! Stick with us through our dedication to bring you quality Ghostbusters programming on a weekly basis despite the quality of our voices because there's a whole lot going on - the return of Ecto-Cooler, Anovos pre-orders, everyone and their grandma (except us) got a set visit and their embargoes were lifted which means there's a lot of new Ghostbusters (2016) news and photos out there. And hey, we HAVE to talk about that new Japanese Ghostbusters single that debuted this week. Grab the NyQuil and let's do it!
Can you believe it's been eight whole episodes since our last proper Crossrip? Just a couple things going on. So join us for the first proper flagship show since episode 208 back in February as Troy and Chris catch you up on all the news that's fit to print. First up, some discussion on both the domestic and international trailers for Ghostbusters (2016), including a dissection of both trailers by the director himself in Verge and Empire Magazines. Paul Feig talked Ghostbusters on the Ellen Show and The Nightly Show with Larry Willmore chatted the newest controversy that has been surrounding the film. The viral marketing campaign begins with the Kenneth Higgins Institute, while Ecto Cooler prepares for its triumphant come back. Michael K. Williams talks his scenes with Slimer... oh, and the in-development Ghostbusters animated film has a new director! So much to catch up on, it's going to take an hour and a half to do it all, so get ready!
Catch up on all this week's news and listen to an interview with the newly engaged couple: Craig Goldberg and Abigail Gardner, who spent February 14th watching the trailer announcement - and having Ivan Reitman help them start the journey of marriage! But before we get into their story, let's catch up a little with the response to the 3/3/16 trailer announcement including a news item featured in the Wall Street Journal. There's still plenty of Toy Fair information that Troy and Chris haven't explored including Mr. Potato Heads, Trading Cards, Retro Fast Food Glasses, Proton Packs, and oh yeah - and the reveal of two potential villains. Spoilers ahead, beware. As if that weren't enough excitement for one episode, we buried the lead -- Ecto Cooler might be back (and you might be able to use it to wash down Ghostbusters-themed Twinkies). So sit back, relax, get informed, then have that cold cold heart of yours warmed with the tale of two fools in love that got a little help from Ghost Corps this Valentine's Day.
