This week on the show, Ghostbusters II archival unearthed, Ghostbusters (2020) casting, technical talk and a Japanese cover of Hot Night, are you not entertained? First up, a recently revealed/unearthed UK entertainment program called Film Eighty Nine had a great Ghostbusters II segment which gets Troy and Chris talking about the past before they talk about the future. Then, in our Ghostbusters (2020) chat: Celeste O’Connor and Logan Kim have been cast as the last two of the group of four kids to star in the next film. What are their roles? We’re not speculating anymore, remember? But what we can talk about? The film is being shot on the Arri Alexa LF cameras. What does that mean? And just how many keys to the city does Ernie Hudson have (and why isn’t the answer all of them)? Then in the second half of the show, your voicemails and a special treat from our friend Naoki in Japan, a cover of “Hot Night” that came out in 1984!
This week on the show, wrapping up Fan Fest (sorta) with Troy and Chris’ thoughts on the event and their experiences as well as your voicemails about the weekend. First up, Troy and Chris do their best to recap the day(s) with some of the highs and lows, and some of the hopeful lessons learned by the Wizard World folks if they ever attempt another similar event. Then, in the second half of the show, listeners called in large numbers to talk about the convention and we have the first part of your voicemails. Next week, we’ll play those we weren’t able to get to, not to worry!
This week on the show, talking about a few Aykroyd Adjacent films, the recently hired Ghostbusters (2020) film crew, and more! First up, Troy just saw a movie that had somehow slipped past his radar in the 80’s and stars one of our favorite Ghostbusters actors. Next up, the latest rumor round-up on Ghostbusters (2020) including on-going casting chat. Then, an in-depth discussion on the film crew we do know has boarded the project including the new Director of Photography, Art Director, and Visual Effects Supervisor. Finally, some merch news including Funko cereal pre-orders - wait… pre-ordering cereal? We really are in the future.
Hide your wallets, it’s International Toy Fair time! This week on the show, the latest Ghostbusters (2020) news, and the late-breaking announcements we were able to talk about from Toy Fair in time for recording! First up, some discussion about an unconfirmed “exclusive” scoop about Ghostbusters (2020)’s production start date. Is there merit to it? Is there room for doubt? In fact, are we taking too many things at face value at the moment? The boys have an in-depth conversation (that’s awfully similar to one had three years ago at this point in the production timeline). The Ghostbusters social media account caused quite a stir, Troy and Chris will tell you why. And then some talk about the show-stopping reveal that’s more than meets the eye - an Ecto-1/Transformer has become reality.
This week on the show, continued discussion on the newly announced live-action Ghostbusters film and a chat about IDW’s latest comic release with the Sanctum of Slime characters! First up, the rumor mill has already started running full steam, Troy and Chris discuss (or don’t discuss) those which have merit and clarify the “confirmed” casting news that was quickly “unconfirmed.” Ghostbusters World has a tie-in with 7-Eleven in the Great White North, could it be a test for something larger on the horizon? And, in the second half of the show, more of your voicemails and a discussion on the one-shot comic released in celebration of IDW’s 20th anniversary.
This week on the show, remembering a fallen fellow fan, what’s the status of Ecto Force and a drool-worthy mancave. First up, now that a few logo explorations for Ecto Force have appeared online, what does that mean for the current status of Ecto Force? Then, Ernie Hudson talks about Stan Lee’s influence on his life, Ecto-Con 2020 is hitting Scotland, and while you’re there you should hit up a GB Fans user’s mancave for a round of Ghostbusters The Video Game. All that plus, your voicemails, Instagram messages and Michael Tanaka calls in to talk Crossing Over’s conclusion (*note: Michael Tanaka has not called in).
This week on the show, some wild speculation about Kevin Smith's secret project and Ghostbusters Crossing Over #6 discussion! First up, if you've listened to Kevin Smith's Fatman on Batman podcast recently, you may have caught onto some hints that Troy has read WAY too much into, then some news about Spirit Halloween stock, Ghostbusters social media really picking it up, an Ecto Cooler documentary in the works, Gravitas picks up a Bill Murray documentary, Paul Feig talks about his experience on the 2016 film and where sequels would have gone, Ghostbusters Live news, and an IGT giveaway. Then, in the second half of the show, analysis and thoughts on IDW's most recent installment of Ghostbusters Crossing Over!
This week on the show, discussing the Halifax commercial that bends space and time to insert a pitchman into the 1984 film and presenting the entirety of the Wizard World Chicago panel! First up in the news: Ghostbusters Dimension is leaving Madam Tussauds in New York City, Chris and Troy talk about the Halifax commercial which alters the 1984 film to sell contact-less credit cards, merch news including new offerings in card gaming and backpacking, and an update on Rick Moranis' first convention appearance in San Antonio. Then, in the second half of the show, our friends the Circle City Ghostbusters have been kind enough to share audio from Ivan Reitman and Ernie Hudson's panel at Wizard World Chicago. In the panel, they discuss the past, present and future of Ghostbusters and answer several questions from those in the audience.
This week on the show, some odds and ends that we've missed over the past week or so! First up, a little discussion on a Ghostbusters junket from way back in 1984, some social media chat (including the full Ghost Corps logo reveal), new Rubies offerings, updates on Wizard World conventions, an exploration on Vigo the Carpathian's influences, and a great story from the Circle City Ghostbusters about Ernie Hudson. Also, what's a thirst trap, and what does it have to do with Dan Aykroyd? Join us as a couple old guys try to figure it out.
This week on the show, Paul Feig wants another Call, Ernie and Ray chat, and Steve Johnson does a little nose candy. First up, Troy and Chris discuss the click bait du jour as Paul Feig mentions on the Simple Favor press circuit that he'd like to do another Ghostbusters film, what does it mean? Also, Steve Johnson got a little more ink this week because of his unorthodox inspiration for Slimer - a new revelation most likely to come in his next book. Rounding out the show is some discussion about Ray Parker Jr.'s podcast with Ernie Hudson and a couple shout outs to the Alberta Ghostbusters and the Ecto Force of Florida. It's a fun one, make sure to tune in!
This week on the show, Ghostbusters Day preparation, Playmobil promotion, and a WHOLE lot of personal appearance info for the cast of Ghostbusters. Bill Murray is cutting an album and crossing bridges, Ernie Hudson is going to Saskatoon, Dan Aykroyd is traveling abroad, Leslie Jones is hosting the BET awards, and the Circle City Ghostbusters have a pretty full dance card. It's the calm before the storm, join us won't you?
This week on the show, we're catching up on the last two weeks' worth of news! First up, Troy and Chris chat about Paul Feig's "Director's Series" at the Tribeca Film Festival, a ton of great Ernie Hudson news including an in depth interview he did with Blastr, music chat including the new IMAScore music at Heide Park Resort and a rare glimpse into the life of "Magic" artist Mick Smiley, and finally we're chatting a little print and things to read including an upcoming Ecto-1 Owners Workshop Manual with a familiar author.
This week on the show, it's the calm before the storm. This weekend is the International Toy Fair in New York, plus a whole bunch of news is on the horizon. So Troy and Chris take this opportunity to talk nerdy about Dana Barrett's apartment and how it may have fared after the interdimensional crossrip that occurred there. Are you legal required to tell a potential tenant that a building had a 50-foot marshmallow man climb it and two of its previous occupants were possessed by demonic dogs?
This week on the Crossrip, the latest news and the latest updates from Chris' basement project! First up, the boys are talking about the big Playmobil reveal and breaking down all of the sets that are up for grabs. Next up, a little discussion on the IDW Comics Ghostbusters Annual (it's out now!), Ernie Hudson's latest TV news, Motiongate gets a few Ghostbusters II characters, and some analysis on the Sony Pictures $1.3 billion "write down." What does that mean for the future of the studio and for the future of the franchise that we love?
This week we're celebrating the release of a new Ghostbusters film with coverage from the "slime carpet" in Hollywood, CA. In a recap of the live-stream feed that was featured on the Ghost Corps Facebook page, join Troy and Chris from the red carpet as they talk to Paul Feig, Katie Dippold, Kate McKinnon, Karan Soni, Bess Ross, Ray Parker Jr., Ernie Hudson, Chris Hardwick, No Small Children, and more! Special thanks to Eric Reich and Katie Lovick for all of their help and hospitality and for making this show possible... and to Ivan Reitman, sorry that we made you sound like a chipmunk on the livestream, we blame Facebook 100%.
This week on the show, we're joined by psychology professor and author of the Geek Handbook, Alex Langley. Alex joins us to chat a little about the in-world psychology of Ghostbusters (ie. the phrase "I ain't afraid of no ghosts" and how humor helps disarm stressful situations, why the hell do crowds gather around the hellmouth where the world might be ending?), then chats a little about the general social media response to the new Ghostbusters, the very polarized views, and introduces Troy and Chris to the concept of "weaponized nostalgia." We also talk with Alex a bit about the benefits and the detriments of having these extended adolescences, purchasing toys and playing dress up as adults. This is one you won't want to miss. Stick around afterward for the latest news including a Ghostbusters Day roundup, (sort of) results of the Loot Crate contest, Jimmy Kimmel guests both old and new in celebration of the new movie and Ghostbusters Day, Ivan Reitman on the KROQ Kevin & Bean show talking about Ghostbusters old and new, featurettes give us a better idea of the new Ghostbusters characters (and a taste of Fall Out Boy's new theme), new LEGO Dimensions packs announced including a Ghostbusters (2016) story, that plus a whole lot more on another jam-packed episode!
A ll'l news and then a Proton Charging archival interview with the one and only Don Shay, author of Making Ghostbusters! Here's what's on tap for this week's news: sending some well-wishes to "King of the Ghostbusters" Peter Mosen, a spoiler alert about the last day of production that we somehow avoided last week and now is common knowledge, at the same time production was out in NYC a familiar car paid a visit to the opposite coast at Mattel in El Segundo, CA. Then a little bit on IDW's Ghostbusters Get Real #4 and a tease about its trade paperback from Dapper Dan Shoening. And then the main event: Don Shay, one of the founding members of Cinefex Magazine and the author of Making Ghostbusters talking about the production of the original film in the context of its 30th Anniversary!
