In celebration of Ghostheads' physical media release on Blu-ray (in stores and online now)! We're cutting into the feed to give you a bonus episode with a commentary to be played under the film with three members of the Ghostbusters of British Columbia. It's some serious Christopher Nolan-style Inception as you're able to watch a movie made by fans, for fans, that's ABOUT fans... with a fan commentary! Pick up your copy of Ghostheads today and give this commentary a listen for more insights. Wait for the sound of the chime to start the film and you'll be in sync with the crew!
This week on the Crossrip, the boys catch up on news including Ghostbusters Answer the Call's return to theaters over Labor Day Weekend and beyond. Hot Wheels announces eight cars while Cryptozoic cancels some of their wares. The biggest names in voice acting did a live read of Ghostbusters in Toronto - and at the same time, hundreds of Ghostheads gathered in Atlanta for DragonCon and its sister gathering the PKE Surge. Oh, and Troy won a PKE Surge award! All that plus a tribute to a fallen Boy in Grey from the Louisville Ghostbusters, Todd Harrison.
Ghostbusters: Answer the Call is out in theaters and we're back with our regular format after the couple week hiatus! You've been asking for it, so after we catch up with the news and hear Troy and Chris' thoughts on the new film. After the latest news on box office, next steps, multiple interviews, Ghostheads' release, an onslaught of new merchandise, and more - the boys chat about their favorite easter eggs, callbacks, and the pluses and minuses after multiple viewings of the film. Then stay tuned for YOUR voicemails in response to the movie and everything going on in the world of Ghostbusters fandom (which, as we all know, is quite a lot)!
This week, Troy and Chris have the latest Ghostbusters news and talk in-depth about the IDW Ghostbusters Annual. First up, everybody look under your seats, you're all getting trademarks! You get a trademark, and you get a trademark! And Ecto-Cooler gets a trademark (again), what could it mean? Troy and Chris do a little speculating. Then we explore Tom Rothman's comments at the Paley Center as read in The Hollywood Reporter. You know THOSE comments about the new Ghostbusters movie. All that plus a Ghostheads, Zoobe, REAL! and Hollywood Collectables update on the biggest Ghostbusters podcast since 1909!
The Interdimensional Crossrip remembers our friend and producer/designer on Ghostbusters, Michael C. Gross this week. Join us first for the latest news, including the final reveal of the ICE Arcade Redemption cabinet, details on Ghostbusters (2016) and some clarification on that whole "Slimer" issue that came up this week, Mental Floss' article on Vigo the Carpathian wrangler Glen Eytchison, an update on Ghostheads, and more. Then, we pay tribute to Michael C. Gross as Troy and Chris say a few words, let the man speak in his own words, and play trailer clips from a handful of the titles which Gross was responsible. (Show notes: for those curious, our interlude about a boy and a girl at the beach leading into our tribute is from the National Lampoon Stereo Test, an album given away with the magazine in 1974).
This week: our first Miller Time with a franchise! Troy and Chris sit down for beers with the Ghostbusters of British Columbia to find out what makes them tick in the first of what we hope are many more Miller Times to come. But first, some news including the OFFICIAL reveal of the LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse, a little chat on Ghostheads: The Documentary, Ivan Reitman's interview with Salon, and that bonkers Deadspin article on the man behind Vigo the Carpathian.
