Guys... this episode is ridiculously packed. This week, we're wrapping up all of this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con announcements, reveals, comments, questions, and more. Animated Movie in 2019? A live-action film coming in the near future? A Ghostbusters Answer the Call mini-series AND a TMNT/Ghostbusters crossover sequel from IDW? TONS of toys from Diamond Select. Blitzway's amazing 1/6 scale Ecto-1. Spirt Halloween costumes and proton packs...

This week on the show, we're giving you a two-hour stuffed episode to catch up on Ghostbusters Day 2017 and comments from Dan Aykroyd. You know, those comments. In the first half of the show, the boys talk excitement about the return of Bob and Doug (and Rick Moranis because of it) with a star-studded SCTV reunion fundraiser happening in Toronto, all of the Ghostbusters Day announcements that you may have missed in the chaos including Ivan Reitman's comments about the future of Ghostbusters, the reveal of Ghostbusters VR's second chapter, a slew of new merchandise and more. In the second half of the show, we unpack Dan Aykroyd's comments about Ghostbusters: Answer the Call on London's Sunday Brunch and the reaction those comments caused. Plus, we throw to your voicemails on the topic. Grab a snack, it's a long one!
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?
Troy's back this week (despite popular demand) so let's take the week before the holiday hiatus to catch up on all the latest news, plus a little walk down the historical memory lane.
