Bright and early this Wednesday morning, Sony Pictures dropped a surprise trailer on us all and boy Ned Ryerson was it a doozy. So many great new images, the original Ray Parker Jr. theme song kicking in, and there's that whole subtitle "Answer the Call" debate that we have a little inside information direct from the source. But it is a roundtable, this isn't some goofball reaction video on YouTube. We've gotta talk shop about this, in a spiritual sense of course - and we've brought in the best of the best of the best by teaming up with the awesome team at the Yes Have Some Podcast to join us. It's two podcasts for the price of none (yay free) with this special Cylotron that brings Troy and Chris together with Craig Goldberg, Abigail Gardner, and Jacob Walsh to dissect this trailer from start to finish. So what're you waiting for? The apocalypse? Check it!
Hey, it's Monday - you know what that means: a new Crossrip! This week Troy and Chris catch up on all the news that's fit to print, chat Stern Pinball, and discuss their thoughts on Ghostbusters: Deviations from IDW Comics! First up: news on Ghostbusters (2016) and Kevin Smith's comments, Stern Pinball's big reveal, new LEGO Dimensions, Anovos teases more props, and more! Then an analysis of the very different Ghostbusters Deviations one-shot from IDW. Also the latest news on Karcher's power washer and Molson's new special brew... wait, what? This week's hashtags: #steaklicker and #masmalo
We're turning the airwaves over to you, the listeners this week to get your responses to the Ghostbusters (2016) trailer. People from all over the world called in, some as remote as Antarctica (no joke) to give their thoughts on the trailer, what they liked, what they didn't, things that they're nervous about, things that they're not. Plus a British guy tells Star Wars to get bent! It's a great group discussion from a wide variety of folks all over the world on this week's Crossrip!
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.
This week, the Crossrip remembers David Margulies ("Mayor Lenny Clotch") and catches up on all the news that's fit for another podcast. Trailer Watch 2016 continues as no Ghostbusters (2016) trailer is in sight, but there's a whole lot of licensing news to talk about including Mattel action figures, Rubies Halloween costumes and a big event that took place in London this past week put on by the Rocket Licensing folks. Sounds boring? It wasn't - a good chunk of new props/gear from the 2016 film was on display and Troy and Chris feel like speculating on everything we saw. Ghost Corps wants you to know that you'll be able to have a Lazer Aventura at a Six Flags near you (and wants your franchise patches for a brand new display in their shiny offices)! Want to see GB16 early? Make a bid on IfOnly's charitable fundraising effort for a private screening before anyone else gets to see it. Want to hear some anecdotes we never knew about Ray Parker Jr.'s iconic Ghostbusters theme song and the music video that accompanied it? ScreenCrush had a great article that the boys will discuss. All that, plus a couple hashtags to use in the weeks coming on an all-new Crossrip!
