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. Stay tuned for news about how you can win a free limited edition Ghostbusters Loot Crate and then in our second hour, hear how a warehouse in Brooklyn was transformed for the ultimate Ghostbusters experience by the team at BBQ Films!
The 32nd Anniversary of the original Ghostbusters is upon us and there's lots to talk about both classic and new. Join Troy and Chris as they chat Fathom Events, the return of Ecto-Cooler and a discussion on how it still tastes (especially when combined with other mixers), Ghostbusters International #5 from IDW Comics, chatting about that second Ghostbusters (2016) international trailer, the four new leads from the 2016 film showed up on Ellen for an entertaining interview, we'll play you some of the highlights including casting, action figures, and Chris Hemsworth, discussion on the Empire Magazine articles and a few gems hidden within them (including the return of Ghostbusters: Hellbent?), National Tyre's contest to send folks in the UK to New York City, then a rapid-fire merch round-up with Macy's, Diamond Select, Ecto-Mini cheat codes, Cryptozoic, and much more!
Can Troy and Chris keep up with everything this week? We'll find out. This week talking about those two trailers, their exclusivity, and that new (kinda) subtitle "Answer the Call" plus some clarification as to why this might have been called Trailer 6. A little discussion about the six-minute review that's supposedly not going to lead to a review (but already was a review so, there's that). Matt Walsh talks very briefly about his role in the new Ghostbusters film. Soundtrack Talk - - News on Theodore Shapiro's Ghostbusters score coming in July as well as the RCA Soundtrack album closely following it - and will Ray Parker Jr. reprise his song? Will someone else? Activision video game details (including some discussion about it not being an online multiplayer). Ghostbusters Twitter emojis are live! Troy does a quick recap of the Nas Hstry event in West Hollywood - and the accompanying livestream that he jumped into. ThinkGeek has a statement for us to read about that awful t-shirt that happened to be missing a certain someone and doubled another. All that plus a merch round up on this week's show!
