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!
This week on the Crossrip, we're so excited to have author and screenwriter Ernest Cline on the show! With Back to the Future day in the not-so-distant rear-view mirror, new Star Wars and Ghostbusters on the horizon, and Ernie's adaptation of "Ready Player One" about to begin production, it's only fitting that Troy and Chris get a little time to talk to the owner of the Ecto-88 himself. Hear about the inspiration for his unique Ectomobile, his future projects and a little discussion on programming the perfect Halloween double-feature. All that plus the latest news including a Toys R Us LEGO leak, Zoobe add-ons, and Michael C. Gross receiving a lifetime achievement award. This Halloween week, who're you gonna call for all the latest in Ghostbusters and pop culture? (Hint: this podcast.)
Troy and Chris needed a little help. Superstar guitarist Phil-X sent out a photo to the masses regarding his recent purchase for Ghostbusters (2016) and it all read a little bit like Greek to them, so they called in the big guns: journalist Dan Amrich joins the Crossrip for this episode to talk video games (Ghostbusters: The Video Game, Puzzle Fighter and more) as well as give his professional analysis of Phil-X's highly-elaborate Instagram message to the fans that may or may not debunk the Crossrip theory that a new Ghostbusters theme song may have already been recorded.
Time to catch up on a WHOLE lot of news over the past week! Zoobe has a Slimer app that lets you put your voice in his mouth, IDW teases the Sandman (and Chris teases Troy with his Sandman impression), Melissa McCarthy is going to sell a Ghostbusters line of clothing, a metric-ton of Ghostbusters (2016) production news including photos from Paul Feig, Chris Hemsworth and Melissa McCarthy, and a slight correction on our reporting for the LEGO Dimensions Ghostbusters tie-in. Oh yeah, and that big spoiler about a cameo that leaked? We're not going to talk about it, but we're going to talk about how we're not going to talk about it. Crazy, huh?
