Some fans did not like the recent reveal of the new Ghostbusters car, a rebooted Ecto-1. So it's hard to judge how they'll react when they see the new motorcycle one of the girls rides in this all-new female reboot, which completely wipes away the history of the franchise, taking place in a world where the original Ghostbusters never existed. It makes sense that new vehicles would be introduced into this rebooted universe.
This ride has been identified as a Honda Scrambler. And if you look real close, you might get a little angry. Yes, that is the classic No Ghosts symbol painted on the side. But it, too, has been rebooted and instead of the classic ghost, it is a female haint. Don't worry, though. The recent Ecto-1 reveal shows that the classic logo is still in play, and adorns the side and back of the main vehicle. The original Ecto-1 was a retro-fitted 1959 Cadillac Professional Ambulance. It has been traded up for an 80s era Cadillac Superior Hearse. Though some balked at the change, it does make sense in honoring the original Ghostbusters decade.Read More
Late last month, director Paul Feig shared a first look at the new female Ghostbusters costumes, followed by a look at the new Proton Packs. Today, we finally get our first look at one of the new Ghostbusters actually wearing the retrofitted uniform. And it will do nothing for those who are already against this complete reboot of the classic 80s movie franchise.
Melissa McCarthy appears in the grey and orange jumpsuit, which looks incredibly baggy, and not all that special. This is meant to give the film a DIY vibe, as the lady Ghostbusters set out to create their own uniforms and tools in hunting down and capturing ghosts. You may notice that this version of the uniform doesn't have a name tag or iconic 'no ghosts' symbol associated with the original Ghostbusters uniforms. It that blasphemy?Read More

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage has signed on to join Melissa McCarthy in the upcoming Universal Pictures comedy Michelle Darnell. We first reported on this project back in January, when Universal set an April 8, 2016 release date. Melissa McCarthy will play the title character, described as "a titan of industry" who is arrested and sent to prison for insider trading. After her stint behind bars, she emerges ready to rebrand herself as "America's sweetheart," only to find that several people she screwed over aren't quite ready to let her off the hook.
No specific details were given for Peter Dinklage's character, but Variety reports he will play the main antagonist. Universal was trying to decide if a male or female actor would be the right fit for this role, since the studio was more interested in finding the right actor or actress who could "chew up every scene he or she is in." Universal was considering a wide range of candidates for the role, including Jon Hamm, Oprah Winfrey and Melissa McCarthy's The Heat co-star Sandra Bullock, before ultimately deciding on Peter Dinklage.Read More
