Ghostbusters- Official Trailer

Having a gnarly apparition throwing up green ectoplasm all over Kristen Wiig’s scientist character, the first full scene of the Ghostbusters trailer, which arrived online Thursday, is full of slime and…more slime.  “We went right for the slime, and not just a little slime,” director Paul Feig tells USA TODAY. “It’s called ecto-projecting.”  This green-filled start was important for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot starring Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones (in theaters July 15). It pays tribute to the famous New York Public Library ghost scene from the original 1984 Ghostbusters starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. Switching from male to female Ghostbusters is a revive of the brand and gives Ghostbusters the opportunity to attract an even bigger audience.

But obviously, this Ghostbusters is entirely different.  “We wanted to plant a flag early. People don’t know what this movie is,” says Feig. “It’s a whole different team. But it’s kind of fun leading off with something iconic from the original.”  Feig, along with screenwriter Katie Dippold and producer Ivan Reitman (who directed the 1984 original), unveiled the trailer Wednesday to fans and media on the Sony Pictures lot. The trailer is promising and reminiscent of the iconic story yet with a updated spin and lots of good laughs.  Check the method.

Film trailers are always one of my favorite parts of the going to the movies.   Before any given movie, you get maybe 5 or 6 trailers, but thanks to a wizard known only as “The Sleepy Skunk” we get to see 285 of 2013’s best trails in less than 7 short minutes.  I have to say that as a movie buff, this video is by far one of the most impressive mashup videos I’ve seen in quite some time.  From action, to suspense, to romance, to fun, all bases are covered.  Try and see how many scenes from these trailers you recognize.  And spread the word on this one.  “The Sleepy Skunk” deserves his recognition for his editing skills.


The First Clip From Iron Man 3


Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

There have been bits and pieces of this clip in many of the trailers and TV spots for Iron Man 3, but now you can see the full clip below.
