Paul Feig Tweets Photos of New ‘Ghostbusters’ Uniforms and Proton Pack

By

It’s Manhattan, you want to look your best, but you also need to be practical and factor in the occupational hazard  of being covered in slime. So, the dark grey, no-frills jumpsuit it is. Paul Feig (who’s directing the upcoming female Ghostbusters remake) shared a picture of the new team of said busters’ (Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones’) uniforms, as well as the  the latest “proton pack”, which looks possibly even more rustic than its first iteration, invented by Dr. Egon Spengler.

Watch: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman Puzzle Over a Murder in ‘Secret in Their Eyes’ Trailer

By

You may be puzzling over a remake of the 2009 Argentine film (which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film) Secrets in their Eyes. Now with the first trailer, you can feel united with the film’s characters, who are also going through a serious bout of befuddlement: of course, as in the original, their form of confusion is over the details of a specific murder, while yours may be more generally over the prolonged death of originality in American cinema.

The 5 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘While We’re Young,’ ‘Danny Collins’

By

For my money, the biggest event of the week, new release-wise, is the long, long, long-awaited DVD/Blu-ray unveiling of the Decline of Western Civilization trilogy, but let’s not downplay the rest of the week’s crop. Over on Netflix, we’ve got a solid documentary on a musical legend; Criterion has a new edition of a deliciously odd Czech classic; and two of the spring’s most interesting indies arrive on Blu-ray, along with a surprisingly moving Al Pacino vehicle.

Those Bastards Will Remake ‘Back to the Future’ Over Robert Zemeckis’s Dead Body

By

A few days ago, Vox’s Todd VanDerWerff tweeted, “We should probably thank the gods there’s not a new Back to the Future coming this fall, with Marty’s kid traveling back to 1985.” It’s the kind of a perfect tweet/encapsulation of the industry at this moment, inasmuch as it’s a terrible idea that any studio executive would greenlight in a New York minute.

Chris Farley Joked, Kanye Rapped, and Shia LaBeouf Attempted Something in Between: Links You Need to See

By

Chris Farley was known for his hilarious portrayals of the likes of an energetic motivational speaker, a Chippendale’s dancer, a lunch lady, Jerry Garcia, Meat Loaf and Newt Gingrich on SNL; he’s also known for having died — like SNL cast member John Belushi — at the young age of 33 of a drug overdose. A trailer for the new documentary I am Chris Farley has surfaced today, and the film seems to look deeper into the potentially destructive weight of sudden fame coupled with an insatiable desire to entertain (via the accounts of other comedians like Mike Meyers, Adam Adnsler, Bob Odenkirk, Bob Saget and David Spade).
