Bill Murray Reportedly Shreds ‘Ghostbusters 3’ Script; Or, Your Favorite Wild Rumor of the Day

Who you gonna call? Not Bill Murray, if this ‘Ghostbusters 3’ tidbit from the Enquirer (via CinemaBlend) is to be believed (and it probably isn’t). Bill Murray was supposedly so displeased with the latest script for the long-in-the-works sequel that he shredded it and sent it back to Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd with a note stating, “No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!” It has long been reported…

Why Isn’t Ryan Reynolds a Bigger Star?

Why Isn’t Ryan Reynolds a Bigger Star?

In family cartoon “Turbo,” opening July 17, he’s the voice of a super-fast snail with dreams of hot rod racing. And in action comedy “R.I.P.D.,” based on a comic book, he’s a rookie in a department for undead cops who partners with grizzled…

The 20 Funniest Female Comedy Teams in Movies

Buena Vista Remember how 2011’s “Bridesmaids” was supposed to usher in a new era of female buddy comedies? Didn’t really happen, did it?

But then, that’s always been the case. The female duo or ensemble drama is rare enough, but comedies centering on two or more prominent women are rarer…

Matt Damon and Cameron Crowe React to New Yorker ‘Zoo’ Diss

New Yorker critic David Denby didn’t just piss off Sony and David Fincher with that embargo-breaking ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ review. He also managed to ruffle Cameron Crowe and Matt Damon’s feathers in his dismissive explanation about why he wanted to feature ‘Dragon Tattoo,’ over, say, Crowe’s new movie, ‘We Bought a Zoo.’ “What to put in the magazine on December 5? Certainly not ‘We Bought the Zoo,’ or whatever it’s called,” Denby told…

Is ‘World War Z’ Star Brad Pitt a Secret Zombie?

Alamy Is Brad Pitt really the right guy to take on a global zombie epidemic in “World War Z”? Sure, he’s got leading man and action hero credentials, not to mention a handful of Oscar nominations that suggest he’ll be convincing at playing a guy fighting off the undead. Still, based on his filmography, shouldn’t we be a little suspicious? Judging by the roles he’s played, couldn’t he be a secret zombie himself? That’s right:…

Superman Movies: Why Is It So Hard for Hollywood to Get the Man of Steel Right?

Warner Bros. It’s not hard to imagine the executives at Warner Bros. looking at a chart of Marvel’s successful superhero movies over the last decade and a half — including five “X-Men” movies, four “Spider-Man” films, three “Iron Man” smashes, plus successful franchise-launchers “Thor” and “Captain America” and massive group hit “The Avengers.” Then, the Warner suits look at the same period’s superhero smashes based on characters from Time Warner’s own venerable DC Comics publishing…
