Ghostbusters Director Paul Feig Shares Ecto-1: First Look

by Anthony Wetmore (@TheMisterPipes, GhostConch)

Jumping off the last post, here is the first look at the updated Ecto-1 for the coming Ghostbusters film starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig. Director Paul Feig (@PaulFeig) tweeted this photo with the hashtag #whattheygonnadrive earlier this morning and upon request also provided a rear view as well, also pictured here sporting the ever familiar logo.

What are you all feeling about the new Ecto-1 look? Personally I feel it captures the look, heaviness and reality this new Ghostbusters film needs to take off beyond being just another cash grab dip into the nostalgia pool. We lose the classic Cadillac look. Gone are the fins for a fresh yet retro inspired take on the Ecto-1. Time will tell if there is any irony to be found in it’s very clear hearse turned ‘buster mobile style. Perhaps Feig is intending to wink harder at death and comedy with a keener eye.

How do these shots of the Ecto-1 make you guys feel? Let us know if you’re just as excited as we are. Furthermore, who ya gonna call?!

Previously we’ve had glimpses of the cast in their every day attire. Then we had a solo glimpse of the suit. Finally, here’s a cast member in the suit! Minus all the obvious, necessary gadgets, of course.

What do you guys think of the new suit?

Pee-wee’s Big Holiday Gets a Release Date

by Anthony Wetmore (@TheMisterPipes, GhostConch)

From the mind of Paul Reubens, everyone’s favorite manic Child-man, innocent and always growing much like his audience. Reubens went on to craft what is arguably one of the most recognizable and beloved characters of children of all ages. 

From his time in the Playhouse to his stint in the Circus, Pee-wee Herman has been delivering the absurd and sometimes blue laughs for going on nearly 40 years. Birthed as a character from his time with The Groundlings, Pee-wee has come a long way and become so much larger than he began. Forever linked to red bow-ties, “If you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?!, and Tequila by The Champs, Pee-wee isn’t done yet! 

Coming off an extended hiatus, a healthy Twitter presence (@peeweeherman) and a few stray appearances on various television mediums, Pee-wee comes back with another feature length premiering on Netflix March of 2016. 

Early next year, we will finally re-join Pee-wee in his next adventure Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, directed by Judd Apatow (Freaks and Geeks, Walk Hard) and written by Reubens himself with Paul Rust (I Love You Beth Cooper, Inglorious Basterds, Comedy Bang! Bang!).

The film plot is vague as of now but what we do know is Pee-wee meets a mysterious stranger and this inspires him to take his first holiday and have what promises to be an ‘epic story of friendship and destiny’.

Again Pee-wee’s Big Holiday premieres March 2016 on Netflix

New Photo From BATMAN V SUPERMAN: Dawn of Justice

by Joey Pedras

Entertainment Weekly released this new photo of our Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) having a conversation of sorts. Dressed to the nines in what one only could assume is Wayne Manor.

Not much context was given with this photo, unfortunately. Bruce, and Diana seem to be having a lovely chat, and maybe a dance. Possibly a low point from the film? Who are we kidding though? I doubt there’s going to be any low points. This scene is probably rife with Bat-drama. What are you two scheming?
