It’s October and that means is Halloween Month! We kick off this spooky month with an in-depth discussion on the Ghostbusters franchise! We talk the original two films, the cartoons, 2016’s Answer the Call, and next year’s Afterlife!

Before that, we talk the latest news in entertainment including Netflix cancelling Glow, Nick Fury getting his own Disney+ series, Jamie Foxx returning as Electro for Spider-Man 3, and the massive upheaval with WB’s release schedule following the delay on Bond 25 and the closing of Regal theaters in the US.

Ghostbusters (2016) Review

For our 30th episode, we review the new Ghostbusters (2016) movie with tons of spoilers! We talk casting, plot, writing, special effects, cameos, and more! Finding out what we liked about the Ghostbusters reboot plus what we didn’t. The film is in theaters now and stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth, directed by Paul Feig, from Columbia Pictures.

In its opening weekend, Ghostbusters (2016) pulled in a little over $46 million domestically with a $50 million 5-day haul, coming in second to The Secret Life of Pets. We talk about how the box office timing could hurt the film and whether or not its box office haul is due to the movie itself, competition, or the press leading up to the film’s release.

Ghostbusters (2016) Review

Ghostbusters (2016) Trailer Reaction

This week is our first reaction episode. We sit down and watch the new Ghostbusters trailer live on the podcast and then break down our thoughts. We discuss what the trailer does for the upcoming film, including thoughts on humor style, special effects, music, and casting choices. We also talk about whether the earlier parts of the trailer imply that Ghostbusters is not a reboot but actually a long-lost sequel to the original 1984 film.

We even took questions from our live internet audience! How?

Well, to add to the fun, this is the first time we also hosted a Twitch live stream of us recording the podcast! That’s right, for the people who follow us on Facebook and Twitter, they were altered that they could join us on our Twitch channel to ask questions and watch us live! This something we’ll continue to do, so hopefully you’ll join us next week!

We also announced that this is the LAST episode of Screen Heroes to be dual published on the Grid Talk RSS feed and that Grid Talk is returning this Friday in a new format that will also include live streaming! So, stay tuned and join us Thursday night for a live recording of a new episode of Grid Talk!
