‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Won’t Be Released in China, Maybe Because of Ghosts, Maybe Not

Last year, Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak was denied release in Chinese theaters thanks to an old provision in the country’s censorship code, which bans films that feature cults and superstitious elements. It looks like a similar fate has befallen Ghostbusters, as Paul Feig’s reboot will not be hitting theaters in the world’s second largest film market. But it might not entirely be about that whole ghost thing.

New ‘Ghostbusters’ Troll Their Haters With a ‘Folk Lady’ Version of the Classic Theme Song

The cast of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters are set to appear on The Graham Norton Show on June 23, but a couple of clips from their delightful episode have popped up online, including one in which Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy — at Feig’s urging — perform their “folk lady” version of the classic theme song. As an added bonus, their sharply-dressed director gets slimed, straight-up Nickelodeon style.

That ‘Wicked’ Movie Finally Has a Release Date

If the time it’s taken for Universal to get their film adaptation of Wicked off the ground is any indication, then we could be waiting a very, very long time for a movie version of Hamilton (musical nerds, take heart: Lin-Manuel Miranda is filming his final performance). Today brings some long-awaited good news for fans of Wicked, however, as Universal has officially set a 2019 release date for the project. Grab your broomsticks, or whatever you need to rejoice properly.

Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter Join Female-Fronted ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ Project

Gary Ross’ female-fronted Ocean’s Eleven sorta-sequel-spinoff-whatever has started picking up steam, and in addition to confirming Cate Blanchett’s casting, the latest update adds two more talented names to the ensemble: Mindy Kaling and Helena Bonham Carter. The trio join Sandra Bullock in the upcoming project, which is being produced by original Ocean’s trilogy director Steven Soderbergh.

‘Ghostbusters’ Director Paul Feig Says the Sexist Backlash Has Been ‘Chilling’

It’s hard to believe that the great pop culture wars are being waged over something like female Ghostbusters, but here we are. In the year 2016, we’ve seen backlash over casting Idris Elba as the Gunslinger in The Dark Tower, accusations that critics were paid by Marvel to diss Batman v Superman, and, perhaps worst of all, outrage at Paul Feig for making a new Ghostbusters movie with women in the lead roles. You don’t have to look very far to find heinous comments about the reboot on the internet, but as you might imagine, Feig has seen some of the worst of it.

Cate Blanchett May Join Sandra Bullock in That Female-Led ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ Movie

We’re still not entirely sure what to call the new female-fronted Ocean’s Eleven movie, but whatever it is, it’s assembling some seriously great talent. In addition to Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence has been reportedly considering joining the lineup, while the latest name eyeing the sorta-sequel / Ocean’s-adjacent project is none other than the great Cate Blanchett — a name that would take this project from a curiosity to a must-see.

SNL: Fred Armisen’s ‘Dead Poets Society’ Spoof Is Weirder Than You Could Possibly Imagine

SNL vet Fred Armisen returned to Studio 8H this weekend to host the Season 41 finale, and as you might expect, things got pretty weird. In between delivering the longest, most delightfully strange monologue in recent memory and reviving a couple of fan-favorite characters, Armisen starred in this pre-recorded spoof of Dead Poets Society. Riffing on a 27-year-old drama is certainly unexpected, but not nearly as unexpected as what happens at the end of this thing.

Are You Ready For a ‘Benji’ Reboot? Good, Because You’re Getting One

If studio developments in recent years have taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected when it comes to reboots and adaptations. From upcoming movies based on video games like Centipede and Tetris to the Jumanji reboot, it’s as if studios are plucking titles from the Least Likely pile (where is my Easy Bake Oven movie already?). The latest movie to get the unexpected reboot treatment is Benji — you know, the feel-good doggy adventure movie from 1974, which many of you probably remember best from its near-constant presence on The Disney Channel in the ’80s and early ’90s.

SNL and Beck Bennett Prove That a Man With a Baby Body Is Better Than Trump

It has been way too long since Beck Bennett’s Mr. Patterson made an appearance on SNL, but the man-baby makes his hilarious return this week, transitioning from running an office to running for office — it really doesn’t take much to see how this sketch came to be, but it’s still absolutely delightful nonetheless.

Drake Has Beef With Everyone on SNL, Even the Cleaning Lady

Drake’s feuds may not be as legendary as some of his predecessors, but they have made for some juicy gossip fodder despite his typically pleasant demeanor. While hosting this week’s SNL, the rapper managed to start some beef with, well, just about everyone — from Pete Davidson to the impossibly sweet Aidy Bryant, and even the cleaning lady. Yes, the cleaning lady.

ABC Cancels ‘The Muppets’ After Just One Baffling Season

Despite an attempt to turn things around with a new showrunner in the middle of the first season, The Muppets hasn’t really caught on with audiences the way ABC had hoped. What once seemed like a surefire hit (it’s the Muppets!) turned into a bizarre experiment (it’s a meta-fake-documentary series!) before ultimately becoming an interesting failure (shrug emoji), at best. The short version: ABC has cancelled The Muppets after just one season.
