They weren't afraid of no sequels… until now!

When Ghostbusters hit theaters last month, executives at Sony were confident that a sequel to Paul Feig's all-female reboot would be inevitable.

But since the film was met with a lukewarm box office performance and just fair-to-middling reviews, the studio has kept quiet on if it was still launching a live-action Ghostbusters universe as planned.

As of August 7, the Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy led film earned just under $180 at the worldwide box office.

And though the action-comedy has still yet to open in a few countries, experts say it will have a tough time getting

We definitely know who we're gonna call now!

5 Seconds of Summer just dropped the hair-raising music video for their new song Girls Talk Boys — and we can't get enough!

Since the funky track is coming off the Ghostbusters soundtrack, it's no surprise that the boys strapped on their jumpsuits and proton packs for one ghastly video!

Though unlike the high-budget reboot starring Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, 5SOS's ghost-hunting footage is pretty amateur — but that doesn't mean we wouldn't give the Aussie rock band a call to bust some ghosts.

Actually, these boys clearly don't know what they're doing, so we'll stick to the professionals in the film instead.

It's a great time for women in film… but it's about to get even better!

Despite the unnecessary misogynistic hate, the Ghostbusters reboot is getting pretty decent reviews — and the Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig comedy is just the start of female-led reboots!

With Sandra Bullock starring in an all-female Ocean's Eleven, it looks like studios have finally caught on to the creative and financial opportunities in making gender swapped reboots from old classics.

So, we decided to come up with a few more iconic male-led films that we'd LOVE to see rebooted with a female twist!

Ch-ch-check out our list (below) to see which actresses we'd love to see in remakes like Fight Club, Reservoir Dogs, The Sandlot, and more!

When Kristen Wiig isn't battling spooks, specters, and ghosts in her upcoming flick Ghostbusters, she makes sure to stop by The Tonight Show — but always in character!

From Harry Styles to Game Of Thrones — which she's never seen — Kristen is never herself!

On Wednesday night, the 42-year-old was supposed to appear on Jimmy Fallon's show to promote her new spooky comedy, but instead came out in FULL character as The Bachelorette's JoJo Fletcher! LOLz!

We're not sure if the Saturday Night Live alum has ever seen an episode of the reality show, but it sure didn't seem like she had to improv her way through the interview which she ended with a song!

Watch the HIGHlarious interview (below) and Wiig does her best to get through it without breaking character!

Ghostbusters Review Roundup — Funny Feminist Action Or Flimsy Fan Service??

| Filed under: Film FlickersKristen WiigChris HemsworthMelissa McCarthySony

no title

The new Ghostbusters surely ain't afraid of no ghosts… but should they be afraid of film critics??

After getting an unnecessary amount of flack from self-appointed protectors of the original film and misogynistic Internet trolls, the highly-anticipated Sony reboot is finally hitting theaters this weekend!

To the delight of its defenders, the Paul Feig comedy is scoring generally positive early reviews — but that's not to say the gender-swapped reboot didn't have any ghastly misfires.

Even the critics who praised the film's heavy laughs and action agreed it suffered the overbearing presence of the original 1984 film — and sacrificed good storytelling opportunity for fan service. (Way too many cameos!)

Some critics also noted that leads Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig didn't have the same magic as they did in past Feig collabs like Bridesmaids and Spy — but the presence of Leslie Jones and scene stealers Kate McKinnon and Chris Hemsworth made up for the lull in chemistry.

All in all, the reviews say audiences can expect a summer blockbuster full of spooky fun with a side of girl power — but maybe not much that's going to stick with you…

Cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria!

The new Ghostbusters flick starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones is still a month away from opening, but it's already received quite a bit of backlash… and the women aren't having it anymore!

The GB cast members already appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week to SLAM misogynistic trolls, but they're not stopping there as they recently did an interview with Entertainment Weekly where Wiig dished:

"You can't get better than the original. But it's a different movie, it's a different cast, it's many years later, and we've also done things that are different. It's not just about it starring women."

Jones then chimed in, saying:

Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, & Leslie Jones Destroy Misogynistic Trolls With The OG Ghostbusters — Watch!

Who you gonna call? Why, the original cast, of course!

There's only about a month until Ghostbusters gets rebooted with an all-female cast, which means there's less time than ever for misogynistic trolls to judge the movie before even getting a chance to see it.

Luckily, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones don't seem too annoyed by their haters… because they know they're really just 45-year-old men living in their parents' basements! LOLz!!!

The Saturday Night Live regulars stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday to chat about the upcoming horror/comedy, and ended up getting a surprise of their own when the OG 'busters joined them onstage!

During the eight-way interview, Bill Murray, Annie Potts, Ernie Hudson, and Dan Aykroyd officially gave their slimy blessing to the ladies while admitting they were a little nervous about the remake themselves at first.

We can't imagine Bill saying he found the new film to be funny if it really were a dud… so we can't wait to see it when it possesses theaters July 15!
