As everyone knows, those geniuses at Pixar can take any object -- a bug, a fish, a mouse -- and animate it to make it look human, with a voice and a personality to match.
And of course, don't forget cars. Pixar's 2006 "Cars" was the studio's first movie to star entirely inanimate objects, and the gamble paid off with a booming box office, Lightning McQueen lunchboxes and pup tents, and kids clamoring to see the movie fix, six, twenty times.
"Cars 2" is about to hit theaters, but we're hungry for even more anthropomorphic vehicles -- and so we started wondering what other cars Pixar could animate (maybe for the next sequel?). What would the Landspeeder from "Star Wars" look like in a Pixar movie? Or "Transformers" scallywag Bumblebee? Get More »
Have you ever wandered into your grandma's house and, among the endless array of dusty knick-knacks, worn out dedicates and gaudy antiques, thought "Ferris Bueller would fit in great here?"
If so, thank goodness! We knew we weren't the only ones!
"It's hard to split up 'cause there are two. My first one, because I grew up a dancer and I didn't know any better, was 'Staying Alive' with John Travolta. I didn't even know what 'Saturday Night Fever' was, I just knew 'Staying Alive' and I just wanted to be in that show at the end.
"The other for me is 'Ghostbusters.' I thought 'Ghostbusters' was a perfect comedy movie. It was a perfect blend of heart and comedy; it was scary at times, it was fun at times.'"
The new comedy "Take Me Home Tonight" celebrates the 1980s and all its excesses, from Mercedes-worship to Frankie Goes To Hollywood telling us all to relax.
The '80s was a time of rampant materialism and mohawks, and the only way people got through it -- like WWII -- was with laughter.
In honor of Topher Grace's nostalgic comedy, we're celebrating the 25 most-uniquely only-in-the-80's comedies, the ones where the hair was froofy, Eddie Murphy still brought the funny, and the geek inherited the Earth. Get More »
It might seem wrong, if not downright heretical, to alter anything "Ghostbusters"-related, but sometimes it's too catchy not to share.
YouTube user Alex Fruen (discovered by the super-sleuths at Moviefone) is apparently a big fan of cheesy music, as the film's theme song -- a classic, horrific reminder of 1980s synths -- gets mixed with Lady Gaga's "Love Game," arguably one of the poppiest songs of the decade.
On paper, it's suspect. But one listen shows the track's eternal catchiness (at least until tomorrow when another mashup takes its place).
Hopefully, we'll now see a new "Ghostbusters"-related outfit on the next Gaga tour complete with slime and an "Ecto 1" replica. Get More »
Anna Faris ain't afraid of no ghosts, but that doesn't mean she's going to be getting her hands messy with ectoplasm any time soon.
Back in November, the fabulous funnylady was rumored to be trying on a khaki jumpsuit to join the long-awaited "Ghostbusters 3" alongside Will Forte and Bill Hader, as well as former 'busters Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and (fingers crossed!) Bill Murray. Alas, the whispers were only that.
"I wish I could confirm that," she confessed during an interview to promote her new film, "Take Me Home Tonight." "I am not attached -- it's a rumor that's flying around."
However, she's totally game for the gig. Get More »
We thought we were "Inception"-ed out after Christopher Nolan's mindscrew inspired countless reams of parodies, mashups and analyses.
But you know our rule: If it involves Bill Murray and is even semi-clever, we shan't waste a second getting it up on the site. Watch as Zack Hemsey's "Mind Heist," the music playing behind the "Inception" trailer, transforms Ivan Reitman's playful comedy into a gravitas-heavy melodrama. Get More »
It appears "Ghostbusters III" will be a go and we can expect Venkman, Stantz and Spengler back in action (as well as a new younger troupe at their side) within a couple years.
We know that isn't very comforting to superfans, who have been waiting over 20 years for another sequel. But hey, at least the buildup should spawn lots of great "Ghostbuster"-based humor and parody videos.
We scour the interwebs for the coolest movie news and more so you don't have to.
