We’ve already heard that the remaining Ghostbusters from the original movie, Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd and Ernie Hudson will be making cameos in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. Now it looks like another original Ghostbusters cast member will also be joining the production. Earlier today, director Paul Feig revealed one more.
Earlier this week, Thunder Road Pictures confirmed that John Wick 2 was to start shooting this fall. However it looks like not all the key players are coming back to the sequel. Our very own Steve “Frosty” Weintraub is reporting that his sources are saying that Chad Stahelski will be directing the sequel by himself and co-director of the first film David Leitch will only serve as Executive Producer on the movie.

Hi guys. I was interested to hear you talking about how Everest had been a success on its opening weekend due to its revenue per screen calculation. My question is – are there any films in recent times that have not been a blockbuster, but has a brilliant revenue per screen record? Thanks guys.

Greetings collider crew! Been watching your videos since the bring on the filthy days.
I’ve noticed you guys and other critics say things like, “the first act of the movie was good but…” or “the final act blew my mind away!” My question is, what describes the first, second, third acts…or however many acts are in a movie? How do you know what falls into each act? Thanks.

Hey Collider crew love the show and watch it every day. Keep up the great work.
My question is regarding the budgets for TV Shows / the quality of some TV Shows. Many people think that some TV shows have a good enough budget / story to become Movies. Do you think TV Shows should try to put out a movie based on the show? I know some TV shows like Doctor Who have put out certain episodes in theatres and they have done well so do you think they should try to put out a move? I would love to hear your opinions on this topic.
