New Press And Personal Ghostbusters Photos Added

outsidesedgewick

Two new Press photos and one Personal photo from Ghostbusters™ have been added to their respective Photo pages. Ghostbusters Incorporated sends a special thanks to Columbia Pictures, owned by Sony Pictures and Beyond The Marquee.

The photo above comes from part of what became the montage. The scene was part of a longer conversation with the media and a way of free advertising. Below is part of the “cut” scene when a “street punk” is bothering Egon.

SPENGLER

He’s confused by all the commotion and the barrage of questions from the press. A STREET PUNK in the crowd behind the police barricades keeps hissing at him.

STREET PUNK

Mister!  Hey, Mister!  Come here!  Mister.

He finally gets Spengler’s attention and waves him over.

STREET PUNK (CONT’D)

Hey, Mister!  Can I see those guns?

 SPENGLER

They’re not guns.  They’re particle throwers.

STREET PUNK

Yeah, yeah.  I just want to see ‘em.

SPENGLER

I couldn’t do that.  You might hurt someone.

He turns away.

STREET PUNK

Wait!  Wait!  Let me ask you something.  If you like shot Superman with those guns, would he feel it or what?

SPENGLER

(with authority)

On Earth — no.  But on Krypton we could slice him up like Oscar Mayer Bologna.

STREET PUNK

Wow!

Los Angeles Times On Ghostbusters Still Saving The World At 30

billdanharoldernie

The Los Angeles Times wrote about Ghostbusters,™ speaking with Ivan Reitman and Ernie Hudson as Ghostbusters celebrates its 30th Anniversary.

Excerpt from Ivan Reitman:

There was very little expectation of the movie by all prognosticators, there were prognosticators in 1984, even though there are far less than there are now,” he said, laughing. “It was one of those movies that was pretty low on the focus list.”

Excerpt from Ernie Hudson:

I was doing a play on Broadway six or seven years ago, and guys would put on their Ghostbusters suits with their backpacks and traipse across New York and wait outside the stage. I was in the South of France, and there were Ghostbusters chapters all through France and Italy.

Chapters? Are we not a global corporation? ;)

The full article and interview is on The Los Angeles Times site.

Comic Book Resources Interviews Ernie Hudson

gozerooftop

Comic Book Resources (CBR) interviewed Ernie Hudson about Ghostbusters, its 30th Anniversary, and “Winston Zeddemore’s” future.

Excerpt:

It’s so cool, because I don’t think the studio really supported the movie, but I think the fans have really come out. There’s a Ghostbuster chapter – several Ghostbuster chapters – in every major American city and all over. I was just in Ireland, and 50 guys in there in their jumpsuits and backpacks, and they turn their cars into Ecto-mobiles. In France, in Brussels – It’s really a phenomenon, and the fans love it. People are watching with their children, and so it’s great! I’ve done a lot of movies and done a lot of television, but it’s one of those things that people really respond to, and I’m just very honored to have been a part of it.

Excerpt:

I’d love to see Winston, the character, kind of become the director of global Ghostbusters – because now there are Ghostbuster chapters all over the world! I’d just love to be a part of it, love to see it happen.

We’re not sure how long its been since Ernie Hudson spoke to Winston Zeddemore, Winston (or Z as Dr. Stantz calls him sometimes) is an executive within Ghostbusters Incorporated and has helped train recruits or rookies in the last decade.

From Richard Roy

Ernie Hudson most likely wasn’t aware of this, I use to be the Director of Operations until 2014. One day this year because it made sense at the time for a post I wrote I was the Chief Operating Officer. Which kinda makes sense. Winston having that title either within the company or something that allows for more character growth would be great. Within the realism the Ghostbusters and Janine Melnitz have been my bosses since the beginning.
