According to Entertainment Weekly, the cast of villainous ghosts Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinon and Leslie Jones will have to take on and bust will include dead criminals from a variety of eras in the history of New York City, including Pilgrims, old-­timey sailors (friends of Mr. Stay Puft?), Revolutionary War spirits, and even a couple of zoot­-suited gangsters! However, it is not clear if there will be a head villain in charge of New York's shady spiritual past, like Gozer the Gozerian or Vigo the Carpathian from the first two movies.


That still doesn't give too much information, but director Paul Feig does suggest that a trailer may appear sooner than previously thought.

It was a citrus punch that had the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness, which was only elevated by its radioactive neon green hue. The flavor was sold until 2001—12 years after t…

UK star Mr. Blobby from BBC TV's Noel's House Party stars in his very own music video, which became Christmas Number One in 1993, thankfully beating Take That! Even though it's frowned upon now, the song and music video is a lot better than most other Christmas No.1's since then, especially the rubbish from Pop Idol, The X Factor, etc!:
