There’s a new *Ghostbusters* movie incoming, one that fills the boots of the titular paranormal exterminators with female ankles and has *Bridesmaids* and *Spy* director Paul Feig using his comedy experience to bring it all together. None of this is a problem, of course – anyone who declares that a female-led *Ghostbusters* won’t work is an idiot – but there could be a tonal issue with the reboot’s approach. The first cast picture from set shows Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in uniform, lined up, looking *bored*.
_How To Train Your Dragon_ is one of my favourite Dreamworks animation films. Actually Its my favourite Dreamworks film and one of the best animated films in recent memory. Naturally then, the sequel has me pretty excited.
There was so much material left on the floor during the editing of Anchorman 2 that they have actually released a second version of the movie with basically every joke replaced with an alternate take. Also, a boat load of bloopers, some of which can be seen here. Let’s watch!
_Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy_ was released in 2004 and, very generally, people I know tend to either love it or hate it. I fell pretty squarely in the “_love it_ camp but in reflection I could have easily gone the other way. You see _Anchorman_ was originally going to have a lot more going on. In fact there were so many different takes and removed sub plots that they were eventually assembled into a whole other film titled “_Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie_”.
Most of _Wake Up_ isn’t good and it’s easy to see why none of it was included in _Anchorman_.
I am telling you all of this because I really feel like _Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues_ could really have done with a bunch of stuff cut out.
Ben Stiller has adapted James Thurber’s _The Secret Life of Walter Mitty_ into a movie. In the story Mitty escapes his mundane life by constantly fantasizing. Looks like that’s going to happen here too, along with Mitty getting a real life.
