CULVER CITY, Calif., May 14, 2019 — The once-in-a-lifetime Ghostbusters Fan Fest presented by Wizard World just got a little more special with today’s announcement of the first-ever panel featuring the directors of all four of the franchise’s feature films. Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989)), Paul Feig (Ghostbusters (2016)) and Jason Reitman (Ghostbusters (2020)) will join to discuss the franchise on the main stage as a prime feature of the blockbuster event, Saturday, June 8 on the famed Sony Pictures Studio Lot in Culver City, Calif.

The creator of “Freaks and Geeks” and director of Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy and A Simple Favor, Feig has produced, directed, written and acted in films and TV series for more than 30 years.
In addition to participating in the panel, Feig will greet fans, pose for photo ops and sign autographs during the Fan Fest.
This week, the first (Ghostbusters International Blog Post, March 3, 2016) Ghostbusters (2016) international (as in world, not the site) trailer was unveiled by Sony’s international branches and partners. At first sorta, as the Ukraine/Russia version wasn’t suppose to be out on the interwebs. It was taken down and if it hasn’t been released yet, it will be in due time. That didn’t stop ghostheads and other sites from taking screen caps. Why would we need more screen caps? This first international trailer featured additional footage. If you didn’t get a chance to view it and in case its also in other international trailers we won’t quite spoil it. Think Marvel’s Thor and concert venues.
On this promo page for Ellen Degeneres Show we can see that Ghostbusters (2016) first trailer will make itsworld premiere. With at least special guest Kristen Wiig. We would also think Paul Feig. We don’t know for sure as sometimes interns aren’t where they’re suppose to be.
If you aren’t familiar with the channel and time for Ellen Degeneres Show, their site has additional information.
Ghostheads have been waiting for a trailer for Ghostbusters (2016). On the eve of the world not ending Ghost Corps shared the first teaser trailer and announced on March 3, 2016 we’ll see the trailer.
Thirty years after the original film took the world by storm, Ghostbusters is back and fully rebooted for a new generation. Director Paul Feig combines all the paranormal fighting elements that made the original franchise so beloved with a cast of new characters, played by the funniest actors working today. Get ready to watch them save the world this summer!
The tease really is a tease. If you didn’t know it was Ghostbusters related and their was no Ghostbusters wording, including the logo, we would think this was some kind of serious police action movie.
Columbia Pictures/Sony Pictures Digital Productions Inc. have redesigned Ghostbusters.com. The last major redesign was during GHOSTBUSTERS™ 30th anniversary in 2014.
Naturally the redesign highlights the upcoming Ghostbusters (2016) with standard cast and crew information. As of this posting, an in movie synopsis hasn’t been included. Perhaps after the first Ghostbusters (2016) trailer is released. Speaking of which, Paul Feig tweeted:
In November 2015 Sony Pictures VP of global consumer products, Mark Caplan talked about (Ghostbusters International Blog Post, November 11, 2015) Ghostbusters merchandise in the coming year. Naturally this includes the upcoming Ghostbusters 2016.
Figures from Mattel are forthcoming. Ghostheads didn’t quite know what the “new” team would like in toy form, until January 7, 2016.
Paul Feig, the director of Ghostbusters (2016) tweeted:
A drawing of the New Ghostbusters cast is part of the New Yorker‘s daily cartoon. I guess the envelopes are pay checks or maybe instructions to their Sony employers on how to make a good Ghostbusters film. 😀 Stay-Puft looks in shape, ready to travel to Hollywood. :p
