I finally got my case of Ecto Cooler and yesh. It tastes like watered down OJ. I guess your tastes really do change the older you get.

I've been drinking it. It's pretty good if you like a little bit of water and food coloring with your sugar.

A couple high-profile merch launches today:

How does an online exclusive "build a bear" work? Isn't the fun of build a bear to go to the mall and do it yourself?

I like it. I saw Titanic and some others.

I'll say this much: the original feather-ruffling trailer for this (the one with the "four friends" text) played in front of Alice Through the Looking Glass at my theater, and it got a pretty reputable round of laughs out of the audience.

This looks like a SNL version of Ghostbusters...Oh wait...

I think it will end up being better than all the hate it's getting.

The new Ecto-1 passed through my neighborhood last night on its way to some kind of promotional thing. Not super excited for this movie, but not going to lie, that was pretty awesome. Wish I could've gotten my phone out to take a picture in time.

Didn't care much for the hearse clip. Murray has a lot of positive things to say.

Either Murray is lying out of his ass or the movie might be okay. I'm surprised he would show up to promote it.

I know this will be discounted because of my past comments about the movie, but Bill Murray has never struck me as someone who wouldn't do exactly what he wanted to do when he wanted to do it. Especially these days. He's certainly not beholden to any studio. My assumption is that he's being genuine here.

I lean towards lying out his ass. I also think it might be a case in which he's just happy to see someone else do another Ghostbusters movie so people will stop asking him about doing Ghostbusters 3.

He just worked with McCarthy, so I don't think it's too crazy to believe he thinks highly of her and/or is helping her out.

He'd already suggested her as a Ghostbuster before she was cast, and he'd also praised her work on their previous project long before Sony would have been pressuring him.

Murray's admiration for McCarthy is legitimate.

Bill Murray sounds as convincing as Donald Trump and that clip from the film was atrocious.

Wasn't Sony threatening Bill Murray with a lawsuit if he refused to be involved with this?

EDIT: Yup found it https://wikileaks.org/sony/emails/emailid/104704

She's busy never starring in another Alien movie, except Alien 5 which she is excited to be in since it is a sequel to Alien 2, making it Alien 3, as it reboots Alien 3 and Alien 4 which now never happened ... except it may not be Alien 5 since there is another sequel to the prequel to Alien, even though the prequel isn't really a part of the Alien universe which it leads directly into.

As much as I still think this looks bad Murray isn't the kind of guy who will just go along with what he's told to do I don't think. He very much strikes me as a beats to his own drum kind of guy that doesn't give a damn about playing nice for appearances. Then again I also think he buys into his own hype a bit too much at times so it's hard to really read him. He's definitely been in his share of questionable films fairly recently.

To be fair the two previous Ghostbusters soundtracks are full of atrocious music too.
