Fall Out Boy - Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid) (Audio) ft. Missy Elliott

The new version of the iconic Ghostbusters theme song by Fall Out Boy and featuring Missy Elliott has been released, and, er, well, its been released:

Check out the press release below:

#Ghostbusters (2016) Character Vignettes

Each of the new Ghostbusters, including Ecto 1, has received their own introductory video, meaning fans received a ton of new film footage, along with details about the characters and the plot, plus a preview of the updated theme song by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott!


We know that Abby (Melissa McCarthy) and Erin (Kristen Wiig) used to be partners, with Abby still believing in their work but Erin leaving to teach at Columbia. Abby publishes their book without Erin's permission, Erin visits Abby, sees a ghost with her, and ends up believing again. And, as in the original Ghostbusters, loses her place at Columbia in the process.

We also see Patty (Leslie Jones) join the team because of a ghost encounter of her own, and that her knowledge of New York and its history is important. The final piece is Holtzmann, who is clearly the engineer/inventor of the group. But other than her being weird, we still know nothing about her background or why she’s on the team.

Kobe Bryant Cameos in #Ghostbusters Reboot NBA Tie-in

To celebrate the its all-female Ghostbusters reboot opening on July 15, Sony has unveiled new Ghostbusters spots featuring popular basketball stars!


The new series of promotional spots were launched during Thursday night's Game 1 of the NBA Finals on ABC between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. East Coast audiences saw an ad featuring current New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis alongside legend Walt "Clyde" Frazier and the team's most visible fan, Spike Lee. That ad was shot at an empty Madison Square Garden. And on the West Coast, viewers watched a spot featuring recently retired Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant decked out in the famous Ghostbusters jumpsuit at his former home, the Staples Center.

"Everyone wondered what Kobe would do after the NBA," said Josh Greenstein, president of worldwide marketing and distribution for Sony Pictures. "Now we know - he's a Ghostbuster."

LEGO Ghostbusters Movie

Paul Feig's Ghostbusters won't start haunting theaters until next month, but here's the next best thing (or the best thing, depending on which fan you talk to): a Lego remake of Ivan Reitman's iconic 1984 comedy!

In a dazzling display of Internet fandom, the family-friendly team behind Digital Wizards Studios pooled together "$100,000 of Lego bricks" and spent "2,000 hours over the last five months" to bring everyone to Spook Central.

The end result is something that's best described as "adorable." In a little under five minutes, the clip manages to capture the most iconic beats of the legendary film, making for one stunning sliver of pop culture. How they handle Venkman's epic line to Peck is something that'll tickle every punmaster.

Oh, and here are a few fun facts to put their grand ambition in perspective: 1. The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is played by a 10 year old, 2. The video features five of the most valuable Lego sets …
