New Ghostbusters teaser trailer

Ecto-1 Returns in Teaser for Secret Ghostbusters Movie

Trailer teases the return of the Ghostbusters with a malfunctioning proton pack and a rusting Ecto-1.

A new Ghostbusters is coming in 2020! It was announced this week with the arrival of this short but effective teaser trailer. It’s an eerie night and spine-tingling music from the original Ghostbusters score is playing as the camera moves past a fence dripping with ectoplasm into an creepy barn where we hear the sound of proton pack that won’t start. And then the wind blows up a tarp to reveal a rusting Ecto-1.

The new film is being directed and co-written by Jason Reitman, the son of Ivan Reitman who directed the original Ghostbusters.

“I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set. I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans,” Reitman told Entertainment Weekly. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ’80s happened in the ’80s, and this is set in the present day.”

 

The new Ghostbusters is set for a summer 2020 release.

McJesus Sculpture Sparks Outrage and Protests in Israel

Israel’s Arab Christian community is protesting a sculpture of a crucified Ronald McDonald.

Christian Arabs in Isreal are protesting Ronald Donald crucified on a cross The Washington Post reports. The sculpture, named “McJesus,” is on display at the Haifa Museum of Art. It is meant to be a “critique of society’s capitalistic culture,” museum officials said, but to the hundreds of protesters demanding it be removed, it is seen as insensitive to their religion and offensive.

Protesters have been holding peaceful rallies, candle vigils and painting crosses on street signs, but last week there was a riot in which rocks and a firebomb were thrown at the museum.

McJesus has been on display since August and viewed by over 30,000 visitors to the museum, apparently against the wishes of its creator. Finnish artist Jani Leinonen says he wants his sculpture removed from the exhibit.

The museum refuses to remove the piece, saying it would undermine freedom of expression. But they did hang a sheet over the entrance to the exhibit and put up a sign stating that McJesus is not meant to be offensive.

“This is the maximum that we can do,” museum director Nissim Tal said. “If we take the art down, the next day we’ll have politicians demanding we take other things down, and we’ll end up only with colorful pictures of flowers in the museum.”
