As #GhostbustersWeek begins, we're looking at the home stretch in which questions will be answered as many continue to discuss Ivan Reitman's 1984 GHOSTBUSTERS vs Paul Feig's 2016 GHOSTBUSTERS. Having loved the first two films (indeed, I enjoy 1989's GHOSTBUSTERS II) and not yet seen the latest, what I can say is that there's plenty of room for both the old and the new - men and women alike. On the pop-fashion front, designer DoOomcat is celebrating both crews - the men of '84 and the women of '16 - with a pair of t-shirts offered via my ally, TeeFury: Old Guard and New Guard.

It's #GhostbustersWeek...

Hi-C Ecto Cooler (1987-2001, 2016-?) is an absolutely legendary beverage. Back in the late 1990s, when I met the girl who would eventually become my wife, I would drink Ecto Cooler seemingly by the gallon, right alongside another creation of The Coca-Cola Company - SURGE. Following the triumphant, fan-led return of the latter beverage back in 2014, Ecto Cooler officially started hitting the streets again this past May, the idea being that the drink, spawned from the success of THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS cartoon series (Slimer once adorned the packages) and which maintained a preseence on store shelves nearly a decade past its run, would once again reign supreme as audiences prepared for the release of Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS: ANSWER THE CALL on July 15th. Indeed, Ecto Cooler is back! But can you find it?

On July 15, Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS hits theaters, and as the film picks up steam, more GB-goodness has been oozing out like Ectoplasm upon the masses. Today comes another piece of the film's original soundtrack, "Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid)" - an update to Ray Parker Jr.'s classic GHOSTBUSTERS theme, this time performed by FALL OUT BOY featuring MISSY ELLIOTT. While I dig the tune, I'm partial to some other GHOSTBUSTERS covers out there (to be fair, this is more "inspired-by" than a direct cover), many of which I've written about in the past - including those from the likes of MELO-M, HOOBASTANK and LEO MORACCHIOLI.  With #GhostbustersWeek coming to THE ROCK FATHER Magazine next month, you can bet we'll have a playlist in order. Check out FALL OUT BOY's new jam below!

Confession: I and my children have never played LEGO Dimensions... not even a demo, and for whatever reason, despite all of my LEGO coverage, it just hasn't happened. While my interest was piqued last year, we missed the first go 'round of the LEGO entry in the "toys-to-life" aisle, but with today's news that may have to change... LEGO Dimensions just grabbed my retro-loving heart. This Fall, the call is to "Go Bigger," and that means new characters spanning new franchises, many of which are completely unexpected. From a LEGO "Tom Cruise" as MISSION IMPOSSIBLE's Ethan Hunt to characters from ADVENTURE TIME and the forthcoming GHOSTBUSTERS reboot, the 80s are well-represented with E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, THE GOONIES, GREMLINS, BEETLEJUICE and THE A-TEAM, and the biggest one for me... a set from the greatest television series of all-time: KNIGHT RIDER! While there's no pictures available, you can pretty much expect a LEGO Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff) and K.I.T.T. to compliment the just-revealed B.A. Baracus (Mr. T) and GMC Van from THE A-TEAM. But that's not all that's coming to LEGO Dimensions...

32 years ago today, GHOSTBUSTERS premiered in theaters, winning audiences and creating a global fandom that will last for eternity. With Ivan Reitman's 1984 original film returning to theaters tonight for a special engagement via Fathom Events, and Paul Feig's all-new GHOSTBUSTERS tale arriving on July 15, Sony Pictures has declared today GHOSTBUSTERS DAY... something I can fully support, especially as a teaser for what's coming... July 10-15, 2016 is #GhostbustersWeek here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, but for now it's GHOSTBUSTERS DAY! Let's kick it off with the new song by ELLIE KING, "Good Girls," from the GHOSTBUSTERS Original Motion Picture Soundtrack...

Only July 15, Sony Pictures will bring filmmaker Paul Feig's new vision of the GHOSTBUSTERS to the big screen, and today a new trailer for the film has arrived... and it's a good one. Despite all the remakes, reboots, reimaginings and whatnot that have come along in recent years, the 'net crowd has thus far treated GHOSTBUSTERS unusually (and unfairly) harsh in recent months, fueled largely by the first trailer, which confusingly did have a "30 Years Ago..." tag, despite the fact that this GHOSTBUSTERS film and the 1984 classic are not connected from an "in-world" standpoint. Personally, I think the movie looks fun, and I'm looking forward to seeing it. Check out the new trailer below, and be sure to keep your browser pointed toward TheRockFather.com/ghostbusters for a special content hub that will soon emerge ahead of a #GhostbustersWeek Event coming to the site in July!
