A new Ghostbusters movie is headed our way in 2020, and it will be set in the world of the original Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989). It is being written and directed by none other than Jason Reitman (Up In The Air, Juno), son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman.
A teaser video for next year's film, which has been worked on in secret, was revealed to Entertainment Weekly, and while the video is short, it does give us some idea as to what this movie may be about. You can check it out for yourself below.
We see a lonely barn in the middle of the night, and there's a light coming from inside of it. We zoom in on the barn, and there are some familiar sounds, including that classic Ghostbusters' score. There's something under a tarp, and the wind blows it off revealing a beaten up and tad rusty Ecto-1.
The PlayStation Network winter sale had a good and surprisingly lengthy run, but now it's finally ended. The new crop of deals is significantly less robust, but there are still a few bargains that may be worth your while. Plus if you're looking for new dynamic themes and avatars, hoo boy!

Dragon Ball FighterZ's season pass wrapped up back in September with the release of Android 17, but it appears that a new DLC character is on the way to the fighting game. Ahead of the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals this weekend, Bandai Namco teased that "the Warrior from Universe 11 is joining the fight."
No further details about the upcoming DLC character have been revealed yet, but Bandai Namco is presumably referring to Jiren, one of the Pride Troopers hailing from the aforementioned universe and the most formidable foe Goku and his companions faced off against during the Tournament of Power in Dragon Ball Super. The publisher says it will reveal more information during the World Tour Finals, which take place on January 26-27.
If Jiren is indeed added to the roster, he would mark the ninth DLC character released for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Bandai Namco hasn't teased if any other additional fighters are also planned for the game, but this does open the doors for a second season of DLC, which hopefully means there's still a chance Master Roshi can join the fight.
The success of last year's Karate Kid spin-off show Cobra Kai showed that YouTube Premium was becoming a major player in the ever-evolving world of streaming. The next big show to hit the service is the dark teen comedy thriller Wayne, which hits the service today, January 16. An exclusive new clip has been released.
The show features rising star Mark McKenna (Sing Street) as the titular Wayne, a troubled 16-year-old who hits the road with his friend Del to get back the 1978 Pontiac Trans Am left to him by his dad from some very bad people in Florida. In the clip we see the Trans Am in the wrong hands, plus Wayne and Del getting in the way of a very large truck. Check it out above.
Wayne also stars Ciara Bravo (Big Time Rush, Red Band Society) as Del, plus Joshua J. Williams (Cloak and Dagger) and Mike O'Malley (Glee). It's created by Shawn Simmons and produced by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who are best known for writing both Deadpool movies, as well as the horror comedy Zombieland. They are also working on Zombieland 2.

Relentless absurdity and hyper-stylized action have been core tenets of the No More Heroes series. It never cared for making much sense and instead embraced its own ridiculousness with bold self-awareness, a staple of director Suda51. The slimmed-down hack-n-slash spinoff, Travis Strikes Again, hits many of the same notes, but not as hard and with varying degrees of success. Its combat is frenetic, but well worn toward the end. Its story and style is unique, but thin in crucial moments. Its humor lands in spots, but not quite with a punch. But despite a middling delivery of what past games have done, there's fun and charm packed into Travis Strikes Again, and if anything, it is a great example of local co-op action on Switch.
Hitman creator IO Interactive has opened a new studio in Malmo, Sweden, the company has announced. The developer says the new site will "strengthen IO Interactive's commitment to deliver exceptional content to the Hitman franchise," though it also hints at other projects in the works.
“Furthermore, this will expand our muscles for creating brand-new and exciting endeavours, new universes, new franchises," said IOI CEO Hakan Abrak. "In other words, IOI Malmo and [existing studio] Copenhagen are one family."
As yet there's no clue what IOI is working on beyond additional Hitman 2 levels and missions, though it has previously stated it wanted Hitman (2016) to consist of three seasons of content. The studio is primarily known for creating and developing the Hitman franchise, but it has also worked on the Kane & Lynch series and the 2003 shooter Freedom Fighters--though it should be noted the studio does not own the latter two brands.
A major new exhibit about The Lord of the Rings and its author J.R.R. Tolkien is opening at a New York City museum this month--and it sounds like a can't-miss event for fans.
The exhibit, Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth, celebrates Tolkien and his work. Said to be the largest collection of Tolkien material assembled for several generations, the exhibit includes drawings, manuscripts, and maps that Tolkien himself put together for The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion.
The exhibit will also contain illustrations that Tolkien etched for places like the gates of Moria, Sauron's fortress at Barad-dur, and Lothlorien.
The untitled Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel has added yet another big name to its cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lethal Weapon actor Danny Glover will appear in the movie, joining other newcomers like Danny DeVito and Awkwafina. All of the major stars of the first movie--The Rock, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Nick Jonas--are also expected to return for the sequel.
"From Awkafina to Danny DeVito to now one of my action heroes, Danny Glover--it's been awesome having so many actors and OG legends raise their hands wanting to come and play in our Jumanji universe," The Rock told THR.
In the 2017 film, Jumanji is a video game that teenagers in detention get sucked into. They then become new people in a jungle world, and it appears the sequel will do this all over again. For now, The Rock isn't giving away the details on who becomes who just yet.
Ariana Grande got a Pokemon tattoo. The 25-year-old pop sensation revealed her very large Eevee tattoo recently through her Instagram story. Additionally, tattoo artist Kane Navasard showed off the tattoo in another post on Instagram, writing that the ink was for "the best Pokemon trainer in the game, [Ariana Grande]."
It's a nice-looking tattoo. With colour it might have looked too flashy; the black-and-white style is more classic. You can see the tattoo in the image below.
For the best Pokémon trainer in the game, @arianagrande. For bookings, visit WWW.KANENAVASARD.COM #tattoo #singleneedle #losangeles #forthesinners #kanenavasard
