Pick a movie trailer, any movie trailer, and chances are you can find a video of someone reacting to it online. At least for the bigger movies. There’s no denying it: people love reacting to stuff and people love watching those people reacting to stuff.
With over 25.6 million views, you can imagine how many reaction videos there are for the long-awaited first trailer for the Ghostbusters reboot. Taking a quick peek at the trailer’s votes on YouTube, you can also deduce that the response has not been very good. To the tune of just over 450,000 negative votes to under 200,000 positive votes. We haven’t seen a reaction that bad since the Jem and the Holograms trailer, and this is on a much bigger scale.
But whether you loved or hated what you saw, it’s clear that folks were excited to see what the movie looked like. This includes none other than the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from the original Ghostbusters, who has his very own reaction video for the trailer. You can see how it went for ol’ Stay Puft below.
In honor of the 30-year anniversary of Ghostbusters, we’ll see the film’s return to theaters today for one-week-only, as well as an upcoming Blu-ray containing digitally restored editions of the film and its sequel packaged together in a DigiPak.
Funko Pop! has a bunch of Ghostbusters vinyl figures that I wanted to point out (and by point out, I mean, by for myself), including the insanely adorable Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!!! (Want, need, must-have!), Winston with the Ecto 1, a Battle Damaged Stay Puft, and a special limited edition 30th anniversary set.
The deal of the day over at RIPT Apparel today is for two Ghostbusters-inspired designs: “Uncle Venkman,” a tribute to Bill Murray’s character Dr. Peter Venkman (see image below) by Moysche and “I Destroy NY,” which features the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (see image above) by rbucchioni.
Both designs went on sale at RIPT today, Thursday, April 10, 2014, at midnight CST, and will continue for 24 hours from then, and once it’s over, it will not be sold on the site anymore.
The t-shirt is available in men’s (through 3XL), women’s, and youth sizes for $10 each. Kids sizes are $10 (Girls, Toddlers, and Onesies); Hoodies for $38 (in Men/Unisex sizes). See images on product page for shirt colors. You can also get the design on coasters for $25; prints 18″³x24″³ for $20 and 24″³x32″³ for $40; headphones for $40; laptop sleeves for $30-$40.

I swear to God, it’s like we get a new, awesome Ghostbusters movie every month! And Ghostbusters #4 is no exception. This month the boys in gray are up against the third minion of Gozer, and there’s only one person that can save the day!
I’m calling Erik Burnham out right now! I don’t understand how he can turn out such a high caliber book every month and not be writing more comics. I’m guessing that Burnham puked in the punch bowl at a Marvel/DC Christmas party at some point, thereby banishing his awesomeness from either of those companies. But, back to this issue…
‘Tis the season for your very best snowman art, and after the storm that bombarded many states recently, people are getting their icy cold geek on.
Someone somewhere decided to take advantage of the snow by doing something you’d think we would see a whole lot more often, but haven’t: a nice, big snowman version of the infamous Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters!
This bad boy looks like it wasn’t easy to put together, and it stands pretty tall. You can see for yourself by heading on over to the other side now!
