Dan Aykroyd is absolutely determined to make his own Ghostbusters sequel. Aykroyd did a round of interviews this week on The Howard Stern Show and Unmasked with Ron Bennington, and during both interviews he addressed the in-the-works Ghostbusters reboot by Paul Feig as well as his intention to move forward with a more "conventional" sequel to the original films.
"I've got three daughters, so I’m all for female empowerment," he said on Feig's all-women reboot, admitting that the franchise needed "a new engine, new exhaust, new steering." That won't, however, stop Aykroyd from making his dream "Ghostbusters universe" become a reality, especially in the form of [...]
Last year's hit film Neighbors starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron has a sequel in the works. According to Deadline, Universal Pictures confirmed today that Neighbors 2 is happening with Efron and Rogen both attached to star, and the sequel is slated for a May 13, 2016 premiere, two years after the US premiere of the original.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Christine Taylor has officially confirmed that she'll reprise her role as Matilda Jeffries in Zoolander 2 but was quiet on the details: "I can tell you that I’m involved, but that’s all I can say. I can tell you it’s happening, but I can’t tell you where Matilda’s at and where their relationship is at. It’s all top secret!" Stiller said in 2011 that the sequel will take place ten years after the [...]
Here's the latest trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 featuring Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke taking a ride into the future, getting into all sorts of hijinks, and freaking out over boobs.

Twenty years after the release of the original, the Farrelly brothers' Dumb and Dumber sequel finally debuts in theaters today. Currently earning an underwhelming 27% on Rotten Tomatoes, Dumb and Dumber To is raking in the kind of reviews one might expect from a sequel with leads that are now 20 years older: It's good for callbacks, cheap laughs, and "crotch-centric" humor, but don't expect it to surpass the appeal of the 1994 film. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels both get points from critics for embodying their silly '90s roles and carrying the film and Rob Riggle gets some love for his supporting double role, but [...]
