While I can’t confirm either chain didn’t have movie t-shirts for walking human billboards up to my employment, we occasionally promoted movies and snack brands by wearing buttons.

Going into 15 years later Cinemark employees won’t need a button or a candy brand to promote Ghostbusters (2016). Continue reading

The Star Tribune out of Minnesota reports that a “Minnesota development group and Sony Pictures Consumer Products” are building an indoor amusement park. Which will have character themed “activities and experiences.”

The theme park is scheduled to break ground during Summer 2016 and is scheduled to open by the end of 2017.

Where will this pretty cool place be built? Will we need a passport? Continue reading

Mattel Ghostbusters 2016 Prototype Figures

In November 2015 Sony Pictures VP of global consumer products, Mark Caplan talked about (Ghostbusters International Blog Post, November 11, 2015) Ghostbusters merchandise in the coming year. Naturally this includes the upcoming Ghostbusters 2016.

Figures from Mattel are forthcoming. Ghostheads didn’t quite know what the “new” team would like in toy form, until January 7, 2016.

Paul Feig, the director of Ghostbusters (2016) tweeted:

Our Mattel 6″ prototypes.
