Earlier today, original "Ghostbusters" cast member (and co-writer) Dan Aykroyd revealed some details about the proposed "Ghostbusters 3." The project is a thing that, not unlike ghosts, ghouls, and specters, has yet to produce concrete evidence backing up the fact that it actually exists (or ever will). Aykroyd talked about story details, and confirmed that, yes, it is unlikely that Bill Murray will be a part of the new project. Still missing: cast details, a release date, and confirmation that this isn't an elaborate figment of Aykroyd's imagination brought on by drinking too much Crystal Head vodka. Aykroyd told Larry King, on his "Larry King Now" show (via Bloody Disgusting), that "it's based on new research that's being done in particle physics by the young men and women at Columbia University," Aykroyd told King, who is almost old enough to play a mummy in the new movie. "Basically, there's research being done that I can say that the world or the dimension that we...
Filed under: Classics, Toys/Games Hot Wheels has rolled out a new series of die-cast toys aimed directly at our nostalgic hearts. The Retro Entertainment Series plucks iconic cars from movie and television past, shrinks them down to 1:64 scale and packages them up for your buying enjoyment. The collection includes machines like the 1932 Ford from American Graffiti and DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future to the Ecto 1 from Ghostbusters and The Bandit's '77 Firebird from Smokey and The Bandit. There's even a 1971 Plymouth Satellite from The Brady Bunch. All told there will be seven mixes, each with five distinct vehicles. The sets won't just be land bound, either. Hot Wheels also plans to produce a few aircraft, including the Island Hopper from Magnum P.I. and Cylon Raider from Battlestar Galactica. Awesome. If you want one, expect to pay around $3 for the privilege. Just be prepared for the quotient of badly-sung theme songs in your household to increase exponentially.Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment series memorializes your favorite Hollywood cars originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 12 Apr 2013 09:13:00 EST.

Filed under: Etc., Design/Style We enjoy highlighting artists who turn their brushes, lenses or whatever medium they fancy towards the four-wheeled things in life. San Francisco-based artist Sabrina Chun has done just that with her series called Blackprints: Car Designs Reimagined, which is currently enjoying an overabundance of funding on Kickstarter. In the series, Chun has taken eight iconic autos and created inverse black-and-white profile views of each. The cars include the Porsche 911, '67 Mustang GT500, Shelby Cobra, Lamborghini Countach, Volkswagen Microbus, Ford Model T and pop culture icons like the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters and the DeLorean from Back to the Future. The prints will be available in two sizes, mini (6x9 inches) and jumbo (24x38 inches), and they're printed on 80-pound card stock made of recycled paper using environmentally friendly soybean-based ink and solvent. What's more, this is some very reasonably priced art; a pledge of just $34 or more will get you all eight mini prints, while a pledge of $139 or more scores you all eight jumbos. If you'll indulge us donning our art critic hats for a moment, what we like about Chun's Blackprints is not only the fact that she's chosen eight excellent cars to feature, but the works will hang equally well on the wall of a garage or living room. They seem so simple, but you'll soon lose track of time staring at features you've never noticed before that only reveal themselves in the light of Chun's negative spaces.Continue reading Blackprints Kickstarter campaign looks to put profiles on your wallBlackprints Kickstarter campaign looks to put profiles on your wall originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 03 Apr 2013 14:15:00 EST.
