Beastie Boys Intergalactic “Ghostbusters” Halloween Mash Up is Awesome!

This Halloween mashup of the "Ghostbuster's" Theme and The Beastie Boys "Intergalactic" is one of the best we've heard!
Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

Perhaps one of the best examples of why a female James Bond film would not only work, but be absolutely amazing, is the Charlize Theron-starring “Atomic Blonde” film. It’s gritty darkly saturated Cold War-era stylization and top notch fight choreography (as well as some of the best theatrical needle drops in years) made it a spy film of epic proportions.

We revisit the apartment fight often, the absolute exhaustion of both Lorraine (Theron) and her opponents as they try to kill each other while taking hits its masterfully done from all angles; performance, design, execution, and delivery. It’s also one of the reasons we would absolutely LOVE to have a sequel.

As luck would have it, Theron says that quarantine has been sort of a blessing in disguise for those of us who want a follow-up film. While doing press for the recently released Netflix film “The Old Guard,” she told The Hollywood Reporter that work had begun in earnest on a sequel to “Atomic Blonde.”

THR: While (Atomic Blonde filmmaker) Dave Leitch told me that the ball is in Netflix’s court, is there any good news to report on the further adventures of Lorraine Broughton?

Theron: Yes, we’re in the development stages right now, and that’s the one thing that lockdown has been good for — being able to develop with writers over Zoom. So, we’re actively developing [an Atomic Blonde sequel] right now.


Theron followed this news up with a tidbit to TotalFilm, stating that Netflix was being courted to pick up the project.


Theron: “We took [Atomic Blonde 2] to them and Scott Stuber [Head of Original Films at Netflix] was really interested in it. We talked to him about it extensively, and we’re in the process of writing it right now. That character was set up in a way where she didn’t really reveal much of herself. So I feel like there’s a lot of potential there. The bar’s pretty high, but we’re excited about it.”


Atomic Blonde” was based on the graphic novel “The Coldest City,” written by Anthony Johnston and illustrated by Sam Hart, and the film was directed by David Leitch (“Deadpool“). If you’ve never seen the film, do yourself a favor and pick up the 4K here, you won’t regret it.

Also-also, check out this fabulous “Atomic Blonde” Lorraine cosplay our friend did at DragonCon in 2017. (Photos credited to Mary Anne Butler photographer and Vienna La Rouge, cosplayer).

Ok so yes, we’re REALLY hopeful Netflix moves forward with a possible “Atomic Blonde” sequel, that would be some really great news in an otherwise pretty horrible month.

We’ll let you know what we hear about this and other projects.
