the keymaster ghostbusters

Time flies, and 2021 is almost over. The good news is that fall movie season  is very much underway with lots of big upcoming titles — Eternals   is finally here; so are Ghostbusters: Afterlife  and the Dwayne Johnson spy movie Red Notice . Some of November’s film releases may have more than a few chances of getting trophy nominations. I’m talking about Belfast , Spencer  and King Richard , but if you want to know more about the Oscars don’t miss our story on early predictions and frontrunner contenders .

November is also a great month for watching TV, especially during the long Thanksgiving holiday. John Cho stars in Cowboy Bebop , Hailee Steinfeld doubles in the last season of Dickinson  and the new show Hawkeye , and Michael C. Hall returns to his serial killer roots in Dexter: New Blood.

As usual, here’s our selection of new TV shows, returning series, films on streaming and titles you’ll only be able to watch in cinemas. And if you need even more watching suggestions, you can catch up on previously released titles with our recommendation lists for October  and September .

Some of November’s Most Anticipated New Shows

the keymaster ghostbusters

The Shrink Next Door  (November 12), Apple TV+: Call this your new excuse to watch Kathryn Hahn in action after WandaVision . This eight-episode limited series is inspired by true events and stars Will Ferrell as Marty Markowitz and Hahn as his sister, Phyllis. The series follows Marty as he starts seeing the psychiatrist Ike Herschkopf (Paul Rudd) and details how the relationship evolves into manipulation and exploitation on the doctor’s part.

The Wheel of Time   (November 19), Prime Video: Based on Robert Jordan’s fantasy series of books , this eight-episode first season stars Rosamund Pike ( Gone Girl ) as Moiraine, a member of the all-women organization Aes Sedai that can channel magic. Moiraine arrives in the small town of Two Rivers and ventures on a journey with five young women and men. According to prophecy, one of them could save humanity — or destroy it.

Cowboy Bebop  (November 19), Netflix: It doesn’t get cooler — or sexier — than John Cho ( Star Trek ) garbed in a bespoke double-breasted indigo blue blazer, slim pants and white shirt with the collar up. In this live-action adaptation of the anime series of the same name , Cho plays a space bounty hunter named Spike who joins forces with Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir) and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) to chase solar system criminals for money. The first season of Cowboy Bebop  has 10 episodes.

Hawkeye   (November 24), Disney+: Set in post-Blip New York City, this new Marvel Cinematic Universe show sees Jeremy Renner returning to his role of former Avenger Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye. In the six-episode series, Barton is prevented from returning to his family for Christmas due to a threat from his past. He’ll reluctantly join forces with the 22-year-old archer Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld).

The Beatles: Get Back  (November 25, 26 and 27), Disney+: The Lord of the Rings  and The Hobbit  director Peter Jackson isn’t famous for his ability to make short films. That’s probably why this started as a documentary feature and morphed into a six-hour docuseries. Get Back  takes the audience to January 1969 as the Beatles were writing songs ahead of their first live concert in two years. Jackson drew upon 60 hours of unseen Beatles footage that was shot over 21 days, as well as more than 150 hours of unheard audio.

Must-See Returning TV on Streaming

the keymaster ghostbusters

Dickinson , Season 3 (November 5), Apple TV+: All good things must come to an end, and we’re going to miss seeing Hailee Steinfeld playing poet Emily Dickinson. The 10-episode third and final season of Dickinson  — the show has made our list of the best TV in 2021  — will see Emily facing her most productive time as a writer as the country battles the Civil War and her own family is divided.

Dexter: New Blood  (November 7), Showtime: Technically this isn’t Dexter  season nine but a new and rebooted show. Dexter : New Blood  sees Michael C. Hall returning as our favorite serial killer. The show is set 10 years after the events of Dexter’ s finale when he drove his boat into Hurricane Laura. He’s been living under a false name in the fictional small town of Iron Lake, New York, and rocking the lumberjack look. The 10-episode first season also stars Julia Jones ( The Mandalorian ) as Chief of Police Angela Bishop and Dexter’s girlfriend, Jack Alcott as Dexter ‘s teenage son Harrison, and Jennifer Carpenter returning as Dexter ‘s sister.

Tiger King , Season 2 (November 17), Netflix: When season one of this true-crime docuseries first streamed in March 2020 it became a viral sensation — helped in part by the fact that half the planet was sheltering at home due to the pandemic. Prepare to be entertained by the feline owners again. “Old enemies and frenemies, including Jeff Lowe, Tim Stark, Allen Glover, and James Garretson return for another season of murder, mayhem, and madness. Thought you knew the whole story? Just you wait,” reads Netflix’s synopsis of season two.

Sony’s ‘Ghostbusters’ success shows a theater-only strategy can work

I ain’t afraid of no ghosts.

The pandemic and its logistical hurdles are still shadowing the results of Hollywood’s theatrical releases, but a recent box office win suggests the industry is entering a new phase. 

This weekend, Sony’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife , with an estimated budget of $75 million, pulled in a respectable $44 million at the box office, despite the fact that the film was only available in movie theaters. In contrast, Warner Bros.’ King Richard , starring Will Smith and simultaneously released in theaters and on HBO Max, only earned back $5.7 million of its $50 million budget.

The two weekend releases cater to somewhat different audiences but hint at the still tricky prospect of Hollywood’s hybrid movie release strategy, in which studios release a film in movie theaters and on streaming services on the same day.

Earlier this month, Disney veered farther away from its early pandemic hybrid strategy by releasing Marvel’s Eternals exclusively in theaters instead of simultaneously on Disney+ as it did with Black Widow this summer. That decision yielded a successful $71 million weekend box office for the little-known Marvel characters, compared to the much higher profile Marvel film Black Widow , which pulled in just a bit more for its opening at $80 million.

🎧 For more intel on box office hits, listen to the Quartz Obsession podcast episode on sequels. Or subscribe via: Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google | Stitcher .

At the time, the studio’s early test of the hybrid release strategy didn’t seem to damage Black Widow ’s revenue, but concerns around streaming cutting into profits led to a lawsuit and eventual settlement between the studio and the film’s star, Scarlett Johansson. The ongoing potential diminished revenue concerns around hybrid releases, as well as increased covid-19 reopenings, saw the studio modify its approach by releasing Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in theaters first in the fall, and then on Disney+ a couple of months later. The result was a strong $71.4 million opening weekend at the box office.  

“Debuting movies simultaneously in theaters and at home is devastating to our collective businesses,” Josh Greenstein, the president of Sony Motion Picture Group,  said during CinemaCon, an annual gathering of theater owners in August. “Our movies will be seen exclusive first in our movie theaters… Movie theaters and the theatrical movie experience will triumph.”

The path back to traditional theatrical film releases is beginning to emerge

As covid-19 concerns wane in some of the biggest cities in the US, Greenstein’s prediction appears to be coming true. King Richard was released in roughly 3,300 theaters, while Ghostbusters: Afterlife debuted in about 4,300 theaters. And while the former played in fewer theaters, Smith’s biopic about Richard Williams, the father of tennis stars Venus and Serena, had an additional 70 million (pdf) potential viewers through HBO Max. However, it’s not possible to know what real impact the HBO Max option had on the release since the streaming service doesn’t release its viewership numbers. 

Although it’s difficult to compare a tentpole franchise sequel like Ghostbusters to a dramatic, Oscar-nomination-bait release like King Richard , the success of Sony’s theaters-only release nevertheless stands out. And the studio plans to continue its “exclusively in theaters” strategy next month  Spider-Man: No Way Home is released.

Hollywood is cautiously testing reopening strategies, but keeping streaming close as an option 

Other theater-exclusive releases coming up this year include MGM’s House of Gucci , as well as Disney’s West Side Story  and The King’s Man  in December. Disney’s announcement of a return to theater exclusives came in September following a rocky period of experimentation during the pandemic. Similarly, Warner Bros. plans to return to theater-only releases starting in 2022, with its HBO Max service getting its films 45 days after theatrical release.  

“The U.S. government’s approval of vaccines for five- to 11-year olds and the reopening of borders to fully vaccinated international travelers are both important steps toward the recovery of our business,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek said during a conference call with analysts and investors earlier this month.

“We’re sticking with our plan of flexibility because we’re still unsure in terms of how the marketplace is going to react when family films come back with a theatrical-first window.”

Louis Tully emerged from the southern part of Central Park at the Merchant's Gate and entered Columbus Circle. Louis stated he was the Keymaster. A woman shrieked "Ah!" A man held her as Louis scampered by. A young couple left some money for the street performers at the U.S.S. Maine National Monument. One man danced as the others played their instruments. Louis stated "The Destructor" was coming then also called it "The Traveler" and "The Destroyer." He paused near the performers and looked around. A horse was heard nearby. Louis perked up and mistook the horse for The Gatekeeper. Louis approached a white horse attached to a coach and started talking to it. He introduced himself as Vinz Clortho, Keymaster of Gozer, Volguus Zildrohar, Lord of the Sebouillia . He asked the horse if it was the Gatekeeper. The Coachman got Louis's attention and remarked the horse pulled the wagon but he made the deals. He asked Louis if he wanted a ride. Louis's eyes flared red. He was clearly possessed by Vinz Clortho. The coachman was surprised. The horse turned and looked at Louis. His eyes returned to normal. Louis leaned in closer to the horse and told it to wait for the sign then all prisoners will be released. Louis ran off, plowing right through a woman's bags as she looked in a trash can. She yelled at him. Louis yelled humanity will perish in flame. He yelled for the Gatekeeper. The coachman remarked what an asshole he was.

A police sergeant knocked on the front door of the Firehouse. Janine Melnitz answered the door. She asked him if he was dropping off or picking up. The sergeant answered he was dropping off. She told him to wait just a moment. Janine closed the inner door. A paddy wagon was parked outside the Firehouse. A short time later, Egon Spengler came outside with Janine. The sergeant asked Egon if he was a Ghostbuster. Egon confirmed he was. The sergeant explained they picked up a perp but they had no idea what to do with him because Bellevue Hospital refused him and he was concerned about placing him in the lock-up. He knew about the Ghostbusters and figured they should confer with them. Egon agreed to weigh in. They walked over to the rear of the paddy wagon. Louis was in the van in a straight jacket. Louis wearily asked Egon if he was the Gatekeeper. Egon scanned Louis with the P.K.E. Meter and watched as the readings quickly surged. Egon turned it off and turned to the sergeant and suggested they better bring him into the Firehouse. The sergeant nodded. Janine wrapped around one of his arms as they walked back to the Firehouse. The officer inside and the sergeant lifted Louis, as he stood in place, out of the van. Janine told Egon he was so kind to take care of that man and called him a real humanitarian. Egon remarked he do not think Louis was human. Janine turned her head to look at Louis as they entered the Firehouse.

Egon interviewed Louis on the second floor. Louis was hooked up to Aura-Video Analyzer. The helmet he wore was once a normal colander. The screen displayed the image of a Terror Dog . Egon stared at the screen and turned it off. He asked Louis what he said his name was. Louis replied he was Vinz Clortho, Keymaster of Gozer. Janine looked at Louis's wallet and told Egon his name was Louis Tully and he lived on Central Park West. Janine held the wallet out to Egon. He took it and looked at it. Louis mimicked Egon and also extended his arm to take it. Janine offered Louis some coffee. Louis asked Egon if he did. Egon told him, "Yes, have some." Louis repeated what Egon said. Janine made a face and walked over to the kitchen area. Egon placed the wallet in a coat pocket and sat down. There was a lot of drinks and food on the dining table. A Wise Chips bag, a Perrier bottle, and a TaB can. Egon recalled Vinz talked about waiting for a sign and asked him what the sign was. Louis answered it was the coming of Gozer in one of the pre-chosen forms. He reminisced about some of Gozer's past conquests. There was the Rectification of the Vuldronaii , when the Traveler came as a large and moving Torb . Egon looked towards Janine. He also recalled during the Third Reconciliation of the Last of the Meketrex Supplicants, they chose a new form for him, that of a giant Sloar . Janine looked back at Egon. Vinz chuckled at the thought of how many Shubs and Zulls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of a Sloar that day. On the counter were boxes of Sunshine Hi-Ho crackers, Uncle Ben's, and Lays Potato Chips, Honey Oat cereal,and Multi Grain cereal at the end. More articles about the Ghostbusters were posted all around. Janine called Egon and gestured him to come over. The Cheez Its box was on the table near Egon. Egon excused himself and walked over to Janine. She told him there was something very strange about Louis. Louis sniffed a clear jar of popcorn as he rotated it. Janine admitted she was usually very psychic, and she had a terrible feeling that something awful was going to happen to Egon. Louis wiped his left cheek with a pizza slice. Janine revealed she believed he was going to die. She went into Egon's arms. He looked up and placed his right arm around her.

The phone rang. Louis jumped and looked around. Egon quickly picked up the phone. Louis picked up the base of the phone. Egon took it from him. The call was from Peter. Egon thanked Louis for his help. Peter announced he had some news from the world of Gozer. Dana was asleep on her bed but panting hard. Egon asked Peter what it was. Drawers were opened and clothes were all over the place. Peter informed Egon he was with Dana and Gozer made some moves on his would-be girlfriend. Egon asked how she was doing. Peter quipped he thought they could get her a guest shot on Wild Kingdom then revealed he just whacked her up with about 300 cc's of Thorazine. Peter was sitting on the floor of Dana's bedroom. His coat jacket was off and his sleeves were rolled up to his elbows. Peter noted she was saying she was the Gatekeeper and asked Egon if that made any sense to him. Egon revealed he just met the Keymaster. Louis lifted up the coffee pot. To the left was a small Folgers Coffee jar. Louis took a drink. Peter thought that was wonderful and they should get them together. Louis with his mouth full, made an odd but cheery face at them. Janine was now sitting next to Egon. Egon thought that would be extraordinarily dangerous. Peter relented and advised Egon to hold onto the Keymaster and he would head back to the Firehouse. Egon liked the idea and placed the phone back on the receiver. Louis walked over and gave Egon a frying pan. Egon thanked him then turned to Janine and stressed they needed to find Ray and get him back immediately. Louis picked up a lamp and gave it to Egon. Peter held Dana's left wrist and checked her pulse. Peter spoke to Dana like she was listening and declared he had to go to work. He asked her to stay in bed until he came back then kissed her left shoulder.

Ecto-1 drove through the FDR Drive Service Road East/Marginal Road, between Avenue C Loop/E. 18th Street & East 20th Street. Winston was driving. Ray was studying blueprints in the front passenger seat. Both were smoking. Winston asked Ray if he believed in God. Ray replied he never met Him. Winston revealed he believed and he loved Jesus' style. Ray noted a roof cap was made of a magnesium-tungsten alloy. Winston asked him what was so involved in. Ray reached for the Michelob can on the dash. Ray clarified he was looking at the blueprints for the structural ironwork in Dana Barrett's apartment building, and they were very, very strange. As Ray took a drink, Winston asked him if he remembered something in the Bible about the last days, when the dead would rise from the grave. Ray recalled Revelation 7:12 and recited a verse, "And I looked, as he opened the sixth seal. And behold, there was a great earthquake. And the sun became as black as sackcloth. And the moon became as blood." Winston finished with, "And the seas boiled. And the skies fell." Both called it Judgment Day. Ray noted every ancient religion had its own myth about the end of the world. Ray placed his cigarette back in his mouth. Winston bristled at "myth" and asked him if it ever occurred to him that maybe the reason they were so busy lately was because the dead have been rising from the grave. Ray paused and looked at him. He suggested a little music and turned on the radio. Winston agreed. Ecto-1 drove across the Manhattan Bridge. A tune played. Sunrise was coming.

Paragraph reads: "The exchange between Louis and the horse harkens back to a deleted scene from the June and July drafts in which Venkman and the alien Zuul -- masquerading as human in Dana's body -- leave the restaurant and encounter several carriage horses. Noticing the bridles and harnesses, Zuul inquires if they are prisoners. Uncertain of her reaction, Venkman responds promptly: "No, no. They're volunteers. This is considered a good job for a horse." "They look so sad," Zuul laments, and then kisses one of the beasts with enough genuine emotion to elicit a worried look from the carriage driver. In the June draft, Venkman pulls her away and segues -- ever so smoothly -- into an invitation which leads to his surprise wakeup the next morning: "You know, I was just thinking. No trip to this dimension would be complete without a visit to the Times Square Motor Hotel."

Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis in Ghostbusters (1984)


[Egon is running tests on Louis, who has been possessed by Vinz Clortho and is now the Keymaster] 

Dr. Egon Spengler : Vinz, you said before you were waiting for a sign. What sign are you waiting for?

Louis : Gozer the Traveler. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

Louis : [Louis, as the possessed Keymaster Vinz Clortho, runs out of Central Park, scaring a married couple]  I am the Keymaster! The Destructor is coming. Gozer the Traveler, the Destroyer.

[Louis pants and sniffs, then notices a horse carriage; horse neighs] 

Louis : Gatekeeper.

[Walk over towards the horse] 

Louis : I am Vinz, Vinz Clortho, Keymaster of Gozer. Volguus Zildrohar, Lord of the Sebouillia. Are you the Gatekeeper?

Coachman : Hey, he pulls the wagon, I made the deals. You want a ride?

[the possessed Louis growls at the coachman with his red-glowing eyes] 

Louis : [to the horse]  Wait for the sign. Then our prisoners will be released.

[Runs amok, scaring bystanders; yelling] 

Louis : You will perish in flame, you and all your kind! Gatekeeper!

Coachman : What an asshole.

Dr. Raymond Stantz : Are you okay?

Louis : Who are you guys?

Dr. Raymond Stantz : We're the Ghostbusters.

Louis : Who does your taxes?

Dr. Raymond Stantz : You know, Mr. Tully, you are a most fortunate individual.

Louis : I know!

Dr. Raymond Stantz : You have been a participant in the biggest interdimensional cross rip since the Tunguska blast of 1909!

Louis : Felt great.

Dr. Egon Spengler : We'd like to get a sample of your brain tissue.

Louis : Okay.

[Louis has been possessed by Vinz Clortho a.k.a. The Keymaster] 

Janine Melnitz : Do you want some coffee, Mr. Tulley?

Louis : [to Egon]  Do I?

Dr. Egon Spengler : Yes, have some.

Louis : [to Janine]  Yes, have some.

Woman at Party : [coming up to Louis during party]  Do you have any Excedrin or extra-strength Tylenol?

Louis : [opening cabinet]  Gee, I think all I got is acetylsalicylic acid, generic. See, I can get six hundred tablets of that for the same price as three hundred of a name brand. That makes good financial sense, good advice...

[takes platter back into living room] 

Louis : Hey, this is real smoked salmon from Nova Scotia, Canada, $24.95 a pound! It only cost me $14.12 after tax, though.

[walks up to a hapless guest, speaking confidentially] 

Louis : I'm givin' this whole thing as a promotional expense, that's why I invited clients instead of friends. You havin' a good time, Mark?

[heads across the room, greeting other guests] 

Louis : How you doing? Why don't you have some of the brie, it's at room temperature!

[to the Tall Woman] 

Louis : You think it's too warm in here for the brie?

Tall Woman at Party : [standing]  Louis, I'm going home.

Louis : Aw, don't leave yet. Well, listen, maybe if we start dancing other people will join in!

Tall Woman at Party : [pauses]  Okay!

[Louis and the Tall Woman begin disco dancing. Suddenly the doorbell rings] 

Louis : Oh, don't move, I just gotta get the door.

[opens door, greeting guests] 

Louis : Ted! Annette! I'm glad you could come, how you doin', give me your coats. Everybody, this is Ted and Annette Fleming! Ted has a small carpet cleaning business in receivership; Annette's drawing a salary from a deferred bonus from two years ago! They got fifteen thousand left on the house at eight percent.

[throws the guests' coats in the closet, oblivious that they hit the demon Vinz Clortho hiding there] 

Louis : So they're okay! So, does anybody wanna play Parcheesi?

[Vinz Clortho growls from inside the bedroom] 

Louis : [grinning]  Okay, who brought the dog?

[the Ghostbusters HQ blows up] 

Louis : [possessed by Vinz Clortho a.k.a. The Keymaster]  This is it! This is the sign!

Janine Melnitz : Yeah, it's a sign, all right. "Going out of business."

[Louis is being chased by the demon Vinz Clortho] 

Louis : [frightened]  I'm going bring this up with the Tenants' Association. You're not supposed to have pets in the building.

Louis : Boy, the superintendent's gonna be pissed!

Dana Barrett : [gets off the elevator and Louis comes out of his apartment] 

Louis : Oh, Dana, it's you!

Dana Barrett : Oh hi. Yes Louis, it's me.

Louis : I thought it was the drugstore.

Dana Barrett : Oh, are you sick?

Louis : Oh! No, no, I'm fine, I feel great! Just ordered some more vitamins and stuff. I was just exercising. I taped a 20-minute workout and played it back at high speed on my machine so it only took ten minutes. I got a great workout.

Dana Barrett : Good...

Louis : You wanna come in for a mineral water or something?

Dana Barrett : Oh, I'd really like to, Louis, but I have to go rehearsal now. Excuse me.

Louis : No sweat, I'll take a rain check on that. I always have plenty of low sodium mineral water and other nutritious foods in the house. But you already know that.

Dana Barrett : [dryly]  Yeah, I know that...

Louis : Listen, that reminds me, I'm having a big party for all my clients, my fourth anniversary as an accountant, you know, and even though you do your own tax return, which you shouldn't do, I'd like you to stop by, being that you're my neighbor and all.

Dana Barrett : [interrupting]  Well thank you, Louis, I'll really try to stop by.

Louis : Listen, that reminds me, you shouldn't leave your TV on so loud when you go out. The creep down the hall phoned the manager.

Dana Barrett : That's strange, I didn't realize I'd left it on.

[unlocks her door] 

Louis : [droning on]  Well yeah, you know what I did? I climbed on the ledge and tried to disconnect the cable, but I couldn't get in, so you know what I did? I turned my TV up real loud too so everyone would think all our TVs had something wrong with them.

Dana Barrett : [abruptly closing her door]  Bye, Louis.

Louis : [alone again]  Okay, so I'll see you later, huh? I'll give you a call! I'm going to go have a shower.

[tries to go back into his apartment but he's locked himself out] 

Louis : [possessed by Vinz Clortho]  I am The Keymaster!

Dana Barrett : [possessed by Zuul]  I am The Gatekeeper!

Louis : [cornered by the the demon Vinz Clortho]  Nice doggy. Cute little pooch. Maybe I've got a Milk-Bone.
