30 Things You Need to Know About Ghostbusters on Its 30th Anniversary

You know how the line goes: If there's something strange in your neighborhood, you probably live near the Kardashians. We're totally kidding! Everyone knows that if there's something strange or something weird "and it don't look good," you're gonna call the Ghostbusters.

Those four jumpsuit-wearing, proton pack-carrying heroes first appeared on movie screens 30 years ago this weekend, serving all of our supernatural elimination needs, reminding us never to cross the streams and, as the late Harold Ramis said, "turning the word 'slime' into a verb."

REVIEW: Sigourney Weaver Is Great Summer Entertainment in Political Animals | Sigourney Weaver

Political Animals Is Great Summer Entertainment: Review

Originally posted 07/15/2012 01:00PM

The six-episode Political Animals has the makings of great summer entertainment. It's as shallow and cheaply constructed as a kiddie pool, but there's plenty of water to splash around in.

In a nervy riff on real-life politics, Sigourney Weaver plays Elaine Barrish Hammond, a greatly admired Secretary of State and former First Lady: She's now divorced from ex-President Bud Hammond (Ciarán Hinds), a southern rogue whose sexual conquests can't satisfy his hunger for a return to power. My guess is you're not supposed to imagine Pat and Richard Nixon.

As the official leading lady of The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence knows she's landed an out-of-this-world role – in more ways than one.

Taking on the part of Katniss Everdeen, a fierce and feisty heroine competing in the ultimate game of life-or-death, Lawrence, 20, has extra special, extraterrestrial inspiration for tapping into the "fighting spirit" of her character.

"Sigourney Weaver's Ripley in Alien is the first [movie] that comes to mind," she tells Entertainment Weekly of an older yet similarly famous heroine.

Ed Helms: Going Naked Isn't So Funny

Ed Helms: Going Naked Isn't So Funny

As if losing a tooth in The Hangover wasn't proof enough of just how uninhibited Ed Helms can act, then go take a look at his latest effort, the big-screen comedy opening Friday, Cedar Rapids.

In it, the costar of The Office, here playing a dorky Midwestern insurance salesman, not only has intimate scenes with Sigourney Weaver and Anne Heche, but also shares a bare-all, towel-dropping embrace with Kurtwood Smith, who played the father of Topher Grace's character on That '70s Show.

"I was completely naked," Helms, 37, told PEOPLE at Thursday's New York Cinema Society screening of Cedar Rapids, sponsored by Altoids. "I feel that those little modesty pouches that they give you for nude scenes are far more humiliating than actually nudity, so why not just go for it?"

The aliens may be blue in Avatar, the highest-grossing film of all-time, but director James Cameron and star Sigourney Weaver are using their movie to spread a message that's proudly green.

The accomplished pair hosted the Eco Warrior Training competition, presented Saturday at Brooklyn Technical High School by the Internet search engine Bing. Local high school students vied for $12,000 in scholarships delivering speeches on "An Environmental Lesson I Learned From Avatar and How to Apply It In My Community, New York City, America and/or the World."

"As a New Yorker, I'm thrilled to be here to meet you, to talk to you about all of us becoming eco-warriors because our planet needs it. I got involved in Avatar, and I loved the experience. I loved the director, but I also really wanted to play Grace Augustine, who's this kick-ass woman scientist," Weaver, 60, told the more than 300 cheering teens in the audience.
