  1. Does the thirty years ago line refer to the in-movie universe and the events of the original GBs occurring? Because I’d so I’d love a cameo from Winston, Venkman and Dan Ackroyd’s character whose name I can’t remember.

  2. This is a mistake. While the cast is a collection of very funny people who would be hysterical
    Cast in an original film, to reboot Ghostbusters is foolish. It’s like rebooting Indian Jones without
    Harrison Ford or thinking you could one-up Judy Garland in a re-telling of The
    Wizard of Oz. Should the remake Back to the Future or Dances with Wolves?

    Some films and characters are simply too iconic. I believe Ghostbusters is one of those films.
    You can already tell the film is making the classic mistake of “sequels” by using the same gags
    From the first film….the old car, the “sliming”, etc. A joke is only funny the first time. Hollywood
    never seems to understand that.

    I’m sure the film will do well given its cast which appears to be a collection of SNL alums past and present other than Melissa McCarthy, all of whom are comedically brilliant if you watch SNL. I just feel there are some films that transcend generations…never feel dated and irrelevant….and GB fits that description. Therefore it should be left to its own place in film history without having its brand go through the cash-grabbing, hollywood reboot process.

  3. My understanding is that this is a complete reboot with no reference to the previous. I’ve heard that there might still be cameos from some of the original cast, though (and we do see Slimer in that trailer)

    In a strange way, I’m not sure the better effects on the ghosts helps this, though I guess I’ll need to see it to be sure. The lower budget (I assume non-CGI) effects of the original felt a lot more grounded.

    And the giant, superthin ghost with the striped pants in Times Square, I should know who that was, right?

  4. You generally see the best a film has to offer in a trailer. If that’s the case with this one the film is going to be is going to be Ishtar bad

    • Not with Paul Feig movies. The trailer for Spy looked like an endless run of plebian Fat Jokes at Melissa MacCarthy’s expense. The movie itself was a clever, funny spy comedy.

      But I’m curious — I can see that the trailer might be underwhelming, and a bit by-the-numbers, and having the only woman of colour be the only non-scientist in the bunch has problems all its own, but Ishtar bad? Really? What did I miss?

  5. Both original and funny. Just never at the same time. The part that is original is not funny. The part that is funny is not original. The special effects are nice enough, but there’s very little chemistry on display here and GODDAMN IT FEIG, MAKE UP YOUR OWN FRIGGIN GHOSTS.
