Re: Ghostbusters Trailer
As for me, I like the what each of the ladies cast has accomplished individually outside this movie. Although this kind of fare is ordinarily not for me, I'll watch it to see the main cast work together just because they're all good at their craft, despite the movie's limitations placed upon them. Kate McKinnon is one to watch, IMHO. I hope she receives more and better roles in her movie future.

Besides, this Ghostbusters is just one more in a string of mindless movies made for grins and little more. There's a whole generation or two out there for whom it will be new, not a reboot. I'd hope the remaining framework of the original writers' storyline will be strong enough to carry the movie to some success if only to give this all-female lead cast a round of applause.

Re: Ghostbusters Trailer
I thought it looked cute and fun. Though I agree that the three buttoned-up white scientists with their sassy black friend was a little cringey. Other than that, it seems funny and enjoyable.

I can see not living up to the original (which has the benefit of nostalgia and a longstanding good reputation on its side), but horrible? Not sure how you get that far.

I think it'll do well.

Here's an IMO much better fan-cut version of the trailer:

Too bad Feig couldn't get something like this out first by himself. I'm not that confident in the movie now.

Re: Ghostbusters Trailer
Train wreck is the right expression. This is wrong on so many levels.

This trailer works as a parody, mixed with a few nostalgia moments. The title cards talk about "Four scientists". Winston was just a normal guy though.

The story is a complete rehash, the characters are mere shadows of the original and the pictures are not cinematic. They look like from a TV series pilot.

Re: Ghostbusters Trailer
Another example of how a studio would rather go with a brand than something original -- and make a big mistake by doing so. Fans of the original have little interest in seeing a remake and the Ghostbusters brand is meaningless to younger moviegoers. So, who really gives a **** other than die-hard SNL fans? And even they might pass on this turd.

They made a BRIDESMAIDS sequel already?

Re: Ghostbusters Trailer
It looks like another huge underperformer for Sony. In addition to what's already been said in this thread, can Sony/Columbia/Village Roadshow find a way to market this on anything other than legacy?

Sony's dismal box office last year:

Thread winner.

Re: Ghostbusters Trailer
I'm not a big fan of the original, but it's nice to see the remake recast with women, even though I don't expect it to be any funnier after seeing the trailer.
