Default Re: Ghostbusters Trailer

I know it's only a trailer & so it's hard to judge properly until having seen the film but off this it feels flat and a little dull. The fact that the opening scene involved 'sliming' suggests they're devoid of originality here. In fact there was at least two of these very same sequences in a 90 second trailer. What made the original so good and stand the test of time was the chemistry and energy between the four leads. There was a real balance. And I believed the likes of Aykroyd and Ramis could be scientists whereas I'm just not convinced the likes of Kristen Wiig & Kate McKinnon are natural fits in those roles.

It's like when an artist covers a classic song for the sake of it, if you aren't bringing anything fresh to the original then why bother?
