    I just don't know about this one. The trailer was just meh and it just seems unnecessary to do a re-boot. A sequel would have been a beater thing to do.

    u know you're getting older when they start doing remakes or reboots on movies u grew up on.
    I'll probably wait for reviews before seeing this. has nothing to do with a all female cast. just wasn't impressed with the trailer.

    I have been looking forward to this forever, but the trailer was a bit meh. But now my expectations can only be put to shame. I guess that's a good thing?

    Totally agree on the Mccarthy front. Let's hope it's a Ghostbusters film starring the actresses, rather than a vehicle for hrm to do their usual schtick.

    just saw the newer trailer, & I'll admit it doesn't look bad. better then the first trailer anyway.

    The first trailer looked like another case of filmmakers exploiting nostalgia to put out low quality products (like Michael Bay). Didn't like the second either. If you happen to like it then that's fine (maybe the final product will somehow defy expectations), but not for me.

    There's actually backlash against people who don't like it, due to a small handful of sexist youtube comments. While such comments are unsavory (and nothing new for anyone familiar with youtube), now anyone who criticizes the film are being grouped as sexists by the filmmakers. Even though most of the criticism is on poor writing, jokes, atmosphere and concerns of being a cash-in.

    Sorry for all of that, but the situation left me with a bad taste. I don't tolerate sexism whatsoever, but telling people they're sexist if they don't like a trailer or movie is manipulative and immature. There are also plenty of negative trailer responses from women.

    Indeed. The movie looks like a POS, has nothing to do with the fact that it's a female cast.

    This film will be the biggest flop of the summer, I'm calling it now. Looks terrible.

    I usually don't mind Fall Out Boy songs (BH6, 'immortals' rocked) but yeah... It's pretty awful. I thought Bobby Browns song for GB2 was bad....

    This movie is going to be trash and Sony is calling all of it's male detractors misogynists. Let me shoot down that statement right now, regardless of the gender of those casted to portray the ghostbusters, this movie was destined to be bad because it's not the movie fans want to see. In my most humble opinion I believe fans wanted to see Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Harold Ramis' characters hire and train a new quartet of ghostbusters and pass the torch on to them. It would be the closure that ghostbusters fans wanted and also keep it open for a possible fourth movie and maybe more.

    I agree, but it would end up being 3 of the 4 original actors since sadly Ramis has passed.

    Yes this is true he did pass which further drives home the fact that we won't see this idea come to fruition.

    I can't wait to see this. This and Fantastic Beasts are my most anticipated movies of the year. Huge Ghostbusters fan growing up and I have no problem with the cast being all female, all male, all black, etc.
