Look who is back in the new Ghostbusters TV spot

Okay, I have no problem with a reboot or the fact it is an all female team. If you are going to reboot something, then big changes like that make sense. However, I don’t understand why you would then continuously put in things from the original film – Slimer and now the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. If you are trying to begin again and make the new version its own film then why have constant throwbacks to the much loved original?

Just seems like a weird thing to do. I never understood the level of hate the reboot got when it was first announced, but the filmmakers aren’t helping themselves with some of these TV spots.

Once again the humour seems to be incredibly forced – a ghost being hit in the crotch? Come on, surely with all the people involved they could do better than that?

The new film is directed by Paul Feig stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth, from a screenplay written by Feig & Kate Dippold, based on the film Ghostbusters, written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis and directed by Ivan Reitman.

They are joined by Michael K. Williams, Andy Garcia, Neil Casey, Cecily Strong (SNL), and Matt Walsh (Veep).

Ghostbusters is out on 11th July 2016.

  1. My problem with a film like this is the message it sends. I’m all for equal rights, I really am but this just smacks of a feminist agenda. All I’m hearing here is: “All male dominated movies are bad, lets us bring balance to the industry and have an all-female cast“ I’ve never understood how this is fighting for equality? Surely it’s just tipping the scales the other way and creating and equally unbalanced agenda?
    That and the movie looks excruciatingly un-funny, almost like a bad parody of the original.
