I’m tired listening to people complain about the new Ghostbusters movie film soley because it’s an all female team. I’m even more sick of listening to everyone else complaining about the people complaining about it being an all female Ghostbusters movie. If you don’t want to see it, don’t go see it. It’s really that simple.
I love each member of the cast and I’d love for the film to be great, but judging it based on these trailers doesn’t sell me on a film I have to see. Typically, a studio markets the best parts of a film in order to get asses in seats and if these trailers represent the best this film has to offer I think there’s a problem.
From the get-go Feig’s film sounded like a rehash of the original film with cute changes to the settings and jokes from the original film that we are all familiar with. Feig has justified his reason to reboot the series because he didn’t want to have to deal with a world in which ghosts and the Ghostbusters exist. That’s fine, go for it and really do your own thing. But don’t then fill your film with references to the original as a way to bolster laughs.
This newest UK one is probably the best of the bunch, but it still doesn’t do much for me, not because I’m a misogynist and hate women, rather it just hasn’t impressed me at any point. Judge for yourself.
Watch the new #Ghostbusters trailer now, and see it at Cinemas July 11.https://t.co/qrCKuEc39d

Also I think it’s absolutely cowardly to not put these trailers on YouTube. Are they afraid of breaking their own record for most hated trailer? Way to let the trolls win, folks.
