Trailer here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahZFCF--uRY

Looks more serious? Dunno. At any rate, I'll probably catch it. Good cast, goes back to the old storyline, looks fun.

we did it gang, we successfully actually impeached trump

now! [claps hands] on to the next, more important step of this we must convince ourselves this is meaningless and we have accomplished nothing in an even symbolic sense and will still lose. let's have a big "nothing matters" on the count of three! one, two

You call it an accident. I call it justice.

Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised by that. I'm not even a Ghostbusters fan but it sure as shit looked better than LadyBusters.

I'm still immensely skeptical of the entire idea of doing a Ghostbusters sequel, but that at least appears to be going for the right tone in terms of taking itself a LITTLE seriously rather than doing it in the style of an Adam Sandler cash-grab with a lot of fart jokes.

It will really interesting seeing how it does vs the 2016 film.  Especially with all the gender politics involved between the two movies.

Maybe I'm weird, but that did absolutely nothing for me.

It didn't look like a train wreck which I guess is something at least. Didn't really do much for me either. Jason Reitman is a perfectly ok director, but there's no getting around the fact that he's only directing this by virtue of his father directing the original.

In fairness, there's probably not a bigger fan of Ghostbusters on the planet. He was there on set when it was made and has always loved the movies. Hopefully that passion will translate into a good film, we'll see I guess. It has a good cast it looks like and I like how they didn't show any of the returning cast members in the trailer though I suspect as we get closer to release the marketing department won't be able to help themselves.

Also, Egon was always my favorite and I like how it's pretty clear they're his descendents.
