A new team answers the call in first trailer for Paul Feig's Ghostbusters

03.03.2016

Ghostbusters Paul Feig Kristen Wiig Melissa McCarthy Kate McKinnon Banner

After months of waiting, Sony has finally released the first trailer for Paul Feig's all-female GHOSTBUSTERS, and I've got to say, it doesn't look that bad. Not saying the upcoming comedy will be amazing or as fantastic as the original movie, but it has the potential to be a fun flick, and the CGI ghost effects are pretty solid. Although I haven't been the biggest the supporter of the reboot, I'm certainly going to give it a chance.

Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Leslie Jones star as the new team of Ghostbusters, and other cast members include Chris Hemsworth, Andy Garcia, Charles Dance, Michael K. Williams, and Neil Casey as the film's villain.

"Get out of my friend, ghost!"

There's also a new featurette for the film. Check it out below!"

Synopsis:

With paranormal activity on the rise, a Columbia University academic, her ghost-chasing friend, the friend’s business partner, and an MTA employee join forces to bust ghosts and save New York.

GHOSTBUSTERS will be in theaters on July 15, 2016.

Well...

Maybe I'll watch eventually on Netflix... Definitely not paying full price at Cinema for what the trailer represents. The trailer should make people WANT to see the movie. If you have a trailer that is universally panned, you are losing possible paying viewers which means the negativity that everyone is portraying and everyone that is giving the Green "love", just shows that though it may make money, it won't be as successful as the studio hopes. I don't see this having longevity at the Box

I don't see this having longevity at the Box Office IF the reviews of the final product end up being as it has been foreshadowed by many in the trailer.

The studio has already stated there will be more sequels, but how many remain to be seen and unfortunately, if we all see this (in theaters) just for nostalgia sake and not for the quality of the movie - we could potentially all lose in the future Ghostbusters franchise department! That's just an opinion of a 35 year old male whom doesn't care if the cast were men or women - I just wanted a good Ghostbusters sequel... A reboot/reimagining is secondary want for me... But at least make it GOOD!

Shouldn't it say three scientists and a guy who wanted a steady paycheck?
Also this looks like more of a spoof than a retelling.
Thirdly, this looks terrible.

Oh. I could have sworn this was a sequel/continuation, not a quasi-remake. I wasn't too thrilled about it regardless, but doing it this way seems like a huge mistake.

To everyone commenting about the "4 scientists" thing

Don't forget this is a Paul Feig movie. To more accurately describe it as "four men" would of course be misogynistic and offensive so forget the facts, say four scientists. It's more gender-neutral. ......This dude sucks.

Misleading

I also don't like how they're trying to trick audiences into seeing it. The 30 years ago text implies sequel, then it says a new team will answer the call, which seems to suggest that there was an OLD team before this next generation came along, and finally at the end they don't even show the title of the movie, just the logo. They want to trick the uninformed into thinking this is Ghostbusters 3. This makes me think Sony knows it's a turd and will take trickery dollars that first weekend

This movie is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

This is that moment when all your worst fears are in fact validated. The one redeeming thing they might of had was the special effects and even those look cartoonish as if they walked right out of Disney's Haunted Mansion. Pass.

Not sold on it really. The colour-scheme has a real Schumacher era Batman feel to it.
Looks like they're trying a few new ideas amongst all the nods to the original which is at least to their credit.
I wouldn't say it looks like the worst kind of cinematic garbage, but I doubt I'd pay to watch it.

Quite startled how many women hate this.

Walked into the office this morning and everyone was talking about it. The women hated it more than the men.
If men are misogynistic for not liking it I wonder what labels Paul Feig will chuck at the women who dislike it...

4 scientists?

They lost me at describing the original team as '4 scientists'. Winston wasn't a scientist.

Oh, and the trailer was shite.

Must be nice living with your head shoved far up your ass. Did you like the trailer because Leslie Jones is loud and obnoxious in it? How about when McKinnon licks her gun... OR what about the shitty live action scooby doo look of the whole thing. It is a fucking cartoon, it is a spoof of the original and it sucks.

To hate this but I think this looks like it is going to be a blast. They, and we know, it will never top the originals but I like the playful vibe I am getting from this thing. I am calling it...McKinnon is going to be the break out here

I think you can tell that a lot of effort was put into this. The effects look fantastic and it will be a visual spectacle. But the comedy is just generic.

Leslie Jones' one character & one volume, OBNOXIOUS & LOUD! Anyone see Paul Feig in Ski Patrol? He has a great dance scene & he dresses up as Tine Turner with gold glitter dress, black wig and balloon boobies. Women today might find the scene misogynistic. Some black people might find it offensive. I on the other hand am neither a woman nor black and I LOVE Ski Patrol. But I HATE THIS GHOSTBUSTERS TRAILER.

Man this is generating Fantastic Four level fan hate among the fans. It'll be an uphill battle to overcome this since that's the group these films are usually aimed at.
For what it's worth, i liked the trailer, had some good laughs and nice effects.

I doubt fans of the original like myself will have any impact. The film going audience is large enough that it will probably make its money worth worldwide regardless of how shite and offensive to the original it actually is.

Sheep...

morons spewing hateful rants getting upvoted, but anyone who didn't say they hated it gets downvoted. Shocker. Htf you gonna downvote someone for saying "looking forward to seeing this!"?? That person is wrong because he liked what he saw? He deserves a negative response because a remake doesn't bother him? Or he doesn't want to nitpick every single thing he can find to talk shit about?? Because some people (adults mostly) realize there is absolutely NOTHING in the world to get upset about

A simple "I'm probably gonna skip this one" is all it would take. Instead spewing so much hatred and negativity. It is your right, to be a hater if you want, but down voting people just for NOT hating?? That just makes you a douchebag!

As for the film, admittedly I wasn't blown away, but I remain hopeful.

The first time I ever saw Melissa McCarthy was in Bridesmaids and she genuinely made me laugh several times! Since then, nothing. I just don't like her as a "straight man": her delivery is forced and unnatural.

As for the trailer, when you remove the novelty effect from a movie that was known for its originality, you have a problem. We can all talk about how great the original movie was but let's not forget that the same team was also responsible for the sequel as well and it wasn't nearly

The effects and visuals are no longer groundbreaking and I don't think even Reitman's film would hold on the strength of its script alone.

There's good and there's bad. I like the idea of seeing these women in a high-concept comedy like this. They've got a good working dynamic, so that part's taken care of. Of course, if you don't like them, that won't change. And some of the differences look exciting.
On the bad, redoing old jokes from the first movie is unnecessary, and how come the vfx look LESS like ghosts than in the original? You've got 30+ years of technological advancements and you can't make your spirits

All-in-all I like Feig'ssense of humor, and the cast. So I'm interested. But, and I knew this before, this will NEVER replace Reitman's 1984 original.

Someone nailed it

There doesn't seem to be any chemistry. You can't replicate Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis who had worked together in the past several times. All Second City vets, etc. They had much more talent and played off each other well with snappy dialogue. This looks like the usual toilet/vomit humor style so common today, Too bad. Other than Spy, which had some laughs, and Otherspace, Feig is way overrated.

And the point is...?

So, they took the most obvious surface-dwelling aspects and added a generic twist that's a plot point of every fucking movie nowadays that someone's building a machine that makes the ghosts more powerful. And they have to stop the machine before the ghosts take over the world basically. They dumbed down and neutered jokes from the original. This looks like a cliff's notes with filler in between. It looks like a bastardized version of the original written by whoever the hot new studio writer is

Looks Fun to me

The fanboy Hate on this is just ridiculous. Most everyone has had their mind shut off to this ever since it was announced and having an all female cast. Get over it. It's not going to erase the original, you guys will still have that to see. I swear people these days b*tch & b*tch about everything and at the drop of a hat. Even if this movie gets rave reviews, and is fantastic, the fanboy haters will still b*tch and not like it. I mean, all of this over a dang movie. Chill OUT! Relax.

This honestly looks like a really good time, and Paul Feig and company have made really funny and good movies before, so I'm really down for this. The ghost effects are solid, and the cast look to have great chemistry. I want to see a longer trailer.

@Horrormoviefan173 You make some deeply stupid points.

Few have actually expressed having a problem with an all female cast. Rather, the problem comes with the film being a reboot rather than a continuation with a new team.

Try reading what people are actually writing rather than parroting fantasy based SJW garbage.

Was I supposed to laugh? Did I miss something? I didn't find a single line in that trailer that even made me smirk. Its exactly what i expect a hack job of a movie meant to cash in and nothing more. No heart, no soul, and definitely no funny. The only positive thing I can say about the trailer are the ghost effects look pretty good.

This looks like stink garbage! Jokes felt forced, slapsticky, and unfunny. The chemistry between the cast was awful. It completely lacks the style and subtlety of the original's humor, and the girls do not play off each other at all like the original team did. Fuck this piece of shit movie!

I confess that I am someone who never watched ghostbusters as a kid. I've seen snippets here and there, but nothing I can remember, which was due to just me having me missed that one. So as a non-ghostbusters fan, I have to say this movie looks absolutely atrocious. I don't get how Pixels got a bad rap when this looks so similar. Unfortunately this movie will do well and will spawn numerouse sequels. Another example of the movie going public showing up in droves to watch movies they know

Kids and women will flock, curious movie goers, and even the doubters will still show up, so I mean all we can really do is.....nothing.

"Except for the logo and the theme song and the car and license plate and the popular ghost character and the look of the uniforms and equipment and the black person as the non-scientist and the fact that this movie mentions the original GBs and . . . "

Feig says this is a new story, and the old stuff never happened. But he steals everything that defines the original movies.

Haters gonna hate!

If you want the Ghostbusters of your childhood watch the original. End of story. Im stoked for this. If you think this movie is to appease the kid in you that remembers the original you're dead wrong. Your generation means nothing to the studio. This movie will be a fun time, it will rake in tons of cash, and it will wpawn a trilogy. And you know what? Kids are gonna love it. So hate on it, skip it if you will but, that just points out your irrelivence.

Msgelter, look further than the TMNT trailer that everyone hated. Heads up, theres a sequel coming. You're gonna see toys, lunchboxes, backpacks, clothes and hear kids whisteling that tune come summer. Enjoy being delighted in your disappointment.

This is going on the same shit pile as these remakes: conan the barbarian, total recall, robocop, bad news bears, karate kid, charlie and the chocolate factory,Annie, planet of the apes (2001) just to name a few. Cheers to your generation and all the crap that came out of it! now go to your room!

I wouldn't mind the horribly unfunny Leslie Jones if they put her in a more straight laced role as one of the scientist. But to make her the loud black "street" woman is ridiculous.

Something Strange in the Cinema

I hope they make a male Charlie's Angels just to piss off feminists and to show how not every movie can be easily switched. That looks bad. They even use the Library scene from the first one for godsake!

Lol, I've often thought that! It's all very easy for SJW's to impose their agenda views on already established properties that are male skewed and done so intentionally but how would they like Charlie's Angels, Wonder Woman or Cagney and Lacey etc to be redone with a male/s or heavily male skewed? Odds are they wouldn't.

Exactly. There is nothing wrong with the change of gender or colour to the character but some characters and story lines can't be changed or there is no point to it. Like you said if we changed well established characters from black to white or female to male then as the Joker once said "the world goes mad!".

WOW! Now you know why they waited so long to drop a trailer

I very rarely comment on anything but damn.. this was horrible.
They should have never referenced the first one if their not going to connect it to the originals in some way that makes it look like they took things over from them.
This was just bad.. and not funny at all.

Yup...

As I predicted a while ago this film is identical to Star Wars EpVII, as a soft reboot/remake. Clearly this is the new trend in Hollywood to avoid the stigma of it being a literal remake. Now all we need is a term for this new genre…

This looks like 2002's Scooby Doo. The cgi effects are so ridiculously cartoonish. The characters are equally as cartoonish. What is this supposed to be? Ghostbusters had an adult edge to it, the effects were unique and scary, it was down right spooky and horror movie-ish at times. This remake looks like a bad CGI cartoon for six year olds.

I choose to focus on the positives

Sure, some of the jokes fall flat. Sure it's lazy to rehash scenes from the original. (Hello the Force Awakens).

But the trailer confirms what I have been thinking all along.
That Kate McKinnon is gonna be my favorite new Ghostbuster.
She just looks so cool and seems like the most coco-bananas Ghostbuster yet. In a good way.
Did you see her unbridled joy in the background when they are presented with the hearse?
And licking her guns before she's gonna go ghostbustin'. I just think

And I even loved the way the trailer was cut with the remix of the themesong.

Equality yes, cynical 'on trend' equality no thanks. This film is just another example of Feig's one trick pony of doing films that are pushing the current 'women empowerment' movement. It's almost like he has man hatred or an inability to produce a script that has the wacky idea of having both male and female leads.
Your comment's bang on though.

I went on my tirade not that long ago, and I did start feel like a keyboard warrior. Point in fact I felt like an asshole because I have lived to eat my words more than once. In this case I really wanted to be wrong but holy shit does this look bad. I also hate that the token black person has to say "ah hell nah!", seriously why is this line a thing? The uber bright ghosts make it feel a little too cartoonish. As I told my wife it's not as surprising as it is deflating that this movie looks

The uber bright ghosts make it feel a little too cartoonish. As I told my wife it's not as surprising as it is deflating that this movie looks like shit. I had a feeling everything was going to feel forced. I am amazed at the lack of creativity; recycled jokes, out of date references, and all too similar character archetypes. Can I also say how much the little pistol attachments to the proton pack pisses me off? (Fanboy coming out here) The proton packs are supposed to be powerful, they're not something that can be dual wielded like six-shooters in the old west. These are something where the characters were afraid of crossing together. I hate this for Kirsten Wiig, who is a favorite of mine right now. Although I almost think she works better in more serious work like the Skeleton Twins. Kate McKinnon does seem funny so hopefully she'll bounce back from this.

The look and feel is there, but McCarthy & Jones feel completely out of place

I was not okay with this reboot. I'm not a "mega online fan" of Ghostbusters. However, I was not down with this reboot. Casting McCarthy and Jones felt out of place and the trailer continues to shows this. I'd say the same thing if it was Andy Sandberg and Kevin Hart.
Don't say, it looks good because of the solid CGI. Anyone with half a brain can invest in making the CGI look good. Wiig and McKinnon look good and rightly casted in their roles. I'm not sold on McCarthy and Jones....at all!

I definitely agree McCarthy feels out of place. I think she was put in there by Feig and the studio because of the financial success of Feig and McCarthy's collaboration. The problem with Jones is that she appears to be written as the token; plain, pure, and simple. They were actually the ones I was most worried about, and this trailer pretty much confirms those. If this movie manages to actually be good (don't have much hope) it'll be because of Wiig and McKinnon.

So it IS a remake? Then why does the trailer start by mentioning the events from the original in a way that acknowledges that it's the same universe? Now, I barely laughed, but the remix of the theme song is pretty cool.

You didn't get the memo either? This has been a remake since Day 1. The old cast like Ernie Hudson are in this as cameos (cab drivers and such). The big bad guy even takes the form of one of their thoughts, but instead of the marshmallow man, it is the Ghostbusters logo. The main villain is played by Andy Garcia.

I'm not hating the trailer and will give this a chance, but it certainly doesn't look amazing. I don't like how much glow the ghosts have. It looks a little cheap, like if you went into a haunted house.
I really do hope that the intro about 30 yrs ago means the cameos ARE of them as their respective roles and not random cab guy or random couple in the park etc. I'd be happier if this film directly connects to the originals.

If you don't want to watch the reboot, that's cool.
Rip it apart online? Hey...freedom of speech, baby.

I think 25% nostalgia & 75% curiosity alone will drive most people to check it out. Not that it looks 'Fantastic Four' "bad".

Hmm

Was hoping the story line would be new, different. Much of this seems the same or similar. The Library scene, some of the dialog, It's only a minute of footage, but so far it seems like a gender-altered carbon copy. Would have rather seen a continuation of the universe, than a thinly-veiled repeat.

...Did you not get the memo? From day one this was a gender swapping re-imagining. It was never a sequel. It is a remake. But we all know the word remake or re-imagining just means stealing all the best parts from the original and making them shitty with worse effects, horrible actors, going for the easy gross out laughs (that NEVER work, nobody laughed at any of the sliming shit in this trailer or the all the cracks comment after).

Basically they take what is good and fuck it up and spit it

AHAHAHAHA!!! I knew it! This looks HORRIBLE!

Didn't even crack a smile. It looks just as advertised, like a bunch of SNL rejects trying hard to not be funny chasing after the original movies story. Even using the same ghost. Where is the originality? This is totally this years F4 remake in terms of flops. This didn't look funny at all.

Yup, it totally misses the point of the original content the same way the scooby doo movies missed the point of the cartoons. This wasn't made for anyone other than to sell toys to kids (who won't want the toys because they can still get the REAL ghostbuster toys anywhere).

It almost looks like some of the characters are direct rips too with similar back stories, and lets use the same gags, and the same lines, but hey this is not a sequel or any way tied to the other stories.

It's a remake... It's always been a remake. They just don't like that term because all remakes fail these days. Look at The Thing remake, they coined the term "re-imagining" and all they did was take the best parts from the first movie and make them suck with worse effects and horrible actors, much like what happened with this movie.

That last bit with the smacking...

If they really considered it to be trailer-worthy hilarious and that's a sign of what's to come from this, I wouldn't see this movie if THEY paid ME $10.

The trailer looks surprisingly good. It should have been out a long time ago. My only beef with the trailer is how they try to connect this movie with the originals because so far this has nothing to do with two original movies. Nevertheless, it looks surprisingly good but I prefer practical special effects rather than CGI ghosts.

It is a remake, so of course it is going to steal all the fun scenes from the first movie and turn them unfunny because the director is a hack and the people he got are not funny at all.

The Characters

I don't know the solution, but the problem is that the characters in this movie will only be referred to by the actresses' names. Reading through the previous comments shows that people refer to Winston, Venkman, Ray, and Egon. That's not going to happen with this movie. Anyways, looks like the Pixels trailer.

I was banging the drum of "wait for the trailer guys before you shit all over it!" and now that it's here I am disappointed. Half out of these 'Busters I actually consider funny and the other two are trying very very very very hard (and not doing it for me) and it shows. I'm still a bit hesitant to write this one off completely because the 2nd trailer might show me something else/more and by the time reviews roll out I'll know for certain if it is something I will invest $10+ in.

"30 years ago, four scientists saved New York" I hate to nitpick, but Winston was not a scientist, he was the working man who just wanted a steady paycheck. I'm really surprised they didn't proof read their text. Of course, since the trailer was pretty lame anyways, maybe it's not the worst part of it. It just seems indicative to me of how much thought went into this thing.

Flase advertising... There is no continuity here

The marketers wanted to make this seem like a sequel when it is clearly not. The rumors of the cameos do not have the original Ghostbusters reprising their roles. Its not a complete train wreck, but Im also probably not gonna see it (at least until its streaming as part of a service).

Way off, it's like taking for example a Picasso artwork painting a smiley face then smearing crap all over it. That's why people care about a film. It's a finished product and if a masterpiece is not there to be tinkered with, remade or abused. GB is a fantastic 80's film.
If you had been following all these comments from day one, the issue isn't a new GB film it's the way in which the original writers/actors, the studio and Feig have all approached the issue.

The only redeeming quality of this trailer...

is in the Time Square shot, and a nod to Winton's analysis of the psychokinetic energy in the New York area.

Slap Stick Bull Shit

I was praying I would be wrong and the trailer would look like something worth a damn. But this is nothing but cheesy slapstick humor. The ghosts look good in my opinion, but the slime on the people is glowing too much. It didnt glow in the originals. I will see this for free on Kodi, and question my decision to watch it the entire time.

This is just....bad. And yes, I am nostalgic for the originals, but the originals are comedy classics. I'm sorry but a lot of the ghosts look like they belong the Casper movie with Christina Ricci. Ghostbusters' comedy came from quality comedic writing, not slapstick gag humor. Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis knew how to write lasting comedy, this is not that. I wanted this to be good, but I just don't see how it can get better. Yes, it's only a trailer, but what is in this trailer is not

I'm confused...

Is this a sequel or a remake? The text in the beginning suggests it's a sequel... everything after that suggests it's a complete remake. Feels a bit unfocused and indecisive.

They've said it's a remake, they're just trying to plug into the tools of the originals without having to fit it in to that world from the first two movies. Pretty lazy to try to simply play on the nostalgia of a great flick.

I was rooting for this...

..but based on this trailer, I might have to jump bandwagons. I really wanted this to work with the comedic talent involved, but this trailer is just horribly plain and unfunny.

The original worked so well cause it was an adventure film in a realistic setting, the characters felt like real people, and the humor was smart and often subtle - the same reason comedic films like Back to the Future or Raiders of the Lost Ark worked so well. This remake is going pure cartoonish, with over the top broad humor that seems to be aiming for the lowest common denominator. This remake looks more like Son of the Mask than Ghostbusters.

Raiders is totally a comedic film. The film is filled with subtle (and not so subtle) comedic gags from beginning to end. Spielberg said that Buster Keaton was one of his inspirations. Watch Keaton's comedy The General and it feels like one long action scene from an Indiana Jones movie.

I have low expectations, but I'll probably see it and probably be pleasantly surprised.
There will be some funny moments, and some stupidity. It is a Ghostbusters movie. Anyone who expects something great is going to be disappointed. Looks to be about the same quality as Pixels. Mindless pap.

Who you gonna call?

To be honest I am not fully aware if any of the originals are/have given their blessings. I believe several have cameos?? In any case my loyalty is with the Original cast. Seems like they were robbed of their rights to another sequel. For now unless I hear they fully support this movie I will wait till its free on TV. Maybe even pony up my $1.59 at redbox.

I'm very in the middle on this one. I don't care at all about the female cast, it's been a non-issue for me since day 1. But the story/plot seems very Ghostbusters. But then some/most of the jokes are very NOT Ghostbusters. But at the same time, the jokes aren't necessarily bad, they just seem really out of place for the comedy that was Ghostbusters (there was no slapstick in those movies). So I don't know what to make of this. I was hoping the first trailer would make all the pussy

WHY?????????????????

So let me get this right.......Feig made the exact same movie as 30 yeas ago, just switched from men to women and added some shit from the cartoon, including the cartoon Egon and the proton pistols from Extreme Ghostbusters? Really original! Hell if that's the case we can all be directors! Good job Hollywood. An just as I figured Leslie Jones just screaming and bugging out her eyes. I will go out on a limb and say I'm sure there will be some sexual jokes between her and Hemsworth just like she

Not terrible, not great

It looks alright, some funny spots, but not a lot. I do think its hilarious how predictable all the fanboys are being about this. As if they hadn't dug in their heels to do anything but completely hate any footage they saw. Their loss.

Anyway, I'm still reserving judgement. I don't think it'll be anywhere near as good as the first one, but from what I'm seeing here it'll at least be better than the second.

I thought the effects and some of the story ideas in this trailer seemed pretty good. Always hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst.
