The First ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Trailer is Here And AWESOME

The First ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Trailer is Here And AWESOME


Finally we have a trailer for the “Ghostbusters” reboot!

Many have been curious about the gender switching reboot for “Ghostbusters.” While we’ve heard the cast announced and seen the photos, the trailer has been the detail that everyone has been looking forward to. Well today we get the first look at the possibilities this new “Ghostbusters” film could bring. Take a look at the trailer below.

The first thing that I will say about the trailer is that it looks visually pleasing. Things don’t seem to be too distracting with CGI and it still carries that unpolished look that we had in the original “Ghostbusters” film. In addition to the visuals, the new cast all seem to pay homage to the original cast with their characters. Each cast member has an aspect of the original characters which should make the reboot transition more palatable for fans of the original film.

When thinking about the cast, it is sort of nostalgic to see that a majority of the team is comprised of current and former SNL cast members. The original film had Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray who got their start on “Saturday Night Live” and this film will have Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, all whom have their own ties to the TV sketch comedy show. In addition to them, you have Melissa McCarthy who has proved herself as almost an honorary SNL member with her brand of comedy in film and television.

Despite fans wanting to see the original cast suit up again, this reboot seems like it should do the original film some justice. Nobody can fill the shoes of Bill Murray but this new cast is certainly going to try to please the fans nonetheless.

What did you think of the trailer? Are you excited for the film or skeptical?

I’m not a fan of Melissa McCarthy, and that’s kinda pushing me away from this. I dunno. The chemistry of the original cast was so amazing. That’s going to be hard match.

I don’t even see it as a reboot. It will never top the original. It’s more of an adaptation in my mind where they pay tribute to the original but don’t try to top it.

I honestly think that Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy are better at straight or dramatic roles than comedy.
