Ah, have you seen the plot for it then?

 

Let's at least wait until we know what's going on with it before ripping it to shreds. 

 

That's not the way things work, you know that!

 

If you get the internet rage started early, you can more effectively build up to the manifesto and boycott when it actually gets released.

He was Garfield ffs

As I recall he didn't know he was playing Garfield the cat in a film by that director. I believe there is another better director with a very similar name and he got confused.

I’m not going to be too negative, cause hopefully it’s going to be a good sequel, but seeing as the only people being mentioned in this so far are Ivan Reitman (purely because he directed the original and father of), Jason Reitman and Gil Kernan.

 

So I thought I’d look up Jason Reitman and Gil Kernan, just to see what credibility they’d bring to it (apart from one being related to the original’s director).

 

So, erm, can anyone explain why there’s all this hype when it looks like Gil Kernan has one writing credit (this film) and Jason Reitman has directed the (only comedies I can see) Juno and Thank You For Smoking (both over 10 years old and not exactly laugh out loud fun fests). Paul Feig might have been utter shite (and I do hate his films), but to be fair at least he had some history in comedy films. 

 

Has Dan Ackroyd been mentioned anywhere? I mean, he’d literally look for any reason to try and get Ghostbusters 3 made. Or is it just Ivan Reitman out of the original team (Who IIRC was only credited with directing the film, although he did suggest changes to the story). 

 

Once you get past the hype of the (maybe not justifiable) Reitman name involvement, why is this going to be any better then “Answer the Call”? Or is this just Sony learning a bit from the backlash and doing a bit of fan service while they desperately get the Ghostbusters “universe” idea going again, seeing as they’ve probably put money towards it.

 

Actually, 90 mins of a CGI Harold Ramis taking a dump would be better than “Answer the call”

Would be amazing if they announce an entirely new cast of female Ghostbusters. Everyone loves a good internet meltdown.

 

I think it's gurantee'd to have at least 1 female in the group, maybe even 2 and that will be enough to upset those sensitive manbabies.

Maybe the new bunch will be the sons/daughters of the original cast.

 

Dana's baby son from Ghostbusters 2 is now grown up and can't look at oil paintings of historical figures without freaking out. Cue his interest in the occult. Meets up with Ray Stantz's daughter and Spengler Jr to try and work it out while at the same time New York (Zeddemore Jr is mayor!) is again under threat from an evil guy who wants to turn the Earth into the underworld or something. He turns out to be Venkman's son who killed Venkman himself, now hangs around bars as a ghost. Something about revenge, plenty of proton streams, traps, marshmallow, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria and cameos all round. Lots of baby Slimers causing havoc. References to Trump and walls.

IIRC there was always several strands of the development of a Ghostbusters film in development for donkeys years.  It was just that the Feig-directed one was the one that the studio (finally) approved recently, which didn't stop the continued development of the other strands.

Some astounding comments on Mark Kermode's YouTube channel this week in relation to Collette, which is a fantastic movie

 

No real surprises that in the current climate of faux feminist identity politics and patriarchal bashing we have been given two films within the last three months dealing with very similar themes.

 

Probably needs its own thread but yeah roll on day when sex / race of cast isn't seen as a thing

It’s gonna be kids - because Stranger Things

 

Kids fightling local ghosts in the country using old gear that they found in a weird car under a dust sheet in an abandoned farm.

 

"We could totally be like those old time Ghost Busters like the ones on the History Channel."

 

"Ghostbusters? We need to bring this up to date."

 

(Reveals designed by committee logo with the letters underneath GHSTBSTRS!)

 

"Yes! That's what I'm talking about" hisses the hooded kid in the corner with his vocoder voice wearing the Deadmaus style mask. (He will be revealed to be the last ghost they need to bust in the last act providing the pathos.)

I have much love for Ghostbusters. Not so much for the sequel or anything that followed.

 

I've love to see the old team back together but that's the issue isn't it - the actors are all too old (or actual ghosts already) to realistically revive their characters. Best we can hope for is a sympathetic handover movie with some cameo's from the old days and a new breed taking over the mantle. Indifferent to the genders, but I there needed to be some level of realism to ground the story. Ramis and Ackroyd provided that well - I could see their characters as academics who got lucky and managed to commercialise their product, facing challenges most growing companies do.

 

ATC was awful on so many levels but principally the unbelievability that a bunch of female characters would form such a company.

I’m finding it impossible to muster up any enthusiasm for this, but I must admit I’m encouraged by seemingly deliberately throw-back FX in that trailer. I find it incredibly distracting when sequels use a completely different aesthetic and style of cinematography, admittedly Fury Road managed it but it was one of Crystal Skull’s worst mistakes.

Yes! I knew there was something completely wrong about the feel (leaving the script aside) of crystal skull but could never quite put my finger on it.

 

anyway - I like this trailer but it’s doomed. Surely.

I think the opposite. Expectations are going to be at rock bottom after the last one. And Jason Reitmen is a very respected and talented director. I doubt he'd go near it unless he had a pretty good idea of how to do something good with it.

 

Tully was one of the best films of last year. And he knows how to do characters really, really well. And a comedy (especially one in this franchise) is all about that.
