If you feel like you might be experiencing deja-vu, you’re not alone! Sony Pictures decided to follow up its poorly received ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot trailer with a second, albeit better trailer, which was still met with a “Dislike” to “Like” ratio of 4 to 1 by the same day afternoon. The speculation around the projected success of this film is truly up in the air with many stating that while the visual and cinematic work is a positive attribute, it still lacks the genuine appeal fans first felt with the original flicks.
It’s not like Sony Pictures isn’t trying their hearts out to please you! The rebooted trailer now sports characters with more screen time involving MadTV veteran Michael McDonald and super-dude Chris Hemsworth interacting with our new team of Ghostbusters! You are also treated to a visually spectacular onslaught of cool ghosts and ghouls as well as a bit of what looks like a roof top climax similar and a very pissed off “Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.”
The adventure seems to have its moments, such as the disenchanted rock band scene and the White House Presidential meeting, both excellent interpretations of what could happen in a modern day ghost busting scenario! Unfortunately for now, the disliking of the YouTube upload is the squeaky wheel lowering our expectations. Fans and Critics will have to wait until July 15th to see if it was worth the wait.
