Ghostbusters (2016) Trailer #1
  

Tags: , , , ,


Today, Sony Pictures released the first official trailer for the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters. Let’s take a look before I give my opinion..

My thoughts? I liked it.

And I liked it for what it is. The classic 1984 Ghostbusters was a Comedy/Horror, and the comedy style was very 80’s. This new film appears to be a straight Comedy, written for today’s audience, and keeping that in mind, I buy it.

But, how can I mean it’s not a horror? There are ghosts! (and Slimer!) – let’s take a look at the artistic style of these ghosts. They’re very bright and vivid in color, more whimsical than scary. Let’s look at the “possession” scene. Green goo oozing from her ears and eyes. The head slowly doing a 180. The bitch slap exorcism.. I can’t see this being anything more than a comedy.

One of the things I had a lot of respect for, in this endever, is the appearance of Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, with her steampunk goggles and hair tossed up, she bares a striking resemblance to the cartoon version of the late Harold Ramis‘s “Egon Spengler“.

So.. will this reboot be any good? Time will tell. I am looking forward to this one, and I just hope it doesn’t disappoint. But if I’m being honest.. I still wish it would have been a followup/sequel rather than a reboot.
