This is for discussing the Ghostbusters reboot.
Previous discussion has happened at Ana Mardoll’s Ramblings in open threads here and here and you can go there if you want to see stuff that was already said but don’t continue the discussion there. If you want to add something, do it here.
Well before any other information about the movie was known, it attracted interest because instead of an all male field team with a female secretary as in the original the new movie features an all female field team with a male secretary.
Two trailers have been released for the movie so far. Note that the references to “30 Years Ago” are meta references because “The studio felt that they wanted to nod to the audience that we’re not pretending that those other films didn’t exist.” In the movie’s universe the original movies never happened and thus the ghost stuff is new.
[As a reminder, open thread prompts are meant to inspire conversation, not stifle it. Have no fear of going off topic for there is no off topic here.]
