    The second trailer for Ghostbusters has been released. Given that certain factions of the internet are pissed this has women starring in it, and seem intent on bringing it down, I hope it’s a hit.

    Just here for the comments

    I'm definitely not pissed at any part of the movie, it just doesn't interest me enough to spend $15 on.

  3. Do you have $5 Tuesdays? Hit it up then, if you're even a little interested. Trailers are hard to judge a movie by sometimes. So I'll definitely go see this, go into it knowing it's just a fun movie and doesn't need to be taken seriously at all, and hopefully it'll at least meet my expectations. I'm excited to see all the monsters/ghosts in it.

    Honestly, I'm down with a female ghostbusters movie but this simply just does not look very good at all. I really hope I'm wrong.

    For me, I don't care about gender. I care about story and legacy. This film does not look great. This trailer is better than the teaser but that's not saying much.

    I'll still probably check it out but I'm very cautious about having any kind of expectations.

    Yeah, to me it has nothing to do with the female cast, it has everything to do with it looking like an awful, awful movie.

    I hope its a big hit if its good and bombs if it isnt, regardless of the gender of the cast. Unfortunately, based on the trailers, it doesnt look promising.

    There's really not too many movies these days that make me want to spend that much to see in theaters. With all these sequels and reboots, I'd rather wait and have a marathon at home with the original/previous films, before watching the new ones on Netflix or Redbox from my own living room. It has to be truly original and catch my attention if I'm going to see it in theaters.

    Echoing the general consensus here. My disinterest is in what i have seen of the movie itself, not in the gender roles within.

    If they had gotten Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson to star in this movie it would still suck.

    I dunno what people are seeing that I'm not but I think it looks fine.

    I don't care that about the female lead part, I care about the female cast. I cannot stand any of these people ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Not interested in the property. Love all the actresses though.

    Much better trailer than the first one. I dig the cast and writer/director too much not to be looking forward to this.

    I'll change this eventually Prestigious

    Zero problem with it starring women (and haven't seen many people who feel contrary). The main issues I have (and the internet for that matter), is that the comedy seems slapstick, and that the characterization of the women feels weak and cliche. Most complaints I've seen is how Leslie Jones' character is a myriad of black stereotypes.

    Comedy trailers are the worst so I still expect this to be good.

    Yeah this trailer was perfectly fine. Also I still don't get why people hold the originals on such a high pedestal that cannot possibly even think of being reached when especially the second one wasn't really a masterpiece in any way.

    I'm guessing this is going to be the epitome of a "turn your brain off and enjoy" movie (like Jurassic World), and I'm totally down. Thinking gets really old really fast.

    So bad. Probably won't bomb though because of kids and tumblerites.

    I don't think people care that it's a female cast. I think people care (or don't care) about it cause it looks like a bludger of a movie. Didn't even smirk in the trailer

    The concept of a female ghost busters is great. You can't go crying patriarchy because they were given a shitty script.

  23. They care. They care a whole lot. The absolute insane sexism around the internet from the moment it was announced, before any trailer ever came out, has been overwhelming.

    Anyone posting that it's because of the trailer hasn't been paying attention.
  24. I highly doubt Feig and Dippold wrote a shitty script given their track record.

    Hey, I'm willing to give it a shot, but judging by the trailers the comedy is just bad.
