    Bummer this won’t be a sequel to the 2016 film, but you can bet I’ll still be in the theatre for it

    I’m gonna have to agree with comment two. Not bummed out it won’t be a sequel to 2016. Dead lord I did not enjoy that film. Give Hemsworth a full role

    I just checked Hulu, the reboot is on there so maybe I'll kill some time and check it out. I remember being excited because of the cast and then the trailer/commercials didn't make it look that great at all.

    As a huge ghostbusters fan I’m excited for this. However, I probably would have been just as excited for a sequel to the reboot.

    Not got much expectations for it anymore but glaf it's focused on the original Ghostbusters. I've missed Bill Murray. Then I can pretend that 2016 reboot was just a bad dream.

    Why do people like to act like the 2016 one was so bad?

    The 2016 reboot can maybe compete with Ghostbusters 2 but not even close to the original. Reboots of classic films are often controversial from the get-go anyway.

    Also realy hope they contact Rick Moranis and can convince him to return, even just for a small cameo.

    If this is titled anything other than "Ghostbusters 3", I feel like that would be a mistake.

    Also, I would use the score from the original movie in this new movie. The little teaser trailer alone is great because of it.

    I haven't seen the reboot and while I'm sure it ain't all that great, just...don't read the comments. :teethsmile:

    Honestly, the more I've had time to sit back and absorb this I'm starting to think it was a bad idea. As much as I've always wanted a new Ghostbusters movie with original characters back I think it's just been tainted. Honestly, to me, it feels like the internet trolls won and Sony is just pandering to them with this movie.

    Don't get me wrong, I'll see this without a doubt, but I really truly wish people were just better and would have understood that it was possible to enjoy the original movie and enjoy the remake/reboot for what it was. Also, I almost wish that the two universes were connected because I enjoyed the new cast just about as much as I enjoyed the original cast.

    And it was nice to see my daughter get excited for a franchise, that she already had a love for, portrayed by women instead of a bunch of dudes.

    I thought the reboot was actually pretty funny. The only thing that really turned me off was the very "bright" CGI that was used. Would've preferred they gave the ghosts a more creepy look to them.

    wanted the reboot to win but i thought it was pretty bad and cringeworthy. i think this franchise should just stay dead

    Bearing the Ghostbusters name, it didn’t come close to the level of comedy writing of the original two, especially the first one. Hemsworth played the dumb blonde role which was done great in “Game Night” but here we’re led to believe he’s so dumb that he wears lensless glasses. It just felt like it was aiming for 7 year old childrens comedy. It winked too much to the originals too instead of being its own thing. I thought it could be entertaining but it failed left and right for me.

    I'll echo what some other folks have said here/elsewhere – we don't really *need* a Ghostbusters 3. Just let it all be! I'm glad they tried the reboot with such a great cast (which I'll check out this weekend), but generally sequels to originals are awful and I don't doubt this will be the exception, especially after so long. Even with a good director.

    Will I see it? Probably. Am I excited? Not really. Just my two cents. ❤️

    I will watch this because it's Ghostbusters. Simple as that.

    I will say this though, the reboot had it's good moments - it just did not live up at all to what it could've been given who was involved. But really, it didn't merit the sheer mass of hatred it got, aside from the racist-as-fuck Leslie Jones character.

    Wrecked 'em? Damn near killed 'em!

    Took the words right out of my mouth. The level of hatred was absolutely ridiculous. Was it an overall good movie? No. But that’s not that fault of the cast. They’re all extremely talented and did the best they could with what they were given. It just wasn’t a well written or directed movie IMO. I’m excited to see what happens with this version though.

    Finally watched the new Ghostbusters… kinda meh. Not as awful as some made it out to be, but nothing incredible either. Paul Feig is so hit or miss for me. LOVED Bridesmaids, hated Spy (which critics enjoyed.)

    All that said, this feels like a bad take.
