It might be under attack but “Ghostbusters” 2016 isn’t about to throw in the towel. The reboot released its latest international trailer that might make skeptics think twice about it.
The latest preview offered some footages that weren’t seen in the earlier releases, Comic Book noted. The clip featured actress Kristen Wiig covered with ghost vomit while shouting “Ghosts are real! Ghosts are real!” then actress Leslie Jones was chased by a mannequin.
Slash Film also took note of the “solid new footage” from the latest trailer even though the rest of it were shown earlier. However, it cited an article from Medium that suggested the reboot trailers might have been the victim of “poor comedy editing.” The publication identified a problem in the scene of Jones’ encounter with the possessed dummy as it noticeably skipped some lines.
Thus, Medium chose to delve into the intricacies of comedy editing that could have contributed to the hatred towards the “Ghostbusters” 2016 trailers. Based on the publication’s analysis, the US trailers might have missed out on the opportunity to present the reboot in the best light. Yet it’s not entirely the editor’s fault as trailers certainly pass several hands prior to its release, the publication remarked.
To promote the reboot further, a gathering of past and present stars is set to take place on the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show in honor of “Ghostbusters Day” on June 8, USA Today wrote. The original “Ghostbusters” eighties cast were Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts. The reboot cast are Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Leslie Jones. Director Paul Feig is certainly hyped about what he called an “epic summit.”
“Seeing the original and new ‘Ghostbusters’ all together (will be) like being in the presence of the comedy gods on Mount Olympus. This is an epic summit of some of the funniest people on the planet. Long live the Ghostbusters!” Feig told the publication.
June 8 also marks the re-release of the original “Ghostbusters” film in 800 theaters throughout the United States. Audiences also get a sneak peek at the reboot which will premiere on July 15, BGR wrote.
