A teaser trailer. Seems like it has some bad CGI effects, but looks entertaining.
I've read two really bad reviews of it that say it's suffocating in its fan service, and if you're not wholly, obsessively invested in it you'll get nothing out of it. It also features a character called Podcast. Presumably friends with Instagram Thread and Facebook Page.
They've basically ripped of Stranger Things, scribbled out a few names and details and replaced them with "Marshmallow Man lol" and "Slimer rofl". It's not as if Stranger Things is all that terrific.
The problem is that Ghostbusters is already firmly entrenched in culture. It made big bucks because it was light and refreshing. Today’s kids have been soaked in this sort of genre and probably won’t appreciate the novelty we experienced in the cinema a hundred years ago. They’ll probably try and cynically milk the franchise to diminishing returns as long as they can but today’s kids really deserve something of their own.
