Goodness gracious me. You’d have thought some kind of atrocity had been committed! To think that a studio has the gall the remake a classic!?! And not only that, but to recast the principles with an all-women line-up!?! That’s it! My childhood has been destroyed!
What. Utter. Tosh!!!
1984 was a water-shed year for my 14-year-old self when it came to cinema-going and Ghostbusters was right up there. Do I feel like my childhood has been defiled? Of course not! If you’re one of those people who do, you really do need to get out more. There’s a whole world out there don’t you know?
Paul Feig is a good film maker. Bridesmaids, Heat, Spy, they’re all fun films and he clearly likes working with Melissa McCarthy, who I like very much. Along with Kristen Wiig and Chris Hemsworth, there’s a lot going right for this remake in the casting department. It’s also got a few returning actors in the shape of Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd and Sigourney Weaver as well as Annie Potts and Enrie Hudson, so it’s ticking a fair few boxes as far as I’m concerned. So let’s just wait until it’s actually been released before we make a judgement, shall we?
Now, I’m not one to trumpet announcement trailers. You know? The little “clips” telling us when the actual trailer is going to be released, but the thing about this one is the 5 note refrain at the end of the piece. It made it worth the watch! Take a gander…
So there you have it. We’re going to have to wait until next month to get a good look at how this particular production is shaping up. But with a 15th July 2016 release date, not too long after that to form an actual opinion.
Thank you for reading 🙂
