Judging such a hotly contested movie over one trailer is going to be hard. Because while this isn't a great trailer, the first preview for Feig's Spy was absolutely awful as well, and look how that turned out. So for now, I'm going to remain optimistic. But I don't think there's much debate- this isn't a good trailer by any stretch of the imagination. The initial moments are refreshing and enticing, highlighting the classic elements of the original film and the legacy that it left. And then the rest of the trailer is.........eh. I don't know. It looks almost like a complete remake of the original, which could go well, but could also go very wrong. McKinnon looks hilarious, McCarthy and Wiig are always good, and Jones has some solid moments as well. So the cast is alright. It's not a good trailer, but it's just a trailer. I'm going to keep hoping that we finally get a worthy Ghostbusters follow-up.
Directed by Paul Feig and starring McCarthy,Wiig, Jones, McKinnon, Chris Hemsworth, Cecily Strong, Michael K. Williams, Karan Soni and Andy Garcia, Ghostbusters will hit theaters on July 15.
