Finally, a trailer!

It looks fuckin great! ...then falls apart towards the end with "modern" comedy. But that's bound to happen.

Also, the weapons they use are Durrrr... looking, but again, modernization.

What gets me is that I believe "Egon" has the Peter characterization, while "Peter" has the Egon personality. But hey, it's just a change of hair color.

The firehouse looks great, the locales look great. The car looks amazing. The fat white chick playing Ray's character will definitely be a problem, though, and its a shame they cast her. She just eats the scene, her comedic timing is bad.

Oh so it is going the sequel route judging by that opening text. I kept hearing yes and then no and then yes but kinda as to just what the deal there was.

I'd seen the photos and was actually okay with it looking like some borderline fallout piece of tech cobbled together from random components.

...Then this one had the pistols and that was just pretty stupid.

Paul Feig/the studio.

The pistols and the thing the fat chick punched with, those were just awful.

I call it a reboot but only because it seems like one? They very well may reference the older GB, I dont know.

Yeah it was the "30 years ago" bit. It seems like it could go either way, I didn't really notice anything to conclusively say yes or no.

I'm guessing the pistols thing is gonna be the capper to some running thing with mckinnon's character being the prototypical "crazy engineer constantly trying to top stuff"

Hol is probably right. So I'm proceeding with the assumption this is a reboot and the "30 years ago" was just because its the first trailer. Any references will likely be kind of incidental callbacks...I could see Aykroyd showing up somehow but not as ray, I even saw a theory he's the villain somehow.

I'm betting the hearse gets destroyed/something and at the end right before it goes to credits (there's no way sony isn't trying for a franchise) the "classic" one shows up as they go off to another call.

Going by SNL unless Leslie Jones can really reign it in that's the achilles heel. McCarthy also can go way too scene chewing too though.

Kate McKinnon I'm predicting is gonna be the part of this everybody likes. Again just going by what I've seen on SNL.

There's no barometer aside from that for Jones and McKinnon I can think of, or I'm drawing a blank on other examples.

Also this is half the internet (about anything): GHOSTBUSTERS TRAILER REVIEW - Red Letter Media

Yes I know I just did try guessing act 3 based off a 2 minute trailer.

The trailer didn't wow me, but it was fun. I love Kristen Wiig so I'm going to go see this anyways

Wiig seems like kinda a given.

It's gonna come down to whether or not Paul Feig can write worth a damn since I've only seen one of his movies and he didn't write it.

Looking it up his co-writer did the one I have seen. So who knows.

Wiig is hit or miss for me. McCarthy, too. No idea who the other two are.

I'll rent it, but not gonna get a babysitter for it.

It seems like a 'wait until it comes on tv' thing.

Unless the reviews end up being mind-blowing. Then again I often end up disagreeing with those.

Female Egon has a certain sexyness

From her mannerisms I think she's more a Peter? In the first ghost scene, there's a Pringle hanging out of her mouth.

She is seen with her feet up on a desk -- pretty sure Peter did the same thing.

Wiig writes an entire board of quantum physics stuff. She also wears more "plain" clothing.

When Leslie Jones shows the hearse, McKinnon has a sarcastic kind of smile and clap combination. Wiig looks perturbed.

McKinnon has on a wig and hat to scare Wiig. (weirdly enough I am pretty sure this happened in the cartoon)

Yeah I think they're going for her as the zany or sarcastic one. Which I guess would be peter.

It remains to be seen if they're trying to do 1 to 1 analogues or just general variations (if they're trying to do direct copying down to line delivery and all, horrible idea). Wiig and McCarthy seem to be the Ray and Egon ones where one is super into the paranormal and the other is a little more buttoned down.

There's controversy about Jones' character since shes black and is the only one not a scientist.

Jones has said the correct thing along the lines of "If my character WAS a doctor, people would complain about what KIND of doctor."

But naturally she is the Winston analogue. Just overblown. Winston was supposed to be a marine with a phd though...which is ludicrous so I understand why it wasnt in there.

He was? I don't...remember that. I haven't seen either of those in a while. I just remember the "if you're paying I'll believe whatever you want" line. Or however it went.

Them establishing her as somebody who has insider knowledge of or moreso access to the local infrastructure almost makes more sense.

Winston was in the book. Not the movie.
