Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters movie has been a point of contention for many fans of the original film. The new film’s first trailer didn’t smooth things over much, and instead became the most disliked movie trailer of all time on YouTube.
It turns out that even star Melissa McCarthy was a little confused about the trailer, which acted more like as sequel or a remake than a reboot.
“It’s a reboot not a remake,” McCarthy said on The John, Jay & Rich Show. “I know its weird that they say [in the trailer] ‘30 years ago’, but in this movie its like the first one didn’t happen. It’s a great story but it’s told totally differently. It’s four unlikely heroes, it’s in New York City, ghosts are taking over; it’s that same classic story but it’s not 30 years later ... it’s not dependent on the first one.”
Ghostbusters is directed by Feig and written by Feig and Katie Dippold. The film stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.
