Monday Trailer Dump: The I Hope It Doesn’t Suck Edition

This first one stars Ryan Reynolds as an NPC trying out the PC life.

So basically an RPG movie but with the usual roles reversed. Well we knew that variant was coming sooner or later. I hope it doesn’t suck.

You will note that in the right corner is the 20th Century Fox logo.
But this films is supposed to be from the studio that brought you The Lion King

Please Movie gods, let them get it right this time.

I think the kid is supposed to be Venkman’s grandson. The actor playing the him was born in 2004. My initial reaction to that was, no way the timing doesn’t work out. Assuming Venkman married Sigourney Weaver right after Ghostbuster 2, (1989), and they immediately had a daughter she could only be…

Yeah, it turns out 1990 wasn’t really fifteen years ago.

I can honestly say, I don’t find myself hating this just by looking at the trailer.
That is an improvement.

Last is Wonder Woman 1984. It appears to take place in mid-Eighties so I insist on loving on general fucking principle until it gives me a reason not to.

I hope it doesn’t suck.

UPDATE: Yeah, I know it says Spengler on the uniform the girl finds but there is no way in hell they will get Bill Murray back gain. I know Harold Ramis is long dead but I checked IMDB and they are not publishing the names of the Grandchildren yet. Which means they want it to be surprise.

Also the mother seems to hate her departed Dad and that would fit with Venkman.

2ND UPDATE: The SJWs are P-I-S-S-E-D

When they destroy an intellectual property their standard fall back plan is to claim, that “the property was dead anyway.” It wasn’t SJWism that killed it, it had run out juice on it’s own and no one could bring it back from the dead.

While this is definitely what was going on in the cases of the Terminator and Charlies’ Angels. That wasn’t at all what happened with Star Wars and Ghostbusters.

Which The Mandalorian has now proven by becoming the highest streamed show in the history of that medium, beating out Stranger Things.

Their tears should prove intoxicating.

  1. I think they are going for 1980s because it is the exact opposent of tone of the Justice league films. Bright, colorful and full of optimism for the future.

    As far as Ghostbuster film…there was a shot of a sizable collection of Spores, Molds and Fungi, so it looks like the odds are that it was Egon that got a family going.

    I do like the hopeful tone in both of the films. It looks like the suits are getting the message that we are getting tired of seeing currentYear on film, and want to actually escape into a world where there is wonder, whimsy and adventure.

  2. Not checking any trailers anymore, the entertainment industry lost me completely.

    Only youtube movie dissections satisfy my thirst for entertainment, they’re 1000 times more entertaining than the movies themselves.

    I’m dying for SW EP IX to come out just so the youtube brigade [Fandom Menace] rip it to shreds.

    Same for all those films, and most of all I’m not watching a reboot of something successful ever again, they’re (((pointless and bad 99.9999999999999999% of the time))).

  3. but there is no way in hell they will get Bill Murray back gain.

    there’s already word that Murray did, in fact, show up on set.

    did he actually film anything more than a cameo? if even that? well, just like with the TRoS leaks, we won’t know for certain until the film opens.

    When they destroy an intellectual property their standard fall back plan is to claim, that “the property was dead anyway.”

    no, that’s not what he said. what he said is MUCH worse than that:
    by MAKING THE VERY FILM THEY WANTED IN THE FIRST PLACE

    to state it another way, Paul Faggy intentionally made a version of Ghostbusters which he, and all the rest of Hollywood, knew would piss off the fans of the original movie.

      You give them too much credit, those cretins have a complete lack of self awareness, they’re rampant narcissists.
