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.
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.
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.
