You know, if there’s one thing I can tell you about the genre fanbase, it’s that it is passionate beyond words. Apparently a very disgruntled fan upset about the remake of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters has been trolling him on Twitter for months. Finally Feig had enough.
Gotta say… Feig is only human – and we’ve all been there – so let’s not just jump all over him as we’ve never walked a mile in his shoes. There’s no need for a witch or bitch hunt, though it’s never wise to light a fire amongst your fanbase. Things like this have a tendency to become bigger than they need to be.
As for said troll, we totally get where you’re coming from in terms of being disappointed that we’re not getting the movie we all thought that we would… but that doesn’t mean the new one will be terrible. Hell, it doesn’t mean that it will be good either. The point is that it’s unfair to judge a movie without seeing a single frame of film. How about we all just step back and breathe?
This too shall pass.
In the Paul Feig-directed Ghostbusters, Melissa McCarthy is Abby Yates, Kristen Wiig is Erin Gilbert, Leslie Jones is Patty Tolan, and Kate McKinnon is Jillian Holtzmann.
Wiig and McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash-forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.
The Ghostbusters reboot will haunt the big screen on July 15, 2016.
