Ghostbusters is back once again and will hit the theatres on July 15, 2016. However, if one bases a theory on audience reaction, the movie will fare poorly considering the trailer has received the most dislikes in YouTube history. Moreover, actress Melissa McCarthy has spoken publicly about how everyone never cared her opinion regarding not relating the movie to the original.
“It’s a reboot not a remake. Believe me the question was asked. I think it’s very confusing (the trailer). But then everyone said we don’t care what you think” McCarthy said on The John, Jay & Rich Show.
Ever since the trailer of the Ghostbusters 2016 movie was released on YouTube by Sony, viewers have been critical and vocal with their dislike. The trailer has received the most thumbs down in the history of YouTube, which currently stands at 718,352.
The new movie is a reboot featuring a cast of new characters. The events of the new movie takes place thirty years after the much beloved original franchise took the world by storm. The cast of the movie comprises some of the funniest actors in the movie industry – Kate McKinnon, Melisa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig and Chris Hemsworth.
Speaking on the negative reception of the movie trailer, director of Ghostbusters, Paul Freig said that he does not think the movie will fare poorly in the box-office. On the contrary, the cinema has a chance to do pretty well, as reported by Parent Herald.
Freig went on to mention that that the people who disliked the movie trailer were majorly disappointed with the cast featuring women as the main protagonists. The plot of the movie will stick to the original version barring a few changes.
