Is the Second “Ghostbusters” Trailer Better Than the First?
You still mad, fanboys?
After the first trailer for the lady-centric “Ghostbusters” reboot received the dubious honor of being the most disliked YouTube video ever, the filmmakers are back with a second one — and it looks like the movie’s going to be a bit self-aware.
“What do we think of these Ghostbusters?” a skeptical male news anchor says near the start. “Are they to be taken seriously?”
Later, Leslie Jones tries to surf across a crowd at a concert and lands flat on her back when nobody catches her. “Okay,” she yells, “so I don’t know if this is a race thing or a lady thing, but I’m mad as hell!”
Is it a better trailer than the first one, which got panned by film critics and savaged by the fine people of Reddit? Maybe — there are more crazy ghosts (did I see the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man in there??), some decent one-liners (Jones’ “Really?” at the girls with the selfie stick is my favorite part) and we’ve got more shots of Chris Hemsworth being cute. That’s always a plus.
But it doesn’t look like it’ll be enough to please the angriest critics — just a few hours after it went up, the trailer already had more than 8,000 dislikes and only 1,700 likes. Looks like some people are determined to troll this movie into the ground.
Kinda makes me want to see it more, honestly.
