Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are starring as the ghost-hunting foursome in the gender-bending take on the classic supernatural comedy franchise.
.... sigh.... This .... I have no words. Moving on.
Ok...the gender swapping thing is now 100% confirmed to be a gimmick nothing all If Paul wants to be a supernatural Bridesmaid then he can but why use the Ghostbusters brand name. Paul's comedy's like Bridesmaid, The Heat and Spy are not the same kind of humour as Ghostbusters. Honestly I really hope this fails, that'll show him. He basically had an idea for a film after Spy about the supernatural and the script which was probably in the making was most likely changed to Ghostbusters. He did the wedding "genre", he did the action and he's now done espionage.
This movie is turning to pure a@@
Thats' just too funny.....and it is just a movie and it suppose to be funny....
the women will be the heroes and the man will be the receptionist. i love it. all the insecure manchildren will be crying themselves to sleep over this. ^_^
The reason I take issue with the casting is because all of Fieg's films have the same feel - Ghostbusters is supposed to be unique. That's not to say that I don't find Fieg's films entertaining, but if he's only interested doing a copy and paste job than this will feel like a missed opportunity. Personally I think it would be more progressive to have a film where both men and women make up the main cast. We've seen Hollywood pander to feminism plenty, and it kind of rings hollow considering how many actresses are discarded by the studio system once they lose their sex appeal. Janine was always a cool character in the original films, she brought color to them. Hopefully Hemsworth has more in store for the role than just being a gag on role reversal. The original Janine wasn't a one note character.
This nazi feminism movement is really starting to beat people over the head with a steel bat. Whatever, this all just sounds like a gimmick premise anyways.
"this nazi feminism movement is really starting to beat people over the head with a steel bat" You only need to look up to see someone prove that point
wow, straight with the nazi comparison. and you arseclowns say women have a victim complex? they make a reboot of a movie that features female leads instead of males and you think that equates to the nazis? and you straight males are the ones getting oppressed, you know, like the jews right. you in a concentration camp? you in line for the gas chamber? no? you mean all that happening is a movie starring some women is threatening your minuscule masculinity? but that makes you as oppressed as the jews were in nazi germany right? you're pathetic. and don't you bloody start foxtrot. you're the biggest bloody hypocrite on here. this gg bull you spout, "creators should be able to create what they want". yeah, unless they want to create a story about women, then it's perfectly justified dictating what they can or can't do.
