Ghostbusters’ Second Trailer Fights Both Ghouls And (Internet) Trolls

by Morgan Gartner

Yesterday, the second trailer for the new Ghostbusters film was released, first via Facebook and Twitter, then on YouTube. The trailer features more slime, more humor and an impressive show of special effects. The film, starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones comes to theaters July 15th.

The first trailer was met with a barrage of dislikes and comments from YouTubers critiquing mainly the film’s female cast. Although those who seem (somewhat irrationally) passionately opposed to the film claim their opposition is not due to sexism, the influx of comments bear some pretty convincing evidence to the contrary. The resistance to Ghostbusters seems somewhat unwarranted, especially considering that past reboots have not been met with nearly this level of opposition—Coincidence? Probably not. However, Hollywood’s criminal record against classic films does have us all a little worried about the film’s premier.

So will the film be an awesome reboot of a classic, or will it join the ranks of infamy with reboots such as Evil Dead and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Watch the trailer and make your prediction.
