    Is there something inherently wrong with Sony Pictures?

    Spider Man for example.....:)

    Tony Vinciquerra, CEO of Sony Pictures, said his "door is closed" to Spider-Man - so there's no hope that the superhero will re-enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future.

    IMO because of these:

    Blatant and unapologetic product placement
    Ghostbusters (2016)
    Pixels
    Smurfs
    Emoji Movie
    Sausage Party
    Angry Birds movie
    Adam Sandler and friends' movies like Paul Blart
    Holmes & Watson
    and many more

    Edit: RLM gif for extra spice (I know most of those pictured aren't Sony)

    To their credit, they to do eek out a good movie every now and then such as Into the Spider-Verse, 007s and apparently even Once Upon a Time in Hollywood through Columbia.

    You mean the part where Disney demanded 50% of the earnings of Spiderman's future standalone films, as opposed to the 5% they had agreed to when they made the deal with Sony? It takes two to tango.

    This raises my opinion about Sony Pictures currently unfortunately not really synonymous.:)

    What is it, after all, it is not to change.:)

    Because it's about a new generation of ghost busters, inheriting/carrying on the original crew's legacy.

    I like that title better than "Afterlife".

    I'm getting a heavy Stranger Things vibe in the trailer and I dont mean because of a certain cast member.

    So skip seeing stranger things altogether (as opposed to just series 3) then? Can do.

    I find it hard to believe that a discovery so physics, philosophy and such shattering as the existence of ghosts, much less as publicly as happened in the previous films, would be as forgotten as it is made out to be there.

    Tentatively optimistic there actually. It is of course a trailer/teaser but had a few hallmarks of nostalgia/bringing it back done right, and largely lacked the warning signs of a cash grab/name recognition type deal. Can't say I will have any interest in the would be sequel to this one (with a name like legacy, the characters there and in general what film doesn't hope to become a franchise these days?) but I would not mind this.

    Yare yare daze. So, I've never been into the Ghostbusters franchise (I was born during a time when it wasn't relevant), so it doesn't have a whole lot of meaning to me, but I still want it to be good.

    I'll probably get roped into seeing it with some family, if it doesn't get canceled.

    Yeah the trailer reminded me of Stranger things...

    I don't think it's going to have the ghostbusters feeling, instead it's gonna have angsty teen post future 90s feeling to it.

    I was excited at first, but now not so much haha. I feel that it might be a good movie, but probably not a good ghostbusters movie if that makes sense.
