The latest trailer has me cautiously optimistic. I want this movie to be good. The first Ghostbusters is my favorite film of all time, a spot it consistently battles with the first Rocky for.
That said; out of three existing Ghostbusters films, only that first one is good. A low bar to reach, but I also haven't seen anything in the trailers yet that confirm this one won't be bad. I want it to be good. I think it has the talent to be good. It just needs to stick the landing now.
I'm exactly the same for me it still looks like an episode of Stranger Things with some Ghostbusters themes shoehorned in. They are also trying way too hard to make Egon's grandkid look like him. It just looks forced and not an actual look of how his grandchild would actually look if that makes sense
Bunch of reviewers that normally line up well when I later watch their reviews have it a somewhat mixed bag.
By most accounts blows 2016 out of the water but so does a kick a testicles so that is not a high bar. All seem to reckon the people that made it knew the source, respected the source, shot it well/had nice models (as in real practical stuff) but might just have leant a bit into the fan indulgence/service aspect (not necessarily a bad thing) rather than truly trying to expand the lore or go much further with things leaving to erring a bit towards retread territory more than might have been ideal, and as you are mostly dealing with child actors rather than legend class comedic actors then it does not quite rise to those heights.
Whether it will make a new generation of ghostbusters fans is debatable but sounds like it is way more likely to than we are to see star trek or star wars in however many years it is now if the youth of today only have the modern trek/wars/heman/cowboy bebop/transformers efforts.
