Last week, the trailer for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and bimbo Chris Hemsworth, was named the “most disliked trailer in YouTube history,” for a predictably sexist reason. Although, to be fair, it wasn’t a very good trailer.
Even one of its stars thinks so.
McCarthy went on the Johnjay & Rich Show on Monday, and criticized the “very confusing” trailer. “It’s a reboot, not a remake,” she said. “I know its weird that they say [in the trailer] ’30 years ago,’ but in this movie, its like the first one didn’t happen.”
I’m sure that’s not going to upset the kind of person who cries about their childhood being ruined in YouTube comment sections.
“It’s a great story but told totally differently. It’s the same thing of four unlikely heroes, it’s in New York City, ghosts are taking over. It’s the same classic story but it’s not a ’30 years later,’ ” she said.
Asked if she thought it was confusing, McCarthy agreed and then revealed that she had raised some questions about it. “Believe me the question was asked. I think that it’s very confusing. But then everyone said we don’t care what you think.” (Via the Hollywood Reporter)
Never judge a book by its cover, or a Ghostbusters by its trailer.
