Ghostbusters trailer

So I’ve seen a lot of people saying they didn’t like the trailer. 

Now, pushing aside the ones who are just saying that because they’re raging misogynists (and that’s most of them, to be honest) there are some who just weren’t into the trailer as a whole and felt disappointed, and concerned that the movie won’t be good.

I’d like to remind ya’ll having doubts about the Ghostbusters trailer, about a trailer from this time last year that failed to entice me.

Mad Max: Fury Road. 

I remember those early teasers, which showed a lot of driving, Max growling, and the ladies reduced to screaming flailing prizes to be yanked from one car to another. It looked awful. It looked like a testosterone movie where women would be half-naked prizes in cages and men would make cars explode. A “boy movie.” So I was not interested. At all. 

Then the movie itself happened and I heard about the misogynistic boycott and I went, opening weekend, with my boyfriend, and we had a fantastic time. It was my favorite movie of the year and became one of my all-time favorite movies. I saw it twice, almost three times, in theaters. 

Another franchise from the 80s, resurrected today, with female characters headlining. 

So like, I’m willing to give it a bit of leeway right now. I’m willing to be hopeful. I’m willing to believe that they cut a trailer that didn’t work for everyone, but that this first trailer doesn’t mean the film itself won’t work for more people. 

And hey, even if it’s not the bestest film ever, it’s still probably gonna be pretty good. Ok. Not mediocre. With that cast, that production design, it’s kind of improbable for it to be mediocre. At worst, it’ll be a passable action flick with four female leads. At best, it’ll be magnificent, shiny, and chrome.
