'Ghostbusters' Cast Return to Set for Reshoots

'Ghostbusters' Cast Return to Set for Reshoots

The cast of the new Ghostbusters movie walks on set of their reshoots on Sunday (May 1) in Los Angeles.

Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Leslie Jones were seen headed to their location. Kate McKinnon was not seen with the ladies at that time.

The new Ghostbusters flick is set to hit theaters in just a few months on July 15, 2016.

It was just revealed that the remake’s trailer currently is the most “disliked” trailer on YouTube, with a whopping 507,610 dislikes. There’s no official reason as to why so many have chosen to “dislike” the video. Many of the comments on the YouTube video have discussed the fact that the film features an all-female leading cast.

    Many other comments on the youtube video discussed how it was unnecessary to reboot this particular franchise as well as how unfunny and unoriginal the humour in the trailer was. Please try and have the integrity to address these other widely held concerns rather than jumping on the ‘everyone hates it only because they’re women’ bandwagon.

    “Many of the comments on the YouTube video have discussed the fact that the film features an all-female leading cast.” Again with this crap, it has NOTHING to do with them being women, it has everything to do with the trailer not being funny, using offensive stereotypes, and flat out lying to the audience referencing the first movie as if this was a sequel when it’s actually a reboot. I didn’t laugh at any of the jokes in the trailers, not once, and I wouldn’t have laughed if they were played by the best comedians of this generation, male or female.

  • Glebs Litvjaks

    Sony knows that the film will bomb, so they are doing damage control. They delete comments with well worded criticism, as well as negative comments left by women, but leave troll comments alone. This way later they can point there and say: “See? Muh soggy knee!”

  • Ebola-Chan✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story both have female protagonists yet their like to dislike ratio shows that people still liked the trailer. How is it that this hate campaign towards female protagonists hasn’t managed to downvote either of those trailers the same way that they downvoted Ghostbusters. I find it hard to believe that they wouldn’t know about those movies since they have many more views than the Ghostbusters movie did.

    Perhaps it’s just that the trailer was unfunny and people don’t like seeing an established series rebooted. I personally think that the trailer was confusing and annoying. Confusing because it starts off making it seem like a continuation and then showing them establishing the Ghostbusters for the first time. Annoying because of the horrible dialogue between the characters.

  • Aj Retro

    The wide dislike of this movie is not because the cast is all women, it’s because:
    -It’s a completely unnecessary remake/reboot of a highly-beloved franchise
    -The jokes in the trailer are juvenile and lame. It took the cleverness and originality of the original and dumbed it down to a generic, forgettable PG-13 summer comedy.
    -Media outlets used the “all women” gimmick as a shield and a chance to take potshots at their audience for virtue signaling points. The accusatory, hostile tone and contempt many media outlets have for their readers is growing old for many.

    This movie will bomb. Not because it stars women, but because it’s a lowest-common-denominator take on a classic film that no one asked for besides a small subset of perpetually offended grievance-mongers

    Do reshoots mean rework into GhostBusters 3 or just attempts at funnier jokes?

  • MusouTensei

    Here is why I disliked the trailer (and aslo can conform that Sony deleted any criticism that didn’t mention the female cast to manufacture a controversy)

    It’s a slapstick parody of the original, the original had mostly subtle humor, the parody is in your face slapstick humor. Also the ghosts look worse than the original. The trailer is garbage, simply not funny, and that international one is not better.

  • Llort Bew

    Many of the comments discussed the terrible jokes, the terrible CGI, the racism and why the reboot was not necessary but they were all deleted by Sony (I had many comments deleted too).

  • Shannon Jesso

    There’s a difference between criticism and downright insulting. Not to mention a lot of the comments are just offensive to read so I don’t blame them from removing them. Nobody wants to read that.

    Also, If Sony knew the movie was going to Bomb, they would never have green lite the project in the first place.

  • Shannon Jesso

    That’s Bullshit, there’s no racism in that trailer.

  • Shannon Jesso

    It could be an number of things. Sometimes in the editing process you realize some scenes didn’t work as well as they should, or the sound quality isn’t the best or the director realizes that scene could’ve been better. So they reshoot scenes. It’s a common practice for any movie.

  • Billoriley9191

    If this trailer had all men, It would still be the most hated trailer.

    Anyone acting like this is because of the female cast is just trying to pull the sexism card and they truly have no idea what they are commenting on.

  • MadHattie

    My youtube comments were deleted because I said the jokes were TV Sitcom flat, It’s a racist film, and that it seemed more like a Scooby Doo remake than Ghostbusters. But anything for a Narrative and free drama publicity, eh? You go white folk!

  • Matt The Golem

    The only non-scientist in the GB group is a sassy black woman who says things like the overused cliche “oh hell no”

  • Shannon Jesso

    If you think That’s racist than you don’t know what real racism is.

  • Matt The Golem

    Yeah it’s not really racism, but it is offensively unfunny – and low-effort, trite, lazy writing. When a contemporary comedy script with a $140 million budget sinks to lifting lines from old tv shows and referencing The Exorcist (1973) the result is sad, not funny.

  • Matt The Golem

    Sound quality can be fixed in post production; that would not be a reason to justify the cost of getting the cast and crew back together to shoot.
    Paul Feig is a hack director so it’s just as likely the re-shoots are being done to add more vomit and poop slapstick sight gags to this trainwreck of a movie.

  • Llort Bew

    That’s what some of the comments said.

  • Llort Bew

    $140 million for this shit. I smell money laundering.

  • Johnny Al Lenn

    They’re not removing the offensive comments from youtube though, they’re removing everything but them, especially all of the valid criticism which has nothing to do with the cast. I believe they’re doing this deliberately so they can avoid facing up to the fact that they simply have a bad film on their hands and make it look like it’s just sexists saying negative things about it when in fact most people are unhappy about it’s quality. The fact that other female led films like the last and next Star Wars among others haven’t gotten this kind of reception destroys the narrative pushed by a lot of the media that the negative reaction to this is mostly rooted in sexism.
