I like the backstory for the director for this, since he was on the set of the first movie. I'm cautiously optimistic about this one.

I say, fitting time for a nap, eh what?

I'm sure discussion about this film will be handled with quiet dignity and grace.

Well, given that this is what people wanted given the circumstances (son of the original director, etc) Iíll be cautiously optimistic.

Maybe it's referencing how the franchise went back to a direct sequel after a failed reboot? Like, how it went from the original Halloween (1978), to the reboot Halloween (2007), then to the direct sequel to the original Halloween (2018).

[up][up] I'm guessing after two reboot movies by Rob Zombie, Halloween made a comeback nine years afterwards as a sequel to the original film that ignores all previous sequels and takes place 40 years after the original and everyone pretty much loved it? note 

Ergo, it probably only makes sense that after Ghostbusters had a reboot that ended up going pretty much nowhere, THIS seems to take place in the same universe as the original two Ghostbusters movies. Or maybe even just the first one since the initial sequel's reception was a little...contested...if I'm not mistaken. (And Halloween (2018) ignored even the original Halloween II)

It feels pretty significant that the creepy music the teaser uses is the same one from the first movie's first few seconds...

TL;DR: What [up] said. (You do some research and someone beats you to the punch like a [nja]. Or a ghost [nja]. Sigh. sad )

I was never that big a fan of the Ghostbusters movies. Not that I dislike them - they were just before my time. I can't say I'm particularly looking forward to this sequel considering the Internet backlash from the 2016 reboot. Which is a shame. I'd like to get into it, but all the entitled, sexist, middle aged fans leave a bad taste in my mouth

I would only be interested if Kate Mc Kinnon was in it somehow.

I have a bad feeling about this. That it's happening so soon after the failed reboot makes me worried they're just making it to give the misogynistic gargoyles what they want.

Hmm...this has my curiosity. The actual trailer will decide if this will have my attention.

I wonder if the Real Ghostbusters cartoon is canon to this "universe".

An interesting point that it's being directed by Jason Reitman the son of the director of the original Ghost Busters who will also be producing it.

Does that change anyone's idea's on it. I'm going to watch cautiously from the sidelines until more news comes out.

Didn't The Real Ghostbusters do an episode that explicitly said the original film was just an adaptation based on their exploits?

Care to elaborate?

Halloween went on for several films when the original creator, John Carpenter, came back torched the old continuity to pick up where the original left off despite there already being a reboot. This situation is almost hilariously similar.

This makes the second time I've heard of a reboot being ignored in favor of just continuing the originals. Either Reitman got lucky and felt passionate about continuing his father's work, or they really disliked the reboot.
