    Ghostbusters 3: Afterlife (July 10, 2020)

    Jason Reitman, son of Ivan (who directed 1 & 2), will co-write and direct this one. It's a sequel to the 80s, not a reboot. Present day, what's happening to the original crew. Set for 2020 release. Will be interesting to see what they do (Aykroyd's original idea for the third one is New York descends into Hell and no two people speak the same language so communication is almost impossible). Also, because they could never get the third movie going, the game from 2009 served as the third story.

    I'm happy about this, but fuck Bill Murray for delaying this so long. Now we can't have Egon...

    Didn't see the teaser trailer earlier when I saw it reported on Youtube. The report I watched said Murray hadn't actually signed on yet. Maybe they're wrong, but if not, seems like they're jumping the gun a tad with nothing done beyond the writing.

    After the last attempt seems like eventually you would decide to let sleeping dogs lie, but who knows. Maybe a revived long dead franchise won't be terrible. Maybe.

    I also find it funny how they're pretty much saying "okay, we did all guys, and we tried all girls, so lets just make everyone happy and do half and half, okay?" Not that that's a bad thing, just amusing

    I sometimes think it was just actors which is what made it good and nothing else. It seemed like they really enjoyed the movie and had fun.

    Yah, could very well have been a lightning-in-a-bottle 80's movie that should just be left alone.

    But since they're still hellbent on desecrating this corpse I can hope

    The Power Rangers (2017) was fine. Juno, which Jason directed, was great. Rocket Science, Assassination of a High School President, Charlie Bartlett, Beware the Gonzo, Brick, Orange County, Grind, Goonies, Breakfast Club, Superbad, Easy A, and many others have teen/high school characters and they are good movies (some are guilty pleasures).

    It does happen but several of those were non teenagers playing teenagers and/or established actors (or at least strong support from established actors). All too often we see them throwing relative unknown kids in these roles.... So I'm gunna wait till I see a cast

    If they are trying to do an "Extreme Ghostbusters" type thing...depending on the cast and storyline, I would be cautiously optimistic.

    People I talk to in reality, not online, didn't seem to be bothered by the all female thing. It was the ignoring the original that was turning people off. I had several people mention that even if it was a soft reboot, if it had acknowledged that the original had happened in-universe, it wouldn't have been a big deal.

    My friends and I are of the opinion that it was manufactured feminism covering up a shitty movie. Especially the stance they took defending the trailers from critics. I know there's a bunch of gross man children online, but calling Angry Video Game Nerd a sexist for refusing to watch it was too far. Above all that, it was just a waste of four great comedians who have done way better work in the past.

    Now it's floating in bargain bins. GJ, Sony.

    Basically the stance of any real person I talked to. It wasn't women in general or even necessarily the specific ones they used that was the issue so much as it was half being used as the selling point of what was effectively a knock off that didn't understand the original and half bait for said man children to drum controversy for free press. which might have worked if they had ya know put that much thought and effort into the movie itself and hadn't done the full blown if you don't like this you are sexist reviews before it even came out
