New trailer confirms Ghostbusters is a sequel!

Earlier today the latest trailer for director Paul Feig's Ghostbusters was released, again stirring up a storm of negativity from fans and movie goers. Feig has hidden behind the faux feminism support that has followed the movie thus far, but the calls of racism and sexism against the movie and the low critical opinion the trailers have garnered are starting to reveal what the detractors of this movie have been saying all along. Once fans learn the terrible truths this new trailer reveals I expect the negativity towards the movie will reach biblical proportions - cats and dogs living together level catastrophe! Following the trailer below there will be many spoilers, so if you don't want this movie ruined, please leave after watching the latest trailer...

Recently the plot details for Ghostbusters were reportedly leaked, but with no way of confirming their authenticity, and the mediocre levels of narrative within the leak many fans including myself have been wary of mentioning them. That is all about to change.

Did you think that the inclusion of the firehouse in the trailers was for nostalgia? Think again. This plot leak had many worrying elements, one of which states that the Ghostbusters buy THE Firehouse and in the movie's closing moments Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones) discovers a tape recording dated 1984, of Dana Barrett. This scene has now been confirmed and is shown in the opening moments of the new trailer (pictured below). Thus, as the leak suggested this 'reboot' is in actual fact set within the same universe as the original movies and therefore is a sequel. Fans are aware that most of the original cast will feature in cameo roles that are not those of the characters they are known for playing, amidst this revelation such cameos are only going to confuse fans and moviegoers.

The plot leak also detailed the movie's climatic battle between the Ghostbusters and the movies antagonist Rowan, all of which is confirmed in the new trailer - Rowan develops a machine capable of attracting ghosts. After committing suicide Rowan becomes a powerful ghost that eventually possesses the body of the Ghostbusters secretary Kevin (Chris Hemsworth) before activating his machine. The machine attracts a plethora of ghosts that swarm to the center of New York, in response the mayor (Andy Garcia) sends in the Police, Army, and the Ghostbusters to deal with Rowan. Rowan orders the multitudes of ghosts to possess the bodies of the Army soldiers and the Police officers before taunting the Ghostbusters with a musical number (expect either Backstreets Back or most likely Michael Jacksons Thriller), which concludes with one of the Ghostbusters punching Kevin, releasing Rowan from his body.

Now a disembodied voice Rowan demands that the Ghostbusters choose the form of their destructor, to which Patty thinks of the graffiti she saw in the subway tunnels that inspired the group's logo thus creating a towering 100 feet tall version of the ghost from the Ghostbusters logo (not a Marshmallow Man as some outlets are reporting), but with sharp teeth and a red bow-tie. This creature is not only revealed in the closing moments of the new trailer (pictured above) but also in the forthcoming toy line based on the movie (pictured below).

Fans will remember that Gozer, the Sumerian God of Destruction, asked the very same of the original Ghostbusters in 1984, yet it is baffling, to say the least as to why this new antagonist Rowan also does this, he is just a powerful ghost, he is NOT the Sumerian god of destruction.


The revelation that this new movie is a continuation of the Ghostbusters franchise and not a reboot will open the movie to a whole new level of negativity and criticism, especially from fans who may have distanced the movie from originals because of the belief that is was a reboot. A musical number, Melissa McCarthy's eyebrow-raising acting to depict she is possessed, the lack of any comedy and the calls of racism and sexism... things just seem to be going from bad to worse for Paul Feig's Ghostbusters.
