Ah okay I wasn't aware of this and thank you for that link but I will only believe this fully when they show the first promo shots I only say that as I've seen them change there mind come production but if they go through with this and it works that could really renew my faith somewhat in this franchise. ^_^

The actor I want to see come back for this the most is Ernie Hudson.

Ernie Hudson and Jeff Goldblum star in Ghostbusters III: Bustin’ Makes Me Feel Good. I’d watch that on a loop for the rest of my life.
PM me if you want specific spoilers for Shin Eva 3.0+1.0, but don't want the whole movie spoiled for you!

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the official name of the movie. Here's the trailer.
SPOILER: Show
Check out the name of the mine. It looks like we'll be learning more about Ivo Shandor. He and his followers were behind Dana's supernatural apartment building back in the original movie.

It’s gonna be so weird when the Ghostbusters reboot that is retconning the all female Ghostbusters movie out of existence pushes the message on the fan base that toxically attacked the previous cast & crew that “Anyone can be a Ghostbuster”.


There was already a female ghostbuster that was also a fan favourite of those evil "toxic fans" everybody keeps talking about, her name was Janine.

Being disgusted at the obvious use of a franchise to push a political agenda isn't being toxic, but nowadays it's all the rage to simply disqualify anything that goes against the politically correct narrative that has engulfed everything by literally demonize and antagonize everybody who doesn't align with it.

Insulting the fandom of the franchise was a pretty stupid move, but it was even more stupid when the product you were selling -there's no other name for it- was of such crappy quality. But calling everyone who didn't like the movie a misogynist was a wonderful way of divert the attention of how bad the movie was.

Gendo's Papa wasn't saying anyone who disliked the movie was a misogynist, though. He pretty specifically talked about the toxic part of the fan base, the sort who harassed Leslie Jones for being in a movie they disliked. I don't think the majority of people really have a problem with criticizing the 2016 Ghostbusters film, even when it is done on the basis of the film being a "pointless advocate of political agenda" that ruins the franchise. People however do have a pretty big problem with people who are so incensed about a movie as to harass an actress, which is understandable.

I know some people were met with criticism simply due to disliking the film, which is obviously wrong, but so do I think it is wrong to harass people.

Seeing tiny Stay-Puffs impale themselves instantly invokes images of the Mp EVAs impaling themselves during instrumentality. I find both deeply disturbing.
I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiaZ1Z4ZJoM Longer trailer.

I agree with that its dark and I swear the foot that lands on the guy's car is one of the terror hounds feet which begs the question is that Zool again? Or is this just shoved in fan service? Also, if the big bad is Gozer I doubt s/he would give a shit about some run down town in middle US...like wouldn't they have bigger fish to fry like being a demon god and all. Unless this film is gonna somehow pull and endgame and go everywhere is in trouble unless we kill the one big bad...

That trailer you posted is just someone putting the old trailer at the end of the new teaser.

As for the villain, there's an old mine in the trailer with Shandors name on it, so that's the connection between this small town and the monsters. JK Simmons is in the cast, so I'm like 90% certain he's going to be the main bad. My theories are he will be a descendant of Shandor, Shandor himself, or a form of Gozer closer to the original script.

As for will this movie be good... No idea. At least the old cast are actually playing the Ghostbusters rather than some awful cameos.

Thanks for clarication as I missed that detail. ^_^

That would be interesting as Ivo Shandor did build Gozors building 550 Central Park West, but they have never said where he came from before he built the building like his up bringing though the games reference his other building Orrery Chamber in Shandor Island so in that sense some beat down town could be where he did his test experiments with spirits and ones been left unchecked for ages.
