Eh. I'll wait to see to more before drawing any conclusions.

Really, the biggest point against their authenticity is cropping -- we're only seeing what someone wants us to see. That could be an artistic focus or a desire to keep things under wraps... but it could also be an effort to deceive the viewer by isolating focus and hiding the background.

Some wide shots would go a long way.

To my mind, if they're faking the photos, it's as weird to me as people that fake photos of UFOs and Bigfoot. I don't understand the need to gain attention through deceit... but it definitely happens.

If they're trying to monetize views, that would check out as a motivation.

I have to admit I really like the otherworldly feel of the house/barn, a touch of the fantastical in a ghost story is nice. Makes me wonder if they bring back any gozarian dimensional portals how the architecture will look!

At the very least, they're two different props. The aging and the patterns of distressing appear too different for them to be one and the same.

It would be worth asking Candace Schneider if the holes on the mesh are hexagonal, because at points they almost look circular in the on-location photo.

Who thinks someone is going to try to hook up a new rifle to the chair pack that Kills the rust Bucket? In regards to the packs it looks like the right amount of aging to match the car. I say it's going to be legit, and we'll get some shiny new equipment once the kid's go through the original gear. If Rudd is playing a teacher I'm guessing shop class.

It will be interesting to see if the film uses and show's the new gear being produced with 3D printers. Maybe they'll show the kids scanning the Ecto and consulting with the dog's over the internet for design ideas?

There has been alot of speculation about the fate of Ecto 1A...

Just looking at all the photos of the Wrecktos vs the original Ecto 1 and more relevant to this conversation, Ecto 1A....the gas filler caps on the Wrecktos are much higher, and there is no reason for the movie production to change them, and honestly it would be incredibly difficult, and cost prohibitive to do something like that...

all that to say, it tells me that the ecto 1A still lives, somewhere in a warehouse waiting for a restoration hopefully!

TMZ's just posted a new gallery of photos: Link

Some more of Wrecto-1A (observe the rubber-covered nubs on the wing):

Looks like Ecto is going to spend some time in the garage location

Except both cars have had their stock engines replaced with more modern models.
Both Wrecto-1s exhibit the same non-standard location of the gas cap, and we know that the "patina" car, which features in this video, had her gas cap in the traditionally lower position, just like the caps on Ecto-1 and Ecto-1A.

The likely explanation is that in replacing the stock engines, the crew had to reposition the gas lines of both cars, leading to them having to raise up the gas caps on the driver-side rear-quater panel on both vehicles.

That's just how America looks. Our streets are paved in red, white and blue. I do notice a concerning lack of bald eagles. They may be added in post.

According to someone that was in Drumheller this weekend
that's a remote control trap sitting between the two cars.

"I got to watch the Ecto-1 following a R/C trap down main street Drumheller yesterday. Couldn't get vid as the crew were being picture nazis... lol Got lots of pics of the Ecto-1 as they parked/worked on it in the Comic convention parking lot!!!! lol"

if you read the TMZ interview it states
We're told the farm structures were built just for the movie, and word in the barn possibly belongs to either the Peter Venkman or Raymond Stantz characters ... and the Ecto-1's been stored there waiting for a comeback for the past 30 years.

now many of you may have been right lol

Holy shit, that's amazing. :shock: :-o No speeding up the footage for this movie. Goddamn, seeing Ecto-1 fishtail like that... It's like an episode of The Real Ghostbusters come to life.

I wasn't speculating. If it isn't one of these new Ecto's, then a 4th car has been purchased. Meaning we might be seeing an Ecto show pony at some point (the 1A's new costume).

Sweet Mercy that was awesome! A car chase with a proton pack mounted chair and a remote control Ghost Trap. There could be some serious action in this puppy. ;)

Honestly I think they used up the firehouse callback for ATC. It did absolutely nothing to improve how the film was received. So I don’t think there’d be any love loss if the Firehouse didn’t show up in this film. One thing that sticks with me is IF the Ghostbusters are still around and IF they still have the firehouse why are the Ecto 1 and Equipment over 1400 miles from away from it? Again I am so looking forward to the answers. :) :) :)

I actually think they used up the firehouse call back for ATC. It’s not impossible, but if they still have the Firehouse, why are the car and equipment over 1400 miles away from it? :) :) :)

My new hot take on the plot?
At some point in the past, the guys eventually started digging up information about Shandor and found out that Summerville was heavily linked to him and his legacy. At some point, they lost Egon (Maybe Egon went out to Summerville first and never came back?), so, they went their separate ways. Ray took some equipment, loaded up Ecto-1 and retired to the area to keep watch over the little town in case anything ever happened. At some point in the film, things DO start to happen, and Ray calls Peter and Winston in for back up.

Someone has posted over on Reddit
that they thought they saw a stunt double on the side of the road near the farmhouse set. The person in question is wearing an orange vest and jumper with sneakers.

Kinda feel like that's just a look in style right now, so it might just be a crew member. It's not the outfit we saw in the first "The Family’s All Here" photo Reitman posted to Instagram -- the woman in this photo isn't wearing short-sleeve bib-alls.

And to be clear, that doesn't look like a CWU-27. I don't see diagonal chest zips, and the collar is pointed instead of rounded.

Image

Apophenia, in my opinion. If I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will tell me.

What I DID find of interest is something the photographer did no emphasize-- the spraypainted signed.

"Behold there was..."

What? A great earthquake, and the sun became as black as sackcloth?

These spoilers don't reveal much but I'm glad I looked at them instead of avoiding them. I'm not sure I would like the movie they are making if I saw all these changes at once. But seeing them bit by bit has made this a movie I'm excited for.

Man I really have no idea weather these are just Easter eggs or if that quote is a direct clue that it is indeed Ray living in that house. I am thinking that he will be the primary mentor in this movie. I don’t know if the kids steal the car, or if Ray is the one the one sending them out on that Joy ride that they are taking in the shots we have seen.

I feel Ray is a mentor. In one of the photos from the chair extended if you look into the back of Ecto you can clearly see the outline of someone wearing ecto goggles and the outline is Aykroydian in my opinion although its probably a double.

I can't post the photo but maybe someone can.
