It's only been 15 hours since Entertainment Weekly revealed Jason Reitman would be directing the third film in the original Ghostbusters trilogy, and they've dropped another scoop in the subsequent time, the first teaser for the new project - which can be viewed via the original article: LINK

New Ghostbusters movie

A new star trek series with Picard

A good Spider-Man game

A new men in black film

An unbreakable sequel

Nintendo console selling well and is praised



What year is this? It's like 80s 90s and 2000s are all merging together in a crisis of infinite times lol. I love it though

I've watched this teaser five times already, and it gives me chills everytime! I can't wait!
Oh, man...so much.

Me: "Oh, they released a "teaser" huh? Ill give it a watch, but Im not going to be one of those obsessive fan boys that picks every second apart."
Me after watching: *Watches 10 more times and obsesses about every detail*

...yeah....

The logo on Ecto looks off to me.
Well at least it's obviously slightly oversized, i'd say.

But nontheless this might be "a new hope" (sorry - i couldn't avoid this crossing wink) to all the ghostheads who remained unsatisfied or disappointed (including me) with the 2016's reboot. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

The handful of times I've watched the teaser make me hope it was actually directed by people involved with the actual film. The long tracking shot, leaves blowing around, the SOUNDS - everything about the tone is perfect.

It reminds me of shots in the openings of both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II.

I admit that it's a neat teaser, and if they're talking Summer 2020 it would suggest things have move pretty far along under the radar.

But as is my way, I realize, I'm not really going to get very excited until it's practically here. I was skeptical about 2016 too until the promo photos of the flight suits and equipment started to come out.

I hope it's good, but simply cannot summon any expectation good or bad yet.

You know what's funny about that? Rush production schedules are a Ghostbusters tradition(Gb16 not included).

The first one was greenlit, without a finished script, in May '83. Start shooting in late October for a June release. And this was BEFORE computers. Everything had to be built and done by hand. Plus on the first film every FX vendor was booked so the producers had to get Richard Edlund to start up his own FX studio, BOSS films. All that had to be done in under a year. And it worked.

The second one is even more impressive. Shooting didn't start until November '88 and they were still shooting footage that needed FX work in April '89 for a June 16th release. ILM had to put their foot down and not take anymore FX shots.

So if this movie follows suit, Jason is just following in his father's footsteps. The first two Ghostbusters films are benchmarks for rushed schedule on big budget FX flicks. Usually there is two plus years of prep, months of pre production. The first film is a damn miracle that it came together the way it did.

The logo on Ecto looks off to me.
It looks about normal size for the logo on the car:

- Not only that, but the visible mis-alignment of the red and black sections of the logo indicates that's the decal in-place on the car, rather than something that's been digitally modded.

I think the updated EW article indicated that Jason directed the teaser trailer.

If that's the case, fantastic! I just realized that my OWN proton pack is out back, hanging on the wall of my shed, covered in a sheet collecting dust. I guess it's time to dust her off and charge her up!

Well, call me a nitpicker or worse, but i'm pretty conviced that at least the no-ghost-logo on the rear/backdoor was actually a bit smaller in the movie/on screen, than what they did with the restoration. So it's correct of course as far as it's on the actual car right NOW, but back then in the original movie it was a bit smaller... that's why i could agree with anybody feeling it's looking slightly off.
No offense though - this dosen't make the teaser less promising!

same here! dusting off the profile..out of the woodwork.

forget about the damn logo on the car...Ghostbusters 3 (or at least thats what we assume it is ) is coming. enjoy it. :-P

im still in shock by the teaser, is this real life? i feel like i found the arc and dont know where to go from here. haha.

here's to hoping its all up hill from here. cant wait to see what awaits us in the coming year.

"the ghostbusters are back and all brand new, c'mon!"

This is what we shoud've got in 2016 instead of the reboot. A lot of people that aren't ghostbusters fans who just see the teaser probably thinks its just a followup to that movie instead. I tried to like that movie but it was off on so many levels. summer 2020 can't get here soon enough!

The 2016 movie wasnt a super bust.... people dont understand that if we would have supported in more, we may have received a more ghostcorp franchise. Multiple movies base on different locations could have produced more ghostsbuster vehicles, ghostbuster tech, a broader thought process in general. GB2 started the broader outlook.... but people abandoned it due too GB reboot.

It was; i've just thrown a quick&dirty montage to point this out for those interested:

But since this is of course an restoration-car-issue, not an actual flaw or turndown of the teaser, it would be better discussed in a seperate ecto restoration-rant thread i quess :wink: ... is the one already out there by the way?

Maybe the logo is bigger now because they took off the GB2 logos and put new larger ones on?...while I don't expect them to count it, it had the original logo again in the video game which was after GB2...That's my canon and I'm sticking with it :)

Wouldn't think so, 'cause afaik ecto-1a is still physically another car, so the was no reason for the gb-2 logo to be attached to the ecto-1, which was running around at the beginning of GB2 with it's original logos still on (plus the sirene-cover upside-down 'n stuff...but that's another story :wink: )

I know the 1A is a different car...production wise however because in the universe of the film the car is supposed to be the same...the logos would have been changed. Story wise the cars are the same. They're not gonna use the original car from GB1 because it sits on the soy lot and doesn't run too well now anyway which is why a fan car was used for the Wal-Mart commercial. Why the logo is bigger then it was on the original car I don't know production wise, story wise I'm just pretending because they put new decals on it.

The Wal-Mart commercial is one thing, as they needed it to drive from place to place, but given this one's stationary, it easily could be the Ecto-1 from the first movie.

Production wise, the logo could be bigger because the people footing the bill wanted it bigger... Or somebody made a mistake when they were scaling it to print.

Guys, companies change logo's all the time. It's not that far out there they changed GB2 sign after a while. No one batted an eye in the videogame as well, and that one was considered canon for the longest time. ;-)

Granted, 59 Cadillac Ambulances are HARD to find, but that sort of thing has Never stopped a studio from making more than one vehicle before. :P Or repairing/re-fitting something that needs it.
Seriously, the (1984)Ecto-1 is just as important as the Cast, Packs & Logo itself when the movie is mashed together... In a hopeful 2020 masterpiece.
