If this movie *doesnt* end with a new cleaned up, nice and shiny Ecto 1, barreling out of that Firehouse in the almost exact same way as when the GB’s went to catch Slimer...someone made a HUGE mistake.I think the fact that they are going with Wreckto and there being some spoilers regarding it and the toys they are going to retire the Cadillac since they are becoming so hard and expensive to find.
I can see it in my head so clearly.
The new crew(whoever that ends up being) sits in the New York firehouse, anxiously waiting that first call. The phone rings. The music builds. A look of excitement on the new GB’s faces. “Here we go”. Janine or a new secretary picks up the phone “Ghostbusters...” and we CUT. Pure blackness. Those familiar doors slide open and we are almost blinded by the lights and sounds. The Ecto 1 all clean and fixed and gorgeous...in all her glory. She peels out at top speed, turns that corner and heads off into the night to unseen adventures. The camera HOLDS. A gelatinous green blob comes FLYING out of the firehouse and takes off after the Ecto 1.
If this is a passing of the torch then expect the NY HQ, Ecto and original Ghostbusters to be phased out with this movie. A clean cut, fresh start.
But you might be right. I don’t think it’s the right move, but we’ll see.
