You can hear what sounds like the magnetic coil at 0:09s and the crank knob at 0.28s.
After trying a number of times, in the end it finally powers up with that glorious sound.
The proton pack straining to power up is metaphorically the strain of getting GB3 off the ground after all that has happened. The "actual sequel" GB3.
This is huge. We've been waiting for this since 1989.
The teaser plays on things the 2016 movie did not touch. The cyclotron bootup and shutdown sound (not synchrotron) and the '59 Ecto-1. These signs indicate to me that it looks to be a nostalgia fest, a true, final sequel to Ghostbusters, that the entire original fanbase has been waiting for since 1989.
The teaser looks similar to the dark, gritty tone of '84. No kids, No glitzy franchises, no legions of Ghostbusters running around all over the planet.
Just someone discovering things long abandoned, neglected, forgotten.
Working to get an actual proton pack to fire up again.
Uncovering the abandoned and rusted Ecto-1.
On a dark, gloomy night.
Discovering a memory, a feeling lost in time.
Is it Ray Stantz? I can think of no-one more deserving of being in that barn on that night.
(apparently there was more footage but I didn't catch it, thought that was the end of it all)

“Not an all-female team this time, but the main character/Ghostbuster is a 12-year-old girl!”Supposedly this guy is somewhat reliable for leaks. Doesn’t mean it’s true of course.

I don't watch Entertainment Tonight and had no clue there was more content to follow. Sorry guys.

Then later on, Egon concluded a small community in northern New Jersey was the likely epicenter of major psychic activity.

But if there's any thruth to this plot about the young kids and the family moving back to a small town the teaser could be more than a just a standalone gag...
Anyway. If this teen thing turns out to be true, I'm not worried about it. I have full confidence in the Reitmans.
Also- don't forget that the some of the most cherished blockbusters from around the time the original Ghostbusters came out centered around teens.
E.T., The Goonies, Gremlins, Stand by me, The Breakfast Club, The Karate Kid...
Kids didn't seem to bother anyone in those movies.
Neih, I ain't afraid o' no kids.
In the first movie, when Spengler, Venkman and Stantz leave the bank, Stantz says "But my parents left me that house. I was born there!" I'm wondering if this barn is a part of that very house that they took out a third mortgage against.
I don't buy into the 12 year old girl being the main character in the sense that she is going to strap on a proton pack and start busting ghosts. However, if true, then this girl may have some kind of special ability that allows her to communicate with the undead or is otherwise haunted by something much like Dana was in the first two movies.
Other trades are reporting that Sony is looking to cast four teenagers. Maybe they'll strap on some gear like Extreme Ghostbusters?
I could see these kids being told ghost stories by their crazy neighbor/relative - which turns out to be Ray Stantz. Then this 12 year old girl somehow channels this new threat, Stantz fixes up the gear, and he and Winston train these new kids to save the day. Something like that anyway.
I think it's going to be a struggle for a lot of fans to distance themselves from the "getting the band back together/passing the torch/franchises everywhere/going back into business" type of storylines that we've all been pondering for the last 30 years. We are more than likely going to get something completely original and pretty different from the first two movies; and that's okay by me.
Predicting a once in a lifetime, Oscar worthy performance from Dan Aykroyd.

(Click here if the image doesn't show up).
I think Jason is going to make this movie JUST FOR ME. No I'm kidding but based on that small trailer snippet and then this picture? He's doing things OLD SCHOOL. No over done CGI. It's going to be like Blade Runner 2049. A mix of both. Miniatures, optical compositing, rotoscoping and matte paintings. I swear to god I'm going to cry if that's the case, because I'll feel like it was made just for me. That's all I've ever wanted from an aesthetic stand point. It'll be like how Wes Anderson does effects.
Knock this out of the Park Jason. I believe in you. This was your destiny. Use old school methods, use Elmer Bernstein's score, hire the best production designers and cinematographers.
That's one other thing that bothered me about the reboot. The first two movies crew reads like a whose who of filmmaking legends. Check out these names: Laslo Kovac, John De Cuir, Richard Edlund, Steve Johnson, Elmer Bernstein, Michael Chapman, Bo Welch, Rick Heinrichs, Dennis f****g Murren, Phil Tippet, Randy Edelman. And that's leaving out the Harold Ramis's, Bill Murray, Ivan Reitman's etc
Someone should count the Oscar nominations for the names in those crews. The crew for the reboot had...
Not a single "top mind" in any field. Not in photography, effects, production design or otherwise. Just as a interesting contrast between the two ways the two different directors approached the movies. One got the cream of the crop. The other settled on people still making a name for them selves(which isn't wrong. Everyone starts out somewhere. It's just an interesting contrast)

Kingpin wrote: ↑January 18th, 2019, 2:09 pmYeah that's about it, but the text was practical as well. They handcut the text as well and placed it in front of the smoke. This is some smart marketing, as besides a teaser filled with nostalgia in look and sound, they follow up by implying practical effects are real important.SpaceBallz wrote: ↑January 18th, 2019, 12:24 pm Duuuude, they did that with practical effects?!

Only thing I'm a little negative/nitpicky on is that I kinda feel the process was a bit pointless to do that way as digital would be just as good for a text or two. Seems a waste of time, but eh what do I know. It is good for marketing.
Furthermore, ATC also did a lot of practical effects overlaid with (stylised )cgi, which people seemed to dislike (I loved it), but I'm curious how they will update the ghosts (and hope again they go with the more scary GB1 style ghosts.
By the way, that's me preferring GB1 over GB2 twice now, but I still love that movie as well for the most part!
