Personally, I wouldn't want Ghostbusters anywhere near that garbage franchise.
Oh come on, they're doing great things for the damaged self-image of bald dudes everywhere!
As a bald dude, can confirm.

Butts in seats is not an indicator of quality. The Twilight films likely had a strong attendance. :P

Tokyo Drift was alright. I felt there was heavy inspiration from Initial D or maybe Tokyo Drift took heavy inspration from Initial D. Either way i'd like to see an Americanized verson of that anime without the furious cast involved.

I know its still somewhat early, I just get the feeling that this movie will get lost in the mix with everything else that is coming out. I expect the story and content to be amazing, but there are too many movies in the can waiting to be released...I hope the marketing and advertising gets ramped up quite a bit, especially in October. Like I said, I don´t think this will be a huge blockbuster hit at the box office (I hope it does), but will do a slightly above average job that makes a profit and will keep the Ghostbusters projects in the future to keep going.

Unfortunately, F&F is up there with Ghostbusters as one of the franchise films I'm most excited for in 2021! I have tickets for a Friday show...fingers crossed I get a new trailer.

[movie trailer voiceover guy] "Jurassic World III: the dinosaurs get out again... again... again... again again.

Wait — let me try that again! *ahem*

Jurassic World III: because there were so many unanswered questions from the previous five films."

Seriously, I didn't even realize that there had already been a sequel to Jurassic World. And I say that as someone that loved the original film and the Crichton novels.

The Lost World novel was actually pretty good, I thought. But the film deviated so much from the source material, and the film suffered as a result, in my opinion.

Jurassic Park III was even worse because there was no novel to base it upon. The script was so bad, that they had to rewrite it while they were shooting the movie just to try and salvage something. It showed.

Jurassic World was an interesting idea - what if the park actually worked as intended and people came to think of seeing a T-Rex as the equivalent of seeing an elephant? But of course that isn't interesting enough on its own. You need a "bad guy" dinosaur. The idea of splicing together different types of animal DNA to create a dinosaur was actually something that was explored in the original novel and film. Scientists couldn't create an 100% clone of a dinosaur, so they had to add in frog DNA to fill in the gaps. Frogs in the wild can change their sex so that their species can procreate and survive, which is why the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, which were supposed to be all female, were able to change their sex and procreate. Jurassic World took this concepts too far. Now they were able to create a Frankenstein's monster, combining raptors with tyrannosaurus rex DNA, as well as various other carnivores.

Jurassic World II just doubled down on the DNA splicing. The only part of Jurassic World II that felt like a Jurassic Park movie was the first 5 minutes when a helicopter lands on the island in a thunderstorm and gets attacked by the T-Rex. The rest of it felt more like a Resident Evil story.

I gather that Jurassic World III is about dinosaurs living all over the globe and threatening mankind's existence. I can get behind that, as it was a concept explored in the original novel, with reports of dinosaurs showing up on the mainland. There was one scene were a small carnivore came in through a window and a mother goes into her baby's room to discover her baby being eaten by the small carnivore. Unfortunately, this idea comes on the heels of absurd film after absurd film.

Now I want a movie about zombie dinosaurs...

Shit, look likes Dino Crisis has been in about as long of a developmental hell as Duke Nukem was. But yeah kind of surprised that Capcom never sold the movie rights to Scy Fy channel. I don't think it would be given a huge budget like resident evil. Universal would more then likely sue if it gained Jurassic Park popularity.

Nope. As much as i want a spoiler trickled in, im glad were still in the dark.

As much as im a tad annoyed i havent even seen as much as a pixelated speck of an OG on set

…I kinda like that “annoyed” anticipation and wanting more. Keeps me coming back.

However, the mini puft scene gave me a good idea of the tone and settled worry on that regard.

I feel SUPER special since I spotted that unidentified crew member and posted about it here in the first place OMGWENEEDNEWTHINGSTOTALKABOUT

November can't arrive soon enough. It kills me that IDW isn't currently printing any Ghostbusters content since they were the main source of new stories over the last decade.
