cant wait any longer for the trailer,
my childhood dreams have me all jacked to see it but the skeptic in me says this movie is going to be scooby doo with proton packs and about 5 minutes of screen time for the OG's outside of maybe Aykroyd, he will maybe get 20.
Hope im wrong but this thing has potential to be bluesbrothers 2000 all over again
No way this is going to be Scooby Doo or Goosebumps or Blues Brothers 2000. Jason Reitman is a gifted storyteller, he knows character writing, he has great focus on how to do stories. Most of his stuff is incredible, he's a far better moviemaker than his father to be honest, fanboy aside.
The original guys won't be main players in this one, this is not the generic sequel we expected all these years. This is something fresh and I hope people will get it. There's nothing as conservative as fans of old movie franchises, I mean, people loved The Force Awakens, which is a 1:1 remake of A New Hope, and people loved Jurassic World, which is a 1:1 remake of Jurassic Park. But what's the point of having the same over and over again?
The irony is: The reason for all these classics (Star Wars and Jurassic Park and Ghostbusters and whatever) still to be here after decades is because they were fresh and new and special back in the days. This new one has to be fresh, too so there's an actual reason for it to exist. The new guys, Wolfhard and Celeste and McKenna are the new focus and I am excited to learn their story and having the legendary characters around as a bonus is pure gold.
