    Ghostbusters (Jason Reitman, Feig-free)

    Per Entertainment Weekly.

    Yep, much like the 'busters will likely pass on the positron colliders to a new generation, so has Ivan Reitman passed the directing torch to his own son, Jason Reitman. Reitman, as you know, is the director of Thank You For Smoking, Juno, Up In the Air, Young Adult, and Tully. Along with a few movies that we all collectively agreed to

    Will the 'busters suit up again? (Doubt it.)

    Will the new teenaged heroes find a role in the busters' universe? (Probably not.)

    Will I go see this out of some misconceived sense of obligation due to how much I enjoy the original film and how much I sorta guiltily like the first sequel and how much I politely tolerate the story in the video game and how much I do not actively loathe the recent remake? (Yep.)

    Take us out, Nick Cicierega.

    Literally the worst outcome possible.

    Giving up in 2020. Who cares.

    The Ghostbusters universe is big enough to hold a lot of different stories
    No, it's really not. FFS.

    The worst part about this is all the shit talk it'll generate online, mostly from insufferable redpillers and MRAs.

    I don't think it'll get the outcry from redpillers/MRAs; it looks like the studio is ignoring the last film (full of female heroes) and instead basically doing what fans wanted by placing this story in the universe of the original films and "passing the torch."

    And they'll probably be reassured due to the fact that this is not Reitman's first involvement with this film series:



    [Don't get me wrong, there will be shit-talk, but the volume will be lower.]

    No, I meant that they will interpret this as a "win." Remember that Angry Nerd Critic (or whatever his name is) who refused to review the Feig version based on principle? He will be all over this news, crowing about it.

    So will every other neckbeard asshat on YouTube.

    "See? We were right all along and the studio agrees ... blah blah blah."

    My God, just think of all the dumb memes hitting the front page of Reddit over the next 2 years. Ugh.

    Got it, and yeah, agreed.

    One wonders what the reaction will be when this movie is not good.

    Well this'll make everyone happy this time!

    The LadyGhostbusters movie had some good moments in it but was mostly a harmless bit of flopsweat. It was so okay that it didn't deserve even a tiny percentage of the energy catapulted at it from every side of the culture war.

    Guess it's kind of like a proof-of-concept teaser.

    Three left and they're all 66+.

    Maybe the LadyBusters will be capturing their ghosts.

    That last one looked pretty terrible guys. And I can't say I know anyone who actually liked it for the end result except for some that loved Mackinnon.

    Looks like a much more earthbound Ghostbusters, or at least the teaser suggests it.
