Ghost Busters are back! Sort of…

Today the trailer for the Ghost Busters reboot dropped, and it was funny.

Walking into this film a lot of people were not sure how it would turn out. Director Paul Feig gives us an all female Ghost Busters team with Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.

I will say that is though, the being of this trailer looked a lot like the trailer for the Adam Sandler’s Pixels. Which everyone though was going to be a Ghost Busters style film with video game characters. If you saw the film you know that was NOT the case. So maybe the editor for that trailer was the same for this Ghost Busters trailer. There both produced by SONY so its possible.

Now lets talk about this cast. I’m not a fan of Melissa McCarthy or her comedy film, however she was good in the Bill Murray film St. Vincent. Kristen Wiig does not make me laugh in her comedy, she’s a good dramatic actor though, but in this trailer it shows that her character is more of the strait-man to the others. Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones are the two full comedic characters. There two of the best actors on SNL and I was excited when they were cast in the film.

We also see that the weaponry has been updated, with proton handguns, and a bear trap like ghost trap. I’m excited about this cause its cool to see them have different types of proton packs. However this is not the first Ghost Buster film to show a new type of proton packs.  The very well made unlicensed Ghost Busters’ fan film called “Return of the (Denver) Ghostbusters. Watch the trailer below!

We also got a gimps of the new Slimer, which looks just like he did in the 80’s. Also we got to see Chris Hemsworth as Kevin the receptionist. He was one of the worst parts in the Vacation reboot, so I am worried about how he does in this film.

Now to the villains,  this shit gets crazy. We get all the monsters together in what I can guess a final act. We did  not get a chance to see the main badguy, but we did get a flashback to a familiar ghost. The library ghost returns in a new form in this film. She slimes Kristen Wiig.

I was pleased by this trailer as a fan of the original films, and hope that the keep some of the similar comedy styles those had and not add in bathroom humor, f-bombs, and so on.

Batman v Superman Trailer Review

Batman-vs.-Superman-Dawn-Of-Justice

The new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman film dropped yesterday. We got some incite to the film’s plot, and a few spoilers.

When the trailer opens up we see a press event taking place set up my LexCorp. Clark is there covering the event for the Daily Planet. Then Gotham’s must famous playboy millionaire Bruce Wayne shows up. We get a good look at Ben Affleck’s  Bruce. He’s older, and from the conversation with Clark about the diffrences between Superman and Batman, it looks as if Bruce knows that Clark is The Man of Steel.

We also get a reference to the Joker, you can tell when Affleck says, “Maybe its the Gotham City in me…” you can tell he’s been wanting to say that since childhood!

We then get to see Lex introduce the two hero’s in a very corny fashion. It’s like Gene Hackman’s Lex Luthor but as a young man. Although the whole hand shaking line from Lex saying how firm Clark’s was is stupid.

It’s shown that Bruce and Lex have meet in the past, most likely is business passing.

We then get another look into the Batman dream sequence with Superman, cause that’s what it is.

What I thought was interesting is that we get are first bat swear in a movie, “That Son of a Bitch.” I’m sure he must have said “damn” at some point. But throwing at an SOB, this is a more angry, bitter, Batman we are getting.

Lex then says the title of the movie again as he has Lois captured. Which short of shows that he probably knows that Clark is Superman.

Then we get the whole movie RUINED when the studio and the editor of the trailer spoil the surprise plot. We see that Lex is using Zod’s body for some experiments, now we have seen these same things in the previous trailer. What we get to see now is the reveal of DOOMSDAY! Yep, the main villain of the movie and he’s most likely going to be on screen for maybe 20mins. Why show everyone this and not wait to surprise people at the theaters?

Also we get a funny joke between Batman and Superman about Wonder Woman. “She with you?” “I thought she was with you?” ADD LAUGH HERE!

All in all, I liked the trailer. It has its fair share of funny, serious, action, and comic book homage scenes. Will this by past Nolan’s Batman Series in the box office? We shall see, all I know for sure is that nothing is going to beat Star Wars until maybe Captain America: Civil War.
