New ‘Ghostbusters’ Trailer Doesn’t Look As Shockingly Awful As You Might Imagine. In Fact, It Looks Okay

The trailer for “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” dropped Monday and it really doesn’t look as terrible as you might be thinking.

For millions of people around the world, it’s been hard to forgive the “Ghostbusters” franchise for trying to commit career suicide with that all-female version. Despite being a woman, and wanting to be a ghostbuster, I don’t want to watch female “Ghostbusters” and neither did anyone else, which is probably why all your favorite original cast members are back for this latest iteration.

“When the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second ice age,” the film description reads on IMDB.

Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray and a whole host of other huge names are set to star in the upcoming adventure. And let’s hope it actually is an adventure.

All too often, our favorite childhood films are rebranded into some woke trope of preachy vomit. The comedy, escapism and enjoyment is destroyed in these “updated” projects and we’re left with a bitter taste that goes all the way back to our earliest memories. I don’t know about you guys, but I feel cheated when big studios don’t bother creating original ideas and just use old ones to push weird political narratives — usually narratives no one is having in real life.

So, let us pray that all we’re going to see on March 22, 2024, when this movie hits cinemas, is a silly story that makes us laugh, gasp and not think about the real world for a freaking second … please … can we just have one day where the real world doesn’t matter?
