Ever since the upcoming female-led Ghostbusters reboot was announced, it was met with open hostility. Whether it’s nostalgia for the original and the rejection of a reboot, or the outright sexism against an all-female cast, there is a significant group not excited for the upcoming film. The first trailer was one of the most disliked Youtube videos ever made after all. While some (including original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd) are telling fans to give it a shot, many are not feeling the new movie… and the writers and actors of the new film know it. So they decided to do something about the endless internet comments.
You’ve got to credit director Paul Feig – even in the midst of a fairly good-sized fan backlash about his upcoming, all-female, remake-sequel-kinda-thingy Ghostbusters, he’s still willing to share some behind-the-scenes stuff from on set. After a few pictures came out recently of principal cast members Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, and Kate McKinnon shooting a couple of scenes, Feig has now given everyone a nice and clear look at the new Ghostbuster uniforms that the gal-pal quartet will be wearing in the film. Behold the photo:

It’s happening… and it looks awfully familiar.
Intrepid fans and fortuitous passers-by are starting to post the first images of scenes from the all-new, all-female Ghostbusters reboot that’s due in theaters next year. As with many a fresh take on a classic film franchise, to say that the project has met with more-than-mild opposition so far from fans would be an understatement. The fact that these first photos are speculated to show a key scene from the original film essentially being recycled is definitely not gaining director Paul Feig any more bonus points.
When a problem comes along, you must Whip It. That is basically the WHOLE concept of the film of the same name. Drew Barrymore’s directing debut is done so with a style that is as conceptual as an ordinary movie. Nothing extraordinary. (more…)
