    It's rather funny though as this one is clearly politically correct and inclusive-as-hell in its representation, yet not receiving the same hatred from the first trailers.
    The later criticisms for the 2016 one were entirely legit though, as in the quality of it as a movie.

    That is the general consensus yea, that 2016 version was an abomination and never should have been made yet the director got it in his mind to make it.
    It did have a few moments, such as Chris Helmsworth.

    I loved the new trailer! The whole thing seems like a lost episode of the 80s animated series (gunner seat was in the cartoon) but 30 years later.

    It's weird since I'm pretty sure it was always intended to do a "universe" where they'd have (something like) this sequel, along with GB16 and another alternate universe and then combine them or something. But some of the more extreme types are hating this movie for not being a sequel to the (widely hated for many reasons) GB16, even though I think GB16 probably reduced the chances of this (or any new GB for a generation) getting made...

    Someone mentioned that it had a Stranger Things vibe to it, although that may just be a poke at the actor in it.
    I imagine it has to, since Stranger Things drew on Ghostbusters and many other sources.

    Not sure about the kids thing, I hope it doesn't turn into Stranger Things #21340623, also didn't seem like a comedy (neither dark nor slapstick-queef-improv) either.

    buuuuut, that being said, it seems like it could be an interesting mystery movie and I love the hints at world building they did here. The connection to the OGB and the disapearance of ghosts for 30 years could have alot of potential. If they play it right they could actually make this into a universe that works as a platform for paranormal action and mystery.

    Probably because representation in movies is never the problem?

    Lol'd.

    It 100% is and has been the issue focused on amongst online communities for several releases. But it's a forbidden topic, so I'd suggest Google.

    It's only an issue being pushed by Hollywood and the media itself. It's never been a problem for moviegoers. They don't care as long as the movie is good.

    As has been said prior, it was never because the cast had women in it. The outrage was because the GB16 trailers (and the movie, as well) conveyed that being PC or equal opportunity or whatever you want to add to this list were the main focuses of the content creation instead of important things, like story structure, entertainment value, etc. With respect to GB16, the first trailers completely gave off the vibe that they completely focused on making sure the main cast was all female versus making a great movie that happened to have an all female main cast. While this may seem like semantics, there's an insanely large difference between the two. It was never about "we hate women as strong leads!" as we've had very popular franchises with strong female leads for decades, it was always about recognizing we were getting a subpar movie because the creator's focus was on all the wrong things. At best while giving the benefit of the doubt to the creators, GB16 was marketed to the wrong crowd, as when I was watching through the movie, all I could think was that absolutely everything was targeted at middle-aged women (not your typical Ghostbusters crowd, most likely)

    If we look at this new GB trailer, it's immediately apparent that there's an effort to stay true to the franchise prior to GB16. Sure, there's a racial/gender diverse cast in the trailer, but it's never forced into our faces nor does it appear everyone's a diversity hire because we need diversity hires for some reason. In terms of the target demo, I'd say it's old GB franchise fans as well as the younger crowd, likely in an effort to expand the viewer base and potentially new franchise opportunities. However, I cannot stress this enough that what we've been given via the trailer never once implies that there were sacrifices made to the story or the entertainment value for some superficial reason.

    “It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights — the 'right' to education, the 'right' to health care, the 'right' to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery — hay and a barn for human cattle.”

    I saw with my own eyes the narratives going around for Captain Marvel, GB2016, Black Panther...

    Sorry, but you won't erase the facts of what went down. And no, it wasn't "pushed by Hollywood and media", it was happening in forums, comment sections, rating websites etc.

    That doesn't mean none of it was legitimate concerns, obviously. But the existence of one doesn't erase the other.
