Who ya gonna call?
Iconic words of a great movie from the 1980s.
The characters Peter Venkman, Egon Spangler, Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddmore fight the supernatural in the movie Ghostbusters.
Columbia Pictures rebooted the franchise and it features Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig.
Erin Gilbert (Wiig) and Abby Yates (McCarthy) are a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. A few years later, Gilbert lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia University, but her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. When ghosts invade Manhattan, Gilbert reunites with Yates, teaming up with a nuclear engineer, Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), and a subway worker, Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), to save the world from a mysterious evil and powerful demon known as Rowan (Neil Casey) who can exercise control over human forms.
The trailer is out and the fans are anticipating it being a successful movie. But then there's the critics.
The critics are so brutal towards the movie. I've read some of the most offensive comments aimed at McCarthy and Wiig for ruining the franchise.
So far over 6 million people viewed the trailer and they voted it down. Over 100,000 people voted down on the trailer. It seems like the "originalists" are most brutal critics.

The Ghostbusters was an extremely popular comedy/horror film that featured three paranormal scientists investigating unusual activity in New York.
The idea was created by the late Harold Ramis and Dan Akroyd. They teamed up with Ivan Reitman to create this movie success. It featured Ramis as Egon Spangler, Akroyd as Ray Stantz and Bill Murray as Peter Venkman. Other characters included Ernie Hudson as Winston Zeddmore, Annie Potts as Jeanie Melnitz, Sigourney Weaver as Dana Barrett and Rick Moranis as Louis Tully.
The Ghostbusters were fired out the cannon at a New York college. They decided that their investigative work would be better done independently. They decided to open up a ghost busting business. The movie was huge success it launched The Real Ghostbusters animated series, Ghostbusters II, Slimer! and the Extreme Ghostbusters.
Dan Akroyd gave his blessing to the movie and said that he, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson and semi-retired Rick Moranis might make a cameo appearance.
The Summer is coming quicker than I've thought!
