Why GHOSTBUSTERS is Looking Like the Reboot We Deserve

Director Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters is one of the more controversial reboots coming our way, but with recent leaks and designs from the set starting to surface, it’s beginning to look like one of the more promising movies coming to theaters next year. Why?

Join Jessica Chobot on today’s Nerdist News to find out! She’s here to tell you what Ghostbusters is doing right — from grounded designs that set it apart from the originals while still appealing to what made those films special to amazing cast additions (we’re looking at you, Thor) to a more personal relationship with fans than most other blockbuster writer-directors are willing to offer. This movie is looking good folks, and we can only hope that the dozens of reboots, remakes, prequels, and sequels that we inevitably have coming our way can learn from the positive vibes this ghost-busting flick is projecting!
