I wasn't super hyped for this movie to begin with - Ghostbusters is my favorite movie ever, but 2 is pretty forgettable. So to me, it's one of those "lightning in a bottle" deals where you can never recapture the magic.

The trailer looks pretty awful to me. Nothing looks funny, the ghost possession deal looks stupid and doesn't seem like a good fit, the Library ghost scene looks stupid, the only person of color in the movie is pretty ridiculously stereotyped, and the closest thing it reminds me of tonally is the live action Scooby Doo movies.

It might just be a bad trailer, but my interest in this is at 0 right now. The only problem is you can't mention actual criticism of the movie without being lumped in with the idiots who hate it because it has women in the main roles.
