While it is interesting to see a new Ghosbusters finally coming to theaters, I cannot help but feel just a little concerned with this reboot. What is there to be concerned about may you ask? While production for the film is still early, what concerns me about this reboot is the general idea behind the film. Now don't get me wrong: I have no problem with the idea of female Ghostbusters, nor do I have an issue with the actresses cast in the upcoming film. Yet what troubles me is that the general idea behind this movie comes off as (for the lack of better words) gimmicky.
For me: I need to see more on the new Ghostbusters film to make a proper judgement. It does concern me that film's main concept feels like a gimmick, but that is not to say that the cast of female Ghostbusters will not be effective. Perhaps the cast will go beyond this simple idea and become a cast that is enjoyable and does justice to the name Ghostbusters. This reboot has every chance in the world to be a great film, and though I find some of the direction questionable, I can only hope that this reboot will be a great addition to the Ghostbusters franchise.
The Ghostbusters Reboot is scheduled to hit theaters on July 22, 2016.
