Another story about the new Ghostbusters movie? Yeah, yeah…we know you’re probably getting tired of hearing about it. You have listened to the haters and you have listened to the defenders. The only thing we can do now is wait until the film is released July 15, 2016.
But before we officially enter “wait” mode, we should probably let you know how Dan Aykroyd reacted to the movie. The original Ghostbuster was treated to an early screening of the all-female reboot, and he had some pretty positive things to say about it on his Facebook page.
In fact, he claims this new version has more laughs than the original films…
“As originator of the original: Saw test screening of new movie. Apart from brilliant, genuine performances from the cast both female and male, it has more laughs and more scares than the first 2 films plus Bill Murray is in it! As one of millions of man-fans and Ray Stantz, I’m paying to see that and bringing all my friends!”
Of course, no one expected him to slam the movie. He has a cameo in the film, so it’s not like he’s going to tell everyone they shouldn’t watch it.
However, it’s a little interesting to see just how positive he was. He could have just said, “Great film. Lots of laughs. If you loved the original, you’ll love this one,” and that would have been enough. But no, he said it has more laughs and more scares.
He’s putting himself out there. Let’s hope the rest of the world agrees with him.
