Every generation has their iconic pop films. The 80s had the final two films of the Star Wars trilogy, Indiana Jones, and Ghostbusters.
As the media news sites continue to pump out information about next year’s GB flick, the original fans are beginning to take notice and take sides.
On the one hand, there’s an argument for continuing a franchise that left an undeniable impact on hundreds of millions of people and helped create iconic stars like Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd. These fans think it’s a logical and needed next-step to keep the franchise alive through another generation by rebooting it.
On the other hand, some fans are livid for even hinting at another installment without the original cast. These fans see the beauty and amazing talent it took to create such a popular and offbeat film and are fearful that the new film won’t measure up or is, quite simply, not even needed. These fans think if you want to see a good Ghostbusters film, you simply need to watch the original.
As for me, I’m definitely going to watch the new film, but when I think of Ghostbusters, the originals will always be the only films I think of.
