Sony Pictures may get slimed this weekend with the new “Ghostbusters.”
Directed by Jason Reitman, son of original director Ivan Reitman, the new “Ghostbusters” is sitting at 67% favorability on Rotten Tomatoes.
Variety is now saying “Ghostbusters” will open to $30 million. This isn’t good since the 2016 version with a mostly female cast had a $46 million opening weekend.
The new version stars Paul Rudd and some good young actors. It’s not until the end that Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts turn up. This has not been conveyed in the previews.
I have no idea what has gone wrong here. When they first showed the new movie at Cinema Con, everyone was excited. But I never heard another word about it after that.
Previews begin Thursday night.
