So far the new Ghostbusters movie has received a very mixed reception of praise and criticism. The first movie trailer was Ghostbustersnotoriously the most disliked YouTube has seen! We’ll just have to wait until this Friday (15th July) to find out for ourselves if this will be a huge hit or a massive flop!


In 1984 the world was given the gift of Ghostbusters with the original movie starring acting legends Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Sigourney Weaver. The Ray Parker Jr. theme tune “Who You Gonna Call?” was catchy, the acting was comical and the action was spot on. What more could you want? Well a sequel of course! While it wasn’t as big as the original, it still received high praise. Since then, it has kept a strong cult following and merchandise has always been available with that iconic logo. Now we’re getting a re-boot... An all female one at that!

She Aint Afraid Of No Ghost!

30 years since the original release, we’re getting a re-boot starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig. A fresh new look with an all woman team could be just what this franchise has been looking for. The animation will certainly be a step up from the 80’s ghouls and we can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with! It’s set to be goofy, funny and even a bit spooky (It is Ghostbusters after all)
