Melissa McCarthy Not A Big Fan Of Ghostbusters Trailer

It turns out not only is practically all the internet not a fan of the Ghostbusters reboot trailer, but Melissa McCarthy had her doubts as well.

Melissa McCarthy, who plays Abby Yates, said she found the Ghostbusters trailer "very confusing."

"It’s a reboot not a remake,” McCarthy said on The John, Jay & Rich Show. “I know its weird that they say [in the trailer] ‘30 years ago’, but in this movie its like the first one didn’t happen. It’s a great story but it’s told totally differently. It’s four unlikely heroes, it’s in New York City, ghosts are taking over; it’s that same classic story but it’s not 30 years later ... it’s not dependent on the first one.”

McCarthy also makes it known she raised the point of the new movie having nothing to do with the original Ghostbusters, but Sony ignored her concerns.

“Believe me the question was asked,” McCarthy said. “I think that it’s very confusing. But then everyone said we don’t care what you think.”

The Ghostbusters trailer is currently the trailer with the most thumbs down on YouTube of all time: currently at 685, 715 dislikes.
