According to Melissa McCarthy, fans were not the only ones dissatisfied with the first Ghostbusters trailer. McCarthy recently spoke with the John, Ray and Rich Show and opened up about the backlash from the trailer. She said: “I know it’s weird that they say [in the trailer] ‘thirty years ago’, but in this movie it’s 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 thirty years later … it’s not dependent on the first one.”
McCarthy advised she raised concerns about the issue, she said: “Believe me the question was asked. I think that it’s very confusing. But then everyone said we don’t care what you think.”
The film releases on July 15th.
