AceShowbiz - Being a cast member of "Ghostbusters (2016)" reboot, Melissa McCarthy still tries to be objective about anything related to the movie. In the wake of the movie's trailer being named the most disliked movie trailer in YouTube history, the actress recently revealed that she also didn't like the trailer.
The 45-year-old comedian found it "very confusing" that the trailer opened with "30 years ago" to refer to the original film, while her new movie is a reboot. "It's a reboot. I know, it's weird that they said the '30 years ago' because in this movie, the first one didn't happen," she said when visiting "The Johnjay & Rich Show". "It's that great story, but told totally differently."
McCarthy said she had raised a question about it, but it's not like she had any control in the promotion. "Believe me, the question was asked. I was like, 'I think that's very confusing,' " she said, jokingly adding, "but then everyone said, 'We don't care what you think.' "
The "Ghostbusters" reboot which also stars Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth is set to hit U.S. theaters on July 15. While it's dubbed a reboot, director Paul Feig decided to pay homage to the classic movie by featuring cameos by some original stars like Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts.
