Melissa McCarthy: 'Ghostbusters' Trailer "Very Confusing"
After the trailer for the reboot was voted as one of the most disliked YouTube videos ever, McCarthy confessed that it didn't really convey the story properly.
In the wake of the Ghostbusters trailer being voted as one of the most disliked in YouTube history, one of the stars of the Sony reboot acknowledged the early promo clips were "very confusing."
As a guest on The Johnjay & Rich Show, Melissa McCarthy addressed the issues surrounding the trailer. "It's a reboot, not a remake. I know it's weird that they say [in the trailer] "30 years ago," but in this movie it's like the first one didn't happen," said the Spy star on what the new all-female interpretation of Ghostbusters really was.
She then outlined how the story was broadly the same in the reboot as the original. "It's a great story but told totally differently. It's the same thing of four unlikely heroes, it's in New York city, ghosts are taking over. It's the same classic story, but it's not a '30 years later,' " she said.
Asked if she thought it was confusing, McCarthy agreed and revealed that she had raised some questions about it. "Believe me, the question was asked. I think it's very confusing."
She added humorously: "But then everyone said, 'We don't care what you think.' "
