I can't wait to see if that's the kids firing at the vehicle or a ghost phasing through it. But what a nice spooky setting with that storm coming in. Maybe due to the yellow slime it's that ghost from look homeward Ray?

Is that a person sitting outside the Ecto? Or is that a camera?

That is definitely a person outside the suicide doors. I don't think it is a camera man. The black vehicle behind the Ecto is the one with the camera. I would guess it's Finn's stunt double and he is shooting at something and KABOOM! ;)

Hell Yes Demon Vice Commander! The moment they brought up Ecto and Chase that exact Image is what popped into my head! I know I have already made this statement, but I think Jason knows what he is doing. I think I am going to faint AGAIN! ;)

All I can say is OH MY GOD!!!!!!! :) :) :)

Was I the only one that didn't think the slime in GB1 was green? It was like a clear yellow.
The slimer slime is green I think. At least it looks green when he goes thru the wall after Ray tries to shoot him. None of the other slime is green.

Slimer's slime is green, right? When he goes thru the wall before the food service cart smacks into it?

You can clearly see the neutrona wand. Cool.

Man oh man I can't tell you how badly I don't want this to be Ghostbusters Jr. But the more and more I think about it the more I think that is exactly the movie we are going to get. I mean, I guess I don't care, just give me a good Ghostbusters movie. It just makes me nervous is all.

Questions: What proton beam effect would you prefer? The BOSS films Richard Edlund version from GB1? Or the Dennis Murren ILM effect from GB2?

I've always preferred the GB2 version overall. That being said, no beam shot looks better than the Marshmellow Man "Roast 'Em" shot(god that's a beautiful shot. Just beautiful) and then the finale crossing the streams shots. But some of the other work just isn't as dynamic as the ILM lasso stream/beam. They look great in the courtroom battle. Just great.

Edit: Also. That reminds me. Have we heard what VFX firm has been awarded the contract yet for GB2020? I assume Sony Imageworks will be part of it. But studios usually use multiple FX houses these days. I wonder which studio got the primary contract. Which VFX company are we hoping for? ILM? Weta? Digital domain?

On the bright side Richardless Finn and Grace are both Teenagers. 17 and 13 respectfully so I think that sets at least those 2 on higher standards than the JR Ghostbusters. The JR Ghostbusters were at the most 11 years old just shy of teenagers. Now they both could be playing younger, that is a possibility. Still I really wouldn't worry about this turning into Stranger Things or Goosebumps, I have a strong feeling that this is going to feel like Genuine Ghostbusters. What we are seeing here is just a small sample of this movie. It keeps getting more and more exciting.

As far as proton streams I love the streams from both films I really have no preference I just love proton streams. I just hope to see a lot of them. As far as effects houses I have no clue who has the contracts. I know there are a few because Jason said something about being excited because it was his first movie to have to use effects houses. He did use the plural. ;).

It has been a fun day. :) :) :)

Grace's character is doing the shooting: she has blue coverall and red shoes; Finn is driving and he wear what seems to be a green jumpsuit (seen on his stunt double too).

If you look closely in the first pic, behind Grace, there is a guy with ECTO GOGGLES!!!!!

I wonder if the kids made the modifications or if it's been made in the Ghostbusters heydays.

Damn, that would have been really cool to have on Ecto-1b if they completed that driving level in Ghostbusters: The Video Game, heh.

Blue. Hmm, well, midwest companies use blue, which was what the Chicago Ghostbusters went with in the IDW comics. Not sure about green, thought that was reserved for the military.

I'm really conflicted about this one.
I love the use of the seat swung out on the ecto for an RGB style chase and it's great to see them using what appears to be original style gear but I'm pretty dissapointed with the junior Ghostbusters angle.

Granted though, it's early days and that may just be a small part of the movie.

People seem to stuck on the Ghostbusters junior thing from the cartoon. Different writers and different characters, and meant for a much different audience.

It’s important to remember that to a lot of audiences this will be a clean slate movie, particularly to kids whose parents aren’t Ghostbusters obsessives. Wouldn’t those of us who are old enough to remember have loved the original back in the eighties if it had been a
“the-kids-are-the-heroes” Goonies style deal in the first place?
This Post Contains Spoilers


My feel is that we probably would have, and that kids coming with no previous expectation now may love that now. It’s something new for cinematic GB, anyway, and in a world where so much is rehash it could be as much something to be grateful for as something to be concerned about!

That's fair enough but personally, if thst were to happen when in one of these movies when I was a kid I wouldnt like it either
I couldn't stand the RGB episodes featuring it.
It's a trope that I've never been a fan of outside certain movies that are based solely on the premise.

Once again though that's just my opinion.
Over all the care that seems to be being taken with the movie definitely has me interested other than that specific angle.

Above all, we have to take in account that this car chase will be 3-4 minutes of the entire movie, per production crew statement.
Maybe in this scene Ray is unable to take action and the kids try to solve the problem.

The thrower loom seems to just terminate at the chair, I wonder if that means the pack is somehow mounted as a part of the chair itself, itegral to the Ecto or maybe they're planning to add a pack in post?

I don't even remember the junior GB. They dubbed the cartoon eventually, but only the first season or something. I remember it becoming Slimer and The Real Ghostbusters, but not for long before as the network stopped airing them here in the Netherlands. Sounds like I didn't miss much.

Wait. What? Ghostbusters Jr is an actual thing? From RGB? I had no idea lol. I was just using it as a way to describe what the movie might feel like. Like a Sherlock Holmes Jr or something. I don't remember Ghostbusters Jr at all. The only thing that might ring a bell is the original Grundel episode but...I don't remember kids with proton packs or anything. Interesting.

Someone mentioned above that Finn Wolfhard is 17. 17!?! That's..wow. He looks much younger. Then again, since hitting my mid to late 20's I'm finding it insanely hard to judge younger tweens and teenagers' age. They all look 13 to me. It's like..I don't remember everyone looking that young when I was 17. What happened?

God getting old sucks. It's almost mid August & seeing all these kids roaming around all summer makes me yearn for my youth when summer was a magical time of vacations, swimming, ice cream and staying up watching thunder storms with my dad while the A/C kept us cool. Plus camping? We use to roast Stay Puft Marshmallows by the fire at camp Wakanda.

Now I hate summer. Sweating, shortness of breath, hot weather.

Maybe I'll change my idea when I'll move to my new house, with a swimming pool, a garden and a barbecue.
Shortness of breath? I'd say instead of a new house you might need to see a doctor.

I will say though, thank god for central A/C. Nothing beats going from sweltering heat to a 65 degree heaven. It's one of the best feelings. It's up there with having to go pee really bad and you've been holding it forever, then that sweet eye watering relief when you finally make it to a washroom. Aaawwweeee yeah. Or a nice ice cold drink when you're parched & sooo thirsty? Mm mm.

I would say that these kids monkeying around with the found equipment will surely get the attention of the GBs, forcing them back into action simply to keep these kids from killing themselves.

Also, I'm surprised and shocked to see a built-in Proton Pack with the swing-out seat. That's pretty rad, actually. Too bad we never got to see a scenario where the originals used it.

I'm with Doc.
I think the kids were screwing around in Ray's barn and accidentally released a spook from a trap or something, then they chase after it because they don't wanna get in trouble but obviously the situation escalates.
