Paul Feig’s ‘Ghostbusters’ premiered Saturday night in Hollywood to huge fanfare, with tons of fans dressed as Ghostbusters, celebrity geeks, and original cast members coming out to support the film.
My prediction is the new ‘Ghostbusters’ will land a 73% on Rotten Tomatoes, as reviews start rolling out later today. The bulk of the reviews will come in after Tuesday’s press screening. Feig’s ‘Ghostbusters’ will have tough competition at the box office with ‘Secret Life of Pets’ this week and ‘Star Trek Beyond’ next, but the film shouldn’t fail because of content and internet trolls.

‘Ghostbusters’ makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. This summer, they’re here to save the world! The film is produced by Ivan Reitman and Amy Pascal, and written by Katie Dippold & Paul Feig, based on the 1984 film “Ghostbusters,” written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis and directed by Ivan Reitman.
‘Ghostbusters’ will be released in theaters nationwide on July 15, 2016
