It honestly wasn't a horrible movie. It just wasn't a very good one. And didn't feel like it had much to do with Ghostbusters other than referencing the iconography. (Very much like TRON Legacy, for me, in that way- 'Hey, as long as we throw in a few of the iconic props/costumes in and get a few of the old actors in for a cameo, it doesn't matter that we are so philosophically, stylistically, narratively, spiritually, and conceptually unrealated to the original property that we might as well have been a new, original property.'
But it had a few good jokes (like the Youtube video transition), and a couple of legitimately funny characters (Chris Hemsworth and Leslie Jones), to me. It wasn't a complete garbage fire. (I don't remember enough about it to discuss anything about its structure or pacing; it didn't leave that much of an impression). Conceptual problems, I remember... like how the climax goes from trapping ghosts to killing ghosts. Killing. Ghosts. Think about that concept for a minute...
Anyhow, for my part, if I say this trailer is better than that entire movie, what I mean to say is that it already engages me for a positive response essentially more than the net total of moments that engaged me in the 2016 film. Which is not necessarily meant as an insult to the 2016 film- which, again, I considered mediocre, but not abysmal- but rather an elevation of how much I enjoyed this teaser and its approach.

It’s part of my secret plan to create a fifth column in the US, pre-emoting our glorious conquest and the creation of the Canadian Empire, upon which the sun will consistently set after less than eight hours of daylight.
