Trailer:

Finn Wolfhard is really making a career out of 80s nostalgia properties.

Looks good.  I'm not a huge GHOSTBUSTERS fan, more of a casual fan, but this trailer does have me interested more than I thought I would be to see the new movie.

I like, but the trailer does leave me wondering if this film is going to be at all comedic.  This feels like a supernatural family drama (albeit one I'd like to see).

Sorry to be that guy again, but... this doesn't look fun. It doesn't feel like Ghostbusters at all.

Even having being born in the '80s I was never really into GHOSTBUSTERS and I don't get the cultish reverence it still gets. 

Too silly to be taken seriously, not funny enough to be a good comedy. And rewatching it as an adult... huge meh. THE GOONIES has the same effect on me (BACK TO THE FUTURE, INDIANA JONES, GREMLINS, ROBOCOP, on the other hand I consider timeless classics).

This trailer also seems to be taking itself too seriously.

Granted, it's only a trailer, but I think this looks fantastic... surprisingly clever, smart and reverent.

Is the original GHOSTBUSTERS an all-time classic?  Probably not.  Is it an '80s pop-culture classic?  You bet.  From someone who loves the original; has no use for Part II; and thinks the 2016 version is shockingly unfunny and not scary in the least... I'm all over this new attempt.

I'll be in line next summer.

I'm a Ghostbusters fan and I think that this looks pretty good. Making this a sequel to the original 2 films with new younger generation of Ghostbusters instead of a gender bent reboot/remake is the right way to go with this franchise. As for the seemingly lack of comedy in this film, I'm fine with this movie not be an all out comedy since my favorite Ghostbusters stories (from the excellent The Real Ghostbusters and the decent Extreme Ghostbusters animated series) were all that comedic and were quite serious and dark.

"...not funny enough to be a good comedy..."

Disagree 1000%.  I saw the original back in 1984, when I was not-quite-12, and the packed-house audience went NUTS the entire time.  Huge laughs, huge applause, huge response.  One of my all-time favorite experiences at the movies.

They got one of the kids from Stranger Things to star. I imagine they would have hired all the Stranger Things kids if they had the budget.

"I like, but the trailer does leave me wondering if this film is going to be at all comedic. "

I admit, I thought the trailer was interesting with a minimal focus on comedy.  So I had to go back and watch the trailer for the original. In my opinion, they match up pretty well in terms of what is conveyed.
