Yesterday, the Internet seemed very preoccupied about the first Ghostbusters trailer for the upcoming Paul Feig movie. First trailers are often meant to give the viewer a 30,000 foot view of the movie, and hopefully give you enough context to keep you watching, but what if the funny bits of yesterday’s trailer were removed? That’s what Mike Colver did, and suddenly the movie takes on a whole new tone.

While there were plenty of funny moments in the original Ghostbusters busters, but it was more of a horror/comedy instead of a comedy/horror film. Feig films don’t have a great track record for fantastic first trailers, so I’m hoping the movie is better than the trailer let on.

What did you think of the re-edit? Does it make you want to see the movie more or less?

    That trailer would have completely blown me away. The actual trailer had me stone faced until the very last moment when I laughed for a second.

    When a supposedly comedic movie trailer looks way, way better as a semi-dark action movie trailer, I have even less hope for the actual product…

    I loved the original trailer, dark horror comedy here we come!

    I’m with Redsfreaky. The original trailer is so much better than this. Maybe it’s because I’ve turned hard feminist in the last few years or maybe its the tv relationship I’ve had with these women on SNL, but I really dug the humor of the original trailer. This remix feels forced and sloppy.

    Also, I don’t remember the original Ghost Busters as being that much of a horror film. Perhaps, I watched too much of the cartoon show.
