Melissa McCarthy Thinks ‘Ghostbusters’ Trailer Is ‘Very Confusing’ (Audio)

“The trailer said ’30 years later’ which I didn’t quite get myself,” the actress says while clarifying new comedy is a reboot, not a sequel

The “Ghostbusters” remake trailer was recently declared the most disliked movie preview in YouTube history, and even star Melissa McCarthy agreed that the trailer was “very confusing.”

“Believe me, the question was asked,” she said during her appearance on the John Jay and Rich Show when asked whether Sony’s July 15 release is a continuation of the 1984 original. “I think it’s very confusing.”

The actress, who most recently starred in “The Boss,” stated that the trailer didn’t convey the story properly.

“It’s a reboot,” she said. “I know it’s weird that they say [in the trailer] ’30 years ago,’ but in this movie it’s like the first one didn’t happen.”

The “Spy” star then went on to explain how the story is different in this film than the one of the 1984 film.

“It’s a great story but told totally differently,” she added. “It’s the same thing of four unlikely heroes, it’s in New York city, ghosts are taking over. It’s the same classic story, but it’s not a ’30 years later.’ The trailer said ’30 years later’ which I didn’t quite get myself, it’s not dependent on the first one.”

“Ghostbusters,” directed by Paul Feig, stars Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth and McCarthy.
