Should Sony risk a Ghostbusters sequel?

26 July 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks at the franchise potential of Ghostbusters

The second week numbers are in, and it’s what most people expected (at least it’s what I predicted on last week’s podcast). After a fairly decent (but not all that great) $46 million opening weekend, Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot dropped 54% to earn $21 million in its second week. Which, in fairness to it, held up pretty well against great openings for Star Trek Beyond and Lights Out, and the animated behemoth The Secret Life of Pets (which continues to make baffling big money).

Who is to blame for the mediocre performance? Was it all the pre-release negativity from misogynistic Twitter and Reddit users? Did the over-bearing Ghostbusters defenders put off potential other movie goers? Is America not ready for an all-female horror comedy? Or are we just sick of cash-grab reboots in general?

All are valid questions, but only »
