Grain of salt: It seems way too soon after that announcement to be getting this, but a few fairly trustworthy places are calling it legit:

Interesting that the teaser trailer has more horror movie atmosphere than almost anything in the first two movies.

Considering Ernie Hudson's tweet, it's probably legit.

I hope the team is not all male.

The article I read seemed to make a specific point in saying it will be about four teens, two male and two female.

As long as one of them is black, not brainy like the others, and billed last.

Hopefully it will consist of two friends and two companions.

I hate to say this since I actually kind of liked Ghostbusters (2016), but does ANY of this seem like it's supposed to be an... apology? If so then that kind of makes my skin crawl since I was not happy with the way a lot of movie fans and Ghostbusters fans behaved in regards to the 2016 reboot.

I just hope they actually do something with Winston this time around.

I get that vibe a little. And I agree, pretty much everyone's behavior around the 2016 movie was deplorable.
I also get the sense that this is largely a desperate move, like the studio just can't keep this lucrative brand inactive for a while.
Personally I think the best move would have been to make another animated TV show.

I hate what happened with the 2016 film. The misogyny is awful of course, but it was SO loud it clouded the whole movie, and suddenly the enjoyment of a movie in my favorite franchise this side of Star Wars became political. Now I can't like or hate the movie (I love it) without making an implicit statement about women's rights.

That's not to say they shouldn't have done the all-female Ghostbusters thing. The cast worked wonderfully. It's the reaction. I just wish it had a chance to stand on its own as just a fun Ghostbusters movie.

I'm really afraid something very similar is happening with Captain Marvel as well, I'm seeing a LOT of misogynistic and sexist comments on FB regarding the movie and actress Brie Larson.

So now that Illumination's The Grinch was successful at the box office, I want them to make a CG version of Halloween Is Grinch Night.

Grinch night isn't as good as the Christmas special, obviously, but it had a gag that I absolutely adore.

You know what? It doesn't matter now. I'm done with DC movies now. DC trolls on FB have spoiled things for me.
