Now, director Paul Feig, spoke about what prevented the film from becoming the hit it was intended to be. Read on to see what he believes killed the Ghostbusters remake…
Chris Hemsworth was also in the Ghostbusters remake is the empty minded hot male assistant with no brain. He was hilarious in the movie. There were cameos from Bill Murry, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, but the movie still tanked in the box office.
“I think it kind of hampered us a little bit because the movie became so much of a cause. I think for some of our audience, they were like, ‘What the fuck? We don’t wanna go to a cause. We just wanna watch a fuckin’ movie.’ … It was a great regret in my life that the movie didn’t do better, ’cause I really loved it. It’s not a perfect movie. None of my movies are perfect. I liked what we were doing with it. It was only supposed to be there to entertain people.”
