    Complete car crash of a trailer without the theme...... If theyd used it there would have been some serious hype for the movie..... Instead theres just a meh reaction

    Ecto 1 says Jul5 2020 on the side in Ghostbusters 2. Coincidence?! How has no one caught this?!

    Even if it was just this.... this is enough.Can you imagine when they show just a bit of Murray and Ackroyd though?

    I'm super late to the party, but the remix with the original music is much better, IMO. The lead-in with Venkman's line was great with the music they used but the reveal of Ecto 1 with the original Ray Parker song just cements it all together so well. Love it.

    Original is good. Remixed is a billion times better and would have ignited fans more the Australian bush fires. However i think they are planning on it, just waiting for the movie release to throw the nostalgia at us!
    Either way i will love the movie and see it, but if they fail to deliver the original music i will be damn disappointed and let me elaborate, at the time this drops so does Top Gun 2 and my god Kenny Loggins is fully confirmed!!!!!!!!!!

    Personally I think they should’ve put the song in there makes the trailer even better.

    Damn, that IS better! I thought it might be cheesy, but it works just as well as Venkman's voiceover.

    They definitely should have added Ray Parker. The original theme song can trigger everything in the 80s-90s. BUT someone on here thought the kids are not Ghostbusters yet,so it makes no sense to add it until they've earned it, so I agree with that too. It's just that my initial reaction to the original theme was like the song of my childhood in a sense.

    I think that they are gonna add the classic theme song to the movie but not for the trailer Aldo it would be awesome if they did

    oh yeah I remember when I saw Ghostbuster on the theater back in the 80s, that song was great in that time and yeah I guess the trailer with the Ray Parker jr Ghostbusters is the better one and it`s powerful.

    Actually, a little tune of the original song in the trailer is good enough.

    I had to think about this for a couple of days, and from a director's view point I can see why they haven't added the Ray Parker Jr. song yet. It's because it's too early and the kids aren't the original ghostbusters. Now when the original gang appears then it's time to bring out the Ghostbusters theme song.

    I personally agree i really like both versions, but man talk about nostalgia with the second veesion of the two. Remixed with 1980s theme song hands down makes a huge impact.

    The new trailer brought goosebumps to me the first time I saw it..... Adding the ORIGINAL song into it, well........ Lets just say there isn't a word for "OH HELL YES.... This is perfection, it fits SO INCREDIBLY WELL, lets go !!!!" The super bowl is NEXT week, but my victory dance just came out after this!

    This’ll probably be like Transformers though, and they won’t use the original theme at all. Using it as a ringtone in 4 was insulting

    Both work, but I grew up with this franchise, so I gotta side with the original theme being used

    I think the they are going to hold on that original theme until we finally get a trailer that features the original Ghostbusters. I understand why they did not use it here. "I believe everything happens for a reason." :)

    Let's put it another way: could you have a trailer for Back to the Future 4 without the original theme? You could, but you'd be missing a massive chunk of nostalgia.
