HOLLYWOOD, CA—Sony Pictures has released a trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, a new Ghostbusters movie that follows the story of the original two. Response to the trailer has been cautious after the disastrous previous attempt to reboot the franchise in 2016. Sony Pictures vows this movie will be different, though, primarily because they're not letting any women act in it.
"We're not exactly sure why the 2016 reboot failed," said Sony Pictures spokesman Jeffrey Floyd, "but they did switch the cast to all women in that one. So, just to be safe, we're not having any women at all in this one. All of the crew members also had to be men. No women were anywhere near this one."
