I like Remake-uels too, where they sort of summarize the old one in the first part, and progress after that. Like Desperado or Evil Dead 2July 31, 2015 at 5:00 pm #48785CheifOfStuffParticipant
Jurassic world was a Sequel not a remake and it was actually pretty good. Unlike this flaming pile of crap but that what you get when have Melissa McCarthy.August 1, 2015 at 11:23 pm #48787DougParticipant
Jurassic World intentionally ignored the continuity of “The Lost World” and “Jurassic Park III.” Now they’ve announced it’s getting its own sequel, tentatively titled “Jurassic World 2.” Sounds like a reboot to me.

@Doug he didn’t say anything about a reboot, he’s talking about remakes which most people see them as two different things.
It's about "SHOW TIME" so drop by http://demonlordm.deviantart.com/August 2, 2015 at 11:12 am #48794DougParticipant
Right. I’m agreeing that Jurassic World wasn’t a remake, but it also wasn’t really a sequel. It’s more of a “reboot” than anything else.

I just came across a news story of the Ghostbusters reboot cast visiting a children hospital which is not only a cool thing to do but also seems to reveal that there will be more that one proton pack in the movie. The packs they are all wearing in the photos look quite different.
Here is the full story with more photos: http://www.ew.com/article/2015/08/01/ghostbusters-cast-boston-tufts-medical-centerAugust 2, 2015 at 6:58 pm #48827MjolnirParticipant
Love that they did that in full costume. Also thing its interesting how the barrels of the throwers are bulky. Interesting design choice.

I think that is awesome when celebrities do that kind of thing.
Seeing the throwers in more focus just drives home to me that they look like cosplay props more than anything. Maybe it’s the obvious Maglight flashlight focusing rings stuck to the end with the nonsensical copper tubing everywhere?August 4, 2015 at 4:09 am #48859
Seems like the ones they wore to the hospital were only prototype packs according to Paul Feig (and the ones from a few weeks ago are the correct ones):
It’s a little unclear if he means they were prototype movie props or prototype packs in the fiction of the movie though. It’s a little confusing.October 26, 2015 at 9:44 am #50250
This is a thing we’re still talking about, right? Kristen Wiig is “bummed out” by Reboot Backlash:

some more props have shown up and to be honest my usually optimistic self does not sure what to make of these:

Is that last thing some sort of hand-held spectral wood-chipper?
Again, all these items seem like high-quality cosplay props in photos to me, with obvious, easily identified parts from mundane sources. I kind of don’t love that, but who knows how it will come off in context on screen until we see it? I had similar criticism of the Fury Road cars looking too “art directed” from pre-movie photos like this, but they work a lot better when you see them in the context of the movie it turns out.January 14, 2016 at 3:10 pm #51300CatKeymaster
Was at a theater recently and saw the posters in person. A close up look at them revealed some really baffling photoshoppery. All the various assets of the gear were stuck together from outside sources. Each element had different resolution. None of them appear to have been actual shots of the props.
