It would be a huge understatement to say that Paul Feig 2016 Ghostbusters restarting didn't work particularly well with franchise fans for a long time. Virtually from the time it was first announced, the knives were already available for the female-powered supernatural blockbuster, leading to one of the most notorious trolling fishing campaigns in modern history.
Fans seem to be happy with next year Future life, presumably because the fourth installment keeps him in the family with Jason Reitman directing and his father Ivan producing, as well as the footage we've seen so far that promises a direct continuation of the events of the first two movies that appears to be strongly oriented toward the nostalgia market in an effort to definitely get them back on board.
Of course, Feig's film was not given that quarter, and the overwhelming backlash to his version of Ghostbusters It was a major factor in the poor performance of the $ 144 million project at the box office. While she got decent enough ratings from those who never considered the series as sacred, and still has a 74% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a solid 60 on Metacritic, the surrounding negativity has been attributed as the deciding factor in her failure. .
However, with the recent announcement from the Snyder Cut demonstrating that if fans campaign as long and noisy as they want, they will eventually be granted their wish, Feig decided to do a bit of trolling himself and admitted that there is a three and a half hour version from his Ghostbusters that I would be more than happy to share with the world.

It would be fun if the filmmaker actually released an extended cut of Ghostbusters that's over an hour and a half more than the theatrical edition, just to see what the reactions of the people who tried to sabotage him at every turn four years ago would be. Unfortunately, however, Feig seems to be having fun, and based on the way the film was initially treated, it would be fair to assume that we won't be seeing #ReleaseTheFeigCut trends anytime soon.
