Ghostbusters Opens To Empty Theaters Reports have begun spreading across Twitter that the opening of the new Ghostbusters reboot has opened to empty theaters across the country. The tweets began on the opening day of the Paul Feig-directed feminist blockbuster. Twitter users posted photos and videos of empty theaters with hashtags such as #EmptyScreening and #TicketSalesGoingWell. Given that whether or not the film will be released in China, a huge film market, has yet to be decided, the success of the 80s reboot is far from certain. Given the fan reaction to the film even before it’s release, with it becoming the most disliked video of all time on YouTube, Ghostbusters toys being moved to the clearance aisle before the film was even released and the accusatory and sexist marketing that was used to promote the film, the signs for Paul Feig’s feminist flick aren’t good. It's on track for $45 million opening weekend, but for a big budget "tentpole" flick, that's actually pretty lame. Yes, that three-day is a record for director Paul Feig and star Melissa McCarthy(easily beating the $39.1M opening of their B.O. high TheHeat), however, considering what Ghostbusters cost at $144M after rebates (and before an estimated $100M-plus global P&A), a number of rival sources consider anything in the $40M range to be a mediocre start for this reboot...there’s a dark cloud whether it will even see a profit. My prediction: They'll declare "victory" over the "the haters," and say there will be a sequel someday, but (like Green Lantern) they'll quietly drop the plan and eventually announce "another film in the Ghostbusters universe," where (for example), Chris Pratt, Kevin Hart and a few other guys are working out of a GB "branch" office or something.
