Make a Ghostbusters (2016) sequel!
The all-female Ghostbusters reboot was a great, fun film, that received mainly favourable reviews. Sadly these did not translate to box office success: It currently looks like the film made Sony a 25 - 50 mio loss, drastically reducing the chances of a sequel being made.
A lot of this has to do with the marketing for the film which was kind of all over the place, but also with the active campaigning against this film by angry middle-aged guys who couldn't handle "having their childhood ruined", whatever that is supposed to mean.
But there are also positive signs showing that a sequel might do much better:
-They toys accompanying the film are practically flying off the shelves
-The film is pretty high up in amazons pre-order charts
-searching facebook, tumblr or even redbubble will reveal that the film has a very active fandom, with a lot of fans showing their love for these new characters, especially Jillian Holtzmann
But Sony will need some persuading to actually greenlight a sequel for this. So here's what you can do:
-Sign this petition
-Talk positively about the film on social media
-directly contact Sony via twitter, facebook and email, and tell them you want a sequel
-maybe even send letters
-contact the cast on twitter and let them know you support them
We now also have a facebook page:
Like it, share it, and get people to sign the petition, please.
We can do this!
