Ghostbusters: Paul Feig celebrates Halloween costumes on social media
To everyone celebrating Halloween dressed as a Ghostbuster, Paul Feig tips his hat. The director of this year’s reboot has been retweeting a flurry of fans posting photos of their movie-inspired creations.
“Imma retweet a bunch of awesome people wearing Ghostbusters Halloween costumes because they are awesome and it makes me happy. Behold,” Feig wrote on Saturday.
Feig rebooted the Ghostbusters film franchise with a new take starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. Throughout the marketing campaign, the cast and crew endured a seemingly endless barrage of misogyny and hateful comments online, and it all culminated in mixed critical reviews, a Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and a lackluster box office reception.
However, Feig is proud of the film for giving the world new role models for girls. “I wanted for little girls to be able to see themselves up on the screen,” he told Vulture. “The original one exists, so you can see boys doing it, but how fun for girls to have this experience.”
