Just the confirmed credits card at the end makes me feel like we're in good hands. :)

Unused theme song demo surfaces. It's horrible, but kinda catchy. Very 80s.

That’s hideous! Interesting that it plays on the "who can you call" vibe though, that was obviously in the brief for the song. They should update and record this for real and use it for some cringe moment in the new movie!

That would be cool and not beyond the realms of possibility.

Looks fantastic. Chills! The little details are incredible. Glad they didn't reveal too much.

Neat to watch. Very heartfelt and insightful. Love the amount of energy. Jason gets it!

It looks...okay, but still feels like a very good SNL parody of 10's-studio franchise-resurrection titles that go all out with all the sacred icons, and callbacks, and iconic piano-plinky themes, and even bringing back Old Dan Aykroyd as the official Old Harrison Ford, but having no basic conceptual CLUE about the appeal of why the original movie was made: Look, there's cute lil' Stay-Puft Men, because...well, they're just there, isn't that enough??
Or, to quote one YouTube commenter, like it was made by somebody who thought the Ghostbusters were who the Stranger Things kids dressed up as, period. :lol:
(In this case, thought it was made by somebody who was so busy trying to gloss over the lack of Bill Murray, he thought the plot was the big selling point of the original movie. Which would be Old Dan Aykroyd.)

And that said, now I actually DO want to see a very good SNL parody of how big studios, trying to go Big, Humorless, Desperately Icon-Referencing and Reverent to stroke fans' cultural memories, would do a big, earnest, solemnly reverent reboot of Back to the Future, with "sacred" cameo by Old Michael J. Fox.
Or wait, no, a big, solemnly uber-reverent version of Ferris Bueller, with a young picked-on delinquent kid in a new school rebelling from bullying, going out into the street on his own, and finding the lost reclusive apartment of...Old Matthew Broderick.

Bill Murray is in this film, apparently.

Wouldn’t Fox now be Doc in a BTTF reboot…? ;)

You can’t just have your characters announce how they feel! That makes me feel angry!

A look at some toy figures. (Spoilery) That's one debunk... although I thought it was common knowledge.
