'Ghostbusters' Is The Most Disliked Movie Trailer In YouTube History

LOS ANGELES — To be fair, it's not a very good trailer.

Also to be fair, the reason behind the avalanche of thumbs-downs probably has little to do with its quality, and a lot to do with trolling.

But the fact remains: the trailer for Sony's all-female Ghostbusters reboot is the most-disliked movie trailer in YouTube history. By a lot.

Since its March 3 release, the Ghostbusters trailer has climbed to No. 23 on YouTube's "most-disliked" list with nearly 508,000 thumbs-downs, roughly one down-vote for every 56 of its 28 million views.

And the thumbs-ups are trailing badly at 204,000.

Could the Sony blockbuster comedy be in trouble? Human sacrifice? Dogs and cats living together? Mass hysteria!?

That may be overstating things, because a good chunk of that down-voting was surely goosed by trolls who are upset — or perhaps more accurately, want decent people to think they are upset to provoke outrage — over the fact that this Ghostbusters was rebooted and recast with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

Whatever the reason, Ghostbusters now has the dubious distinction of sitting between Justin Bieber's "What Do You Mean" and Meghan Trainor's "All About that Bass." In fact, just about all of the most-disliked list is music videos, including No. 1, Bieber's star-making Baby. Which is understandable.

The closest movie-related item: a Disney "sing-along" version of "Let it Go" from Frozen, No. 52 with 296,000 dislikes. Also understandable.

We know for a fact that at least one of those Ghostbusters dislikes was motivated solely by the fact that the trailer is terrible. Because it is.

Whether it reflects the film itself, we'll find out July 15.

    It looks atrocious. The clip they released recently with Hemsworth's "highlights" was quite painful to sit through.

    Nah not trolling or anything to do with the actresses this movie just seems really horribly written. The jokes are trash and the effects don't look that good at all. I also have an issue with everyone else being some type of phd background aside from the one black person who's skill is knowing the streets. The OG version everyone had a specific field of study and chemistry. That was a really horrible trailer.

    In the original I don't think Winston had a degree in anything..he was just looking for a steady paycheck remember lol

    What was Winston zedmores profession or area of expertise. Iirc he didn't have one either he was just some dude who walked in looking for a paycheck. To do that once I can look past but to repeat that with Leslie Jones that just out right stereo casting.

    Harold Ranmis talked about it on the dvd extras that he actually has a phd as well but the scene was deleted along with some other stuff.

    They speak on his profession in the video game which is the true successor to the original franchise.

    When the role was originally written for Eddie Murphy Winston had multiple degrees and a PhD. He was also the smartest out the bunch.

    When Eddie couldn't do it and Ernie got it the character lost that backstory and had his screen time reduced. They made him and everyman and he also lost a lot of his lines to Peter Venkman (Ie: "He slimed me.").

    Didn't get a PhD till the videogame. At least he still got one of the best quotes as an everyman ("I've seen 🤬 that'll turn you white.").
