Anybody planning on seeing the new Ghostbusters just to see how many Boston locations you can pick out?

Ghostbusters scene shot in Boston Chinatown?

Chinatown losing phone service due to slime in the switching station at Harrison and Essex.

The Ghostbusters trailer is out, and, sure, it opens with scenes of Manhattan, but we all know better, right?

Take, for example, the scene that shows one of the protagonists thrown out a window of the second floor of a Chinese restaurant that's really Kaze Shabu Shabu, also at Harrison and Essex (note the addition of a couple of Manhattan water tanks and what appears to be the New York City Municipal Building):

The trailer also shows several scenes inside the restaurant.

Look at all those panicky Langham Hotel guests fleeing down Oliver Street (thanks for IDing that, Doug):

Let's see if this movie does any better than the last major blockbuster filmed extensively in Boston

No.

Sorry for the boring, terse answer, but it's the truth.

Those are the awnings for the Langham.

75-101 Federal Street is in the background at 1:54.

I thought that was the Langham - the blue threw me off.

Third picture looks like a run of the mill day around there.

That kind of game is not worth $12 to me.

I'm not touching this mess with a 10 meter cattle prod.

unless it happens to drift into two of the largest mediums for conveying television and movies that exist right now

lol, ok, so its probably just a matter of time until you see it

E: also, this is america, ditch the meters.

You're adorable.

The point is (and try to keep up) that I'm not shelling out ADDITIONAL $ to watch something I can see that's already included in my monthly fee.

Secondly, the 'cattle prod' line is from the original Ghostbusters film.

You've failed at internet today. Please turn off your computer and go for a walk.

Your comment title is also a pretty accurate description of that trailer.
