Things just seem to keep going from bad to worse for Sony and its upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. The Paul Feig-directed film has had to contend with a major backlash from many fans from the moment it was first announced, the trailer became the most disliked in YouTube history, and rumours are swirling that Sony has a trainwreck on its hands.
Still, there are some fans looking forward to the film, and if you fall into that camp we’ve got good news for you – you won’t need to spend as much on merchandise, as tie-in products are already hitting the clearance racks and bargain bins:
