You’ve been waiting for it, and Sony knows this. That’s why we’re seeing the Ghostbusters trailer. This isn’t a teaser. It’s not a brief glimpse of what be to come, it’s a full-fledged official trailer, and it’s even got a little Slimer in it!
Yes, it is indeed awesome. We’re still a little shaky on the all-female Ghostbusters decision, but the picture may just be entertaining enough to look past our nostalgia and franchise loyalty (purity).
Check it out below.
Paul Feig directs from a script he co-wrote with Katie Dippold.
Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Melissa McCarthy (The Heat), Kate McKinnon (Life Partners), and Saturday Night Live veteran Leslie Jones star as our new ghost hunters while Chris Hemsworth will take on a new kind of character as he mans the headquarter phones. Neil Casey (Kroll Show), Andy Garcia (The Untouchables), Cecily Strong (Saturday Night Live), and Michael Kenneth Williams (RoboCop) fill out the focal cast. Matt Walsh (The Hangover), Pat Kiernan (Iron Man 3) and Charles Dance (Alien 3) also star. Cameos will include the original film’s stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts. Oh, and Ozzy Osbourne will pop up for a little fun, as well.
Ghostbusters haunts theaters on July 15, 2016.
Synopsis: Dead criminals from all eras of New York’s underbelly past have returned to roost among the living. Pilgrims, old-timey sailors, Revolutionary War spirits, and even a couple of zoot-suited gangsters are ready to take on four formidable female busters looking to rid the city of its phantasmic filth.
