The sky isn’t falling! The new Ghostbusters may trade out the original quartet for four of today’s best women comic actors, but if the trailer is any indication, it’s still got the same mix of hilarity of action.
While we’ve been hearing about a new Ghostbusters for ages (along wit the debate about whether any new crew should take over for Venkman, Stanz, Spengler, and Zeddemore), it’s taken some time for a trailer to finally surface. Sony Pictures has finally released the first trailer for the upcoming reboot, due out on July 15. Check out the trailer below!
While we’ve still got likely another hour and 59 minutes of footage left to check out, this first glimpse of the comedienne quartet is pretty good. You’ve got Melissa McCarthy’s physical humor, Kate McKinnon’s eccentricity, Kristen Wiig’s dry humor, and Leslie Jones’ brash brand of comedy all on display in short order, and while some of the special effects may border on outrageous (gotta sell them 3D IMAX LOL WTF OMG TIX), at least we’ve still got Slimer looking pretty faithful to his original design.
What do you think of the trailer? Are you on board with the new girls-busters, are you waiting for a new crew of dudes, or do you wish the series had stayed in its containment unit? Sound off below!
