Sony Pictures just released the official trailer of the new Ghostbusters film, and this trailer it shows the team coming together as in the original with new ghosts and technology plus more slim than you can imagine.
The Ghostbusters reboot will be released on July 15th and some of the scenes date back to the original 1984 release that stars paranormal researcher Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), particle physicist Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and eccentric nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon) — the inventor behind their tech — approach a female ghost, which answers with a torrent of ectoplasm.
Last but not least comes with Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), a subway token booth clerk who’s been part of a ghost sighting, and volunteers herself as the ideal guide to New York.
The Ghostbusters reboot will have a new twist to it this time the ghosts can posses humans.
“Ghostbusters” fans will spot the all-star cast of comediennes wearing proton packs; a new Ecto-1 Ghostbuster-mobile (still a classic car); and the Lower Manhattan locale of Ghostbusters HQ. Not to be seen, though, are any of the original cast. As director Paul Feig explained to a preview audience for the trailer on the Sony lot, this is a reboot, not a sequel. There will be no Bill Murray/Peter Venkman as Obi-wan-Ghostbuster, no hand-off from the original two films.
“I didn’t like the idea of (the new Ghostbusters) being handed technology — ‘Here’s how to do this.’ I want to see it developed,” said Feig at the Wednesday event. “We give them their own original origin story and play with that.”
