Ever since it was announced that Sony was reviving the Ghostbusters franchise with a new, all-female team, there have been some grumblers out there saying it shouldn’t have been done. However, now the first proper trailer is here, which gives us our first proper look at the movie. While slightly different in tone to the original, it does look like it’ll be a lot of fun.
This time around the people fighting the ghosts are Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Previous reports have suggested that the film would be set in a parallel universe where the events of the earlier movies never happened, but the trailer suggests that’s not true, although it doesn’t full explain why the actors from the original movies, such as Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts, will be in the film but apparently playing different characters (it’s also notable that they were left out of the trailer).
Other new faces include Charles Dance, Michael Kenneth Williams and Chris Hemsworth (who’ll be the women’s hunky secretary. Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) directs, with a July release set. Take a look at the trailer below.
