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. That wasn’t helped by the first trailer, with many saying it made the whole thing look like a complete travesty. Now though, another trailer has arrived, which certainly shows more promise, suggesting something new while having a few callbacks to the original.
This time around the people fighting the ghosts are Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. It’s been confirmed be set in a parallel universe where the events of the earlier movies never happened, although the likes Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts, will be in the film, playing different characters.
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 new trailer below.
