Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters is causing mass hysteria online after Sony Pictures dropped the first trailer today. While the haters are still making themselves heard, nothing seems to be overtaking the pure love and excitement for this summer tentpole. To celebrate the release of the kick ass trailer, we’ve broken down our favourite moments:
5. The library ghost
This trailer wasted no time in showing off some eerie and cool special effects. In a nod to the original 1984 film, it shows a rather nasty library ghost throwing up as much ectoplasmic barf at Kristen Wiig’s Erin Gilbert as possible.
4. Proton power
Here it is: the new proton pack in all its glory. The trailer implies that Kate McKinnon’s Jillian Holtzmann will be the master designer behind the team’s gear, and it looks like she’s done a pretty cool job.
3. The Ghostbusters in action
Speaking of proton packs, this short but kickass scene shows the Ghostbusters in action, teasing that some epic battles are sure to ensue.
2. “The power of Patty compels you.”
SNL comedian Leslie Jones is poised to be the breakout star of Ghostbusters with her scene-stealing talents. She’s particularly hilarious here when trying to smack a ghost out of her co-worker and friend Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy).
1. Ghosts everywhere
There’s obviously some serious ghost-busting business that the crew have to face in this scene, and although we’re unsure what is going on exactly, the special effects employed by Feig and his team here are incredible.
