I’m too excited to even type so I’ll keep it short.
The first trailer for Paul Feig’s reboot of Ghostbusters has finally been unleashed and it’s impressive in every way. See the official trailer below:
Ghostbusters follows unheralded authors Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), who have written a book positing that ghosts are real. But when Gilbert lands a teaching position at Columbia University a few years later, her book resurfaces and causes her to be laughed out of academia. After ghosts invade Manhattan for real, it’s up to Gilbert, Yates, and their team to save the world.
Not only does the trailer give us a good run down of each character and their hilarious eccentricities, but there are ghosts galore from beginning to end. SNL castmates Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones are particular stand outs, doing what they do best and doing it well. The trailer also offers a glimpse at Chris Hemsworth as Ghostbusters receptionist Kevin, and we can’t wait to see him show off his comedic chops.
Ghostbusters will be released in NZ and Australia on July 14 and in the US and UK on July 15.
