WHO YOU GONNA CALL? We've all been eagerly awaiting the trailer for Paul Feig's girl-powered Ghostbusters remake, set to premiere on July 15, and starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. It looks like we'll have to keep waiting until March 3 for the full trailer, but for now we've got a teaser. Check out all 30 tantalizing seconds below:
The first shot shows the Manhattan skyline. Glad to know the reboot is sticking with the iconic original setting.
Then we see loads of cop cars screeching around the corner, Ecto 1 style.
Next, the reinforcements roll in, guns at the ready. Don't they know those things won't work on ghosts?
The reboot of the 1984 film stars Bridesmaids comediennes Melissa McCarthy and Kristin Wiig. Nerdy paranormal scholars Erin Gilbert (Wiig) and Abby Yates (McCarthy) write a book theorizing the existence of ghosts. When Gilbert gets a job teaching at Columbia, people start finding out about her embarrassing book and she's promptly laughed out of the academic world. Who'll have the last laugh when ghosts start taking over Manhattan? Gilbert and Yates team up with a nuclear engineer, Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), and a subway worker, Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), to stop the hostile takeover and (hopefully) save the world.
Stay tuned for the full-length trailer, set for release on March 3, 2016.
