Amid a whole lot of Internet hate, I actually found the first Ghostbusters trailer to be pretty damn good. Sure, it didn't have me rolling on the floor laughing, but it was no worse than any other comedy trailer pumped out by Hollywood and it in no way "ruined my childhood," as so many people have claimed.

That being said, it wasn't without its flaws. And heck, no-one is flawless. The awesome outcome from the imperfect trailer drop is that Sony, Paul Feig and the Ghostbusters production team took much of the criticism in their stride. Better yet, they used it to improve upon their work and put out an even better trailer the second time around.

A Brief Rewording

Clearly Sony saw that people were upset over the title card reading "four scientists" in the first trailer, since Ernie Hudson's character Winston Zeddemore portrayed the "everyman." In this new trailer the statement was amended to instead read "four friends."

Meet The New Team

Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Kristen Wiig will be answering the call as the new Ghostbusters.

And Their New Receptionist

And he's speaking in his Aussie accent! I'm excited to see him flex his comedic acting chops.

Kristen Wiig's face is anyone who comes into close proximity to Chris Hemsworth.

An Open Portal

It's not quite the Sedgewick, but leave it to the Ghostbusters to find trouble in a hotel.

Slimer!

Appearing in front of a hotdog stand, of course.

Director Paul Feig actually called upon MIT's resident particle physicist James Maxwell and his team to bring some serious science into building these new proton packs.

But if they do, there's definitely a very slim chance they'll survive.

Take That, Ghost!

Melissa McCarthy is straight up punching a ghost!

I'm putting money on the idea right now that Chris Hemsworth will turn out to be a bad guy.

New Monsters

Nothing says "rock concert" quite like a mysterious demon ghost making an appearance.

More Leslie Jones!

"I don't know if its a race thing or a lady thing, but I'm mad as hell!" Pretty much Paul Feig directly calling out the haters giving Leslie Jones so much flak in the past week.

Time Travel?

We see the posters change from Twinkies and Blu-rays to Taxi Driver and Boris Karloff's Isle Of The Snake People. It looks like we might be going back to the 1970s.

Brilliant. I think Hemsworth's Photoshop skills are really coming in handy.

Who knows? Maybe I am, as I'm sure some would suggest, taking crazy pills. But there's still a few months left before Ghosbusters makes its way to theaters and I'm going to ride this one out in the hopes that it will still be a good time.

'Ghostbusters' will be released on July 15
