It has finally arrived! The trailer to the reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise has finally arrived and I’m not going to lie, this looks like we are going to have a fun ride. It may not be the original team, but this new team may just be worthy successors if the final film shows anything like the trailer.
Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones are the new Ghostbusters in the reboot, which also stars Chris Hemsworth. To show their support of the reboot, original cast members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts all make cameo appearances in the film. The only original cast members not in the film are Harold Ramis (due to his death in 2014, which effectively ended an original third film in the series, which in turn led to this reboot) and Rick Moranis, who was vocal as to not wanting to return to something he was already involved in. And yes fans…Slimer will appear in the film.
Paul Feig directed the film with original franchise helmer Ivan Reitman serving as producer. The script was written by Feig and Katie Dippold.
Ghostbusters will be unleashed in theaters on July 15, 2016 from Sony Pictures.
