In honor of Administrative Professionals Day, which apparently is a real thing, Sony’s released a new Ghostbusters video focusing on Chris Hemworth’s character. Hemsworth plays Kevin, a receptionist he describes as a “big, dumb puppy dog.” Hired for his looks, Kevin’s not even sure what company he works for or how to answer a phone – and he wants to be a Ghostbuster. Directed by Paul Feig, the new take on the Ghostbusters franchise stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. Ghostbusters will open in theaters on July 15, 2016.
The original Ghostbusters film starring Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, and Dan Aykroyd opened in theaters on June 8, 1984. Ghostbusters II followed in June 1989, reuniting all of the main cast as well as director Ivan Reitman. After years of attempting to get the stars to agree to Ghostbusters III, the studio went a completely different direction, rebooting the franchise with female Ghostbusters.
The Plot: Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today.
