The remake of the classic comedy Ghostbusters has unleashed a new trailer with more of everything including Slimer and new ghosts. The 2016 female-driven Ghostbusters isn’t a reboot or sequel but instead is a twisted remake that flip flops genders and introduces a female team of Ghostbusters who are assisted by a clueless but hunky receptionist. (The original film’s receptionist played by Annie Potts was not depicted as dumb.) Co-written and directed by Paul Feig, the cast includes Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Charles Dance, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Chris Hemsworth. Ghostbusters opens in theaters on July 15, 2016.
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.
