The new Ghostbusters does it’s job well. 32 years after the original is plenty of time for a by-the-numbers reboot if they wanted to. At least this reboot gives us a new twist on things with the four scientists busting ghosts in NYC being women (played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones). The film has a lot of familiar elements for any Ghostbusters fan and the usually over-the-top McCarthy is very subdued which is unexpected.
The film itself drops July 15th, 2016, so expect one or two more trailers before then plus a ton of merchandise to go along with the film wouldn’t be surprising, either.
