The first trailer for Paul Feig’s relaunch of Ghostbusters has been released online.  Get your first look at this all new iteration of the team, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Thirty years after the original film took the world by storm, Ghostbusters is back and fully rebooted for a new generation.  Director Paul Feig combines all the paranormal fighting elements that made the original franchise so beloved with a cast of new characters, played by the funniest actors working today.  Get ready to watch them save the world this summer!

Ghostbusters hits theaters on July 15, 2016.


  1. I’m not one of those misogynists frightened of women. I welcomed the idea of this film and want it to be great.

    But this trailer is trying so hard to include every single thing that people liked about the original that it’s embarrassing.

  2. “Come see Ghostbusters! Same name as the original and some of the same cast but with none of the characters you’ve loved for over 30 years!”

    Pass. The sad thing is, I don’t think you’re allowed to dislike this without being called a virulent misogynist. My wife didn’t like the trailer, does that mean she hates women and has given over to the patriarchy?

  3. I love Kristen Wiig, but this looks really bad. And unfunny. Unless I hear some good advance buzz, I’ll probably pass.

    Before you brand me a misogynist, I didn’t want to see a movie with the original cast after the mediocre GHOSTBUSTERS II in 1989. I have no problem with a female-cast remake. But I want it to be good. This doesn’t look good.

  4. I really thought this sounded like a great idea (seeing Murray and co at this point would be sad), but this doesn’t look like a good movie. Very disappointed, but. I showed the trailer to my wife and she thought it looked good. So it’ll probably do great box office.

  5. Well, it’ll pass the Bechdel Test for sure, but then again so did ‘Showgirls’ and ‘Sex and the City 2’.
