In just two weeks, Ghostbusters will invade theaters nationwide, as fans get ready to see this new group of female spirit chasers in action. Earlier this week, we showed you an insane Japanese music video where four female comedians dressed up as the Ghostbusters, now we have a featurette that breaks down some of the Ghostbusters‘ new gadgets. If that wasn’t enough, we also have a poster that features the four main characters getting ready to battle the worst New York City has to offer.
The preview, which was posted on Facebook, features director Paul Feig, who reveals that when the Ghostbusters first get started, all they have are PK meters and video cameras, but that changes quickly. Stars Melilssa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon reveal what unique devices the new Ghostbusters come up with, along with new footage of these ladies testing out this gear. We also hear from Leslie Jones, who jokes that wearing all of this equipment is how she lost so much weight.
Last week, box office pundits estimated that Ghostbusters will open with roughly $50 million in its opening weekend. While we won’t know for sure until the week of July 15, it’s worth noting that Ghostbusters is only going up against one movie, Sony Pictures Classics’ The Infiltrator, starring Bryan Cranston. Ghostbusters will face a much tougher battle in its second weekend, though, when it goes up against Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond and Warner Bros.’ Lights Out.
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. This summer, they’re here to save the world! The new Ghostbusters are Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Chris Hemsworth leads the supporting cast, playing the Ghostbusters‘ new secretary Kevin.
Original Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and Ernie Hudson have all been confirmed for cameo appearances, though we don’t get to see any of them in this latest footage. The supporting cast includes Andy Garcia as the mayor of New York City, Michael K. Williams as Hawkins, Matt Walsh as Rourke, Pat Kiernan as a news anchor and Neil Casey as the human villain Rowan. Take a look at the new preview and poster for Ghostbusters, and stay tuned for more as we get closer to the July 15 release date.
