Finally, we have our first peek at the upcoming all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot, and it doesn’t disappoint.
30 years on, New York is once again terrorised by an army of ghouls – who you gonna call?! Ghostbusters!
Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) are a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. A few years later, Gilbert lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia University, but her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. When ghosts invade Manhattan, Gilbert reunites with Yates, teaming up with a nuclear engineer, Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), and a subway worker, Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), to save the world from a mysterious evil and powerful demon known as Rowan (Neil Casey).
Ghostbusters is directed and written by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and starring some of the funniest women in the business, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig, while Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth is set to play the team’s ripped receptionist, Kevin. If that wasn’t enough, we can even expect a cameo from original Ghostbusters, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd!
Ghostbusters is the hit cinemas this July.
