Ghostbusters- Official Trailer
Having a gnarly apparition throwing up green ectoplasm all over Kristen Wiig’s scientist character, the first full scene of the Ghostbusters trailer, which arrived online Thursday, is full of slime and…more slime. “We went right for the slime, and not just a little slime,” director Paul Feig tells USA TODAY. “It’s called ecto-projecting.” This green-filled start was important for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot starring Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones (in theaters July 15). It pays tribute to the famous New York Public Library ghost scene from the original 1984 Ghostbusters starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. Switching from male to female Ghostbusters is a revive of the brand and gives Ghostbusters the opportunity to attract an even bigger audience.
But obviously, this Ghostbusters is entirely different. “We wanted to plant a flag early. People don’t know what this movie is,” says Feig. “It’s a whole different team. But it’s kind of fun leading off with something iconic from the original.” Feig, along with screenwriter Katie Dippold and producer Ivan Reitman (who directed the 1984 original), unveiled the trailer Wednesday to fans and media on the Sony Pictures lot. The trailer is promising and reminiscent of the iconic story yet with a updated spin and lots of good laughs. Check the method.
