We’re not sure how great the “Ghostbusters” reboot is going to be, but we are pretty damn sure that fans of the original film will be pleased to see the new cast members rocking ’em awesome Ghostbusters uniforms again.
If you thought that they were going to alter the uniforms drastically, be prepared to be proven wrong.
Director Paul Peig (of “Spy” and “Bridesmaids” fame) made sure that the reboot will stay true to the original movie by offering us a first look at the new Ghostbsters uniforms. As one may expect, the uniforms still are jumpsuits and they exude an old, gritty vibe with that iconic Ghostbusters logo.
Although the proton packs are no where to be seen, we’re sure that we’ll see them sooner or later as filming for the movie is currently underway in New York City. Principal photography also recently began in Boston, as a slew of set photos were released.
Take a look at the new uniforms below:

The upcoming female Ghostbusters movie stars Melissa McCarthy as Abby, Kristen Wiig as Erin, Kate McKinnon as Jillian, and Leslie Jones as Patty. “Thor” star Chris Hemsworth joined the cast as a receptionist called Kevin while Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, who starred in the original film, are rumoured to be making cameo appearances in the upcoming reboot as well.
UPDATE (8th July, 1pm):
Director Paul Feig revealed the souped-up but retro-looking Ecto-1 car that his all-female crew will be driving to chase spectral threats.
“#Whattheygonnadrive,” Feig tweeted, along with a photo, which looks remarkably similar to the white station wagon that Bill Murray, Dan Akyroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson drove in the 1984 original.

No plot details were announced, but what we do know is that it will take a grittier and scarier tone. It is also reportedly going to feature a villain who will be a “creepy mechanical genius”.
Based on a script written by Katie Dippold and Feig himself, the new “Ghostbusters” movie is slated to arrive in theatres on 22nd July 2016.
