Who you gonna call?
It’s going to be a few more months before the all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot is released but Sony has every intention of keeping you interested while you wait.
The “Ghostbusters” plot centres on Abby Yates (played by Melissa McCarthy) and Erin Gilbert (played by Kristen Wiig), the 2 leading ladies who, years ago, wrote a book about the existence of ghosts. Fast forward to the present, Erin, who is teaching in the prestigious Columbia University, was laughed out of academia after her book resurfaced.
As for Abby, she is working alongside Jillian Holtzman (played by Kate McKinnon). They end up joining forces with Erin and Patty (played by Leslie Jones) to save the Big Apple from the villains.
A new teaser for the upcoming film has been released and while it includes very little footage from the reboot (there are definitely no ghosts), it’s notably quite dramatic. Yup, complete with a short but epic musical score as well as the signature, “Who you gonna call?” tagline. It also ends with an announcement that the real trailer will be released on 3rd March.
“Thor” star Chris Hemsworth will be playing a receptionist named Kevin in the all-female-driven flick. Neil Casey also joined the cast as the main antagonist while Andy Garcia will play the Mayor of New York City. Matt Walsh and Michael K. Williams will play “Rourke” and “Hawkins” respectively.
UPDATE (5th March):
The first full trailer for the women-centric “Ghostbusters” has been released and it’s quite a feast for the curious. And because it’s all-female, you’d really either hate it or love it.
UPDATE (19th May, 12pm)
So the latest trailer for Sony’s all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot was released earlier today and it seems like Chris Hemsworth’s Kevin is a villain. The hilarious video clip shows the girls kicking some ghost butt, a glimpse of the big green gooey ghost from the original 1984 movie, the coming of an “apocalypse”, and more Chris Hemsworth moments!
Watch the latest trailer below:
“Ghostbusters” is set to arrive in cinemas on 15th July.
