Who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters fans, grab a chair and strap on your proton pack, because this is the news you’ve been waiting for.
The film trailer for the new blockbuster is finally here and it’s everything we hoped for and more.
It’s directed by Paul Feig and written by Katie Dippold and Feig. Flying the flag for girl power, are Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon who play the butt-kicking, ghost fighting leading ladies in the flick. We love that they’ve used an all female cast.
Erin Gilbert played by Kristen Wiig, and partner in crime, Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) play a pair of kooky authors who write a book suggesting that ghosts and ghoulies exist amongst us.
Fast forward a few years later, and Gilbert lands a cool teaching position at Columbia University, but they find her book and she is laughed out the door. So kind of like our noughties facebook posts of our really bad fashion sense, and combover fringes then.
When ghosts invade the streets of Manhatten, the old friends team up again but this time with a nuclear engineer, Jillian Holtzmann played by Kate McKinnon, and a subway worker, Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones). Can they save the world?
It’s not the first time hilarious ladies Melissa and Kristen have played the lead side by side, they also had us in stitches in one of our fave chick flicks to date ‘Bridesmaids‘, so we can’t wait for them to team up again.
The film is scheduled for release on July 15th 2016, and we’ll be booking our seats. Hurry up summer!
