In today's day and age, with all sorts of old films getting rebooted and remade and getting long-overdue sequels, it was only a matter of time before Ghostbusters received a modern retelling. Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Kristen Wiig are all set to star in the film, replacing Rick Moranis, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Bill Murray (who will have a cameo in the 2016 remake). So far, we've only seen images of the cast, as well as some cool character one-sheets from a couple of months back (which I have attached below for your viewing pleasure, you're welcome) but now, our first actual look at footage from the film has arrived.
This afternoon, Sony Pictures have debuted the first trailer for their forthcoming reboot and it's incredible. The reveal sets up the premise and the tone of this new film very nicely and does a good job at introducing our new cast and setting up the Ghostbusters world once again. The reveal starts off fairly dark and ominous but, of course, the quirk and wit begins fairly quickly after and it's great. The trailer seems to capture the magic and feel of the original; it's a very fun trailer that is promising so I'm remaining optimistic about this remake. Oh, and that new teaser poster accompanying the trailer is a nice modern update of the iconic logo - nostalgia ahoy.
