The first trailer for the much anticipated (and ridiculously controversial) Ghostbusters reboot is finally here. This time around, gender roles are reversed, but Paul Feig’s new film seems to have an identity of its own and plenty of humor to boot.
Here it is:
Here is the official plot synopsis, which keeps everything pretty mysterious:
Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. This summer, they’re here to save the world!
This new Ghostbusters has generated plenty of unwarranted controversy because, heaven forbid, the characters are females this time around. This does seem to be more of a reboot than the third entry of the franchise, or perhaps its a mixture of both similar to The Force Awakens. Paul Feig has built enough credibility, at least with me, so maybe this film deserves the benefit of the doubt, at least a little bit.
What do you think? The new Ghostbusters hits theaters July 15.
