On the heels of what many are considering to be a PR disaster by Sony in releasing the previous trailer for their upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, they have decided to release another one. Will this allay fan fears that the previous trailer only accelerated? That’s to be determined. It is a better trailer than the last one, which was a hot mess. I personally have never seen a stronger backlash from a trailer. Here’s the new one:
The new Ghostbusters film sees Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy as scientists Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, respectively. Gilbert is a particle physicist while Yates, Gilbert’s close friend, is an expert in the paranormal. As ghost sightings ramp up, they team with Kate McKinnon‘s Jillian Holtzmann, a nuclear engineer who winds up creating the team’s tech. Leslie Jones‘ Patty Tolan, then, is the team’s everyman character who winds up playing an important role connected to an early supernatural encounter.
It also stars Chris Hemsworth as the new secretary, Andy Garcia as the Mayor of New York City, Michael K. Williams as a character named “Hawkins,” Matt Walsh as a character named “Rourke,” and Neil Casey as the film’s villain. New York City’s NY1 news anchor Pat Kiernan is also set to appear as news anchor in the film.
The Ghostbusters movie is directed by Feig from a script he co-wrote with Katie Dippold. It will debut in theaters on July 15.
