Sony just released the first trailer for the all-female Ghostbusters remake has fans of the original more excited than ever.
From USA Today:
The first full scene of the Ghostbusters trailer, which arrived online Thursday, even has a gnarly apparition throwing up green ectoplasm all overKristen Wiig’s scientist character.
“We went right for the slime, and not just a little slime,” director Paul Feig tells USA TODAY. “It’s called ecto-projecting.”
This green-filled start was important for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot starring Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones (in theaters July 15). It pays tribute to the famous New York Public Library ghost scene from the original 1984 Ghostbusters starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis andErnie Hudson.
But obviously, this Ghostbusters is entirely different.
“We wanted to plant a flag early. People don’t know what this movie is,” says Feig. “It’s a whole different team. But it’s kind of fun leading off with something iconic from the original.”
Feig, along with screenwriter Katie Dippold and producer Ivan Reitman (who directed the 1984 original), unveiled the trailer Wednesday to superfans and media on theSony Pictures lot.
