An old but goodie returns to the silver screen with a small twist. Last week a new trailer released plays up the nostalgia of the beloved original, from the classic soundtrack all the way to lots of people get slimed. What stands out the most this go around will be the cast.
Four women—Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones—lead the new Ghostbusters, which hits theaters July 15th. The trailer serves up a taste of what we can expect from the movie’s comedic genius leads.
Even with the genders switched the director Paul Feig told audiences that while the movie plucks at nostalgia, it very much stands on its own. “I’d be bummed if I didn’t see the Ecto-1 and all that stuff,” Feig said. “So we wanted to make sure we give those nods—but make them our own, and give them their own original origin story. When you see the movie, there will be a lot of things you’re happy to see, but they’re coming at you at a slightly different way.”
