Patton Oswalt Praises Ghostbusters, New Action-Packed Clips Arrive
In just eight short days, Ghostbusters will hit theaters nationwide, introducing fans to these new female characters who take on all of the supernatural entities that New York City has to offer. Earlier this week, we showed you the first clip from this reboo. Today, we have two more clips, plus high praise from actor Patton Oswalt, who had the chance to see this movie early. The first clip gives us another glimpse at Chris Hemsworth's Kevin, who isn't exactly the best secretary in the world.
The scene shows Kevin answering the phone in a very casual way, quickly hanging up before telling his employers what the message was about. This scene also features the Ecto-1, which has been slightly modified without Patty's (Leslie Jones) permission. The second clip gives us a brief glimpse at the final battle in New York City, with all four Ghostbusters battling multiple ghosts at once. In related news, actor Patton Oswalt had the chance to see Ghostbusters this week, giving the comedy reboot a glowing review on Twitter, teasing a post-credits scene. It should be noted that he has absolutely no horse in his race, and is not involved with the movie at all.
"Just saw an early screening of Ghostbusters. It's fun. It's scary. It's terrific. Stay 'til after the credits."
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. This summer, they're here to save the world! The new Ghostbusters are Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Chris Hemsworth leads the supporting cast, playing the Ghostbusters' new secretary Kevin.
Original Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and Ernie Hudson have all been confirmed for cameo appearances, though we don't get to see any of them in these clips. All of these cameos are likely being saved for opening weekend, so we'll just have to wait and see these original stars when the movie opens next weekend. The supporting cast includes Andy Garcia as the mayor of New York City, Michael K. Williams as Hawkins, Matt Walsh as Rourke, Pat Kiernan as a news anchor and Neil Casey as the human villain Rowan.
Paul Feig directs Ghostbusters from a script he co-wrote with Katie Dipold, who he previously worked with on The Heat. Ghostbusters isn't facing much competition next week, going up against The Infiltrator starring Bryan Cranston, so we'll have to wait and see how this reboot fares at the box office. Until then, take a look at these new clips, along with Patton Oswalt's tweets below.

I can objectively say the post-credits scene is better than that. People will be happy. https://t.co/bu8N2zjy9W— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) July 7, 2016
