Earlier today, an international trailer for Sony's new Ghostbusters reboot debuted, with just over one month left until it hits theaters on July 15. While fans were treated to snippets of new footage, it seems that one of the original Ghostbusters stars, Dan Aykroyd has seen the finished product, along with Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson. The actor took to social media to reveal his thoughts on the movie, which you can check out below.
A week ago, Dan Aykryod also took to WhoSay to reveal that he saw a "test screening" of the movie. At that time, he praised the new version, stating it had more laughs and scares than the first two movies. He added that he'd pay to see Ghostbusters when it hits theaters on July 15. But now, it seems that the actor has seen a "completed" version of the movie. Here's what he had to say below.
"Saw completed GB movie last night with Bill and Ernie. Really happy about new team. Third act breathtaking with outstanding manifestation of final threat. Wow!"
While we don't know what the exact differences between the screening Dan Ayrkoyd attended last week, and the one he saw last night, there's likely a pretty good reason for the dual screenings. We reported last week that both the original cast and the reboot cast will all converge on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live tomorrow night, Wednesday, June 8. There will also be a sneak peek from the new movie during the episode, so be sure to stay tuned for that.
The new Ghostbusters stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, with Chris Hemsworth portraying their male secretary Kevin. Original Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and Ernie Hudson have been confirmed for cameo appearances, but it was recently revealed that they won't be featured together. Take a look at Dan Aykroyd's tweet below, and stay tuned for more on Ghostbusters.
