While it hasn't been so blatant on the stateside release materials, the international market wants its audiences to know that there is at least one man in the new Ghostbusters reboot. And oh, what a guy! Yes, Chris Hemsworth was recruited to play new dim-bulb secretary Kevin, and when it comes to promoting the movie overseas, he's getting a lot of airtime, because, apparently, the rest of the world is just as against an all-female cast as some of the U.S.'s most vocal haters. This new international poster arrives after Ghostbusters Day warpped up its big celebration. And it finds Kevin standing with the team for the first time on any poster. Though, they don't let him suit up.
The first Ghostbusters international trailer had Chris Hemsworth as the central force, offering him plenty of space to roam free. In subsequent TV spots and teasers from around the globe, it's even hinted that Kevin is the one responsible for coming up with the whole Ghostbusters idea, though McCarthy does step into correct him, explaining the girls had this idea first. Will more Kevin before the movie opens help or hurt the release? We have no idea.
Yesterday was the official Ghostbusters Day as heralded by Sony Pictures. New footage was released in the form of a series of character vignettes. And we even got an in-depth expose on the new Ecto-1. The celebration culminated in an episode of ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. The original surviving crew of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts, who all have cameos in the reboot, united with new Ghostbusters cast Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones for a rousing discussion that included how much the 1984 team likes this redo, and what they all think about the immense hate pointed at it.
This July, 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, although we have yet to see them in any of the footage released thus far. This new Ghostbusters adventure will go up against Broad Green Pictures' The Infiltrator. Ghostbusters is produced by Ivan Reitman and Amy Pascal, and written by Katie Dippold & Paul Feig, based on the 1984 film Ghostbusters, written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis and directed by Ivan Reitman. 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.
