In just one month, Sony Pictures will unleash the new Ghostbusters on the world, when this all-female reboot hits theaters on July 15. Tomorrow night, the casts of both the original 1984 classic and this new adventure will converge on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live. But before that happens, we have an international trailer with new footage. This trailer gives us yet another look at the massive main villain these Ghostbusters must face, along with a slew of other specters such as a mannequin that comes to life, and the iconic Slilmer
The latest trailer arrives courtesy of Sony Pictures Japan's YouTube, which will certainly give the growing amount of "haters" surrounding this film something to complain about once again. We reported earlier this year that the first trailer that debuted in March has gone on to be the most hated trailer in YouTube history, with director Paul Feig and his cast fighting back against this onslaught of negativity. This is shaping up to be quite the controversial release, and we'll have to wait and see if these haters become more and more vocal as we get closer to the July 15 release date.
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 this latest footage. 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. We haven't heard any early box office projections for Ghostbusters quite yet, but it will be interesting to see how it will shape up to the hype (and the hate) when it hits theaters next month. In the meantime, take a look at this new international trailer below for Ghostbusters.
