When the new Ghostbusters hits theaters next month, this story will be set in a whole new world where the original Ghostbusters didn't exist. That being said, there will still be plenty of nods to the original classic, including the Ecto-1 vehicle, Slimer and cameos from several of the original cast members. Today we have three new TV spots, which reveals the presence of another franchise favorite, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
The first of these new TV spots, which surfaced on YouTube, gives us a brief glimpse at the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, but his presence might not be quite the same as the original. Yesterday, new soundtrack details were released, which included a track called "Balloon Parade," where these balloons reportedly will come to life and terrorize New York City. It seems that the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man will be one of these floats-turned-ghosts that the Ghostbusters will have to take down, but we don't know for sure.
One of the other TV spots also features footage from this parade gone awry, with several different floats coming to life. Unfortunately, none of these spots give us a glimpse at any of the cameos from the original Ghostbusters stars such as Bill Murray, Dan Aykryod, Ernie Hudson or Annie Potts, but it's possible that we won't get to see any of these characters until the movie hits theaters on July 15. It has been rumored that Dan Aykryod plays a taxi driver who picks up Kristen Wiig's Erin Gilbert, while Bill Murray is reportedly playing a character trying to debunk the new Ghostbusters' claims.
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.
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. Take a look at these TV spots below, and stay tuned for more on Ghostbusters.
