The upcoming Ghostbusters reboot is one of the most divisive movies of the year. Some people loath it for a number of reasons, the first being the all-female cast. And then there is the other camp who thinks this looks like one of 2016's best offerings and finds the first trailer hilariously funny. Today, we get a new trailer from Russia. And it seems to fall in line with the first camp.
We only say that because this latest sneak peek gives Chris Hemsworth's secretary a much more substantial role. He seems to be a very important part of the team. He knows science. He can fight. And he's a graphic artist to boot. Though his redesign of the iconic Ghostbusters logo doesn't sit well with the girls.
Unfortuantly, we don't get to hear any of the jokes in this new Ghostbusters teaser. The entire thing is in Russian. But we do get to see some of the big metal concert that was teased in a previous plot spoiler story. Apparently Ozzy Osbourne has a cameo in this scene, though he's nowhere to be found in this footage. A number of angry spirits invade a hard rock festival, and it's up to these Ghost-busting ladies to save all the doomed metal heads. We even get to see Leslie Jones do a stage dive that doesn't work in her favor.
The story centers on Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), who, years ago, wrote a book that posited ghosts do in fact exist. The plot picks up with Erin acquiring a teaching position at the prestigious Columbia University, but she is laughed out of academia once word of her book surfaces. At the same time, Abby is working with a new partner, Jillian Holtzman (Kate McKinnon), just as a new slew of ghosts begin to invade New York City. Erin ends up joining forces with Abby and Jillian, along with a new partner Patty (Leslie Jones), to save the Big Apple from these ghosts.
Fans of the original can expect a few big surprises. Slimer will be back for a cameo. And there will be a new version of the Ghostbusters theme, which you can hear in this trailer. Composer Theodore Shapiro is also composing his own brand new theme. Original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman is producing alongside Dan Aykroyd. 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. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and Ernie Hudson have all been confirmed for cameo appearances. Take a look at this all-new trailer, which is tailored for Russian audiences who obviously want to see more of Chris Hemsworth than we got in the states.
