Late last month, director Paul Feig shared a first look at the new female Ghostbusters costumes, followed by a look at the new /ghostbusters-female-reboot-new-proton-pack-photo/Proton Packs. Today, we finally get our first look at one of the new Ghostbusters actually wearing the retrofitted uniform. And it will do nothing for those who are already against this complete reboot of the classic 80s movie franchise.
Melissa McCarthy appears in the grey and orange jumpsuit, which looks incredibly baggy, and not all that special. This is meant to give the film a DIY vibe, as the lady Ghostbusters set out to create their own uniforms and tools in hunting down and capturing ghosts. You may notice that this version of the uniform doesn't have a name tag or iconic 'no ghosts' symbol associated with the original Ghostbusters uniforms. It that blasphemy?
Sony Pictures and Paul Feig were probably hoping for a more exciting reveal of their leading ladies in their new Ghostbusters costumes. It's expected that we'll get our first official look at the team in their uniforms sometime during Comic Con this week, even though Sony is skipping out on the event, with no panels planned. Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon round out the crew, with other cast members that include Chris Hemsworth as the secretary, Andy Garcia as the Mayor of New York City, along with Michael K. Williams, Matt Walsh and Pat Kiernan. It was reported earlier today that Saturday Night Live writer Neil Casey is playing the mysterious new villain Rowan. The reboot continues to shoot in Boston and around New York City. We'll let you know as soon as something more official comes in. Until then, take a look at one of your new Ghostbusters, and try not to cry.
