“If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters”; Yes my friends there is a third “Ghostbusters” film but this is not chapter three at all and instead will be a reboot of the franchise and feature an all-female cast of comedians as the spectral hunters. You can check out the first full trailer and some of the cast by scrolling down below.
Plot: Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) are a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. A few years later, Gilbert lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia University, but her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. When ghosts invade Manhattan, Gilbert reunites with Yates, teaming up with a nuclear engineer, Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), and a subway worker, Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), to save the world from a mysterious evil and powerful demon known as Rowan (Neil Casey) who can exercise control over human forms.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m going to say that I am on the fence about this one because I absolutely loved that very first and now classic “Ghostbusters” film and see no real need for a reboot. Sure give us a continuation some thirty years later but this strikes me as something that aims to wash away that which Murray, Akroyd, Ramis and Hudson gave us in the first place which is so not cool. The film will open in the middle of July and I cannot promise I will be there in the theater and instead might be waiting for it to hit HBO or home video first. Not trying to be negative of course but the summer months are often loaded with massive concert events and I need any free time to recharge my Metal batteries. You can let me know what you think of the trailer down in the comments and to spark your interest just a little more I have added the recently revealed character posters.
