Nearly thirty years after the release of GHOSTBUSTERS 2, the beloved franchise returns to the big screen this coming July with GHOSTBUSTERS, a reboot directed by Paul Feig and starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as the title characters. Like most remakes, or whatever you wish to call them, Feig’s modern day upgrade was hated by many before shooting even began, but now that the trailer has finally arrived, well, at least we’ve got something tangible to judge. Let’s take a look again:
Loaded with colorful ghosts – including Slimer! – and brimming with a sense of fun that can only be described as vintage GHOSTBUSTERS, the trailer is one that has me very excited to buy my ticket on July 15th. I’ve been a fan of the franchise since before I even saw the movie or watched the animated series – I was born a couple years after the film hit theaters, so my first exposure came courtesy of hand-me-down toys – and I’m beyond thrilled that kids of today will soon have a GHOSTBUSTERS film of their very own. Not to mention, it also looks like a total blast for us longtime fans of the property.
I’ve spent much of my morning watching and re-watching the trailer, on the hunt for fun little Easter eggs, and since I spotted a handful of them, I wanted to make sure you didn’t miss them. So here are five hidden treats in the GHOSTBUSTERS reboot trailer that diehard fans should get a huge kick out of!
