'Ghostbusters' trailer: The popular franchise gets an all-women reboot

The first trailer just unleashed has given fans a first real look at the new Ghostbusters - starring Bridesmaids stars Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig with Saturday Night Live comics Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

"Ghostbusters" comes out July 15 in the USA and United Kingdom, with an Australia opening date yet to be announced.

The Ghostbusters are Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) and Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones). And yes, that familiar theme... Everything from proton packs to ghost traps to the Ecto-1 is getting an upgrade in the 2016 version, keeping the spirit of the original movies: a scientific foundation anchoring a wild imagination. Otherwise, there are also plenty of differences. We don't get to see too much and what is on display is mostly Ghostbusters boilerplate: sliming, slapping, screaming, etc. The funniest moments come from the quiet, improve-y lines. More of an effort to be goofy and gross and all around just funnier (a problem?).

When ghosts take over your town, who ya gonna call? Most people are thrilled they're going to make the movie and so they should be. This is all about the ladies - who, speaking of which, director Paul Feig says all make him "cry with laughter".

"Then again, I think sometimes the people complaining are 28 nerds in their parents' basements".

The new Ghostbusters reboot trailer has finally landed but not everyone is happy.

The first two Ghostbusters films were released on Amazon Prime Video at the beginning of the month, and hopefully, they will be available for free until the new Ghostbusters movie premieres this summer.
