Just hearing the piano eerily playing the iconic Ghostbusters theme is enough to give any fan shivers. Add in a quick shout-out to the original film and shots of New York City in what looks like the calm before the spirit-y storm and our blood is totally pumping. And then! The first shot of what we’ve been waiting for for months: the stars.
Ever since the all-female reboot starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones was announced and we saw the first photo of them in their ghostbusting garb, it just wasn’t enough. We wanted more. And now the first official trailer is out and it –and this is an understatement– doesn’t disappoint.
First it’s just McCarthy, Wiig and McKinnon (who, we’re calling it now, is going to steal every scene she’s in) confronting a ghost before all slime breaks loose. The streets of NYC are eventually overridden by spirits and it’s up to our friends to save the day. They’re joined by Jones, who knows the city inside and out and has the best line in the trailer (“The power of Patty compels you!”), Chris Hemsworth, of whom we get a far-too-brief glimpse, and a reincarnation of the Ecto-1 (Ecto-2.0?). It’s a wild, hilarious, kinda creepy trailer.
Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters hits theatres on July 15 and aside from all the snow and cold, it’s just one more reason for us to want summer here stat.
