Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS Open Fire in New Photo
Empire has released a new photo from Paul Feig's upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, and it features the four leading ladies lighting it up on stage at some sort of concert. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones juice up their proton packs and let 'em rip into the sky to take down a ghost — well, I'm assuming they're shooting at a ghost. It could be a zeppelin, or a particularly annoying bug that refuses to leave them alone.
Feig also offered some context for the image with a few quotes:
“I wanted my ladies to be badass. I wanted them to get in over their heads and fight ghosts. I like the idea of them having to enter a giant setting and take on ghosts...I like action movies. I got to play with that in Spy, and it felt very natural here. It makes it fun and very unexpected for people when they hear it’s four lady Ghostbusters...it may be quite different than what they think.”
Ghostbusters opens in theaters on July 15th. Kevin Smith offered a surprisingly nuanced reaction to the trailer, which you can hear right here if you missed it.
