Ghostbusters All-Female Reboot Debuts First Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies
ghostbusters-trailer

The first trailer for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot pays homage to the original by opening up with a scene set in a library as Kristen Wiig approaches an apparition. Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd had a similar encounter in the original 1984 film.

Don’t get it twisted though. These aren’t the ghosts from the 80s. They’re meaner, bigger and dole out nastier slime. If that wasn’t enough, these supernatural spirits have the ability to possess human form.

The clip primarily focuses on the four main leads- Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Wiig. Chris Hemsworth, who plays the ladies’ secretary, only makes a brief appearance. And not shirtless to boot :( Meanwhile, the OG Ghostbusters, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, who are all set to make cameos, don’t appear at all in the trailer.

Ghostbusters slimes its way into theaters on July 15. Check out the video below.

Who you gonna call? No disrespect to Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Melissa McCarthy, but I’d rather dial Chris Hemsworth. That deep voice of his is music to my ears. Can you imagine having phone sex with him? I’d die.

The all-female Ghostbusters reboot released stills featuring the four leading ladies and for the first time, a photo of Hemsworth. The 32-year-old plays the team’s secretary and office manager which was originally played by Annie Potts. I wonder how many words per minute he can type? Get your first peek below.

Who you gonna call? Forget the OG crew. These ladies look like serious bad-asses.

Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon are ready for action with their proton packs in their character posters. If the artwork is any indication on how killer this all-female reboot will be, consider me sold.

Check out the posters below. Ghostbusters storms into theaters on July 15, 2016.

With Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting the Golden Globes the past three years, it hardly feels like seven years since they starred in Baby Mama. But it has. The two Saturday Night Live alums reunite on the silver screen for the upcoming comedy Sisters.

They play estranged sisters who come together after being summoned by their parents. Turns out, their childhood home has been sold. While cleaning out their bedrooms, they come up with the brilliant idea to throw one last rager and invite their former classmates with the exception of Maya Rudolph.

Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, Dianne Wiest, John Cena and James Brolin round out the cast. Sisters rages into theaters on December 18, 2015. The movie is rated R for “crude sexual content.” Once you watch the full trailer, you’ll see why. Poor music box never saw it coming 😉

The Hollywood Reporter holds roundtable discussions all the time featuring celebrities talking about the industry and their experiences. Usually, they’re held when a major awards show is on the horizon. This one specifically features television comedy actresses for the publication’s Emmy coverage.

Lena Dunham (Girls), Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer), Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin), Tracee Ellis Ross (black-ish), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) open up about sexism and racism within the industry. It’s interesting to hear their thoughts and, more importantly, situations they’ve encountered blatant misogyny. It’s shocking in this day and age that it’s as prevalent as it is in Hollywood.

The full episode doesn’t premiere until Sunday, August 16, but snippets from each lady have been shared. Based on what I’ve seen, I can’t wait to watch it. These ladies are articulate, hilarious and charming. Check out a clip featuring each actress below. They’re definitely worth watching.

How exciting! Next weekend, SNL is introducing their first ever out lesbian cast member: Kate McKinnon! She will make her debut with the sexy hilarious host, Sofia Vergara on Saturday, April 7. (“Ay, Jay! It’s so exciting!”).

There has been some speculation that Kristin Wiig might be leaving SNL after this season, which would be devastating. That being said, if she’s more or less going to be her replacement, it must speak to how funny she is. I’ve got a good feeling about her and can’t wait to watch her this weekend.

To get a feel for her, watch some of her work in the two videos I’ve included below!
