‘Ghostbusters’ Reveals First Official Look at the Ecto-2Britt Hayes |
A recent preview of the Ghostbusters LEGO set revealed not only the trusty ol’ Ecto-1, but an interesting new vehicle — the Ecto-2. We weren’t sure if the motorcycle would be making an appearance in the film, or if it was simply a fun bonus for the toy set. Sony has released a new image of the real Ecto-2 from the set of Paul Feig’s upcoming film, confirming that the new vehicle is indeed very much real.
IGN debuted the first official image of the Ecto-2 in all its badass glory:
In addition to the Ecto-2, Feig’s film also features an updated version of the Ecto-1 — well, sort of. It’s still a revamped old hearse. Fans may also recall that The Real Ghostbusters animated series had its own Ecto-2, but that vehicle was an autogyro, which was, you know, kind of silly.
We’ve been seeing a lot more from Feig’s Ghostbusters as of late, with new photos, toy previews and more dropping online left and right, with the trailer expected to debut any day now. The film hits theaters in just five months.
Ghostbusters stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon as the titular ghost-busting crew, with Chris Hemsworth as their receptionist and Neil Casey as the film’s primary antagonist. Original Ghostbusters Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson are set to make cameos, along with Annie Potts and Sigourney Weaver.
Ghostbusters hits theaters on July 15.
