Nothing Gets in the Way of the ‘Ghostbusters’ in New Official Photo
Not even a fire truck can stop the Ghostbusters.
We’ve seen plenty of on-set photos of the new Ghostbusters cast in Paul Feig’s reboot so far, and in the first official one the ladies posed in their suits and ghost-catching gear. Sure, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon look pretty badass when they stare at the camera in a “Come at me bro” pose. But in this latest photo from the film we finally get the see the women in action, and they’re looking more fearless than ever.
Entertainment Weekly exclusively debuted the photo, which features McKinnon’s Jillian Holtzmann, Jones’ Patty Tolan, Wiig’s Erin Gilbert and McCarthy’s Abby Yates passing a turned-over fire truck on the demolished streets of New York City. They may be carrying proton packs, but based on the fierce looks on their faces, ghosts need only run the other way.
Though some fans of Ivan Reitman’s original Ghostbusters have doubted the women’s ability to take over the franchise, they seem pretty confident. In an interview with EW, McCarthy said, “If this doesn’t work, we go back and lose our [right to] vote. I’m talking pre-suffragette.” If we can entrust any female comics to keep the women's right to vote, and make hilarious blockbusters starring women, it's those four.
Feig's film will also feature original cast members Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts in cameos, plus Chris Hemsworth's receptionist. Ghostbusters opens July 15, 2016.
