First Photo of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters has been revealed!

Here is the first photo of the ladies in grey.. the all women team of Ghostbusters. They’re sporting their new Proton Packs, standing in front of the new Ecto-1, and ready to bust some ghosts. We have yet to see the trap, but that should be coming in short order.

Left to right are Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon. Their characters’ names are Patty Tolan, Abby Yates, Erin Gilbert and Jillian Holtzmann. Of the four of them, McKinnon’s Jillian has the most unique look.

The movie will also star Chris Hemsworth (Thor) as “Kevin,” who will be the Janine of the film. Playing the mayor of New York will be Andy Garcia (Ocean’s Eleven), Michael Kenneth Williams (The WireBoardwalk Empire), Mark Berzenski and Neil Casey.

Directed by Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks), it will release on July 22, 2016.

As for me, I’ll be reporting about this movie here on Legendarium. Ghostbusters is one of my all time favorite movies, I have a huge collection of memorabilia and I’ve probably seen the first two movies more times than I’d like to admit. I’m also a pretty big fan of The Real Ghostbusters animated series and the comics that were published by IDW.

There have been many teams that included women as Ghostbusters. I’m not against a team including women. All women, I think, is too far. I know the original films were teams of all men, but the comics and animated series Extreme Ghostbusters changed all of that, and it wasn’t a big deal. The reason I have a problem with an all woman team is because boys should have at least one character busting ghosts that they can be when playing. Sure, they can watch the original, but this is the team of today.

Here’s what makes me the most excited about the future of Ghostbusters, though: Ghost Corps. It’s a part of Sony Pictures that is tasked with making more Ghostbusters films. In fact, creating a cinematic universe, with a (shot down) rumor that Chris Pratt was to co-star in the first film out of that division. We’ll see how things move forward.

About Paul Martin

I’m a social media enthusiast and a fan of motion pictures. My movie and TV show collection is as diverse as my taste. My favorite movies include Ghostbusters, The Karate Kid (1984), The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. I also enjoy Disney magic, have a TON of comic books (I like Marvel and DC equally), and still play mostly Nintendo (Wii U is awesome). My interests and favorites go well beyond these things, but I’d have to write a novel to explain it all. My day job is as co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of ProTrainings, LLC.
