Sony Pictures has released a new Ghostbusters image, which shows the new team—played by Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones—ready to bust a ghost at a rock concert. According to Empire, the team is taking down a winged demon.
Director Paul Feig tells Empire, “I wanted my ladies to be badass,” and added, “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.”
It’s not too surprising that in the present day and with the added benefit of CGI, this new iteration is going to be more action-packed than the original, but as Feig showed with Spy last year, he has no problem handling action.
Check out the new Ghostbusters image below. The film opens July 15th, and also stars Charles Dance, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Chris Hemsworth.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Thirty years after the original film took the world by storm, Ghostbusters is back and fully rebooted for a new generation. Director Paul Feig combines all the paranormal fighting elements that made the original franchise so beloved with a cast of new characters, played by the funniest actors working today. Get ready to watch them save the world this summer!
