We’re only two months into 2016, but we’ve already seen the first trailers for most of this summer’s big blockbusters. However, one huge movie remains relatively mysterious, and that’s Sony’s high-profile new Ghostbusters film. The studio worked for years to try and get a new entry in the franchise off the ground before finally finding a solid take with Bridesmaids and Spy director Paul Feig, who opted to reboot the property with a slew of talented comedic actresses rather than attempt another sequel.
We’ve been wondering for a while now when we’ll finally get to see a trailer for this thing, and the answer arrived today in the form of a trailer announcement teaser. That’s the good news, but the bad news is the trailer isn’t coming until March 3rd, so we’ve still got a ways to go until we see Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Kristin Wiig in action as the titular Ghostbusters.
What we have seen thus far are some promising images, including a fantastic look at Chris Hemsworth as the busters’ secretary. In keeping with the gender bending of this new entry, Hemsworth fills the role previously held by the incomprable Annie Potts in the original movies, and I can’t wait to see the comedic potential Feig brings out of the Thor actor.
For now, this announcement teaser is the best we’ve got, so take a look below and continue to wait patiently until that first trailer arrives in a couple of weeks. Ghostbusters also stars Cecily Strong and opens in theaters on July 15th.
Here’s the official logline for Ghostbusters:
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!
