Following last week's first trailer for Paul Feig's reboot of Ghostbusters, a new international trailer has surfaced with a bunch of new footage. In addition to the expected paranormal extermination from Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, we finally get some dialogue from their secretary Kevin, played by Chris Hemsworth. He has some trouble trying to come up with a new logo for the Ghostbusters involving a couple modifications to the iconic ghost we all know and love. This one is definitely better than the first trailer, in my opinion, and I'm still hoping for this to be enjoyable. Watch it!

"How would a proton pack work?" This is cool! Following the debut of the first official trailer for Paul Feig's new Ghostbusters, a new featurette has been discovered along with a new viral website. Hidden in one of the frames in the various math equations written out on the whiteboard is a web address leading to paranormalstudieslab.com. The site just contains various data and info and documents, so far all about the proton packs. The new featurette is also specifically about the proton packs and the people from MIT they brought in to design them to be as realistic as possible. The perfect compliment to that impressive first trailer, since the new proton packs are featured prominently throughout. Can't wait to see more from this.

"Someone is creating a device that amplifies paranormal activity. We might be the only ones that can stop it." Sony Pictures has debuted the first full trailer for Paul Feig's new take on Ghostbusters, starring an all-female set of Ghostbusters, and a male receptionist. Don't worry, this looks kind of awesome. No really, I'm impressed - you need to see this trailer. Ghostbusters stars Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates, and Kristen Wiig as Erin Gilbert, plus Chris Hemsworth as Kevin. They barely show anything with Hemsworth, but everyone else looks really good. It's sorta funny, it doesn't take itself too seriously, and it looks really cool - the ghosts are back. Enjoy!

"Who you gunna call?!" These teasers for trailers really suck. We have stopped posting them but are making an exception this one time just because the actual trailer won't hit until March - a few weeks away. Sony has debuted a very brief teaser trailer for Paul Feig's Ghostbusters, the upcoming reboot of the supernatural comedy franchise. This barely shows any footage and doesn't show any of the main characters or anything else - but it does have a good shot of the new logo! That's about it. This stars: Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates, and Kristen Wiig as Erin Gilbert, plus Chris Hemsworth as Kevin. We'll keep an eye out for more updates before the trailer arrives.

Who You Gonna Call?! Sony has unveiled four new teaser posters for Paul Feig's Ghostbusters, which is starting to look like it might actually be pretty damn good. The posters feature the four new Ghostbusters each with a different "weapon", including proton packs for most of them. It stars: Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates, and Kristen Wiig as Erin Gilbert. I really love the look of these posters, I'm so glad they're being bold and fully embracing the badassness of this movie, with the black background and colorful highlights they really stand out. I dig it. The goggles are a nice touch with McKinnon, but where's Wiig's weapon? Hopefully we'll see a trailer soon.

Who you gonna call?! These women! To 'bust some ghosts, and clean up the supernatural haunting your neighborhood. Yesterday, a paparazzi shot of all four Ghostbusters stars in their jumpsuits leaked to the internet. So to follow-up, director Paul Feig has tweeted out the first full image of the four new 'busters in front of the Ecto-1 (also revealed this week). Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones star as the new Ghostbusters, and we get to see all four of them in this shot. I love the look of all of them, each one is unique, and it looks like this is going to be so much fun. This is our first official look.

What are they gonna drive? A truck? A car? Nah, the Ecto-1 of course! Director Paul Feig has revealed the first two photos of the
brand new vintage Ecto-1 from new Ghostbusters movie in the works. The original Ecto-1 was a 1959 Cadillac professional chassis, this seems to be a slightly newer model, but not by much. This certainly looks like the kind of hunk of junk Melissa McCarthy's character has had in her garage since she was a kid, and they've requisitioned it to 'bust some ghosts. Feig also posted a shot of the backside of the car, which shows the classic Ecto-1 license plate clearly. I like the look of this. At least it wasn't modernized.

With Comic-Con 2015 coming up this week, it's not uncommon to find auspicious fans finishing up final touches on their costume to wear around the showfloor. There have always been Ghostbusters cosplayers at Comic-Con, but eager fans are already building the new proton pack from Paul Feig's new Ghostbusters movie - which is literally still in the middle of shooting right now. Last week Feig took to Twitter to debut a few photos, one showing the uniforms, the other showing a proton pack. Per the request of fans, he has posted more specific schematics (found via SlashFilm). It's impressive that Feig is so open with fans about these details, especially this early on in production. If you want to build your own proton pack, here you go.

It's not "who you gonna call?" this time, now it's "what you gunna wear?!" Director Paul Feig has debuted the first photo via Twitter of the Ghostbusters uniforms (but no proton packs?) for the new Ghostbusters movie, starring an all-female team of 'busters. Shooting is now underway. You can see the various nametags on the uniforms for each of the actresses starring in this: Melissa McCarthy as Abby Bergman, Kristen Wiig as Erin Gabler, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan. These new outfits certainly have an old, gritty vibe to them, and they still are jumpsuits, so that's good news at least. Beyond that, I'm waiting to see any actual footage though I've got a strangely good feeling about this movie.

This is just perfect. Director Paul Feig has revealed on Twitter early casting news for the new all-female Ghostbusters movie he's currently working on. Feig has announced that Chris Hemsworth, the God of Thunder Thor himself!, will be playing the receptionist in Ghostbusters. Our presumption is this means he's taking on the same role that Annie Potts played as Janine in the original films, which is a perfect swap of the character. Mostly because Hemsworth is becoming funnier (did you see the Vacation trailer?), and yet he's still a talented actor who can take on challenging roles like Rush and In the Heart of the Sea. And because we know Feig is great breaking down usually badass actors, like Jason Statham in Spy. See the tweet below.

Even though we've heard that Anthony & Joe Russo were being lined up for another Ghostbusters film to follow the all-female reboot from director Paul Feig, this time with Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt involved, it sounds like Sony Pictures still has their sights set on another duo to enter the paranormal comedy franchise as well. Jeff Sneider from The Wrap mentioned on his Meet the Movie Press podcast that the studio is eyeing Phil Lord & Chris Miller for a future Ghosbusters project. Whether it's the one with Tatum and Pratt or a different spin-off remains to be seen. However, the're also wanted for another gig.

Back during the height of the leak from Sony Pictures, one of the stories that surfaced was of another Ghostbusters film that would bring back an all-male cast to follow the forthcoming all-female reboot starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Channing Tatum was said to be involved and the hope was to get Chris Pratt on board too. While the latter seems to still be in flux, Deadline is reporting this companion Ghostbusters project is part of a new endeavor at Sony Pictures called Ghost Corps. and Anthony & Joe Russo, fresh off their new deal at the studio, will be directing this one.

Even though Ghostbusters 3 has been in development for years, the forthcoming revival of the classic paranormal comedy franchise is coming in the form of a reboot from The Heat director Paul Feig and the film's writer Katie Dippold. And as we already know, this time our four main characters will be female, played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. However, just because Columbia Pictures decided to go in another direction to bring back Ghostbusters, that doesn't mean we won't see another iteration, because Dan Aykroyd still has hopes to utilize his gestating ideas too.

After we heard that Melissa McCarthy was in talks for a role in Ghostbusters, it looks like director Paul Feig has found the rest of the paranormal investigators. Feig just took to Twitter with a picture of four actresses for the lead roles and not only is McCarthy confirmed to be in the film, but the rest of the crew is all "Saturday Night Live" cast members, though not all of them are the ones many were hoping for. Instead, Kristen Wiig Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones are the other three Ghostbusters. Deadline says the studio is still in talks with all the stars, but Feig seems to be sure that everything is going to work. Read on!
