Sony Pictures has released the first Ghostbusters trailer and it looks great. The new movie is a reboot, but has its roots tied to the original.

The new Ghostbusters movie has an all female cast, unlike the original, but continues the mayhem. This is the first trailer for the new movie.

“Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. This summer, they’re here to save the world!”

Directed by Paul Feig, the new Ghostbusters trailer gives us the first look at a New York infested with ghosts, the new Ghostbusters, the new Ecto-1 and the improved Proton pack. There’s a lot of reference to the old movies as well, such as the old firehouse, which was the original HQ for the Ghostbusters.
