New photos & info for Paul Feig’s “Ghostbusters” reboot revealed

Paul Feig has been taking all kinds of flak for his Ghostbusters reboot, but on this site, we can’t wait to have more GB things!

The film stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon,
and Leslie Jones as the all-female Ghostbusters team, and for quite some time, we have been left in the dusty about what this movie will be about. Finally, we have some answers.

Entertainment Weekly gave us the following piece of info, which says a lot while still remaining pretty darn vague:

Dead criminals from all eras of New York’s under­belly past have returned to roost among the living in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot. Pilgrims, old-­timey sailors, Revolutionary War spirits, and even a couple of zoot­-suited gangsters are ready to take on four formidable female busters looking to rid the city of its phantasmic filth.

While this is far from a detailed plot synopsis, we at least have a slightly better idea of what viewers will be getting themselves into. Sounds like the movie will feature more realistic ghosts as opposed to the types we saw in the originals.

We also have this brand new photo of the team in action, dealing with a flipped-over fire truck. Must be a nasty poltergeist on the prowl!


The film is due in theaters on July 15. Once again, they’re coming this summer to save the world.

  1. I like the new photo, and the more I see the more excited I get for the movie, but if it’s supposed to take place primarily in New York, I’m going to be very upset, considering they filmed in Boston.

  2. I hope this movie is good. Regardless it will always be compared to original, and the all female cast will be under the microscope. I will give it a shot, cant wait to see the trailer or at least a tease.

  3. Andi –

    With the filming of the new “Ghostbusters”,as with MOST films, they often shoot in cities different from those in which they take place… a standard practice in the industry.

    Often, they will shoot exteriors in the setting-city for necessary shots, but streets in many cities across the US and Canada look much the same. And it’s an economic boost to those ‘stand in’ cities, as the production brings a lot of money into the market during filming.

    Film companies also find it cheaper to shoot in the alternate cities, as prices (away from the major metropolitan areas, such as New York) are typically cheaper across-the-board for most everything related to the production.

    And with special effects, you will NEVER know that it wasn’t shot in NYC… unless you’re from, or have been to, Boston, and recognize a certain location.

    My city of Rochester, NY was a stand-in for NYC when the shot “The Amazing Spider Man 2”. Though a Rochesterian like myself can easily pick out distinctly Rochester landmarks in the truck chase early in the film, the casual viewer never realizes that it’s not Manhattan.

    And YOU will never know the difference in the new “Ghostbusters” either.
