The First Ghostbusters Trailer Looks Absolutely Perfect

Praise Slimer. This trailer is everything

Sadie Gennis

Praise Slimer. The firstGhostbusters trailer looks as perfect as we ever could have hoped for.

There are the nostalgic nods to the past - Slimer, Ecto-1, proton pacts - but it doesn't feel like a mere rehash of the Bill Murray-Dan Aykroyd original. Director Paul Feig also seems to have included a lot more physical comedy in the reboot, which really plays to star Melissa McCarthy's strengths.

Check out the trailer below to get your first good look at Kristen Wiig as particle physicist Erin Gilbert, McCarthy as Erin's old friend Abby Yates, Kate McKinnon as quirky engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, a New York City public transit employee who joins the team to help them navigate the Big Apple.

Ghostbusters hits theaters on July 15.
