The Official Ghostbusters Trailer Has Finally Landed

After months of anticipation, the official trailer for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig has finally been released!

The near three minute-long trailer has Twitter in a tizzy after the long-awaited preview hit the web.

It’s been three decades since the original Ghostbusters flick starring Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd became a cult sensation and the trailer seems to be polarising fans with the choice of an all-female cast.

The film’s director and co-writer Paul Freig, who is renowned for feminising funny with knockout blockbusters like Bridesmaids, Spy and The Heat, opted for a reboot rather than a sequel, and defended his choice of cast at an exclusive trailer launch this week.

“The first movie worked because it had four of the funniest people, and I just wanted the funniest people. These women are the funniest people," he said.

We couldn't agree more! Saturday Night Live regulars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones inject a little newness to the celebrated cast, while Hollywood heartthrob Chris Hemsworth flips the stereotype playing the girls’ receptionist.

With a hilarious all-girl cast, applauded director and Chris Hemsworth – what’s not to love? The film is set for an Australian release later this year, and we can't wait!

Check out the trailer below.
