“It will haunt you every night. Whatever it is, no one should have to encounter that kind of evil — except you girls. I think you can handle it.” That’s MADtv alum and Spy cast member Michael McDonald setting the tenor in the second Ghostbusters trailer from Sony.
In this version, Slimer has more of a presence with Melissa McCarthy arguing with him, and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man makes an appearance toward the end (Sony is staying mum, but come on, that’s the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man). In addition, there’s more Chris Hemsworth as the girls’ male assistant. Much like his inseam stole the laughs in Warner Bros.’ Vacation last summer, I’m hearing his ghost-possessed beefcake is a hoot.
One thing you can’t take way from Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, which hits theaters July 15, is that the VFX look top notch, which was apparent in the clips Sony showed during their CinemaCon presentation. Village Roadshow is co-producing.
The trailer just dropped on Facebook, so check it out above.
