So much of the chatter surrounding Paul Feig's upcoming "Ghostbusters" sequel has been that the "Bridesmaids" director dared to ruin the legacy of the 1984 original by casting — GASP! — four human females in roles similar to the ones made famous by Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Harold Ramis, and Rick Moranis. True, most of this chatter came from misogynist Internet trolls, but still — it dampened some of the overall excitement for the film, which is set to hit theaters on July 15.
However, after viewing the first trailer for "Ghostbusters" — which now stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones — one might think that even the most obnoxious of Men's Rights Activists experienced an LOL or two, since this movie looks wonderfully irreverent and overall hilarious. Check it out:
Kate's hair! Leslie's wit! Melissa's out-of-character competent leadership! Kristen's Kid's Choice-approved ability to get slimed! Chris Hemsworth's face! SLIMER!!!
Needless to say, we at Revelist vow to take July 15, 2016 off to do nothing but watch this movie again and again and again, till we all start believing in ghosts. And in the meantime, I'm changing my Facebook sexual orientation to "Kate McKinnon's wink":
