by  in Movie News Comment

At long last, the first full-length trailer has arrived for “Ghostbusters,” director Paul Feig’s reboot of the beloved Sony Pictures franchise.

As you might expect, the trailer repurposes the iconic theme song as it introduces the new Ghostbusters — played by Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones — re-establishes the premise, and delivers the new origin of the Etco-1.

Opening July 15, “Ghostbusters” also stars Chris Hemsworth (who’s featured briefly in the footage), Andy Garcia, Michael K. Williams, Matt Walsh and Neil Casey, with cameos by franchise veterans Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver.
