Yesterday, director Paul Feig shared the first look at the uniforms Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones will don in his "Ghostbusters" film, and today he tweeted a peek at the team's iconic proton packs.
Filming for the female-led reboot is already underway, so this is presumably the actual movie prop and not a concept piece. Interestingly enough, despite having been created in an era filled with Apple-inspired electronics, the pack actually looks rougher, dirtier and even more dangerous than the originals.
The movie's story centers at first on McCarthy and Wiig’s characters, authors of a book claiming ghosts are in fact real that find themselves laughing stocks in the academic community. They eventually meet up with McKinnon and Jones’ characters and set out to prove the existence of ghosts — presumably by ‘busting them.
Directed by Feig and starring McCarthy, Wiig, Jones, McKinnon and Christ Hemsworth, “Ghostbusters” arrives in theaters July 22, 2016.
