New trailer released for Ghostbusters reboot with title change

Ghostbusters 2

The reboot of a much loved classic will be released this summer.

It is fair to say the upcoming reboot of Ghostbusters has not received much love based on its initial trailer; in fact, the hatred has been intense.

The 1984 movie starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis was a huge commercial hit, but in an age when repeating the past is the activity of choice for Hollywood, fans should not be surprised that a new version – with an all-female main cast – is about to hit our screens.

Whatever fans think – and for the most part they have been vociferous in their disgust – this is happening and now there is a new trailer for the Melissa McCarthy vehicle.

Directed by Paul Feig, the film will be released on July 15, and yet it seems there has been a slight distancing from the original with the new trailer suggesting the film will in fact be called Ghostbusters: Answer the Call.
