New 'Ghostbusters' are Ready for Action in New Character Posters
After the great smokey green group shot of Paul Feig's 'Ghostbusters' cast was released now comes some even more amazing character posters. Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, and Melissa McCarthy have their own black and white close-ups infused with just a splash of color.
The posters were released via various outlets and also carried some character descriptions:
- Erin Gilbert (Wiig) is a particle physicist, academic firebrand, spectral warrior.
- Jillian Holtzmann (McKinnon) is a nuclear engineer, munitions expert, and proton wrangler.
- Abby Yates (McCarthy) is a paranormal researcher, supernatural scientist, and entity trapper.
- Patty Tolan (Jones) is a ghost tracker, municipal historian, and metaphysical commando
This incarnation of paranormal hunters comes 30 years after the original 1984 Ivan Reitman film that starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson became a huge pop culture hit. After many false starts with a revolving door of talent over the years, Feig was able to finally secure the greenlight for his version of the comedy-horror feature. Armed with a team of hilarious comediennes, Feig has found the right formula to usher another generation of Ghostbuster fans.
'Ghostbusters' hits theaters July 22, 2016.
