Ever since it began filming just a few weeks back, it feels like we’ve been getting something new on Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters everyday. We’ve gotten first looks at the new proton packs, new costumes, the new Ecto-1, and even gotten a glimpse of Meslissa McCarthy in costume on set. But now we have our first official look at the new Ghostbusters lady quartet in full costume, check it out below.
With the new Ghostbusters filming out in the open, it’s a safe bet that someone with a phone or camera would’ve caught the new ghost-busting ladies in full costume at some point. So with knowing that, director Paul Feig decided to beat the punch and reveal (via Twitter) the Ghostbusters team in full costume in front of their very own Ecto-1, which we can now call the Ecto-2.
Take a look at the first look photo below of (from left to right) Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon.
I’m sure Feig would’ve loved to reveal this new team in a bit of a different way, bigger and more flashier almost. Either way though, it’s a great first look. It really shows the diversity going on between this group, which is definitely one of the more exciting aspects of this new Ghostbusters. I’m particularly excited to see McKinnon and Jones on screen alongside former SNL cast members, I’m a huge fan of both and look forward to seeing their own flavors brought to Feig’s style of comedy. And as a whole, although I’m not a fan of McCarthy like everyone else is, I’m very much looking forward to seeing this group interact with one another, there should be some pretty fun moments.
Ghostbusters shoots into theaters on July 22nd, 2016. Being directed by Paul Feig starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth, Andy Garcia, Michael K. Williams, Cecily Strong, and Neil Casey.
