First Full Trailer For New ‘Ghostbusters’ is a Good Time

After a nice nod to the original four scientists who “saved New York” 30 years ago, we finally meet the new Ghostbusters.

At last, we have footage of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones kicking ass in the jumpsuits…and ghosts doing nasty slimy things to them.

Your first thought may be, “who fits which roles from the original?” That seems easy with Abby Yates (McCarthy) filling in as Dan Aykroyd’s “Ray”, as he was considered the glue of the group. The rest seem to be their own characters though, with traits of the original Ghostbusters. Erin Gilbert (Wiig) is a physicist with Egon’s demeanor and some of Venkman’s humor. Jillian Holtzman (McKinnon) is the engineer, like Egon was, but also seems a bit quieter with a mix of Venkman’s and even Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy’s personality…meaning she’ll land some solid punchlines.

You can try to peg Patty Tolan (Jones) as Winston, but really it’s Leslie Jones being “Badass MF’n” Leslie Jones…slapping the silly out of everyone.

Also hey, Chris Hemsworth…

…who plays their secretary, Kevin. Kevin may be possessed in his scene. Also listed in the cast are Cecily Strong (Saturday Night Live), Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire, Boardwalk Empire), Andy Garcia (The Untouchables, Ocean’s 11), Matt Walsh (Veep, Upright Citizens Brigade), Elizabeth Perkins (Big), and possibly some surprise cameos from the original cast.

The new Ghostbusters, directed by Paul Feig (Spy, Bridesmaids) will be in theaters July 15th, 2016.

The ‘Revenant’ Bear at the Oscars

Even if you haven’t seen The Revenant, you likely know two things about it:

Leonardo DiCaprio’s PRETTY good in it and there’s a big badass mama bear involved.

Actually, someone was dressed as the bear in the audience and really liked Chris Rock’s performance, probably.

…and SNL’s Leslie Jones got a crack at DiCaprio as “The Bear” for a minute too. It was awesome.

A few days prior to the awards show, The Hollywood Reporter published a series of cartoons of what it would be like for ‘Revenant’ Bear at the Academy Awards. Illustrator Tim Tomkinson imagined a pretty cool world where the bear was talking hair and makeup with Chewbacca, ordering dinner at Spago, and posing for photos with this year’s Best Actor in a Leading Role.

Considering it was a relatively good night for her movie, I would have liked to see how the Bear tore up the dance floor at the Governor’s Ball after the show.
