The New Ghostbusters are Here in First Official Picture

Take a look at the new team, suited up for 2016's film.

Director Paul Feig is bringing a whole new team of Ghostbusters to theaters in 2016. The film, starring Kristen Wigg, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones as the titular team, will bring busting ghosts to a whole new generation.

A new photo of the team popped up on the Proton Charging Facebook page, and these new Ghostbusters are fully dressed in their new outfits, complete with proton packs. Check out the image for yourselves.

I don't like the cast, but this picture looks like the right tone...but it is just a picture.

The only problem I have is that I don't find Melissa McCarthy funny, I hope she doesn't play the same role she plays in every movie she is in. Other wise I am interested on the new take on Ghostbuster (they should have done extreme ghostbusters though!)

I was thinking the same thing along the lines of her not playing the same character. I don't find her hilarious, but I've liked her in a few films. I'd like to see her as a bit more of a real person and not so over-the-top.

We've seen others, but none were official.

I'm not offended by the film like some fans seem to be, but i'm also not really interested in paying to watch it either.

Looks great. The cast is perfect for me, I just hope they give us interesting personalities like the original characters instead of making over the top zany people.

I'm pretty sure it's a continuation and not a reboot so I guess they'll be different people entirely instead of female versions of the original characters.

I feel terrible because Ghostbusters was such a big impact on my childhood in the 80's, and I really feel no way or another about this

:-|

Maybe I'll feel different once a trailer is released

@scrappydont27: i've noticed she always does the same gag in at least 2 or 3 movies... the usual trying to slide over a hood of a car but fails.

I'm calling it now, this will flop so badly it'll make the recent fantastic four blunder look like it did decent in the box office....

This looks stupid. This is ghostbusters, they would do something wrong, if it didn't, but it does look stupid. Good.

It does seem odd that they have changed the gender of ALL the main characters. I wonder why they decided to do it. What next, Sex & the City starring Jason Statham and his bffs?

Even that one where they all posed for the camera? I thought the director released that.

hmm, funny how movies like these get shit on by people who have no legit reason to hate on it when the trailer hasn't even come out, but when the movie comes out and gets rave reviews, none of those same people are there to talk any shit about it.

She is pretty one note in her films. It was funny in Bridesmaids, but now she keeps playing the same thing.

Kristen Wiig has my undying love though

C'est vraiment horrible.

Wow. This puts me in the mind of the Mario Brothers movie. And not in a good way. Trashy cinematography... and my god, what the hell are they wearing?

I'm hoping it's not gonna be one of those "pour on the fat jokes and toilet humor instead of actually being funny" kinda movies and that McCarthy gets a chance to show audiences she can be funny. Guess we'll have to wait for the trailer.

Again, this is the first official one, according to the press team that released it

@judasnixon: There is a lot of salt in this comment section. Let the movie come out and watch it; if it's good be happy they tried something different, if it's not be happy you have the original and 2 and extreme ghostbusters and the comic books etc, etc....

@chapmar: You've been on the internet before right? That literally never happens. (Also, the below statements are not reflective of you.)

Just to clarify for everyone else -

- This doesn't ruin the other films. They still exist. Some people said Extreme Ghost Busters ruined the films. Now they're lauded as something brilliant (they were)

- Just because it is an all-female cast doesn't make it pandering. I think it's a nice reversal of tropes; something I think the original cast might find fun and amusing.

- Just because they're not all Jennifer Lawrence doesn't make them bad actresses, or that this movie is going to bomb. They're representative of women as something beyond fantasies for men.

- Don't type cast actresses; McCarthy may do something entirely different in this film. We don't know what it's going to be like, because bar any of you being Ivar, or the Doctor, or Rip Hunter, nobody has seen it yet.

- Stop bellyaching over something. If you don't like it, don't watch it. Be Objective, not emotional and reactive. We're geeks because we enjoy things, but more often than not geeks tearing things apart because we got torn apart by others. Learn to enjoy different media outputs for what they are, not where they're from.
