New GHOSTBUSTERS Photo And A Bit More On The Film’s Villains


Our first look official at Benedict Cumberbatch all kitted out as Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange was not the only thing that EW gifted us this post-Christmas week. They have also revealed a new picture from director Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, featuring all four leads – Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones.

Additionally, they gave us some new information on the spectral badguys that the quartet will be facing off against –

Dead criminals from all eras of New York’s under­belly past have returned to roost among the living in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot. Pilgrims, old-­timey sailors, Revolutionary War spirits, and even a couple of zoot­-suited gangsters are ready to take on four formidable female busters looking to rid the city of its phantasmic filth.

Previously we were told that actor Neil Casey was going to be the film’s villain, but we still don’t know if that means he is the leader of these spectral nuisances or a more flesh and blood adversary in the vein of the original film’s Walter Peck character played by the sublimely evil William Atherton.

Ghostbusters opens July 15.
