Dir. Paul Feig
Stars of the original1984 Ivan Reitman Ghostbusters heard teasing rumors for years of a third adventure with Dr. Peter Venkman and company. However, a reboot finally took over those plans—a reboot with a twist on the original formula. In 2016, the new Ghostbusters team will comprise itself entirely of women: Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Melissa McCarthy (“Mike and Molly”), Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”), and Leslie Jones (“Saturday Night Live”). Chris Hemsworth (Thor) costars as their executive assistant/ secretary. Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, and Dan Aykroyd have indicated cameo appearances. Look for this one as the event comedy of summer 2016. Any time that director Paul Feig (Spy) and McCarthy team up, it’s comedy gold.
