New Ghostbusters Image and Plot Details Emerge
Of all the great-looking science fiction movies coming out in 2016, perhaps the most mysterious is the Ghostbusters reboot. Not a ton has been revealed about the supernatural comedy, with no hint of even a teaser trailer on the horizon. But thankfully it looks like that may be changing, as Entertainment Weekly has unveiled both a new image of the team as well as some plot details about the villains.

As you can see by the photo, the new Ghostbuster team couldn't care less that a fire engine has been toppled next to them, they're too busy readying their proton packs for some bustin'. In case you forgot, the new team consists of Kristen Wiig as physicist Erin Gilbert, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, a nuclear engineer, Melissa McCarthy as paranormal researcher Abby Yates, and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, a municipal historian. So the comedic talent is there for sure, but laughs are only half of the equation when it comes to a Ghostbusters film - what about the ghosts?

No worries there, as the movie will be delving into New York City's seedy past for its spectres. According to the EW piece, the film features "Pilgrims, old-­timey sailors, Revolutionary War spirits, and even a couple of zoot­-suited gangsters."

Sounds great, now let's just hope the ladies ain't afraid of no Pilgrims.
