Ghosbusters International Trailer Appears to Hit Back at Sexists
When the new Ghostbusters movie was first announced with an all-female team of ghostbusters, a number of people voiced some very sexist opinions regarding the decision. Then, when the first trailer for the movie was revealed last week, even more people came out in opposition to the film, and a lot of them again did so because they didn't like that women were bustin' ghosts. And now, with the release of the new international trailer, it seems that the filmmakers want you to know that they've heard the complaints, and they're firing back.

In the new Russian language trailer for the movie, there is a ton of new footage. There's a scene at a concert, tons more Chris Hemsworth, and new jokes... in Russian. But the most notable new addition seems to be a scene where Hemsworth, as the ghostbusters' secretary, tries to create a new logo for them and the result is a ghost with huge breasts who's wearing makeup.

Although it's tough to figure out exactly what's going on, since it's overdubbed in Russian, it definitely looks like the female ghost logo is a clear clap back at everyone who has a problem with the film for the sole reason that it's women fighting ghosts. It's a pretty clever way to address the criticism, and hopefully the movie on the whole goes for more smart jokes like this one and less ghost vomit jokes. Check out the international trailer below.
