Who you gonna call?
More than thirty years after the original film took the world by storm, Ghostbusters is back and fully rebooted for a new generation.
Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates are a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. A few years later, Gilbert lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia University, but her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. When ghosts invade Manhattan, Gilbert reunites with Yates, teaming up with a nuclear engineer, Jillian Holtzmann, and a subway worker, Patty Tolan, to save the world from a mysterious evil and powerful demon known as Rowan who can exercise control over human forms.
Ghostbusters was Sony's top-grossing film ever until Men in Black, and then all three Spider-Man films beat it out. The 1984 film grossed $292 million worldwide, and its 1989 sequel brought in another $215 million globally.
The budget for the originally film was $20 million…this time it’s $154 million.
Directed by Paul Feig and written by Katie Dippold and Feig, the film stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones as the title characters, and whilst the original cast was all male with a female receptionist, the all female cast this time have a male receptionist in the form of Chris Hemsworth.
