The first clip from the new Ghostbusters is out and at least one member of the team should have died in it. Not in an internet troll kind of way. I mean straight up dead, bled to death from shrapnel. Have a look and then I’ll explain.
The first of the two new devices that they test is the ghost chipper. Let’s forget the fact that it seems to suck in all forms of matter, not just ghost matter. Now, let’s look at what’s getting sucked in to it. I saw at least a couple of aluminium cans. They passed through the shredded, were turned into small (sharp), fragments, and then they accelerated into Melissa McCarthy’s character. At the speeds they were going, that would have been like getting hit in the face and chest with hundreds of tiny little knives. Instead, we got a joke about Mardi Gras and confetti on her chest.
Thirty years after the original film took the world by storm, Ghostbusters is back and fully rebooted for a new generation. Director Paul Feig combines all the paranormal fighting elements that made the original franchise so beloved with a cast of new characters, played by the funniest actors working today. Get ready to watch them save the world this summer!
Ghostbusters stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth, Andy Garcia, Michael K. Williams, Matt Walsh, and Neil Casey.
