Watch: New 'Ghostbusters' Trailer Reveals Its Own Stay Puft-like Villain

Watch: New 'Ghostbusters' Trailer Reveals Its Own Stay Puft-like Villain

May 18, 2016

Another trailer for the new Ghostbusters has arrived, and outside of it seeming to imply there's a fuller title, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, it is looking more and more like a remake than a totally new entity.

In this second spot we get to see more of Slimer, Chris Hemsworth becoming possessed in a way that reminds us of the Gatekeeper/Keymaster stuff from the original, and most noteworthy of all, the towering villain Rowan looking like a straight-up refurbishing of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. 

There is a lot that looks fresh, though. And we don't just mean the change in genders for the main characters. The new trailer shows off a lot of the special effects, and there's a feeling that this version offers more and bigger spectacle than the 1984 movie. It also looks a whole lot more colorful. The ghosts may be scary or funny or a combination of both, but so far what they really seem to do is light up a room or concert hall with pretty shades of green and blue. 

Watch this second full trailer here:

Ghostbusters (Answer the Call) stars Melissa McCarty, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Chris Hemsworth, and Andy Garcia, as the Mayor of New York City, and it's co-written and directed by Paul Feig. Look for it in theaters starting July 15.
