There’s been a lot of complaining in some quarters about Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters starring four women instead of four men. But like it or not, these are the new ‘busters we’re getting this summer, so let’s just be thankful they seem up to the task of saving Earth from a supernatural apocalypse. They’ve got one big vote of confidence, at least: “It will haunt you every night. Whatever it is. No one should have to encounter that kind of evil,” says a character played by Michael McDonald. “Except you girls, I think you can handle it.”
Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones play the new team, while Chris Hemsworth tags along for the ride as their receptionist Kevin. The latest Ghostbusters trailer from Sony features a whole lot of new footage, so check it out below.

That’s one hell of a lineup for a comedy, but McKinnon in particular is killing it in these trailers. She can wring more laughs out of a single raised eyebrow than some actors can out of entire performances. And as much fun as it is to watch Thor play a ditz, it looks like there’s more to him than meets the eye. Of course, that’s not saying a whole lot considering how very delightfully dim this fellow is. I tell you, that Hemsworth should quit it with the stone-faced dramas and embrace his true destiny as a comedy star.
Ghostbusters arrives July 15.
