Ready to feel nostalgic? Take a look at the new trailer for the Ghostbuster reboot!

GHOSTBUSTERS

The trailer for the July 15 release starts with a scene that echoes the 1984 original: In a library, paranormal researcher Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), particle physicist Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and eccentric nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon) — the inventor behind their tech — approach a female ghost, which answers with a torrent of ectoplasm.

Last but not least comes with Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), a subway token booth clerk who’s been part of a ghost sighting, and volunteers herself as the ideal guide to New York.

The Ghostbusters soon discover that something is amplifying psychic activity in the Big Apple, which is soon overrun with apparitions. A new twist: These ghosts can possess humans, which leads to a bit at the end of the trailer that pays homage to “The Exorcist,” in more ways than one.
