The Ghostbusters’ New Proton Pack Has Been Revealed. As we’re all know by now, there’s a remake of Ghostbusters in the neighborhood, causing all sorts of trouble. Us citizens are hoping for a benevolent, slimy green ghost, and not one of these soul-destroying, harmful ones. We’ll have to wait and see which variety either plagues our entertains us once we plop into our local theatre seats.
For now, director Paul Feig continues on his reveal-via-twitter rampage by tweeting a photograph of the new proton pack. In my eyes, it looks great. I haven’t watched Ghostbusters in a long time, but this image does two things for me: it reminds me of the original, how much and why I love it, and it makes me admire the prop-department. This thing looks awesome, mechanical in all the right ways, used, etc.
Take a look for yourself:
According to Bloody-Digusting, the plot synopsis is as follows:
[Kristen] Wiig and [Melissa] McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia.
Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.
Paul Feig tweeted a photograph of those old familiar costumes out last week. They, too, look worn and torn and familiar and bring back memories of old. Take a look. What do you think of these props? Do you prefer Feig tweeting these things out in advance, or keeping silent until release?
Ghostbusters will star Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Chris Hemsworth, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Mark Burzenski. Ghostbusters will be released on July 22, 2016.
