I've always thought that the Ghostbusters reboot sounded like a great idea, and the new trailer released Thursday only confirms how amazing the movie is going to be. Despite sexist criticism about the Ghostbusters being women, the choice to cast four kick-ass female comedians in the lead ghostbusting roles already looks like the absolute right move, particularly as the trailer still finds time to focus on the beautiful Chris Hemsworth. Could it be that the new Ghostbusters movie has everything we could ever want from a blockbuster? To answer this question, I'm going to have to make GIFs of the 2016 Ghostbusters trailer. It has to be done.
With the comedic talents of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, it's no surprise that the Ghostbusters trailer is filled with awesome chemistry. The special effects look just as awesome, giving us a glimpse of the new ghosts and ghouls created especially for the iconic movie. The original movies are '80s classics, much loved, and a tough act to follow. However, the new Ghostbusters trailer doesn't disappoint. Here are the best moments from the new Ghostbusters movie in GIF form, so you can enjoy them on a loop forever and ever (especially that Chris Hemsworth one).
1. The Iconic Firehouse
2. The Classic Emblem
No one could mistake the classic Ghostbusters symbol, spray painted on a wall in the trailer.
3. The Costume Department Did Good
All throughout the trailer, the characters can be seen wearing quirky outfits, each unique to them. They look suitably retro and amazing.
4. Kristen Wiig Is The Serious One
Standing in a lecture theater, and doing an awkward finger point, Kristen Wiig's character looks serious and uptight. Just look at her suit!
5. Kate McKinnon's Goggles Are On Fleek
Just look at that wink. Maybe it's time to trade your Ray Bans in for a pair of these?
6. Melissa McCarthy Is The Mad Scientist
McCarthy has the skills, and the helmet, to pull this role off.
7. Leslie Jones Is The Exorcist
Screaming "The power of Christ compels you!," Jones slaps McCarthy round the face, causing a demon to fly out of her. Impressive.
8. The Ghost Came Out Of The Sink Hole, FYI
If there was ever a convincing argument to clean out your sink, this is it.
9. Melissa McCarthy Is Straight-Up Cray
Whatever was down the plug hole was nasty.
10. Like Really Nasty
I always thought Melissa McCarthy was capable of a full-head spin.
11. The Ecto-1 Is Back
The Ghostbusters need their classic car, of course.
12. There Are Plenty Of Ghosts To Fight
Leslie Jones looks shocked.
13. And So Much Slime
Kristen Wiig gets slimed real good, while Melissa McCarthy stands by with a camera.
14. Did I Mention The Slime?
15. And Slimer Is Back
Of course he is.
16. The Outfits Are Amazing
These four ladies are ready for anything.
17. The Friendship Is Real
The chemistry between the four leads is evident in the trailer, and is sure to produce a lot of laughs.
18. They're Ready To Kick Ass
I have total confidence in the new Ghostbusters.
19. Yas Queen
Seriously, Kate McKinnon is amaze.
20. OMG Chris Hemsworth
Opening the door like only Chris Hemsworth can. He may only be in the trailer for a moment, but I'm excited to see more of him in the movie. A lot more.
21. Who You Gonna Call?
Like I even need to ask you that.
Watch the full trailer now, and get as excited as I am about the new Ghostbusters movie. Seriously, it looks incredible.
