On December 29, 2015 Entertainment Weekly posted the above “in movie”  photo from the upcoming Ghostbusters (2016) movie. The article that accompanied it is about the “bad guys” the new movie team will be facing.

Such as:

  • Pilgrims.

  • Old-­time sailors.

  • Revolutionary War spirits.

  • Zoot­-suited gangsters.

We hope three out of four ghosts have some kind of ectoplasmic “bullets!” Even if they don’t Ghostbusters 2016 opens in the US on July 15, 2016. For other countries release dates more information can be found at Ghostbusters 2016 IMDB.
