The new, all-female Ghostbusters is coming and it is probably going to fantastic considering the cast is awesome and Paul Feig is directing. However, we haven’t had any official looks outside of a few social media posts. Now they are coming. The other day we got the first official image and today we get four posters showing off the cast.
The posters are clearly designed to highlight the franchise’s iconic logo and ghost trapping tools, but they’ve also got a harder edge to them than one would expect for a series that will almost definitely be a comedy. They’re not capitalizing on star power yet either, with both Kirsten Wiig and Melissa McCarthy almost unrecognizable.
You do have to love the tagline.
In case you’re wondering just who these half faces are, Paul Feig recently gave a rundown.
- Erin Gilbert (Wiig): “Particle physicist, academic firebrand, spectral warrior.”
- Abby Yates (McCarthy): “Paranormal researcher, supernatural scientist, entity trapper.”
- Patty Tolan (Jones): “Ghost tracker, municipal historian, metaphysical commando.”
- Jillian Holtzmann (McKinnon): “Nuclear engineer, munitions expert, proton wrangler.”
