A new image for the upcoming Ghostbusters title has been dropped. This time, the fresh set of ghost busting heroes is rocking proton packs and standing in a very green, very foggy room.
The female cast for this new entry, from left to right, is Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones. Thanks to some news over the summer, we even know these characters’ names. No, it’s not as nice as “Doe, Ray, Egon!” We have McCarthy as Abby Yates, McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, Kristen Wiig as Erin Gilbert and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan.
The all-female roster has been a source for a lot of heated discussion online, but I’ll plainly put myself in the “if it’s good, who cares?” category.
I love Ghostbusters, friends.
Planet Ghostbusters, the source for the still you see above, indicates that this is the first official image from the flick in their tweet.

Our own Sean Aune actually pointed me to this shot, which has been out for a while, as the genuine first official image for the new movie.
Ghostbusters is slated to hit theaters on July 15, 2016.
