The first Ghostbusters trailer focused more on the new team than the ghosts themselves, but in the latest trailer, those ghosts are sliming, possessing, and fighting their way through New York City.
In this trailer—which, perhaps in an attempt to not repeat its own record, has yet to be uploaded to Sony‘s YouTube channel—Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), and Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon) face quite the uphill battle between a possessed secretary, government interference, and a giant dragon ghost. But the Ghostbusters have the technology and the brains to take them down—yes, even Slimer.
In addition to plenty of nods to the original movie, the new trailer even coincidentally manages to comment on some of the discussion around the reboot film, as one newscaster asks if the Ghostbusters are to be taken seriously.
“Whatever it is, no one should have to encounter that kind of evil,” a character played by Michael McDonald tells the Ghostbusters. “Except you girls; I think you can handle it.”
Indeed: they’re afraid of no ghosts.
