New International Trailer for Ghostbusters, Now With More Hemsworth


By Karen Valenzuela, @VictoriaNoir89

There were some mixed reviews of the first Ghostbusters trailer that came out last week. It’s safe to say many of the original critics of the all-female Ghostbuster concept felt vindicated by the first footage of the newest members of the Ghostbusting squad. A lot of these criticisms smack of that same tired-as-all-get-out argument that women can’t be as funny as men.

Some critics were also upset that the film is stereotyping Leslie Jones’ character by making her an MTA worker, rather than a scientist like Wiig’s or McKinnon’s characters. Many took to Twitter to chastise the Saturday Night Live actress/comedian, and she came back with a few choice words for critics:

Director Paul Feig said in an interview that the MTA worker was originally written for Melissa McCarthy’s character, but that he had already seen her in roles similar to that and wanted something different for her.

This new international trailer released is being called Feig’s response to online criticisms. It addresses race, for one. It also plays to the whole all-female-Ghostbusters controversy in an amazingly funny way, with receptionist Kevin (Hemsworth) being tasked to create the squad’s new logo and coming up with a ghost with lipstick, long eyelashes, and giant breasts. Well played, Feig. I see what you did there.

With more Kevin the receptionist, more Patty the MTA worker, and more footage we didn’t see in last week’s trailer, it’s safe to say this was the more complete of the two. It’s also safe to say the closer we get to the premiere date, the more excited I get about this film.

Let’s all say it together…I ain’t afraid of no ghost!

Ghostbusters, which also stars Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Melissa McCarthy, premieres July 14, 2016!
