New ‘Ghostbusters’ Poster and Featurettes Assemble the Ghost-Bustin’ Team
Following their delightful appearance with the original Ghostbusters cast on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the ladies of Paul Feig’s reboot — along with their dopey receptionist — have assembled in a brand new poster. And if that’s not enough for you, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy each have their very own featurette, offering a proper intro to their respective characters along with a little dose of new footage.

Finally, we have Patty Tolan, played by SNL fave Leslie Jones. Patty works for the MTA and spends her free time reading up on the history of New York. Her confidence, fearlessness and invaluable knowledge of the city make her a great addition to the team:
And here’s that brand new poster, which features the whole crew along with Kevin, their hunky but simple receptionist played by Chris Hemsworth. He seems to be giving his best, most adorable James Bond pose here:
Ghostbusters hits theaters on July 15.
