‘Ghostbusters’ International Trailer Features New Footage, More Chris Hemsworth

The international trailer for the upcoming “Ghostbusters” reboot offers new footage from the highly anticipated film.

While the latest trailer contains a lot of scenes that were already featured in the first trailer, it does home in a bit more on Chris Hemsworth’s character Kevin, who appeared only once in the first trailer. The international peek shows Kevin applying for the job as the Ghostbusters’ receptionist and suggesting a logo for the team.

“Is it the boobs you don’t like?” Kevin asks when revealing a logo of a rather well-endowed ghost. “Because I can make them bigger.”

The trailer also gives a glimpse at a scene at a rock concert crawling with ghosts. A stage-diving attempt from Leslie Jones’ character Patty fails as concert-goers flee instead of catching her.

“I don’t know if it was a race thing or a lady thing, but I’m mad as hell,” she says from the floor, a possible nod to the controversy surrounding the film over race and gender.

The first trailer for the anticipated reboot, which dropped last week, managed to rack up more than 24 million views across YouTube and Facebook in its first 24 hours. That number topped both “Independence Day: Resurgence” and “The Legend of Tarzan” in opening-day trailer views.

“Ghostbusters,” directed by Paul Feig, stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon alongside Jones and Hemsworth. It hits theaters in the U.S. on July 15.

    Great, establish the white characters as brilliant, creative scientists and then not only do they lazily throw in a brown person to fill an obvious quota but they make sure that we all know that the big, loud black woman was NOT hired for brain power but merely because she knows “the streets”, in this case, the subway tunnels?
    Why?
    Why exclude non white people? What is so sacred that you can’t bare to share the stage with people who’s skin is not the same as you?
    Why when you do throw a crumb, must you throw it so far away from respectable character development and core plot that they have to hurt themselves just to get the scraps? This practice pollutes the public consciousness, reinforces destructive stereotypes, and emboldens the cycle of anti-black behavior. Selfish insecurity across all genres and beyond…
    and i’m white btw. This is just so pervasive and flagrant, we can’t keep pretending exclusion and subjugation are okay, never mind necessary.

    eFF I were a $cientologist I’d be run away from this film! Raw thetans running loose everywhere! And that Trayvon kid’s muttha getting a lead role! Not to mention a Satanic Illuminati concert, all it needs is Katy Perry & Miley Cyrus! Poor Chris Hemsworth, could do so much better than this tripe! He’s the HUNTSMAN! HANG OUT WIT BABES LIKE JESSICA CHASTAIN! He’s the real Winter Soldier, sorry Bucky! He don’t need no Captain Emerica!

    This is essentially Mad City (Travolta, Hoffman) in a slightly different setting. When will Hollywood take a risk on something we haven’t seen before?

    Is this thing really highly anticipated?! How sad if it is.
