Check out the first pic of the Ghostbusters cast hanging out together

While not everyone is looking forward to Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS remake with the utmost enthusiasm, it IS coming and the sooner folks accept it, the sooner we can move on! With that said, we're probably still a ways away from any promotional art or pictures, but given the recent 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, we now have a picture of all the leads hanging out together, courtesy of Leslie Jones.

Here's a closer look:

There's no doubt as far as I'm concerned that between Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, there's plenty of talent to go around. Whether or not that's enough to do justice to the legacy set up by Ivan Reitman and Co. is a different story. It's more than safe to say that no one's expecting much from this iteration, so at least they have THAT going for 'em!

Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS will hit theaters on July 22, 2016.

Now which ones are the talented ones? Kidding, I know its Wiig. This cast is just a gimmick in my opinion

Yes, this is true. This cast has no dicks.

Well that's what I've heard!

The new Ghostbusters is just a new version of the game

Is is sexiest to say this casting of Ghostbusters is shit? No, cause the only "good" cast member is Kristen Wiig. I'm not against a female Ghosterbuster, but why must it be an all female group? Or at the very least THIS group of SNL characters? Thank god at least it wasn't another Tina and Amy show, but I think Tina would've been better than 75% of this cast. I hate to say it, but most of the recent comedy actresses on SNL are not that funny. Did you see Melissa McCarthy's impression of Matt

I hate to say it, but most of the recent comedy actresses on SNL are not that funny. Did you see Melissa McCarthy's impression of Matt Foyle (Chris Farley) on the SNL 40 show? It was painful to watch! Made me long for Chris to strike her down and finish the act for us one last final time. Would you cast a woman as James Bond? No. Would you cast a white guy as Martin Luther King Jr. No! Would you cast a black man to be Abraham Lincoln? No!
Leslie Jones looks like she should be playing Gozer at best!
Leslie Jones is if Slimmer and Gozer mated and had a baby!

Here's how things are going to unfold....sadly

The studio knows the risks in making this film, and knows people will be booing and hissing all over the internet. Keep this in mind, the studio will need to start promoting the film with old familiar sights, sounds, bells and whistles, maybe even a familiar theme song, possibly one or two funny gags from the film. People will then grow interest based on pure nostalgic feelings and some may even be down with a female cast of new Ghostbusters. Audiences who know nothing but the name Ghostbusters

Audiences who know nothing but the name Ghostbusters will flock to the film and see it whether it's labeled as good or dog shit (sadly the warnings don't matter to the majority of people). The film will make enough money for the studio to say, "Great! The people want more. 2 more sequels!" when really we didn't want a sequel like this to begin with.

To quote the ghostly apparitions they will be busting. "Boooooooooooooooooo! [link] No one wants this! Well, let's say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of negative posting energy on the Joblo site. Based on this morning's sample and every other post about this horrible idea of a beloved franchise, it would be a Twinkie... thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds. This movie is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions!

Even Kate McKinnon looks very funny in that picture. I hope she will shine in this movie because she's very funny.

Sweet!

Looks like McCarthy has been hitting the gym. I guess that will put to rest any concerns of cheap "I'm-so-fat-I-can't-run" jokes.

Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis and Zoe Saldana.

THAT's an all female Ghostbusters cast I could get behind! 😉

If all you want is eye-candy. The original Ghostbusters were comedians, so it makes sense the reboot would maintain that strategy. Not that Jennifer Lawrence isn't funny.

If you consider the "I'm funny because I'm loud" style of comedy to be funny. Then, yes, she is funny. To everyone else she is barely tolerable.

When will these lazy, bullshit remakes go away? Seriously this has gotten out of hand. We are getting reboots of remakes of remakes. Ghostbusters has never been outclassed in its genre, and to remake is to say "I can do better!". Yeah fucking right. You can't do better than the best, and if you could you wouldn't be blatantly stealing in the first place.

Can hardly call it a remake. I'm not entirely behind this film, but it's at least an actual sequel.

All this bitching makes no sense.

Four talented-ass, funny women. No Megan Fox. No Kristen Stewart. Nobody even close.

A talented, funny director.

A beloved franchise.

Quit hating.

I won't accept it and I won't be moving on. I especially won't be supporting it. I still have time to sell my soul to the devil in return for a nice elaborate North Korean hack threat to stop this abomination from being shown. I have never been in support of censorship until now.

Ugh, this is going to suck

I don't know how they can pull this off. The cast is just so annoying. As separate actresses, maybe 2 of them are worth a damn (Wiig is great in Dramas like Skeleton Twins) but come on Leslie Jones?! Kate "One Voice For Every Character" McKinnon?

They aren't even attractive really, they are just the 5 cheapest female comedians they could hire. It is sad.
