Check out the new proton packs from Paul Feig's Ghostbusters

06.30.2015

Yesterday, director Paul Feig revealed the costumes for his GHOSTBUSTERS flick and they looked . . . well, exactly what you'd think they'd look like. The man's brought in plenty of controversy by hiring only women to portray the titular 'Busters, but it doesn't look he's going to be straying too far from the designs of the original costumes.

Next up we have the proton packs. These bad boys are (in case you've forgotten) backpack-sized particle accelerators that are capable of firing a stream of protons that polarizes the negatively charged energy of a ghost, allowing it to be held in the stream. Yeah, science! Check out Feig's iteration of these "ghost catchers" below!

Much like the costumes, the proton packs don't differ too greatly from the classic design. They're a little less bulky than the originals (you can see a comparison below), but what I really dig is the seemingly makeshift quality of them. You can see through to the little wires on the inside, and it LOOKS like something that would actually do some damage. More importantly, I really hope they nail the sound design of these things! Perhaps we'll get a picture of the girls in outfit next?

GHOSTBUSTERS will arrive in theaters on July 22, 2016.

Which proton pack design do you prefer?

I said it yesterday when the suits were revealed, that the over all look of the costumes were gonna weigh heavily on how he proton packs look. I'd say they look pretty good. I still wanna see them in action though to really judge!

I've got nothing new to add that I haven't said before. So I'll just take another sip of alcohol to dull the pain of my inner child and shake my head sadly

Why would a modern day proton back look like it was made in 1920 compared to the other one. Seriously! Is the Rocketeer going to show up as well?

Holy F**k! The original design looks much much much better than this new turd. The new one look like a pan and fryer in my kitchen, for God's sake! Why mess up a good design when you know it looks and works so well??

Still not convincing me Mr. Feig, you can get the original car also & it still won't get my attention.

I think the idea of having exposed wires and open areas for a nuclear accelarator pack seems potentially hazardous. I guess the sequel the girls will be ghosts. Not digging the new proton packs, but not digging a lot about this movie so...yeah...there's that.

I hate everyone making this movie. I hate the studio. I hate the director. I hate the cast. I hate the writers. I hate the costume designers. I hate the sound guys. I hate the editors. I hate the cameraman. I hate the grips. I hate the caterers. I hate the young lad who's temping as a runner on his first big budget movie, he's barely involved but he holds the gaffer tape when needs be, AND I HATE HIM FOR IT.

I hate the set painter, and by proxy I hate the company he buys his paint from. I will go on to hate the cinemas that show this film. I will hate the poor staff who have to sell people tickets through gritted teeth. But more than anything else I will hate the people who actually buy tickets, I will hate them with an endless burning passion, an almost violent outburst of wreckless abandon.

Ah yes, that moment when you realize that your stupid friend, the one who used to wear his Kenner Real Ghostbusters Proton Pack upside-down during scenes in which you nailed every syllable while he flubbed them all horrendously, is now in charge of rebooting the movie you love more than oxygen.
