First set photos from Paul Feig's Ghostbusters have appeared online

06.18.2015

Well, time to commence the bitching as the first set photos from Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS have shown up online. E! Online posted the photos from the Boston set of GHOSTBUSTERS featuring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon in character. While they may not be sporting proton packs or busting any ghosts in these photos, we do have our first idea of what their characters will look like before they begin battling the paranormal.

McCarthy and Wiig look decidedly down to Earth in their costumes. Wiig especially looks a bit dowdy but that could just be the fuzzy snapshot of her walking to set. McKinnon looks bizarre but who knows how zany she is going to be playing her role. Leslie Jones was not spotted nor was male receptionist Chris Hemsworth.

Unlike many haters, I am reserving judgement on the new GHOSTBUSTERS until I see it in action. I enjoyed BRIDESMAIDS quite a bit and didn't mind THE HEAT either. I think Melissa McCarthy is much more talented that her Chris Farley impersonations let on. If she can be a little more mellow like Kristen Wiig in much of BRIDESMAIDS, this could be a tolerable movie.

GHOSTBUSTERS hits theaters on July 22, 2016.

It's hard to tell from set pics. I do hope the outfits we see are just the beginning stages of their outfits, cause their not even in any kind of uniforms, and where's their proton packs?

I expect this sort of crap from McCarthy, Feig, or the two SNL chicks... But Wiig? I thought you were better than this. This is going to be so awful I hope it destroys their careers. But this being Hollywood, and there being a lot of stupid f***ing movie goers around the world, I'm sure this will make way more money than it deserves.

Whats up with their costumes, is this taking place in the 80's as well?
Bah, why am I even asking, who cares.

I think people's hearts are in the right place, meaning they want to do well and respect the old movies, but this is still the worst idea in the history of Hollywood. Hopefully I'm wrong and it turns out good.

Its never the movies you want to fall through that fall through. And it sucks that they're filming in Boston. The two cities look nothing alike

So if this fails or simply don't care for it I'm a misogynist, right?

The most entertaining thing about this movie is going to be watching all of the middle aged man-children freak out because some girls are playing with their things.

This could be a tolerable movie?

Screw that! That is what everyone should be afraid of, because nothing about this screams the possibility of greatness. Just uninspired casting and a general lack of knowledge of what made the original great. You don't aim for TOLERABLE when making Ghostbusters. To me, it is like they sat down and said let us take everything that made the original a classic and loved by countless fans, and then do the exact opposite.

That picture of McKinnan proves one of my fears: her character is going to he some weird charactet that is the weird kooky person. It will be like some of her more terrible SNL characters. Also.. no pic of Leslie jones... cuz seriously, there is no chance her character is anything but the stereotypical black person who is loud and says "awww hell nah" cuz that is all she does on SNL and she cant even do it well there!

This is what Feig meant by making a scarier Ghostbusters. Confirming every stupid cliche. But it should be funny because they are popular comedic females right? Right? sigh!

The only way this could be worse if is the new rebooted Fantastic Four decided to show up in this.

Ha Ha Ha great comment. But it could never happen because McCarthy would mistake the Thing for Rocky-Road and try to eat him! :)

This is literally one long SNL sketch...

I can't stand Kate Mkinnon. I fast forward through her stupid characters on SNL. She is the BIGGEST reason why I won't watch this shit. But also, the moment this movie hired every chick from SNL, I bailed. It isn't that I don't have hope in the movie, I have no hope in the wastebucket of talentless people they hired.

I'm not as rabid of a fan of Ghostbusters as some people, (It is on my list of greatest films though) and I've always thought the gesture of a new film would be kind of refreshing. But I haven't seen anything from this film yet to make me believe that this will be anything other than a mediocre attempt to bring the franchise back. The kiddies will love it though, and it will make it's millions, so everybody should just ready themselves to bitch about it and it's inevitable sequels in the years

Like a lot of fans, I just can't get excited about this film. I've seen Bridesmaids and The Heat, which were both ok but overrated. I saw that Spy got good reviews, which really puzzles me since I didn't think the trailers looked good at all (other than Statham doing something different). Then again, Big Bang Theory and Modern Family get a lot of critic love for tv comedy, and I could name half a dozen shows I think are funnier. I'm sure there's an audience that will like this film, but sadly I

Statham was the only good actor in Spy. Everyone else just did the same shit from every other Paul Feig movie. It is so overdone at this point. Spy wasn't that great, but Statham made it sort of enjoyable.
