There's something strange in the neighbourhood and Ghostbusters director Paul Feig has just tweeted about it.

Feig has been drip feeding a constant stream of Ghostbuster paraphernalia giving fans an indication of what to expect in July 2016, when the new female lead reboot is set to be released.

However, it is the iconic car, Ecto-1 that has divided the film's die hard fans. While some appreciated the sneak preview, other were angry about the remade vehicle that has lost its predecessor's Cadillac's tail fins.

If you are wondering what all the fuss is about, this is what the original car looked like:

Earlier in the week, Feig kicked off the Twitter hype by releasing a heavily annotated picture of a proton pack, a vital piece of equipment (as you've guessed) for busting ghosts.

We'll have to wait till 2016 to see if the film will bust the naysayers too, who for the moment seem averse to a remake of the classic.
