The trailer for the upcoming ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot is here and it looks like cinemagoers are in for a treat this summer.

More than 30 years after the original Bill Murray-led ‘Ghostbusters’ hit cinemas, Melissa McCarthy is taking charge in the new paranormal squad, and fans of the franchise have now been treated to an exciting first look at the film.

Paul Feig is taking over directing duties of the new film, and anyone who loved the sense of humour of his previous efforts ‘Bridesmaids’, ‘The Heat’ and ‘Spy’ will be pleased to see it has definitely been carried over to ‘Ghostbusters’, with several laugh-out-loud moments in the two-minute trailer alone.

'Ghostbusters' hits cinemas later this year

We won’t spoil it for you, but you can look forward to a souped-up hearse, a double-slap and, of course, a whole load of gunk.

There’s also a real nostalgia kick as a modernised version of the original ‘Ghostbusters’ theme tune arrives just as the new team begin to assemble.

Joining Melissa in the new female-led ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot include her ‘Bridesmaids’ co-star Kristen Wiig, alongside ‘Saturday Night Live’ stars Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

Chris Hemsworth is also in the case as Kevin the receptionist, making a quick appearance in the new clip, while original ‘Ghostbusters’ actors Sigourney Weaver, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson and Dan Aykroyd are all putting in appearances.

‘Ghostbusters’ is currently slated for release in UK cinemas on 15 July.

While the fact the new ‘Ghostbusters’ cast was to be led by women was not looked upon well by everyone *eye roll*, it was later reported that Channing Tatum would be starring in a separate, more action-centric, interpretation of the franchise.
