Ghostbusters trailer: Watch Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig star in Paul Feig's reboot

Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones certainly aren't afraid of no ghosts

The trailer for Paul Feig's hotly-anticipated reboot of the 1984 comedy Ghostbusters has finally dropped; after months of careful teasing and an extremely ambiguous teaser.

Reaped from the strongest players of Saturday Night Live's modern history, and one box office queen, the new film pitches Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones against the forces of the supernatural.

And this trailer promises Feig's put all the right elements into play; with the same kind of half-nostalgic, half-revamped feel that pushed The Force Awakens to such resounding success.

The centrality of New York City, the car, and the ghosts all feel the same; but populated within this established universe wander new, distinctively-painted characters with all the potential to become as iconic as their predecessors.

There's still very little to go on story-wise, but we do briefly get to see Chris Hemsworth in his role as the team's secretary; he'll be starring alongside the likes of Andy Garcia, Michael Kenneth Williams, Cecily Strong, and Neil Casy.

Ghostbusters hits UK theatres 15 July.
