Ghostbusters director Paul Feig describes Melissa McCarthy's character as a "paranormal researcher, supernatural scientist, entity trapper"
If you didn’t already know who to call, here is your answer!
It’s been more than 30 years since Slimer and his crew were targeted in the revered original movie, but now there’s a new female crew in town – and they’re ready to take down the supernatural in the Ghostbusters reboot.
PEOPLE, TIME, InStyle and Entertainment Weekly have your exclusive first look at the official Ghostbusters character posters, introducing fans to the new ghost-hunting team.
In this black-and-white poster, Melissa McCarthy clenches her jaw and grips her proton gun as she prepares to toast a ghost. And like the male ghostbusters before her, McCarthy, 45, is decked out in her jumpsuit, with her character’s last name, Yates, stitched across her chest.
Director Paul Feig describes McCarthy’s character to PEOPLE as “Abby Yates: Paranormal researcher, supernatural scientist, entity trapper.”
The posters arrive just one day after the release of the first official image from the film.
Ghostbusters hits theaters July 22, 2016.
