New 'Ghostbusters' Team Assembles in Cast Photo

Through social media, Paul Feig has shown us the new suits, the new proton packs and the new Ecto-1. Now, the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot director has tweeted out the first official look at Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kriten Wiig and Kate McKinnon together and suited up to take on some Class 5 Full-Roaming Vapors.

I'm not going to rant about how this reboot somehow ruins the original film — everything 80s is getting remade at this point — but I still don't understand why this couldn't have been linked to the original films in at least a tenuous way. For example, let's say the Ghostbusters were franchised, and after nearly three decades of immense success, there are seemingly no more ghosts to catch and this crew is the last remaining regional branch. A new supernatural threat arises, and they're the only ones left that can deal with it. Boom. Done. I'm instantly more interested.

Still, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't at least interested in this movie at this point, and I'm actually curious to see what the first trailer looks like. What do you guys think?
