As New ‘Ghostbusters’ Trailer Premieres, Remember When A Ghostbuster Came To Maine?
Today (March 3), Sony Pictures released the first trailer for the remake/reboot of the classic comedy "Ghostbusters."
But before we get to the new trailer, do you remember which classic Ghostbusteer had a cameo appearance in a movie filmed and set in Maine?
The movie was 1995's "Casper," which was shot in the Camden/Rockport area. The Ghostbuster was Ray Stantz, played by Dan Akyroyd, It's a quick cameo, as Stantz proves unable to deal with Casper's horrible ghostly uncles. Take a look:
Now on to the new movie, I wasn't sure what to think about the reboot. I mean, do we really need another "Ghostbusters"? But I do have to say the movie, which was primarily shot in Boston (though it is set in New York), looks halfway decent.
The new all-female cast (Kristin Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon) are funny in the trailer, and the movie seems to stand on its own, while at the same time calling back to the classic film. Slimer, the green ghost from the original movies, makes a brief appearance in the trailer, and while they are not seen, more of the original cast will show up in the new film.
Here's the new trailer. Let us know what you think!
