An international version of the first trailer for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot has been released by Sony today and contains quite a bit of new stuff – including a whole lot more of the team’s secretary Kevin (Thor’s Chris Hemsworth), who was only glimpsed very briefly in the original teaser.
In addition to Mr. Hemsworth, there’s also a few extra gags, most of which actually work pretty well. Gone is the much-maligned “power of Patty compels you” Exorcist bit, and instead we get some new interplay between the ladies, and a funny scene at the end with Kevin having a go at designing the team’s logo.
Then again, we also get a tired old ‘crowd moves out of the way of a stage dive’ scene just to even things out.
Overall, though, this is a better trailer that the first one, and highlights the great potential of Feig’s principal cast: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.
Ghostbusters spooks its way into theaters on July 15.
