It is go time for the new ‘Ghostbusters‘ film, as we are now a little under a week away from the premiere, and after all the buzz, harsh criticisms of the trailer, claims of misogyny about the film’s critics who were unhappy over the all female cast, the film finally seems to be tracking well, and Sony is hoping for some big numbers when it premieres next weekend. Which of course means, until it is released, they are going to be promoting it like crazy, starting with the five new clips released today.
The first clip is the before look of the Ecto-mobile:
This second one reveals the ‘Ghostbusters’ ride, which Patty (Leslie Jones) is unhappy about, since they messed with her uncle’s hearse, a car which they borrowed. It also features what appears to be the first call for the ladies, which they almost miss because Chris Hemsworth’s receptionist character is busy asking them for help in picking out the best photo of himself.
And if you need more Chris Hemsworth, this next clip has his character Kevin pitching possible logos for the ghost busting business to Abby (Melissa McCarthy) and Erin (Kristin Wiig):
Of course, what’s a ‘Ghostbusters’ movie without ghosts? In this clip, the team powers up to go against one haunting a subway tunnel:
Lastly, this clip seems to be during the climactic final battle of the film, where the ladies go toe-to-toe with a massive army of ghosts, whom seem ready to destroy New York. We get to see their proton packs in action (as well as the ladies themselves, who wield their weapons with much physicality), with the clip ending with two of the ladies ducking as a ghost axe is thrown at them.

Erin Gilbert (Wiig) and Abby Yates (McCarthy) are a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. A few years later Gilbert lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia University, but her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. Gilbert reunites with Yates and others when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.
