New Ghostbusters trailer offers more ghosts and more laughs

The first trailer for Ghostbusters didn't exactly go down well, with Melissa McCarthy herself noting that it left her a little confused. I don't think that applies to the trailer which Sony Pictures have unveiled today; packed with plenty of new footage, it reveals a little more of the plot and action in Paul Feig's reboot.

This trailer is a vast improvement over the first promo; the jokes are funnier, the effects look impressive, and it's clear that the cast have a lot of chemistry. While I am worried that it reveals a little too much - it looks like the main ghost will take control of Chris Hemsworth in the final act - I'm fully on board for this movie.  

Directed by Paul Feig and starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth, Ghostbusters opens in UK and US cinemas on July 15, 2016.
