New Ghostbusters video has Kobe Bryant and other NBA stars suiting up

Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot is just over a month away from its cinematic debut, and that means we'll probably be seeing a flurry of fresh footage in the coming weeks. The film is confirmed to feature a few cameos - Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray among them - and while it's unlikely Kobe Bryant will show up in the movie he and other NBA stars (and, er, Spike Lee) see a little bit of ghost-busting action in this new ad. 

Check it out below...

The commercial probably won't do much to change the minds of naysayers, but airing this during the widely-viewed NBA finals is smart marketing. The Black Mamba should probably stay retired though...

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.
