Ghostbusters releasing on 29th July
Sony Pictures presents
‘Ghostbusters’ is an American supernatural comedy film directed by Paul Feig who has also co-written
the script along with Katie Dippold. It is the third feature film in the Ghostbusters series and it stars
Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones as four women who start a ‘ghost-
catching’ business in New York City!
Paranormal researcher Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) and physicist Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) are
trying to prove that ghosts exist in modern society. When strange apparitions appear in Manhattan,
Gilbert and Yates turn to engineer Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon) for help. Also joining the team is
Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), a lifelong New Yorker who knows the city inside and out. Armed with proton
packs and plenty of attitudes the four women prepare for an epic battle as more than 1,000
mischievous ghosts descend on Times Square.
To trace the back story, Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates are co-authors of a book which deliberates on the
existence of paranormal phenomenon such as ghosts. When the book proves unpopular, Gilbert
distances herself and eventually becomes a physics professor at Columbia University while Yates
continues to study the paranormal at a technical college with eccentric engineer Dr. Jillian Holtzmann.
Years later, Gilbert learns Yates republished the book, threatening her bid for tenure at Columbia.
Gilbert reunites with Yates and, in exchange for getting the book out of publication, agrees to assist
Yates and Holtzmann on a paranormal investigation.
The group witness and document a malevolent ghost, renewing Gilbert's belief in the paranormal.
Kevin Beckman (Chris Hemsworth) joins the group as a receptionist! The film which has been made at
a cost of $144 million reportedly has a running time of about 116 minutes.
Music–Theodore Shapario; Cinematography- Robert Yeoman;
Based on Ghostbusters created by Ivan Reitman, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis
