5 things we learned from the 'Ghostbusters' trailer explained in GIFs

Who ya gonna call? The answer is still the same - but this time the Ghostbusters are all women. Very, very funny women. It's been more than three decades since the side-splitting original and we can't wait for the reboot to hit theatres this summer.

The official trailer for the highly-anticipated movie was released on Thursday (Mar. 3) showing the newest ghost butt kickers: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. "Someone is creating a device that amplifies paranormal activity and we might be the only ones who can stop it,” says Kristen’s character Erin Gilbert. Also helping save the day is the gang’s secretary played by the hunky Chris Hemsworth.

Here is what we learned from watching the film’s first trailer.

The gear: No offence to the original crew (Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Harold Ramis) but the Ghostbuster uniforms look much more stylish on the female cast.

The new help: Chris Hemsworth makes one hot secretary and proves he can pull off any look, even nerdy glasses. The Thor actor takes over for the film’s original receptionist Janine Melnitz, played by Annie Potts.

The Slimer has returned: The green ghost, which dispels slime and won over audiences in 1984 is back and ready to make things spooky.

ECTO-1 is a hearse: Like Bill, Dan and the original crew, the female Ghostbusters need a sweet ride to get them to their busting jobs. However, unlike the 1959 Cadillac ambulance used in the original movie, the new squad have to drive around town in a Cadillac Fleetwood hearse.

The music is still totally timeless: Sure the original movie premiered in the '80s, but the classic theme song is as fresh now as it was back then.

Ghostbusters flies into theatres on July 15.
