The new Ghostbusters film is getting all kinds of changes for their new 2016 release. Not only did the lead cast go from all-male in the ’80s to all-female, but the theme song got a new makeover from rockers Fall Out Boy and super producer Missy Elliot.
The song is quite different from the original tune by Ray Parker, Jr. Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliot get crazy with electric guitar sounds and haunting sound effects. You can tell from the intro that this isn’t going to be your parents’ Ghostbusters. What you will find is that the traditional “Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!” chorus is still around but that’s about the only similarities.
The Paul Feig-directed reboot features Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as the ghost-busting foursome ready to protect New York City against the supernatural powers that threaten it. Chris Hemsworth will be working as their sexy secretary who is a bit clueless, but the ladies don’t care.
Love it or hate it, most people are curious about what this new version will bring. With comedic heavy-hitters like Wiig and McCarthy, many people might be surprised by the outcome.
Ghostbusters will open in theaters on July 15.
