11 Things You Didn’t Know About The New "Ghostbusters"

What a time to be alive (because if you were dead, you KNOW you'd have no hope against these ladies). Check out Ghostbusters in theaters July 15.

1. The supernatural VFX are total #squadghouls.

Like, creepily good.

2. It's full of satisfying nostalgia, so you won't miss out on your old faves...


3. ...and there's some new stuff, too.

If this doesn't justify a selfie, WE DON'T KNOW WHAT DOES.

4. Kate McKinnon said this is "the closest character to my actual self that I've ever played."

So you know the character's funny, brilliant, and an all-around badass. Sold.

5. The actors are committed to their comedy.

Very, VERY committed. Plz say these only took one take.

6. And they're legit warriors, too.

Sry ghosts. Ouch.

7. Experts from MIT's Laboratory for Nuclear Science were consulted about how proton packs would actually function IRL.

Not all heroes wear capes.

8. And all those rando calculations drawn on boards and papers? Those have also been vetted by MIT math pros.

Do you see the easter egg? DO YOU SEE IT?? (Hint: Look very closely at the equation at the top of the whiteboard.) Too. Good.

9. The new Ecto-1 will not disappoint. You will *need* this hood ornament immediately or your life will be ruined.

BTW, this time, the Ecto-1 is based on a hearse... Appropriately morbid, no?

10. It's directed and co-written by Paul Feig, whose previous pairings with Melissa McCarthy have us beyond eager. We're freaking out a bit.

You know the visuals will be incredible because LOOK AT HOW WELL HE DRESSES DEAR GOD TAKE US WE'RE YOURS.

11. Chris Hemsworth plays the secretary, and he's more than just a pretty face.

Kristen Wiig said, "He's such a funny improviser." If she says so, it must be true.

12. (But yeah, he's obviously that other thing, too.)

Not sure we can handle three Chrises at the same time...BUT WE'RE WILLING TO TRY.
