Ghostbusters is one of the most beloved films of all time, so it’s maybe not that surprising to see it getting a remake – the twist is, that this time all the Ghostbusters are played by female cast members. Brought to you by the team who made the smash hit comedy Bridesmaids, the movie is dividing fans everywhere. But even if you think the remake is sacrilege, you have to admit these new Funko POP! figures do look cute… AND we get confirmation of the names of two of the ghosts in the movie – Rowan, who looks like the iconic logo and Gertrude, a female ghost.
Paul Feig’s redux of the 80s classic Ghostbusters sees Kristen Wiig play Erin Gilbert, a particle physicist, academic firebrand, spectral warrior. Kate McKinnon is Jillian Holtzmann, a nuclear engineer, munitions expert, and proton wrangler. Melissa McCarthy is Abby Yates, a paranormal researcher, supernatural scientist, and entity trapper. And Leslie Jones is Patty Tolan, a ghost tracker, municipal historian, and metaphysical commando.
With paranormal activity on the rise, a Columbia University academic, her ghost-chasing friend, the friend’s business partner, and an MTA employee join forces to bust ghosts and save New York.
Directed by Paul Feig, Ghostbusters is set for a UK release on Friday 15th July. These Funko figures should be available in stores May/June 2016.
