The New Ghostbusters Proton Packs Have Arrived!

Following yesterday’s reveal of the official costumes from his upcoming Ghostbusters film, director Paul Feig has revealed another image from the set of the film, this time showing off the brand-new Proton Packs. You can see the full image in the gallery and we’ve added a comparison to the original proton packs below.

“I’m having a lot of fun playing with genres,” Feig told of the new film earlier this year, “…I love the original film, but I also just love the idea of busting ghosts and kind of paranormal warriors. I thought, ‘You know, if I could do this with the funny women I know and kind of just do a new origin story…’ I’m more interested in what would happen today. You know, you see things on TV about ghosts, but none of it’s real. What if, suddenly, something started happening? What happens when that just begins to happen to people? Also, how do they develop their technology? It’s not as fun if they’re just handed their proton packs. It’s why it’s not as fun to do a sequel. The fun is getting there.”

Ghostbusters is currently filming in New York City with plans for additional photography in Boston. Starring Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth, the film is targeting a July 22, 2016 release.
