Ghostbusters roast a Marshmallow Man in new TV spots
Sony Pictures has released four new Ghostbusters TV spots, one of which features the return of everyone’s favorite sailor, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man! Check them out below, and before you get up in arms about how bad he looks, keep in mind that it appears he’s part of a parade of ghost balloons from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, as seen in one of the other spots.
The new Ghostbusters film sees Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy as scientists Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, respectively. Gilbert is a particle physicist while Yates, Gilbert’s close friend, is an expert in the paranormal. As ghost sightings ramp up, they team with Kate McKinnon‘s Jillian Holtzmann, a nuclear engineer who winds up creating the team’s tech. Leslie Jones‘ Patty Tolan, then, is the team’s everyman character who winds up playing an important role connected to an early supernatural encounter.
It also stars Chris Hemsworth as the new secretary, Andy Garcia as the Mayor of New York City, Michael K. Williams as a character named “Hawkins,” Matt Walsh as a character named “Rourke,” and Neil Casey as the film’s villain. New York City’s NY1 news anchor Pat Kiernan is also set to appear as news anchor in the film.
The Ghostbusters movie is directed by Paul Feig from a script he co-wrote with Katie Dippold. It will debut in theaters on July 15.
