Another red letter day for womankind. The Ghostbusters trailer is here, and four actual women are getting ready to wreak havoc on some ghosts and save New Yawk and the image of women.
It IS quite an encouraging sight to see the much anticipated all-lady power crew today. But when you take a look at everyone’s rap sheet we have Kate McKinnon, brilliant engineer, Kristin Wiig, quantum physicist, Melissa McCarthy leader in a high-tech hat, AAAAAAND Leslie Jones works for the subway system. What she brings to the table other than top notch delivery of WTF lines: she knows New York PLUS PLUS, she has the use of her uncle’s car. Gorgeous. Rock solid gender neutral uniforms? Check. Camaraderie? Check. Credentials? Almost check except for Ms. Jones.
We can keep the rumchata flowing for this all-girl cast, but yeah that’s awkward. At least the proton packs look great.
