Fans got a taste of the much-anticipated upcoming Ghostbusters reboot today with the debut of a trailer for the female-focused film.

Directed by hit filmmaker Paul Feig and produced by original creator Ivan Reitman, the paranormal-themed comedy puts four of today's funniest actresses in the spotlight: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers) also appears.

Coming more than 30 years after the original sci-fi comedy classic, does this new band of Ghostbusters have the same chemistry as the earlier troupe? Does the humour change with women in the lead roles? Jelena Adzic reports in the video below.
