The new trailer also shows his interaction with Kristen Wiig‘s character Erin Gilbert, as well as featuring some previously unheard jokes. Watch it below.

In related news, director Paul Feig was forced to defend Ghostbusters cast members Leslie Jones and Melissa McCarthy after both actresses were targeted online.

After Jones threatened to quit Twitter over the abuse, he urged her to “fuck the haters”, branding the star “one of the warmest funniest forces of nature I know”.

He went on to add: “And haters, attack me all you want but when you attack and insult my cast, you’ve crossed the line. Grow up and leave my cast alone.”

Kate McKinnon also stars in Ghostbusters, as well as the likes of Saturday Night Live cast member, Neil Casey, who has been cast as the main villain.
