One of London's most famous railway stations has also been 'slimed' to promote the new movie
Iconic Ghostbusters character Stay Puft Marshmallow Man can now be seen “invading” London’s Waterloo Station to promote the movie’s reboot.
The pesky but beloved blimp returns in the new movie, which opened in UK cinemas yesterday (July 11), where he causes trouble for the new Ghostbusters crew featuring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.
London’s Waterloo Station has also been dribbled with fake-slime to promote the reboot from Bridesmaids/Spy director Paul Feig. Former Parks And Recreation writer Katie Dippold co-wrote the screenplay with Feig.
Alongside the new Ghostbusters crew, Chris Hemsworth appears as the team’s receptionist and Saturday Night Live cast member Neil Casey plays the main villain. Andy Garcia, The Wire‘s Michael K Williams, Saturday Night Live‘s Cecily Strong and Veep‘s Mike McLintock all take on supporting roles too.
Original stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts all appear in cameo roles. Ozzy Osbourne pops up for a cameo too during a sequence set at a rock concert.
The film’s soundtrack features contributions from Fall Out Boy, Missy Elliott, 5 Seconds Of Summer, G-Eazy, Jeremih, Walk The Moon and Wolf Alice. Read NME’s review of the new Ghostbusters movie here.
