Kristin Wiig and Melissa McCarthy are both quite well-known these days thanks to “Bridesmaids”, “The Heat”, and approximately 50,000 recurring characters on Saturday Night Live (and if any of Kristin Wiig’s recurring SNL characters show up in Ghostbusters I am retracting all my excitement). But Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon may not yet be household names, so here’s a few samples of what to look forward to with the rebooted Ghostbusters!

It sounds like the movie will be out in Summer 2016, so we have plenty of time to get excited!
