Sony has dropped the first trailer for its reboot of the classic film Ghostbusters, which portrays the new team battling together to save New York from an assembly of ghosts.

In the trailer we are first introduced to Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), who is a paranormal researcher, particle physicist Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), and nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), who try and communicate with a ghost.

Later we meet Patty Tolan a subway worker (Leslie Jones), who volunteers to assist the group in their investigation as she informs viewers ‘I know New York and I can borrow a car from my uncle’.

The team soon discover that someone in the city is amplifying psychic activity, and they must use their ghostbusting tools to free New York from the ghosts.

So be prepared for a whole lot of ectoplasm, possession, ghostbustng action and the return of the Ecto-1 car.
