Leslie Jones reacts to criticism of 'Ghostbusters' character
The movie will be in theaters on July 15.
Resident particle physicist and former MIT senior postdoctoral associate James Maxwell acted as a technical adviser for the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot starring Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Melissa McCarthy.
Finally, the full trailer was unleashed and Paul Feig selected a group of die-hard fans dressed up inspired by the classic horror comedy to get a first screening to the trailer. "Just go see the movie!"
The trailer plays tribute to the famous New York Public Liberary scene from 1984 film which starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. The character came in right at the very beginning of the movie and had an elaborate background: he was an Air Force major something, a demolitions guy. "His elaborate background was all gone, replaced by me walking in and saying, 'If there's a steady paycheck in it, I'll believe anything you say.' So that was pretty devastating".
She also wrote a response on Twitter saying, "ITS NOT A MAN, WOMAN, RACE, CLASS THANG!!"
Plot-wise, it looks like more good old ghostbusting (and possible stream crossing), although there might be some time travel going on with Times Sqaure reverting back to its '70s self at one point. "So is MTA worker trash?" she replied to another. "Then so be it!!" Read her tweets below.
