‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Proton Pack Revealed (PHOTO)
Director Paul Feig has been slowly trickling out information on his upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Yesterday, it was the costumes. Today? The Proton Pack!
Shared on Twitter with the hashtag #whatyougonnashoot, Feig revealed the design for the new proton packs in the reboot. For the uninitiated, these packs are the tools used by the Ghostbusters in order to corral all the ghosts. So while the costumes certainly give them the look of a Ghostbuster, it’s the proton packs that give a Ghostbuster her ability to actually bust ghosts. Check out the first look at the proton pack below:

Honestly, they look a whole hell of a lot like the old proton packs, which is pretty terrific. The design of the proton packs was really something that didn’t need altering, so I’m glad they’ve been left mostly intact.
The Ghostbusters reboot doesn’t hit theaters until July 22, 2016, but until then, let us know what you think of the new proton packs in the comments!
