Yates, Holtzmann, Tolan and Gilbert – those are your new Venkman, Stanz, Zeddemore and Spengler as the Ghostbusters return!
Inane controversy aside (and trust me – no-one’s childhood is in any danger here…) Paul Feig’s new instalment in the Ghostbusters saga looks fantastic, and there’s no doubting the talent in front of the camera.
