Ghostbusters Director Paul Feig Shares Ecto-1: First Look
by Anthony Wetmore (@TheMisterPipes, GhostConch)
Jumping off the last post, here is the first look at the updated Ecto-1 for the coming Ghostbusters film starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig. Director Paul Feig (@PaulFeig) tweeted this photo with the hashtag #whattheygonnadrive earlier this morning and upon request also provided a rear view as well, also pictured here sporting the ever familiar logo.
What are you all feeling about the new Ecto-1 look? Personally I feel it captures the look, heaviness and reality this new Ghostbusters film needs to take off beyond being just another cash grab dip into the nostalgia pool. We lose the classic Cadillac look. Gone are the fins for a fresh yet retro inspired take on the Ecto-1. Time will tell if there is any irony to be found in it’s very clear hearse turned ‘buster mobile style. Perhaps Feig is intending to wink harder at death and comedy with a keener eye.
How do these shots of the Ecto-1 make you guys feel? Let us know if you’re just as excited as we are. Furthermore, who ya gonna call?!
