Ghostbusters (2016)

Writer-director Paul Feig's remake of the 1984 fantasy comedy stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Physics professor Erin Gilbert is alarmed when her old friend Abby Yates decides to republish a book they co-authored about the paranormal. Then, they both openly believed in the phenomena; now, Erin fears she would be fired for the opinions she once held. Abby's price for ditching publication is for Erin to assist her and her eccentric inventor friend Jillian Holtzmann in investigating a spate of spectral sightings in Manhattan. What they see revives Erin's belief in ghosts, but also gets her the sack. The trio become paranormal investigators and are joined by Patty Tolan, a transport worker and history buff who has independently witnessed the influx of ghosts. And soon enough they're battling a man who aims to invoke the Apocalypse by summoning malevolent supernatural entities to New York.
