Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.
Paranormal researcher Abby Yates and physicist Erin Gilbert are trying to prove that ghosts exist in modern society. When strange apparitions appear in Manhattan, Gilbert and Yates turn to engineer Jillian Holtzmann for help. Also joining the team is Patty Tolan, a lifelong New Yorker who knows the city inside and out. Armed with proton packs and plenty of attitude, the four women prepare for an epic battle as more than 1,000 mischievous ghouls descend on Times Square.
Jillian Holtzmann eats Pringles potato chips as she ghost hunts. In the original Ghostbusters (1984), Venkman has an open bag of Wise chips with him when he meets Walter Peck. See more »

The Aldridge Mansion is the only 19th century home in New York City preserved both inside and out. At the time of its construction, it was one of the most elegant homes in existence featuring every luxury including a face bidet and an anti-Irish security fence.

They Are Already Making Another Ghostbusters
And it is our fault.
It is my fault.
It is your fault.
This gender switch Ghostbusters was unfunny, gross and mostly forced.
The bigger picture is the lack of originality and freshness. Hollywood has normalized the endless remakes and reboots, a world where everything is a franchise, but it should not be. It is about new experiences and not the staleness of the familiar. This one was distinctly angry and put women into a position of adequateness when in fat body suits, but we the audiences need to demand better.
