So, with the Ghostbusters from Paul Feig’s reboot being in Boston and visiting sick children (here), we pointed out that the proton packs they were wearing were clearly different than the ones we had been shown a while back (here).
Some fans took this a little personally (shocker!), while we speculated that perhaps, at some point in the movie, the team get upgraded packs, it seems that we were wrong and also that the fans have nothing to worry about.
Feig, getting a bit of grief over the new packs, tweeted (below) that the packs they wore above were only prototypes and all is good.
Now, while this is possible, we wonder why the actresses were wearing prototypes when they visited the children? We actually don’t think it’s too likely.
But, hey, what do we know?
The proton pack I originally tweeted is accurate. The ones that leaked out the other day are prototypes. All good. https://t.co/LNYOx2me9R

In related news, several places are reporting that this actress, Chaunty Spillane, is cast as a ghost in the movie and will be called the Showgirl Ghost; reports also suggest that the effects will be largely practical on the spooks. We get an Eleanor Tweedy sort of vibe off her… that’s the library ghost, folks… what about you all?
