WATCH: Celebrate Administrative Professionals Day with the Ghostbusters’ new assistant, Kevin PLUS new character posters

April 26th, 2016 by Marc Comments


April 27th is Administrative Professionals Day, and the new Ghostbusters’ assistant, Kevin (Chris Hemsworth), is here to remind you to celebrate your assistant tomorrow.

Kevin sets his own unique (and extremely handsome) bar as an assistant. Not every office can have a Kevin, but if your assistant keeps you organized, running on schedule, and your workplace completely free of ghosts, then he or she is just the kind of assistant that deserves celebrating.

Re-imagining the classic 80s blockbuster, the modern story centers on Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and Abby Yates(Melissa McCarthy), who, years ago, wrote a book that posited ghosts do in fact exist.

The plot picks up with Erin acquiring a teaching position at the prestigious Columbia University, but she is laughed out of academia once word of her book surfaces. At the same time, Abby is working with a new partner, Jillian Holtzman (Kate McKinnon), just as a new slew of ghosts begin to invade New York City. Erin ends up joining forces with Abby and Jillian, along with a new partner Patty (Leslie Jones), to save the Big Apple from these ghosts.

The supporting cast includes Chris Hemsworth as the Ghostbusters’ secretary, Andy Garcia as the mayor of New York City, Michael K. Williams as Hawkins, Matt Walsh as Rourke, Pat Kiernan as a news anchor and Neil Casey as the human villain. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and Ernie Hudson – the original movie’s principal cast – have all been confirmed for cameo appearances.

The official trailer had its moments, namely the ghosts on show – and this newly-released Japanese trailer features even more ghostly action, if you can excuse the awkward comedy.

Ghostbusters will be released on July 15

Check out the three posters of Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones (where’s Melissa McCarthy?) below…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
