Original and new Ghostbusters casts get together for anniversary


Ghostbusters old and new got together for a selfie to mark the 80s film's birthday.

The picture shows original Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts posing with the latest stars - Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones - to strap on the proton packs.

It was shared by Paul Feig, who directed the all-female reboot, to mark the classic movie's release on June 8 1984.

The group got together to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Paul told USA Today: "Seeing the original and new Ghostbusters all together (will be) like being in the presence of the comedy gods on Mount Olympus.

"This is an epic summit of some of the funniest people on the planet."

Ghostbusters will be released in UK cinemas on July 15.
