Sony Pictures Entertainment teases fans with a new “Ghostbusters” footage, announcing that the first official trailer is set to launch on March 3.

Paul Feig's Ghostbusters, which will be released in theatres on July 15, stars Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Melissa McCarthy. Chris Hemsworth also joins the all-female cast as the Ghostbusters’ assistant.

The video (watch below) was posted on YouTube on Feb. 14, the fateful day when the world would end, according to Ghostbusters II. While the 28-second trailer announcement doesn’t show the movie’s lead stars or the ghosts they’ll be busting, it hints that the girls will be facing an ominous enemy. The video shows a huge contingent of soldiers and policemen gather and prepare to attack someone, or something. 

The teaser also flashes the film’s iconic line, “Who you gonna call?” followed by the beloved Ghostbusters logo.

Earlier this month, Sony circulated official images of the movie reboot’s cast members. A photo of the ghost-busting ladies, completely suited up, was released, as well as close-up individual shots of each female lead. Hemsworth’s nerdy look as Kevin was also made public, which earned fans’ approval.

Also this month, images of the “Ghostbusters” LEGO set was also released, which comes with mini-figure forms Wiig, Jones, McKinnon and McCarthy. Images of the new LEGO set, which can be viewed at Brickset, show that the characters come with their iconic gears. The site states that the set is priced at US$59.99 (AU$84.92). 

Fans will also get to play with the LEGO version of the girls’ rides, namely the Ecto-1 and Ecto-2. Both vehicles will be available this summer, according to Lego. The set also features a mini-figure of Hemsworth.  
In January, “Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig shared Mattel's new prototype figures inspired by the movie’s characters. In a Twitter post, Feig showed the six-inch tall figures of the lead stars in their toy forms.

Release dates of the “Ghostbusters” LEGO set and Mattel’s figures were not announced yet.
