Proton-packed and taking the supernatural world by storm, the Ghostbusters: Answer The Call Extended Edition stars the formidable comedic quartet of Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids), Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Joined by Chris Hemsworth (Thor), the reboot of the beloved 1984 comedy finds the four dynamic paranormal ass-kickers engaged in an epic battle in Manhattan as mischievous ghouls descend on Times Square.

Directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), the new Extended Edition of the comedy features more than 15 minutes of never-before-seen film footage.
