Ghostbusters 2016 reboots the classic 1980s Ghostbusters film series following a group of scientists who battle ghosts in New York City. The reboot, a third in the Ghostbusters series, was directed by Paul Feig using a screenplay he cowrote with Katie Dippold based on the original idea created by Ivan Reitman, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. Featuring an all-female cast, Ghostbusters 2016 owned in theaters on July 15, 2016.

In Ghostbusters 2016, paranormal enthusiasts Dr. Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) and Dr. Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and engineer Dr. Jillian Holtxmann (Kate McKinnon) are in the right place at the right time when a ghost invasion hits New York City. Knowing that they are the only ones with the expertise and courage to fight the ghosts, the trio forms the Ghostbusters.

But simply fighting ghosts isn't exactly an easy task so the crew expands. New Ghostbuster Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones) joins the team, and brings a company vehicle/hearse with her, while the Ghostbusters hire the handsome simpleton Kevin Beckman (Chris Hemsworth) as their receptionist. Together, the team must save New York City from these ghosts, including giving some love to the original films along the way.

Ghostbusters 2016 joined the summer 2016 movie lineup alongside Star Trek Beyond and The Secret Life of Pets, among others.
