Sony Pictures teamed up with the NBA for the below “Ghostbusters”-themed promo for the upcoming all-woman report that stars stars Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon.

The NBA promo features Spike Lee, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, Walter “Clyde” Frazier, and Kristaps Porziņģis all suiting up as Ghostbusters and take out some creepies.




Now this is a “Ghostbusters” movie that I’d see… well… actually… maybe not. But I’m sure these guys had a lot of fun making it.

Directed by Paul Feig, the reboot hits theaters on July 22, 2016.

Ernie Hudson, star of the original “Ghostbusters” movies, will appear in Sony’s upcoming all-female reboot, joining fellow returning “Ghostbusters” stars Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, all likely reprising their roles from the original franchise, maybe as a kind of “hand-off” to the all-woman team.

Watch Spike Lee and Kobe in the promo below, and then watch a new trailer for the upcoming movie.
