The hype for the forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot has increased significantly with each generous revelation from director Paul Feig's Twitter. Having successfully mastered the art of inventing Ghostbusters-themed hashtags (most of them a play on Ray Parker Jr.'s theme song from the original 1984 film), Feig has — over the span of a few weeks — unveiled the new uniforms, new proton packs, and now the new Ecto-1.
