Did you know Ghostbusters was a movie before Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth teamed up to battle baddies from beyond the grave? It’s TRUE! And that old 1980s movie will try to steal some thunder by returning to theaters this summer. It’s also called Ghostbusters!

Screen Crush reports the 1984 Ghostbusters, which apparently starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts, will hit 750 theaters nationwide on June 8 and June 12, with tickets going on sale on Fathom Events May 6th.

Below is the trailer, which doesn’t have enough women:

And here’s the official plot synopsis:

“Three former parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service.”

I don’t know. It doesn’t make my lions roar, so it’s probably not funny.
