The Ghostbusters car is in Leicester Square


The producers of the new ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot have switched the heroes’ genders, updated the special effects and dreamed up a whole new doomsday scenario. But there’s one thing they haven't dared mess with – the car. Based on the original ‘Ecto-1’ Cadillac from the 1984 comedy classic, the ghostbusters’ Cadillac from the forthcoming blockbuster movie is a 3-ton whopper emblazoned with the iconic ‘friendly ghost’ logo. And now you can check it out for yourself. A perfect replica of the car will be parked up in the lobby of the Odeon Leicester Square for the next four days (in a move that would’ve pleased Michael Caine, they had to take the doors off the cinema to get it inside). Sadly, you can't get in and take it for a spin, but head down and admire Ecto-1 this week, before the film opens in UK cinemas on July 11.
