The week’s openings: Ghosts and drugbusters

Dan Webster

No official word yet from the local theaters, but the week's major mainstream releases are as follows:

"Ghostbusters": Newly revised, with the likes of Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig taking over for Bill Murray and co., this adaptation of the original story about scientists using technology to oust troublesome spirits looks to be another in a long line of CGI-enhanced comedies. Turns out Saturday Night Live alumni still do have post-SNL careers.

"The Infiltrator" (Wednesday): The ubiquitous Bryan Cranston stars as one of the U.S. government agents whose undercover work helped bring down Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. Que pena.

I'll update as more information becomes available.
