Los Angeles: The new trailer of forthcoming film Ghostbusters has addressed social issues like race and gender, reports

Ghostbusters seems to take on the race and gender issues amid controversies that arose regarding the all-female cast and actress Leslie Jones' "street-smart" role which some fans called a racist stereotype.

"I don't know if it was a race thing or a lady thing, but I'm mad as hell," said Leslie who plays the role of Patty Tolan in the movie.

The trailer also gives a sneak peek at actor Chris Hemsworth. The actor is seen applying for the job of the ladies' receptionist and pitching logos for their business. (Also Read: Ghostbusters Trailer #2: More Chris Hemsworth, More Laughs)
