Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Devastates London’s Waterloo Station During Rush-Hour
Movies| | By Jason Owen
To mark the premiere of the all-female Ghostbusters reboot opening in England on Monday, Sony Pictures invaded Waterloo Station in central London with an eye-popping display of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man barging through the floor of the London Underground terminal.
The new movie has come under intense scrutiny ahead of its premiere, with many disparaging the film and the all-female leads way before the movie even premiered. But now, with the U.S. release set for this weekend, July 15, critical reviews have started to come in and the movie is receiving a mostly positive response.
Film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 78/100 saying, “Ghostbusters does an impressive job of standing on its own as a freewheeling, marvelously cast supernatural comedy – even if it can’t help but pale somewhat in comparison with the classic original.”
The film stars Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, and Leslie Jones as the new Ghostbusters for the 21st century, along with Chris Hemsworth as their new, lovable secretary. Many of stars of the original are also said to have cameo appearances in the new reboot.
Along with the Stay Puft invasion of Waterloo Station, Metro UK notes the London tube map was also revamped to honor the film’s premiere as subway lines were redrawn in the shape of the Ghostbusters logo. Check out more of the images below.
