We recently found out that the new Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 sequel from director Jason Reitman had been officially titled Ghostbusters: Afterlife. The title works perfectly as both a reference to the supernatural spirits that run amok throughout the franchise, and also the new attempt to revive the series following decades without a new sequel and an unsuccessful remake. We were also informed that the trailer was imminent, and now we have the release date and a slew of new images to hold us over. Check out the first look at Ghostbusters: Afterlife down below!
Director Jason Reitman explained to Vanity Fair a little more about the images, which gave some more context to the images. And it definitely sounds like a great attempt at expanding the characters and storylines of the original films.
“As the family arrives at an old farm, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters. Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) and Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) are about to find out who their grandfather was and whether they’re ready to pick up the proton pack themselves.”
The new trailer is set to premiere on Monday, December 9. Hopefully it does a great job at rekindling the spirit of the original films. After the recent remake, I’m sure we could all use something a little more heartfelt and passionate about the franchise’s name.
In Ghostbusters: Afterlife…
“The new film centers on a family that moves back home to a small town where they learn more about who they are.”
The film stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts, along with Paul Rudd, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Carrie Coon, Oliver Cooper, Celeste O’Connor and Logan Kim.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife hits theaters on July 10, 2020.
