The Ectoplasm hits the fan in ‘GHOSTBUSTERS: Afterlife’ directed by Jason Reitman


When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.

Columbia Pictures’ long anticipated trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2020), after much buzz about it over the weekend on the Internet and fan blogs, has hit big time! And while much of the original cast has been rumored to bet part of the third film (sans Harold Ramis who passed away in 2014), Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver or Annie Potts are nowhere to be seen in the full trailer.

In place we have an eager cast of young fitting faces: Mckenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard (think ‘Stranger Things‘ meets ‘Super 8‘). Plus, Carrie Coon and Paul Rudd.

The third in the series finds Jason Reitman, the son of series director Ivan Reitman at the helm following up on the legacy. Reitman senior is in the producer’s eat this go around. The 2020 film is written by Gil Kenan & Jason Reitmanm, while the 1984 classic was penned by comedy legends Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. Did we mention that Ecto-1 is back?

Enough talk. Peep the goods below.

As fans of the original film and franchise, and given today’s digital accomplishments and improvements, it would really be something to have the Egon Spangler character make an appearance of some kind. Hey, we’re just talkin’ tip-of-the-hat homage, here… 😉

Ghostbusters: Afterlife hits theaters in wide release on July 10, 2020.
