Ghostbusters: Afterlife Trailer

"Call it fate. Call it luck. Call it karma… I believe that everything happens for a reason." Sony Pictures has unveiled the first official trailer for Jason Reitman's Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the next continuation of the original Ghostbusters series. This one is actually a direct sequel to the first two movies (from 1984 & 1989) and brings back the classic Ecto-1 and some of the original actors. Ghostbusters: Afterlife is set in a small town, where a group of kids and a teacher discover various connections to the original Ghostbusters from 30 years ago. The main cast includes Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, and Paul Rudd; also featuring Bill Murray, Annie Potts, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Bokeem Woodbine, and Ernie Hudson. This plays like more of an introductory teaser, without showing any of the old cast, while reintroducing the Ecto-1 and all the new people. And it looks great! Especially when that siren noise drops.

Here's the first real trailer (+ poster) for Jason Reitman's new Ghostbusters: Afterlife, from YouTube:

You can still watch the first announcement teaser for the new Ghostbusters here, to see the original reveal.

Everything happens for a reason… In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, 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. The new Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie is directed by Canadian filmmaker Jason Reitman, director of the films Thank You for Smoking, Juno, Up in the Air, Young Adult, Labor Day, Men Women & Children, Tully, and The Front Runner previously. The screenplay is written by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan. Produced by Ivan Reitman. Sony will release Reitman's Ghostbusters: Afterlife in theaters everywhere starting July 10th, 2020 next summer. First impression? Excited to see this already?

I'm getting Goonies vibe from this, which is a great direction to go.

Anyone else see slimer? Interesting take...Ghostbusters meets Stranger Things meets It via 80s Goonies type vibes. Looks interesting.

Reshuffling things with franchises these days gives unusual results. So, moving things to dirty old town ...

Looking good. But how the hell would these kids not know about the Ghostbusters? I'm pretty sure the crazy shit that happened in those movies would have been taught in school as some of the most significant events in human history. I hope they explain that. But if not, screw it, still looks fun. Crossing my fingers for a Rick Moranis cameo.

Feels like what JJ is doing with the CLOVERFIELD franchise...and that's a good thing.

Am I the only one here who got a Transformers vibe from the first half of the trailer? (At least from the Whalberg-era ones) Opening shots of farm country, kid(s) rummaging through old barn, mysterious items covered in a dusty tarp...

crossing my fingers for a CGI Spengler as a spirit cameo. (Tho Im wondering if Jason would cross that line out of respect)

Hmmm. Not the quiet the tone, setting or characters I was anticipating. This actually looks somewhat decent.
