Who you gonna call? That’s right, the Ghostbuster team is back again and judging by the brand new trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife it looks fantastic!
Starring in the brand new chapter of the Ghostbusters franchise is Paul Rudd, Fin Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace and Carrie Coon and fans of the original will be delighted to see that the legendary cast of Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts and Harold Ramis are returning to the cast once again.
Those of you who have you been aching to see how the new and old cast will work together will have to carry on waiting for a while though, as Murray and co don’t feature in the new trailer, but it does have an excellent mixture of nostalgic throwbacks and also an exciting new premise to reboot the franchise. It also shows Paul Rudd fanboying over old Ghostbusters equipment, so what’s not to love?
Check out the brand new trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife below.
Not much information has been released regarding Ghostbusters: Afterlife but we do know that it’ll be a direct sequel to the 80’s classics Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II.
The official synopsis states: “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”.
So it certainly sounds as though some of the original cast will feature a lot more than just brief cameos and as excited as fans are about the classic characters making a comeback, it will be interesting to see what direction the new cast take the film in.
Ghostbusters was originally released back in 1984 and became a cultural phenomenon and is still regarded as one of the most popular movies of all time. The success of the original meant that a sequel was inevitable, and in 1989, Ghostbusters II was released.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife isn’t the only time the franchise has been rebooted though. In 2016, Ghostbusters was brought back to the big screen with an all-female cast including Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones and despite the film making over $220 million worldwide, it was considered a flop.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife though, is considered to be the sequel to the original films from the ’80s and will see some of the original cast members reprise their roles for the first time. And we can’t wait for it!
Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be released in July 2020 by Sony Pictures.
