Final ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Trailer Teases the Return of (Most of) the Original Team

Sony Pictures

The final trailer has arrived for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which has been delayed multiple times thanks to this damn pandemic. 

Well, not long now until we’re finally able to see it. Sony has unveiled a quick-but-doozy of a final trailer ahead of the film’s release, giving fans a tease of the return of the original Ghostbusters team – at least most them (Harold Ramis, who passed in 2014, likely won’t be appearing – although we’ll see if some CG magic is used). It’s been confirmed that Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson return. “Hey, have you missed us?” Yes, we have.

The new film is a follow-up to 1989 sequel Ghostbusters II (seemingly ignoring 2016’s Melissa McCarthy-starring Ghostbusters) and follows a single mum (Carrie Coon) and her two kids (Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace) as they discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind. Callie, you see, is the daughter of Ramis’ Dr. Egon Spengler from the first two films. Paul Rudd also stars, playing local teacher Mr. Grooberson.

Mostly positive reviews so far for this one. At the time of writing, Ghostbusters: Afterflie has a 71% score on Rotten Tomatoes with 45 reviews and a 61 Metascore with 14 reviews.

Directed and co-written by Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air), son of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II director Ivan Reitman, Ghostbusters: Afterlife will finally be hitting U.S. cinemas on November 19th and Australian cinemas on New Year’s Day.
