“Something’s coming!” Ghostbusters: Afterlife, directed by Canadian filmmaker, Jason Reitman, will be coming to theaters this November 11th. After the original film was released almost three decades ago, the next sequel of the hit supernatural comedy franchise following Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II is introduced in Sony Pictures’ Ghostbusters: Afterlife Official Trailer 2. It has been a long road to the big screen for Ghostbusters: Afterlife largely due to the pandemic. The first trailer debuted all the way back in December of 2019 when the film was set for a July 2020 release date. But fans will be relieved to know that in a few short months, they will be seeing this hotly anticipated film first hand.
We see in the trailer that Ghostbusters: Afterlife is definitely closely tied to the mythology of the original two Ghostbusters films directed by Ivan Reitman, father of Jason. The trailer makes clear what was only implied by the earlier trailers: The new family in the film — mom Carrie Coon and children Mckenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard — are Egon Spengler’s daughter and grandkids. He left them a spooky old farmhouse, and once they move in and discover Ecto-1, all kinds of ghostbusting-related stuff begins to happen. Jason Reitman, who co-wrote the sequel with Monster House director Gil Kenan, promised a bunch of surprises for the trademark Ghostbusters vehicle: Ecto-1. “It’s really cool,” he said. “There’s a lot of cool things, a lot of surprises you still don’t know about this car. And it was so much fun to shoot because we put a crazy new engine in it and we have it doing things that you’d never believe Ecto-1 could do.” Much to the delight of fans, Ghostbusters: Afterlife brings back original Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts who reprise their roles.
