It feels like it’s been forever since we saw a trailer for the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Well, actually it has been about a year and a half now. So, close enough.
Today we finally get a new trailer looking at the movie. It was supposed to release last summer, but yet again COVID showed up and ruined everything for everyone.
Here’s the new trailer:
Ghostbusters: Afterlife picks up roughly 30 years after the Statue of Liberty somehow walked in Ghostbusters II.
When a single mother and her two children move to a new town, they soon discover that they have a connection to the original Ghostbusters and their grandfather’s secret legacy.
The movie is directed by Jason Reitman, who has helmed such movies as Thank You for Smoking, Juno, Up in the Air, Young Adult, and The Front Runner. The script was penned Reitman and Gil Kenan, director of Monster House, City of Ember and the Poltergeist remake.
Maybe not the greatest list of movies, but not bad. Also Reitman gives fans hope with this sequel, because his father is Ivan Reitman, the director of the original Ghostbusters. He’s also credited as a producer for Afterlife.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is going to weigh heavy on Reitman’s shoulders after the debacle that was 2016 (I’ll say no more). Being he grew up around the actors, the sets, and the filming of the original, maybe it will lend a hand. It’ll be a test if he can tap into the magic that made the original a classic.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is set to finally release in theaters on November 11, 2021.
