Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer: Paul Rudd is dealing with a haunted farm - who's he gonna call?
For years the idea of a third Ghostbusters film was banded around, with original cast members opting out and (for some reason) many insisting that Ivan Reitman return from the wilderness to bring it all together. The all-female Ghostbusters wasn’t as bad as it was made out to be and now the arrival of Ghostbusters: Afterlife sees Ivan’s son, Jason, helming the film (with Ivan taking on the role of producer). Given the failures of a number existing IPs at the box office, you have to wonder about the appetite for this film after so long away from our screens. But for those of a certain age it will bring back a lot of good memories, so hopefully the third film does the previous two justice. Time will tell, as always. Watch the first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, when a single mum 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.
Original cast members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts all return, with Paul Rudd, McKenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Celeste O'Connor, Logan Kim, Bookeem Woodbine and Oliver Cooper also in the cast. It's unlikely we'll see Rick Moranis, as he turned down a part in the 2016 reboot and has scaled back his appearances since the mid-90s.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is expected to arrive in cinemas on July 10, 2020.
