‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Trailer: Bustin’ Still Makes Us Feel Good
[Extreme Dan Aykroyd in Ghostbusters II voice] “We’re back!”
Yes, the Ghostbusters — the original franchise, not the all-female reboot from a few years ago — is back, although their appearances in the new trailer are limited to some familiar costumes, props and one recycled line from Bill Murray from the first film about destiny and karma. Instead, a new cast, primarily a single mom and her two kids, gotta gotta gotta take control, when they inherit an old farmhouse and find it stocked with old ghost busting artifacts.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
From director Jason Reitman and producer Ivan Reitman, comes the next chapter in the original Ghostbusters universe. In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, 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. The film is written by Jason Reitman & Gil Kenan.
The mood of reverence and awe at the old Ghostbusters stuff is basically the exact opposite of the original film, was all about how the characters were schlubs and weirdos who constantly cracked jokes. Still, pretty cool to see a new batch of spores, mold, and fungus! Ghostbusters: Afterlife opens in theaters on July 10, 2020.
