Directed by Jason Reitman and starring Paul Rudd, Finn Wolfhard and Mckenna Grace the new trailer isn't what we were expecting and all the action takes place in a sleepy American town rather than New York as all previous films have, does that mean the famous fire station is not in the movie?
Its strongly hinted that the young lad in the trailer is Egon Spangler's (played by Harold Ramis in the original movies and sadly passed away in 2014) grandchild and he and his mother have come to the small town to sort out his grandfathers stuff.
It wouldn't be a Ghostbusters movie without ghosts and once the kids start to look into what his grandfather did they start to uncover equipment and the afterlife starts to rise again.
Paul Rudd also appears in the trailer and seems to be the only one who knows who the Ghostbusters were and recognises a ghost trap when presented, and it seems the trap might be full!
The movie of out in June of 2020, and judging by this is could be worth the wait.

The follow up to 2014's hit film The Lego Movie makes its debut on the UK box offie this weekend although the 5 year gap has not been kind to the little brick movie.
Opening to a £4 million debut weekend the second lego movie has taken half that of the opening weekend of the first movie in the series.
It been 5 years since that movie caused a storm and despite the humour being very similar and the film generally getting good reviews The Batman Lego Movie and The Lego Ninjago Movie were not well received and may have damaged the brands reputation.
Heavily hyped as 'from producer James Cameron' and 'directed by Robert Rodriguez' this live action Japanese cyberpunk manga hits the UK box office at number 2.
Taking £3.1 million on its debut its in the same ball park but a little below Ghost In The Shell from 2017 which had bigger star appeal but reviews weren't as good.
A single week at the top for the threequel dragon movie as it falls to number 3 this week with £2.7 million and a £9 million total after 10 days of release.
Falling to number 4 on its second week of release the drama starring Viggo Mortensen takes just over a million to boost its 10 day total to £3.6 million.
Loosing steam fast now is the James McAvoy starring film which falls to 5 this week with £560,579 push its total just £9.6 million, it will go over the £10 million mark by next weekend.
The disney film continues to be the top film so far of 2019 with a gross of £20 million although its total gross is £43 million.
The big BAFTA winning film is still the top film of the year for films released in 2019 with a £14.6 million total gross and is this week at number 13.
