The movie has has a mixed reception from critics but audiences seem to love the return of the franchise and it has hot the top spot in most of the countries it has been released in.

The movie has some very stiff competition going forward, but for now this return of the beloved franchise has hit the right mark and will probably green light another in the franchise.

BBFC movie page

Sony have released a new trailer for the Jason Reitman directed Ghostbusters: Afterlife which hit all Ghostbusters fans over the head with the nostalgia stick.

The first thing you notice about this trailer is the serious and horror tone of the movie, I know the originals were horror comedies, but this seems more like a Stranger Things style horror movie.

But saying that it looks like its going to be a lot of fun and the new kids do a great job of stepping into the Ghostbusters shoes.

As for the nostalgia, Annie Potts' Janine Melnitz turns up to give some wisdom about why Dr. Egon Spengler moved to a small American town, I hope she has a bigger role than the trailer suggest.

Also we see plenty of the old Ghostbusters equipment, a photo of the 4 originals, and the advert from the original movie plays throughout, and we get to see Paul Rudd have a strange Stay Puff Marshmallow Man experience in a supermarket!

Then in the end we get to see what is presumably Dr. Raymond Stantz, who seems to have the same phone number used in the original movie.

The movie gets a release on 12th November in the UK and a day eariler in America.

As promised the first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife is released and the ties to the original films are strong.

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.
