27th July 2021
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.
