Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Director Jason Reitman, son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, brings a true sequel to Ghostbusters to the screen and hits the top of the global box office on its debut week of release with $60 Million from 32 countries.

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.

Marvels latest movie falls to number 2 after 2 weeks at the top with a weekend gross of $33.5 Million from 50 countries on its third weekend of release, a 56% drop over last weekend.

This gives the movie a global total of $336.1 Million over its 3 weeks making it the 10th top movie of 2021.

This gives the movie a total global gross of $20.3 Million after 2 weeks of release.

The Door Lock

Again released only in China this drama from director Orkenbek Baysenbay makes its debut with $19.9 Million and is the fourth top movie of the weekend.

No Time to Die

The James Bond movie starring Daniel Craig falls to number 5 this week from number 2 with a weekend gross of $16.1 Million from 73 countries, a resonable 44% drop over last weekend.

Despite the large drop on he box office the movie has taken $734 Million over its 8 weeks of release and is the 3rd top movie globally of 2021.

the movie does pass a big milestone this weekend, is is the highest grossing English speaking movie of 2021 overtaking Fast & Furious 9 and is only behind the massive Chinese blockbusters of Hi, Mom at number 2 and The Battle At Lake Changjin which is the top movie of the year.

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.
