The first trailer for the much anticipated Ghostbusters 3, now officially called Ghostbusters: Afterlife, will get its first showing Monday December 9th.

Sony Pictures

After the bad box office performance of the last all female led Ghostbusters the studio have changed direction with the series, and the new movie will see Ghostbusters of male and female and kids.

The movie is directed by Jason Reitman, son of the original director Ivan, and the cast includes the likes of Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon and Mckenna Grace.

Its also being hailed as a true sequel to 1989's Ghostbusters II, unlike the 2016 movie which was apparently set in a parallel universe, and as more of a reboot.

The new movie is out summer of 2020 and the anticipation, and fear, for the new movie is increasing.

Also check out the first real teaser poster to the left.

Vanity fair has been given the first look images which you can check out in the tweet below, but just check out Paul Rudd with the original style trap, fantastic!

Despite the positive reaction to the 2016 Ghostbustes reboot the film did not do well at the box office and the studio lost faith in the series, but director Jason Reitman has just been confirmed to write and direct a new film in the franhise.

The director, son of Ivan who directed the originals, has a number of acclaimed films under his belt and has been a fan for as long as their have been Ghostbuster.

The film will be a direct sequel to 1989's Ghostbusters II and will have no connection to the 2016 female led movie by director Paul Feig.

We hope the reboot does get a sequel at some point as that was a good film despite he reviews and box office receipts, but a Ghostbusters movie in any form is a good thing and we look forward to this.

Summer of 2020 is the expected release date so not long to wait.

Paddington stays at the top of the UK box office for a second week leaving The Hunger Games in it's wake and leaving the highest new film to come in at three.

The children's favourite, which has had decent reviews, retains it's lead at the top with a second weekend of nearly £4 million, which brings it's 10 day gross to £10.3 million.

Staying at two is The Hunger Games, Mockingjay Part 1 now with a £25.2 million total gross.

Highest new film of the weekend is Penguins of Madagascar, entering at three with £1.6 million, the Madagascar spinoff film should hang around for the holidays to improve on it's gross.

Other new films this week: Get Santa at 7, St Vincent at 9, Black Sea at 10, The Pyramid at 11 and Men Women and Children at 14.
