This 2016 reboot is one of the worst in cinema history. You can't beat the original Ghostbusters from 1984.

News from around the web

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.

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

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!

It broke yesterday by entertainment magazine Entertainment Weekly that Jason Rietman would direct a new Ghostbusters movie, or Ghostbusters 3.

Today the publication has a teaser video for the new film, which is due summer of 2020.

Nothing more is known about the film, but judging by the footage, and a tweet from the director, Ecto 1 will feature in the movie.

Check out the teaser below.


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.
