A trailer for the new Ghostbusters movie has just dropped.

Titled Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the movie is the fourth instalment of the much loved series. Check it out:

And as well as it seeing Finn Wolfhard and Mckenna Grace reprise their roles as Egon's grandchildren Trevor and Phoebe, Carrie Coon is also back as Egon's daughter, Callie.

But perhaps more exciting for fans of the series, it also boasts a return of the remaining members of the original crew: Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, and Ernie Hudson, who also appeared in Afterlife.

While there's no official plot been released, by the looks of the trailer, New York is in for one hell of a cold snap, with a terrifying spirt descending on the city.

So frightening is this 'death chill' that it literally scares people stiff.

And in a situation like that, who you gonna call, right? (Sorry, I had to).

Joining the star-studded cast are newcomers to the franchise, Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, James Acaster and Emily Alyn Lind.

The long-awaited movie was written following the Afterlife reboot by Jason Reitman Gil Kenan and Aykroyd.

Speaking about the sequel previously, Kenan, who directed it, said: “It’s an absolute honor to pick up the proton pack and step behind the camera for the next chapter of the Spengler family saga.

"I just wish I could go back to 1984 and tell the kid in the sixth row of the Mann Valley West that one day he was going to get to direct a Ghostbusters film."

Since the trailer was released, fans of the franchise have been taking to social media to share their excitement.

"I was waiting for the sequel, and now we got it!!" wrote one seemingly happy customer.

Another commented: "This looks incredible. Afterlife brought us back to this world, Frozen Empire is pushing it forward into the future! This trailer ticks every box for me!!"

"Squee! I am so excited," put a third. "I saw the first Ghostbusters on my last day of high school in 1984.

"One of my favs ever since. After disappointing sequel and reboot, I LOVED Afterlife. This looks like it will be another awesome installment. Can’t wait!"

While someone else added: This looks even more amazing than I ever anticipated. This is what @JasonReitman was building towards with Ghostbusters: Afterlife... I couldn't be more excited! Can't wait for March 2024."
