First Images Of Ghostbusters: Afterlife Have Arrived And It Looks Amazing
Once more the world is prepared to call upon the Ghostbusters to make busting feel good, as the first images have dropped from Jason Reitman's upcoming sequel/reboot of the beloved franchise, along with a release date for the long-awaited first trailer.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife sees he franchise returning to its roots, after Paul Feig's 2016 reboot of the series, which starred an all-female cast including Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kristen Wiig.
This time round Sony looks set to continue the legacy of the first two films.
Along with the son of original director Ivan Reitman taking the reins, Afterlife has also secured the services of the original cast as well, including Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts.
The only omission is Harold Ramis - the original movie's co-writer who starred as Egon Spengler in the original movie - who sadly passed away in 2014.
Along with the OG 'Busters, Reitman has also cast has also cast Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon and Mckenna Grace to lead his new picture, as well as Paul Rudd, who shared the news by tweeting: "Look who answered the call."
The trailer drops on Monday 9 December, but until then all we have to go off is this sweet poster, which depicts the Ecto-1 Ghostbusters car looking dilapidated in an empty field while some sort of cataclysmic supernatural event looms ominously in the background:
Filming wrapped up in November, and earlier this year Jason Reitman posted a picture of himself with the new cast members and his father on set.
At Calgary International Film Festival, the director said: "I want to make my dad proud and I want him to be proud of this film. I want him to be proud of me but I also want him to be proud of this thing that we're doing.
"I'm very aware of the legacy of this movie because I'm a huge fan. I spent summers much like many other young people in the '80s watching it every day. I'm in love with the movie and I feel a responsibility in picking it up."
With the first Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer set to drop this Monday, the film is set to debut in theatres on 10 July 2020.
