The Ghostbusters Afterlife Trailer Makes Social Justice Warriors Cry


Sony has released its first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife. The film takes place in the same universe as the 1984 original and its 1989 sequel. Original Ghostbusters stars Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson have confirmed they will appear in the new movie. Watch the trailer here:




While most fans were delighted, some “journalists” with blue-checks, and other fans of the 2016 film weren’t very happy about it.







The film stars Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon and Paul Rudd, while Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts reprise their roles from the original films. It is the direct sequel to Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989) and the fourth film, overall, in the Ghostbusters franchise. Set 30 years after Ghostbusters II, the story follows a family moving to a small town, where they learn more about who they are and the secrets of the town itself.


A third Ghostbusters film had been in various stages of development since Ghostbusters II in 1989. After Murray refused to commit to the project, and after the death of cast member Harold Ramis in 2014, Sony instead produced a reboot film. After the 2016 Ghostbusters underperformed at the box office, Reitman began developing a direct sequel to the original films. The new cast members were announced by July 2019, while the members from the original films signed on two months later.
