Looking ahead to Monday’s trailer release, Vanity Fair has shared these four first look stills from Ghostbusters: Afterlife. The trade has seemingly also confirmed the rumours of the film’s spooky title.
Director Jason Reitman described the latest sequel as “a new adventure that connects back to the Manhattan Crossrip of 1984.”
“Manhattan Crossrip” is the technical term for that long-ago bizarre incident in New York involving an apocalypse-summoning skyscraper, a gargantuan killer marshmallow man, and four working stiffs who managed to fight back against an ancient Sumerian God named Gozer.
The film centres around The Leftovers’ Carrie Coon starring as mom Callie, I, Tonya’s Mckenna Grace as her science-obsessed daughter Phoebe, and Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard as gearhead son Trevor. They have left everything they know and moved to a small town in Oklahoma after inheriting property from the father she didn’t know.
“As the family arrives at an old farm, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters,” Reitman said. “Trevor and Phoebe are about to find out who their grandfather was and whether they’re ready to pick up the proton pack themselves.”
Be sure to come back Monday to check out the first trailer!
Ghostbusters 2020 is set to star Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd, Bokeem Woodbine, Celeste O’Connor and Mckenna Grace. The movie is scheduled for release on July 20, 2020.
