Trailer for Ghostbusters Afterlife Film

I found this trailer for the forthcoming Ghostbuster’s sequel, Ghostbusters Afterlife, on the Sony Pictures Releasing UK channel on YouTube. I saw the original film when it came out all that time ago in the early 1980s and was blown away by it. It’s one of the great fantasy comedies of the late 20th century, and I think it’s amazing that it’s still inspiring sequels 30 or so years later. The plot seems to be that the grandchildren of the original ghostbusters discover their grandparents’ old equipment as their town in rural America comes under threat from the denizens of the afterlife. And once again apocalypse looms. There’s certainly a nod to the original movie in some of the creatures as well. In the original film, the Destroyer appears as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. And there’s a scene in this trailer where a bag of marshmallows in the local store come to life as miniature versions of the figure. I think there’s some jealousy surrounding this film already, as there was an all-female version of Ghostbusters that come out in 2016 and flopped. It was criticised for not being very good, and actually unfunny and coarse. This looks much better. Apparently it’s coming out November 18, so that’s another film I’d like to see provided we’re not stuck in a second lockdown.

    I didn’t know they were making a sequel. I saw the original at the cinema when it came out back in the 80s, seems like a lifetime ago, I went with my (then young, now ex) wife, I remember that we gulped down a few beers first in the pub right next door to the cinema. The pub is no longer open and the cinema is derelict now. Good film though.

      I was at school at the time, Trev and went with my brother and a friend. We’re a bit more fortunate in that the cinema’s still open. It’s bar’s supposedly haunted following the murder of a cinema manager there a long time ago.
