After confirming that the film Ghostbusters: Afterlife to hit theaters this fall after a series of COVID-19-related delays, Sony Pictures is now working to boost fan enthusiasm with the release of two cool posters highlighting the “new team” alongside the franchise’s iconic vehicle, the Ecto-1.

The first poster, featuring the iconic Ghostbusters logo, highlights the main cast such as Paul Rudd and Finn Wolfhard. The two are seen along with Mckenna Grace, Logan Kim, and Celeste O’Connor, who are standing around a rusty car in the middle of a cornfield, with an eerie blue-green storm rising above them.

Whereas in the second poster, they are much more focused on the destruction brought to the city, and show the group still gathering around Ecto-1, but this time with a rear view. They were staring at the same blue-green storm that was now shooting colorful lightning bolts over the small town of Summerville.

Set thirty years after Ghostbusters II (1989), Ghostbusters: Afterlife follows the story of a family who moves to a small town, where they discover their connection to the ghost “exterminator” team from the first film. After being evicted from their home, two children and their single mother move to a ranch in Summerville, Oklahoma, which was inherited by their late grandfather. When the city experiences a series of unexplained earthquakes, they discover their family connection to the original Ghostbusters, which has become something of a myth because many have long forgotten the events of “Manhattan in 1984.”

Ghostbusters: Afterlife starring Finn Wolfhard as Trevor, Mckenna Grace as Phoebe and Paul Rudd as Mr. Grooberson and Carrie Coon as Callie. The sequel will also feature Dan Aykroyd as Ray Stantz, Ernie Hudson as Winston Zeddemore, and Bill Murray as Peter Venkman, as Dana Barrett and Annie Potts as Janine Melnitz reprising their roles in the franchise.

The sequel is directed by Jason Reitman (Juno, Young Adult, Tully) from a screenplay he co-wrote with Gil Kenan (Monster House, Poltergeist). Reitman has officially taken over as director from his father Ivan Reitman who directed the first two films and is now a producer.

As we know, studios are now more confident to release their films in theaters after the success Shang-Chi. It caused Sony to move Venom: Let There Be Carnage to an earlier release date and now the film will be widely released on November 19, 2021.
