Sony Pictures has just revealed the final trailer of the film Ghostbusters: Afterlife which will be released in theaters on November 19th. In this new promo Sony is highlighting a new aspect of the classic paranormal story by revealing its main stars; Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, and Carrie Coon take over the “roles” as a new generation of ghost hunters.
The final trailer also gives a glimpse of some of the classic Ghostbusters creatures that return to haunt the franchise’s new protagonists, including a newer Slimer look and more footage of the little marshmallow man Stay Puft confusing Paul Rudd’s Chad Grooberson. Also returning, seen for the first time are Terror Dogs, ferocious hellhounds who appeared as Gozer’s minions in the first Ghostbusters film and now apparently, are chasing Chad through the ruins of a Walmart.
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.
