Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for its fourth installment of Ghostbusters and the direct sequel to 1989’s Ghostbusters II, Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Directed by Jason Reitman (the son of Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two Ghostbusters films), Ghostbusters: Afterlife centers around what’s alluded to be Egon Spengler’s daughter and grandchildren as they move out to a farmhouse in Summerville, Oklahoma that unsurprisingly turns out to be a site for supernatural activity. The trailer is notable in that it reintroduces Annie Potts’ character from the originals, Ghostbusters secretary Janine Melnitz. The mysterious person at the end picking up a red phone is also speculated to be Ray Stantz.

After being evicted from their home, a single mother and her two children are forced to move to a decayed farmhouse in Summerville, Oklahoma, left to them by the children’s late grandfather, where a series of unexplained earthquakes are occurring despite not being situated on any fault and strange things are happening in an old mine once belonged to the alleged occultist Ivo Shandor. The children discover their grandfather’s history with the original Ghostbusters, who have since been largely forgotten by the world beyond their fan base.

  1. Ok, I think this might actually stand a chance. Who knows, Stranger Things have happened… 😉 😉

  2. After all these decades it sure would be nice if this franchise could get a proper revival.

    This is a SQL to Ghostbusters II. Not anything after that. Geezus I can’t even type Sequel any more… it comes out SQL. lol. Maybe I need a vacation…

  6. Lol, I was just rubbing salt in that wound. Nobody wants that travesty back. This one looks to have some decent potential
