Get your proton packs and PKE metres ready because Ghostbusters is coming back.
Jason Reitman, son of original director Ivan Reitman, is directing Ghostbusters: Afterlife, set for release 40 years after the first movie in the franchise came out.
It’s been a long wait, plus an added two and a half years since Reitman announced the making of the movie, but now the wait is almost over.
The only thing is, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, like a naughty teenager trying to distance themselves from their parents, is quite different to what fans might be used to.
The fact that the classic theme song by Ray Parker Jr. doesn’t feature for even a second in the trailer is a big telltale.
And while the original cast, like Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, and Ernie Hudson are all expected to return, there’s a new family on board.
That includes Leftovers’ Carrie Coon, Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard, and The Haunting of Hill House’s Mckenna Grace.
It appears as though Ghostbusters is speaking to a whole new generation now.
Here’s the plot from Gizmodo:
The film’s crew consists of Callie (Coon), who is the mother of Phoebe (Grace) and Trevor (Wolfhard) and the kids’ teacher Mr. Grooberson (Ant-Man himself, Paul Rudd) who just so happens to be a big fan of a few guys in tan jumpsuits who were running around New York City in the 1980s named Venkman, Stanz, Spengler, and Zeddemore.
Trevor and Phoebe befriend a few classmates when they move to a new town: Podcast (Logan Kim) and Lucky (Celeste O’Connor) and all of them get into some crazy, Ghostbusters stuff.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be in theatres from November 11.
