On 9th December 2019, Sony Pictures Entertainment released the official trailer for the upcoming supernatural comedy “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”. Written by Gil Kenan and Jason Reitman, the movie is the sequel to the first two parts of the Ghostbuster series. It will be the fourth part and is set 30 years after “Ghostbusters 2”. After the release of the 2nd movie, Dan Aykroyd, the writer of the series had an idea of creating an alternate universe with a group of younger ghostbusters.
However, not many seemed to like the idea. Later on, they released a video game in 2009 following this concept. In 2019, after several discussions, the project was put under development and began with casting. They began filming in July 2019 and in October 2019, they wrapped it. In 2019, Hasbro, the multinational toy company announced new toy figures of the characters of the movie promoting it among children.
What is the plot of “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”:
The plot will revolve around a family consisting of a single mother and her two children. They move to a farm after being evicted from their home. They inherit their grandfather’s property and plan on settling there. Later on, some unexplained earthquakes occur and the kids find their relationship with the original ghostbusters. There were always rumors but no one believed about the events of “Manhattan Crossrip of 1984”. It had another story coming. Their grandfather’s secrets start coming up and their adventures begin as they start unraveling the truth.
The movie consists of some really amazing and versatile cast. It stars Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd, Logan Kim, Celeste O’Connor, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, Oliver Cooper, Bokeem Woodbine, Marlon Kazadi, Sydney Mae Diaz, Tracy Letts, and J. K. Simmons. It is now scheduled to release on 11th June 2021. The new movie is releasing exactly 37 years after the first one’s release. The postponing of the dates for the movies has now become normal. Many believe that they won’t be able to make profits due to the pandemic.
