Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer


Ghostbusters: Afterlife plot

Without giving away major spoilers, the basic premise is this. A single mother takes her two children and moves to a new town. There, they try to settle in and they soon form a bond with a friendly high school teacher, Mr Grooberson.

But, things start to get weirder than a limp handshake. And, as they try to make sense of it all, it comes to light that the kids have a very special grandfather. Ready? It’s one of the original Ghostbusters.

We don’t want to get our hopes up. But, the trailer did tease that the original Ghostbusters might just be back to lend a hand getting rid of the evil that’s been unleashed on that small town. Plus, we were egged on by the cast reveal, which we’ll get to now!

The film will centre on a family played by three rising stars. Carrie Coon will star as the single mother we mentioned, and you may recognise her from Fargo, Gone Girl, and as the less-recognisable Proxima Midnight in Avengers: Infinity War.

Her kids will be played by McKenna Grace, who played the young Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, and Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things. From the trailers and from word on the street, we’re pretty sure these three actors play the family of Egon Spengler, who, very sadly, won’t be returning as the actor, Harold Ramis, passed away in 2014.

But, we’re told he will be respectfully honoured in the film. And, so that it doesn’t get too sad, we can always count on the comedic stylings of Paul Rudd, who’ll be playing Mr Grooberson.

As for the original cast, we know Sigourney Weaver is returning as Annie Potts. And, she let slip that the surviving original Ghostbusters will be returning. So, we’re expecting to see Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson strap on their proton packs once more.

But, they’ve been very secretive over how much of the film they’re actually in, so it could be for significant roles or just amazing cameos. We’ll take whatever we can get.


Ghostbusters: Afterlife release date UK

Ghostbusters: Afterlife will release in the UK on 18 November 2021.
