As well as an official description of the film:

“From director Jason Reitman and producer Ivan Reitman, comes the next chapter in the original Ghostbusters universe.

Aykroyd praised the script back in May and teased the movie would feature “some familiar faces.”

“Ivan Reitman’s son Jason has written a beautiful script, I can’t say too much about it but it’s going to get made and hopefully there’ll be some familiar faces….”

He added:

“It’s so different from even the first and second (film)…. This just takes it to a new generation and a new direction that is so warm, heartfelt and indeed, quite scary when you confront some of the issues that are being discussed.”

What do you make of this first Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer? Do you plan on seeing the movie in theaters?
