‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ trailer pays tribute to Egon Spengler

The first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife takes the spectral hunting out of the city and into a small town, where a family with surprising connections to the original Ghostbusters is forced to return to their roots and bust some rural ghosts. The main cast includes Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, and Paul Rudd; also featuring Bill Murray, Annie Potts, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Bokeem Woodbine, and Ernie Hudson. Harold Ramis passed away in 2014 (though one of the leads does appear to be Egon Spangler's grand daughter) and Rick Moranis has been mostly retired for a couple of decades.

When Phoebe brings to class what Grooberson calls a "replica" of a ghost trap, he teaches the kids about the history of the Ghostbusters, adding that there "hasn't been a ghost sighting in 30 years" - essentially writing off Paul Feig's negatively received, all-female, 2016 installment of the franchise. He was there when the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man terrorized Manhattan back in 1984 and is happy to educate Phoebe, Trevor and their pal (played by Logan Kim) about the past life of the Ghostbusters.

All seems to culminate with the kids driving around the infamous Ecto-1, shooting charges from a proton pack.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife, directed by Jason Reitman and produced by Ivan Reitman, presents the next chapter in the Ghostbusters series - and it's quite different from its predecessors. "I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans", Jason told Entertainment Weekly back in January when his participation in the film was announced. Are you excited to see how it follows up to the original films?

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is set for a July 10, 2020 release date.
