One of the classic franchises of contemporary cinema will return to theatres. This is Ghostbusters: Afterlife, a sequel to the productions that delighted many moviegoers during the eighties.
As November approaches, the illusion regarding Ghostbusters: Afterlife also grows. This film is a sequel to the legendary franchise that began to captivate fans in 1984. So many years after its premiere, it is in the history of cinema as a cult saga that transcended the movie theatres to become a kind of pop icon.
This is the second preview of Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Remember that this movie was scheduled for last year. However, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented it from being released. Why has it taken so long? One possible explanation may be the search for a more significant impact in movie theatres. When it comes to Ghostbusters, keep in mind that it is a classic that involves different generations.
On the other hand, the wide cast that Ghostbusters: Afterlife involves suggests to the production: although it is a sequel, incorporating several prominent faces in recent years invites us to think that it is a way to reach other fans interested in paranormal situations.

They will be joined by Paul Rudd (Mr Grooberson) and Carrie Coon (Callie), the mother mentioned above. Spengler’s grandchildren who will appear in the story will be played by Finn Wolfhard, recognized for his role in Stranger Things, and McKenna Grace, who has already participated in productions such as Captain Marvel. They will act as Trevor and Phoebe in Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be released on November 10, 2021. The film is directed by Jason Reitman and produced by Ivan Reitman.
