Following up on the first trailer, the second trailer for “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” — which is directed by Jason Reitman, son of Ivan, who helmed the original film — focuses on single mom Callie (Carrie Coon) and her kids Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) and Trevor (“Stranger Things” and “It” star Finn Wolfhard), who end up relocating to a small town in Oklahoma after suffering some serious financial setbacks. Worried about Phoebe’s social anxiety, Callie consults with Paul Rudd’s Mr. Grooberson, telling him that even though the move feels like an “opportunity to start over,” she kind of hopes her kids can track down some trouble in Summerville.
Clearly, Callie’s wish is granted sooner rather than later, as Trevor and Phoebe end up finding out their late grandfather, who left them their new run-down farmhouse, shared some history with the original Ghostbusters gang. Clearly, the film will contain a ton of references to the original, especially since Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson will reprise their roles (leaving out Rick Moranis, who has retired from acting, and the late Harold Ramis).
“Ghostbusters: Afterlife” will finally hit theaters on November 11, 2021.
