Ghostbusters: Afterlife comes out in a couple of weeks and the Powers That Be released a short new trailer yesterday. I’m excited for this film, and normally I love watching trailers, but I have not watched this one. And I advise you to not watch it either. Apparently, it’s full of spoilers. DON’T WATCH THIS TRAILER.
Thankfully, other internet sites who have shared this trailer have watched it and revealed that it’s full of spoilers. So thankfully, I didn’t watch it and I haven’t had anything spoiled. Hopefully the same has happened to you.
Why then, you might ask, did I even bother to share this trailer if I haven’t seen it and don’t want you to see it? Because it’s just a random Tuesday, I need to be at work soon and I gotta put something up, right? I gotta keep the blog churning? Isn’t that how this works?!
Wait…is that…is that not how this works? Could I have elected not to post anything on this random Tuesday and nobody would have cared? That’s good advice, actually….
A new, international trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife arrived on our internets this weekend and gives us an even bigger look at the plot and adventures of this upcoming sequel. And I think the movie still looks fine. It could even be good!
My main takeaway from this trailer is: should Ecto-1 really be doing jumps like that? She’s old, and she’s not built for it. Maybe don’t make her do jumps like that!
Beyond that bit of teeth-gnashing fear for my favorite cinematic car of all time, the rest of the trailer looks good. There’s action, there’s mystery, there’s humor, there’s ghostbusting. I will probably be perfectly happy with this movie, and that’s really all I want from movies most of the time.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife comes out on Nov. 18.
Want proof? How about this really cool new trailer that arrived today? I gotta say, I watch a lot of trailers, and this one is a really good one. Well-made, well-paced, well-crafted; I like this trailer.
Now, will the movie be any good? Who can say! I liked the all-female reboot just fine. And I’m obviously a huge fan of BOTH originals. So let’s all get our hopes up that Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be a really fun jam.
Though we have to wait until Nov. 11 to see for sure.
I liked the recent, all-women Ghostbusters reboot. I understand a lot of criticism it received, but I was entertained while watching in the theater. But Hollywood and fandom are fickle, and now comes a proper Ghostbusters sequel, pegged as the long-awaited Ghostbusters 3!
But numbers aren’t chic anymore. Modern sequels are all about the subtitle! Behold, Ghostbusters: Afterlife!
I like it! I like the grounded, serious vibe. I like the mystery and the reverence. I like Paul Rudd. Is he going to become a Ghostbuster? That would be sweet. I’m a little surprised we didn’t get any original character cameos. Are those going to be smaller roles? Maybe they want the movie to stand on its right now right.
It definitely stands on its own in this first trailer! I liked it a lot.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife comes out on July 10.
I was a fan of the new Ghostbusters remake. A friend of mine was such a big fan that she’s seen it three times already! I don’t know the final numbers, but I would say it’s a relatively solid success and not the utter flop that the haters hoped for. I hope this means we’re looking at a new, revived Ghostbusters franchise.
So what comes next? A sequel, hopefully. Perhaps even a trilogy. The action figures are selling well, and I might pick up one or two myself. I’ve definitely got my eye on that new LEGO Ecto-1. And one hopes that Halloween will be huge this year for little girl Ghostbusters! Elsa and Frozen had their day!
I am totally on board with making this a big, awesome adventure. And there are a few things I’d like to see from the franchise going forward.
