Back in late 2019, we got our first glimpse of an upcoming Ghostbusters movie. Though, not long after, the COVID-19 pandemic reared its ugly head, resulting in Sony Pictures pushing back the film’s release no less than three times. Now, it’s over a year later and Ghostbusters: Afterlife is finally poised to hit cinemas, including RealD 3D theaters.

Set three decades after the second installment of the popular 1980s film franchise, this new film was co-written and directed by Jason Reitman, who is the son of Ivan Reitman, the director of the original 1984 Ghostbusters flick. The movie centers around a single mom and her teenage daughter and son (Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things fame) moving to a property once owned by their grandpa in a small town in Oklahoma, though not long after settling in the family starts coming across 1980s-era ghost-hunting equipment. After spirits and the dead start rising, the young protagonists’ teacher (Paul Rudd) helps educate the teens on all-things-Ghostbusters in a bid to fight back. In addition to featuring the iconic 1959 Cadillac Ecto-1 vehicle, the upcoming installment also stars the original 1984 trio in the form of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson. Expected to be one of the year’s most anticipated films, Sony Pictures’ Ghostbusters: Afterlife will hit theaters on November 11, 2021.
