The trailer for the Ghostbusters Afterlife movie shot in Canada is here and people are freaking out
The highly-anticipated upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie was filmed in a tiny town just 170 kilometres south of Calgary, and now Canadians finally get to see what it looks like in the newly-released trailer.
Afterlife "is a new adventure that connects back to the Manhattan Crossrip of 1984," director and co-writer Jason Reitman told VF.
The movie stars Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard and Paul Rudd.
Fans of the iconic ghostbusters films have already taken to social media to express their thoughts on the trailer, and they range from incredibly impressed to utterly disappointed.
@Ghostbusters very enjoyable to see my hometown in many of the shots in the trailer. I saw you film that shot of the car downtown Drumheller. Excited to see it in the big screen— webreakthequiet (@optomdoc) December 9, 2019
Some are saying the clip reminded them of Stranger Things.
Ghostbusters Afterlife trailer is interesting. Bit stranger things.— Moonbase2 (@TheMoonbase2) December 9, 2019
While others simply aren't impressed with what they've seen so far.
I seem to be in the minority, but I’m disappointed with the new Ghostbusters trailer.— Jeremy Homan (@jeremyhoman) December 9, 2019
Will I still watch it? Yes.
Will I hate myself for watching it? Probably.
I‘ve clearly learned nothing from the Great Ghostbusters Reboot Debacle of 2016. https://t.co/VNacPlV24P
Though opinions on the trailer vary widely, many are using the opportunity to criticize the all-female 2016 Ghostbusters flop.
The new #ghostbusters trailer looks so fucking good. This feels like a movie that leans into the nostalgia instead of trying to spite people (2016). So much fan service in the trailer alone. I can’t wait.— Michael Hurley (@4mikehurley) December 9, 2019
And many are saying the trailer simply isn't enough to know whether or not the movie will be a hit.
"This is a very well put together trailer! Much better than the reveal trailer for Ghostbusters 2016! It also doesn't reveal too much of the plot," one Twitter user wrote.
"That said, I can't guarantee this will be good. It might suck. It might be as good as the classics. Who knows?"
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is set to hit theatres on July 10, 2020.
