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. 

Earlier this week, Vanity Fair reported that the movie follows a single mom and her two kids as they deal with ghosts in a small town in Oklahoma. 

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. 

The trailer, released by Sony Pictures earlier today, gives viewers a two-minute and 27-second sneak peak of the fourth movie in the Ghostbusters franchise

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. 

Some are saying the clip reminded them of Stranger Things

While others simply aren't impressed with what they've seen so far. 

Though opinions on the trailer vary widely, many are using the opportunity to criticize the all-female 2016 Ghostbusters flop. 

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.
