The new Ghostbusters movie was just filmed in Canada and here's what it looks like

Residents of a small town just 170 kilometres south of Calgary were treated to the Hollywood experience this past summer when their town was transformed into the setting for the new Ghostbusters movie. 

According to CBC, the directors and production managers were drawn to the town because of its classic, charming look. 

So, during the month of August, Fort Macleod transformed into a picturesque Oklahoma town. 

And now we finally have details and the trailer about the soon-to-be-released movie that filmed in Canada not long ago. 

Earlier this week, Vanity Fair reported that the movie, titled Ghostbusters: Afterlife, will follow a single mom and her two kids dealing with ghosts. 

Afterlife "is a new adventure that connects back to the Manhattan Crossrip of 1984," director and cowriter Jason Reitman told VF.  

The movie stars Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace,  Finn Wolfhard and Paul Rudd. 

Some photos of the new film were also just released, and they prove exactly why filmmakers chose Fort Macleod. 

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is set to hit theatres on July 10, 2020.
