So far, we’ve only seen one trailer for the upcoming sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Though the trailer offered an intriguing premise that mixed the vibe of Super 8 with the paranormal activity and legacy of the original Ghostbusters, the major criticism being lobbied at the movie was that it didn’t look like it had the same comedic influence that made the original so memorable. That’s to be expected when you don’t have a cast of Saturday Night Live and Second City cast members, but don’t worry, because co-star Finn Wolfhard says the movie is “really funny” while also being “really faithful” to the series.

The first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife brought the franchise back yet again, this time with a heavy dose of nostalgia in the vein of Super 8 and Stranger Things. One of the chief complaints about this first trailer is that it didn’t have any comedy, a trademark of the original franchise that hailed from bona fide comedians from the likes of Saturday Night Live, The Second City and other comedy institutions. But a slightly different international cut of the Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer does add a couple moments of humor, as well as a bit more proton pack action. Read More »
