Yesterday was Ghostbusters Day, and we were all expecting some hot Ghostbuster content to go along with that since Ghostbusters: Afterlife is headed to theaters this year. But, oddly enough, there really wasn’t much to talk about. Even odder still is the fact that today, not yesterday, we’ve got a brand new behind-the-scenes video about Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

When the Ghostbusters cast and filmmakers reunited on Josh Gad’s web series Reunited Apart, there was a little confusion about something Ghostbusters: Afterlife director Jason Reitman said during their chat. Many thought the filmmaker was revealing another sequel was already in development, but it was just an out of context quote that got misconstrued. However, Ghostbusters is still a franchise, and obviously Sony Pictures would like to see Afterlife reinvigorate the brand. That’s why we’re not surprised to hear franchise star and co-creator Dan Aykroyd say the new movie “feeds into the possibility” of more sequels. Read More »

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.
