Ghostbusters 3 officially called Ghostbusters: Afterlife and trailer is mere days away!

December 3rd, 2019 by Marc Comments

Exciting Ghostbusters news, gang!

It looks like the new Movie, previously called Ghostbusters 3 or Ghostbusters 2020, has an official title: Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

The title was speculated upon from an early stage as it was the shooting title for the movie, but now – according to the BBFC which has just rated the first trailer (here) – the movie is indeed called Afterlife.

This makes sense, given that the movie will likely pass the legacy on to the next generation of ‘Busters and may also have the late Harold Ramis’ character Egon involved in the story as a ghost (we’re hearing).

And as if that’s not enough, it seems that the movie’s first trailer is only days away!

Yes, we’re going to get a trailer for the movie we’ve waited 30 years for probably within the week!

How’s that for an early Christmas gift?

Director Jason Reitman has brought back Dan Ackroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and – hopefully – Bill Murray along with newcomers Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, McKenna Grace, Logan Kim and Paul Rudd.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife arrives to save the world again in July 2020.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
