WATCH: Bill Murray watches the mini-Mr Stay Puft scene from Ghostbusters: Afterlife for the first time

April 24th, 2021 by Marc Comments

A couple of weeks ago we got a new teaser for  Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the third Ghostbusters movie which was meant to release last year but due to, well, you know, it won’t arrive until November.

The teaser (here) revealed that this time there’s not just one massive Mr Stay Puft to deal with but rather there’s hundreds of tiny ones and, while it’s a big divisive to fans, it manages to be both terrifying and cute as hell at the same time and, we’ve not lucky enough to see original star Bill Murray’s reaction to them.

Now, while we know that another of the original Ghostbusters, Ernie Hudson, has seen the movie, which left him “speechless“, it seems that Murray has not.

It seems Hudson got a screening with writer/director Jason Reitman while Murray got sent a clip by Ghostbusters I & II director Ivan Reitman (Jason’s dad) and the clip was the mini-Stay Pufts running amok and, I have to say, Murray’s reaction is adorable, saying: “That was funny… that’s good. That’s got the feel, doesn’t it?”

You can check out the clip below and reflect how lucky you are to, in all the eons of time that has been and that will continue to be, you’re alive at the time when Ghostbusters: Afterlife is a thing. You lucky, nerd!

Let me know your thoughts, guys.

From director Jason Reitman and producer Ivan Reitman, comes the next chapter in the original Ghostbusters universe. In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, when a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind. The film is written by Jason Reitman & Gil Kenan.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is expected to arrive in cinemas this November.

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….
