WATCH: First clip from Ghostbusters: Afterlife brings back a familiar face; many of them, in fact

April 7th, 2021 by Marc Comments

The first clip from Ghostbusters: Afterlife is here and, well, it’s not what we expected.

Leaning heavily into the fans’ nostalgia, the clip features Paul Rudd’s teacher, Mr Gooberson (Baskin Robbins always finds out), out shopping for snacks when he runs into a familiar face… or, rather, many of them.

Honestly, I don’t know what to make of it – I love that, like the original movies, the new outing embraces the silliness of Stay Puft but I just hope he manages to keep it this side of too silly.

As It is, I enjoyed the scene and look forward to seeing it all in context. Oh, but how amazing is that Elmer Bernstein-inspired music?!?!?

And I’m very happy to see the ‘only in theatres’ at the end. Aren’t you?

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.

Sweet. Mischievous. Savage. 🔥 Mini-Pufts are out of the bag, don’t miss #Ghostbusters: Afterlife only in theaters this fall.

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….
