WATCH: Jason Reitman breaks down the Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer

July 27th, 2021 by Marc Comments

After the awesome new trailer landed today – we’re still watching, rewatching, sobbing, rewatching, scouring the internet for new merchandise etc – we now have a cool, yet fairly sp0iler-free commentary from writer/director Jason Reitman.

The commentary, below, talks about how important family is to the movie as a whole and where many of the scenes in the trailer get their origins… also pretty cool that that zombie is totally practical and also that if you look REALLY closely, that character at the end has a pretty important tattoo on his arm.

Anyway, I’m not going to spoil anything, I’ll let Reitman break it down for 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

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….
