First trailer for 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife' starring Paul Rudd has dropped

The trailer for the latest Ghostbuster's movie, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, has dropped and we couldn't be more excited.

With cameos from the cast of the 80's cult classic including Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver, it's bringing the 1984 flick to a whole new generation, and will star Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard and of course, Paul Rudd.

To see the trailer for yourself, check out the video below: 

Ghostbusters: Afterlife follows a single mom and her two children after they inherit and subsequently move into a mysterious property in Oklahoma. Surprise, surprise, it's haunted, and they know exactly who to call.

On The Greg Hill Show, star of the original movie, Dan Ackroyd, said: "Jason Reitman wrote a beautiful, heartfelt script that takes the real DNA from the first two movies and transfers that directly to the third, the next generation."

"It hands the legacy off to a new generation of stars, and players, and actors, and characters. And we've shot our part - [Bill] Murray, Sigourney [Weaver], and Annie Potts - and it was really exciting working on this new idea, this new take on this story."

While specific details about the movie's plot have been kept under wraps until now, at the Ghostbusters Fan Fest in June, director Jason Reitman emphasized that it was very much a new movie that honors its classic comedy-horror roots.

"I'm not gonna give anything away today, but I will say it's a new movie. This is a new movie about a new set of characters, it takes place in a new place, a new location," he said.

This is the latest installment in the franchise since 1989's Ghostbusters II, so, needless to say, it's been a long time coming.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is set to be released in the UK and US on July 10, 2020.
