Ghostbusters: Afterlife Gets New Release Date, And Don't Breathe Sequel Date Announced

Sony announces new release dates for two big movies in 2021.


It has been 10 months since the first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, a movie that was originally going to hit theaters in July 2020. However, Sony has announced the movie is getting pushed back for a second time. In addition, the movie studio has revealed the release date for the sequel to Don't Breathe.

In December 2019, we got our first look at the next movie in the Ghostbusters franchise--which takes place present day after the events of Ghostbusters II. Sony has announced that the film is being pushed back to June 11. Interestingly enough, this is the second weekend of June, which is the date when the first Ghostbusters debuted in 1984.

Additionally, the Don't Breathe Sequel will be hitting theaters on August 13, 2021. Rodo Sayagues will co-write and direct the film. He also co-wrote the original alongside Don't Breathe's director Fede Álvarez. The Don't Breathe follow-up was announced back in 2016. At this time, there is not much known about the film, but Álvarez has said he knows "exactly where it goes."

Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be directed by Jason Reitman, the son of Ghostbusters' director Ivan Reitman. The film will star Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), and McKenna Grace (Captain Marvel). Additionally, Bill Murray, Dan Akyroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts will reprise their roles from the original movies, but it's unknown how large these roles are.
