Ghostbusters: Afterlife Has Been Delayed To November 19

A minor delay was just announced for the highly-anticipated supernatural comedy.


Sony Pictures has announced that Ghostbusters: Afterlife will now be hitting theaters on November 19. This is just a minor delay from the previous slated release date, November 11--and good news, as many other movies at many studios are also being shuffled even further due to the continuing global pandemic.

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 recently released trailer you can watch below is well worth viewing until the very end, as it finishes with some strong suggestions that Dan Aykroyd will return as Ray Stantz.

The movie was also recently screened at CinemaCon, and early response on social media from attendees in late August was glowingly positive. In addition to confirming that Aykroyd makes a return, joining him are Bill Murray as Peter Venkman, Ernie Hudson as Winston Zedemore, and Sigourney Weaver as Dana Barrett.

They join a cast that includes stars Paul Rudd (Avengers: Endgame), Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), McKenna Grace (Captain Marvel), Carrie Coon (The Leftovers, Avengers: Infinity War), and Bokeem Woodbine (Spider-Man: Homecoming). Many of the CinemaCon viewers also praised director Jason Reitman--whose father Ivan directed the original 1984 movie--which was described by many as reminiscent of some of Spielberg's best.
