************** Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, and Paul Rudd star inGhostbusters: Afterlife ******************************** It has been more than years ago Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd first strapped on their proton packs to battle a ghostly infestation in Manhattan in the blockbuster comedyGhostbusters

Now the legacy continues. Sony Pictures just dropped the first trailer for (************************ Ghostbusters: Afterlife, a sequel directed by Jason Reitman (Thank You for Smoking, featuring a whole new team.

Reitman is a fitting choice to direct, as he’s the son of Ivan Reitman, director of the s films. You may have glimpsed Jason, his mother, and his sister in the originalGhostbusters

as residents who are fleeing their haunted skyscraper. Reitman resisted following in his father’s footsteps for years before finally succumbing to the call. “I’ve always thought of myself as the firstGhostbusters

fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set, ”Reitman (toldEW) back in January. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ‘ s happened in the ‘ s, and this is set in the present day. ”

Vanity Fairoffered a first lookat the latest film last week, featuring several stills — including one showing the original Ghostbusterstricked- out ambulance. Per the official synopsis, “A single mother and her two children move to Summerville, Oklahoma, after inheriting property from a previously unknown relative. They discover their family’s legacy to the original Ghostbusters, who have become something of a myth, as many have long since forgotten the events of the ‘Manhattan Crossrip of 1984 ” – ie, the events of the original film. Carrie Coon (The Leftovers) Plays mom Callie, while Mckenna Grace (The Haunting of Hill House) Plays her science-loving daughter Phoebe. Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) plays Son Trevor.

“As the family arrives at an old farm, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters,” Reitman toldVanity Fair

. “Trevor and Phoebe are about to find out who their grandfather was and whether they’re ready to pick up the proton pack themselves.” Among other revealed details, Phoebe will find a device that reads psychokinetic energy. Paul Rudd plays summer school teacher Mr . Grooberson; the Manhattan Crossrip was his most formative childhood memory, and we see his delight at holding a bona fide vintage ghost trap in his hands.

The trailer does not look anything like a

Ghostbusters

movie when it opens. We see Trevor hanging with some new pals, one of whom asks what the family is doing in Summerville. “Honestly, my mom won’t say it, but we’re completely broke,” he replies, as we see a flashback of Callie wearily pulling an eviction notice off the door of their old home. “And the only thing that’s left in our name is this creepy old farmhouse our grandfather left us in the middle of nowhere.” Then there’s a loud noise from the bottom of the mine shaft they’re sitting above, and a fluorescent green ghostie shoots out into the air.
