Paul Rudd stars in the new Ghostbusters sequel, called Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
Rather confusingly, this isn’t a sequel to the 2016 Ghostbusters film. It’s actually a direct sequel to the original series and is set in 2019. The last Busters’ movie tanked at the box office, so it makes sense that the studio would want to move away from that series. It is a bit weird though that we hadn’t had any Ghostbusters movies for nearly 30 years and then two are released within 5 years of each other. That’s Hollywood for you…
The new film is set in a sleepy American town. One young girl who lives here finds a load of weird items in a basement underneath her house. Strange metal boxes, dusty scanning machines and old jumpsuits are all stored there and she has no idea why. Paul Rudd’s character recognises the items from when he was a kid, when he watched the Ghostbusters taking out ghouls in New York on the news. But where are they now and why is all their stuff here? Something spooky is going on.
