The pandemic delayed Ghostbusters: Afterlife so many times that it’s hard to keep track, but the latest trailer confirms the sequel will arrive on November 11th.

The clip follows the initial trailer and a whimsical promo of Paul Rudd encountering Stay Puft Marshmallows in a grocery store. It opens with Carrie Coon confiding in Rudd about her struggles with her daughter Phoebe (McKenna Grace), while her son Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) discovers the Ecto-1 in their shed and drives it through an Oklahoma field.

Original cast members Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts are slated to appear in the sequel, and we get the first glimpse of that through a YouTube clip on a laptop, where Aykroyd famously asks, “Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night?” His present-day voice appears in the final seconds of the clip when he answers a rotary phone and bluntly says, “We’re closed.”

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is directed by Jason Reitman, who co-wrote the screenplay with Gil Kenan. The original cast reunited last summer via Zoom, which you can watch here.
