Discuss the upcoming movie to be released in 2020 and directed by Jason Reitman.

I could see a sequel to Afterlife being basically like "IT". kids dealing with ghosts in their town with ghostbusting gadgets Egon hid away. They are just kids after all. And unless they have a growth spurt in a few years then they will just be teenagers.

I think the reason why this film is the way it is, is because they want to change up the formula so Ghostbusters doesn't just have to stand for a business venture. Even Reitman himself said he could see multiple types of directions the franchise could go

So you are basically absolute correct. Except for the Podcast Phoebe switch up.

Get your Proton Packs ready, Ghostbusters: Afterlife is finally here! The charming and delightful sequel is filled with action, adventure, and spooky spirits. And if you stay for the credits you get two cameo-filled stingers. We’re here to explain their relevance and what the final one means going forward. Basically, there’s likely to be a lot more Ghostbusters in our future!

That Charming Mid-Credits Stinger

In one of Ghostbusters: Afterlife’s most unique and inventive moments, we see a credit for Sigourney Weaver. Like everyone else in your theater, you were probably thinking, “What? When? I didn’t see her!!” And then the stinger begins. Here we see Weaver and Bill Murray back as their characters Dana Barrett and Peter Venkman from the original movies. We’d already seen Murray in that massive final sequence, but here we get a more intimate moment. The two were romantically connected in the original films and this stinger hints that they might have settled down together, or at least that they’re still very good friends.

During the sequence, they’re playing with the ESP machine that Venkman uses in the first Ghostbusters film. It’s a nice nod to one of the franchise’s most famous gags. And it’s fun to see Venkman beaten at his own game. Dana is testing his extrasensory perception using cards with shapes on one side that Venkman is guessing. It’s something he used to do as part of his role as a parapsychologist. He seems to be doing well, but Dana realizes that he marked the cards and starts shocking him in punishment. It’s a sweet callback that also sees Venkman jokingly finally admit to his underhanded ways. See, he only ever used to shock the male students, never the women… which isn’t surprising if you know Venkman.

That Big Post-Credits Moment

If the first stinger was a fun callback to some faves from the past, the post-credits scene hints at where Ghostbusters might go in the future. Before we get there, though, let’s talk about the setup. The final act of Afterlife features an unexpected reunion with the original team of Ghostbusters. Three are alive: Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman, and Winston Zeddemore. And one is a ghostly apparition: Egon Spengler. It’s an emotional moment that seems to represent closure for the team. But one of them is still eager to bust some ghosts. And that brings us to the post-credits sequence that hints at the future of the franchise.

Right before the credits roll, the Ecto-1 drives back into NYC. And after the credits, we see why as Janine (Annie Potts) visits Winston. We learn he’s a hugely successful businessman. He talks to her about legacy and creating something for the next generation. But he reminds us that he’ll always be a Ghostbuster. As he says those words, we see him opening the famous doors to the fire station that used to be home to the team. We also see Ecto-1 returning to its home, and then we see Winston with his hand on the famed car. As the camera pans away we see a red light flashing on the wall. It’s reminiscent of the light that would flash when the team had to go and catch some ghosts.

What Does it All Mean??

The first stinger is likely just a nice way to say goodbye to some old faves. Murray and Aykroyd seem ready to say goodbye to the Ghostbusters. And Weaver only appears in the stinger, likely as a nice nod to her vital roles in the past movies. While we could see any of them come back for future films it seems unlikely. But the final post-credits scene sets up Winston as the future of the Ghostbusters.

Not only does he have the money to run the organization properly, but he just met a new generation of spirit-centric kids to help him. If there’s another Ghostbusters movie you can expect to see Winston leading the charge. And don’t be surprised if we see Mckenna Grace’s Phoebe, Finn Wolfhard’s Trevor, and Logan Kim’s Podcast coming along for the ride. And as huge Winston stans, we couldn’t be happier.

Dan just fulfilled his lifetime dream: bringing back the Ghostbusters in a successful way. I don't think he wants to say it goodbye. I think the next movie has the potential to be the live action version of the Extreme Ghostbusters. A new crop trained by the seasoned veterans

I agree. I feel like this scene would have benefited from Ray being in it, either instead of or in addition to Janine. The two of them, heading back home in the Ecto-1, echoing the "Judgment Day " scene. Ray, still high off of busting Gozer (again) wishes that they could be Ghostbusters again. But alas, he sold the firehouse years ago. That's when Winston reveals that after he hit it big, he bought back the firehouse "just in case." They pull up to the firehouse and Winston opens the doors. They pull the Ecto-1 into the garage. They discuss how they'd renovate the space. Then maybe we get a shot of the ECU. Or maybe the guys have a half eaten pizza that they set down, and Slimer pops up and eats it. Something like that anyway.

Sure, these folks aren't specific GB nuts like us, but anyone who uses the internet outside of Facebook or Instagram is still too niche of a group to speak for the general audience. Regular folks who walk the street aren't posting in a movies subreddit. The internet isn't an accurate barometer for anything related to the public at large, no matter the group. FB has a wide enough, pedestrian base that I might give it some thought. But beyond that, anywhere else is still a narrow group of people.

Don't overthink it. I don't think GB has enough mainstream attention to guarantee some kind of billion dollar hit, but the property is certainly known, thanks in large part to the theme song continuing to permeate pop culture.

I work at Starbucks and a fair amount of my co-workers (everyday folks in their early to mid 20s) still didn't know GB:A was coming. THAT's more reflective of the general populace. If the movie's good, word of mouth is going to be what makes it money--average people don't know enough about GB to have much of an opinion on it either way. Trust me.
#4957760
I dunno guys,

For me, im just happy we finally have a continual “third” film after all these damn years. Im not gonna over analyze what its success will determine. Im just taking in the ride that its almost here.

I already love Ghostbusters, and i will continue to after the films released or whatever other adventures are in front of us. Its been a wild ride.

GB doesnt need to “live” on in the mainstream, if the movie does poor or its forgotten after the hype..so be it, The numbers dont matter. If Ghostbusters was meant to be some kids or persons favorite thing, it will find them.


Ps—what the heck is a zaxby? Im from the philly area.

I don’t think r/movies is ‘regular folks’ tbf.

Also the Mini Puft idea dates back to the original 80’s comic run, and anyone who uses either Groot or Yoda as a reference are filling their nappies with too many contemporary Disney movies. Clearly, Gremlins-inspired if anything (even Minions given the slapstick).

The other other lazy complaint is Stranger Things Busters which only works if you reduce the original movie down to one facet: irreverent comedy - and ignore the other genres mashed up in there eg. the horror is played straight. And also the cartoon which regularly veered into other moods and sentimentality.

The real mainstream, regular folks won’t be on reddit analysing posters, but the one thing I do agree with… I am not confident the movie is going to draw them to the cinema. I think talk has been more positive than ATC, but it’s a concern.

Yeah, when I'm feeling nervous I can see this being a Dredd or Blade Runner 2049, where the majority of the notices are fantastic, the film is excellent, but no one turns up for it.

It's not for the sake of being negative or doom-mongering, it's just that Ghostbusters' cultural cache is more in line with the popularity of The Terminator than Star Wars, and that history of legacy sequel reception (putting aside the quality for a sec) has not been great.

Which is where word-of-mouth will come in if it is as good as some reviews suggest, because unlike Dredd and Blade Runner, you can take the kids to this one - and that's always a good crowd. Plus, there's a lot of folks rabid about Finn Wolfhard which can't harm it either.


I feel like I'm getting ready for a first gig! So much can go wrong, so much can go right! I almost wish I could just have it in isolation and not have to worry about all this! :D

Okay I love the fact that this thing didn’t really spoil the way the final act plays out.

That being said:
Man I love the description of the post credit scenes and it leaves me feeling extremely satisfied. In all honesty this is pretty much everything I could have hoped for and as for some of the other stuff mentioned in the spoilers above. I kind of hoped and expected Ghost Egon. My question is how is he going to look in his spectral form. Is he going to be his older self like the beginning of the movie? Or is he going to appear young and whole again now that he’s a ghost? It can go either way. ;)
This Post Contains Spoilers
Hey I know that we have had some thoughts on the book stacking, that Egon is training himself to manipulate stuff. Like moving that lamp in trailer 2. Do you think he could be training his poltergeist ability so he can either wield a proton gun?or maybe take control of those proton turrets he installed?

Oh man it would be a trip if they somehow utilized some unused dialogue from any project that Harold had worked on to make him say something fitting. There is some amazing stuff out there, like that computer program that Val Kilmer uses to speak post throat cancer. It has done an amazing job recreating his voice, I wonder if the same can be done with Harold’s. Not certain, he will probably just say a lot with just an expression. One way or another I can’t wait to find out.

In light of the end credits scenes, should GB4 move forward (which, holy shit it sounds like it is and gives a lot more weight to Ernie's comment about it being written!!!), I am curious to see if they will now "restore" one of the Wrectos with the reversed door and use that as the post-Afterlife Ecto-1 or if they will do a bait and switch between films and use the original 1984 Ecto even though it doesn't have the gunner seat mods?

I also love how it seems like they will be sticking with the original Ecto-1 design and probably add enhancements to it rather than ditching her for an all-new vehicle. Even Podcast's line about loving the car makes me think they will keep the Ecto around.

In the film they are probably meant to be at least 2 years younger than that. And even if they timed jumped. The most you could say is that they are 18-21. Although time jumping kids into adults in movies is very rare. They usually want to keep them as kids. Which is why they cast teenagers as kids, so they look young the longest, and not adults as teenagers because those looks fade fairly quick.

I have seen The Extreme Ghostbusters cartoon, but even then i don't buy the idea that these kids/teens will be the new working ghostbusters at the firehouse.
