Here's my view on what the trailer we may see this week might feature:
Sony Pictures logo.
Columbia Pictures logo.
Fade from black on a car heading along a highway, summer sun blazing.
Interior shot of the car featuring Finn, Mckenna, with Carrie driving.
Dialogue: Generic talk about moving to Summerville, Finn or Grace expressing their wish to have stayed in their old home. Carrie reassures the kids things are going to be great.
Exterior shot of the car as it passes the "Welcome to Summerville" sign, we get a pan of the town itself which seems charming, if unremarkable.
Shot of Carrie, Finn and Mckenna moving into an apartment - NOT the farmhouse, meeting the neighbours. There's some sort of visual cue none of them see, or at least see properly, suggesting something unusual is occurring in Summerville - fade to black.
Fade from black, Finn at his first day at his new school, he introduces himself, and meets Celeste and Logan. We get an abridged explanation of the old house, and its reclusive former occupant.
Finn and his new friends ride up to the property line. Finn suggests they check it out. Celeste and Logan get part way, but it's only Finn who makes it to the property. He finds Ecto-1 in the barn, and pulls back the tarp to reveal the logo. Fade or cut to black.
Finn starts to do a little digging on the internet, his sister quickly becomes involved. They learn a bit about the Ghostbusters. They visit Ecto-1 again, this time with Logan and Celeste.
A clip of Paul's character, talking about the seismic activity in the town
A clip of the kids plotting, figuring that with the equipment they've found, they could try sort things out themselves, have a Summer adventure.
A snippet of the chase in Ecto-1.
A clip of the the kids getting caught by the town sheriff.
A clip of the bigger threat starting to make itself known.
A clip of Carrie and Paul getting pulled into the events.
A tease of something appropriately dramatic as the trailer ends, leaving us wanting more.
A final bit of funny dialogue, a final reminder this is meant to be a comedy, even if it is a bit darker than before.
