I think the bar's now set at:

Okay: The Gunner seat, RTV, etc.

Not okay: Bill Murray in uniform, and maybe today's spoiler.

...

And I guess there's technically a third category: wasn't okay but now is: such as the kids being in uniform.

I think they're boiling it down to if the spoiler is absolutely in the general public's attention then it's okay, but if it's not then no? I suppose it wouldn't be a spoiler then?

What's the point of spoiler tags if you can't talk about spoilers and if they're not spoilers if everybody knows about it then-

Finally maybe we'll get on screen confirmation if the 1 & 1A were the same or different vehicles.

Theory: Ecto-1A was too top heavy to make the drive from NYC to Oklahoma so he took it apart for car parts for the Ecto-1. Then sold the shell on eBay for traveling funds.

Coming soon! More Funkos that will be from Baskin-Robbins!

I know I'll be getting them!

Sorry to hear that. It seems international fans get left out on a lot of the good stuff. :(

I have a theory:
we saw the Terror Dog following Grooberson. He's able to outrun the beast and reaching his car.

I don't think he will be possessed. I think he'll pull a Ray Vigo and will be hypnotized and he'll start having these strange dreams where he's the Key Master. Those glowing eyes in the background looks like something lurking in the shadows, something that controls you from far away.

Then there is that Carrie Coon interview where she says that she's not the damsel in distress but she join the action, adding "basically I'm a Ghostbuster. So, maybe at the end Grooberson is possessed but they're not able to take Callie and she joins the old Ghostbusters to save the world and Grooberson.

I don't think they'll replicate the exact Louis/Dana possession

Same here mate. The hasbro figures front up in speciality stores, 8 Hasbro Wrectos just showed up in a local CD shop on Thursday.
As for everything else I either need to troll the net or face ebay prices.

I was going to do this but I’ll check with you first before anything gets out of hand. Can I make a thread where I specifically lay out in the title like: “**WARNING**: MAJOR **SPOILERS** FROM GHOSTBUSTERS AFTERLIFE DISCUSSION”. Obviously sharing copyright images and screenshots is a no no but would it be ok to create a separate thread just to discuss all the things that will be popping up soon?

If we can get by with a vague easter egg on a ciggarette box with the Belushi Farm logo on it that's something that the kid's won't notice.

Even though Ray's smoking habit's have been observed in the last two films' I don;t think that or even vaping will be shown since the target audiance is the family friendly crowd. Again, I could be wrong and be completley blowing smoke. Pun intended.
Where did this idea come from that simply showing something happening is “promoting it”. These parents let their children watch super hero movies where people die constantly and are murdered but god forbid they see someone smoking a cigarette! Like…Tony Stark straight up murders people as Iron Man. Is that promoting murder? Heck no it’s just a silly movie. So how is showing someone get high or smoke a cigarette “promoting it”?

There’s nothing more annoying than “will someone please think of the children!”. They can go watch fluffy bunnies skip down rainbows in the latest Pixar movie. This movie is rated PG-13. That’s plenty old enough to see some drugs getting used. Personally if this movie had the balls to show someone Finn Wolfhards age hanging out with friends & smoking a joint, ya know, like actual teenagers do, I’d applaud that. I really would. It would be a real genuine moment. Somehow this notion came along that Ghostbusters should be family friendly to the point of being neutered. Those first two movies are intense! The first one has a lot of swear words, sexual innuendo and everyone smokes like a chimney. And it’s friggin awesome! The first movie feels gritty and real & borderline rated R. Who doesn’t love that cigarette hanging on to Ray’s lip for dear life when Ray first sees Slimer? That’s a great moment. It’s human.

One of my favourite moments in anything is in the movie Poltergeist. It doesn’t involve ghosts or special effects. It’s just the two parents laying in bed at night, talking, while Steve tries to roll a joint & fails so Diane takes over and they start smoking. They aren’t pot heads. It’s not used as a joke. It’s just a real moment between two adults doing what adults do. I love stuff like that. Anything that adds a verisimilitude to a movie is a good thing.

My two cents regarding spoilers. If you decide to use a spoilertag, let us know what the spoiler is about. Give it a title.

For instance, the spoiler Dave posted could be phrased like this.

Spoiler regarding certain character image:
blah blah blah

That way the people who decide to click the spoiler at least know what they are clicking on instead of it becoming a lottery and perhaps click on a spoiler they didn't want to know.

Using spoiler tags to hide spoilers from those who don't want to see them? Egads!

Richardless, you're one of the better voices of reason around here. I think an actual spoiler thread would be awesome!

So I don't know now if I need to spoiler this or not because it's just speculating...
the leaked image duplicates something we've already seen in an officially released image on a t-shirt... It's the pair of red eyes with the triangular pupils... Could be a terror dog or Gozer and the reflection of the temple, but given they revealed Gozer in the trailer already in what appears to be a scene from the second act of the movie based on what we know... could this be our first glimpse of Shandor himself?

I've added that to the message I set AJ yesterday but still waiting to hear back from him. As soon as I get word from him I'll post in this thread.

I'm sorry about the frustration this is currently causing. I appreciate some members do want a "no-holds-barred" discussion on anything coming out of the movie, whilst others want to be able to discuss the movie with only seeing the small spoilers. I'm hoping that we'll have a final decision ASAP so that the rest of the time between now and November can go smoothly.

Just adding my two worthless cents on this "now with more spoiler flavor" discussion.

If that thread happens, maybe make the first THREE posts in there giant warnings for those who MAY accidentally click on the wrong spoiler thread to have a bit of a buffer and plenty of warning. Overkill? Yes, but then there's ZERO excuse if they continue READING said thread and get mad.

I know Ray's Occult was in the last trailer, but after all the earlier "will Afterlife ignore GB2" talk, I think it will be hilarious if they show up in the 1A, which acknowledges GB2 in the biggest way possible.

But on the other hand as much as I love the 1A, part of me wants to see a third car (or maybe a modified 1A) that we haven't seen before, perhaps something Ray had worked on that never got to be used. (Also, if the three of them really arrive together in one car, then I demand a fourth movie that's just about their 24 hour road trip.)

So we have been told.


But eh, even if it did, a little CGI is all it would take to return it to it's former glory if it's just for a few shots.

Or they shot those before they converted it.

Given how much has been practically filmed I'm not convinced Jason would bring in a CG 1A.

That also seems unlikely... If there's any weight to the fan speculation the '1A prop has been resurrected, I'd imagine it'd been done after the location filming... It'd seem a substantial cost to clean and repair '1A, only to then rip all that work down to turn it into a Wrecto. IF the production has restored '1A, it'd be after the bulk of the filming had been done.

For reasons I can’t quite understand or explain; seeing the Ecto 1A or at least having it addressed is one of the things I desperately want this film to include.

And there’s no good reason for me feeling that way but if it is in the film it’ll be delighted.

Pretty sure it won’t be but I for one am hoping it’s in there.

It didn't exist before GB2 either. They built the farmhouse for this movie (not to mention the Ecto-1 which is not the original car), I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that they could build a new 1A for a few shots. Or something similar to the 1A but not exact, which could easily be explained by them changing it after GB2.

Everything becomes easier to explain if it's two separate cars. It never made sense (within the movie timeline) that they would turn the 1 into the 1A but then back again, and assuming they arrive with their own equipment, it's the easiest way for the OGs to arrive.

Ever since I was five I've thought 1A is a different car. If we get to learn that 1A has always been a different car at the expense of the original orange 1984 plates being on the original (and not the white ones we saw at the beginning of GBII), that alone will make me "very excited, and very pleased".

Off the top of my head, the references/connections to GBII that we know about so far... the toaster, Ray's Occult, Cannibal Girls poster at the local theater, and now what happened to 1A... am I missing any? The mood slime was such a memorable part of that film that I bet we'll see it in the background of Afterlife... or even the second logo patch or slime blower pieces. In my opinion anything at all from II just adds another layer of coolness to the GB mythology for the teens to learn about.
