Ghostbusters' Afterlife

The time is over; the movie we have been waiting for all year long since 2020 has finally been released. Not to be confused with the 2016 reboot, which featured Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones in lead roles, the fourth part of the Ghostbuster series is a direct sequel to the original 80s movies. The film is set 30 years after the events of Ghostbusters 2 and introduces us to a new generation.

The film is directed by Jason Reitman and revolves around siblings Pheobe (Mckenna Grace) and Trevor (Finn Wolfhard), who start experiencing strange things in their neighborhood. Things turn upside down when they come to know about their connection to the original ghostbusters.
