12 Things We Didn’t Expect to See in the ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Trailer

The first full trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife is here! 2016’s Ghostbusters reboot, which adhered to the original films’ comedic tone, left a lot of fans underwhelmed at the prospect of a future filled with proton packs. Our first look at Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters addresses any staleness by elaborating upon the second part of its title: this new film seems to be consciously aware of its namesake while having a life of its own. By almost completely abandoning the 1984 vibe of “we came, we saw, we kicked its ass,” the trailer adopts a nostalgia similar to Stranger Things or IT (and not just because of Finn Wolfhard). It appears to be a fresh, contemporary, and unexpected take on ghostbusting. With that in mind, here are all of the things we didn’t expect to see in the first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
