Ghostbusters: Afterlife

From Jason Reitman, son of Ivan Reitman who directed the originals, this is a direct sequel to the '80s blockbusters. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts reprise their roles. They're joined by new cast members Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd, Finn Wolfhard and Mckenna Grace.

When a single mum (Coon) and her two kids (Wolfhard and Grace) arrive in small-town Oklahoma, they begin to discover - with the help of the kids' new summer school teacher (Rudd) - their family connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their late grandfather left behind.

This is not a movie that can stand alone. It is more like half a movie... a film made to sell us more lunchboxes.
