The title of 2020’s Ghostbusters revival has been revealed as Ghostbusters: Afterlife, with Vanity Fair offering up the first plot details and images from the film. Paramount has also released a new poster for the film, seen here.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife centers on Callie (Carrie Coon) and her kids Phoebe (McKenna Grace) and Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) as the move to Oklahoma into a haunted house that reveals their family connection to one of the original Ghostbusters – though which of the four is Phoebe and Trevor’s grandfather remains unrevealed.
