Haunting New Trailer For Ghostbusters

There was a lot of speculation about what direction the Ghostbusters franchise might take in cinema given the last movie released with Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. The cast was quite a departure from the original guys in street cleaner suits, and the chemistry was eclectic. Comic fans saw how IDW Publishing embraced the concept, and released a good amount of books embracing the new team, but Ghostbusters fans in general wondered what the future held for those who punch protoplasm. Loose lips sink ships, and there wasn’t a lot of chatter about what was on the horizon for Ghostbusters, at least not publicly.

The silence has now been broken.

Jason Reitman — the son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman — is on point to give us a new Ghostbusters film in the summer of 2020.

“I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set,” Reitman told Entertainment Weekly.  “I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans.  This is the next chapter in the original franchise.  It is not a reboot.  What happened in the ‘80s happened in the ‘80s, and this is set in the present day.”

So it’s official!

Ghostbusters is officially back on the books….which is why you need to hit the books! Check your comic shelf library and see if your Ghostbusters collection is up to speed. Got everything from start to finish? If not, check out these trade paperbacks from IDW Publishing that you can order from your local comic shop!

Worlds collide as your favorite Ghostbusters-from all three movies-meet for the first time! It's the biggest crossover since they crossed the streams! Before they began investigating the supernatural, most of the original Ghostbusters were teachers... and they've decided it's time they start sharing their knowledge again. But when their first batch of students start poking around the firehouse and accidentally set in motion the merging of two universes (it's easier than you'd think) Venkman, Stantz, Zeddemore, and Spengler will need all the help they can get to put things right! And who do you think will Answer The Call? (If you guessed Holtzmann, Yates, Tolan, and Gilbert... you get a gold star!) It's a brand new inter-dimensional meeting of the minds!

Bullet points:
* Includes an all-new introduction by Paul Feig, director of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call and Bridesmaids.
* Advance solicited for December release!

All the Ghostbusters-the originals, the ladies of the 2016 film, and beyond-come together against a threat too powerful for any team to handle alone. For a while now, the original Ghostbusters have had access to an interdimensional portal that has given them all-new ways to research the paranormal and consult with Ghostbusters throughout the multiverse... but they haven't shared this tech with any of those other Ghostbusters, and some don't think that's fair. That's why, after a chance meeting, Jillian Holtzmann and Ron Alexander have decided to right this wrong and cobble together their own working portal... which unintentionally unleashes the contents of the Ghostbusters' Containment Unit! Collects all eight issues of Ghostbusters: Crossing Over and the Ghostbusters 2018 Annual.

Advance solicited for January release!
