Ghostbusters: Afterlife aka Ghostbusters 3 officially opens in Indonesian cinemas starting December 1, 2021. The film, starring Paul Rudd, is a continuation of the two original Ghostbusters saga that are iconic in pop culture. Here’s the synopsis of Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Ghostbusters: Afterlife follows the adventures of brothers Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) and Phoebe (Mckenna Grace), after finding the remains of their grandfather, Egon Spengler.
They moved into Grandpa’s house in the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma’s midtown Summerville. Egon died a week earlier and left the house to their mother, Callie (Carrie Coon).
In addition, they were evicted from their house in the city because they were bankrupt and could not pay the rent, so they were forced to move to a house that was not well maintained and was known to be haunted by local residents.
The struggle of the remaining Spengler family to adapt in the new environment is quite heavy. Phoebe, a 12-year-old genius, has problems socializing.
Then Trevor is going through puberty and they have no money at all, while Callie faces the problem of hurting Egon and being a single parent.
Not to mention the slanted views of local residents who call Egon a Land Farmer because of his strange behavior in the form of farming but not planting anything.
In the midst of that situation, Trevor meets Lucky (Caleste O’Connor) and falls in love with him, Phoebe meets Podcast (Logan Kim) who approaches him to be friends, and Callie meets Gary Grooberson (Paul Rudd) who is Phoebe’s science teacher at the school. school and a seismological researcher.
While adapting, Phoebe feels a number of oddities in Egon’s house and the small town where they live.
Starting from strange tools, poltergeist phenomena, to periodic earthquakes even though the city of Summerville does not have a volcano or is on a plate.
Summerville is known to only have ancient mines built by Ivo Shandor. The mine was once very productive but was suddenly abandoned.
The old Ghostbusters team reappeared in the trailer for the movie Ghostbusters: Afterlife or Ghostbusters 3. They were shown in one of the scenes when one of the main characters was opening YouTube.
The two-and-a-half-minute trailer begins with Callie (Carrie Coon) having dinner with Grooberson (Paul Rudd). Callie discusses the condition of her two children, Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) and Trevor (Finn Wolfhard).
He was worried about Phoebe’s very quiet and mysterious nature. Especially since their finances went bankrupt and they had to live in a creepy old dilapidated house left by their father in a remote area.
However, Phoebe actually can adapt well in that house. Especially after he found a ghost catcher belonging to the old Ghostbusters team in the house.
Likewise with Trevor who accidentally found the legendary Ghostbusters car in quite severe condition. He also repaired the car engine so that it can be used again.
The scene continued with the appearance of ghosts in their area. Phoebe is very curious to find out what really happened, that’s when she finds an ad for the old team Ghostbusters on YouTube.
At the end of the trailer, Trevor and Phoebe are seen able to use Ghostbusters tools. They even modified the ghost capture tool to be more sophisticated than before.
The trailer closes with the phone ringing at a bookstore on the occult. The recipient’s face is not shown, but looks like one of the members of the old Ghostbusters team.
