Ghostbusters: Afterlife Clip Brings Back Staypuft!

by | Apr 7, 2021

Who ya gonna call… when cinemas open back up? Ghostbusters: Afterlife will finally be hitting screens in November, but apart from a trailer from back in 2019, we have yet to see anything from the greatly anticipated sequel. Apart from trying to revive the franchise, the films promises to bring back the original cast, so fans are super excited to see what’s in store. Well happy news… here’s a little slice of the new film and it’s more epic than you can imagine.

A new clip, dropped by Sony Pictures, features Paul Rudd and a surprise character from the original 1984 film, Staypuft! The short snippet sees Rudd shopping in a local store when a bunch of Staypuft Marshmallows pop to life and start to get up to mischief. Yep, Staypuft is out of the bag and half way down the isle.

The new film Directed by Jason Reitman (whose father Ivan Reitman directed the original), will not factor in the events of Paul Feig’s 2016 Ghostbusters movie, but instead will continue the world set out in the original two films. It stars Carrie Coon as Callie and her children Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) and Phoebe (McKenna Grace), who after being evicted from their home move to a farm inherited from Callie’s late father (theorized to be Harold Ramis’ Egon Spengler), located in Summerville Oklahoma. Soon after arriving, spooky things start to happen when earth quakes shake the town.

Rudd plays Mr. Grooberson, a seismologist interested in the strange earthquakes happening in the local area, who teams up with family to investigate the supernatural occurrences. Though it’s very possible that baby Staypufts may just upstage the seasoned actor.

Originally set for July 2020, the release date was then moved to June 11th 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Currently, it’s slated for a November 11th 2021 release.
