Sony have dropped the latest trailer for Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire where the Spengler family will return to where it all started in New York. Teaming up with the original ghostbusters at the iconic New York City firehouse.
Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) have been busy developing a top-secret research lab and have revolutionized ghostbusting. They join forces in the city with franchise newcomers from the Spengler family Callie (Carrie Coon), Trevor (Finn Wolfhard), Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) and Paul Rudd’s Gary Grooberson is along for the ride.
When the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, a terrifying icy threat known as the “Death Chill.” Ghostbusters young & old along with their knew technology have to save the world from a potential ice age.
In an interview with Total Film Frozen Empire director and co-writer Gil Kenan explains the move away (In Afterlife) and the return to New York, saying, “The move to Oklahoma in Afterlife was very much by design. We knew we had to get away from New York City in order to recontextualize what it meant to ghost-bust and what it meant to be a Ghostbuster. We wanted to refocus the stories on a character’s arc; on the arc of the Spangler family and on Phoebe in particular. We needed to get away from the apparatus of ghostbusting in order to redefine it.”
“Having done that, the next task was, ‘How do you take that discovery? How do you take the path that’s been laid out in front of our characters and force them to step into the ring? What does it mean to be a Ghostbuster? What does it mean to be a Ghostbuster in New York City? And specifically, what does it mean to be a Ghostbuster in New York City when the greatest threat ever facing the institution comes to bear?’ That’s this story.”
Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire will be in theaters March 22.
