New video from ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ shows Paul Rudd fleeing for his life as the Terror Dog attacks
The premiere of Ghostbusters: Afterlife is approaching, and a new trailer for the film shows that our favourite horror dog has resurrected! The film, directed by Jason Reitman, transports us back to the world that Egon, Winston, Ray, and Peter created, as well as to our present-day period with Egon’s family. And, unlike the 2016 film Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, which took place in a world where Ernie Hudson played a different role from Winston Zeddemore, the picture features an all-star cast with performances from Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, McKenna Grace, and others.
More of Rudd’s Mr. Grooberson exploring the Wal-Mart (which also had the miniature Stay Puft Marshmallow Men all killing each other and creating smores out of each other’s remains) is shown in the new clip, but this time he is attempting to flee the Terror Dog. You know, the one who wouldn’t leave Rick Moranis alone in the first Ghostbusters as he fled across New York City?
The Ghostbusters series has gone through a lot in recent years. While many fans enjoyed the 2016 film starring Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Melissa McCarthy, it was faced with criticism at every turn, leaving many fans uninterested in returning to the series. However, after seeing Afterlife at New York Comic-Con, it appears that this film is as much for nostalgia enthusiasts as it is for newcomers to the franchise.
If this scene is any indication, we’ve got it all wrapped up in one! Many of us were afraid of the Terror Dog when we were kids watching the 1984 film because we simply wanted Rick Moranis’ Louis Tully to escape or at the very least go to the Ghostbusters while he had the chance. Fortunately, Louis was unharmed, but I’m concerned for Mr. Grooberson, and I hope he doesn’t suffer the same fate, especially because Grace’s Phoebe and Wolfhard’s Trevor appear to want his assistance in understanding their grandfather’s legacy.
On November 19, Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be released in theatres, and it will be emotional to witness Harold Ramis’ Egon Spengler’s legacy continue, especially through a character like Phoebe, who appears to be a spitting image of her grandfather in the trailers. And now that we’ve seen this sequence, we can’t wait to see what Reitman has in store for us at the theatre! Take a look at the video below:
