After generations came together in Oklahoma in 2021, the Ghostbusters are going home. Well, at least the old ones are. Technically, the new Ghostbusters are going someplace new. What matters is they’re all heading back to where things started for the franchise, New York City. It’s a good thing, too. The Big Apple is going to need all of them. Columbia Pictures’ first teaser trailer for (the officially named) Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire is a chilling look at the horrors that await the City That Never Sleeps. A powerful, ancient enemy is turning fear itself into its greatest weapon. Take a look at the Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire trailer below.
No need to wonder if the original Ghostbusters will return like they did in 2021’s Afterlife. They are a big part of this Ghostbusters sequel’s trailer, which is way more grim than we would have imagined. At least Paul Rudd is back to keep things light. Unfortunately, New York City will need more than a little light to thaw out.
To help us make sense of the trailer, here is the official synopsis for Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire from Columbia Pictures:
In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the Spengler family returns to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse – to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level. But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.
Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire comes from the Afterlife co-writing team of Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan. Only this time, Kenan is in the director’s chair. The movie also stars: Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, Celeste O’Connor, Logan Kim, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts.
Hopefully, Ghostbusters, both old and new, kept their winter jackets close by when they unpacked their summer clothes. They’re going to need them when Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire comes to theaters on March 29, 2024.
