“Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” Drops Official Trailer

We all know who to call when there’s something strange in the neighborhood—but what happens if that strange thing is a deep-winter cold front in the middle of July? That’s the question posed by Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire trailer, which finds the latest addition to the franchise blowing in on a blast of arctic air.

The official trailer for Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire has arrived, with the new film following the events in director Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife. The new installment comes from Afterlife co-writer Gil Kenan, who puts the heroes from the original film up against a new supernatural force that’s threatening the world with a second ice age. Frozen Empire finds Callie (Carrie Coon) and her kids Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) and Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) returning to New York City from the dilapidated Oklahoma house where the action in Afterlife took place. Callie’s father was Egon Spengler (the late, great Harold Ramis), and in Frozen Empire, the Spenglers return to the Big Apple and the iconic Ghostbusters firehouse where the team, including the original Ghostbusters—Dan Ackroyd’s Raymond Stantz, Bill Murray’s Peter Venkman, Ernie Hudson’s Winston Zeddmore, and Annie Potts’ Janine Melnitz—have created a brand new, high-tech research lab to bust ghosts at a whole new level.

Afterlife stars Paul Rudd returns as Gary Grooberson, Logan Kim returns as Podcast, and Celeste O’Connor returns as Lucky. Newcomers to the franchise include Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, James Acaster, and Emily Alyn Lind.

Kenan directs Frozen Empire from a script he co-wrote with Reitman.
