Ghostbusters : Afterlife : Early feedback from today’s screening!

The movie screened to a surprise audience at CinemaCon in Vegas today

Sony surprised attendees at today’s CinemaCon by showing them the highly-anticipated “Ghostbusters” revival.

“Ghostbusters : Afterlife”, released locally in December, teams a crop of fresh-faced proton-pack wielders, including Paul Rudd, with the OG cast Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson and Dan Aykroyd.

Director Jason Reitman was joined on stage by his father, producer – and “Ghostbusters” (1984) director – Ivan Reitman, who expressed joy at knowing the film wasn’t going to be a day-and-date streaming release like so many other films this year.

Said the younger Reitman, “I am honored to be here tonight on behalf of Sony because they are the only studio that is completely dedicated to theatrical distribution.”

He added, “For 40 years, the one question I was asked more than any other was are you going to make a Ghostbusters movie?” Ultimately, Reitman said he decided to do it because he “wanted to make a movie for my father and I wanted to make a movie for my daughter… Ghostbusters is a rare franchise, it doesn’t belong to the filmmakers, it doesn’t belong to me, it doesn’t belong to my father — technically it belongs to Sony — but it belongs to you.”

Introducing the screenplay, Reitman said : “You are about to go on the biggest Easter egg hunt of all time. From the opening musical piece to the end of the end credits, and all I ask is, please no spoilers… We’ve kept the ending secret so that people who come to your movie theaters (can discover it). I mean, if you like the movie, you can tell people that.”

We’ve heard some feedback from the screening and its VERY, VERY GOOD.
